Not everyday can you find a YouTube creator that you can have a love hate feeling for. This week’s spotlight though is someone just that though. His name is Booggie2988. He is behind this persona.

Francis Destroys a Nintendo Switch

That is Francis. A satirical character created by Boogie. He represents how extreme and stereotypical a gamer or someone that has anger issues can act when things don’t go the way they want things to really go.

The reason though I chose Boogie isn’t because of Francis. Even if it is funny to watch. I chose him because he makes his viewers feels like they are friends with him. He doesn’t talk down to people or make you feel stupid. He is also one that can have an open mind to at least listen to things he may not agree or understand. However, there is more.

Boogie is someone that is very relatable. He is someone you can listen to and for me I can relate a lot to him and listening and watching videos of him when he talks on a more personal level I feel like I know where he has been to some degree. Not completely but parts of his life I can relate to. He is a crazy but cool guy. So, where does this love hate feeling come into play? Let me explain

Since I started following him alnost 5 years, especially early on, I cringed when he talks about politics. Because he and I have different views on things. While I do listen to what he has to say. Some things I just don’t get. I am though cool with it now. Though when I was hard headed I didnt want to listen at all.

Another thing I like about his channel is how he will share his feelings on gaming and what is happening in the industry. Something we both love to do. 

Boogie is someone that I looke up to when it comes to Youtube creators. I have been following him for almost 5 years. He is someone I will keep supporting because he deserves the support. He is a good guy and a guy that all people couls have in their lives as a friend. Cheers to you Boogie and may you have more awesome years to come and I hope goos times will always head your way.

My Youtube Spotlight: Mr. Safety AKA Cory Williams

My Youtube Spotlight: Mr. Safety AKA Cory Williams

Since 2006 I have been a Youtube user. I’ve had my own channels and at one time I had a small following of about 500 subs. However, finding the website was all by luck and chance. Today I will talk about the first video I saw on Youtube and the creator I have followed the longest. That’s where this weekly post comes in.

Each week I will talk about someone I have been following for a while. Youtube creators I look up to and can relate to as well. Today’s post will be that of the creator I have been follwing the longest.

He is the creator of this video,

Mean Kitty Song

The video is called Mean Kitty and the creator goes by the name Mr. Safety AKA Cory Williams. His channels are SMP Films where he has in the past posted crazy skits, funny and outrageous music videos along with videos that he talks personal about his life. His other channels are The Mean Kitty where he posts animal videos of his pets especially of Sparta and Live Each Day. A daily vlog that is very tame to what he has posted in the past. This channel focuses on his daily life as a father and family man along with his wife Kristen.

How I found out about him was through someone I knew that sent me a link to one of his first videos he posted on Youtube. At the time I was living out in the country and I was on dial up. Watching videos was a hassle. I though stuck with it and waited for the video to download. This is the video I waited for to download onto my computer.

Make Poop

That video made me laugh and I was officially hooked. As time went by he started to do more than just goofy music videos. He also did skits but what I found fascinating was more on his videos about him personal. In a few ways I was able to relate to him. He had a video about A.D.D.that unfortunately has been either taken down or turned to private.

He talked about how living life with A.D.D. wasn’t always the easiest for him. I was able tomrelatr to him so well, Another was a video about what’s ahead. That too was either tsken down or turned private. He talked about how you can’t count on everything. Things won’t always work the way you want but you can’t stop either no matter how tough it is. I was hooked to his videos. He was very relatable. Fast forward 11 years and I’m still following.

He went from the goofy and immature to a much more mature person and settled down too. As time went by though, for me however, he is still very relatable. Especially now that he has a family. I know the feelings. The ups and downs of being a family man and a father. Him being relatable made things easier for myself. I used and still use the advice he gives and gave in the past in my own life. I don’t think I will ever stop following him. He is still entertaining and as long as he puts out videos I will keep supporting him with watching and sharing his videos. Check out his content. You may find it entertaining as well.
