Trolling as an art form.

What the hell was going on in this video... Were people watching this guy eat??
I am an old so I have no idea, but it sure seems like it
I did a quick search, AbusivePillow is a popular Twitch streamer, and apparently just streams his life
So we are in voluntary Truman show territory.
Streaming is effectively choosing “professional cyber bully victim” as a job. Well assuming you’re good enough to get paid for it.
I have to wonder if streaming is the modern outlet for desperate under educated people trying to earn a living doing mindless work. A couple decades ago this type might work a union job doing manual labor 8 hours a day and have plenty of money for stupid consumer shit, but no more.
Solro, they're just vapid little shites. That's all.
Streamer has replaced “reality show star” as the great white hope for people who have no discernible talent but feel they’re special enough to be “famous” regardless. Unlike most creative fields there’s no talent measure so people can keep that dream going forever, whereas in other disciplines you need full obliviousness to keep trying.
I ran into one of these guys once. There's a gamestop in the mall near I live that's very close to their corporate offices; as such it's a really big store, full of all kinds of collectable stuff like life size Stormtroopers, that gun from Gears of war, etc etc.
Anyway, I'm in line to check out and this guy walks in wearing a backpack with several wires going to his phone and a clip on mic, basically a giant battery for him to steam his life with. He wanders around the store for a little bit making the biggest deal about everything he sees. "Woah guys! Check this out!!! Remember this?" he screams as loud as he can, putting on various hats with things like the PSX and N64 logo, before finally declaring everyone that donated that day would be entered in a contest to get the n64 hat.
It was seriously the most annoying thing I'd ever seen. I can't fathom why people actually sit down and choose to watch this shit, even with the hopes of catching moments like these.

We need a streamer troll week. There's many good ones out there.
I would really enjoy it, but I sure as hell won't do the legwork in terms of watching streaming vids.
