You scared him before I could watch it you fucking assholes!
Five stars regardless.
Hooray, it's back!
This guy will never change. He will go to his grave being Corky.
Yeah, it's too bad he nuked his channel before I could reply, because I probably could have given him a really good, rational analysis of why people hate him, and what he could do to change that. It's partially his looks, and those are both beyond his control and unfortunate, but I think there's enough stuff he CAN change that it may still be possible (albeit difficult) for him to rehabilitate his image.
Also, he seems to have missed the point of Stefan Molyneux and Teal Swan, which I think is the most important thing here. It's not that they're good looking (although they are) or that they're well-spoken (again, they are); rather, it's the fact that they appeal directly to their listeners, offering the listeners something personal and comforting (emotional support for victims of child abuse, in both cases) rather than simply lecturing them on politics and philosophy.
For example, I think if Nick redid his "I am Christ" video, and tweaked the wording a little to make it "You are Christ", he could actually start to gain a following on YT.
Nick, unfortunately, is emo. No one else makes the "appeal to Internet" fallacy. He totally fits in on the Internet and he is treated just as piss-poorly on it as everyone else. He just doesn't see it.
Fedsmoker is not an attractive man. We've watched him sex-skeeze on a meth'd out anorexic lamenting that her child was taken away. Yet, when he speaks, it's with a bravado and showmanship that makes us love him in the expressions on the faces of others.
What Nick lacks is a lot of videos where we can see the looks on other peoples' faces. Nick needs an audience and people need to see that audience see Nick.
Well, I was going to say he'd work better like CreationistCat - a semi-animated webseries were we never actually see his face, just a cat or a cute ferret speaking in Nick's voice - but I think "Teens React to Nick Bravo" would be a good publicity stunt, too.
Motivational speaker with a hand puppet, or electronic avatar on the side of an unmarked van like in Black Mirror.
*van pulls up, cartoon flashes on the side of it*
Hey, kids, want to know about how to be your own christ and self-motivate for success!?
*door slides open*
Of course he's already making videos and then immediately pulling them. I love how he is exactly the same. I love how there is more bottom for him to reach.
I mean, I do fine-ish and I often find life gruelling. The shit he go through to simultaneously survive and maintain his ego.
Post Baleen Stress Disorder.
Funny how right out of prison he tried to paint himself as some kind of reborn uber-mensch with the mind of Pascal and the spiritual fortitude of Buddha, but then turns into the biggest pussy at the tiniest sign of any online pushback.

Do I really have to sign in to view this video? I really don't want to do that.
Nick privated all of his videos and they can no longer be viewed on Youtube; his fans made a backup archive on Vimeo, so I updated the link.
8:58 made me really sad. :(
Stop it. There is no reason to ever feel sorry for this fuck.
Fuck this guy. He was given EVERY benefit of the doubt. When he was having his major problems with Happy Cabbie, even people who weren't on his side donated money so he could move out.
When he pretended to be homeless and starving, people donated money. He has lived off of people treating him like a human being in need when he was actually being a scammy, grifter shithead and he deserves not an ounce of pity or symapthy. The shit he pulled with real estate fraud was vile in the extreme.
This wasn't taking some property that some bank was using as a tax dodge and fucking over people that he then somehow re-claimed and gave back to deserving folk...he stole property from the rightful probate owners from DEAD PEOPLE, one of whom was an elderly woman. He can go fucking die in a ditch somewhere. It's too...TOO late for him to pull the sympathy card now.
Yeah, but he's basically saying that Punchy Sonichu was his only friend. He said Punchy Sonichu was his only friend, and then he committed e-suicide.
That's incredibly sad.
Sometimes I guess I may feel a twinge.
The guy was apparently, a quiet sort of social outcast once upon a time according to a few accounts. He decided like many to re-invent himself. Except all around him were images of 'Rockstar Assholes' like Activision CEO Robert Kotick, Donald Trump, Steve Jobs, etc. These guys were the Winners(tm). These were the guys you had to be.
So yeah, he became a total piece of shit. And all the bad behaviors we train ourselves to self-analyze and overcome within ourselves... He sorta didn't... Because using people is how you Play the Game. Right, kids?! Except Nick sucks at the Game. And it just makes everybody hate him. And he's not smart enough to not get caught. I think he even hates himself deep down inside. Of course at any time he could step the Hell back and realize this gig realllly isn't working for him.
He said Punchy Sonichu was his only friend and then he committed e-suicide! Haha! What a whimper to go out on! Love this guy!
