YouTube right now! “Thank You Hater!”
Here’s the ultimate anthem for YouTube trolls.
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
Finally, Internet trolls are getting the thanks they so rightfully deserve.
In “Thank You Hater!,” a very British music video uploaded Friday, singer Isabel Fay offers gratitude to the people who say very mean things to her in a very British way. The four-minute clip features some British guest stars, but they’re British, so we don’t recognize them.
A cutely dressed Fay dances around in a coffee shop and sarcastically sings about the comments that permeate her YouTube videos. No, she’s not mad about your misogynistic, sexist, homophobic, and occasionally racists comments. She’s embracing them and even thanks you, “beautiful stranger.” It’s even more endearing when you hear her British accent.
She also acknowledges that the cancer you wished upon her is a good thing. “But I know that it’s a metaphor. You hope that I will grow, Just like the tumour you hoped would kill me,” she sings. Also, she says “wanker.” So British!
It’s racked up 19,000 views and garnered 700 comments, and some of them were nice! A commenter wrote, “best counter troll I’ve ever see,” while another trolled back, calling her the C-word.
Well played, Internet. Well played.
