My guess is before people were interested in Chris as an internet oddity/laughingstock but now he’s just a well known internet personality and younger people are willing to try anything to gain viewers.What's with the influx of YouTubers in recent years?
People often try to score interviews with Chris, fantasy enablers get him to appear in livestreams, people who live locally to him like Copitz and Xleepy befriend him to get him to appear in their videos, Jack Z paid Chris $1,200 to grease Chris's palm hoping he would appear on his YouTube channel, etc. And there are also a lot of people who recap or read off the CWCki or Chris's Twitter updates, and Pewdiepie made a video about him.
There were some interviews and stuff from 2010-2015, but the amount of CWCxploitation videos has drastically increased lately. What set that into motion?
Seems to be ironic timing, too, a lot of commentators around here express boredom with Chris's shenanigans in the past few years yet those videos and channels keep popping up.
This is especially ever since PewDiePie made a video about Chris (Which admittedly is a few years back now), PewDiePie being about as mainstream as internet culture goes.
