In-game "influencer" ads.

Do they just use the most annoying/obnoxious human being they can find, or are there other criteria?

Valley Flyin popping up in a raid ad has cemented I'll never watch another video of his again.

Most of these ads are so ridiculous....

The one with the one fuck who wears the faggy sunglasses and is always coming to the rescue of his wife or gf or whatever the fuck she is. The one who talks like a 10 year old but is approaching his 30's. I vow to never play that game ever.

Lmao, so I'm not the only one who goes "I will -never- play this f-ing game because of this ad."

A bit unrelated since I don't appear on camera, but a games company recently used my voice-over from my own video in a video ad for their game. Without my permission! I couldn't believe it when I saw it.

That's some scummy practice...

Hey Nimble, nice to see you! Just a couple of days ago I thought that it was weird not seeing your weekly posts so I visited your YT and saw that your last video was 3 months ago, I got a little bit worried.

I hope you and your loved ones are doing great, and that the stress situation gets solved! We love you and your work and will be supporting you no matter how long you need to manage your stuff, keep it up!

Thank you so much, mate. This is some of the weirdest stuff I've ever gone through. I want to work so badly, but whenever I do, my heart starts beating like crazy and I have trouble breathing.

However! It is getting a lot better. I'm able to work 2-3 hours every other day now. So eventually the videos (which is my hobby), will be back too. And I cannot wait!

I really loved reading your message. Made me so happy, I immediately shared it with my wife too <3

Happened to a youtuber called dani as well, they ripped off a clip of him giving a good review of a game and photoshopped their game's logo on it

I am pretty sure you/youtube videos are covered under the DMCA. Not only can you get the ad taken down you could prob go after them for any profit they made from the ad (that would be hard to prove thought). Might want to post that at r/legaladvice

NimbleThor 2

Ye, but I just didn't feel it was worth it to fight it. They eventually stopped using the ad it seems. And I was dealing with stress that has kept me off of work and my hobbies (such as my YouTube channel) for some months now.

If I had the energy, I would've fought it for sure! It's a matter of principle, I'd say. We have to defend our rights :)

100p true. Not worth your stress. Hope your doing better now! Hang in their!

Thanks mate. I am, and I hope to get back to the videos and weekly reddit post some time in August again :)

SSJ4Link 2

Great to hear. What's your channel about?

NimbleThor 1

I play a new mobile game every day and share my impressions of the game with the followers on YouTube as well as through text posts on this sub and r/iosgaming :)

I plan to return in August. If you want to follow along; https://www.youtube.com/c/NimbleThor

Thanks.

Ye, pretty scummy. What they did to me was that they used a video review I had done of the actual game, but they edited the audio so it sounds like I LOVED the game (by editing different parts together).

If it's ok to ask, what game?

NimbleThor 2

Sure, I don't see why not. It was Dragon Raja. Just please don't go harass the devs <3 I am not sure if they were aware or if it was a marketing agency they're working with (I feel like that's likely, but not sure).

Too late mailed them glitter.

The ICC has made it clear that this is considered a war crime.

thatssosad 2

Not going to, just marking the game as a big "avoid"

NeptuneIsDaBoss 3

Wow thats some shitty marketing strategy there

I have question. Do you make report at least to google play? Isnt like this cause a risk for game to get ban in store?
