One of Australia’s most popular YouTube collectives has decided to call it a day as The Click Crew officially announced that production has come to a halt on all group videos.

Established in 2018, Click brought together some of the biggest YouTube and Twitch personalities in the Oceanic region. After almost two years of collaboration across 69 main-channel videos, members of the hugely popular group have opted to go their own way.

From unofficial leader Elliot ‘Muselk’ Watkins, to the likes of Fortnite stars Kathleen ‘Loserfruit’ Belsten and Lannon ‘Lazarbeam’ Eacott, the collective announced on July 1 that filming had stopped on joint videos.

“Together we have made the very hard decision to stop filming Click videos for the foreseeable future,” a statement on the official Click Crew Twitter account read.

 

The post addressed how due to the ongoing global situation, they’ve all been distanced from one another. “It was pretty tricky for us to film videos without being able to see each other.” As a result, Click members all wanted to “spend time working on [their] own content” instead.

Many of the content creators replied with simple love heart emojis, Eacott responded to backlash from one fan in particular. “Half of the people that were in videos live in a different state,” he explained. Making it next to impossible to have everyone in the same room to record something new for the channel.

Having last uploaded on April 25, the Click account was inactive for two months before this statement cleared things up. “We want to apologize for not saying anything sooner, but really wanted to make sure this was the right decision for us and you guys before making the final call.”

With 2.8 million subscribers, each video on the channel dashed well into the millions without fail. Six of which even cracked 10 million views, a testament to just how popular the Australian personalities are.

The group welcomed a number of new members over the years, though 2020 will mark the end for now.

It may be the end of an era,  though the door could be open for a reunion down the line. “This is goodbye from us for now,” the post concluded. Perhaps when the global crisis begins to ease, the group could return for collaborative content once again.

That’s not to say you won’t still see many of the personalities pairing up. While The Click Crew may have come to a close, its creators are still just as active.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
