I wish I could feel joy >:(
Mark turns to him in his seat "reaction videos are dumb but bullying is more dumb. Enjoy the movie!"
He's not passionate about oh so macho shit like walking into a McDonalds with an AR15 slung over your shoulder, as if Ronald McDonald is suddenly going to spring out of the restroom firing like Rambo
What a weird dude, lol.
There’s enjoying something, and then there’s breaking down in floods of tears at the slightest innocuous detail. You release a reaction video, you’re competing for views with other content creators, which prompts more extreme reactions. The relation between any ‘reaction video’ and marketing for the either the creator or product makes me cautious to characterise this situation purely as an overenthusiastic fan being bullied online.
I don't really have an opinion on his reaction, didn't care for reaction videos even when they were the thing, but people used him as a launching pad for their spiteful hot takes. Which seems a bit much.There’s enjoying something, and then there’s breaking down in floods of tears at the slightest innocuous detail.

I will wear cargo shorts at a fucking black tie event hosted by the U.N. before ever even considering to place a serious thought towards this example of frat-boy douchebag bullshit.
I was referring to the fact that in his non Star Wars life he seems to have his head screwed on right. I don't understand what you mean? Disney is paying him to be a decent human being online?
I have a dream
I meant her best effort in trying to shitpost. That woman is sad.
Self-awareness and maturity allows one to feel emotion without displaying it in a way that makes other people uncomfortable or appears disproportionate, out of context and unhinged. If the guy reacts like that to a teaser trailer... how can he escalate for the full film... or the birth if his first child. Is there some displacement going on, a personal trauma which is feeding this reaction?Our enjoyment of media is subjective and the amount of people commenting on how "staged" this reaction is without any actual proof is kind of concerning.
Yes, people can react with screams and tears to the smallest detail, especially if they're a passionate fan. I'm 31 and when the last BOTW trailer was shown in January 2017 I screamed, I jumped and, yes, I cried. Should I feel ashamed about that ? Cringey even ?
We stop children from expressing themselves freely because that type of behaviour is often antisocial - or rather we learn to control how we express ourselves to as not how to behave anti-socially. It isn’t repressing anyone to say - maybe you shouldn’t record yourself having a total breakdown over a 30 second movie clip (of which very little was actually shown). I’m not saying that to be a dick, but this isn’t a healthy response.
I suspect there’s a psychological or comprehension problems if you’re regularly crying over reveal trailers.
I mean there’s acknowledging that it’s cringe and then there’s just shitting on his whole life.This whole thing feels so disingenuous to me. Like people are defending it just to stick it to the alt-right, but on any normal day some of those same people would have been talking about how cringy it is. Not about how it keeps them going and puts wind beneath their wings or whatever.
As ive gotten older, I’ve found i cry more at movies than i ever did when i was younger. i’m going to be a blubbering mess during Endgame.I bet Im gonna cry my eyes out many times during Endgame.
So anyone who has problems with men having an emotional reaction to something gotta take some time to reflect on themself.
And fuck anyone harassing, attacking or having any problems with the dude in the video.
