Film Theory: Why Pewdiepie’s Fiverr Joke Backfired


The Media vs. Pewdiepie! ►►
The Media LIES! ►►

This is one I wanted to cover 1) because many of you were requesting my thoughts and 2) because I think Pewdiepie’s situation can teach us all a lot of things about the nature of comedy and how comedy can be a force for good in the world.

And let me reiterate it here, since I’m sure people will jump to conclusions prematurely without watching the video: I support Pewdiepie. I’m a fan of his. I respect and enjoy his work. I agree with his stance on the media and am constantly infuriated by how they manipulate facts and events to generate headlines with no thought or concern for the impact they’re having on people. That said, I do think that Pewdipie could have made his “satire” on Fiverr more clear and targeted, thus avoiding this whole mess. This video is just meant to discuss what went wrong and what could be improved in the future!

Learning is exciting!
