Watching Wednesday #21 – Wacky Wiseguys
The short of it: Subvert yourself with a smirk for success.
In a world full of YouTube content creators, it gets extremely easy to lose track of the weekly schedules and output of the genuinely entertaining ones.

Creators can flanderize themselves in an attempt to draw in viewers and gain infamy.
