NicePooper.jpg This article is about a creator of YouTube Poop videos, known as a Youtube Pooper.


In Brief

william_ is a YouTube Pooper that makes detailed, effects-heavy poops with clean editing, visual-based humour, and a cinematic feel.

History

william_ came into contact with YTP periodically ever since he started his YouTube channel in 2010 to post his shitty animations. He first came across YTP while browsing asdfmovie videos and seeing a lot of WMM poops of it. Later on, he discovered popular SpongeBob poopers such as Fawful and MoBrosStudios and, knowing now that YTP could actually be good, he became an avid fan.

Eventually he got so into YTP that he decided to make his own poops. So he downloaded Sony Vegas and an episode of SpongeBob and got cracking. He also converted his YouTube account from a shitty animation channel into a YTP channel.

Extensive commentary on all of william_'s videos can be found on his personal site here.

First poop seen

Some really bad asdfmovie YTP that he can't find anymore. (Probably for the best.)

First poop made

Attack of the Flying Futchman (actual first poop, unreleased due to copyright issues)
The Inbetweenies Are Accosted By a Fish-Like Substance (first video actually uploaded to YouTube)

Style

william_ does not have a set style that he uses for his videos - instead, he makes an effort to use different techniques for almost every video. He's tried out pretty much every major poopism out there at least once. Nevertheless, he always uses lots of masking, weird effects, and clean, seamless editing in his videos. He also places large importance on pacing, making sure there is not a wasted moment throughout the video.

Preferred Sources

Preferred Software

william_ uses Sony Vegas 13 with BCC, Sapphire, and NewBlueFX plugins. He also (very rarely) uses After Effects with Red Giant plugins, mostly for making alt account video experiments. Recently, he has taken to using Blender for creating 3D assets and for achieving advanced effects.

Likes

  • YTPs that greatly alter the source material, creating new scenes and even plotlines
  • Also YTPs that don't. They're cool too. He likes all YTPs to be honest
  • Various cartoons and animes
  • Music: LOTS. Here's his RYM.
  • Pizza, pasta, and other savory delectables of Italian persuasion
  • High-quality animations

Dislikes

  • People saying YTP is dead (it isn't)
  • YTP drama (seriously guys it's just poop why d'ya gotta make it so COMPLICATED)

Reception

william_ has received very positive reception for the most part, with people mostly praising his editing skills, pacing, and humor. Among his subscribers are well-known poopers such as Awful Fawful, DinnerWarrior and EmperorLemon.

Criticism

  • Doesn't really use sentence-mixing as often as he would like to (though he wishes to change this in future with his CD-i poops)
  • His early poops consisted mostly of just him spamming effects, making little effort to include jokes. He has improved upon this since then, though.
  • His upload rate has slowed to a crawl as his videos and/or real life have increased in complexity.

Achievements

  • Made Emperorlemon's list of Top 25 YTPs of 2015
  • Has 3000+ subscribers and counting
  • Most popular video (Squidwarp's Time Travelling Adventure) has over 80,000 views

Influences

Fans

Trivia

  • All of his YTPs released prior to May 2016 were made using a really terrible laptop from 2007. He has since upgraded to a newer laptop.
  • He also produces an experimental plush-toy webseries, Bikini Bottom Adventures.
