I’m something of an addict on Reddit. I enjoy the community and find it as a good place to check the pulse of popular culture in North America while living in the Land of The Rising Sun. A frequent observer in the /r/pics subreddit I try to check it everyday as it’s a good place to find article ideas. For the last year now I’ve been noticing something strange … well what I felt was strange, Jurassic Park cars.
I get that the 1993 Jurassic Park release was a huge movie and it ignited the imagination of millions of kids who are now adults. The logo is of course iconic but the cars in the movie? Really? Back To The Future, now that I understand. The DeLorean is not only a collectors car but it was the main plot device in the blockbuster Trilogy.
The Jurassic cars though were just props, not much more than specially painted vehicles. Check out these posts on Reddit:

These are just the ones that have “Jurassic Park” in the title making them easy to find. I’m sure there are endless others. So why so suspicious? Well what is coming up summer of 2015? Why the new Jurassic movie:
I’m thinking, starting a year ago, some viral marketing company had the brilliant idea of making a couple mock ups and just driving them around certain parts of America knowing that people would take pictures of them, post them on social media and create a buzz. Insidious but ingenious.

Huh. Of course. All internet sites are making their money by these not-so-stealth advertisings. If the contents of a certain website are issued by its users alone, the users usually turned out to be these TV/movie/entertainment people. YouTube is making its money by this tactic. .. That’s why I stopped watching YouTube videos made by Youtubers. Especially when the video is made by some “famous” Youtuber, they’re more likely than using Youtube as their bottom rung as their tiny step on to the real TV world.
There’s a huge deceitful business behind the scene, news flash, the Youtubers themselves are not your ordinary next door neighbor. They’ve been preparing for their big debut on Youtube for years and they’ve been building up enough connections with TV people just to go big on Youtube. Only after they’ve prepared enough, they decide to appear on Youtube like they’re fresh, new product.
Only after I found out the dirty secrets of several Youtubers, I began to realize that not many portion (to be honest, it’s none. None is interested in Youtube. I was the free spirit who thought watching Youtube video was one of the ways of passing time) of my real life acquaintances regularly watches Youtube vidoes, let alone making a video of their everyday life then posting it on the internet. Then I began to feel really grateful that none of my real life acquaintances is a Youtuber or who is remotely connected to any one of them. Sorry if you know some Youtubers, or you’re one. I just think it’s a really lazy way of making living and I think it can be a very irresponsible job depends on how you use Youtube.
Nonetheless, because I bumped into these tragic figures that is called Youtubers, I got to know how dirty the business is. If not for those incidents, I may have never known and kept watching it.. scary. So knowledge is power, right? Stay safe, pals.
