Fame, fortune, and popularity is something that many young people aspire to have, but how can they reach this goal if they have no other talents such as smarts, being in a sport, or even participating in a fine art? The answer is through online stardom.
When all creative ideas have been exhausted, however, people aspiring to reach online fame often hit a brick wall when thinking about what content to post. But, thanks to new Youtube Gurus, no longer must these aspiring online protégés suffer from build up of mainstream ideas.
“Yeah, in my last stunt I rode my skateboard over a manhole, blindfolded, while listening to XXXtentacion on blast,” up and coming youtuber, Lagan Pool said, “After that I fought an alligator in a boxing arena. If it wasn’t for the ‘Idiots Gone Mad’ channel, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
“Idiots Gone Mad” is a new channel to Youtube, bringing a new concept to the front lines of the online community. Their supposed mission is to help out new coming youtubers with fresh ideas, a Youtube enlightenment if you will.
“Our motto is ‘survival of the flyest’ essentially ‘survival of the fittest’ but more cool,” A representative of the group said, “But if we give you cool ideas, and you’re too chicken to play it out, you’re not that fly and need to give us compensation for your lameness.”
Though the group has a seemingly chaotic and uncontrolled way of going about their business, I.G.M. has had success in helping out more than half the population of online users. Their customers post multiple videos whilst giving credit to the channel.
“I haven’t been able to do more stunts for I.G.M. in a while because I have to stay at the hospital for six months, but in that time I’m getting to 600 subscribers and 1.2 billion views on youtube,” Pool said.
Whether or not the online community has accepted the I.G.M. channel is still up in the air, but due to their success and how inherently entertaining their videos are, no one has attempted to bring down the channel and its loyal subscribers.
