The Right Opinion: What Did This Drama Channel Have To Hide? - Spill | TRO
Who is the man behind this channel, who am I? Well, to be honest, it’s not really of great importance, and I’d prefer to keep my identity mostly private, although at this point it’s a bit late for that. Big shoutout to the news websites who published my name.
However, it doesn’t have much significance in the general discussion, because I am just one person presenting what they know and what they think, and honestly, the people behind the respective TH-vision channels aren’t that important in the grand scheme of things, and it’s so bizarre that today’s situation seems more important to many creators than it would appear on the surface.
So let’s go back over to the tea community. The tea community has a lot of players in its complex game, firstly the large beauty creators who produce content for millions of individuals. This content is fairly unproblematic on principle, but as observed, their demeanour is quite melodramatic, and there’s a reason why melodramatic has the word “drama” in it. Along with drama came people with opinions on that drama, who would have thought, you might even say that many of these channels provided commentary.
Now, typically the people who provided commentary were individuals with some level of proficiency in reporting of this drama. Their style may not exactly be for everyone but they have an audience, and it seems that many of them are legitimately invested in the outcome of this drama. Many of these creators are quite tabloid, and some are as dramatic as the genre they cover, and honestly, that’s alright, as long as people don’t come to expect anything more from the channels. That’s what commentary is, opinion based ideas, and if you disagree with that person, that’s okay too.
However, at the same time, some people may want a more in depth perspective on TH-vision drama, a lot of commentators aren’t the most involved in that, and that’s fine, not everyone has the time to sit down for a 30 minute summary of something that really isn’t the most consequential in their life. Nonetheless, there is a demand, and that demand exists in every genre, so it was natural, within the beauty community, eventually a channel would emerge with more focus on creating long form content that focuses on the delivery and the depth of information rather than merely the gut reaction to it.
The channel that appeared to answer these prayers was a creator by the name of Spill, like the fairly simplistic name, their content never assumes too much about the subjects that they’re covering, and focuses more on the delivery of this information in a journalistic and well cited way, with the conclusions often being well informed and providing some sort of additional insight. They started their channel on the 5th of September 2018, and in the following year have accumulated a pretty healthy 930,000 subscribers. They often received praise from many audiences and creators for representing information in an unbiased and thorough fashion. Spill also appeared to be creating this more deeply rooted nexus, which is our word of the day by the way. This was represented by three additional channels, Brew, Grill, and On The Hill, which all have their own dynamic.They were good at what they did, however, perhaps a little too good.

  • I personally tend to watch channels if I can connect to and relate to the creator and Rolan's personality was the last straw. Thinking buying and reselling is cool (what's the appeal, draining a few extra dollars out of someone who doesn't know how to buy from the source)? Feeling bad because you're middle class and not rich? Trying to get people to feel bad for me by playing sad sappy tunes in what's supposed to be an informative video? Can't relate. And no sob stories are distracting enough from the discrepancy between "it was a passion project AND THEN we decided to incorporate" and "it was a passion project WITHIN a corporation".

  • 23:35 - Former webcam chat room website Stickam did the exact same thing. THEY SOLD OUT. . Firstly, only individuals were profiled on the front page . Individual Content Creators were also always the trending content -- ON THE FRONT PAGE . Until Stickam sold out -- and only profiled and promoted and TRENDED celebrities and talk shows, etc -- and guess where the site is now? . EXACTLY -- DELETED - BANKRUPT - OFF LINE -- FOREVER . TH-vision BETTER not make that same mistake. Because that is exactly where they're headed

  • I like them. I don’t care about where they come from. I don’t watch all their stuff. But I like them. They include actual research and studies and academic opinions that explains the behaviour of some people on YT. We don’t need to incorporate in Australia. We have ABN (Australian Business Numbers) that we can register for. If you get big enough, you can then incorporate. I have an ABN for my reseller business. It’s only me, but even if I got an employee, I still wouldn’t need to incorporate.

  • As someone who really likes spill and a lot of the videos that they produce I do like the way that this guy points out a lot of things I didn't personally know about the origins of spills channel, and did in fact subscribe to this channel after this video. I like a lot of the points brought up, I also liked how he presented it in a way that didn't seem like he wanted to shamelessly bash spill for past decisions, he seemed to genuinely just want to put out the information about certain facts that they left out that do change their story quite a bit. I will probably still be watching spill though because I don't feel like this properly will Cloud their opinions on other people's channels and situations but it did make me look at them with a more critical eye so thank you! Look forward to watching more!

  • I don't care if they are a corporation. They produce high quality and detailed videos. The other channels make short videos that don't provide a lot of detail and are mainly just their opinion. Spill is unbiased and overall an amazing channel, I'm still gonna watch them because of that, even if they aren't independent.

  • Some people have said "I don't care if they lied, their content is still good". Sure the content may be good, but the fact that they lied and tried to silence those who had doubts just shows you that they have little integrity or respect for the people who are watching their videos and raising their subscriber count. If we keep shrugging our shoulders to these things, more and more of these companies/corporations will think they can violate our trust for views and money.

  • Small question: Given you're British, what's the deal with *_Behavior_* ? I'm Australian, our language (& love of dark humour, with a 'u' BTW) is very, very similar. So you know it's *_Behaviour_* with a 'u' but you used the US spelling. This was clearly deliberate. Is it because you think it would challenge (Australian word here) 'Jingoistic' ie chauvinistic/isolationist Americans? If so, isn't that out of character for a twat (again, challenging to them) with too much free time in a Top Hat? It's an interesting, obviously motivated move.

  • To be honest, I quite liked spill. Probably the only drama channel I followed. I got busy and stopped watching only to find out about this. I wouldn't have minded terribly their origin as a company (there ARE still passionate people in companies after all and their content is good) but it is more than quite a bit shady how they concealed their origin and when confronted, actively LIED about it. The wannabe emotional rags to riches story. Not to mention the whole weird 'we're barely surviving off of this' narrative that brings the whole company under scrutiny...what's real and what's cleverly constructed with a corporate mindset? The lack of transparency is disturbing..and how many companies in the future will use the same disguise tactics but with even less morality?....THAT's the big issue.

  • It's worth pointing out just cause you have a corporation does not inherently mean you have investors. Most of this seems benign to me based on some self employment dealings i've had... Granted that one channel is pretty damn cringe, even normal people come up with bad shit like that lol. Happens any time you work out a successful formula. I think you majorly over estimate what a corporation can be. You can have a corporation and have and make zero money. Much of the issues you mention just sounds like the kind of things an indie group would fail at. Even if they work with what was initially an external company.

  • Spill definitely wanted us to believe we were watching and supporting an individual or a small group of individuals creators working together, seemingly as a way of gaining our trust and loyalty. Who trusts faceless corporations after all? When we watch channels like Petty Paige or similar and we feel a connection to that voice or face on a much more personal level, we can almost feel like we know them and I think that is just a human response, they knew this and chose to present themselves in the same way for the same benefits. A corporation veiling themselves as an individual/small group left us feeling manipulated and deceived especially when they intentionally withheld information and framed their story in a way to hold onto that image. The reason we love TH-vision is because its suppose to be about individuals and their passions and this feels like a betrayal in a way. Just me?

  • Honestly, your channel seems to be their idea done right.....well okay, there's some clear differences. You focus more on TH-visionrs and Influencers while they focus a LOT on musicians and hollywood celebrities which honestly pushes them more into TMZ territory than i'd like. Second off, you don't do MLA styled citations or really any links on this video. But mostly, you do clearly have personal opinions and biases. But the reason I compare them to you is that you seem to at least try to analyze the whole picture when you do these videos while many drama channels are hyper-focused on one or two things. But honestly, the personal opinions and bias are what gives your channel a lot more flavor and probably longevity. Spill is a great example of what happens when you remove almost all of that from a drama channel: it becomes fucking boring. Sure, she does have a bit of personality so it's not entirely a corporate husk, but it's still not too far from something like BehindTheMeme: Drama edition.

  • For me Spill became shitty the moment i saw they made profit off of a video about a kpop idol i love who passed away in October. They monetized the video and put SO many ads to it. If it was a video to raise awareness about depression and mental health..... It wouldn't have been mometized so hungrily. With words censored so it wouldn't be demonetized. The video being a month after the artist passed away, and with the research being made off of simple kpop drama/news sites like soompi.
