    So.. my first YouTube video is ready and complete. I will be uploading it on Friday.
    It compares western(british) people to arab(algerian) people in a short comedy video.

    I plan to do many different types of videos that aren't just based on arabs or culture etc.

    Do you think I should change my YouTube name based on the fact I plan on doing many different types of videos ? Or is "That Arab Guy" fine as is.

    I like the name "That Arab Guy" but I was wondering if some audiences wouldn't be interested as they might assume my content is just to do with Arabs.

    Maybe I'm over thinking this ? Tell me what you think. Thanks.

    So my first video is Arabs vs Westerns showing differences etc.
    My next video will probably be a part 2.
    Then I also have plans to make videos such as parody videos and pranks and whatever. Basically my videos won't be limited to a particular genre.

    Ok.

    Well, firstly. The comedy. In it, what are you discussing? Freedom, liberties and/or just general divisions in and amongst these two types of cultures. Cultural divides between east and west. I guess you could talk about religion. In fact, religion often impacts culture.It certainly seems to be the case in Islam for instance. But then again, that's based on your personal viewpoint- if you're religious or not how you as an arab guy perceive religious thinking.

    When you talk about audiences. You shouldn't be focused on getting everyone interested. Not everyone will be. Have a focus. A niche. 'That arab guy' to my mind is quite specific. I think of mainly only arab culture. East in the sense of countries like Yemen, Egypt, Algeria etc. Bear in mind that african countries that we don't immediately consider arab, eg angola, sudan, kenya may share the same values of family etc. So my point is have a clear focus on what you want and who you want to reach out to. Because for instance, when I look at a funny youtube video looking at arab culture and western links, I watch it to learn more about the culture, but in terms of the funniness of it. The humour- I don't really find it funny. So I'm isolated in that sense as a member of the audience. Is the purpose of your videos to highlight and inform people or just to make people laugh or a combination of the two.

    Hope that helped somehow. Or maybe I was just being OTT.

    :P

    No, I'm me.
    Arabs
    -> Kill homosexuality because muslim laws
    -> Flood Europe and not respect our views

    Western
    -> Liberal
    -> Flood everyone else and people think we coloning their country


    There's a few suggestions
