No this is not funny.
Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.
These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.
No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.
For wanting to play games.
For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?
This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.
This is a sure fire way to get your kids to hate you.
do people not understand how much video games cost?
Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. Some people are good at it. Very good. Do not squander your child’s talents, help them realize them and strengthen them. There are other ways to get your child outside without destroying their games and everything they work for. This won’t solve anything; this will only set them back further.
do this to your childs anything and they will automatically hate you/not trust you
It doesn’t matter what it is
It doesn’t matter if its their video games or if its their smoking pipe
If you just destroy it/throw it away, you are giving no explanation as to why it’s bad/you don’t want them to have it
This can actually psychologically mess a kid up because you teach them that if someone doesn’t like something, they should destroy it
That can lead to some serious problems with socializing with others and other things
dont do that to people
I had a notebook I used to write in all the time. I did that thing that Margo did in Paper Towns where she criss crossed her writing, but I did it so I’d have enough room to write everything. I took it everywhere wtih me and wouldn’t let my parents even start the car unless I had in in my lap. My dad got really annoyed by this and said I needed to throw the notebook away, what was written in it wasn’t important anyway (it was to me, very much so). So one day he took and ran it through the paper shredder.
Ever since I’ve had an intense fear of losing my notebooks and currently have a colletion of 53 blank notebooks and 16 that have been written in because I’ve started hoarding them.
Long story short, don’t fucking do this to your kids. You think it’s harmless and some people even think it’s clever, but you’re really just an asshole and are causing actual psychological problems for your children.
I have a plush rabbit that I’ve had since Easter of the year I was born (I was about 2 months old when I got it). It quickly became a comfort thing for me and I used to go everywhere with it as a child. When my mum and dad split up was when I became kind of dependent on having it around.
If ever I did anything wrong mum always threatened to take it away from me, which obviously caused my 6-year-old self to kick and scream and cry because I needed it.
One day I lost it for 6 or 7 months (turns out it was in my room the whole time but shh it was very well hidden & neither myself or my mum know how it got there)
That was the point that my mum realised she couldn’t threaten to take it away because holy shit I changed so much in those months.
Seriously, if your child is dependent on something, or takes great comfort in having it around
DO NOT TAKE IT FROM THEM.
It does not matter how old your child is, what their comfort item is, if it’s a video games console - don’t take it from them. If it’s their phone - don’t take it from them. If they’re 18 and still sleep with a teddybear - don’t take it from them.
This also goes for if your child is self-harming. If they have a blade in their bedroom and you find it DO NOT THROW IT OUT. Talk to them about it, be as supportive as you can, but do not think “oh well if I get rid of it they’ll be fine”. It can be seriously distressing and also lead to them becoming creative with what they use.
Getting a job and becoming an active member of society is important, but this is not the way to get your kid to do so. As others have previously stated, this is how to get your kid to hate you. Have a problem with your kids? Talk. To. Them.
Stop acting like your kid’s hobby is hazardous. Video games, comic books, cosplay, stop assuming that something you perceive as strange has a negative effect, because I bet if this boy was into football as much as he was into video games this video would’ve never happened. Destroying what your kid loves will only create hostility, instead, try understanding it and not treating it like trash.
Dear god this is sad
Similar things used to happen to me on/off during the time that I was still living with my parents. I’m an action figure guy, always have been. I’ve always loved the idea of owning a 3-dimensional representation of a character that you really like. Being a voice actor, I feel that it even kinda helps me get inside their head a little easier.
Anyways, when my mother and my prick of a step-father saw that my grades were dropping in class- they immediately took the offensive, threatening to remove everything from my room and burn it so I wouldn’t have any ‘distractions’ to interrupt me from my schoolwork. Needless to say, I retaliated and was ultimately met with the ‘My house, my rules’ regime. Then one day after a heated argument, I came home from school and when I made it into my room, it’d been stripped clean. The only things that were left were my bed, dresser and the clothes I had in it at the time.
My step-father had taken probably $500+ worth of my stuff, put it in an old, rusted out oil drum and I came running out, full panic-mode just in time to see the last, small lump of the now-liquidy plastic melt into an unintelligible mass of shapeless gunk.
This happened a few times while I was living with them. When I got older into my teens, It got to the point where things started getting nasty. I didn’t care about them threatening me with burning my stuff anymore, that was replaceable. It was when my step-father would pick fights with me, literally spit in my face or tell me how stupid I was and how I’d never amount to anything because I’d always be ‘Just some dead-beat like your dad’ which, didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me because at least my actual father was a decent human being. My dad would go out of his way to spend time with me and make sure that I had everything I needed, still does in fact.
But yeah, despite the shit that I had to deal with while I was staying with my mother and step-father, I still can’t bring myself to hate them for what they did. I’ve always had a hard time hating people. However, I don’t intend on spending any more of my time drowning in the negativity of that household.

So while Gideon was summoning Bill, he was saying something in backwards, so I reversed it in Sony Vegas and I literally laughed.
Here the reversed version.

Actually, I think the kid is playing Minecraft. Which is essentially digital Legos.
Two generations of creative people, just different methods of expression. Let’s not shit on the digital age as much, ‘eh?
You know what’s great about Minecraft?
You don’t get lacerations from stepping on it.
You know what’s great about legos?
Your shit doesn’t get blown up because a green penis snuck up on you.

Dear white people,
Please stop cosplaying as PoC characters.
Anyone can cosplay as anyone/anything they want. Also, that’s the actual voice actress for Korra. She literally IS the avatar.
Its also funny because if someone with darker skin cosplayed a white character they’d talk about how brave and awesome the person is.
ANYONE SHOULD COSPLAY ANYTHING THEY WANT
