Reminds me of the "vaporwave album covers" Tumblr troll from '12 or so, who just posted images from some low budget 90s clip art CD with no commentary, and ended up fooling a lot of people into thinking they were real, obscure ZIP file releases that nobody could find any more.
This guy wouldn't have admitted to the hoax when he ran out of stuff to upload, though.
On the other hand, he's trolling Vice, and Vice seem like pretty low hanging fruit. I think trolling Vice would be easier than trolling Deviantart, to be honest.
Trolling Vice is like trolling a bunch of better dressed CWCs
At least they aren't virgins, Solly.
Actually baleen, Christorians believe that CWC lost her virginity to a prostitute named Mia Hamm, back in April 2012.
SolRo, I disagree, because CWC consistently outclasses his trolls, where as Vice can't even outclass Rupert Murdoch.
Vice should do an investigation of a TED talk about Vice. It could be four hours long and called Zeitgeist : Implosion.
Thats pretty good trolling
The thing that sticks out to me most is the horrid nerd delivery, where they just pitch up and down and somehow this makes the thing they said funnier. You can see it at 1:55. It drives me up the fucking wall.
Otherwise, I agree with him about how vapid and tedious Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are. It's not a great insight, but it's also not mentioned enough.
Pretty much any site with an upvote and/or reshare system that determines visibility is a cultural sinkhole.
Fake. He's too tall, he's not fat enough, he's got a girlfriend, and he didn't call out VICE for mistranscribing the phrase "Le Reddit". Also, I checked Instagram, and can find no record of a "Leroy Steven's" murdered-animals page.
The Tom Waits Demo thing might be true, however:
I don't know, look at Sam Hocevar:
He was one of the higher profile trolls out there for a while (part of GNAA).
i actually look a lot like this guy, for whatever its worth
The Tom Waits thing definately shows that he's one of us.

Vice never doesn't suck.
It's "1 or 5" territory.
I miss when Vice was itself a big trolling operation started by a couple Canadian junkies to raise drug money. It was still pretty awful but at least they didn't even other trying to pretend to be anything other than the Canadian/US version of Bizarre.
Post-Murdoch Vice, the "branded content provider," is well on its way to sub-Gawker levels of tabloid shittiness.

Variety is the spice of life, and guys like this are the spice of the internet.
We should all be happy dudes like this exist.
