So as South Park recently brought up, the living room is dying. People are slowly moving away from prime time viewing in favor of online streaming that better serves their busy schedules. In that spirit, and for probably the only time ever, Channel Surer will proclaim it’s Top 5 (probably) channels you can watch on YouTube!
Gaming: Super Best Friends Play
I should warn you; this channel is only for those who are prepared for the HYPEST GAMEPLAY ON YOUTUBE. Matt, Pat, Woolie, and Liam form the Best Friends Zaibatsu, an incredibly powerful international syndicate that plays Sonic games and complains about dumb bullshit. With multiple daily LPs, this is one of the best gaming channels on the web.
Vlogging: BF vs GF
For those that mainly watch Youtube for trailers and music videos, there is an entire corner of the site dedicated to people video tapping their everyday lives for our amusement. This is apparently what the site was used for back in the day. Who knew? Everyone has different tastes, but is you want to watch a boyfriend and girlfriend hang out and occasionally prank each other; you too could become part of the Dope Fresh Nation.
Positivity: Tyler Oakley
If you’re down on the dumps, do what I do. Get a tug of ice-cream and watch that video tape of you snapping your knee and ending a promising figure skating career. Then turn on YouTube and look for Tyler Oakley, an incredibly charming and funny YouTube veteran. With a video every Friday and downright infectious laugh, he’ll turn that frown upside down.
TV/Movies: Morning Movie News
Believe it or not, but even super cool and good looking 8CN contributors need help every once in a while. So when I’m looking for the latest story, I like to tune in to Grace Randolph’s Morning Movie News (as well as her other channels), which deal with the implications of recent movie developments. Everything from the latest superhero movie casting rumors to box office intake, to even trailer reviews, this one is one to watch.
Education: Crash Course
Now, I was half tempted to put Game Theory on here, but everyone knows you can’t learn things from video games. That’s just silly talk. So instead I recommend Crash Course, a channel starring Fault in Our Stars author John Green and his brother Hank. The brothers provide a 15 minute-ish lesson on mostly History and Science, with some Literature and Psychology thrown into the mix. So if you’re learning bone is inching, you should watch this instead of scratching it in public.
I should also point out that I have literally not watched every single thing on YouTube, so if you have any channel your love, fell free to voice your love on the comment below!
