      Comedy! Vor Monat +4

      @108 its called benefit of the doubt, he cant confirm or deny 100% that it was directly stolen from him to their writers room, and SNL is a massive buisness so why start nonsensical drama and flat out accuse them even if hes letting it go? For example, someone could have watched Joels video and loved it, then told their friend the premise acting like they came up with it, and then that friend tells their other friend whos an SNL writer. So to the writer it was just an idea from a friend. Unlikely, yes, but in a situation like this the best thing to do is give them the benefit of doubt.

    They have a commitment to putting out an hour of television on a weekly basis to a huge national audience that have expectations that it will be to a certain professional standard, they don't release a 5 minute artsy comedy video once in so often or whenever they feel like it. SNL are also mostly comprised of writers and comics that are 20-30 years deep into their careers, and have spent the tail end of that at SNL, putting what they can come up with into an hour every week. They're not new to this, fresh out of film school and eager to carve their niche as an artist.
    I don't think you're the best youtuber to confront with this, because all of the youtubers that I normally see shit on SNL are talentless bores themselves that just found an audience of zombies on here, and I think you're really talented and actually are probably more so than a lot of people in the TV industry (a rarity on youtube). But, yeah, commit to having an hour ready for a time-slot on here (I'm not even talking about doing it all live, just edit an hour worth of content) every week and see if you get to week 2 without padding the thing out with filler.

    I have yet to view either your original Charmin bears video or the SNL version, but I'd heard about the writers stealing the sketch from another creator and this popped up as a suggested video on my feed. Without viewing any of your creations just yet, I subscribed to your channel based on your amazing attitude alone. You should know how rare it is to encounter people like you in life. You could have reacted in many different ways, but you stood with pride and grace, knowing that the content you put out was exactly what you wanted it to be. Kudos to you for handling this with maturity and honesty. May you, your channel, and all your future endeavors be blessed.

    They 100% stole it! This is far from the first time I've seen this happen on SNL. I used to listen to a radio show in NYC and they'd always point out when their bits were stolen by SNL. It happened frequently.
    There's a fan of your work who's on the writing team who was too lazy and lacked the talent to come up with their own bit and just stole yours.
    I respect your class in how you handled this but they need to be called out and maybe even sued in order to prevent this from happening again.

      He calls them out in the video title and states that it's possible but very unlikely that they came up with this concept on their own, and that if this happened when he was still a smaller creator he'd be much more upset. He's very much the bigger man here by cutting SNL a bit of slack and instead using his time and space to plug smaller creators, but he also lays out the facts that it would take a lot of coincidences for it to be cocreation rather than plagarism (subconscious or otherwise) and everyone watching this video is going to make up their own mind about SNL. Short of actual legal action, it's not like there's too much more he can do, so I don't really see this as him letting them off the hook.

    You have a great attitude about this. Many years ago someone once told me that this is common in the entertainment business, and especially comedy. And before the internet, jokes or 'bits' were often picked up from comedy shows, writers literally scouting, taking jokes from comedians who were not well known and maybe never even knew their material was part of a Johnny Carson monologue. I'm sure that's not news though. In any case, I'm glad you spoke up about it! : )

    I really like how chill you are about it. I'm sure most people would understand if you were freaking out and angry and wanted to sue. But it takes an extremely confident creator to be so calm and happy that someone stole one of their comedy sketches. Props for being the bigger man.

    • Chase Sims
      Chase Sims Vor 2 Monate

      @Brian Hibbs I can agree with that statement. But even with Joel being relaxed about it, not many are that way. If this sort of thing became a habit they'd be sued into oblivion by someone not so chill.
      We need more people to react to things of this nature in the way Joel did. It's not every day that someone gets ripped off and just says, "ya know, this really legitimately doesn't bother me, nor does it need to." Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. People tend to be prone to react with violence and anger (I do that waaayy too often) but often - in the end - it wasn't worth the blood pressure spike.
      Another thing not being considered is... Maybe this was that SNL writers' way of trying to draw attention to Joel 🤷‍♂️ maybe they are a huge fan and decided to pay homage. A bit too closely, but still.

      The thing is he’s not sure if he stole his concept because as he’s already said he made a video that somebody else that already made. So now it adds that gray area. Hell there a few things that I’ve written down but never actually ended up creating that I then later learned that somebody else created way before I did.

    Its okay to feel like they stole it from you but at the end of the day its people watching this that is the reason for comedy in the first place. When they start 'stealing' (if you can call it that) more of your stuff then yeah maybe that becomes an issue. As long as things are being created and people are enjoying themselves. Very humble response Joel, you have the respect of this random person on the internet.

    First, nice work promoting your fellow creators and providing more avenues for us as viewers to explore. I sincerely can’t wait to check out their videos, they all look really funny.
    Second, I ultimately understand and respect your decision, however I’m upset with the position you and other small creators are put in.
    I think you should have made a big fuss and gone after NBC in the court of public opinion. This is obvious plagiarism/theft and they should be held accountable just like anyone else who plagiarizes is.
    I understand your perspective however I worry that inaction - from anyone, not just you - will empower companies like NBC to continue to allow thievery to occur.

    This made me think about how my husband years ago had the idea to make a filtered straw and everyone laughed and then a year later someone came up with the filtered straw and it was good for hikers and outdoorsy types. But it made me think of how sometimes people can have the same thoughts, ideas etc… but who knows. The charmin best thing seems so far fetched, to have the same idea even to the point of the script 🤔

    You're a class act, Joel. Not everyone has the self awareness to realize that as lame as this sort of thing is it doesn't steal from how well you've been doing, and even less people would pivot that to point to others who create as emphatically as you or the SNL cast does even if it doesn't get such high views.
