  • - Well, hello everyone!

  • My name is Tyler Oakley, and this week I got to go to

  • Florida for the weekend to go to a YouTube conference called

  • Playlist Live, and if you don't know what Playlist Live is,

  • Playlist Live is a YouTube conference every March

  • in Florida where a whole bunch of subscribers

  • come to meet their favorite YouTubers, a whole bunch

  • of YouTubers come to meet their favorite subscribers,

  • and I go to go and fangirl over everyone,

  • because basically, that's what happened.

  • So last Thursday, all of us YouTubers that live in L.A.

  • got on a flight all together to head on over

  • to Florida for Playlist Live, and everyone was vlogging,

  • and I was just like, if I sleep, I'll sleep for two days,

  • if I try to sit here, I will be bored out of my mind,

  • so I am starting to listen to audiobooks,

  • because if I read on a plane I get really dizzy,

  • and so I am listening to audiobooks, and I listened to,

  • here, let me find my book,

  • I listened to my absolute favorite book on my flight,

  • I've read it a million times, but I've never

  • heard the audiobook, "I Am Not Myself These Days,"

  • by Josh Kilmer-Purcell, it's the story of

  • a drag queen who falls in love with a male escort.

  • It's basically the best, most tragic, hilarious

  • love story of our time, if you haven't read it,

  • audible dot com slash Tyler Oakley, you can listen to

  • any of the books that are on there, one of them free

  • if you sign up through that little link,

  • because I was like, you know what?

  • If I'm gonna talk about it, y'all are gonna get

  • a free book out of it.

  • If you want to do that, the link will be below.

  • So, for the entire flight I listened to my book,

  • we landed in Florida, we got off and got to the hotel,

  • and we arrived and there are literally already

  • swarms of people in the lobby filming us entering the lobby,

  • and so it's very, kind of, crazy, and bizarre,

  • and amazing, 'cause like, a bunch of y'all came up to me

  • and hugged me and loved me and I was like,

  • let me check-in to my room before we just

  • engage in a big old love-fest,

  • and then Friday was a business day, so I was on

  • a couple of panels where we talked about, like,

  • behind-the-scenes YouTube-y stuff,

  • and then at one of my panels, y'all sang

  • "Happy Birthday" to me, and it was like,

  • the best thing ever, seriously, it was the best.

  • And then for Friday night on my birthday we went out

  • to dinner at Benihana with some of my favorite YouTubers

  • like Jack and Finn and Dan and Phil and Hannah

  • and Grace and Mamrie and Molly and all of these people

  • that I absolutely love, and I was just sitting there

  • at dinner thinking to myself, like, holy crap,

  • I get to spend my birthday with so many people

  • that I just look up to, and it was just,

  • it was mind-boggling, I loved it...

  • (crowd singing "Happy Birthday")

  • Here are just some of the people that were at my

  • birthday dinner, it was seriously, like, one of my

  • best birthdays ever, and then Friday night

  • was my birthday, and I may or may not have gotten

  • a little crazy, it was kind of terrible because

  • the next day I saw gifs on Tumblr of what I had done

  • the previous night, and it was very, like,

  • Katy Perry "Last Friday Night", like, I had no clue

  • what had gone on, and then I was seeing the gifs,

  • and I'm like, what have I done?

  • But it was an amazing time, obviously,

  • so then on Saturday I had a scheduled main stage performance

  • where I was gonna host a little talk show segment

  • with some of my favorite YouTubers...

  • (crowd cheering)

  • - Hello!

  • - [Tyler] This is for my video, sorry...

  • (crowd cheering)

  • So we had Jack and Finn and Marcus and Alfie and Caspar

  • and Sam and Louie and all of them were around me

  • and I was asking some provocative questions,

  • and y'all were screaming from the audience,

  • and the twins twerked, and I asked Alfie and Caspar

  • if they've ever seen each other naked,

  • and Sam Pepper tried to take off his shirt...

  • I think it went really well, I was just,

  • I felt so loved, especially at the end because, like,

  • all of the YouTubers that were on stage with me,

  • that I was interviewing, surprised me and came up

  • and embraced me and hugged me and loved me

  • and I was just like, if you saw the pictures of my face,

  • I looked like I'm in heaven, which I basically was.

  • It was just, like, a magical moment.

  • Sunday, what happened Sunday?

  • Sunday I went to have my meet-up, and it was supposed to

  • only be an hour long, because they allotted me an hour,

  • and I was like, girl, that ain't gonna work,

  • because my people like to talk, I like to talk,

  • I don't wanna just like, take a picture and run,

  • like, I wanna talk to people and like, get to know people,

  • so I was like, I will stay for as long as it takes

  • to get through everyone, and we ended up staying

  • for four hours, so many of you guys came,

  • so many of you guys that were wearing my shirts,

  • here are some of the pictures that you guys sent me

  • that we took together, my favorite thing to do

  • at meet-ups is to tell you guys to come with poses

  • that are fun, because I don't like to just sit there

  • and just smile at a camera, like, let's do some

  • crazy poses, so these, really fun, really good,

  • you guys are like, the best ever,

  • like, seriously the best ever.

  • I saw a lot of professional fangirls,

  • so it was really cool to see all of you guys,

  • these people that I feel like I see in the

  • comments all the time, or on Twitter all the time

  • replying to me, finally like, coming to life.

  • Sunday night was a more chill night,

  • I just relaxed, and honestly, one of my favorite things

  • about this YouTube conference was I really got to

  • hang out with a whole bunch of YouTubers that I

  • had hung out and loved prior, but like, get to know them

  • on a real, real deep level, and

  • I look up to these people, as content creators,

  • as friends, as people, it's like, it was just so cool.

  • It was just so cool.

  • So cool.

  • Honestly, I burst into tears on Monday while I was

  • packing in my room, because I was just so overwhelmed

  • by how much I felt love, like, love in this community,

  • and love with other YouTubers, and love with all of

  • the people that watch, and it just felt like

  • such a supportive, awesome environment, the whole weekend,

  • I feel so happy.

  • I feel so happy, I feel so lucky to be able to do this,

  • that was just so overwhelming for me.

  • So, just, heartwarming, and cool, and I loved it...

  • Here are some of my absolute favorite pictures

  • from the weekend that I took, and they are on Instagram

  • if you want to see all of them,

  • these are just a selection of some of my favorites,

  • like, ooh, look at me with that YouTuber,

  • like, ooh, look at me with that YouTuber,

  • like, ooh, girl, it was a good weekend.

  • And then Monday rolled around and I was so sad to be

  • leaving all of my favorite YouTubers, but it made me

  • so much more excited to do more collaborations,

  • and get together with more people,

  • and learn more about what they're producing,

  • and made me really want to make better content

  • and, you know, do more, more stuff, and go to

  • Summer in the City, and go to VidCon, and all these

  • crazy things that I can do, I really want to

  • look into doing more,

  • so if you subscribe, you will be along for the ride,

  • and if you liked my Playlist Live recap,

  • be sure to give it a thumbs-up, it was really fun

  • to talk about something that I just,

  • I legitimately got home and I was like,

  • I want to make a video.

  • I want to talk about this, because I was so excited about

  • the whole weekend, it was so good.

  • And also, the link to the free audiobook on audible dot com

  • will be below, just audible dot com slash tyler oakley,

  • you will get a free book to listen to,

  • and if you find one that you think I should listen to,

  • I will download it and listen to it,

  • because I need new books to listen to.

  • I think I might start talking about, like,

  • my favorite books every once in awhile,

  • because I never talk about books.

  • If you want me to, let me know,

  • because I listen to a lot of books,

  • I'm pointing at all my books,

  • my books are in stacks right here.

  • But yes! I think that is all I have for you guys

  • and, until then, have a fabulous life,

  • and, okay, yeah, bye everyone!

  • Later!

  • Taco Bell flew me out so that I could come

  • to their Passion Pit concert, and it was amazing,

  • I had never seen Passion Pit live, but

  • it was really cool because they let me go to the concert

  • and not only be a part of the concert...

  • - God bless, my name is Tyler Oakley,

  • we're on What's Trending. (laughing)
