When Did LEGO Become Stupid?
LEGOS ARE STUPID AND SO ARE YOU
Ok butt hurt.
First, try not being hostile to a guy who wasn't trying to be inflammatory. Second, you look a huge asshole by posting this. Third, I don't have to explain anything to you. I still think that nearly everyone is missing the point of this video. Lastly, it's a comedy show. Maybe you should stop being such an uptight person and have a little fun? Just a suggestion.
Way to hit another low by featuring a video no one cares about, ScrewAttack.
Oh, I get the point; I still think it's bullshit, though. I find LEGOs of today as entertaining as when I was a kid, and while I respect this guy's opinion and all, his critiques could have had actual criticism instead of just "THEY'RE SO STUPID!!!!!". I'm pretty sure his point is that LEGO is all franchise merchandising these days and the crafters take too much liberty with the source material. But really, here's what they're doing: putting their imagination INTO the merchandise! At least, that's my opinion. And that whole thing about LEGO Star Wars is just him not being able to accept different ways of seeing the original films.
But you know, maybe the point is to make random repeats of stuff for no reason, and a host who has arguments so bad they shouldn't even be considered as such. Is that "the point"? I mean, I guess NOBODY else gets it except for you and "SILVERMANIA." So tell us, what is "the point" that you seem to grasp and all us peons don't, huh?
I didn't really care for this video either. But then I got drawn into his gamer girl/booth babe/attention whore video -cough-, and I actually really liked it. Watched a few other videos from him and those were good as well. Subscribed on youtube!
How is it stupid? Lego decided to align itself with popular brand names that have universal appeal in order to make more money. Star Wars Lego's are a great example of this marketing. Not only do the position themselves for kids, but there are a lot of adults who collect Star Wars anything so they appeal to those adults as well. Ranting and bitching about something you don't like is fine, but the entire video is you complaining without giving any real reason on why you're doing so. Lego's for the most part always had a theme. Branding has just give them another avenue to explore. Besides that, you can still purchase Lego's that are not of a specific brand. Hell, Ninjago isn't a specific brand, it's a made up Lego theme.
Good video Justin. It's really too bad that nobody seems to get the point.
This guy, he just gets it.
Oh God.... I thought these kind of ''Nostalgic >> Everything new'' people was gone...
By the comments, title and literally the first 3 seconds of the video, I can already tell this is a waste of my time.
I cannot find one single valid good point of critique in your video. I don't even like Lego, but even I can see you're trying to hard with this subject. You do have some good equipment to make videos with, though. I hope you up your game and I may subscribe.
I find it ironic that he's complaining about LEGO going brand crazy when he has a Star Trek Ninja Turtle in the background.......uhh ya.... I don't blame lego for doing this, as many knockoff lego copies were doing this for a while now, and LEGO was missing out as kids would beg for crap knockoff versions of legos because it had some brand/videogame/movie tied to it. Now they just joined the club and 1up'ed all the competition
"Themed" yes, "Branded" no. They had pirates and space and things like that but it wasn't Harry Potter ©, Pirates of the Caribbean ©, DC Super Heroes © etc.
LEGOs were pretty much always themed, in my childhood it was pirates, spaceshuttles and other stuff... you just wanna rant :P
I remember when I just took a a Ninja set and combined with s Star Wars and Power Rangers set. There was probably some Vikings and Batman thrown in the mix. XD
Hurricane Sandy is my bitch.
I'm not going to waste my breath. You don't get it.
HA HA HA, I'M FAT. <3
I actually made that point... but, we left it out because it got to boring... I was going to say that LEGO opened the door to mix and match sets... if you are INTO Harry Potter you might get Potter playset... that might get you into other sets, like Indiana Jones or Star Wars... now you like THOSE nerdy universes... like, if LEGO was a Gateway drug to nerdy stuff... BUT, as I said, it got boring, so, we made this.
1. It is funny. 2. It's called editing. 3. They suck ass. Did it as a joke. 4. Thank you. 5. YOLO. 6. True. 7. The whole point of this show is to be the ANTI-show. Imitation satire. The episode HAD a point, but it got boring, so we made this... our goal in making this show isn't to get fans or subscribers, it's to have fun and rant about shit.
