    Dear Ethan, i just need to get something of my chest: I dont know, if you understand how much you mean to some people. I've had a really, really horrible year, and one of the few things that brought me happines was YOU (and of course the whole Podcast-crew). I mean that literally: watching the Podcast feels like having friends around and I can forget about my problems (at least for a couple hours). You also encouraged me to get help by talking about your own mental health and about taking Antidepressents. And now this new channel: its simply you and a camera... and I could watch for hours (which I do!!). So basically what I wanted to tell you: You are a born Entertainer and you have a positive impact on the World. Love you Ethan.

      I was in the exact same position as you, and the podcast was one of the only things that genuinely made me happy and forget about my problems. Ethan and the rest of the crew, thank you from the bottom of my heart

      I disagree, I watch H3 every day and personally it makes me miserable. It made me cancel my appointment with my psychologist! Greetings from reverseland.

    Absolutely in love with the implication that if their brother ever genuinely wrote them a suicide note then instead of rushing into action in hopes of stopping him before it's too late, theyd just blankly stare at a camera the entire time because they have bad reading comprehension

      Im imagining a movie where a serial killer has kidnapped Marcus then calls the dobre brothers up to taunt them and leave a clue. But what really happens is they play 20 questions while the brother is in a Saw Trap vlogging about how "dope" it is.

    milkamilla 4 months ago +198

    This is not just insensitive, it’s dangerous. As an adult, not going through ideation, knowing it’s fake, him reading the note is still really upsetting because it reminds me of the lowest mental state I’ve ever been in. I can’t imagine being one of their teenage fans watching this while actively struggling.

    • emily
      emily 3 months ago +1

      exactly! and i don’t know if this is just my thought, but the other brother saying, “you’re acting like you don’t even care.” could honestly give someone who does believe them and is in that mindset the (wrong!) impression that people wouldn’t care that much. which is obviously one of the main factors that lead to un alive if you know anything about anything.

    • Ruthie

      Same. Goes to show how little they’ve experienced in their lives.

    • Elyse Catelyn
      Elyse Catelyn 4 months ago +4

      Right. They can't say the word (un alive) for reasons like this, but a video like this is allowed?

  • Donnie Davis

    There is absolutely no way that a rational person would receive a letter like that from a sibling, then proceed to slowly stroll through their house calling their sibling's name at a casual volume. The fact that they planned, scripted, recorded, edited, and posted this video without thinking about how incredibly devastating this topic is, sickens me.

    I love how all of them have speech impediments. Like how? What are the chances of that? This was one of the most painful viewing experiences of my life. Worse than ISIS beheadings. It is genuinely amazing that they have made a career out of this.

    • Madeline
      Madeline 3 months ago +8

      Their parents are both immigrants. This isn’t true for all kids of immigrants but some of them maintain a speech pattern or accent. And since English is a second language to them, I don’t think their parents could tell that their kids were developing a speech impediment when they were younger. The bad acting and the rest of the empty brained behavior is only on the kids though.

    • Austin Steinaway
      Austin Steinaway 3 months ago +7

      I bet their rich parents never interacted with them when they were children so they are still catching up on developmental milestones.

      Ruthie 3 months ago +24

      Twins often have trouble with speech due to communicating mostly with each other as children. For instance, they might develop a twin language; it’s a cool phenomenon, but it can be detrimental to their speech as they grow.
      Also these particular twins are stupid.

    I’ve written letters like this in my past. Luckily, I was found by family and sent for treatment. The total rage this fills me with, especially during this very chaotic and depressing time being isolated during COVID when suicides are at an all-time high. Thank you, Ethan, for calling this out. Your support of those seeking treatment for their mental health has been one reason why you remain our King. 👏👏👏❤️❤️❤️

    As someone who has lost WAY too many friends to suicide this makes me sick to my stomach. There’s nothing funny about it, it’s not a prank, Ethan you put it perfectly, they are pieces of shit. On a happier note I’m loving these raw Ethan only style videos. H3 as a whole brings me so much joy especially during these wicked stressful & tough times. All the podcasts & videos always make my day. I appreciate everything you do, I know all the foot soldiers do, I hope you know how much joy you & the whole team bring to so many.

    Hi Ethan! I don’t know how many comments you read, but I want to thank you for speaking up about stuff like this, and being SO open about mental health. Since starting college in 2016 I’ve always had an H3 video or podcast on in the background. Whether it be in the car, at night, or while studying. I’m about to graduate with my bachelors, and it’s so crazy to see how far I’ve come, since the podcast started, to where it is today. Us foot soilders have grown individually, and as a community. Thank you for being the friends I needed all this time, and getting me through some really difficult days. Love you and keeping Hila in my prayers for a safe and healthy delivery!

  • Will Maher
    Will Maher 4 months ago +6

    Ethan you deserve to know that you really shape people days, weeks, and years for the better. Life is very uncertain, stressful, and scary for me right now, but your hilarity, open and honest takes, and wholesome vibe with the whole family gets me through. I know so many of your fans have felt the same way since day one. Back in high school you honesty gave me more body positivity when I was undergoing severe body dysmorphia in my angsty days. Seeing you completely own your beauty and your big boi lovely thicness helped light the pathway towards my own confidence. Simple weekly goofs and gaffs really do make the hugest difference for all of us. Watching your podcast and shows are like stepping into the comfiest and most familiar pair of old shoes and unwinding after a long days work. It may not be high art or a TheXvid base with the biggest following or views, but with the most genuine connection and impact. I’ve never seen you guys sell out, fake your online personality, stoop to lower levels other creators have for clout or exposure, and you and Hila have always stayed true to yourself and prioritized laughter, creativity, openness, and happiness. I hope you see all the love people are sending you after being gone for break, and understand how many fans truly missed you as an indelible part of our media consumption and life at this point Thanks for so many years of peace and love, and papa bless the whole FAMILY. FAMILY. FAMILY. FAMILY.

Like I don't want to but it constantly crosses my mind. I'm glad ethan was reacting cause I can't stop laughing. But yea the original video is sick especially knowing they have young viewers.

    The Dobre brothers have what I call “goldfish eyes”. Like, wide eyed, lights in but nobody home, 50 IQ stare.
    Usually I’m referring to my adorable idiot dog when I use that term, but seeing it on a human just ruins it for me. Booooooo
    Also, let’s be honest. The speech impediment isn’t helping them any. You’d think they’d get speech therapy or something with all the money they’ve made.

    Anyways , ethan you’ve been getting me through a really hard time with your videos. I have panic disorder and thanatophobia (extreme fear of death), everyday I feel short of breath - shaky. At a certain point the intrusive thoughts tell me to end it so I have control over my death , when it gets to this point I turn on one of your videos and it distracts me from the issue.
    I’m on new anxiety meds / antidepressants and the only reason I considered it was hearing about your experience with them.
    Thank you man

    I LOVE this channel. It's like watching youtube with a best friend that understands the internet the same way you do, lol. Not some normy shit who knows a little bit about the internet/youtube but isnt really interested. Love this content so much. I didn't think i'd laugh as much as i do, which is why I am extremely careful when I eat or drink something when watching a video because its so unexpected I have spit/choked drinking something more than once.
    Ethan I fucking love you so much LOL i've been here since the very beginning and you & hila's changes, growing your family and your company, ugh its so wholesome and I'm just so proud and happy for you guys!!!!! I remember when you spoke about wanting to have a baby and going into that ... room ... and how gross it was. Hila's turned into such an iconic, positive, self confident queen that we all love so much too.
    Never stop making these, with just you LOL. They're so great to watch stupid shit on the internet with someone who gets it.

    I’ve attempted probably at least ten times since I was 12, and constantly think about it on a daily basis. I just turned 30 today and was going to do it last night so I’d be unalive in my twenties rather than thirties. Thank you Ethan for standing up for what’s right.

      They won’t. They’re fan base is little kids who will defend every thing they do and still give them money. They uploaded this cause they know that. Even if they get backlash from adults on TheXvid it doesn’t matter. It’s still attention and they’re getting paid regardless.

    As someone who have tried to take my own life and who lost loved ones to that tragedy - this makes my blood boil. I have no words to express how much hate and disgusting I feel for these people, it’s not something to prank with, even worse share on TheXvid as entertainment. Honestly, these types of videos should be banned all together.
    This doesn’t bring anything else than misery and making fun of something very tragic.

    I lost a good friend to suicide. I'm trying to think about what drives a person to use it as a prank for clicks and views. They're lucky to have their friends. This really isn't something to joke about. The fact that my friend isn't here, but people like this are just gets me so angry.

    Great.. now this type of content definitely won’t make kids think it’s okay to “prank” their families with “unalive” notes.
    If the Dobre brothers don’t think this shit is harmful they need to take a huge fuckin step back and remember how impressionable their audience is. This stuff is never okay to joke about with an audience that’s as young as theirs.

      This is what happens when young people known for “pranking” are given too much money, every time without fail, they will eventually take it too far. It’s not only their fault, it’s this whole weird economy that enables them to get to this point

    When Ethan's reactions meets with dumb pranks I can't stop laughing. It's like the secret formula to get the best content on TheXvid. I love this channel but I don't expect to laugh a lot at these videos considering it's usually lower energy Ethan and all but this was hilarious for me. Even when this prank on it's own is not funny at all but it just needed someone to highlight how dumb they actually are.

    My sister once attempted suicide, and I couldn't stay calm or sit still. Instead I was screaming and begging for her to be okay. It's so triggering watching him act like it's a fucking murder mystery book.
    And yes, my sister is okay and healing.

    I cannot stop thinking about how absolutely saddening it is that on platforms, where you can age restrict content, we have to make up code words for other words we aren't allowed to say like we're on Club Penguin safe chat and have to find ways to still talk to our friends without getting banned. It's very weird to me, because we still communicate the words they want us to not say, yet in a way that forces it into a less serious connotation. It's very weird to me that TheXvid would prefer we say dumb code words for serious topics, that we all know what they mean, like "unalived note", which literally turns something that should be serious into a less serious, joking vibe. The magnitude of what we're talking about is lost from having to use silly code words. I feel like TheXvid isn't accomplishing what they think they are accomplishing, unless their goal with making people speak in code was to make a JOKE out of serious topics and make it harder to communicate REAL LIFE ISSUES that we all know about and face. It feels embarrassing to be an adult, on a channel for adults, and be reminded of when I played Club Penguin and had to speak in code to talk to my friends, except this time it directly downplays serious adult issues as if they don't exist just because youtube said so.
    Keep in mind, all the big TV and news channels on youtube get to still speak freely about horrific topics without facing bans or demonetization. So they realize the importance of being able to use the words they seem to have banned, but only if you're Jimmy Fallon or KTLA news. Which is a whole other comment about how disgusting it is that TheXvid started as like an Anti-tv, totally into bolstering their creators while they worked so hard to make TheXvid as respected as that they have done that and solidified TheXvids space as a legitimate method to broadcast, it's literally like they would rather be TV than TheXvid. They left their creators behind to try and nab a buck off late night tv hosts. It's just disgusting how double standard and hypocritical TheXvid is. Honestly, Susan should be ashamed of herself when hearing people say "unalive" "sewerslide" "cornography" when talking about serious issues. They totally abandoned legitimizing actual creators just to make us speak in code.
