I would say it's an algorithm related thing. This is just speculation (as is fucking anything youtube algorithmic related, honestly) but a lot of people on my radar have been trending towards more long form style content. Perhaps the bots are rewarding that style and the grumps are cashing in. But I am at best a layman so take it with a pinch of salt.This is kind of unrelated, but Christ, are all of their videos 40+ minutes now? GG was tolerable when it was 10-15 minute bite-sized chunk episodes you could put in the background while you made breakfast or something, but who the fuck is watching 40+ minutes of autistic screeching and nothing happening?
They saw that oney, the man with a fraction of the sub count yet comparable views, does his videos anywhere between 20-40 minutes at a time and reaps success from it. What with this sonic stuff in these past couple of posts it could be an easy enough correlation to make.
OR (my preferred choice)
Arin is aware that prolonged exposure to his autism causes severe damage to people's brains and he wants to contribute to the further degradation of society.
More than likely it's a money move. I mean c'mon man, it's Arin fucking Hanson here.
