Shaytards Begin

March 11, 2011

Title of video: “SHAYTARDS BEGIN!
Uploader: ShayTards
Date posted: October 2nd 2008
Context: YouTube regular ShayCarl created this special channel to post daily update videos on his weight loss.
Subject: Shay talks directly the the viewers about how he wants to use this channel just to “throw whatever up” and his goal to lose weight.
Reception: Almost all of the comments when this was posted are in support of Shay and how people plan to keep watching.
My analysis why it’s relevant to YouTube history: Shay never expected that these daily vlogs would include his entire growing family, nor did anyone expect the channel to continue with daily update for 2 whole years! ShayTards has redefined “reality” tv/entertainment. His videos literally are his family’s home videos. If that’s not reality I don’t know what is.
