wow, good watch.

i have very mixed feelings about these "reaction" videos.  this one seems legit, but 99% of the genre is folks gushing incessantly over something they've never heard in order to harvest likes & subs.  this genre of video seems made to pander to fans of the subject of the review: if you like jethro tull, then you'll love a video of someone gushing over JT.  it provides validation - "yeah, i do have good taste in music - see?  this person who has never heard my fav band before loves it too!"  it's so easy, so patronizing... yet it feels good. 

i have yet to come across a single reaction video where the reviewer/reactor trashes what they heard.  makes sense, since there is less emotional attachment.  would you bother watching a 12-minute video of someone trashing nickleback?  of course not, you can do that on your own and having your hate validated isn't nearly as powerful as having your likes confirmed (unless you're a sith, obvs).  the genre seems very formulaic: find a crowd you want to suck up to, identify their preferred musical genre, then record a butt-load of videos of you declaring that this music you've just heard for this first time has changed your life for forever.  repeat and monetize.

she addresses this in another video of hers.  she says that's the way it would be pronounced in Finnish, but has switched to the "correct" English pronunciation, and she thinks it sounds weird as hell.

This is far better than that eurovision tripe all over netflix.  With the possible exception of Netta Barzilai. https://youtu.be/92sDnLblj38
