To much YouTuber ass bullshit to make this an interesting conversation. Merlino was trying, but dude didnít seem interested in him trying to be diplomatic in his approach.

I feel like moose goes back and forth about what happened with deathwish and rather it was his fault.

m0ose saying mystery does not pay him for online board sales sounds like a scam.

Is that normal?

This popped up in the old YouTube Algorithmô recently, so I watched it without knowing anything about the content creator and found it mildly entertaining (disclaimer: I was pretty blazed at the time). I think the only thing I enjoyed was the cringeyness of it all. I find shit like that fascinating, in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Also, it's interesting to me to take a look behind the curtain at the lives of former pro's who've fell by the wayside (I'm actually morbid as fuck lol).

Anyway I went down a rabbit hole and watched a video he did along the lines of 'infiltrating the world of pick up artists' which was even more abysmal than this. I'd be surprised if this dude hasn't been knocked out doing these videos.

will not watch this, but will add that expecting to make money off Mystery in 2024 is insane.

Haven't gotten past the first minute yet, but any insight into a successful career in pro skateboarding coming from notoriously irritating and self-awareness lacking Nick Merlino already tells me all i need to know about where this video is going.

edit:
got to the "were you getting pussy on deathwish" question and knew it was time to step away. this was awful.

Probably not normal, but who else would sponsor/pay him at this stage of his life?

He's probably just happy to get free boards.

This is a really great idea, but it needs someone with talent and social skills to pull it off.

Jamie Thomas is a scumbag if he isn't paying a pro for every board that they sell with said pros name on it.

Regardless of Mystery or Moose's relevance.

The disrespect he gave to the worker asking him to leave the store at 12:20 was shocking - what an absolute cunt he is!

Going to someone's place of work and creating a scene for YT content is shitbag behavior.

Mike Sinclair didn't give any industry secret away, and no concrete salary figures from Moose or Merlino. Shredz Shop's analysis is probably the best inside view of how much pros actually make - 90% make next to nothing, 9% make something decent, 1% make a boatload.

I listened to this while at work a couple weeks ago, the only things I got out of it were that:

-Nick Merlino seems like a pretty mature dude these days

-Moose is bitter about having to work a job now

-The youtuber's attempt at comedy is unfunny and he generally seems really fucking annoying to be around. And don't even get me started on dude's haircut

I feel you @Troubadour26 , it's completely uncalled for. Most jobs are stressful enough without adding a brazen cunt to it.

I wondered how such an obnoxious personality has garnered that many subscribers
