Last month I made a Jake Paul video. The series on our channel is usually titled “Inside the Mind of (Subject)”, and perhaps coincidentally, the @shane Dawson eight-part @Jake Paul documentary would have shared the same title as our video. But once Shane teased his plans on Twitter, we made a last minute change in our title to avoid any confusion, and defer to the larger creator.
The viewership Shane is pulling on “Inside the Mind of Jake Paul” is amazing, and I think his last two documentaries on Tana Mongeau and Jeffree Star were a good thing for YouTube. Those videos were easy to consume, and I shared them with friends.
This time around however, as I watch Shane Dawson's Jake Paul series unfold, I'm finding it frustrating. Like many people, I'm seeing Shane get things wrong about Jake and his family, and go down some wild goosechases intended to create a “spooky” feeling about Jake's motivations and mental health. But I'm still optimistic he'll straighten it all out by the end, and reveal things we didn't already know. Especially since Shane is reshooting scenes based on feedback, and editing as he goes,
A lot of people who care about YouTube, or who have concerns about the videos children watch DON'T want to see Jake Paul get a redemption story arc, and Shane has acknowledged that. If Shane's series ends on a high point, or the misinformation keeps piling up, it might be necessary to put some other projects aside and make another video on this cursed topic. I haven't said this publicly yet, but the script for our video was 23 pages long, and only 7 of those pages made it on screen. We had many additional chapters that were cut for time and for pacing, or reserved in case Jake decided to reply. I'd honestly prefer to move on.
Many people asked, “Did Shane reach out to you about showing clips from your video?” No he didn't, but before “The Mind of Jake Paul” series debuted, I did reach out to Shane via DM, and sent him some files and bullet points from our own research on the Paul family that I think would be useful to him. But aside from an off-handed remark about “NerdCity can do it but I can't?” in a Twitter argument he was having, there hasn't been any communication from his end. I think Shane has completely different priorities for his series, and I understand he has his hands full now with what he's been calling “this crazy roller-coaster” of hype.
In case you didn't get a notification when our video came out, or if you know someone who might be interested in more information about Jake Paul, here's the video we made:
