The most pointless video ever

And people still love it.

Well, not everyone likes it, but that wasn't the goal. I wanted to experiment. I already know there's an audience for dollifying stuff, but is there an audience for mermifying stuff?

Apparently, there is. And that makes me happy :)

A few firsts I did in the making of this video:

  • paint a fish
  • talk into the microphone without a script and sound somewhat coherent
  • tried to talk more about the mermify process and tell a little story about every character

So now finally, I can declare the Year of the Mermaids has officially begun on the BrickoMotion channel! YouTube Gods, please let it be a successful one!

Btw The last SW video got monetized after the manual review. Hurray! That makes the manual review correct in 2 out of 3 cases. At least for me. Yay!

SW: A New Dollify

new videoJasna Bronić MiklinComment

It happened again.

I'm exhausted. Again I make a fairly popular dollify video and several hours after it's uploaded YouTube puts it on the naughty list.

I don't like that. I don't like that one bit.

Maybe this time the manual review comes back saying it is advertiser friendly, maybe it doesn't. Who knows?

Either way, I'm left with a feeling of "I can't count on AdSense revenue". And that's my only revenue.

I guess I have to speed up the LEGO Ideas and the Patreon project.

This advertiser unfriendliness has got me on a rant I didn't want to have. Let's get back to the planned content of this post.

Things I did for the first time for or in this video:

  • lengthen a minidoll torso with green stuff
  • modify a minidoll head piece with green stuff
  • paint fur
  • paint 3 more or less identical legs and torso pieces
  • tease a related video (mermaids) and then decide if I should do it via the poll in the community tab

That is a lot of firsts. And all of that work so it can get demonetized.

I'm too cranky and sad to write this post now. Maybe I revisit it when I cool off.
