"...of 2017" is a high quality announcement video and vlog. It was used to announce the albums Rips of Christmas Past and Rips of Christmas Future.

Content[edit | edit source]

The video is a vlog by Chaze the Chat. It is a continuation of "The Final Rip". In the vlog, Chaze introduces himself, and announces that the team released two albums: Rips of Christmas Past and Rips of Christmas Future. He explains that the two albums are separate because the 2016 rips were all about The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis and had mainly Kirby Planet Robobot music. Chaze then announces that SiIvaGunner is now in Season Three, officially ending the Season Two mentioned in "Megalovania (Chex Mix) - Undertale". The upload schedule has been moved up to eight rips, and there are some "other" changes to the channel as well. The "other" changes are the change back to SiIvaGunner as channel host after having The Voice Inside Your Head, Inspector Gadget, and President Haltmann for so long once SiIvaGunner went to sleep. Chaze also mentions MAGfest, which SiIvaGunner will attend from January 4 to January 7. There will be an autograph session and panel on Saturday, January 7, The autograph session is at 2 p.m. and the panel will be at 8 p.m.

To end off the video, Chaze thanks the viewers and gives a cryptic (if not coy) message.

[Chaze the Chat is staring down at the camera with his hands supporting him as he slouches towards it. He is in a brightly lit room standing in the center on the frame. To his left is a wood frame window with the blinds shut. There is a small gap between where the lowest shutter rests and the bottom frame, a black rectangle of space. To Chaze's right is a white couch, facing towards him, unused while the ripper rests his hands on an unknown surface. Accompanying the couch's vigil is a pillow with a striped design on it. Curved and white.

He himself is wearing a dark Pokémon shirt with the four original starter Pokémon on it (from clockwise, starting from top left): Squirtle, Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander. The man's face is red, perhaps due to the light that emanates from behind him. The light glints off of seven guitars on the beige wall directly behind him. They are all of an array of shapes and sizes, and one is even an acoustic guitar. As the video begins, Chaze puts his arms down on a surface off-screen, perhaps a desk situated below the camera. He gives himself a moment to prepare, opening his mouth and formulating the words. This must be important. The ripper begins to speak:]

Hey guys, I am Chaze the Chat... and... um... [He briefly flicks his eyes away to one side, then returns his gaze to the camera.] If you don't follow the channel close- or if you're pretty much new here, um, [Chaze smiles, and puts his right closer to the camera] I run SiIvaGunner [He looks away again] and I basically run the day-to-day operations the channel and make sure that everything runs smoothly. Um, [A brief pause occurs while the speaker moves on to his next point. He looks away for a second, and adjusts his stance.] I wanted to make this Vlog because there's a few things that I've been wanting to talk about, the first being that w- We've released two albums, uhm- [His eyes dart to the side, perhaps reaching back in his memory] a few days ago. Um... One of them is with the Christmas rips from 2016 and the other one is the Christmas rips from 2017. Um, I figured to separate them into two albums because, um, [Again, Chaze calmly unfocuses his gaze from the camera, reaching for phrases he knows are there.] the 2016 rips had all the Robobot stuff in it and, um, 2017- it would have clashed with the 2017 rips. So, um, I thought splitting them up into two albums was basically the, um, best way to go about that. Um, and you can download both of them in the description. There's also mirrors and- Um, I'm not sure if the mirrors will be there right away, but if they are, um, cool, huh. [Chaze laughs nervously, and looks away]

Um, the next... thing I wanted to mention is, well basically the last time I when made a vlog I said that SiIvaGunner was currently in Season Two, um, because the Christmas Comeback Crisis had gone on too long. Um, and, I wanted to say here that Season Two has ended. Season Two of SiIvaGunner is officially over. And that's because we are moving into Season Three. Um, I'm really excited for Season Three. You're going to notice a few new things, um. First off the upload schedule will be more frequent, um... Those of you who are new here or even or... Gosh, even, the past like- if you've been here for only like half a year or something, um, you may not know but we used to upload hourly. Um, and we're not going to go back to hourly uploads. Um, but we are going to be increasing [the frequency of] our upload schedule, um. So you'll notice a higher frequency in those uploads. Um, I think we're going to be moving up at eight... per day. Eight uploads per day. Um, so, hopefully that's a reasonable amount for you guys hopefully you enjoy, uh, what's coming. And, uh, you'll notice some other changes but I'm not going to spoil them here. Um.

The next thing I wanted to mention is MAGfest is coming up, um, from January 3 to- oh, January 4, sorry. Um, to the 7th. Um, it's going to... um, be really fun. There's going to be a panel and autograph session on Saturday and, um, the autograph session is at 2 p.m. and the panel is at 8 p.m. on Saturday. So, um... yeah, we're going to be talking about just the channel and, um, how to make rips. Things like that, um... And, there's going to be a question and answering session at the end too, so, that should be really fun.

Um... and, I also just wanted to say thank you for your continued support. I really appreciate everyone. If you're only- If this is your first video or your one-thousandth video - or even, like... your seven-thousandth (Grand Dad) video - um, hope- I hope you stick around and enjoy and thank you so much. It really means the world to me. Um, and, yeah that's basically all I had to say. Um, trust no one. Question everything.

[At this point, Chaze reaches towards the center of the screen, ending the video.]
