    I'm a huge fan of Call of Duty (I own every single one, and BO).

    Well for the start, he should act more exciting, he really acts like he is really tired, like at the start he should say louder "HEY THERE".

    thanks, for your tip. I will pass this through him, and he will do something about it. another thing: he might be a bit shy, because it is his first vid. maybe if you can thumb up the video, he will see that people like the commentary, and that would give him more confidence!

    I just did thumbs up it and favorite, hopefully my subscribers will see it (I have a huge bo video, almost mill views, hopefully this video will get views from the subscribers etc).


    He shouldn't be shy, he should be excited, that's why people will subscribe, remember, quality, not loong documentaries , and fun!



    EDIT: Tell him also to use as much tags as possible, and then copy the tags into the description as well.
    And he should do video responses to other huge bo videos.

    He has very few tags, and he can add much more tags, any kind of tags related to the game

    black ops, mw2 documentary, modern warfare 2, call of duty, call, of, duty, first documentary, documentary, fun documentary, games, gaming, xbox 360, playstation, playstation 3, xbox

    just random tags from the niche.

    Went on pretty well for a first timer i think,

    He would've sounded more exciting if he was playing the game while commenting on it.

    also would love some game sounds in the background, not just commentary.
