Life is full of silly occurrences. Max Fosh is responsible for many of them.
Fosh enjoys the sillier things of life, and he uploads his pursuit of such things onto his eponymous YouTube channel.
What are some of those silly things, you might ask? Well, they include technically becoming the world’s richest man for seven minutes, DJ’ing Beethoven at a nightclub and legally becoming his parents’ favorite child. In fact, he’s so dedicated to finding such silly things that he created a “religion” called Silly-ism—just as another way to create a bit of fun.
Would it be a surprise to learn that Fosh does stand-up comedy?
Fosh reminds us to enjoy the sillier side of life—and that’s paradoxically important in a world filled with so many dour issues. We should be reminded that, while we should be serious often, we shouldn’t go through life so serious that we miss the beauty of the world around us. Fosh’s pranks cause many strangers around him to laugh.
And some of Fosh’s videos actually teach us, too. For instance, in one video, after having a private investigator tail him for a month, Fosh helps viewers learn how they can better keep their passwords protected from prying online eyes. In his video on creating the religion of Silly-ism, Fosh meets with an expert who explains how many religions are typically legally recognized.
Some of Fosh’s content is sexual. In one video, he spends a day with nudists, and he joins them for the experience (while critical parts are censored, we still see quite a bit). Fosh also attends a convention for pornographers, and many women are seen in revealing lingerie. Fosh furthermore hires a couple of porn actresses to see how well they can act in a genuine film. Fosh’s channel’s YouTube banner contains an image of him in underwear and another censored nude image of him during his nudist video.
We’ll also hear the occasional swear word, including an s-word, “h—,” “d–n” and “b–tard.” God’s name is occasionally abused, and Jesus’ name is used in vain. He visits a couple casinos and night clubs, and he sometimes drinks beer. In his video on Silly-ism, Fosh pretends to speak with God.
Max Fosh has some interesting ideas for videos. Many of his titles caused me to wonder how Fosh came up with each video’s premise. Whatever the cause, we know the intended result: do something silly.
Parents should note that due to Fosh’s occasional language and his exploration of some sexual topics, you likely won’t find the channel to be appropriate for your child.
Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. He doesn’t think the ending of Lost was “that bad.”
