I fear we are rapidly heading towards this point.
Aside from the whole subscribe to pewdiepie thing. I think it’s meant as a deflection for bad behavior. Much like the whole edgelord early 2000s ‘ironic’ racism/fascism thing. It’s a way of coding something to seem absurd or devoid of sincerity when in fact the perpetrators are wholly sincere in whatever anti-social or fascist sentiments they’re admitting to. It’s really pathetic in my opinion that they try this kind of deflection cause they assume anyone over 30 isn’t going to “get it” cause they’re “the olds, lawl” or some crap like that.
The edgelords’ mamas were right when they warned their shitty brats their faces would freeze like that if they kept making that face. Pretend to be a Nazi for attention long enough…,

Yeah I used to follow William Osman’s videos-- interesting projects making things-- until he started talking reverently about this Pew idiot, and the videos got dumber and dumber, and I had to unsub. He wasn’t hiding his desire to ride coattails, and I generally like when YouTubers do projects together (eg. This Old Tony remaking Alex/French Guy Cooking’s pasta machine), but Osman’s pandering to idiots… [shiver]
Interesting metaphor. I would go with something more along the lines of assembling a nuclear fission reactor but badly underestimating the size and quantity of control rods necessary…

Would have gone with this clip, myself, but that’s mostly 'cos I didn’t know there were any clips of “Monkey Magic” in English…
There are a few full episodes on Youtube…
These people are not fans of PewDiePie, they are fans of the “subscribe to PewDiePie” meme.
