some of the footage later on in the doc that i saw made it look like (may have been edited that way) he was just continuing to milk the sales of DVDs after he didnt fulfill orders originally,
of course i dont know personally, but he has always seemed like a bit of a weird guy so it would make sense for him to be super nervous, or get in over his head, and just be like "OK fuck this im running from my problems"
if its true he kept advertising DVDs he knew were never going to sell i think its either what voltage said, some sort of fraud, or just deciding to scam his fanbase of the claymations while not being a career scammer,
more importantly, what seems to really matter is this dude does seem to have a problem with alcohol and the excerpts of him on stream drinking and seeming pretty weird disgruntled and angry dont reflect that hes in a great place... especially when generally you should try to respect your fans... ESPECIALLY if your demographic is probably pretty young, some of the shit he was saying seemed pretty fucked up, at the same time it may have been some form of lashing out of his own self hatred for his position as a person and the similarities he saw in others who were his fans... idk though, maybe his actually comedy style is just supposed to be really grating? or those were one off instances carefully edited into a video to make him look as bad as possible?
hopefully this dude has stopped drinking by now and maybe will have some way to compensate people someday, or do something to clear his name?
i definitely agree that releasing a documentary style video like 7 years later isnt how youre gonna get compensated, although they seemed to be painting it as he consciously pushed the dates back and postponed the pre order release possibly knowing of paypals refund policy?
i have no guage of who this guy actually is, is another aspect as well. never talked to this dude, never any real evidence anything ive seen of him online is his actual personality, the parasocial aspect makes it murky as well. Is this "supposed" to be his angle, its supposed to be more funny for him to glide with fulfillment errors and have some weird stream sessions?
anyways as a way to note this post, i didnt watch the whole doc, i skipped in a bit to see the parts the description was talking about then watched through there a bit, some of this struck me as pretty strange, although as an adult I can now see that... what would you expect based off of the content this dude has consistently made? He never seemed super normal in the first place, so it probably would be unfair to chalk it up to him being a scammer, in my mind I was super shocked to see this when looking him up though
