  • Good evening. I'm Poppy Harlow and you're watching Pew News.

  • [Brace yourself for the lazer]

  • [ pop of destiny ]

  • The first news TANACON, you're sick of hearing about it. I'm sick of talking about it(not really)

  • The first news: TANACON. You're sick of hearing about it. I'm sick of talking about it (not really)

  • So let's just jump IN TO IT. Trust me,

  • there's some pretty spicy news in here that you need to know about.

  • For those who don't know Tana Mongeau, the youtuber made a meet up

  • convention at the very same time as VidCon at the very same location as VidCon and,

  • me ignoring all the lies that were involved,

  • it was, to summarize it, a disaster. Thousands of young fans were waiting outside in the sun with no food, no water, no cover

  • for hours until eventually the event got entirely canceled,

  • disappointing fans that thought they were gonna meet their favorite creators, you know

  • probably parents and themself obviously; spending a lot of money on travel, hotel and

  • the ticket themself (itself), which were just rendered useless. The first blame that we were told was that

  • 15,000 people (Tana- 15,000 people)

  • Just magically showed up unexpectedly, and there's no way for anyone to just

  • handle that situation

  • and

  • a lot of people bought it - I even bought it at some point - but later, it came out that that was a lie from a

  • police statement from the City of Garden Grove police department saying that 4,000 tickets were sold and only a thousand

  • people could actually fit in the event.

  • So then it caused a lot of drama and speculation as to "Did Tana know about this?" "Did Good Times, the event organizer,

  • did they know about this?" and there was a lot of back-and-forth going on and it wasn't really sure what exactly

  • went wrong, who is

  • responsible of these two parties: Was it Tana? Was it Michael from Good Times?

  • Well now we have the answer [pop] don't you just love a nice conclusion. Thanks to Shane Dawson's latest video. He's a

  • Close friend with Tana Mongeau,

  • so we get the inside truth, and sorry- not just the truth about Tana Mongeau, but the *REAL* truth about

  • Tana Mongeau...

  • Now the video is 41 minute long and I will [eh] I definitely recommend watching it if you're interested, but I will, however,

  • summarize it for you. It's basically 30 minutes of incoherent, ugly sobbing.

  • (incoherent, ugly sobbing)

  • Does anyone know what she's saying? Scientists are still trying to figure this out. I'm Poppy Harlow and rest assure(d),

  • I will do my best. We are working around the clock to decipher this

  • AND YOU

  • AND YOU BELEEBEE DE BE

  • AND YOU BELEEBEE DE BE GE GIBBON DESIEN

  • AND YOU BELEEBEE DE BE GE GIBBON DESIENVDEAS#VING

  • [ pop ] In my opinion, Shane did a really good job

  • at giving the most balanced view on this situation as he possibly could.

  • That being said, they are friends. It's never going to be a balanced

  • presentation, and in my opinion there was a LOT of Tana

  • constantly going after Michael and deflecting blame towards him.

  • She doesn't have many options to play at this point. [Tana- because I don't know should

  • I have another venue tomorrow?

  • Should I keep trusting Michael when he keeps *christian channel* me over

  • I don't understand anything, and you still have not answered my last like ten questions to you

  • you just keep diverting the subject] Poppy- because you don't let him speak, Jesus Christ, and I'm sitting there like

  • It doesn't matter. I can agree

  • that you- she feels betrayed, that, you know, she thought the event would handle it...

  • It doesn't matter. None of it matters and I'll tell you why, because they both knew.

  • They both

  • Knew, THEY BOTH KNEW, both Tana and Good Times knew

  • [ ??? ]

  • That the event only held a thousand people,

  • they both knew that they sold tickets for 5,000,

  • which isn't surprising!

  • Anytime I work with a company, the first thing they report is "How many things did we sell?", or "How many

  • blablabla

  • did we sell?", "How many units did we turn?", "What profit did we make?"

  • It's pretty relevant information, and the fact that they're pretending like

  • They didn't know any of this-

  • haHAA

  • We could, but are we gonna be more responsible and drop it from 5,000 to 3,000?

  • Which is still three times too many people. They both knew, they also knew that the hotel only held a thousand two hundred

  • um

  • [ Michael- I have it set to 5,200 right now ]

  • (mimicking Tana) i LoVe ThAt FoR uS

  • yeah... Do you love it now Tana? And the final bit that annoyed me so

  • much: the final clip that is so

  • annoying to me and I can't- it's

  • Let's just play it

  • [ Tana- Like people LOVE to be oppressed outside... [YES!]

  • (incomprehensible squawking)

  • ...like they love that s*** ]

  • Tana Mongeau- "People love to be oppressed outside"

  • [Tana- People love to be oppressed outside] Tana! Hello, in case you're watching,

  • I hope you are, I have a message for you: you say in Shane's video

  • many times that you want to make it right, you might you want to make the situation better,

  • but you don't know how because it's too overwhelming

  • [Tana- I let so many people down and I want to make it right but I-

  • It's crazy. This is not something I ever thought would happen, and I don't know what to do

  • but I have to make it right] You're in luck, because I know how to make this right and I'm not saying that sarcastically or un-

  • ironically, here's what you gotta do. Delete your channel. You clearly don't deserve to have an audience.

  • The people being oppressed

  • outside was your audience - the people that care for you, the people that paid money to see you. To me,

  • this is a perfect example of Greed of Ego and Greed of Money being combined and creating this giant mess and, ultimately,

  • everyone loses... except me because I get content to criticize.

  • I mean, I had fun :)

  • [ pop ]

  • Next news! Every once in a while, a death occurs in relation to a video game

  • Usually it's in regards of someone playing for 40 hours straight, even playing for days on straight, and lately,

  • we've been seeing

  • uuhhh uhh

  • Movement more and more towards the idea that gaming is something harmful,

  • the White House, for example, exclaiming that

  • "video games causes school shootings." World Health Organization classifying gaming disorder as a mental health condition.

  • We talked about this on this channel, but we haven't seen before a

  • psychological death related to video games, at least as far as I'm concerned. Until now [News Anchor- Good morning,

  • we're gonna start this morning by talking about a free online game

  • after police and a coroner have warned about the risks of it to children.

  • It's called Doki-Doki

  • Literature Club, and it starts like a dating game set in a high school and features a group of animated girls in a book club.

  • Things do turn sinister with characters self-harming and

  • killing themselves. It's said to be suitable for players aged 13 or over.

  • It was launched last year and was downloaded 2 million times in the first 4 months.

  • An inquest will be held into the death of a 15 year old called Ben Warmsley from Bari whose father said the game

  • dragged his son in] Poppy- So it was reported in the Manchester news that a 15 year old boy was found dead, now his dad and

  • Coroner have warned about the horror online game he was playing,

  • Doki-Doki Literature Club. This has been covered in a lot of different media:

  • "Don't let your child play Doki-Doki Literature Club before reading this." It's a bit late

  • now, isn't it? A quote from the father is saying that "Ben was growing up fast. It's hard for parents,

  • but this needs to be highlighted. There is no confirmation yet, but we believe that the game could be linked to Ben's death."

  • So they're not outright blaming the game for the cause of death. They're just saying that it's a potential cause.

  • That isn't really what gets echoed through the media and Doki-Doki is the front face of this

  • uh

  • sad event because of it. But what I've noticed while reading through a couple articles is that

  • the description of the game doesn't really fit what the gameplay actually is. You know, I played the game on my channel.

  • It was very popular; people really liked it,

  • it's an amazing game in my opinion, and the constant point that's being

  • reiterated in these article is that "The game will not leave you alone.

  • It will drag you in." That's- doesn't fit Doki-Doki in my opinion,

  • but, fine. Then it's pointed out in another article that the game is an online game -

  • which it isn't, I don't know where they got that from - and the father

  • describing the game as "the character

  • befriends and love you and give you tasks to do but if you do not do them

  • they turn nasty," doesn't really fit either, and

  • then finally, after reading this: "the game was linked with his mobile phone and he would be contacted by text message during day and night,

  • often waking him up." That's when I realized...

  • They're not talking about Doki-Doki Literature Club. They're talking about another game. It's even shown here in another article.

  • They're talking about

  • Mystic Messenger, a game where you message people, a game that will give you notifications at random points,

  • at least I think, that's what I imagine is what he meant - a game that drags you in, a game that's free - it all fits.

  • It all fits perfectly.

  • If you go to Doki-Doki's website, the game doesn't lure you in; it's not some sort of con to

  • portray it as this colorful game and it's really a

  • massive plot twist to anyone that it's a horror game. People know you go on the website and it's tagged as a

  • psychological horror, and the first text that shows up is that the game is not suitable for children and those who

  • (are) easily disturb(ed).

  • But then I thought it was interesting because, in contrast to these other gaming-related death(s), this game is actually very short.

  • It's not focused to drag you in or keep you playing or keep you hooked on the game like many other games are designed to

  • be these days.

  • And, after this article came out,

  • another parent came forward and said the same thing - that their child hads- "had problems sleeping, stopped eating,

  • "there was no clear signs of what would happen."

  • But, "there were many things happening with my son and Doki-Doki is just one part of it,

  • but I need the death of my son to have some meaning." Now

  • I can't possibly imagine what it's like to lose a child and I

  • don't know the hardship of what it's like to being a parent and I'm not

  • blaming any parent...

  • Sometimes horrible things just happen for no good reason.

  • But in my opinion, one videogame doesn't drive you to do this - at least not Doki-Doki Literature Club -

  • it's just not a reasonable claim, and, I'm gonna put on my Sonic Sez

  • meme thumbs up here,

  • PewDiePie says, as a parent you should be equally focused on what your child is doing online or in front of the computer as

  • you are focused on what they're doing in their everyday life.

  • I think a lot of parents don't realize that kids are practically growing up in front of their computers and it's a massive part of

  • their social interaction. To some extent, it needs to be monitored

  • to prevent these sort of things from happening. And the fact that the parent in this instant (instance) described

  • another game and calling it Doki-Doki Literature Club

  • shows, to some extent at least, that they didn't know what the child was up to, or at least didn't understand it, and I understand

  • that it's confusing as well,

  • but it- what really amazes me here is how poorly this was covered by the media

  • with almost every single news article all pointing to Doki-Doki, when, clearly,

  • that's not it. What are your thoughts? What are your opinions? I want to hear them.

  • Let me know in the comments. Kind of a downer.

  • It's not the most fun- pleasant news to talk about, but I think it's important nonetheless.

  • And finally, I appreciate all the support on Pew News

  • [ pop that obliterated the universe and all existence ] ily ;3

Good evening. I'm Poppy Harlow and you're watching Pew News.
