Niall Comas (born 14 May 1997), better known by his online alias Pyrocynical,[1] is a British YouTuber. He is known for his commentary and Video game journalism. He is also known for his "So Guys, We Did It" Internet meme, which gained popularity in 2018.[2]

Career

History

MLG videos and start of channel (2014–2015)

Comas started his channel by making Montage (filmmaking) edits where he would compile many clips to make a humorous video. His first video, titled how to pizza, is the first video on his channel.[3] His most viewed video, MLG Teletubbies, currently sits at 16 million views.

Full switch to commentary videos (2015–present)

After his brief stint as an MLG montage creator, he began making commentary videos. During this time, his channel spiked in popularity, gaining him over 1 million subscribers. His channel would continue to grow during this era, especially after uploading a video involving Petscop.[4][5]

In 2019, Comas gained mainstream attention after drinking Belle Delphine's $30 bathwater, which is allegedly contaminated with herpes simplex.[6][7][8][9]

Controversy

"Leafy clone"

Comas was often criticized as a "LeafyIsHere" due to the strong similarity between their content, although they both have different personalities. On 11 March 2016, Jay Hathaway of The Daily Dot wrote controversial former YouTube Online streamer Soph (formerly LtCorbis) as "the future of YouTube" due to her original sense of humor. In the same article, Hathaway explains that Soph called every commentary channel, including Comas's, a "Leafy clone". Comas expressed surprise and amazement at the 11-year-old streamer's ability to understand original content on YouTube.[10]

Grooming allegations

On 29 October 2020, Twitter user Ivory Rasmus claimed grooming allegations against Comas.[11] He stated that he and Comas were engaging in sexual furry roleplay. Controversial YouTuber Turkey Tom created a Google Doc and posted a YouTube video about the allegations. The document is now deleted due to a violation of Google's Terms of Service.[12] In December 2020, Comas uploaded a response video, in which he attempts to prove that he is not a groomer, while also owning up to his irresponsibility of engaging in sexual roleplays with Rasmus without verifying his age in the first place.[13][14] Afterward, Tom's document became obsolete.
