The Nostalgia Critic Takeover was an event during which the SiIvaGunner channel was used by the Nostalgia Critic after he defeated Inspector Gadget during his takeover. Keeping with his theme, Nostalgia Critic uploaded many rips that used old memes like Meet the Flintstones and blue balls, and a large portion of the rips were old rips from the GiIvaSunner era.

Summary Edit

The channel description is changed to:


The ONLY Official Youtube channel for the Nostalgia Critic and SilvaGunner.

New Nostalgia Critic rips every two hours.

New Flintstones Flashbacks every two hours.

New Snow Halation Memorization every two hours.

New Nigra's Never Seen episodes every two hours.

New Blue Balls every two hours.

Classic throwback rips are uploaded after they are cleared (and are willingly submitted by a team of content creators). Sometimes they are uploaded on an inconsistent schedule, so check the playlists. Same with Soulja Boy, Chip the Ripper, and mashups.

The description catchphrase is changed to "Read the channel description so I don't have to," as a reference to the Nostalgia Critic's catchphrase, "Hello I'm the Nostalgia Critic I remember it so you don't have to."

Most of the rips uploaded during this time are released in the album Inspector Gunner 2 With Critic, which was announced in "An AWESOME Announcement!"

After the last video, the channel "reboots" (referencing SilvaGunner: Rebooted) and reverts to the SiIvaGunner avatar, which means the channel returned to its original state[1]. The channel description has a typo ("mmostly") in it.

Background Edit

The inclusion of Doug Walker as channel host comes a few days after several content creators for Channel Awesome (which owns Nostalgia Critic) came forward with their stories of abuse and apathy from the owners of Channel Awesome. Notably, many of the accounts detail how Channel Awesome focused almost exclusively on promoting the Nostalgia Critic, often at the detriment of the other contributors. This is perhaps the reason for the Doki Doki Literature Club!-esque profile picture, which comes from a scene in which a character has disposed of everyone else in order to be the only person at the center of the player's attention.

Types of rips uploaded Edit

Rips from this takeover included, but were not limited to, the following types:

Near the end of the takeover, some medley rips were uploaded.

Additionally, the upload speed was raised back up to bi-hourly (sometimes hourly) for the duration of the takeover.

Timeline Edit

April 9 Edit

Tweets:

  • "Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic; I rip high quality video game music so you don't have to!" [included with the profile picture][2]

April 10 Edit

April 11 Edit

‏ Tweets:

  • "I have always tried to keep my dealings with my content partners out of the public eye & despite any differences or disagreements I have never publicly spoken negatively about any of them, but a response to the accusations leveled against me must happen" [included with this link to the "Get the fuck off my property" clip used in "You are filled with announcementation.".[note 1]][3]

April 12 Edit

Tweets:

  • "😃" [the "happy" emoji][4]

April 13 Edit

April 14 Edit

Tweets:

  • The account retweets Chaze the Chat's Tweet about hosting a new streaming channel[5].

April 15 Edit

Tweets:

  • "Just ran into a loyal fan! I love my fans!" [included with a picture of Chaze the Chat with Doug and Rob Walker from 2012][6][7]

Trivia Edit

  • The inclusion of a cinnamon bun in the profile picture is perhaps a reference to a purported incident in which Doug Walker unwittingly ate a Cinnabon frosted using a sex toy.
  • The banner includes a portion of the Nostalgia Critic's introduction since 2016.
  • Chaze the Chat has stated that he had the idea for Nostalgia Critic becoming a channel host since around February 23[8], when he created the "Doug Walker fan server"[9]. Coincidentally, the "Not So Awesome" document appeared on April 2.

Notes Edit

  1. A reference to this Tweet by @ChannelAwesome:
    CA has always tried to keep our dealings with our content partners out of the public eye & despite any differences or disagreements we have never publicly spoken negatively about any of them, but a response to the accusations leveled against us must happen
