    LYE 90: Everything That's Wrong With YouTube Rewind 2018

    It's that time of year again


    The mince pies are out in force, the weather is pretty miserable (applicable in the UK) and YouTube has released the second most disliked video on their platform.


    That's right YouTube Rewind is back and this year it has been chastised for many reasons that we will be exploring within this weeks instalment of #LYE. We dissect the video and ponder what they could change about the concept next year to ensure they receive more likes than dislikes. Or at the very least not make it into the top 10 most disliked videos on the platform. That would be a start wouldn't it?


    It's also the last episode in this series so to those of you who enjoy listening to us ramble and even enjoy reading these (if there are any of you?!) descriptions from the bottom of our hearts we thank you and look forward to returning in the new year with some shiny new concepts but we promise we will continue to Lower Your Expectations.


    Thanks guys and have a brilliant festive period.

    LYE 89: The End Of YouTube? (Article 13)

    LYE 89: The End Of YouTube? (Article 13)

    Is this the end of YouTube? That's the question we're exploring in this weeks episode of Lower Your Expectations. Following the passing of Article 13 YouTube could be held liable for all content uploaded within the EU and as a result this could see the platform banning any video that uses any third party content. That includes many of your favourites including Pewdiepie, Philip De Franco and Red Letter Media.


    But why is this happening? When will it happen? Who's to blame? Is it a mistake?


    We attempt to answer all of these questions (but please forgive us if we fail on this noble quest)

    LYE 87: Defy Media & The Split Of Jake Paul And Erika Costell

    LYE 87: Defy Media & The Split Of Jake Paul And Erika Costell

    Jerika is no more. That's right the bedrock that featured heavily in Shane Dawsons "The Mind Of Jake Paul Series" has been dislodged which raises a whole host of questions about the validity of the truths uncovered in the series. We also discuss the impact a break up can have on the former couples business affairs. In other internet related news we unravel the mess that Defy Media have accumulated and what their closure means for the YouTubers who were represented by them.

    Marzia Bisognin recently informed her 7.5 million YouTube subscribers that this video would be her last.
