It was an everyday shoot and add day for younger YouTubers Gautami Kawale and Abhyudaya Mohan, who collectively run the channel, Slayy Point. Little did these two know that their video titled Why Indian Comments Section is Garbage (Binod) would go on to develop into a sensation on all social media platforms. In the latest weeks, social media has been flooded with memes about Binod. It was by way of Slayy Point’s video that this title caught the consideration of meme lovers and creators. And the relaxation, is historical past.
Ask them about their response on the recognition of Binod and their video, which has now garnered more than 6.three million views on YouTube, and Kawale says, “To be honest, we did not know it would reach so many people so far and wide. We knew the word Binod has a catchy ring to it, but we never urged our subscribers to spam it all over or to promote it. Luckily, they felt the same emotions as us when they heard ‘Binod’, and made it a thing all over India. Needless to say, this was definitely a next level experience for us in our YouTube career and will be a major highlight in our life.”
However, Mohan admits that this was simply one other video for them once they had deliberate it. “We have been YouTubers for four years now, and have seen our fair share of good, bad and funny comments. Hence, we thought it would be a great idea to make a video covering the plight of what happens to a creator when they post a video and try to look for feedback in the comments section. We scoured dozens of Indian videos from all over the internet, ranging from movie trailers to comedy videos to news pieces to look for the best types of comments that Indians make online. That is when we found this innocent comment of a guy who commented his own name and decided to speak about it in our video,” shares Mohan.
So, what have they got to say about the memes which have surfaced the web after their video? “We love that Binod has become a word that can be used for anything and everything. It is so wholesome, unproblematic and random that it’s being used to show love, sadness, anger, disappointment; or just to elicit a reaction of confusion from people’s favourite celebrities,” says Kawale.
The duo understands the commonplace they’ve to take care of after this and are all geared as much as take issues ahead. “It definitely kicked our butts, but in a good way. It forced us to step out of our comfort zone and not be afraid to innovate,” provides Mohan.
