I get dozens of interview requests, or am asked to participate in some way, for people’s YouTube channels. Im not opposed to doing them for friends like Scott, Rick Harrison, or Leonhart. I gladly do them to help their causes.
Keep in mind, I never promote personal stuff. Only stuff that benefits my friends.
Here’s my dilemma. Another friend has wanted me to participate. My only concern is his channel can be, at times, a little racy. Pokémon is pure. Battle, kill…wholesome stuff lol.
Now don’t get me wrong. He is really a great guy. Creative, hard worker, and totally fun to hang with. For all those reasons, he’s very popular with a lot of followers.
I’m gonna do it but only cause of the connection. I guess I’m only looking for absolution;)
I got a couple pm’s about who my friend is. His name is Anthony Padilla. He started a really popular channel with a friend but is now doing his own thing. I’m hoping he can become a bigger success now and at the same time promote Pokémon which he’s actually done in the past.
Honestly Gary you could make so much content just interviewing with different collectors and telling stories, but I’d love to see some of your PSA returns, bulk sets and other sealed products that you collected. You could even make a video about your strategy for flattening cards with the large glass slabs. Not every video needs to be long. Sometimes a 5 minute video is just as good or fun as a 20 minute one.
Edit: Whatever you do just make sure to point it out to us so we can find it;)
I might do something when we are in closer proximity. Pokémon is trendy now as larger channels are doing content. Some people know already but I talked to Fazebanks awhile back. We talked on the phone and the guy genuinely likes collecting. Nice to see how widespread the hobby is now.
