Youtube political commentator Jordan ‘Friendlyjordies’ Shanks has released an original 39-minute video, slamming a young, part-time VICE journalist who published a smear piece on Shanks.
The video features Shanks going off on VICE freelancer Dave Svenson’s latest effort entitled ‘Why Jordies should hang it up’ for a near record 39 minutes.
However, fans of the political gatekeeper were not so convinced, pointing out that this is the umpteenth time he has gone after super low-hanging fruit and was nothing more than a ‘cringey, self-indulgent wank.’
Shanks defended the allegations when pressed in the comments section of the video.
“It’s becoming increasingly hard to stay within the monetised YouTube algorithm, while delivering ‘edgy’ takes on team red vs team blue politics. I was funny years ago, but now most intelligent people have moved on,” Shanks said.
“However, my core audience of millennial midwits depends on me. Therefore, bring it on Junkee, VICE and The Project. The same normie-tier, political mockery shit people were tired of years ago, will live on. Vote Labor!”
Jordies is also rumored to be working on a ‘Comedy for Aussie Midwits’ roadshow, featuring himself, the Betoota Advocate and Mick Molloy.
