Still no PointlessFrog :( ... although this title is very fitting too.

I'm just so over Alfie at this point, I can hardly even hate watch anymore.

When Zoe finally realises how much better she can do than Alfie, I wonder what will happen to Nala. One week at Zoe's, one week at Alfie's? If Alfie can go a week without dry humping her that is.

Nah, Alfie will probably get Nala since it seems he likes to take care of her more than Zoe. I just saw a tweet from Zoe though that she has started chasing and attempting to eat flies and think it's cute, but if she actually did, it's kinda dirty with all the germs that flies carry. Not good training and I'll feel horrible if Nala ever goes to the vet ill.

Alfie should take Nala and use that poor puppy to be the main attraction of his vlogs, and Zoe should take the house live by herself, take care of the guinea pigs, and start dating a decent man with normal job so it can make her work ethics better.

Zalfie is their cash cow though. I can't see either of them letting go of it for a while yet.

I think Zoe would be fine without Zalfie. Unlike Alfie she is actually known outside of the whole Zalfie thing. He needs her.

Zoe could do so so so much better than him. He's actually disgusting. And annoying.

Hilarious shade thrown by Marcus towards the end of his 'moving on' video! From about 7:50 onwards!

"It is 7 minutes to 9 in the morning and I've got my personal trainer in 37 minutes, that's why I'm awake so early"

All said without a hint of sarcasm or jokeyness...yep so early Alfie. :roll:

Don't think that was aimed at Alfie really, there are loads of youtubers who do the exciting thing I cant tell you about rubbish including himself.

He honestly has no clue about the real world, I almost feel bad for him. Then I remember that he's a self important fool that steals merchandise ideas from his young fans, and I feel fine again.

I really wish he would put 'AD' in the title of his videos instead of in the thumbnail, i don't know what the law is about displaying the word but it is so misleading imo. I clicked his latest vlog and within 2 minutes i thought 'definatly an ad' so i looked in the description box and there it was. I tend not to click on videos that are ads because i've learnt that most youtubers will promote any old shit for quick easy money. I don't know if anyone else feels this way or just me but it really annoys me.

Same ^. I started watching last night's vlog and thought, hang on... this is sponsored. Why doesn't it state it in the title? Then I checked the thumbnail and its there in TINY letters in the top left corner :roll:

I don't understand what's the point to try to hide the fact the video is an add. Sadly Youtubers can still play quite free when it comes to advertising. Like said before, written the ad in the thumbnail as small possible. I have as well noticed that they hide the add info under the "read more" on the info box. It would nice if they wrote who is paying the add before watching the video.

Money rules the world.

And now they have TakeAwayTuesdays™ since they have such a busy life, and need to treat themselves and their relationship...
English is not my first language.

People still have very mixed feelings about YouTubers placing ads in their videos, and some even outright refuse to click on a video if they know it's an ad. Less views = less money for our favourite Chumpy Overlord. The very fact that they try to hide it suggests they know it's shady and do not want people to know it's an ad. If people don't know it's an advert, they will think the YouTuber just really likes that product and is genuinely recommending it because it is good; therefore, more people will buy the product. If companies see and realise this, the sponsors will just keep on rolling in for Alfie. Unfortunately, the minions are probably so excited to see a new video pop up that they will rush to click on it without even glancing at the thumbnail. It is all about manipulation. Sickening really.

I just watched an Alfie vlog where he said there aren't buses near where he and Zoe live and I thought it was funny since I take buses from near where they live to the city centre all the time (we live on the same street) and it's like 5 minutes. Walking from that area to central Brighton is about a half hour. Walking MOST PLACES in Brighton/Hove would take less than a half hour (unless you're talking Kemptown to deep Hove, obvz). I only recently started taking buses occasionally because usually I don't need to because Brighton is so walkable!

(Longtime reader/hater, first time poster, lovely to meet all of you.)

On the topic of no self-awareness, I somehow stumbled upon this old video, and it gets verrrrrry unintentionally hilarious starting at around 8:00. Yes Alfie, recently you've been quite hard-working. Oh wait...

the fact he always says, "I have to meet my trainer in... 47 minutes" or "I have a meeting in... 23 minutes" makes me think he's one of those people who act like the extra 3 minutes helps. he's perpetually late because he's like, "I had three extra minutes and thought I could vlog that fast..." but ends up vlogging about a stupid package or his stupid dog for 20+ minutes while the trainer waits outside. people like him drive me fucking NUTS. I'm always early for meetings/work/whatever and I hate waiting for people -- especially waiting outside their house for them to stop taking forever. like, bitch, I'm using my gas to pick your ass up, you better be outside by the curb.

Any ideas what this thing is he's going to announce in a week that will 'help' his channel and youtube? I think its possibly an editor who will edit & upload for him. I actually don't have a problem with that tbh because loads of youtubers have a team of people behind them.

For the editor however that would be one sucky job. You would basically be editing 90% of the time the same vlog over and over.
