I'm not gonna watch this, but I do understand her frustration. When it happened to me and several other poesters I shrugged it off; it was actually a little flattering in a weird way, but I'd imagine being incredibly pissed off if I was writing a song that I kind of disgarded and my roommate turned it into a money-making hit. This is the Shakespeare/Marlowe or Mozart/Salieri of our time, people!
I can definitely see the parallels to Shakespeare (in his distinctive command of language and ability to coin memorable neologisms), but I'd say he's more our Van Gogh - a misunderstood genius, being tormenting to death by teenage bullies.
Re: her frustration, I don't think you follow Christine as closely as some of the rest of us, right IZ? In any normal circumstances, her frustration would be understandable - however, the shit going on here is following a pattern that's obvious to longtime watchers of Chris, and -should- be obvious to her, too... except, well, autism. She doesn't understand people's motivations, and doesn't learn to interpret social behaviors as a normal person would.
Basically, Francine is a combination of two or even three different classic troll sagas:
** the Liquid Chris saga, in which a troll posed as "the real Christian Weston Chandler" and elicited reaction videos much like this one.
** the Miyamoto saga, in which a troll pretended to be a Nintendo executive interested in making an official Sonichu video game.
** and maybe also ABL, a troll who got under Chris' skin for drawing (and profiting off of) a Sonichu knockoff product, Asperchu. Chris' fight with ABL and ABL's cyberbully gang led to the spectacularly violent conclusion of Sonichu 10, the end of the comic and the original website, and Chris' initial retirement from the art world.
It's obvious to everyone except for Chris that Francine is just fucking with her, and that these reactions are exactly what Francine wanted.
Interesting. You're right, I'm a casual CWC follower at best, but I was thinking more about the monetary gain aspect than anything else. Like, I could go on some other website and pretend I was you (theoretically of course) and you might think that was shitty, but if I began selling copies of your artwork saying I was you, that's a whole different level of shittiness that goes way beyond trolling and into theft of intellectual property, which is doubly hard for her to fight because I doubt if the characters in the Sonichu universe are protected the way DA artwork might be.
Oh yeah, it's definitely a shitty thing to do, and I can understand why Christine would get upset! Unfortunately, Christine's been through his before. This person is (probably) not trying to profit off her; rather, he's trying to trick Chris and trap her into doing stupid stuff for his amusement. Chris, of all people, should know this - and yet she doesn't. All these years, and she still hasn't learned a thing.
You can say what you want about Christine and her naivety, but she's got a lot of heart and she's really committed to her calling. Most internet anti-celebrities wise up and vanish after a short time in the spotlight - JustinRPG, Jessi Slaughter, Alix Henriol, the Rats of NIMH lady - but not Chris. Chris is a trooper. You gotta admire that.
As Archie Lux likes to point out, the only way to get traffic on the internet is for men to act like buffoons and women to show their tits. Chris in his usual style tries both simultaneously. It seems to be working.
Oh, and god bless you EvilHomer, you're doing the Lord's work.
This also reminds me of CWC's calling out sagas. Somebody must give him the info on the trolls and Christine then swaggers about like she has the ultimate weapon in her purse. It was going well he got Surf Shack Tito to give into his demands and he revealed Alec Benson Leary, but then Bob Died and with him that saga. I love this video.
Yeah, Swagger Chris is one of my favorite Chris'es, right up there with Magnanimous Chris. What makes the Troll Outing series of videos so great is that when the reveals come, it's always some super-famous internet image that everyone would recognize straight away - everyone except Chris.
Apparently the latest joke is that "Francine" is actually ADF, the gay socialist fatso whom the ChrisChan trolls hate almost as much our hero. I'm not sure whether *Chris* thinks this, or whether it's just a rumor the trolls started to piss off ADF, but this is shaping up to be a pretty interesting holiday season.
Yeah, that's a good point, BiggerJ! I've heard people say that before, and I think you may be right. Sonichu was intensely personal and autobiographical for Chris (this is one of the reasons why I honestly believe that Sonichu, for all it's technical flaws, should be considered high art; Chris pours so much of himself into his work, and gives we the readers that rare opportunity to see the world through entirely different eyes), so intruding on his sanctuary must have been devastating for him.
No matter what crazy bullshit Chris got himself into in the real world, he was always able to go back to CWCville, a place where he could be genuinely happy. I think that was the main reason why he was so tough and resilient over the years, so it'd make sense why the forced murder of Simonla could send him into exile.
I also don't think it's an accident that he resurrected Simonla in Sonichu 11. It's his way of saying, CWCville is back, the Mayor is still in control.

Chris-Chan criticizing a transwoman for not passing/being feminine enough. Then, criticizing a man for being a brain on the social security system.
What's the LD50 for irony?
