Subject: This guy is a 2000s YouTube throwback.

This is exactly what people were doing in the late 2000s when YouTube was new. He has some other funny videos like "I Love France."

When Youtube was new I thought it was going to get shut down any minute the way Napster was.  Youtube was SUPPOSED to be exclusively for people posting their own thing (shades of TikTok!). In fact, one year when Youtube was brand new, Time magazine (which was still a ting at the time) had, as it's much vaunted annual "person of the year, "You!" because people were putting themselves on Youtube, as it was designed to be.  But people also IMMEDIATELY started posting music, TV clips, etc WHICH THEY DID NOT OWN. Essentially, doing the same (supposedly illegal) thing as Napster. Hence, I assumed it would get shut down. But it did not. The corporations, the powers-that-be must have immediately seen that they could make money with this new format, and use it to their advantage. And the rest is history.

"Unregistered Hypercam 2" parodies has become one of my favorite sources of nostalgic media. I've seen several channels parodying this genre in fact.

DaymanOurSavior's "EXTREME MEME MUSIC MEGAMASHUP" has a few seconds where the intro to 009 Sound System's "Dreamscape" plays over a clip of Club Penguin with a penguin saying "Here you can play games." It made me sad, because I miss Club Penguin.
