    Seen a few posts about this before around here but this must be a bhw inspired method!

    https://www.reddit.com/r/ElsaGate/

    The story has been knocking about for a while now but it seems the publicity is going into overdrive now.

    I imagine it was very good while it lasted. The view counts on these videos are huge!

    This is probably a method in the jnr VIP section :p

    Shit is weird. What I'd like to really know more about is, like... why? Is this really a practical method to make money? Does having the scat-abortion-sex-slave-emergency-surgery content somehow make these Spiderman videos more profitable than, like, regular children's programming?

    #ElsaGate refers to a wave of videos being produced by different channels, containing pop culture characters (typically Western) that are shown doing bizarre and usually violent / sexual acts. The reasoning for the existence of these varies. For example - some believe, controversially, that it is a form of communication used by child pornographers; others believe that it is to appeal to children for maximum ad revenue. Others believe that it started as a project for maximum revenue, and has now derailed into bizarre competition. The majority of the live-action videos are made in Russia and the animations in India.

    There are some really freaky videos on YouTube and Facebook about that. There have also been a few members here who tried capitalising on it a while back. One was pretending to be a woman, but with manly hands and thick arm hair apparently, whilst playing with toys to some paedo music against a pink furry background. The other member was actually dressing up as the characters and doing some weird crap like making out with a hoodrat pretending to be Princess Jasmine.

    At first, I thought it was just a nonce niche, and I'm still convinced this is the case for most of them. However, now I think it's also an issue with emerging adults trying to live out a second childhood, but with sex, drugs, and costumes; in Neverland Ranch.

    YouTube really messed themselves up this year, and it all started due to political correctness and personal agendas. Funny how things backfire sometimes.

    I thought this was all related to the monetised children's videos a while back but people seem a lot more focused on the adult nature of it this time so it does seem different.

    I agree that it seems very noncey, but then after reading about the 4 chan sinks this seems a little too open for that crowd. There are examples of sexual comments on the videos though so it could easily be explained by it being some weird adult fetish. Millions of views are nothing for adult videos so would explain that at least.

    I wonder too if they are making money as I have seen varied reports that the videos are monetised. Either way it's a bit much and I see all sorts of stories with people going a bit crazy doing the Adrian method so God only knows what doing this sort of content must do to a person...

    The colourful thumbnail backgrounds make it seem as if it's intentionally targeted at children, but yeah, it could just be another fetish

    Take this result for example (I edited the original image to show only this result).

    There are people, grown adults (physically, not mentally), who obsessively "ship" these two characters. So it's not that unbelievable that one of these weirdos used SFM or Maya, downloaded a couple of crude character models, and proceeded to make a series of paedo YouTube videos they could wank to later.

    I also went through about 20 of those channels and noted that all of them either use weeaboo terms, Mandarin, Japanese, Cantonese or broken English. For all we know, it could just be a bunch of sexually repressed Asian animators trying to make a buck.
    I'm unsure, but I've seen people put advertising in the videos themselves before. For example, they could have a billboard or a sign in the animation with a URL on it. The characters themselves could mention an alternative channel or website that is monetised. I'm not willing to watch any more of those creepy videos to confirm that this is the case here, though.
