Hadn't seen it. Looks like Ben vapes too, the way he took that first hit. Hard to believe Voopoo would actually sponsor a vid by a prankster. They better have or 'ol Ben there could have more trouble than he already has.
Won’t be giving them anymore of my money
It’s morally repugnant... a 10 year asking thier mom can I have a voopoo .....how can someone think that’s ok on thier channel?
Just irresponsible and shameful on both of them
if it’s just a prank ....that’s just as bad, either way its reprehensible with the news going on with Juul at the moment
I question if VOOPOO actually sponsored it because I won't take just what the guy said as actual proof. The jerk is a prankerster so............
So I decided to contact VOOPOO and ask for some first hand information from the Horses Mouth so to speak and received this reply. I received permission to repost the replies. So only the video posted above shows the original which was promptly removed.
Actually, it is caused mainly due to my personal work mistakes. I am so sorry that I failed to thoroughly evaluate Ben's main video audience although the video has set 18+ viewing restrictions. Not only has it caused worries for the majority of e-cigarette users, but also negatively affected our company's brand image.
The original intention of VOOPOO is to serve the tens of millions of ecigarette users across the globe and we have never ever led and will never ever lead nonadults to smoke. Also, VOOPOO is one of the active members dedicated to the joint development of the vaping industry. In response to the BEN's video event, VOOPOO immediately took measures to prevent the video from far spreading. On the one hand, the video was instantly removed on the second day after the launch. On the other hand, all official medias like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and all other magazine advertisements are required to add 21+ age warning sign to the pictures and texts.
Furthermore, followup will have more specific and indepth actions to show our attitude. We think highly of everyone's criticism from this event that reflects our not doing well enough. And there remains much to be improved on team management.
Some of the reactions from vapors are funny. OMG he is vaping liquid helium. Like that is even possible
Yeah Helium in liquid form would never do anything but fly away.
Whether it’s possible or not ...kids think that’s fun and want to have a go ...is more the point of my outrage, difficult to spin it any other way or play it down.....It’s not funny it’s just douchbaggery to make a quick buck
Thanks Steve ....good on you
I just realized VOOPOO responded to me pretty fast, actually less than a day. So how come the poster of the video has not posted an update? FB messenger was screwed up on my PC and I did not notice they responded until I saw it on my phone this morning and I could have posted their response to me on Monday.
No idea on that ...I can take this vid down and replace it with vics or something instead of peeps prefer, just thought this one had more Info in it
Searching I was only able to find the video you linked here so it appears to me at least that is all that is still out there. I probably could work a little harder and find something but to me it just seems like someone creating drama. JMOFO
I was talking about peoples reactions. That video happen something like a month ago and the guy has been exposed as fake for his other videos as well
Isn't it ironic the one review goes by the name twisted420. Vic had all his studio gear stolen. I made a joke if he apologized to voodoo they might give it back
Adults watching can sort between stupid and not stupid...prank vids have a place as long as its targeted at the right audience with appropriate ratings based on the content that week... but plugging a sponsors product like this without those ratings to begin with ....don’t you think it’s wrong?
What I think is a problem is that the reviewers are propagating the original video which was promptly removed to increase their own following. Where are the "VOOPOO is doing the right thing" videos after mistakenly allowing some dumbass to post a video. I know they are now vetting who reviews products.
Lame excuse by Voopoo in that email responce ^. They even contradict themselves by saying(in not so many words) that they remorsefully didn't use diligence before sponsoring the vid, but then say they stay involved in promoting vaping in a positive way. Can't have the second without diligence on the first.
Let's sponsor a vid by this YT guy that has all these followers. It will promote our brand.
Is he a vape reviewer?
No, but look at his following.
Oh shit, we didn't think a promoter of pranks would prank us --
If the vid didn't involve vaping on screen, but was still sponsored by a vape manufacturer, it would still be bad > based on the other prank vids
I thought he changed his name to twisted419?
Can someone from the UK tell me what a "bell end" is? Probably an idiot but is there more? The guy in the OP vid is pissed!
or maybe they are speaking out on something they feel strongly on? ...only the first one has the vid on which he uses to dissect afterwards
if everything was taken down it would be heresay and then peeps would say it didn’t happen and those who spoke out would still get shit for saying anything on the matter
Bell end = Dickhead
I'm proud to say I have zero Voopoo products and probably never will. They sound shady AF. The guy was right in one of those videos. You don't see Aspire or Smok sponsing some idiot who's main audience is probably kids. That bell end guy who did the stupid video is just cringey.
Like I said they could post an update that VOOPOO is working to correct the problem the Bellend caused and how they are working to prevent a future occurrence. But I guess no drama in that? Surprised the Queen hasn't made a video with tons of profanity and how he is losing it! Or did he?
Wow, how did I miss this drama?
see where you’re coming from ...and agree if the company is righting thier wrongs it’s fair to make an update
...personally I’d do it only after they demonstrate repeated positive actions, early crowd control to save face doesn’t count
Not in his videos
If I had someone I really hated i would give them Smok mod to make a video
I do have a couple VooPoo drip tips.
