So, I’ve been light on work since the pandemic started and am looking for new revenue streams. I’ve heard all about these people who are blowing up on YouTube over their music reaction videos, where they tape themselves listening to a song for the first time. These people are getting hundreds of thousands of hits and making a killing off of ad revenue. I was a little late to the game on the whole music reaction video thing, but I really do think they’ve hit a nerve with the reaction videos. I’ve been exploring some new directions in reaction videos, hoping to start the next big trend. Here’s some transcripts from some of my best work, if you like it, check out the videos or subscribe to my channel!
A Total Veggiehead Reacts to Skirt Steak: First Bite
Normally I’m a total veggiehead, so I’m not a big meat guy, however I’ve been getting a lot of requests in the comments about different kinds of meat. I guess there are a lot of meat fans out there. I keep seeing the name “beef” pop up, particularly “skirt steak”, so I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve got a skirt steak queued up here. Now, I’m going to take a few bites, really chew it and swallow, so that I really can take it in, then I’ll jump back in to comment about it.
—— 5 minutes of eating ——
Now, like I said, I’m not a meat guy, but I can totally get behind this. I mean, it’s got so much flavor, it’s got a satisfying chewiness, I really see why so many of you requested I eat this. There’s some red stuff that’s coming out when I cut it, I’m not sure what that is, maybe you can let me know in the comments, but I’m going to get back into the eating and just enjoy it.
——15 more minutes of eating ——
Well, all I can say is wow! That was fantastic! Like I said, I’ve never eaten “skirt steak” before, but I could tell after the first bite why so many people are eating it. Like I said, I’ve heard a lot of requests for “beef” before, so let me know the next type of “beef” you’d like me to eat and I’ll post another reaction video. Catch you next time!
A Deadbeat Reacts to Going to Work (Wait Until the Surprise Ending!)
So, I’ve never really had a solid job, but people in the comments have been requesting that I try you know, “going to work” for a day. I’m here to listen to you the viewers, thank you for watching and subscribing. So yeah, like I said, I’ve gotten some requests to try an office job for my next reaction video, so I went to a temp agency and got myself a job for the day doing data entry. Like I said, this is my first time going to work, but I’ve heard a lot about it, a lot of you guys are big fans, so here goes. I’m just gonna experience the work for a little and will check back in with some initial thoughts after that.
—— Goes into an office and works for 4 hours ——
So far, I’m mixed on this. I mean, I know some of you are into this, and I dig the free coffee, however I’m not really digging the whole being told what to do by some people I don’t know. But yeah, I’m told I need to be back to finish out the day in 20 minutes, so I’m gonna go use the bathroom and you can then check out my reaction to the rest of the day. Like I said, I’m not a job guy, this is the first time I’m checking out “work” and I’m trying to keep an open mind, so I’ll just dig in to the rest of the day and let you know my thoughts at the end.
—— Works another 4 hours ——
Well, I guess I can see what some people might like about it, but that whole “work” thing isn’t for me. I mean there were some good parts, like the going to the bathroom, having coffee, eating lunch and leaving at the end, but those were just the parts where I wasn’t really working. I know the comments requested all different kinds of work, so maybe this data entry thing wasn’t the one for me. Make some suggestions in the comments for the next kind of “work” I should try.

Total Germaphobe Tries Licking Subway Pole For the First Time (ew GROSS!)
All of my subscribers, thank you for tuning in every week, you know that I’m a big time germaphobe, never really got that into germs. I am more of a clean kind of guy, a “neathead” you might say. Well, I’ve been getting a lot of requests that I do a video with germs, you know, check out germs and see how I like them. As you know, this is my first time trying out germs, so it’s new to me, but I’m open minded and excited to see what it’s all about. A lot of you guys are big germ fans, had a lot of great things to say in the comments. There’s been a lot of suggestions for different germ to try out. A lot of you have been saying that I should “lick a subway pole”, so I’m gonna be licking a subway pole for the first time here. I’m going to just take it in here, lick it for a while and see how it is. I may stop it and tell some notes to you guys if something interesting comes up, otherwise, I’ll just lick the pole from the beginning to the end and let you know what I think when it’s done.
—— Licks the entire length of the subway pole ——
You know, going in I wasn’t sure what to expect. I heard a lot about germs, and like I said, a lot of you guys had great things to say about them. I was expecting it to taste “germier”, but I didn’t really get that. I liked how cold the pole was, that felt good on my tongue. Honestly, it was better than I thought it would be. A subway pole wasn’t my favorite thing to lick, like I won’t be licking subway poles all the time, but I could see myself licking a subway pole again. I have to end this video now though because I have a sudden urgent need to use the bathroom.
Classical Pianist First Time Root Canal Reaction (YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS)
So, as you know from subscribing to my channel and watching my other videos, I am a classical pianist, trained at Julliard. I’ve taken a lot of requests from you guys, and you’ve pointed me to some really interesting music that I never would have found on my own, and you are all the best. Keep leaving suggestions in the comments. I’ve been getting a lot of great suggestions, but one that keeps coming up in the comments is to try getting a “root canal”. Now I have great teeth, totally health, no cavities, so I’ve never needed or considered a root canal. I’m always looking for suggestions and requests for new things to try listening to, and I keep reading “root canal”, so I’m going to go ahead and try a root canal.
—— Sits in a dentist’s chair and root canal starts ——
Ok, let me stop it here for a second. I’m noticing some things I’ve never noticed before. There’s a lot of dissonance, some interesting percussion. I’m getting a John Cage kind of vibe. Not really what I was expecting when I heard about “root canal”. The sharp stabbing at the beginning was unpleasant, but after that I haven’t been feeling anything else too bad. As a classical pianist, I’m used to music that is less physical and more audio based, so this “root canal” thing is really a new experience. I’m open to it, though, I like it. I’m a classical pianist, not an oral surgeon, but I can tell that this guy’s got some real chops. It’s always amazing to just hear someone who is so good at what they do. So I’m going to just sit back, let him do his thing and take in the rest of this “root canal”.
—— Receives the rest of the root canal ——
Wow, not what I was expecting at all. Really interesting stuff, though. The part at the end about the aftercare and recovery; that was a real left turn. As someone who never had gotten a “root canal” before I didn’t see that coming. As a classical pianist, I really noticed the way he moved his fingers as he drilled into the crown of the tooth and removed the pulp. He was nimble, and had a good touch, the dynamics were there. I can see why of all the dental procedures, everyone said I should check out a “root canal”.
It looks like I need to be back in two weeks for the second part of this “root canal”, so keep checking in. Like this video, subscribe to see more and leave me some ideas for what to react to next in the comments below!
