I'm back! How was Jamaa friends?
Now I realize that this is an old rivalry is probably over by the time I've gotten to it, but these are the things that interest me.
Also, I'm going to try not to hate on any one person in this... situation, because I'm not them, and they aren't me. I know it says in the "a bit about me" section that I am a proud Julian2 bean, but that fact will stay redundant for this post.
Here's a little backstory on this issue:
Julian recently posted a picture with an amazingly long caption on Instagram. He has since deleted the post, but his main points were about how Aparri has been copying both him and WisteriaMoon in the content that he puts out. He also said that Aparri constantly uses click bait in his videos and rips off Wisteria's thumbnails constantly.
Here is an excerpt o his post.
I'm very happy that Julian didn't talk trash about Aparri, mostly because it would've brought on a whole lot more of a mountain of hate for him.
I'm honestly kind of tired of all of this drama in the Animl Jam community. Julian is trying to make interesting videos, Aparri is trying to make videos. Why can't they let each other create the videos that they want to create?
However the points that Julian raised in his post intrigued me, so I took two videos; an Aparri one:
|Watch it *(here)*|
And a Julian2 one:
|Watch it *(here)*|
Then, I compared them side-by-side to discover all of the differences and similarities between the two videos.
First, we have the actual list itself:
1. Famous Jammer Looks
2. Must Show off the Rares Look
3. Cute Fox Look
4. Clanner Looks
1. Arctic Wolf with Spike Look
2. Eight Year old Girl's First Week on Animal Jam Look (lol)
3. Same Thing as Number two, but for a Boy
4. Eight Year Old Girl's Second Week on AJ
5. Fox with a Spike
6. Crazy Panda Look
7. Cram all of the Rares on Look
8. Red and Black, only.
9. The People Who Can't Get Spikes so They Have to Make Due with a Diamond Shop Spike Look
10. The Artsy Twelve Year Old Girl in a Nutshell (lol)
The first thing I notice when comparing these two lists is that Julian's list is much much longer. I have to give him credit for that because he spent a lot of time coming up with those things. However I think in overall accuracy, the medal would have to go to Aparri. Julian's "spike outfits" definitely hit the mark though. The only one I see repeated was the "must show off rares look"
Also, when I watch these two together, I definitely notice that Aparri is more relaxed with his audience, talking about whatever comes to his mind, while Julian's video is clearly scripted and enunciated.
I think that Aparri sort of throws together some of his videos and does an incredible amount of work on others, making me have to sort of sift through his account to find the good content, which Julian points out in his Instagram post. So that point is definitely true for me.
I also sort of have a problem with the Aparri fan girls, more so that they're kind of annoying and I don't usually go down into the comments section because of them.
Overall, I don't really hate either of them, they just are what they are, of course, I'll always be a proud Julian2 bean, but I'm not sure if I'll ever subscribe back to Aparri, not that I have any reason not to.
