"iCarly" Was Better Than Any YouTuber Will Ever Be

"Shoosh yeah!"

This is Carly Shay.

Nickelodeon

Carly hates when people fight, is frequently described as "prissy" and "squeamish," and takes really long showers when she needs to think.

And this is Sam Puckett.

Nickelodeon

Sam has a butter sock (a sock filled with butter that she uses to hit people), has been arrested four times, and has a passion for meat.

They hosted a lil' web show called iCarly.

Nickelodeon

Ever heard of it?

AKA they were basically the OG YouTubers.

And let me tell you, iCarly was iconic.

Nickelodeon

I C O N I C.

Nickelodeon

There were dope special effects.

Nickelodeon

Fantastic costumes.

Nickelodeon

Literal celebrities as special guests.

Nickelodeon

And all around great content.

So obviously iCarly was incredible. But what makes Sam and Carly better than today's YouTubers, you ask?

Nickelodeon

iCarly didn't have all that sponsored content you can't avoid now.

Carly and Sam didn't make music videos on the side to try to ~make it~.

Jake Paul / Via youtube.com

They even had a real, live cameraman...

Nickelodeon

...rather than doing literally nothing and talking directly at a camera they were holding themselves.

Zoella / Via youtube.com

They had random dancing.

Nickelodeon

And most importantly, they had the SOUND EFFECT REMOTE.

Nickelodeon

In conclusion, no YouTuber will ever be better than iCarly because it was just some best friends being funny together and having a grand ol' time.

    I hate quality television and think YouTubers are significantly better than iCarly.
