Your Best Moment on the Internet?

Ah, I find this topic so interesting! Not just to see people’s responses, but also because, well, this is super duper relevant to us, since most of our lives are on the internet, so you see just about all of our moments.

It’s also odd because the question itself has a slight connotation of non-importance at the same time. Kind of like that I’m Kind of a Big Deal on the Internet” joke, people can’t really take you fully seriously if your claim to importance is social media. And I get it. I don’t fully take it seriously myself, either. Someone asked us what it feels like to be a celebrity, and we’re always like “hey, we’re not celebrities. Brad Pitt’s a celebrity. We talk about food and toys on the internet.”

But that’s not to say that we’re not amazed with all that’s come our way since we started making videos on YouTube. We’ve met tons of amazing people, and have been able to travel around the world, and – more importantly – we’ve been able to pursue a dream. We can be with each other all of the time, the two of us, and since we’re a mushy married couple, this is super important for us. It’s not something we could do in any other career.

And that’s also not to say that we’re not happy with some of the things we’ve accomplished. We helped raise $50,000 for Liberty in North Korea, and we got to see the faces of the people that were saved with that money. And we were also able to give $10,000 to Korean Animal Shelters. And we’ve only been able to do these two things because of what we do on the internet. We’d never have been able to help if we hadn’t spent so much time online, and that’s something we’ll never forget, either.

Also, when we do our events in other countries and we get to meet you, we do our best to talk with as many of you as we can. The stories you’ve told us about how our videos have helped you, in some way shape or form, is something we’re incredibly touched by, and I can’t talk about it much here without getting all weepy and shit so I’m gonna stop. But you know who you are, those of you who we’ve talked to…

So it’s a mixed bag, I guess. I’m incredibly honoured that we can do what we do, and that we were able to help in some small way, but it’s never something I’ll talk about arrogantly. We understand that we’re small fry in the YouTube world, and in the internet world as a whole. We’re thrilled to be along for the ride, and touched that we can meet so many awesome people along the way. Thank you all for being a part of this.

Hot damn why does this sound like a goodbye speech? I’m only trying to talk about proudest moments on the internet. I didn’t want it to become so serious! I also made a bunch of fart jokes that I really like. I was particularly fond of comparing Spudgy pooping to squeezing toothpaste in this week’s Korean Drama video. Ah. That’s it for now. I’ll see myself out of this post. Thank you all again for being so awesome!

  1. Finding true love – oh, my Meemers Oppa – my nine lives will never be the same…

  2. I successfully photoshopped my friend to hold an unimpressed cat. He was originally holding a Nikon camera.

  3. I deleted my Facebook if that counts as an achievement.

  4. Oh my God, it’s Lisa! I see you stopped by the cafe during your trip. Love your blog, Raine’s Dichotomy! <3 As for me, I don't do much on the internet but I guess one of my greatest achievements would be finding EatYourKimchi and being a Nasty. (So cheesy.)

    • It’s me! Thanks for loving my blog! It’s nice to meet other Nasties! That’s the best part of the internet! :) Oh yeah, thanks for including me and my international homies in the video! (MISS YOU, GIRLS!)

  5. My favorite Internet moment was having my tweet read by Kevin when you made an appearance on After School Club.

  6. One of my best moments on the internet is getting more than 200 likes on an Instagram picture. And it’s all thanks to you guys since you liked the picture we took together on Halloween last year :D

    But my greatest achievement would probably be the fact that I already appeared twice in your videos! HA! That is an achievement, isn’t it?… C’mon guys.. no? Just me? Well, whatever :P

  7. Is it an achievement if I say ignoring internet hate and not letting it bother me?

  8. I was at a loss first what I would answer for this question. But actually, my first achievement would be to discover you guys, and watching your videos when I was having a really bad time. It was different than just watching drama series, because your videos made me feel like I wasn’t alone. Hm, ok, too sentimental! And I remember the first time you replied to one of my comments here, THAT made me excited. And my second best achievement would be to meet my boyfriend through the internet. Hey, it’s common, I know, but still pretty awesome.

  9. I used to be very active in the fandom for a Canadian band, working on a fansite with a bunch of other fans. We all met online in a message board for that band, and most of us are still very close friends to this day. I also did a lot of amateur photography for them (to the point that people would recognize me at shows for it O_O); some of the pictures are still floating around online. If the internet didn’t exist none of us would’ve ever met. <3

    Most recently though my best Internet moment would be getting 500+ likes on a Facebook comment about the Kansas City Royals fan that interfered with Game 6 of ALCS. Completely unexpected! @[email protected]

  10. I’m a moderator on a website and routing trolls is pretty satisfactory.

    Going to a meet up of people from that website was also pretty cool.

    I wrote three related stories in Facebook status updates over a period of two years that was fun and challenging.

    My puzzle hunt team. I don’t know any of them IRL but we keep getting better.

  11. I used to do a podcast and I got around 5,000 to 10,000 downloads per week. Not a huge deal, but enough to keep me doing it. Then one day I got 80,000 all on one day! I’d gone viral! That made me feel proud on the Internet.

    But with popularity comes … the haters. Oy-vey.
