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. This debate is open for anyone who is willing to debate me on this. 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!

Oh, don't worry, sir. I won't forfeit you. I'm fully prepared to win this debate. I look forward to everything and I hope that you, as my opponent, see some of his videos, and decide for yourself what their quality is, and then come back here and make some nice, legible arguments. So, here we go, with my second argument.

Videos for people isn't just funny. He's also very relevant. The way he covers current topics is astounding. He represents humanity in his recent "Voyager Picture Parody" using only 13 or so roughly drawn images, and he seems to know what's happening every week, commenting on the current news and stuff like that. His parodies are genius. He really knows how to make fun of something. In one video, he makes fun of a sitcom, which I assume may be Modern Family. Recently, he brilliantly chopped up those annoying Geico ads.

He hates internet culture a lot, too. I can see from his "Botchtojo" series that he despises those stupid top 10 lists. Then, there's his "Creepypasta world" series, where he pokes fun at the ridiculousness of modern online urban legends. And sometimes, occasionally, he makes fun of horrible internet trends, like the Harlem Shake, the cinnamon thing, and so on. My personal favorite, though, when he makes fun of the internet, is one in which a goofy scientist talks about how important science is to the world, and then says that nobody is interested in it, so he just takes out a hydraulic press and crushes things. That is some real talent.

One of the most bizarre things about his stuff, though, is the medium he uses. It distinguishes his videos from anyone else's. He uses an online slideshow thing, one can see from his descriptions, which would normally be used to showcase vacation photos or stuff like that. But he doesn't use it in that way, he uses it to present comprehensible storylines and little stick figures that he draws on MS paint. There is no animation of any kind, except for the slides going from one to the next. The stick figures remain completely motionless, but they still seem alive. This is a bizarre way to make cartoons, he could just use some kind of animation thing, and yet the lack of motion gives a kind of intellectual quality to all of it. It makes everything less hyper and more calm.

Videos for people is a great Youtube channel. I await your next argument.

Ok, I'll try and humor you here. Hunter Avalone, from what I can gather, is a conservative guy who talks about his opinions and stuff. That's fine, but we're not talking about him, here. We could, but I suggest we stick to the topic at hand and discuss what we were talking about. I feel that they can't really be compared. Hunter and Videos are so different that they have almost nothing in common. One is a goofy cartoon, one talks about real world issues. They have nothing in similar. You've got to compare Videos to another cartoon thing, at the very least. He does bring up politics every now and then, but that's not at the core of his wisdom. Do you only support Hunter because you agree with his opinions? That's OK, but you've got to judge things by their quality too. If something is funny, I'm more likely to agree with it. I agree with Videos for people a lot. He presents his perspective with lots of evidence. Anyway, quit with Hunter, let's talk about the whole point of this debate, which is whether or not Videos is a good Youtube channel. I ask, please, that for the following rounds, you use more than one sentence. It's mildly annoying and I was hoping to do something exciting, like maybe a heated argument or something. You've got to post more than one sentence. Use evidence and stuff. Go ahead, I'm waiting, take it nice and easy. I hope that, in the next round, you can use your staggering wit to convey your contempt for this thing we're talking about. Go ahead, sir. I'm all set.

he has 5 suscribers, his videos are poorly animated, its all around a bad youtube channel

Oh, ha ha. Post three sentences instead of one. I see what you did there. It's a good loophole. In the next round, I strongly encourage you to post entire paragraphs. You don't have a chance of winning if you appear illiterate. Still, here are my counter arguments:

His amount of subscribers doesn't have anything to do with how good a channel he is. Popularity is not a valid measure of quality. One musician can suck and have millions of fans, and some musicians can be great and have no fans. he only has 5 subscribers because nobody pays any attention to him. Once more people see his stuff, they'll start subscribing. His channel is simply so underrated that you can't expect it to have too many subscribers. Thus, this argument is invalid.

His Videos, in my opinion, are not meant to be animated. he's not trying to animate them, he's trying to create a new art form altogether. His videos are like comic strips, there are only motionless panels, no motion whatsoever. This may be annoying for people who like cartoons but, in my opinion, it sets his stuff apart from other stuff and doesn't diminish the quality a bit. The art might be bad, but look at Youtubers like Pamtri who purposefully pump out low quality CGI videos. Same thing here, it's done on purpose. The low quality is a kind of ruse for the ACTUAL quality of his videos, which is contained in the WORDS. So, this argument is invalid.

I await your next argument. Please do something exciting.

Well, his content really isn't for me. You may like it, but i really don't like his content. There ARE however very good channels with animation, i DARE YOU to try watching 5 videos from a YouTuber called "Pamtri" he makes animations that are VERY funny. I would like to say i am sorry for my previous arguments, i was being rude.

i just watched one of his videos, there is no voice, it has bad animation. It really isn't funny. I will await your argument

In my last argument, I did NOT insult Pamtri. I simply compared him to Videos For people, because both of them use low quality animation to add appeal to their stuff. Pamtri's stuff is actually quite good and entertaining, but I claim that Videos for people is actually better. Pamtri uses violence and low quality humor. Videos for people, on the other hand, does not resort to shock value, and uses light, satirical humor. In addition, Pamtri's work is far removed from reality, and gives a surreal feeling, but Videos for people always seems to be rooted in reality. they're both fine, of course, but in different ways, and if I had to choose, I would pick Videos for people.

Now, as to what you said- "There is no voice"- I ask you: does there really NEED to be a voice? Videos for people seems to function fine without it. The strange lack of dialogue also increases the mystery and anonymity of the whole thing. If he did use his real voice, then the mystery would be broken, and everything would be ruined. that's one of the fun things about his channel. Also, for heaven's sake, there doesn't need to be any voice. Humans can communicate just as well in written words as they can with spoken words.

And, finally, you said that it isn't funny. That's dead wrong. This channel and nearly everything on it is as funny as hell. It's a unique type of humor, and you may take some time to adjust to it, but once it settles in, you can get used to it. Look, for instance, at his recent video on the Stanford prison experiment. We can see from this video that the creator has a high intellect, to know about this look into the duality of man. The characters are funny. They talk, they dance around, and the way he does facial expressions is really something zany. Everything about this channel is funny. The music always fits well with the situation given. He is just one huge hilarity after the next. He is very funny.

Please, voters, vote for me. I've made longer, better arguments, and my opponent refuses to write over 100 words. I hope that you make the right choice. Consider well, and good luck. Tell WHY you voted as you did, please.

As for you, sir, I await your final argument.

First off, i would recommend that EVERYONE BEFORE YOU VOTE watch his videos. "videos for people" has background music that doesnt fit the situation, it has no voice(or robot voice, like pamtri) it isnt funny, this isnt even a real argument.

I strongly agree, sir. They should watch his videos before voting, and COME TO THEIR OWN CONCLUSIONS WITHOUT ANYONE INFLUENCING THEM.

I agree, it can be hard to find sometimes, because of the vague name. The channel is so unknown, it's like a ghost town or something.

Now, debate me or don't. I just want to get this thing on the road. I'm ready to debate. If you think you could present some nice, valid arguments, it'd be great.
