How to stay hip, cool, and in touch with teens

Topic / Videos

While most normal people spend their free time watching sports and movies, I pretty much spend most of my media consumption time catching up on my 300+ YouTube subscriptions. I love YouTube so much more than traditional media for so many reasons.

One of the channels I subscribe to is Julian Smith who is popular for his comedy sketches that poke fun of popular cultural trends and common life experiences.

Last week as I was watching my YouTube subscriptions, I was surprised to see that he answered a youth worker’s question on his second channel and made an entire video dedicated to it.

The youth worker asked him:

…I’ve started to feel older and out of touch with the teens. Can you recommend anything to get me back in the “cool-zone?”

Here’s Jullian Smith’s response, playing one of his characters as a awkwardly abnormal, but lovable guy.

  • Just brilliant. Love Julian Smith since the Malk days.

  • Oh wow! I LOVED that video … not only was it super informative for anybody in youth ministry, but it’s also super entertaining. I don’t know if I should take that advice to heart or to share it next Wednesday with the kids!

    I definitely foresee punching my pillow when I rise in the morn. Awesome!

    • Keep punching that pillow, Joanne! lol It’s the best any of us can do! :)
