      @yygderghv "in different words". First of all I said I prefer his old content, which still has him giving away money BUT also has acual funny jokes and fun challenges instead of him just copying the entirety of squid game.

    Its interesting in a way that, I've been out of touch with Preston's channel for years
    He seems to have changed his audience completely, I didn't even know if he was still uploading or not. I reminisce the old days but good on him, happy that he found what works. Same for Unspeakable. I haven't heard his name in years! Happy for him tol
