PewDiePie released a new video slamming creator conventions and how our society reacts to internet celebrities, while mocking the most recent Con failure, TanaCon. 

YouTuber Tana Mongeau, known for her controversial videos that occasionally include racial slurs, threw TanaCon after being repeatedly slighted by another creator convention – VidCon. Unfortunately for Tana, TanaCon was a disaster and PewDiePie was ready to meme it.

PewDiePie showed angry Twitter posts from attendees of TanaCon, which included fans chanting “refund” and complaining about the lack of food, water and security at the venue. A number of celebrity creators who were promoted as participating in TanaCon were unable to attend, due to a lack of planning from Tana and scheduling issues with the concurrent VidCon.

TanaCon was plagued with long lines and ended up being very different from what was promised. At one point, PewDiePie mockingly reveals the only positive to come from TanaCon – a TanaCondom that was included in every guest bag.

Despite the relentless shots at TanaCon and its creator Tana Mongeau, PewDiePie understands why she threw the event in the first place. He makes a hard pivot around the 9 minute mark of the video, sympathizing with why Tana felt the need to throw her own version of VidCon.

“[VidCon] is not what YouTube is, it’s what they want it to be… they pick who they want to have as featured creators and probably don’t want controversial creators like Tana Mongeau to attend their event. Which leads to her coming to the event, and then fans swarm around her, which leads to safety issues and she gets kicked out. And apparently, this happened year after year.”

PewDiePie explains how the lack of convention planning experience doomed TanaCon, but he hopes Tana takes what she learned and tries again next year. He then switched his sights to VidCon and how celebrities are treated at creator conventions, by showing a clip of Casey Neistat waving to screaming fans.

“This is the reason why I don’t want to go to VidCon, people screaming at you is just obnoxious. There is no reason, no reason, why anyone should treat me more than anyone else. I don’t want it, I find it annoying… I hate this whole concept of fame and worship. Why? Why is that a thing?”

“This whole idea of worship is being promoted through these VidCon events where people just run around like f***in Neanderthals… It’s so stupid.”

YouTube star and beauty guru James Charles may have just teased one of the biggest games of Among Us we’ve seen yet, tagging massively popular personalities like Corpse Husband, Dream, and many more.

InnerSloth’s whodunnit-style game took over the entire internet last year — two years after its initial release — due to its group-based gameplay and hilarious moments that can arise at any time as players attempt to determine the impostor in their midst.

In that timeframe, quite a few content creators also rose to prominence in part because of their hilarious Among Us playthroughs, with the likes of Corpse Husband and more gaining millions of subscribers.

Since then, internet personalities from the “mainstream” have even jumped in on the trend, as seen when TikTok star Addison Rae tried her hand at the game with Dream and Quackity.

Innersloth’s viral video game has become a viral internet sensation two years after its initial release.

Now, makeup mogul James Charles is getting in on the hype, and he’s bringing some of the game’s most popular players along with him for a huge lobby that will undoubtedly score an impressive amount of viewers.

On February 25, James Charles sent out a surprising tweet that tagged some of Among Us’s biggest names: Dream, Corpse Husband, GeorgeNotFound, Valkyrae, Pokimane, Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, TommyInnit, Quackity, and Karl Jacobs, to be exact.

“Y’all ready for tomorrow?” he asked — and while it’s not 100% certain that an Among Us lobby is exactly what he’s got in mind for February 26, it certainly seems to be that way, considering the sheer number of players he tagged who have quite a history with the game.

At the time of writing, Charles’ tweet has certainly amped up the hype, garnering over 32k likes and counting as more and more of the tagged players chime in.

Charles himself has a fairly decent Among Us track record of sorts, having played an “IRL” version of the game with fellow YouTube stars before. That being said, these players could be grouping up for something similar, although considering the current health crisis, a virtual Among Us lobby seems more probable.

There’s no set time for their broadcast just yet, but it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on for those interested in seeing what sort of antics this star-studded squad will get into in just 24 hours’ time.
