I remember back in my Health class awhile ago my teacher was discussing defense mechanisms. One thing he said was that laughing was one type of defense mechanism. What happened a couple days later proved that statement. He was talking about how some parents (especially Asian) always wanted their kids to get straight As but then he said that Bs were alright and above average. One kid in the class started to nerviously laugh when he said that (he was Asian by the way). I also was thinking in my mind how outrageous that statement was but I guess Bs are alright if you’re taking honors/AP classes or have sports, band, or whatever extracurricular activity you have or even worse, a combination of both. The point of this story is that we could all use more humor in our lives. So let’s hope I make your day 🙂 .
Introducing the iPhone 5S. In fact, I think that’s his only video that reached over a million views! Now you may be asking, “So what? One video doesn’t really matter.” Well, think of it as a grabber for a really awesome channel. I feel like he deserves more views, as he is clever in his humor while not being super inappropriate. A lot of his videos are funny rants, some serious and some humorous. I would consider his videos as satire, as they make fun of various things in society, especially Apple. Or you could see some as a farce, such as Sound Effects in Real Life. However, I don’t like Q&A videos and unfortunately there are a lot of those on his channel…
Secondly, although this could be considered action, Video Game High School. The plot is a gamer named Brian Doheny beats a very famous player named “The Law,” who is an international first-person shooter star. He goes to a place called Video Game High School and makes friends and enemies and finds love. Although I didn’t like the last season (unfortunately I didn’t have the time to finish it), I found this to be a pretty great action series but some concepts seem science fiction to me. If you ask me, it’s mostly action, but I think the last season had a good amount of humor, such as the detective work or partying. Out of the three seasons, the second is my favorite. My favorite character is BrianD, although sometimes he is a bit crazy in the series, but in the end everyone shows their dark side. BrianD is just a good video game player and is, for me, the most calm person on the show. I wouldn’t mind if Rocket Jump made Field of Fire an actual game though. You could consider this as a farce or a romantic comedy, but I just see it as an action web series. Fun fact: did you know Jenny and Brian are married in real life? Real love, guys, real love right there.
Lastly, Modern Family. Unfortunately, this is another TV show I couldn’t finish with my busy life. This is a mockumentary about three different families and how they interact. If you ask me, this is my favorite out of these three right here. This show always keeps a focus, which are the families and their interactions. Sure, Matthias usually makes fun of Apple products, but a majority of his videos are totally random, although it does give more fresh content. Video Game High School, is well, for video gamers mostly. Modern Family explores many different types of people, from gay to lesbian to typical American family to Latino and other people as well. The families go to different environments, such as birthday parties, golf courses, the American West, and many other places. In my opinion, the most entertaining family is Jay’s family, as the conflicting cultures always create some funny tension. This is a satire on American life and the different peoples it holds. There are romantic moments, involving kids and adults, so you could see this a romantic comedy.
