Could someone give the backstory on this guy?
This is pretty much it, to be honest. He's a sweary-mouthed, arrogant, vaguely racist, vaguely Australian pig. He likes luxury watches, Thai prostitutes, and complaining about his (now ex) wife. Scratch that, he LOVES luxury watches, Thai prostitutes, and bitching about his wife - in fact, these three things together make up roughly 90% of his content, so if you like any of those things, his channel is the one for you! He's also been using one of my ink drawings in his intros, which is rather nice of him!
Beyond that, he's a mystery. Archie loves to cultivate this materialistic, high-class lifestyle persona, but where he's getting his money from, or even if he HAS money at all, is unclear. He's hinted at various family issues in the past (they don't like his career as "a Youtube entertainer", which, combined with his frequent rants about Google ad-money, seems to indicate that he's unemployed and fairly broke) and some of his Thai prostitute stories come off as a little unbelievable... although he HAS filmed videos with Thai prostitutes in the past (rather doughy, oldish-looking ones), so evidently there is at least some truth to his claims. I've always suspected that he was some sort of middle-income Patek Phillipe salesman, who fell into a series of rather nasty misfortunes, got depressed, and decided to start a bizarre yuppie-satire comedy channel as a way of staving off/ augmenting a growing alcohol problem. But I could be wrong.
One really nice thing about ol' Archie is that he's got GREAT talent for trolling watch-snobs.
"I think he's as classless as they come...and having him as a spokesperson for anything would be the last thing any brand needs! " says a man who owns a ,000 Patek Phillipe wristwatch.
That's actually low end for a Patek Phillipe watch.
A while back I realised I lived not too far from Archie, and contacted him via email to arrange a meeting. It's one of the "services" he offers - you can pay him to speak at a function, or pay him to hang out with you, etc.
What can I say, I saw his videos here on PoeTV, recognised his broad Australian accent, and then also recognised some familiar buildings in one of his videos. So I became intrigued and decided to use this rare opportunity.
I dutifully paid 5AUD into his PayPal account to "ensure that Archie would respond promptly" my email.
After a few emails and phone calls back and forth, eventually he decided that I wasn't a threat to him and invited me to his home. I went maybe three times total before I lost interest.
I'm not going to start talking shit about the guy or publicly divulge aspects of his personal life online, but I will say that it's hard to tell where the character "Archie" ends and where "Paul" begins.
(A simple Google search will reveal his real name)
NB. I didn't watch this video, I've seen enough and met the guy to guess the main gist of it.
