About a month ago, I started debates about this thing, and ever since then, I've had to keep making new ones, because my opponents are inept. Please debate thoroughly and pose engaging questions. I look forward to our argument. Your round one argument will be the counter argument to the following:

Videos for people is the best Youtube channel I have ever uncovered. It's entertaining. When I see one of his videos, I laugh, I cry, and so on. His videos attract me. I am drawn to them like a moth to a porch light. I don't know why, but I like them. He has a zany sense of humor and a firm grasp of the world around him. He is a hidden genius. I have never seen any videos like his and I don't think there ever will be anything like his. They are completely unique. They are so funny that I can't stop laughing. I don't know who he is, or what he's doing, but I can identify with him.

His videos are unique. They are done using stick figures. The stick figures are badly drawn, and created using MS paint, but their quality isn't what matters. What matters, really, is what they do. They do hilariously funny things. they do romantic stuff, funny stuff. Nothing is too insane for this guy to tackle. Every video seems more bizarre than the last. But, although his videos are weird, they still seem somewhat normal, so the viewer isn't removed from reality. He uses normal language in his writing. There isn't any dialogue, only music. everything is written. His videos are the better than anything else I have ever seen. I am a devoted fan to the way he interprets things. Every video of his resonates with me. Videos for people is a genius. I don't know who he is, and I have no desire to uncover his identity. Knowing his identity isn't necessary to enjoy anything he makes. He's quirky, and I enjoy his videos.

I await your first argument. Good luck!

Okay, so I'm just going to say that you're probably the creator of this channel and you just want subscribers, so I'll subscribe because I'm nice. In reality, I've never seen anything dumber in my life and it makes my head hurt. I watched only 2 of your videos and I physically cannot watch anymore because it's so stupid it makes my head hurt.
It's just a picture of a stick picture doing a pose, or a stick figure saying "Goopy Goopy Style"

Hello. I look forward to an engaging debate. In future rounds, please type a little more than a paragraph. I am not the creator of it, but I wish I was. The guy behind this channel is a quirky genius and I keep waiting to see what he puts out next. It's sad how nobody knows about him, because he's much better than anything else out there. His videos, while slightly bizarre, are still worth watching. I notice how you point out his recent "goopy goopy style" video. I don't see anything wrong with it, it perfectly captures the idiocy of Gangnam Style. You have to understand that it's a parody. Then it makes much more sense. It's designed to be stupid. You can't judge everything by just that one video. he's made over two hundred. It is a bit of a mystery why he would make so many if nobody watches them, but they're all perfectly fine. They're strange, but they're normal at the same time. maybe it's their uniqueness that makes them strange. They're not fast paced, or annoying, like some other things. The stick figures are not animated, because, presumably, the creator understands that something can hold meaning without being appealing. That's the key to understanding his work, it's not meant to be flashy or well made. The art is horrible. But he's asking us to look past the surface quality and find the deeper meaning. His text is fine, quite eloquent, and it makes up for any artistic flaws. The text is what makes the stick figures seem real, and it's what holds everything together. I'll include a few examples of his striking intellect here:

This isn't just random clickbait, this is high quality comedy. These videos, I'm sure, could b something from saturday night live, if they were acted out by people instead of garish stick figures. But our minds turn away from them because we're not accustomed to anything like this. We enjoy seeing real people, and hearing actual voices. But does it really matter? Does the format matter, just so long as the message remains? I think that, if he was suddenly to reveal his face or his voice, then the magic would all be lost. Anonymity is only fun if it's held together. Once the person reveals himself, everything is ruined. I hope that he doesn't switch to real people or real voices. I would turn off his channel for life. I'v grown accustomed to the voiceless stick figures and the lack of talent. I admire the guy for trying to do things even if he doesn't have any expensive cameras or dynamite ideas. His stuff is still great, and I hope it never ends.

Vanoss is OK, but his humor is immature. He's a BIRD PERSON. He's not particularly different from anything else. I like videos for people because it's always something new, and the style is unlike anything else out there. He's unique.

Vanoss is a 3 year old? Really? I'm done. You're too biased to see other peoples' worth.

They're the best at telling people like you that art isn't everything, and intellect is more important than aesthetic quality.

You called them the best. If they are truly the best than they should be the best at everything including art.

I saw Vanoss gaming's stuff. It's made by computers and the guy behind it must b a three year old. Videos for people, on the other hand, renders each drawing in MS paint, which makes it far more creative.

Did you take the time to read my last argument? Don't judge a book by its cover, sir. Art isn't everything. And that haggis thing is hilarious.

I watched the first video, and... they need to work on their art. I could draw better than that! And I've seen much better humor than "letting people know you're scottish". That's really not a joke at all. Just stupid. I think I'm voting Con on this.

There's better, higher quality animations and humor (All which can be found on VanossGaming's channel. Definitely check him and his friends out.), though many of the animations were made by other people.
