    Hard netting suggestion for next week:

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYmBRsXr995owHHryHYPzFQ

    It's a guy who covers a lot of songs, but swaps the lyrics out for smash mouth. He sometimes gets pretty creative with it.

    Haven't look for a while, but his channel has really blown up over the past year or so, how does this happen?!


    I know its pretty similar to the cat piano but whatever, doing my bit for one of my favourite parts of the weekly schedule...

      Also, is there an official place to do this? I looked for a subreddit but couldn't find one, I am sure this will just get lost in cyberspace somewhere.

    To the fantastic FunHaus crew: 

    I switched from AH to FH because of the editing. Not to say AH is bad, but the flying texts, replays, pauses, any animation similar to the "Omar Tracker" is fucking great. I've loved it. The editing compliments the video. When I learned how many people it took to get one video up to snuff is insane. (around three, for those curious.)

    Thank you for the heads up and the information. I, as a fan, am in total support and look forward to the 2018. 

    PS- Now that Dude Soup is on Tuesday with a new time, I should now be able to actually watch it Live. Exciting for me.


    PPS - I stopped watching the Comments show because it felt rather repetitive. It was a good call to put it on hiatus.

    I would honestly really like it if they just put on old videos for the PIP rather than play games like they have been, it serves the purpose of having something visually stimulating, and I like seeing everybody crack a smile at the old videos.

    In all honesty first reading of this news hit me with an obscure sorrow.  A feeling I would imagine all mothers have seeing their children go off to college.  There is no question that your community loves you (some more than most ;).  The friendship simulator is real, and if you ever feel you haven't accomplished anything, know you've fostered the largest most faithful family of people on the internet.  Most of us have literally grown with you daily for upwards of 3 years (to the point where we can peg your burnout before you do!).  And this past Monday was a reminder that times are a' changin'.  But, a great solace is there knowing things you want to do are coming to face.  As a fellow creative professional, I know exactly what progression means on an individual and collective level.   Vindication is everything.  No apology or excuses are necessary, because those many of us who have grown with you will wholesomely invest in your choices, and I'm excited to see what's next.

    Dear Funhaus,


    Before I get to my actual comment about the changes you mentioned for 2018, I would like to thank you for the endless hours of entertainment that you have provided me for the past 3 years. Life has been quite rough, as it can be/is for everyone, but your videos, podcasts, and even Talking Stalkings have made it just a slight bit more bearable. So, yeah. Thank you. 


    Personally, I'm super excited for the new year and the changes you have "sketchily" spoke of. (I know you can't give too many hints, and I kind of like not knowing but also I don't know how I feel about surprises in general....). I've been following your content religiously for two years now. I got a First Account because I just couldn't get enough of you guys, and I wanted to be able to see the Dude Soup Post Show, full Twits and Crits, and (what I've recently discovered) Esports Ejects. I fell in love with your content, and I really did look forward to every video you released that I could possibly watch. However, because I understand the YouTube machine can be tiring and it can feel like you're doing the same things over and over again, I completely support the need for changes and less videos coming out every week. Honestly, if you wanted to move to a video a day, I'd still be happy, because I believe spending more time building ideas and coming up with bits and such, will make your content, not only better, but even funnier. (Not to say that it isn't funny already, I love it, but almost anything can be funnier). And if it would lighten the load on you guys and your editors, that would make me (personally) feel better. Whatever you guys come up with and release, I will watch and I most likely will love.


    Again thank you for all that you do, and being inspirations to me, and others, I love you guys, and Elyse, (even though she's the only real man there, so it should be Elyse and You guys... ) and I'm super excited, happy, and enthused for what the year will bring! Hopefully one day I can attend a Funhaus Live and potentially meet you all. (Not very likely considering I struggle so much with social anxiety.)


    From Thomas AKA Tombrownman (but you already saw that...)

    For 2018 I really just hope RT can fix their app so it doesn't crash when I press anything or make the website more mobile friendly. I miss out on every first member livestream and I'd rather wait for RT content to hit youtube so I can easily listen to it at work rather than watch it a few days earlier on the site and deal with not being able to lock my screen and killing my battery life. Starting to feel that RT first just isn't worth it for me, though I realize this is specific to how I consume your content. Youtube red works too well to not use.

    I love growth in creators, craftsmanship and content. I appreciate that the community is thought of when creators and funny people such as yourselves decide to evolve what they want to present and do with their time. I genuinely LOVE RoosterTeeth for the amount of these kind of people that I can listen to... Few things have made me want to go to California, FH-Lives is one of them, and to be  honest 100 seems cheap for the experience nice that is even implied. I've paid much more for VIP for less . Heres to an amazing 2018, so excited for AH and FH content this year.

    It's super hard for me to put my own feelings aside about the changes because, like with the analogy you made with Arrested Development, I watch literally everything you guys upload. I don't understand why the comment show isn't watched because I love it personally. It's not easy to distance yourself and remind yourself that the cut backs in quantity allows you to scale up in quality but I know that you have the right idea and only the best and most creative intentions at heart. I look forward to 2018 and all the fantastic content I know you'll produce.

    If you guys are making better stuff, then go with it. And if you want to do 2:30 videos, maybe do a bunch like the old RT shorts (or like the IG shorts you guys would do) and make it First member only content. RT won't flinch at a short video, and won't penalize you for putting it up.

    I say this as unbiased as I can, I'm 31 and have been absorbing net content since I had 56k dial up

    (try to imagine watching DBZ gifs load for 10 minutes to eventually save one as an AIM user icon). I have seen so many "personalities" and spins on being clever and spontaneous and relevant that I can honestly say Funhaus is a quality presence. There's something there, something shiny that comes out when they have the energy and time for solid ideas. Even compared to other RT shows and creators (no offense) FH has an element that isn't cliche, tired, or frustratingly overplayed. 


    I noticed ya'll probably needed more time to polish and warm ideas up when I watched Funhaus shopping network stream. It was so funny, the improv was so simple but so charming. Successful creators need to change to grow and above all be genuine for today's viewers to enjoy. I among others look forward to seeing ya'll grow and change. 


    Thank you for your hard work in 2017, it was great. Cheers to 2018.

      I had so many 45 second videos saved in a folder on my parent's computer of Japanese DBZ episodes from seasons that just refused to come out dubbed at that time.  Glad to know others suffered "56k" (more like 18k) for great anime.

    when you guys are enjoying things, those are the videos that become my absolute favorite. when there's just an additional something, it makes it feel like you guys WANTED to take that extra step and i end up enjoying it that much more. the marc echo video is one of my newly found favorite videos because those little bruce cuts of him break-dancing crack me up every time. of course, the vin diesel GTA video is also a classic because you guys went off on this extravagant bit that brought me to tears and it's not only because the jokes were so funny, but because you guys were cracking up, too.


    i'm so genuinely excited to see what the future holds for funhaus. i've been very lucky to have meet you guys a few times, chat in streams, see live shows, and all of those moments are very special to me. i very rarely comment on videos (definitely never on youtube), but when i do, it's mostly an expression of how much i enjoy SO much of what you all do. thank you for all of the hours of entertainment in every format i've experienced and i can't wait for more <3

    GTA V is one of the greatest games of all time and Funhaus GTA videos are always great but boy am i glad to hear you're scaling back on them, I'm just so sick of looking at a game I've played a ton of on 3 different platforms for 4 fucking years lmfao I get it though, it does always get views.

  • Zekei FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    These changes resonate strongly with me. I figured I'd share a little story:


    I met Lawrence, James and Elyse at the VidCon meet 'n greet last year, and that was certainly the highlight for me (the rest of the convention was.... a bit too young for me). When I went up to shake hands it was a little awkward (especially since there was a long wait, and some people were unfamiliar with Funhaus), but Elyse gave me a hug instead. For some reason, James bent down lower than Elyse to give me a hug, and then Lawrence and I were on the floor doing some kind of sumo hug thing. That was fucking hilarious and fun.


    I know it came off like I wasn't a very big Funhaus fan since I mentioned I had seen Burnie at one of the first PAXes showing off RvB season 2, and only knew of you when you joined RT, but the quality content you put out like Surfers & Skaters and D&D vids are top-notch for me. These days, I could care less about RvB; FunHaus has some of my favorite people and content on the RT site, and on the internet as a whole. I believe it's no coincidence either, since you guys work on and off camera to connect with the audience, and often succeed.


    Thanks for doing what you do, happy new year!

    One of the things that put me off Achievement Hunter (not hating, just opinion) is that they hired a team of editors to take over post-production to give them more time, but they spend it recording more; which I find tips them into the quantity over quality side. I like that while you are hiring more, you're using the extra time you're getting to upscale your content rather than just turn into some sort of video farm.
    As an avid viewer, it's disappointing that there will be less content, but FunhausTV proves that your material has huge rewatch-ability and in the long run I think the long term fans will appreciate the extra effort and bigger videos can pull in more new viewers who then can enjoy the extensive back catalogue.

      Quality over quantity. I hope with more hands and time they can release more fullhaus. I enjoy seeing the edit versions and putting the longer raw version on in the background when I work.
