Because I’ve Never Watched an Evelyn From the Internets Video I Didn’t Love
I just need to take this time to give ALL THE PROPS to Evelyn from the Internets. In case you’re outta the loop, you gotta jump into it because she is everything right about interwebbing, creativity, humor writing and Black girl dopeness.
Evelyn has a YouTube channel where she rants about whatever her heart desires, so you know I already dig that randomness. One day, she’s talking about how she’s held a grudge for 20 years and the next, she’s talking about being Benadryl wasted. She even talked about how she’s never doing a video about her BAE, and you KNOW that is my creed, cuz real Gs gotta move in silence. Now I’m obsessed, because she’s basically my spirit twin. She’s also my African sista, cuz her parents are from Kenya.
In April, she did a 30 videos in 30 days challenge, where she uploaded a new vid every single day. That is when I got tipped off on who she was and I got mad that nobody told me about her before then.
Long story short: Evelyn is the shit. When Beyonce dropped the LEMONADE saga, she made a video about it that made me snort from laughing so hard. Well, three weeks later, Bey ends up playing her video at one of her concerts, and Evelyn’s reaction video is the best thing since sliced bagels.
YOOOOO!!! LMAOOOO! That inhaler is the real MVP. But for real. Who wouldn’t be laid out at the altar when Queen Bey gives you THE shoutout?
Basically, she’s consistently hilarious and she infuses nerd-dom into her work too. Smart, funny and just… dope. You gotta get familiar. You’re gonna go on her YouTube channel and fall into the black hole of her videos and emerge hours later, having fallen in love with her because she’s like if your conscience got smart and started having conversations with you.
My new goal is to meet her. Her latest video is about how everyone is now in love with Black Panther, and being from Wakanda (basically Africa) is cool now. When I tell you the entire thing made me HOWL like a drunken wolf? Chile! Just watch:
So here’s to YOU, Evelyn. With your brilliant, chill-deficient, awesome self. Amazing women: may we know them, retweet them and watch their videos on the internet.
Check out her YouTube channel, join her Facebook fanpage and follow her on Twitter. You just met the new bestie in your head.
I adore her! Hilarious truth-tellers are my (old white lady) jam.
Thank you! I love her. I love when she calls online friends “internet cousins” ???? She deserves to be recognized. I can watch her all day!
I fell into that abyss in April during her VEDA, and now have successfully watched every video on her channel, some twice, lol. Evelyn is just dope.
I need both of you to come to my family gatherings… There will be rice of all types
I think you both are 2 of the most brilliant people on the internets 🙂
Evelyn fittin’ to get me fired from work. Now I can’t do anything else.
whoever said black women don’t support each other should take several seats!!!!! …I love how you all support each other and love on each other…..and not denying your Africaness either! Just wonderful! I am Nigerian of a different generation from you both but totally enjoy whatever you both bring to the table…or should I say internets…lol…Keep up the good work and keep the African flag flying (ooopssss….Africa is not a country….lol)
I JUST found her with the whole Beyonce thing and I am beyond smitten. Love her! Love the two of you!
First, let me say how much I love this site! Salute! I read it regularly but I’m always apprehensive about posting stuff because you know how the innawebs can be but I digress. I had to scroll down today just so I could say how much I love Evelyn from the Internets too! In fact, I was just re-watching some older vids on her channel last night. Chile, when I tell you that Evelyn makes me CACKLE, I mean that! She and I go together! lol Her irreverent take on pop culture and just life in general give me great joy. I wish you guys all the success in the world.
i’m so thankful i found her. the fully on ugly laughter that escapes from my mouth every time i watch a video is the same kind of ugly laughter that you bring me, Luvvster.
and that wakanda video is everything i needed in this life of sin. because dimes were dropped so sweetly.
…. doesn’t hurt that she and my mommy have the same name. 🙂
I love her… I’ve been her internet cousin for quite a while.
I too discovered her because of her Lemonade video…lol. But that response had me cackling on public transportation (the city bus), so loud and so hard. I was laugh-crying. Check out ceeceedotcom too, she’s pretty funny. BLACK GIRL MAGIC IS AWESOME!!!
Evelyn is the Truth! my Kenyan Sista from another mista! Love the both of you!
so funny i went to the LA stop and saw all the youtube videos she played and had no clue who any of them were so its glad to put a name to a face and have more youtube content to watch
Never heard of her. Went over because of your recommendation, and have subscribed to her
Sorry Cuz. I thought you were UP on Evezy my breezy. Matter of fact, I thought you were related. That woman is crazy out here on these interwebs. My favorite video is “Knuck if you Buck”. PSA: watch it in the bathroom. Her descriptions of a cross-cultural college party will make you wet yourself. Her reckless hilarity is not for the weak of sphincter. Between the two of you, I stay howling in my depends.
Her Bae video took me there! I’ve watched it repeatedly AND I will repeat lines randomly during my day ????
You can meet her at #BlogHer16; she’s speaking too.
The two of you should team up. I love you both.
Evelyn is everything! I watch and rewatch her videos all the time. Between the two of you, I gets my life.
i don’t know when or how I stumbled onto her but it was a little before her 30 videos in 30 days. She is hilarious!
Haha yes, yes, yes!! So much love for Evelyn! Literally the reason why I decided to do the 30 videos in April thing too! #inspirational 😀
I absolutely love Evelyn from the Internets!
This is why I love you Luvvie. Always dropping presents????????????????
Loving how Africans are doing it big in America????????????????????????????????
She is dope indeed. I love ALL of her videos and just adore her sense of humor. I dont think she realizes how many people she has touched with her videos.
I started with one video and now I have watched every, single one. Both of yall are my “internet cousins”!!
I was watching Evelyn’s videos because of her hair tips. She is one of a handful that has my hair type and did a lot of creative things to her hair.
Then she tried something new, daily vlog for the month of April, and had me giggling, and lol. I started to wonder why she wasn’t writing for a show or creating her own show.
Hope more doors for her are kicked wide open.
I was introduced to Evelyn from the internets from NaturallyCurly.com years ago and it was and is a godsend. #GetYoKnowledge&YoLaughs
Evelyn is by far my favorite YouTuber and i must I agree there is not one video of hers that I don’t like.
