Phil Defranco's "Stuff Phil Likes" was a good move.
We have all seen or at least heard of Ray William Johnson, who I strongly disagree with (seen here). My reasoning for not liking Ray Johnson is quite simple. He takes other viral videos and rehashes some lame jokes over top of them, and thats his entire web-based show. The guy gets money and success (#1 most-subscribed on YouTube) because people can see other popular videos on his channel. Take those videos away and Ray’s success would dwindle away.
Phil Defranco’s new channel and web series “Stuff Phil Likes" takes a different approach to popular videos though. Phil develops a series of videos for the day (usually under a minute) comprised within a playlist. And within that playlist are other videos that Phil ‘Likes.’ He simply has the playlist forward you to the URL of the actual video. He does not create the same process Ray William Johnson does (Thank God).
