    Ok so strangely enough, this morning I went to Warby Parker cause I needed new glasses. Actually just got the same exact frames Tyler just got (the Burke). Great minds think alike

    So maybe they do this totally different in the U.S., but for me it's like they mushed all the steps of getting a pair of glasses together. First, you have to get you're eyes checked to see how strong the lenses must be, then you choose which frame you want and then after about a week you can pick it up. You can't just pick a pair of glasses, put it on, buy it and walk away right? RIGHT!?

      It's not reccomended but you can buy basic pre-made glasses at many gas stations and drug stores with basic prescriptions in them but they don't take the details of your rx like pupil distance or astigmatism into account, they're just basic vision correction and long term use can lead to headaches and worsened vision. Also, some eyeglass stores have labs with a stock of pre-cut lenses for basic prescriptions so if your rx power isn't too far out of the ordinary and you're not buying all the bells and whistles they can have your glasses done in less than an hour.

    Wow, another fake RT Life video that's really just an egregious advertisement bait and switch.  Work on your disclosure RT.  This is the type of content you put out on First week to try and get people to sign up?


    I'm already prepared for the swarm of zombies to come mod me down, but hopefully someone will eventually take notice and point out, internally, that this sort of thing is not okay.

      The description of the video clearly states that this video was supported by Warby Parker.  Do you find the wording misleading or did you not read it at all?  Are you specifically opposed to text marking sponsors and only want it specifically stated at the beginning of a video?  It seems like you're just upset about the video in general because I can't see how this is a "bait and switch" as you said.  You stated that "this sort of thing is not okay" but I can't see what specifically is wrong with it.  Could you please be more specific?

      ssjvash MarkNuttFISH Yes, of course, the disclosure needs to be in the video, at the beginning of the video, and it needs to be clear and direct.  In fact, it may even need to be in the thumbnail so people can avoid clicking on a blatant ad.

      I see what you're getting at, but I'm fairly certain that Warby Parker has been a sponsor for RT before. If not, then what's to say that their visit didn't or couldn't have turned into a sponsorship afterwards? Besides, how is throwing the ad on the end of the video that much different than just doing a read in the middle like the podcast, or on the beginning like their other sponsored content?

  • RemyLeBro FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    What has me concerned is that this is an RT LIFE. The earliest episodes felt like organic jackassery. Like it was just stupid stuff happening around the office.


    I know getting an glasses is a legitimate issue people deal with. Hell, maybe they made a video about taking advantage of their sponsorship deal and people are just focusing on the ad bit. I honestly don't know how to feel about this video.


    Do love me some Warby Parker glasses though. #notanad

      RT Life to me was always just a "behind-the-scenes" look at the goings-on at Rooster Teeth. Maybe not necessarily something related to a production, or even a prank or them just goofing off. 

    • Barkleton FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I just kinda wished they showed Tyler getting the eye exam and coming back to get his lenses, like a legit thing.

      Makes it look like those Burnie-type glasses, non-prescription, clear glass for the only reason of being worn as a fashion accessory.
      Which means it looks like it was "lets make an ad with rooster teeth cast for the sake of money, and not a day in the life of RT."

      If Tyler Coe is wearing those glasses in two months or even the next video he's in, then it won't be a bad thing. But if he isn't, well it felt like the whole thing was made around the focus of advertising to us.

      I want complaining about it being an ad. RT's sponsored content has made for some of the funniest moments. All I want is that it's in line with the rest of RT's sponsored stuff. Most other videos have a little line at the start saying "so and so hooked us up with" or "so we teamed up with". That's all I was pointing out. I enjoy any Tyriel video, and this one is no exception.

      @minkis RT's formula for sponsored videos tends to have a line at the start mentioning it's an ad. That's all I'm looking for, to keep the standard they've had. It's incumbent on RT to make their advertising clear. 


      @Arkatox because there are certain regulations that need to be followed when advertising online. All they needed to do was put a little line at the start saying something like "Warby Parker wanted to help Tyler see". That's it. Constructive feedback. That's all this is.
