A Statment on the Termination of my Channel


My channel was falsely terminated by YouTube on the night of July 30th, I didn’t find out about the termination until I woke up the next morning and checked my email and had an email from a viewer that I’ve spoken with before, named Tim, Tim said he was sad to see my channel get terminated and that he wishes me luck in whatever I decided to do, I tell MommyMommy15 about the termination of my channel and we quickly submit an appeal to the YouTube team to declare that we believe YouTube has terminated my channel falsely and that I have done nothing wrong.

We received no email or notification whatsoever regarding the termination, nor, did we recieve anything regarding any Community Guideline strikes that could have lead to the termination, and that is leads us to believe the termination was false and unjustified.

We then waited a few days and then shot over an email to the YouTube Creator Support team to see if they were looking into our appeal, we received a response within 24 hours and the employee at YouTube said that they have no record of our inital appeal, so we go ahead and submit another one and notify this YouTube employee that we sent in another appeal.

A few days later, we received an email back from the same YouTube employee stating that YouTube has decided to keep my channel terminated, this obviously broke both I and MM15’s hearts, we lost all of our content we’ve made, all of the moments we’ve had with you, and most importantly our connection with you guys.

I then posted the response from the YouTube employee on my Instagram and got many comments and DMs from our viewers advising us that we should fight the termination again… so we did, we sent a reply to this YouTube employee stating the reasons why we believe the termination was false and that we request this to be looked into further because we have done nothing wrong…. and it worked!

The YouTube employee got back to us and said that they sent in a request to the Terminations team for an investigation into the termination, this was 3 weeks ago…. we although been receiving daily apologies from this YouTube employee about the speed of this ‘investigation’ and we are waiting patiently with our fingers crossed in hopes that we get our/my channel back.

Finally on the 27th of August, we received a response regarding the final decision on our account, whether it would be unsuspended or not, we were excited to open it, but were instantly disappointed when we seen that our channel would stay suspended after a ‘careful’ review by the YouTube Supsensions Team.

Although, I and MM15 are not gone forever! MM15 will start uploading regular content of mine onto her channel, just like the content you’d normally see on my channel.

For my older videos, most of them are gone, around 85% I’d say, but there is some you can still watch! Yup that’s right, they are still on YouTube! Just not on my channel.

My friend created an archive channel and has been uploading videos either he can find or that I have saved and send to him for him to upload.

That channel can be located here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS3vXewVMSBnmEjzSTyO3zQ

Sorry if you can’t find one of your favorite videos on the channel, what is currently there, is most likely all that is available of my old content.

Thank you so much for reading this, and much love and light to you.

– Jacob.

Abusive/Predatory behavior can be reported via our online reporting form, which can be accessed here https://asmrtistunited.org/report-abuse

Once you submit your report, it will be sent to both us and our legal team, within 24-48 hours you will receive a human prepared confirmation email along with a report reference number, please note that other then a confirmation email, you will receive no follow-ups, after that an investigation will then be launched into the activity of the reported user, If their actions violate the law, we will pass our findings and collected report details to the proper law enforcement agency.

ASMRtist United’s 15-Minutes of Fame in a WIRED UK article!

In October 2018, JacobJacob15 ASMR, President of ASMRtist United, and MommyMommy15 ASMR were contacted by the marvelous Amelia Tait, an Internet Culture journalist from the UK, to request an interview with us, and we happily accepted! Here is an edited version of the article that just shows all of the parts that mention us, but, you should definitely check out the original article here! Also, Kelly and Aoki refer to two other Kid ASMRtist, Life with Mak and ASMR Toddler. The article is also being published in the March/April edition of the print edition of WIRED magazine!

The website for ASMRtist United looks remarkably like it was created by a child – which it was. Founded in August 2017 by 14-year-old Jacob Daniel, the “company” offers advice to ASMRtists under the age of 18. There is a guide on how to filter sexual comments, advice on coping with cyberbullying and a post entitled “How do I stop my school from finding my channel?”.

“There a lot of young ASMRtists and I try to tell them, let your parents know,” says Daniel, who has 24,000 subscribers on his channel JacobJacob15. Jacob looks out for other ASMRtists (he also reported the channel of the young girl licking lollipops) and offers help to young YouTubers.

“Someone told one of our members, ‘Oh, I have your address, I’m going to give it to a bunch of paedophiles,’” Daniel says. “This member called me crying and sobbing and I felt so horrible.” The child told his parents about the threat and gave up making videos.

“I know I’m only 14,” Daniel says, “but we have strict, strict rules. If we get a report on anything, we report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. We have a sheet of all the contacts… I’ve been on YouTube since I was about five. I’ve got a lot of hate comments so I know how to handle everything.”

Daniel’s channel is full of disclaimers. Under all of his videos are the words “Account Monitored and Managed by Parents”, which he says he wrote to avoid hate comments.

“He does things with the computer and editing that I know nothing of,” says Daniel’s 53-year-old mother, Parker Prunkl, with a toothless grin. “I know Microsoft Word and Excel but his editing… I think he’ll grow up into the film industry.”

Although Prunkl is proud of her son and helps him film videos and buy props, Daniel still seems very much in charge. When I first emailed Prunkl to set up an interview with her son, she was polite and excited. Daniel later confessed he was actually the one who responded to my email.

Jacob Daniel is clearly a savvy child – although excitable and eccentric, he talks soberly about safety on YouTube, clapping his hands as he tells children to “be, be safe”. He tells kids to use fake names, access their email with VPNs, and avoid making custom Skype calls with viewers. For all his intelligence, however, Daniel is still a child. He and Prunkl show off a series of wigs they play with at home – he dons a purple one with red horns; Prunkl shows me her doll. They talk excitedly about the pranks they play on the public, wearing the wigs to order food in take-away shops.

“I didn’t know he was gonna have a channel this big, I thought it was a phase or a little bit of a hobby,” Prunkl says. “This is a whole new world to me, the ASMR thing – to tell you the truth I didn’t know what it was and he kept explaining it to me until I figured it out.”

Daniel and Prunkl might have it figured out but, like Makenna Kelly, they still experience troubling comments. An older man sends Daniel letters and once drove past him on the street and shouted at him. Prunkl describes the man as “fixated”.

“In one letter he made a stylised JacobJacob15 ASMR logo and I looked a bit closer and I found out he took my channel name and basically put it on a swastika,” Daniel says. “And he said he was sending me a motivational armband. Now I know a lot about history, and I know who had motivational armbands.”

Daniel and Prunkl keep a folder full of this man’s transgressions and have notified the local police. “Sometimes it scares me,” Daniel confesses, quieter now. “It does scare me that this guy could be anywhere.” Similarly, Makenna Kelly fears that kids at her bus stop will follow her home and leak her address online. “I just go down to the clubhouse and wait ten minutes just to make sure nobody knows where I live.”

For these families, this is just another part of YouTube fame. “Him doing these videos, he’s putting himself out there. You’re gonna expect some people to do things if you’re putting yourself out there,” says Prunkl, “no different from a singer or a movie star.”

Mockery is a problem for any child in the limelight – one of Jacob Daniel’s fellow ASMRtist United founders quit YouTube after being picked on at school.



I Wonder what happens in an ASMRtist United video call?

Have you ever been in bed and thought “I Wonder what happens in an ASMRtist United video call?” And you’ve probably thought it goes something like this.

Jacob: OK, everyone ready?

Rasmus: Ready!

Evan: Ready!

Clout: Wait what? Sorry I Was playing Ping Pong and uh something happened to the ta…. (Its an inside joke) Yeah ready!

Jacob: Ok on 1, 2, 3 TINGLES!

Evan: Breattttthhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Clout: Skeptical, Skeptical, Skeptical

Rasmus: *Tapping on Ikea Furniture*

Well not really, We don’t tingle each other to sleep, Its the exact opposite of that!

Basically, We look up each other, makes memes of each other, go through our Twitters or Instagram’s, Talk about NiteFort, Or Fortnite, or whatever Games you whipper snappers are playing.

And, Luckily during a late-night 2 in the frickin’ morning Video Call, Rasmus from ASMR Friends accidentally had a screen recorder recording the call.

And, It was then edited and posted to YouTube for you to enjoy!

So Enjoy!
