Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla of the most subscribed channel on YouTube, "Smosh", are looking to raise $250,000 on Indiegogo to make a video game based on their popular series on YouTube, "Food Battle".
How much money do they make? yeah. I would not fund it.
exactly, and considering they are the most subscribed channel http://socialtimes.com/mone... that was 2012
They can pay for their own videogame. Why even bother asking for money?
Considering these two loosers get paid a ton of money for their channel....fund it yourself, cheap gits
Its like celebs that donate to charity... They get funda than donate them, people are dumb supporting someone who make milllions.
"Its like celebs that donate to charity... They get funda than donate them, people are dumb supporting someone who make milllions." Uhhh, isn't that good. Celebrities getting money, then donating that money? Also, watching their movies, isn't that the same as supporting them? Because if a movie is really good, I'd support the actors and cast and crew by watching the movie in theaters and buying the Blu-ray. If someone like Michael Bay goes to these kick starter sites, and asks us to donate $5M to make Transformers 4, would you? Revenge of the Fallen and Dark Side of the Moon were complete crap, but I would like a T4, because if T1 was actually good, then I have hopes T4 can redeem the movies. What I don't want however, is paying that guy. He's made hundreds of millions on Transformers, is there any reason to give him any more money? Now, if it was a very unknown director, but has made decent but fascinating movies in his track record, and he needs the extra money to fund his next movie project, then yeah, I'll support him.
"Smosh is a web-based comedy duo consisting" comedy? u call their show comedy? people are watching and supporting two emo losers who their show is NOT funny at all! People are so stupid these days :facepalm:
Hit the nail on the head. You made me laugh funny webshow *throws money at the screen*
Translation:"If I don't find it funny, then obviously it is not in anyway shape or form funny because my opinion is fact. also, putting not in all caps makes it a definite fact, and if people find it funny, then they are just not as smart and cool as me and are emo too, emo is now a derogatory term because I said so" you really need a reality check, your opinion is not fact, and it also doesn't really mean much in the face of millions of fans, i'm not even a fan of smosh but I don't delude myself into believing that my opinion means more than millions of people
I like smosh but this is stupid.
I enjoyed them a ton when they first came out. I look at their stuff now and it all seems repetitive. That's how I expect the game to turn out.
These guys have enough money as it is. They can easily go fund this and ten other games of its kind.
Thought that said 'Smoosh' for a second.. Blast from the past..
Another bunch of rich folks asking us less rich folks for money... That's why I don't trust these kick starter things. Not saying all are scams, just that I'd rather not deal with it myself. There was this one thread on Neogaf, and it was about a millionaire wanting to send her 8-year old daughter off to RPG camp or whatever. Why in the flipping tuck would I give a millionaire money to send her useless daughter to game camp, when she can use her own greedy money to pay for it herself?? Anyways, should I give two guys who used to be funny but not anymore several dollars so they can pay off a game that they can spend with their own Youtube money, or should I just invest those several dollars into a PS4/Xbone? Unfunny people, or new consoles? *PS I know if I have nothing nice to say, I shouldn't just care about this article and leave. However, these guys make millions off of Youtube, and have several channels that also make them several more millions of dollars. If they are too greedy and cheap to use $250K out of the $???M they have, why shouldn't I question them?? It'd be like if we were in the school cafeteria, and I was the fat kid. I have home lunch, which includes a full chicken meal, soda, and desserts. Yet, once I'm done, I ask you for more food from your already small school lunch.
Again that nail was hit on the head.
YouTube is the death of comedy. Without the traditional gatekeepers, anything of quality is drowned out by this lowest common denominator bullshit.
Guess not alot of people here like Smosh. If people, dumb if they do, give their money, then its their choice. I like Smosh but not giving my money though. Pretty sure they're quite rich enough with their views.
