GOMI is Japanese for Garbage meowed
No idea if these people have their own thread anywhere or whatevs but there is something SO John and Sherri about the people who own "Vintage Marquee Lights". I Just found them through this unbelievably YHLesque "viral vid" (here's the link but tl;dr it's a pregnancy announcement set to Britney hits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYQiAxhe2Ok). So they have the "dorky!" and "funny!" videos down, plus they sell their crap in PB teen and some other places, so they also have the rando product lines. Today was the first time I'd heard of them and just kept thinking "YHL" everytime they popped up in my FB feed. Also, this "viral vid" only has like, 600k views, how is that even viral?

I guess to their credit, they had the product line first and then got the following, but still.

Im so f**king sick of viral videos. 

 

House of Marital glue or whatever the hell her name is has been posting a bit more on youtube.

I had never heard of Vintage Marquee Lights before now, so I googled them and immediately several striking resemblances to YHL jumped out at me:

 

3-word brand name

Abbreviating the brand name to 3 letters

Tutorials for DIY projects that require no skill and are “like, duh!” 

Taking random cheap things and framing/gluing/painting/sewing them and calling it “arts and crafts”

Listing “random facts” about themselves (as if we care)

Awkwardly posed, staged family photos

Bragging about themselves and pretending to be humble about it 

Interrupting sentences with goofy parenthetical interjections.

Just had to re-read this thread. I think YHL jumped ship at the right time. It seems like people are becoming disenchanted with blogs (esp DIY). And, Daniel certainly didn't up his game, at all.
