So I just watched Dodie's snapchat story and she had no idea what the fuck was going on with D&Ps song
Now I know people doing YT don't have time to watch all the videos uploaded ever, but like. This is what tends to annoy me about YTers being subtly shitty to/about D&P when they have no idea what it is they're actually doing.
Quoted from her snapchat:
Dodie wrote:So update: I'm at the afterparty and Phil won the category that I was nominated in which is wonderful obviously. I've never seen their performance or liveshow, and Dan and Phil sang a song at the end. It was really nice and so heartwarming. It was like 'even though we're socially awkward, we all belong,' it was really nice.
Like other creators don't really get why they have such a devoted audience, they think they're just guys fucking around with the Sims getting by because people ship them. That's an insult to everybody, D&P and
I take back my cringe at them performing the song because fuck yeah, that's what they're about and that's why people love them. The shipping shit is just a weird bonus if you're into that. So much of their content (including liveshows and tweet replies even) go by unnoticed by their peers who think they're just lucky. Like damn they work and put good things out into the world that their audience reflects back at them, damn right you RECOGNIZE IT.
