Admit it, the term “google” gets you amped. Just hearing it sparks something deep within you; an unexplainable urge, a quiet revolution. Then you should be very much able to relate to Marc Rebillet (aka Loop Daddy).

The YouTuber and musician kicked off this year’s Google I/O event with the sort of energy usually reserved for children at a Yo Gabba Gabba live event.

Rebillet was there to demonstrate DJ mode, a recent Google AI tool that will undoubtedly make life worth living. Take a watch and just try not to get excited about your favorite search engine. 

You really have to admire the approach.

Naturally, because it showed energy, many across our infinite cyberspace considered it “cringe.”

However, for every dark, there is a light, and many on the internet have come to Rebillet’s defense, implying that if you found Rebillet’s display cringe-worthy, it just means you’re not familiar with what the guy does. That’s on you, boo boo.

Yeah. It’s never been easier to find out what a public figure’s deal is.

If Rebillet was a Google exec going through “a time,” that’s a different conversation. Instead, Loop Daddy’s just doing his thing. Haters step to the left (or right, just outta my way)! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an unrelenting urge to do a search on my favorite engine (Bing).
