  • Man... [knocking] Coming!
  • Drew: Oh hey landlord! Landlord: Hi. Didn't I evict you last month?
  • Drew: Yeah, but I... I thought we were just doing, like, a skit. Landlord: No, no, no. Drew. This is YouTube.
  • You wouldn't put something on YouTube if it didn't actually happen.
  • This is a real life, baby. This right here is as real as it gets.
  • Drew: Okay, well bye.
  • Landlord: No, no, no, Drew, I don't think you heard me. You gotta pay your rent.
  • Drew: Oh, so what you're saying is I gotta pay rent.
  • Landlord: Yeah, I just said that.
  • Drew: That's alright. You know why? Landlord: This is the same exact bit as last-
  • Drew: Cuz I'll just do a brand deal!
  • Voiceover: Today's video is sponsored by Audible! To get a free audiobook and a 30 day free trial,

  • Landlord: So I'm just gonna stay right here then? Drew: Uh huh.
  • Hey little stinkers, and welcome back to the first and only channel on YouTube.
  • Today we're gonna be looking at some very interesting family vloggers.
  • Now, as an adult, I really enjoy watching family vlogs because it reminds me of when I was a kid
  • and my parents would follow me around with a camera all day long until I did something funny
  • so we could pay our mortgage.
  • Oh wait. No that never happened, because I didn't grow up in 2018: the worst year to be a kid.
  • I think the problem that tends to arise from these family vlogs is the same that arises from every vlogger.
  • It's that the line between real life and content gets blurred a little bit and you start doing things that
  • maybe you shouldn't do because more people will see it and you'll make more money.
  • Let's take this channel I found, DavidsTV, for example.
  • They're a vlogging channel with a little bit over 800,000 subscribers.
  • Since people like this do rely on YouTube for their full-time income, views become so important.
  • Views come before anything else.
  • You know, why would you bother making a video called "Twins Telepathy Challenge" that only gets 16,000 views
  • when you could combine Fortnite with the phrase "mom freaks out" and make like 5 grand in Adsense.
  • But this video is called "Kid spends $200 on Fortnite and buys 27,000+ V Bucks and Mom FREAKS OUT [MUST WATCH]".
  • Now, I don't know about you guys, but I always do what I'm told.
  • so if someone tells me in the title of a video that I must watch it,
  • well, I'm... I'm gonna watch the video. It's just how daddy raised me.
  • [Kid: Guys, today we're gonna spend all my parents' money on Fortnite.]
  • I will say though, the little kid, the younger kid is the cutest kid I've ever seen.
  • He has a couple savage moments in this video. He's kind of a little snitch, but it's funny when he does it, you'll see.
  • [Kid: My mom and dad promised me V Bucks, and they haven't gave it to me yet. And there's my dad sleeping.
  • Come on guys, let's go to my computer.
  • Guys, I'm super nervous, I hope I do not get in trouble.
  • Purchase. And guys, look my dad's credit card number is already in here. Place order.
  • We got it! Yes! We got the V Bucks.
  • Know what this means. Let's go spend away. Wow, this looks cool.]
  • Drew: Okay. So, putting aside the fact that this is obviously fake,
  • Let's pretend that it's not fake and like, let's go through the thought process of these kids.
  • I'm not blaming the kids for this because this was not their idea. But let's say this was their idea, right?
  • They're gonna steal money from their parents to buy
  • Fortnite, you know, currency.
  • So... why would they film it?
  • It just seems kind of silly when you're trying to do something secretly, and keep it a secret
  • to like... document it.
  • But to be fair, even though I assume it's fake, it's still hard to tell because their acting is so good.
  • [Older kid: Let me know in the comments below what you think I should buy next.
  • Younger kid: But, don't, you're gonna get in so much trouble. You just spent, uh, $100 on daddy's credit card.]
  • Drew: You have to get the (read the-) you have to use the (just read what's on the card) you got the Fortnite. (holy sh*t)
  • I don't even blame the kids for being bad actors. You know why? Cuz they're kids! They don't need to be good actors.
  • This is... They shouldn't be acting at all!
  • It's just like so painfully obvious that, you know,
  • they... the mom tells them what to say and then they say it and they kind of look up like,
  • ready for my next line, Mom, and then like she gives them both the line and you can see the one kid says his,
  • and then he looks at the other kid because he knows the kid now has to say his line.
  • I don't know who they're fooling.
  • Ok, so then their plan was to go buy some Fortnite dollars on the dad's computer.
  • [Older kid: We're gonna spend $100 on his account, and, it'll make him feel better.
  • But this way, he'll be on our side, fighting against Mom when she finds out.
  • Younger kid: Yeah, let's go do it! Older kid: Come on!
  • Older kid: We did it! Daddy, wake up! Wake up! Let's go play Fortnite!
  • Dad: What did you... Where's Mama? You guys making a video?
  • Both kids: Yeah. Dad: About what?
  • Older kid: Uh... Fortnite. Dad: I'm down, let's do it.
  • Dad: Mommy's gone. The mice will play, as they say.]
  • Drew: Uh oh! There might have been a flaw in their plan because when they play Fortnite with the dad,
  • the dad has all the V bucks on his account and he's got the new, the thing that they got.
  • So he recognizes right away that they spent money.
  • [Dad: Did you guys buy V Bucks? I said you could buy V Bucks, remember? Did you guys buy V Bucks?
  • Younger kid: ...yeah.]
  • Drew: This kid's so cute. He can't even bring himself to lie.
  • [Dad: Do you feel guilty at all?
  • Older kid: A little bit. Younger kid: I don't feel guilty, because Dylan did it.]
  • Drew: I don't feel guilty, because I didn't do it.
  • [Dad: You spent $200? Dylan: Uh huh.]
  • Dad and Drew: Oh my god, aah, oh my gosh, oh no, oh my god, oh my gosh.
  • Drew: Way to sell it, Dad.
  • [Dylan: Let's not tell Mommy.
  • Dad: Well, she's gonna find out guys, cuz guess what?
  • We get text messages on our credit card any time money is spent over $10.]
  • Drew: One of my favorite twists in this video is what happens here seamlessly.
  • After the dad just discovered that they stole $200 from him, first of all, he like, laughs it off.
  • Like well, that's fine. Cuz I wanted to, I wanted the skins anyway, so I'm glad you stole money from me.
  • [Dad: But I'm not complaining cuz I wanted a skin bad.]
  • Drew: Hear that, kids watching? I'm not even upset that my children stole money from me.
  • So if you stole money from your parents, they might not be upset, cuz look, I'm not.
  • But then like immediately after with no cuts, he just transitions into having this, like, whole speech prepared.
  • [Dad: Just so we can make this right, we're gonna give away a hundred dollars worth of V bucks to you.
  • Give a thumbs up on this video, subscribe, hit the bell icon and leave us a comment.
  • You guys think that's a good idea? You think our fans will like that? Dylan: Uh huh!
  • Mom: Hi guys, what are you doing? Dad: Playing Fortnite.]
  • Drew: Alright, so the kids are really bad actors, the dad's a really bad actor,
  • there's no way the mom is also a really bad actor, right? Just based on like general probabilities.
  • [Mom: I got two really interesting text messages from American Express. Dad: Oh, really?
  • Mom: Brandon, we need to talk. This is serious.] Drew: Brandon, we need to talk. This is serious.
  • [Mom: Large purchase on American Express. Look at that.]
  • Drew: I just noticed this. The text right before that says "Welcome to Account Alerts."
  • Like if you weren't convinced this was fake already. They made it clear that for this video,
  • they signed up for account alerts that they weren't getting before.
  • Unless this is the first time they've ever spent more than $10 on their credit card.
  • [Mom: $200 on Fortnite? Dad: It was me. It was me.
  • Younger kid: No it wasn't!]
  • Drew: The kid! Oh, that face! He wants to help, but he's not sure if he's helping.
  • "No it wasn't!" I love that kid so much.
  • [Mom: And am I happy about this? No!]
  • Drew: Yeah, we can tell.
  • [Mom: I'm gonna take Jagger, and we are gonna go shopping.
  • Jagger: You already went shopping.]
  • Drew: Okay, another slip-up here.
  • It's pretty obvious to me at this point that the mom was the one who was filming earlier,
  • because she says, like, "Well, I'm taking the boys, and we're going shopping."
  • And then the one kid reminds her, "But mom, you just were shopping remember?"
  • [Dylan: You just literally walked in the door from going shopping.]
  • And she's like, oh, yeah.
  • [Mom: I went shopping for the three of them to buy clothes.]
  • She literally slaps her forehead as she remembers that she was supposed to just be shopping.
  • Okay, and then the dad goes into his whole spiel about like. "Alright guys, well remember, we're giving you $100."
  • [Dad: $100 giveaway, ten $10 gift cards.]
  • Drew: And then she, even though she wasn't here earlier for this conversation,
  • she was out shopping right? She's like, "That's right guys. I knew about this."
  • Such a disaster. Totally fake.
  • But again, I don't care that it's fake, everything on YouTube is fake.
  • It's less about the fact that it is fake and more about, like, what they're promoting.
  • Because then at the end of the video, the dad says this:
  • [Dad: Alright guys, leave a comment if you've ever charged under your parent's credit card without them knowing.]
  • Drew: And she agrees! [Mom: Yeah.]
  • Hey, what about maybe not saying that?
  • What about, you don't encourage the children who watch your videos to do what your kids did,
  • even though you've already sort of encouraged it by being so nonchalant about it.
  • Like the mom comes in and freaks out sure, but the dad, initially the initial reaction was like, "oh you stole my money
  • But you gave some of it back to me. That's fine." You might be thinking like well, this is so fake,
  • It's so obviously fake that they're not like...
  • Anyone can watch this and discern for themselves that this isn't real and that they shouldn't do this, but that's...
  • We're adults. We're adults talking about this, right? Like, adults don't watch this. Why would an adult watch this?
  • I know for a fact that exclusively children watch your videos, because adults don't talk like this.
  • [reading comments on screen]
  • Sorry Vincent, punishment fits the crime.
  • That's... we're not celebrating this. That's not something to celebrate! That's not good!
  • [reading comments]
  • Finally a good role model here:
  • [reading comments]
  • "My parents won't give me money to buy fake clothes because they're selfish. But thanks for listening to me."
  • [reading comments]
  • This is your audience. This is who watches your videos.
  • Do not make what is essentially a tutorial on how to steal money from your parents
  • and then, as the parent, pretend it's totally cool.
  • I know that kids already do stuff like this.
  • I know that kids steal their parents' credit cards all the time and they buy absolutely pointless garbage
  • and I don't entirely blame the kids in that situation. Like, they should know right from wrong,
  • obviously you should know not to do that.
  • I don't think they fully grasp what they're doing
  • because it's absolutely impossible to conceptualize the value of money as a child.
  • Like, an example for me:
  • When I was like eight years old, my family and I used to watch Who Wants to Be a Millionaire a lot.
  • And I remember watching this show, and I always thought,
  • man, if they're giving away a million dollars, it must not be that much money.
  • And so I very casually asked my mom. "Hey mom, we have a million dollars, right?"
  • And she's like, "No. No." And that shook me to my core.
  • I could not fathom the idea of us not having a million dollars, or, based on the way she answered the question,
  • apparently not even close to a million dollars.
  • I truly believe that it is impossible to understand the value of money and like,
  • how much work it takes to get a certain amount of money,
  • until you get a crappy part-time job,
  • dealing with angry guests who take everything out on you, incompetent managers,
  • you gotta mop. You've never had to mop in your life. Now you're mopping all the time,
  • and you feel tired and sweaty constantly, and then you get your paycheck and it's like 11 dollars,
  • and you're like, "Oh... life is hard."
  • But when you're a kid, you don't have that perspective yet.
  • Yes, you should know not to steal from your parents,
  • but, like, a credit card just seems like an infinite money device.
  • Like, as a kid, it's just like, I type these numbers in and I get whatever I want.
  • And it doesn't affect my parents because I don't know anything about anything.
  • But as an adult, you should know this.
  • I don't think this is a good look when you're kind of, you're showing how exciting and consequence-less
  • stealing money from your parents is, because they don't show...
  • Like, a kid watching this is gonna, is just gonna assume that what happened to them will happen to him.
  • So, "Oh, they barely got in any trouble, they kind of laughed it off at the end. And the mom came home
  • and was mad for like 30 seconds, and then she seemed confused like she didn't know why they were still filming.
  • She didn't seem that upset. My mom will probably react the same way."
  • And then they get chased at with a knife by their dad
  • All right guys, I know this video has been pretty long already
  • But the family just uploaded the sequel to this vlog so I can't post my video without talking about this first
  • But I'll try to make it quick.
  • So this time, the kids are angry at the mom for grounding them and apparently throwing away their ps4
  • So they put their little heads together and concocted this plan to get their revenge.
  • Basically, they're going to not only steal their mom's credit card, but actually show it in the vlog
  • so all the viewers at home can also use the credit card.
  • I'm just gonna boil this video down to the three great moments that stuck out to me,
  • and I will share those with you now.
  • The first is when the kids are allegedly using the mom's card without the parents knowing.
  • The mom is outside and the dad is in the other room. For a split second while they're making a purchase,
  • you can see the reflection of the dad holding the camera in the TV. And then like 30 seconds later
  • He comes out, dumbfounded, like, "What's going on?"
  • The second great moment is when the parents come in and they realize what the kids are doing,
  • and so they start to lay down the law, you know, but there's a point where the mom, who sounds absolutely
  • flabbergasted at the idea, but she asks, how did you get the ps4?
  • [Mom: Where did you get this? Is this new? Dad: How the heck did you get your Playstation back?]
  • Drew: As if it was like, in a locked safe, that they buried underground, in some remote location.
  • It was at the top of the garbage can, right outside their house.
  • but the best part of this video is at the very end,
  • when the mom starts freaking out because she's getting these rapid charges on her credit card
  • [Mom: I keep getting charges, every second, for $99.99? What is going on?
  • What's going on? What is going on?] [phone beeping in background]
  • Text after text from American Express about all the people using her credit card.
  • She also gets like a frantic call from American Express which she answers and then the video just kind of ends.
  • But hold on, let's rewind for a second here. The conceit of this, what we are supposed to believe as the viewer,
  • is that because earlier in the video the kid showed her card- not in a different video,
  • earlier in this video, that they hadn't posted yet, because he showed the card earlier
  • by the end of the video people have already started using her card.
  • How stupid do you think the people who watch your videos are- you know what? I take that back.
  • And now a word from our sponsor. Has this ever happened to you?
  • Man, this book doesn't make any sound. Leave this scenario in the past by signing up for Audible.

  • Thank you so much to Audible for sponsoring today's video and helping me pay my rent this month

  • Drew: Hi! Landlord: Hi.
  • Drew: I'm back. Landlord: Great. Do you have the money?
  • Drew: I do! In fact, it's right here in this envelope.
  • Oh, no, one of these envelopes has my rent in it and the other is filled with combustive gas
  • that will explode if I so much as touch it. But which is which?
  • I really gotta learn how to read. No time for that now though just... have to... guess.
  • Landlord: Your neighbor's apartment just exploded. Drew: Weird. Well, here you go!
  • Landlord: Thanks. Drew: Bye!

Whatever you do, please don't comment about how I am only 11 inches tall. My height is something I am very self-conscious of, I do not need you guys making it worse by commenting something along the lines of "look at this tiny little man, only 11 inches tall. i hope someone steps on him"
