Sub 25 year olds are really switched on. Mr Beast is another similar to Morgz utter drivel content to an oldie line me but regularly get 25 million views each video. Kids are mesmerized. Kids are more likely to sit through ads as well so kerching.
Mr beast doesn't use ad's
Indeed. (Ew it feels dirty when we agree hehe )

Mr Beast certainly shouldn’t be lumped in with Morgz either, Beast is an amazing young kid - he gives away hundreds of thousands of dollars every week, raised $25m to plant more trees, he’s changed a lot of lives.

Example: bought a house, fitted it out fully with furniture, tech etc and then gave it to a pizza delivery driver as a tip.

Another: Bought all the cars in a second hand car dealership in a run down area then marked them all up at $5 or $10. So 20 or so people got new cars for virtually nothing.

I must be the only one on PH who likes his videos. No fake smiles or daddy's money cars, just honest tuned cars, by normal people.

The GTR owner seems alright but lots of the others come across as rather unhinged.

That GTR is pretty bonkers. I bet it's had obscene amounts of money spent on it. Mental.

He's spent 100k on it plus 40k to buy it.

Adam LZ (YouTube Vlogger, Drifter) made an interesting video recently where he spoke quite openly about 'spending money to make money' from YouTube views and ad revenue. He owns quite a collection of heavily modified cars that he has documented building and competes in the Pro 2 category of Formula Drift, all seemingly off YouTube revenue and selling merchandise under the brand 'LZ MFG'.

I know everyone makes choices in their life on what to spend their hard earned on but £100k ...... What!

And I'll say it again but how are the police not looking into these videos I do not know?

The ‘daddy’s money’ jealousy bug bear never seems to get old does it. Which one of these youtubers has a (typical PHer type) retired dad with a nice car that has pissed you off this time?

I wonder if you troll the supercar forums calling all the owners out for daring to have kids and nice cars thus creating the aforementioned abhorrent kids with relatively successful dads.

I’m not sure every one of LLFs guests are normal, Ricky seems normal, but certainly not all of his guests.

He also seems to count ‘DMO Deejay’ as a friend which is disturbing. No idea how the police picked Joe Achilles to target for speeding when people like him exist on YouTube.

DMO Deejay!!!! https://youtu.be/aZHQ1VeKm9g

What annoys me is that I got caught speeding whilst keeping up with traffic speed doing 36 (first offence in 17 years so got a the speed awareness course).

These guys are posting st up and nothing...... And guess this goes for all types of low life's who seem to skirt the law with no consequence

I don't watch many but its clear most are well off, and use YT as a platform to show off. Jealousy is a very weak argument. My brother is a millionaire, am I jealous, I don't really care.
I couldn't give a st about what latest trinket they are fawning over, they are clearly just lifestyle brands nowadays.
I was jealous of a golf Raylle on a LLF. The thing is you taint your words with your entrenched view point. I like supercars but I always been interested by 'lesser' cars . Material things of expense don't mean a lot to me.

Why would I, it is just pages and pages of pretty tedious stuff, usually values etc and not actually driving the cars, which again is why I don't watch Supercar videos usually, unless it is DM.

fking LOL. hehe


On a side note. As much as I despise LLF, clearly I gave that a click and Jesus that GT-R, the speed of the scenery in the side windows. Good lord that gains speed obnoxiously fast.

I hate LLF videos and don’t normally watch them, mainly due to the stupid fake accents they usually feel the need to use.
I watched the GTR one simply because I love the car and sound.
It was refreshing to hear the owner speak normally and not act like a paranoid dealer, even Ricky seemed to be managing to speak properly for the majority of the time

Really, really hope they were filmed on multiple dash cams and reported to the police for driving like that on a public road. All his vids demonstrate the same disregard for the rules of the road. If he knows that the cars are fast (which he clearly does), then book some time on a piece of private land and film several at once to make it cost effective. I like driving just as much as everyone on this forum, but that just takes the absolute pi$$. What a pair of tw@ts
