The biggest annual YouTube FanFest was successfully held in Jakarta on Friday, 10 November 2017 at Gandaria City Mall. Some well-known and famous YouTubers from abroad such as the siblings Ranz Kyle and Niana Guerrero from the Philippines and 1MillionDanceStudio up to local YouTubers such as Reza Oktovian, Raditya Dika, and Chandra Liow lit up the event. Each of the YouTubers showed their effort on stage through their respective attractions which surely entertained the viewers there.
But from all of the action of the YouTubers, there is one that caught our attention which is the performance of the siblings Jovial da Lopez and Andovi da Lopez or known for their YouTube name SkinnyIndonesian24. Together, they present a musical drama titled "YouTubers the Musical".
The drama tells about the story of a man called Adit (Andovi da Lopez) who wants to be a YouTuber. But in the middle of the road, he faces difficulties and meets Mr. Famus (Jovial da Lopez) who apparently is a famous YouTuber. Mr. Famus then shares the keys of how to become a successful YouTuber.
What we like from this drama is the theme that is brought up to the scene which goes with the current YouTube phenomenon in Indonesia where many kids dream of becoming a YouTuber due to the amount of money it generates as well as the fans and the fame. However, this phenomenon is not supported by the content that is showed causing many copying other works and starting a drama thus making their content viral.
The message is well and softly packaged by SkinnyIndonesian24, therefore resulting in the viewers especially kids to understand and to learn to be themselves as well as to be proud of their own content. These are more important than the number of views or even the money. Watch the full video below:
