holla grates tomorrow. Totally forgot.
Wow, if the EZA merch turns out half as nice as the Funhaus merch it will be a huge upgrade. (Underwear not withstanding, haha)
Don't forget watches, glasses and grooming products.
To be fair, I don't think that's specifically Roost's fault though. I think it's the fault of the brands they are pushing.The worst thing about the Roost type ads profile for me is the way they word the copy, so many times I've heard someone on a podcast reading an ad saying stuff like:
"Well personally I am a [x] kinda guy, that's why i wear my [x] every day",
"I order a box from [y] every month and my wardrobe has never been more trendy or suited my personal tastes better",
"I was worried about my hairline but now with [z] I don't have to anymore and my confidence is through the roof" etc etc.
It's like the advertiser expects the reader to pretend to actually use their product, and the text comes across is as if meant to be taken as a genuine statement from the reader even while they use the 'ad-read' voice. So weird. Maybe it's actually very transparent and I'm just a dummy.
EZA has not done this as far as I know? No one ever said, for example: "Last weekend when I was desperate for keys iKeyless was there for me when I needed them" or some crap. Hopefully they don't start doing it likeAs much as I enjoy those podcasts the ad reads are so cringe.Funhaus or kindafunny
Sure, I'm all for the Allies being in a more stable situation concerning their finances, and also them getting to spend more time creating content rather than chasing $$$. Good for them and more power to them absolutely. Also I won't stop watching their video's even if they do end up reading those same ads in the same way, just puts me off a bit. A week or two ago I was listening to another of my favourite youtubers when they read an ad for a certain mobile game, they were clearly looking down at a page and reading something like:To be fair, I don't think that's specifically Roost's fault though. I think it's the fault of the brands they are pushing.
I have seen this on non-Rooster Teeth channels with the same brands. All of it is worded in the same way and while it might be that they also use Roost (I don't know), it just seems that some brands seem to think wording it like that works. I can almost guarantee you that Jones' read will be the same as it is on all those channels (and I agree with you in that I don't like that either).
But I don't understand how advertisements can get people to buy a product in the first place. I think I can count the times that I was tempted to buy a product because of an add on one hand (and it usually makes me not want to buy the product), but they apparently do work as they keep doing them.
And again, while I am not a big fan, I do understand why EZA went that route and I can see why it's probably better for the company. I just prefer hearing from patrons who care about EZA instead of some random big company who doesn't even know that their ads are on EZA's content and doesn't care how well EZA is doing. But I hope it does well for EZA and I will keep watching and supporting them.
that's now how ads work and you have been influenced by adds hundreds of times in your life. we all have.
Yeah I thought this for a while, I don't remember the exact number but back before Kinda Funny shook up their patreon they also had a similar sponsor / shout out tier, and it was MUCH more expensive than the EZA one.
That might be the case (I can't say for sure how much I was influenced, I was talking about having the incentive to buying a product), but the more annoying an ad is, the more I will actively try my best to never have anything to do with the product involved (yes, I'm a very stubborn person).
They used to have a $10K sponsorship tier. I remember seeing that as well and thinking that the allies were really undervaluing themselves BUT I do have to wonder how much advertising the allies will be able to do. I believe sponsoring kinda funny meant getting an ad read on every show that they do, which is a fuck ton, way more than eza does on a weekly basis. I doubt we will ever get to know the actual numbers for eza.Yeah I thought this for a while, I don't remember the exact number but back before Kinda Funny shook up their patreon they also had a similar sponsor / shout out tier, and it was MUCH more expensive than the EZA one.
EDIT: Looks like they (KF) have various shoutout tiers at $250, $500, and $750 now (similar to what EZA has/had), what I saw before seemed like an actual sponsorship type deal and it was way more than that.
huh? 11:30pm to 1:30 am is 2 hours
I bet they stanned RE2 really hard
