              SPOILED BRATS do some good , donate to foundations for research or hunger, your such millionaires make a real difference, tire of seeing youtubers with out of reach gadgets thinking your life is so much sweeter cause you have them it really is not, im happy with a go pro , why you need a 40 k camera ??? your egos? trying to be cool and have people admire your rich ass? nahh, honestly a 40k camera is worthless because the video quality is the same as a person filming in a gopro through youtube , i dont see the differece lmao and your videos are simple point and shoot wtf do you need such equipment your not making movies this aint hollywood, 90 percent of youtube viewers see the videos in 480 p seriously not alot switch it to 1080p cause of their internet and slow viewing for quality, you wish to think everyone is watching you in 4k? when most people cant even afford a display in 4k? your out of this world to buy a 40k camera for the type of production you do and makes you a joke really, stop showing off so much

                                              Linus is making way too much money... for this video to even exist, or that there was a need for this video.

Would be cool if Linus had this kind of setup for when he does stupid sh!t with $40,000+ products and needs to put things back together. ;) He would be able to pan and zoom and virtually see every angle to where stuff goes.
