Have you heard of Joey Graceffa?

He’s a famous YouTube star  that walks around, blabbers, and films his privileged life in Los Angeles. Just by making video logs (vlogs), he nets around $200,000 a year.

Many wonder how that’s even possible:

Now imagine your house is situated on a Los Angeles street and Joey decides to park his car in front of your drive way like this:

You would tow it, right? After all, you’re a hard working citizen of the world, you can’t stay at home making videos of yourself in the mirror talking about your clothes, and then going out and trying to understand your chicken salad. The only logical solution is to tow the car, but when you do, Joey makes another video about it and complains of the whopping $200 he has to pay to get his car back.

But as you’ve seen from the video in this article, you come to realize that Joey is a damn liar. Actor and comedian Nate Clark, the man whose alleged driveway was blocked, doesn’t let Joey get away with his senseless lying and parking job. In fact, Nate cleverly exposes the YouTube star in a manner only a grown adult would understand by elaborately explaining in a five point lecture why and how Joey’s car was towed:

  • Joey said he blocked “just a little bit” of the driveway, so Nate refutes by showing an actual picture (above) of how much his car was actually parked.
  • Joey said that there were no parking restriction signs in the road where his car was towed. Nate explains how he considered putting a sign in front of his driveway, but added “that would be insane”, because really, who would need to put a no parking sign in front of their driveway?
  • Joey said that the person who towed his car should put his “fat ass car” on a diet so it could’ve squeezed out of the drive way. However, Nate points out that his Volkswagen Golf, which at 70.3 inches wide, is one of the slimmest cars out there.
  • Joey also said that whoever towed his car was a “slut”. Nate responded by saying, “That’s just not true man, I wasn’t trying to move my car so I could meet up with some sexual rendezvous, I just wanted to move my car because that’s my right.”
  • Nate warns that Joey should not leave his Federal Tax Return on the passenger seat of his car, joking about how much he made on YouTube in 2012, and how much he owes the IRS.

And despite many of Joey’s fans coming to the rescue, a lot of thumbed up YouTube and upvoted Reddit commenters whole heartedly agreed with Nate’s response:

Some of the most popular YouTube stars make more than a million dollars a year.

    All these “points” are incredibly weak. Joey obviously didn’t notice that he was blocking someone’s driveway, and assumed he got towed because of some wierd parking restrictions. He understated how much his car was blocking it because either (a) he misunderstood the complaint or assumed the person was overreacting, or (b) he was embarrassed and didn’t want to admit what he did. He’s not obligated to report every mistake he makes to his 2,000,000 viewers. Also, any psychopath (his pet name for his viewers) would know that he refers to EVERYTHING as bitches skanks sluts and whores, even inanimate objects. It’s how he expresses frustration, and viewers have learned not to take those remarks too seriously. About the tax returns in the car, well, *face palm* Joey can be forgetful, that’s just one of his flaws as a human being. All I can say is that I understand that the situation was quite annoying, but this video response was an overreaction.

    Possible counter arguments you would be faced with by those supporting Nate:

    1) Essentially, you’re victim blaming.
    2) Just because you don’t notice something/your actions doesn’t mean you’re any less responsible.
    3) When you park in front of someone’s driveway, you potentially put them at risk if there is any emergency.
    4) Joey may not be obligated to admit he made a mistake, but he had no problem lying to 2,000,000 of his viewers.
    5) The words “slut”, “skank”, “whores” and “bitches” can be substituted for even worse words but won’t change their meanings depending on who says them. Some Nate supporters have said horrible words when addressing Joey, but would claiming the same argument give those words an exception?

    These would be the points you’d be faced with from the other side. It’s quite interesting to see how this whole internet drama is turning out.
