WELCOME TO THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAINSTREAM MONDAY!
Mainstream Monday is a weekly article to keep you up-to-date with the latest social media drama and an insight into the deep world that we call the internet...
Beans and burgers, Bald Martin, Big Jill, 12-year old boy. Any idea who I'm talking about? Nope, me neither...
I'm sure you all know who I'm documenting this week, it's of course, big lad Morgz. Please excuse me throughout this portion of the article, as there will be multiple jokes made to avoid me getting publicly-humiliated for doing Morgz this week. Also in the media, Mr. Beast starts up a non-profit organisation, teamtrees.org. Donating $1 plants 1 tree, part of his promise to plant 20 million trees by the end of the year. I didn't document that this week due to me doing Mr. Beast a couple of weeks ago!
Anyways, if you've never heard of Morgz then you're probably in one of the prisons he's locked half of his family in. Morgan Hudson is a 17-year-old 'comedy/vlogging' YouTuber with over 10M subscribers! In most of his videos, you'll find him, his mum he calls 'big jill' and step-dad (aka. bald martin). I have to admit, like most people, I think we all watched Morgz back in the day before he got lost in a spiral of Mr. Beast videos and decided he would become the Lucifer of YouTube.
For example, in his most recent video, it features him and his 'family' attempting to face various 'spooky Halloween mazes'. Not even a minute into the video I'm already questioning who this 12-year-old boy is he's kidnapped from the McDonalds down the road. I think this is the first-ever Morgz video I've watched where his co-stars actually question why they're being forced to work for this maniac. In all seriousness, I believe Morgz is a great kids' YouTuber, just make sure to lock the doors before watching his videos. This is because I probably disturbed the people waiting for their plane at Heathrow Airport because of how loud he talks (yells). £10 earmuffs for all ages are on sale at Tesco, thank me later..
Each week I will be picking a crazy Featured Snapchat Story to document about, this week is Costume Countdown!
Costume Countdown is a Snapchat Story featured by Snapchat themselves. People can upload stories using the hashtag #costumecountdown and could possibly get featured. The aim of Costume Countdown is to provide/inspire people who need last-minute costume ideas, it's extremely popular around the Halloween season!
In a recent post, we see a grown man dressed ridiculously. What I mean by 'ridiculously' is multi-coloured teeth, a mohawk, orange jacket, black leggings, massive sunglasses and a golden chain around his neck. Personally, I won't be taking any inspiration from this as I'm not 50-years-old and I'm not prepared to colour my teeth for Halloween.
Although some of the costumes featured are really disturbing and absolutely hilarious, you might gain some inspiration! If you've run out of costume ideas, make sure to snag one from Costume Countdown to 'save' yourself this Halloween?! Be sure to check it out on Snapchat! Make sure to check back next week as I will be documenting another crazy Snapchat Show/Publisher!
Trending at the moment is the hashtag #ThingsWeAreNeverMeantToKnow. People are sharing conspiracies all over Twitter and using this hashtag to make people wonder!
You're probably all down on your knees thanking me that I didn't do something on Football this week. There was something football-related trending on Twitter, but I completely crossed it off my radar just for you lot! After looking at the posts from this hashtag for around 10 minutes, I'm noticing a lot of conspiracies that in some terms, are very realistic.
For example, 'Why don't the workdays get shorter when the days get shorter?'. This has caused me to wonder a lot more and makes quite a lot of sense the more I think about it. I'm no Conspiracy Calendar expert but this has gotten people raving on Twitter. Another example, 'Where is that beautiful house? Where is my beautiful wife? How did I get here?'. This made me chuckle quite a bit as for a lot of people, it's quite relatable, no offence.
If you ever need cheering up or want to have a little bit of a laugh, I recommend checking out #ThingsWeAreNeverMeantToKnow on twitter! Let me know what you think about this down below! Make sure to come back next week as I'll be documenting another trending topic from Twitter! 'It's not going to be football-related! #ThingsWeAreNeverMeantToKnow'.
Every week, I'll be talking about a bizarre Instagram account I've found and giving you an insight into what they post! This week, it's @mothmeister!
@mothmeister is known for creating images out of your worst nightmares, as you can see, they're pretty weird. When I first had a look, I thought it was just clowns. But then the further I scrolled down the weirder it got, at this point, I'm genuinely concerned for the future of Instagram regarding what I've been documenting over the course of the previous weeks.
You'll be happy to know, it's not just photos, it's videos as well! The videos feature 'creepy' music in the background that makes the whole concept 10 times weirder. In the first image, we see a clown-like figure holding an animal. The makeup done on the face of the clown creates a spooky atmosphere and doesn't look like something you'd want to encounter in real life. In the second picture, we see a person with a 'bag-like object' on their head. Both of the images are set in a scene with a really foggy background, adding to effect!
Overall, this is quite a spooky Instagram page that I'm documenting for Halloween, have an amazing Halloween everybody! Let me know what you think about all of these photos down below in the comments! If you want to see more images like this, be sure to check out @mothmeister on Instagram! Make sure to come back next week as I showcase another bizarre Instagram account!
