“This world is made of sugar. It can crumble so easily, but don’t be afraid to stick out your tongue and taste it.”
The excitement of VidCon finally gracing British soil is starting to die down and we all have to get on with our boring and mundane lives. No more YouTuber meet and greets and panels for us. That is, until August rolls around and Summer in the City makes its return. Only a few months to wait, even if the weather does already feel like summer… Who else is already planning out their list of YouTubers they hope to see?
On with the Round-Up!
Marie Kondo-ing My Sex Toys! | Hannah Witton
This video combines our two favourite things, Marie Kondo and Hannah Witton, as Hannah goes through her massive box of sex toys and uses the popular sorting method to organise them.
The Marie Kondo method has recently risen in popularity after being the subject of a Netflix Original show, in which people de-clutter their homes by separating everything into categories and asking themselves if these items spark joy. Ever since, everyone has been using this method to organise their lives. Hannah joins in on the trend in the most unique way that is so true to her sex education channel. There’s something quite amusing about watching her root through dildos and butt plugs and clenching them to see if they spark joy.
room makeover. | eataliens
Jay of eataliens brings us on the journey of completely re-decorating her bedroom, with only small and simple changes. Her goal is to adult-ify the room a little bit, make it feel more homely and put her stamp on it, all things we need to do with our own bedrooms.
In this video, she walks us through every change she does. Everything has its own place and looks so perfect – it’s giving us serious bedroom envy. Be on the lookout for our own bedroom re-decorating video!
YouTube Is Over | ImAllexx
You may remember the “Adpocalypse” from way back in 2017. Many advertisers pulled their ads from YouTube after discovering inappropriate content was being monetised. It affected the entire site, leading to lower ad revenue and more videos becoming demonetised.
Alex Elmslie addresses concerns that YouTube may be on the verge of an Adpocalypse 2.0. This is after a Reddit campaign started actively encourage advertisers to pull their ads from YouTube after finding inappropriate comments on innocent, monetised videos – some companies have actually pulled theirs from the site because of this. But Alex is asking YouTube to do more. He’s asking the platform to communicate with its creators and tell them what they can do to stop their revenue being cut.
on turning 21 | Fearghalicious
Fearghalicious turned 21 this month and used this video to reflect on the past, the journey she took to reach this age and the things that once seemed gloomy, but are now better. She celebrated her birthday surrounded by her friends and threw a party centred around her birth year. This video shows just how much fun they had, with smiles all around.
For her birthday, she asked her friends for words, whether that be poems or quotes, all about being in your 20s. She featured the beautiful and meaningful words in this video, really making it feel that more special.
Battleshots – JACK VS DEAN | Jack and Dean
Jack Howard and Dean Dobbs return with their usual funny content, with a video that’s hilarious, at Dean’s expense. (So just like a typical Jack and Dean comedy sketch.)
The pair play Battleship, but with the added feature of when you sink someone’s ship, they have to drink an awful shot or do a dare, which makes for quite an interesting game. However, Jack secretly didn’t have any shots while Dean had to do all of his… What a sneaky and diabolical guy!
Since we can’t stop at just five…
