There are countless YouTubers out there striving to reach internet stardom, yet they all try to be unique by copying everyone else. True individuality is hard to find now amongst the attention seekers. Some, however, do offer their insight and are quite entertaining to watch.
Ever wanted to know the science behind everyday things, but needed it slowed down a bit? VSauce is the perfect place to answer those existential questions, while still being able to follow along. The show’s host Michael Stevens keeps the audience engaged with demonstrations and easily understood analogies.

“I don’t really watch him, but I’ve heard of him. It’s all like informational,” Kendra Evans ‘18 said.
Thoughty2 is along the same lines of VSauce. But, the channel is more interactive. The host of the show requests topics or questions to discuss, looks up whatever he thinks is interesting, then presents his finds. He is interested in everything and anything. Thoughty2 is a random page with random and fun facts explored deeply. The name is a play off the number 42 which, according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, is supposed to be the answer to everything.
Chris Stuckmann is a movie reviewer and a huge self proclaimed nerd. He is a legitimate film reviewer, so he often reviews movies before they are actually released.

Lastly, Cinema/Music Video/Brand Sins point out the flaws in everything ranging from Donald Trump and Kayne West to Frozen and The Martian.
