While I'm not a huge YouTuber (though my boyfriend has had me watch more Shay Carl than I can even properly wrap my mind around), it cannot be denied that there are a number of unique gems that have ascended all of the pointless nonsense, destined to become YouTube classics. I believe one of them is "The Online Gamer" comedy sketch series by Reckless Tortuga. Okay, maybe it'll never be a classic, but it's certainly an honorable mention. As of now, there are four videos in the series, and although I'm not sure if there's a fifth in the making, they are all quite funny.
That is, if you play games online.
If not, you may not be able to appreciate the Online Gamer's unmistakable, over-aggressive attitude, akin to that of so many real online gamers', or his awkward and obnoxious declarations of "LAG" and "HEADSHOT, B*@$!" My personal favorite is the fourth video where he is invited to have dinner with his new girlfriend/teammate's family, but all of them contain poignant gamer humor that should speak to just about anyone who's ever played online. His interaction with the WoW player in part 2 sure does tickle my fancy, as well as him making fun of the Wii in the fourth vid.
WARNING: Explicit content--lots of dropping of the "F" bomb. The 3rd and 4th videos are censored.
If you liked the first video, be sure to check out the rest.
