      It's honestly extremely sad how this is only of Matt's lesser viewed videos. And even then most of the comments are jokes of some kind or at the very least not completely serious.
      What he is addressing here is a very serious problem in the information age and needs to be taken much more seriously; and as he says, it's not a problem to be addressed by the companies or creators but by each individual to themselves.

              *Well, I guess we, as a society, are just fucked! If critical thinking is a prerequisite to watching "documentaries, or anything else, the world has come to a bad place. We now send our kids to universities - those "bastions of higher learning" - to be **_indoctrinated_** with modern Marxist views and thought processes. Since the universities haven't taught critical thinking for at least 30 years now, and with the majority of our kids now attending a university, society is **_doomed..._*

                Okay so if you really think about this video,matpat is lampshading and also says he lies and that every YouTuber lies,so does that mean that we can’t trust Matt either on what he says?🤨

                        It's just you, that sounds awful. Shanes videos are ladels full of one sided portrayals, and while not technically incorrect, are still not truthful nor even a half-assed attempt at low-bias. Constant excuses for the subject, validating "you spoke your truth" junk framed as trustworthy and final, all while pretending to be dark and hard hitting.

                      Has anyone else notice that every time Shane or anyone else is about to talk about something “sad” , they always stutter.🤨

                      Ah, May your funny, lamp shading at the end.

                        Jake: like, if this is gonna hurt you I... don't wanna do it
                        me: good fucking christ that sounds both surreal and gay- (probably supposed to sound surreal but my brain is stupid)

                              Honestly, this channel has been amazing for me and my personality, disclaimer, this comment will be rather long so if you don’t care about anything too long then just go ahead and skip it, also Srry about this. The first video that I saw of game theorists was the, he must burn fnaf theory. And since the first thing I saw was a anime of Chica I instantly left, and then I saw your dori theory, and I was like “who made this and where have you been all my life”. So since then I kept having that he must burn one in my recommended section. Well I finally watched it, and what I saw was amazing, it honestly was and still is one of my favorites. I had seen some theories before but all of them pailed in comparison, to the game theorists. You guys were the only ones I thought actually could be right, I soon after got discord and found the game theorists community, and I posted theories on there. And the community was so kind, I got some positive points thrown my way and some constructive criticism, it’s really changed the way I think about YouTube, movies, and the community as a whole, thanks for this adventure guys and have a great life!

                                              So I dont think Shane does any if this on purpose he is just probably using good filmmaking and director tricks rather than all the thechinal stuff

                                                      Almost a year late to the party but I LOVE to hear myself talk!

                                                      I think that Shane just legitimately doesn’t think about these things: e.i. framing, lamp shading, priming, etc. He very obviously wants to make the series dramatic and that, to me, feels like his main goal. I don’t think he really has a deeper understanding of film language; he kinda just presses record and finds whatever story he wants in editing. Which is interesting considering he’s made a movie and says that he wants to be a director.

                                                      I also just remembered that he loves horror movies which makes SO MUCH SENSE given your example! He’s editing his docu-series like horror films or psychological thrillers.

                                                            Promoting critical thinking is obviously good and the next thing I have to say, I hope it doesn't come across as Shane worship because that's not my intent. I don't believe it's fair to say that someone who's been on YouTube since 2005 shouldn't experience anxiety. It's not like the more people who tune in and passively or actively give you money make you automatically more confident. Mood disorders don't just disappear if you get enough positive attention.

                                                            When I watched those Shane docu-series last year, sure, I was persuaded a little bit on my opinion of Jake Paul but never to the point where I visited his channel or gave me more thought in any long term positive regard. But I'm also 24 while Shane's audience is primarily tweens and children who are always ready to worship - and that of course is dangerous. These folk need to apply critical thinking, for sure, otherwise they give problem children like Tana and Jake more power and authority.

                                                            Just because you can point blame at other people, doesn't mean you can't still hold the original person in question accountable for his actions. And the fact that he still holds his deranged family in high esteem is a huge give away to his truth. I can see the pointing of fingers was an attempt to make Jake appear innocent but you can't be innocent when you still willingly and happily go back to these people without conscience. Is Jake a sociopath? I firmly believe he's on the ASPD scale, for sure.

                                                            And with Shane's manipulative tactics, I honestly think he was primarily applying his honest emotions into it. This is how he felt while filming and he wanted to convey and exaggerate those feelings in the form of his editing style. There's nothing wrong with that in it of itself but I do agree it came off as showing Jake in a more favourable light, which I disagree with entirely. Same with Tana. I don't think she deserved the praise at all. But with Jeffree Star, I didn't see much wrong with that one but I also had nothing to go on, I heard no critiques before that coverage, unlike with Jake and Tana. But it did come off as more genuine because Jeffree was way more willing to share his past and his mistakes. We didn't get any of that from Tana and Jake.

SHANE ISN'T THAT EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE DOING BY CREATING THIS SERIES???" A narcissist working with another narcissist to achieve fame, fortune, and attention. THAT is what I get out of Shane and the Paul brothers. None of it seems genuine.

Maybe i will in my upcoming absence from work. maybe.

                                                                                          I'm not saying Shane's perfect, no, neither are you, neither am i, but i consider myself as fan of both, and one thing is bashing a product (whether it is a movie, series, game, situation, thing, etc.) but doing it to a person... Dear MatPat, i thought you were better than that. and i have lost the respect i had for you. Good day sir.
