YouTubers Try To Troll Their Own Wikipedia | WikiMEdia (New Show)


“Anthony has generally been described
as being ‘the hottest’ and most ‘youthful looking’
of the original duo.” – Oh, no!
– (feigned sobbing) – (FBE) So today, we’re gonna
have you take a look at, critique, and maybe even revise
various pages of yours that exist on various Wikis.
– What?! Ooh, that’s interesting. – You’ve seen them.
– We’ve peeked at the fan wikis. – They keep weird records of things. – Yeah, they know things
I don’t remember telling people. – It’s been an age and a half
since I’ve made a page for myself. I can’t– I don’t know. I really only focus on my socials now,
so I’m curious to see what you guys have dug up. – (FBE) So we’re gonna take a look
at a few different pages, starting with the Smosh
official Wikipedia page. – Okay.
– Oooooh! I can’t wait. – They haven’t updated our photo
in a little while. – Wow, but there’s stuff
about Mythical already. This is very thorough.
I very much appreciate whoever took the time to do this. – “As of March 2019–”
I didn’t know this. “–Smosh channel has
over 8 billion video views and over 24 million subscribers,
making it the 38th most subscribed channel on YouTube. – Dude, when I first started working
at Smosh, you were number four on YouTube.
– Whoa. – Whoa! What happened?
– You were– – (overlapping speech) – It’s all you.
– It’s my fault! – Oh, right of the bat,
I’ll tell you what’s wrong. Okay, so it says, you know,
my real name is Tim Chantarangsu, which is true, but then in parentheses,
it says “Thim Chantarangsu” because Thai names traditionally,
when it starts with a T like that, it’s pronounced with a “TH”. My birthday is wrong. I’m actually 10 years younger
than what it says, so that’s false information. – (FBE) You were born in 1996?
– Yeah. Duh! Hello? (laughing) I’ve been on YouTube since
I was five. (laughing) I depicted Kim Jung-Il in an episode
of Epic Rap Battles of History. Someone was like, someone tweeted
me one day and they were like why is there a picture of Kim Jung-Il
on your Wikipedia? Are people being racist?
And I just kinda saw it and was like, yeah, I guess so,
but now I see. – (FBE) So Brandon,
you actually do not have an official Wikipedia page. – I was gonna say, I’ve never
seen one in my life. – (FBE) So we’re going to take a look
at your other Wikis here in a sec, but if someone was to create
a Wikipedia page, what are some things
that you’d want to make sure were included? – The long walks on
the beach I like to take. Not a lot of people know about that. I would like a Wiki about myself
to include my favorite color, which actually is that teal. I worked in a hotel for six years. I would have hope that
made an appearance in there. It’s a big part of my life
that I wasted. I googled myself one time
and it said that I was 5’7″ and whatever [bleep] wrote that,
there is a small little valley reserved for you in hell. – (FBE) Now that you’ve looked
through it a little bit, you’re gonna get a chance
to actually edit it yourself. – Word? Oh, man. I think I should just take out
this little section about how to pronounce my name
because it’s not true. You know, I want to delete
my birthday, but… but, fine, fine, leave it. Did they put that I retired
the name “Traphik” because that was
my rap name for a long time. “In 2017, he retired
his rap alias Traphik. Now raps under the stage name
Timothy DeLaGhetto.” – (FBE) So normally,
you can edit things on Wikipedia if you want to make chances,
however, your page has reached an echelon
where’s it’s semi-protected, meaning only upper-tier
Wikipedia editors can make changes.
– (both) Oh! – So basically verified on Wikipedia. – They need to change the photo
because I haven’t had that hair for, like, four years, so get on that
top-level Wikiers. – (FBE) What do you think
about the fact that your page is actually locked? – Well, I know we’ve
had a Wikipedia page for probably eight years or something
and I’m sure there’s probably a good amount of trolls
that have gone in there to try to mess with it. – Yeah, it makes sense
when you’re in this realm of comedy, you know,
you are gonna have fans that do that stuff. – You have a fan that goes on there
and says, “Uh, Ian Hecox actually has the largest testicles
known to man.” – You wrote that.
– Y-Yeah. You’re not supposed to tell them.
– (laughing) – (FBE) So you actually have
an entire Wiki dedicated to you and your channel, so here is
your page on that Wiki. – There’s a Wiki for me
and my channel? I’m embarrassed.
I’ve never looked at this. – (FBE) So you can
actually edit this as you go, so if anything is wrong
or there’s something that you want to change, even add a photo,
go for it. – We’re seeing this for the first time. I have never– oh! And it’s tan. It’s not the typical white. I’ll do this and this will be
coming the source. I’m just gonna list all my stats. I’m gonna go height… 6’1″, mother[bleep]. Sex… (chuckling) yes. (laughing) I’m just
gonna put “yes please.” Eyes… Nutella brown. My ethnicity, yes, yes, yes. Okay, I’ll put my ethnicity. Um… (different accents) Spanish,
Portuguese, Filipino, and Scottish. No, that was Indian, wasn’t it? That was quite Indian sounding. (chuckling) (changing accent) And Scot– Scottish. (shrilly) Scottish! Hmmm, who knows how they talk. If you guys change this back,
um… I really don’t care if they do, but if you do, you’re
changing it from the source and it doesn’t get
much realer than this. “Brandon Rogers’ channel
was originally called ‘hotbananastud.'” I was. I was 17 years old
when I came up with that name because I only wanted to play
one character and he was a porn star
and his name was Hot Banana Stud and I never did the character
and instead I have this bull[bleep] YouTube handle that’s been
following me around for 13 years. “January 2016, Brandon was invited
to be a reactor in the Fine Brothers series,
YouTubers Re–” Did you guys put that in there? Well, I’m glad that my relationship
with you guys has made my life’s biography only
three paragraphs of the way deep. “He was born, he graduated,
and then he was on this show.” (laughing) I don’t know how many people
contributed to all these pages but thank you because
I am honored and just shocked that this exists. “His favorite color is teal.” AAAH! What did I say?!
My favorite color is… (babbling) “He is openly gay
and officially came out in the Drinking Bros podcast.” I actually I have never come out. I just stopped denying it. I never had a glorious moment. I was just like, yeah, that’s me. All joking aside, I am flabbergasted
by– I had no idea that this existed. I had no idea that this was real. There are 101 branches of this. Oh, [bleep]! This detailed as [bleep]. “Marisol De La Gorgonzola.” She’s a character I only did once
and there’s a page for her about this. 101 pages! Is my universe even that extensive? It’s insane to see the time
and effort that some people have taken to really flesh out
my universe in writing. – (FBE) So this is a page
from a fan-made Wiki all about YouTube and YouTubers. This one, you can
actually go in and edit. – Wikipedia had it very listed out,
like charted and everything, but this is like someone
dedicated a lot of time into this. – “Anthony has generally been
described as being ‘the hottest’ and ‘most youthful’ looking
of the original duo.” – Oh, no! Oh, no!
– (feigned sobbing) – It’s okay, Papa Ian.
– I’m old. – (FBE) I mean, you can change it.
– Oh, that’s true. – Ho-ho-ho!
– That’s actually very true. – Let’s go!
– Let’s go, baby! I’m gonna say,
“…the most Anthony looking.” “Ian’s got yuge testes.” However– – “Courtney Miller is the hottest
of the Smosh cast, has the most defined
and muscular testes.” – Wow, we should become
professional Wikiers. – We’re historians. – Our name is not Smosh.
It’s Smesh. Smesh! I knew it.
– Thank you very much. I think we’ve done some good here. – Yes, this page is now Smosh–
I’m sorry, Smesh-Approved. – (FBE) So here is
your fan-made Wiki account. Normally, you can edit this
but we’ve been filming this episode over the last couple weeks
and when Smosh was here, they made a lot of changes
to their own Wiki. The moderators thought we were
impersonating FBE and vandalizing the page,
so now our IP address is locked out from editing these Wikis. – But you guys are FBE! Right, well, now we’re gonna vandalize
the Timothy DeLaGhetto page. I might want to change this.
it says he’s now one of the cast members
on MTV2’s Wild n’ Out, but we were only on MTV2
for two seasons, and then we moved to the big MTV,
so it just sounds cooler when you’re on main MTV. It says he still does YouTube
along with being in a relationship with his girlfriend who
is now my wife of six months or so, so, I mean, that needs an update. – (FBE) Do you
have the ring to prove it? – I sure do. (laughing) This almost feels
a little time capsule, you know, because the layout
is like the old YouTube. It’s cool, man. It just kinda goes to show you
how dedicated the supporters can be, you know, because
why even do this, right, because it’s kind of like, hey,
this guy supports us, he likes the YouTube world,
he loves the YouTube culture and he’s like I’m gonna do something
just out of love. – (FBE) So Brandon,
you’ve also appeared on another Wiki. – I’ve appeared
on another person’s Wiki? – (FBE) You appear on
the FBE Wiki for YouTubers React. – (laughing) Ooh! I’d recognize that shade
of blue anywhere. I will say the first time
I came onto this show, I don’t remember which episode it was,
but I was nervous as [bleep]. FBE has been just such
a great older brother to me in this whole YouTube process. My involvement with y’all is official
because I’m on the Wiki. Whoever edits this page, please
use this as my new default photo. Get rid of that [bleep]!
Use.. use this. Use that. – (FBE) So now that you’ve
looked at your channel Wiki, we have your individual
fan-made Wiki pages to show you. – Mmm!
– Okay. – (both awwwing) – See, a more updated photo.
The photos get closer and closer. What?! “Ian was rumored to voice Ren
along with Anthony voicing Stimpy in the upcoming Ren and Stimpy movie. The movie was later
rejected by Paramount Pictures. – (both) What?! – Did you know this?
– No. Let me make some edits here. – I want to change this to “ass-matic
because he thicc.” – Yeah! “Apparently, Ian suffers from
a small case of TMJ and–”
– “Too much juice”? – Yes!
– Really?! – That’s what I was gonna say!
– No way! – We are Wiki-linked. – Yeah, we’re Wiki-linked today. – (FBE) So there is also–
– Mine is weird. – Hey! Dude, your biceps
are way bigger now. – They are. – Yeah, let’s show those guns. – (both) Yeah! – “Also known as Court, Court Bourt,
Comill, Firecrotchney, Buttney, and Dancer.” – It’s actually “Prancer.”
– Oh, no! You better change that.
– They need to fix that. – “Dumb Dumb Silly Head.” – Yes, that one, I think
I respond to the quickest. Oh, my gosh. We just added so much
valuable information. They’re gonna appreciate
this so much. Let’s delete my ex. Yeah. – “Boyfriend who shan’t be named
because he don’t deserve this lady.”
– Get you a buddy like this! – (FBE) So you also
have another Wiki page, but it solely focuses on your time
with the show Wild ‘n Out. – Really? What?! – “Timothy DeLaGhetto,
also formally known as Traphik.” Yes, there you go. This is the only page
that has addressed that, that I retired that name. “Best known for his comedy videos.” “From season 5 until season 12.” Yep. Oh, he does have when I announced
that I was gonna be off the show. Oh, wow. Wow, this guy is informed. This is a diehard Wild ‘n Out fan, man. Very cool. A lot of people don’t know this. “He was a featured artist
on the song ‘Pajama Pants’ with Nick Cannon,
along with Migos and Future” Hey, man, if you ever get a chance,
look up “Pajama Pants” by me, Nick Cannon, Migos, and Future. I kill! I have the hardest verse
about pajamas you’ve ever heard in your life. This guy was very informed,
not just about Wild ‘n’ Out, but about my life, too. – (FBE) So, finally, what is it like
having things like this Wiki, knowing that there
are so many fans out there who know this information and are
willing to create pages like this? – I’m sure a lot of people react
to this in different ways. I think this is very–
it’s motivating for me, doing what I do. You know, as creators,
we live in our head 90% of the time, just in our own universe
of what we’re trying to bring to our audience. When you see that you’re in their head
just as much as your work is in yours, it’s so fulfilling because it’s like,
this effort that I’m putting into my videos isn’t going to–
people are absorbing it like a sponge. This is proof that our work
has a profound effect on the people we’re making it for. So thank you so much. This is why we do what we do. That’s why I do what I do. – I think it’s cool that, you know,
there’s people that are as invested in what we do, that they feel
the need to accurately report who we are. – People, when they do fan fiction,
drawings, and this, it’s like there are talented people
who are putting in the work and it’s pretty cool, honestly. – This is beautiful! You know, it’s a beautiful thing. There are people out there
who support me that much and are so tickled by what I do
that they want to go out of their way to not
only create pages like this, but also look up pages like this. You know, it’s nice.
It feels good. – Hi, guys! JC here,
a producer at FBE. Thanks to all the creators
who came to shoot this episode with us.
