True & Honest Fan

Telling people you have a Netflix show is very different than telling people you have a Youtube channel, and Nyk strikes me as someone who cares more about prestige than money. More importantly it provides entry into the entertainment industry and a chance to leave the autism-fueled world of internet politics behind altogether.How is he desperate? He's making his millions on Patreon, he's doing just fine on his own. He doesn't need Netflix. In fact, I heard that Google is pushing channels like Nyk because they want to use these channels to compete with Netflix and get the 25+/35+ segment - that transitioned out of Youtube once they grew up and got bored/too busy for vlogging - to get active on Youtube again. Apparently the 25-35 year olds prefer to watch Netflix over Youtube, so Nyk is pushed as a product that Google can use to compete with Netflix. Plus I don't think Nyk could work for anyone other than himself and his Google overlords.
