Perhaps Im too old, but i really dont get this whole Zyzz thing at all.

I get that he was a 'brah' and a lot of people obviously thought his YT vids were pretty funny and he put out this 'persona' that tricked people in to thinking he was actually that guy so he could make money, but really, why is it even news that he has died. Lots of people die every day, some with good bodies, some that are funny. This whole 'he was an inspiration' is just a bit daft, dont the people who he 'inspried' realise that he was just acting to further his career?

It is sad that a young lad has died, especially for his parents as no parent should ever have to bury thier child.

Like I said perhaps I am too long in the tooth, but vacuous lads with fairly good bodies are ten-a-penny. He just seems like every other young 'amatuer bodybuilder' in every gym that i have ever been in where steroids are the norm.

I dont know of many 22 year olds that dont want aesthetics to get girls, or who wouldnt want to be part-time strippers. And there are plenty that build OK physiques with crappy genetics, especially aided by copius amounts of steriods, or perhaps thats the point.

Like i said I think I'm just too old to 'get in' lol

I'm in that club.

Quite frankly superficiality and arrogance don't do much for me. Speaking as a parent I would be embarrassed if my child acted like him, and I would have a long talk with my daughters if they wanted to date a guy like him.

Not spitting on his grave but as my mother said...if you make your bed you better be willing to lie in it.

If he actually was the same in real life as his 'persona' then I really cant see why people are mourning his loss like they are. And if he was just acting to make a buck, then fair enough he was a switched on guy, but that just makes the mourners even more stupid imo.

I've exchanged emails with him. He demanded cash or else he wouldn't be interviewed.

He is what he is.

In that case he is just another geared up no-one that has fallen in to the famous for being famous role, and I really cant see whats the big deal. Lads like him are, like I said, ten-a-penny in every gym around the world where they work on their mirror muscles and inject themselves with steroids. Nothing special. And the people the 'follow' him are just as sad IMHO as he is.

Move along please, nothing to see here.

Carl.

I did move on. I had no idea who he was, and then I watched that moronic video that somebody posted, and that was enough for me.
