One day the TenEighty subscription box will be fixed.
Until that day we will spend every hour of every day searching the depths of YouTube for videos worthy of the Round-Up. This week we’ve got dramatic hair style changes, fitness and ‘ghost-pooing’ (yeah, we had no idea what that was until a few hours ago either – don’t worry, it’s not as horrific as it may sound, and this article is sadly still very safe for work.)
BRUTAL GIRLFRIEND CHALLENGE – Callum McGinley & Sarah Close
Once upon a time – AKA the start of this video – Callum McGinley had hair. Spoiler alert: now he does not.
We’re more used to seeing his girlfriend Sarah Close looking quite innocent as she delivers amazing song covers, but now we’re seeing her in a somewhat different way. The delight on her face as she shaves patches and stripes onto Callum’s scalp (every time he answers a question about her wrongly) is beautiful.
Callum, work the new look mate. Work it HARD.
MY SOFA WORKOUT – Sam Bird
Grab your snacks and get comfy – Sam Bird’s latest video is all about using your sofa to get fit. Reps, sets, rests and other phrases we’re not quite sure about (apart from rests, they sound great).
In preparation for a topless photo-shoot for a magazine, Sam is taking us along as he gets his body in shape to be in front of the camera. It’s informative for anyone who wants to start exercising, especially for those who don’t fancy leaving the house (and lets be honest, gyms can be scary places with a lot of grunting people leaving their sweat on every surface – can you tell we’re not a fan?)
We’re exhausted just watching this.
My First Vlog (Episode One) – Miraduel
‘With comments such as “This whole video was nonsensical”, “#acid” and “new wave vlogging” this video from Miraduel certainly seems to be confusing people.
At one point he drips Marmite onto his face, smears it around and then licks it off his fingers seductively.
Sorry, are you looking for more reasons to watch it?! What is wrong with you?
WARNING- CONTAINS FISH! – Gary Tredgett
Gary Tredgett’s new video is just less than two minutes long but he somehow manages to cram fish, selfies AND dating related stories into it. Well done, Gazza.
On the fish note: he does actually raise a pretty good point about the labelling on food these days, and the absurdity of having to tell shoppers what a product contains even though the product is named after the food. Like, it’s the same as explaining to someone that a wooden spoon is made from wood. *facepalm*
On another note: we’re totally up for dating someone who loves haunted houses (watch the video, yo). Excitement, terror and the excuse to hold on to them – for safety, of course – it would be the perfect first date!
MY MORNING ROUTINE – Jake Mitchell
Most ‘Morning Routine’ videos are about people using cleansers on their skin, eating bowls of fruit and which makeup products create that perfect dewy look – Jake Mitchell’s has a lengthy section about his morning ‘ghost poo’.
There’s also a LOT of strutting around the house, performing in front of the mirror and an unbelievable amount of finger-clicking. It’s really quite impressive, and explains why Jake looks so damn great every single day.
Though, judging by his clock in the first scene, Jake’s mornings actually start at around 2pm. Goals.
More treats from this week
OK so we might have a bit of a thing for previous TenEighty cover star Bethan Leadley, and her new mash-up is great. Beyoncé and Britney Spears rolled into one with hella hair-grabbing and flinging. So good.
Emma Pickles eyebrow game is STRONG with this Pat McGrath inspired look. When we say strong we actually mean not-at-all eyebrow-ish and slightly weird, but it looks amazing. She can do our catwalk makeup any day.
One of your favourite YouTubers probably released a book this week, and we probably covered it, but if we didn’t just use your imagination.
You can tweet us @TenEighty or pop something on our wall over on our Facebook – both great ways to tell us which was your favourite video from this week! We’d love to know. Honestly. Why does this sound sarcastic?!
