1. Jenna Marbles: for those of you who don’t know who Jenna Marbles is, she’s pretty hilarious and I loved watching her Youtube videos my junior and senior year of high school, while her videos may seem pointless, I could always count on them for a good laugh and somehow found they them relatable to my life in some way, shape, or form. She was just a normal person who started posting videos to Youtube in 2010 and then she became very well known. So naturally I wanted to post one of her videos as one of my favorites on Youtube.
2. DIY: Usually when I go to Youtube for DIY it has something to do with home decorations, I’m not quite sure why, but that’s just generally what I like to do if I’m gonna get crafty. The video I found was DIY pillows (by SorryGirls), I love pillows, again not sure why but I have pillows for every season for my room and couches etc. I think they’re a really fun way to brighten up a space. So here it is:
3. Problematic Video: Flirting tips from Cosmo. Although I read read cosmo regularly, because, well, I’m a girly girl for the most part, I’ve always found they’re datings “tips” and “how to make a guy fall for you” articles ridiculous and usually I get a good laugh from them. I like this video because it shows the comedic, yet the realistic outcomes of what happens when women try these “tips and tricks”. The articles talk about women doing “simple, easy, and natural” flirty things that make them more “appealing and sexy” when in reality, we usually end up looking awkward and uncomfortable, very rarely do we look “effortless”. This video is pretty funny and brings to life the reality of what can happen when you actually try the flirting moves suggested by Cosmo’s writers.
Like I mentioned above although the video is very funny and the girls participating in the video are having a good time videoing it, some women do rely on this tips to help them and when the results don’t go as planned they can be very discouraged and upset. I think this video is a great way to show the realities of dating and flirting with the opposite sex, you have to prepared for anything to happen and kinda just go with it. Everything won’t be planned out like the magazine says.
