– That’s so cute. – (FBE) We’re actually gonna
have you try this out for yourself. – Oh my gosh, stop. – We’re gonna perform
surgery. We’re cutting his ears off. ♪ (Industrial intro) ♪ – (FBE) Have you ever heard
of something called Squishies? – I mean, I understand
the adjective. I don’t know of a product
called Squishies. – They’re the little fruit
with faces on them. They’re super squishy,
thus the name. – (FBE) So, have you ever
heard of fixing Squishies? – No, what’s there to fix?
You’re only supposed to squish them. – (FBE) Today, we’re gonna
show you a very popular YouTuber named Moriah
Elizabeth, who’s known for her series Squishy Makeovers,
Fixing Your Squishies. Have you ever heard of this?
– Squishy Makeovers? That sounds like some kind
of makeup. – Is this makeup?
Is this a beauty thing now? A beauty trend? – That sounds fun.
That sounds like I’m about to Subscribe. – (Moriah) Hello.
Let’s cut to the chase. Today’s a Squishy makeover.
– Is it crafts? – (Moriah) Last week,
I posted this. – These are the Squishies. – (Moriah) Vote on which ones
you wanted to see. – Oh, they’re stress
reliever things. – (Moriah) Guess who won
the popularity contest with flying colors.
This guy, by far the most requested.
– I love this already. – (Moriah) He’s moments
away from joining– – Oh. – That makes sense.
You break Squishies, ’cause you play with it
too much. – (Moriah) I’m also diagnosing
him right here with acrylic paint disease.
– I never thought about fixing those things. – (Moriah) Also, he has
a little toilet paper stuck to him.
It’s okay. It happens to all of us. I’m gonna spread some
glue on the mutilated ear. – Somebody’s gotta do it. – (Moriah) Memory foam
on there. Secure that on, let it dry,
and once it’s dry, I’m gonna trim down the foam
and try to get it looking as close to the other ear
as I can. – Wow, she’s so creative. – Instead of throwing it away,
she’s actually gonna make something cute out of it. – (Moriah) Don’t get me wrong,
I love koalas. – See, this is one of those things
that watching it, I’m like, “Yeah, makes sense.”
But if I ever tried to do it, I’d [bleep] it up instantly. – (Moriah) So I’m shaving some
marshmallows out of memory foam because this is gonna be
a hot chocolate themed bear. – Oh, that’s creative. – (Moriah) I’m going to paint
the cup with a nice maroonish color. – Oh my God, it’s a mug.
It’s so cute. – (Moriah) The bear is supposed
to represent the actual hot chocolate.
– I like the creative aspect of these videos.
I think it’s fun. I think it’s a great destresser. – (Moriah) This is the moment
when this guy loses his identity as a koala. – No, not the koala. – I’m loving the way she’s
editing the video. Her commentary is great. – (Moriah) It’s not sad
because he’s becoming hot chocolate.
– I like how funny she is with everything, too.
It makes everything always so much better. – (Moriah) I’m just gonna put
a nice, little expression. – She transformed it.
Look at that. – Wow, that’s pretty cool.
That’s creative. – (Moriah) And since this cup
is such a large area, – That’s so cute. – (Moriah) I decided to add
some snowflakes. – I can see a lot of people
following this. – (Moriah) So, here’s
the final Squishy. – That is so cute
and so creative. I probably would have
thrown it away. – That’s actually really cool.
That’s artistic. She’s like this generation’s
version of Bob Ross. – She’s pretty funny.
I’m still confused what’s going on,
but I like it. – Oh my gosh, my life.
I’m watching a video about a makeover
of Squishies. – (Moriah) I’m gonna start
with the costume and I’m just trimming off
some of the bogus nonsense that’s around the seam.
– Hate bogus nonsense. – (Moriah) Bogus nonsense
that’s around the seam. – This is bogus nonsense. – (Moriah) The matte paint
can definitely be applied with a paintbrush.
– I can see my kids getting into this,
’cause they like painting. – (Moriah) It’s pretty thin,
so you do have to do quite a few layers.
– I wanna try one. It looks fun. – (Moriah) I was wondering
whether I should paint the inside of the costume,
but then I was like, “No, that’s insane.
I don’t need to paint the inside.” – Sure, sure.
I like her editing. – (Moriah) I didn’t need
to paint the inside, right? – Right.
She’s funny, too. – (Moriah) So the costume,
I’m painting like the outside of a watermelon
and I’m aware that these aren’t the most accurate colors
of watermelon. – Her voice calms me.
I don’t know, she has a very nice voice. – (Moriah) But, I think if
the goal was to be realistic, we probably wouldn’t be
putting a bear in a bunny costume. – Does this have another
Squishy inside? – (Moriah) So conceptually,
the bear is the inside of the watermelon.
I am gonna change the color, but not dramatically.
It’s still kinda similar to what it was before.
Ah. And I didn’t film–
– This is so wholesome. – (Moriah) Here’s the final result.
– I love it. – (Moriah) The watermelon idea,
I really love. – They’re so cute. – (Moriah) And I also think
he looks just as cute naked as he does inside
his costume. – Oh wow, okay.
He has a little costume. That’s cool. – I think it’s cute.
I like that she’s doing her own take on it.
She’s playing with the colors and creating her own versions
of it. – She’s so bubbly and cute.
Her vibe is just so fun. I love it.
I would even just watch it even though I wouldn’t do it. – (Moriah) I believe it’s
a bear. – Aw, it’s so tiny. – (Moriah) This is one of those
super cheap Squishies that you get in a bag
of 3000 for a dollar. – Well, I hope you don’t spend
more than ten bucks on a Squishy. – (Moriah) The edges
are super messy, holes everywhere,
limbs ripping off, and the design, it’s just
a spray of lime green. – Every time she squishes it,
I just want to do it, too. – (Moriah) This is not the first
bunny costume Squishy that I’ve done.
What? – So many bunny costume
Squishies. – (Moriah) This is the first
yooman being, human being.
– She got a little humor. She got a sense of humor
in her. – (Moriah) Unless you count
the mermaid, but they’re half fish.
I’m adding little hairs coming out of the costume.
– You know what? She’s just good at painting. – Ah, it’s already adorable.
I love it. – (Moriah) Little freckles
just to make it interesting. – They’re cute. – (Moriah) Here’s the before
and after. – It’s so Cartoon Network anime. – (Moriah) It’s a huge improvement
from what it was and I’m quite happy with it.
– Aw, that’s cute. I like her.
I know a lot of kids, they collect them.
It’s like a competition. – These are very wholesome
projects that a lot of kids should be doing
and often times, a lot of stressful adults
that have things going on. It’s cool to have some
little hobby. – It’s fun because everybody
is creative in some way and everybody has some
form of art inside of their brain
and so it’s cool to see them express it in
unique ways that not everybody would think to do
like painting Squishies. – (FBE) So, we are gonna
talk more about this in just a second, but before
we do, now that you’ve seen a few of these
and how it works, we’re actually gonna have you
try this out for yourself. – Oh my gosh, stop.
I’m gonna do so bad, but I’m so excited. – No way.
Oh dude, I’ma kill it. I’m excited. – (FBE) So, we found some
beat up Squishies for you. – What’s up, guys?
Oh my God, this one’s cute. Oh yeah, there we go. – (FBE) So, you’re gonna take
one of these Squishies and give it your very own
makeover. – Oh my goodness.
I do not want that one. This is so hard,
but I might do the unicorn. – I feel like I wanna
do this one. – These ones look a little hard.
Let’s go easy route. I’ll do this one. – (FBE) So, we’ll put a tarp
down in case you make a mess.
– I’m so excited. I love doing crafts.
I’m not good at them, but it’s so much fun. – (FBE) All the materials
are here in front of you, so go ahead and give
this Squishy a makeover. – I’m not crafty.
Ah. I think I’m gonna play
into the peach metaphor though. – I just know Jack Skellington,
so I think I’m just gonna make him.
Hopefully, I don’t screw it up. – I do not like the hair,
so I’m going to dye it black. – I’m thinking about turning
this unicorn into a dog because the white or whatever
reminds me of my dog. – I’m gonna extend his little
nose, I think, and then just kinda turn it into–
there you go. – We’re gonna perform surgery.
We’re cutting his ears off. – We’re gonna cut
the ears off. It’s not a thing about being
cruel or anything like that, it’s just that you want it
to be a round donut. – ♪ (humming) ♪
Oh yeah. Oh yeah, that looks like
a dip cone right there. – I’m gonna start by cutting
this off because sadly, my dog does not have
a unicorn horn. – This is definitely gonna be
a unicorn from hell with two horns. – She makes it look so easy.
I’m so mad. Ooh, it’s coming together. – We’re doing confetti,
so we’re gonna just do here, here. – The important part of painting
a peach is even brush strokes, so you wanna go down,
down, and then we’ll put a little button right there.
Pretty bomb-ass nose, I’m not gonna lie. – Going all over.
This looks like a disaster, but you know what?
I’m making it work. – That girl, she’s clearly
an artist, ’cause she was very detailed.
She knew exactly what she was doing. – Wait, I can use this
for a hat. Has a hat now.
Ah yeah. – Give him some red,
some blue, some green. All the colors of the rainbow. – I’m just putting my nickname
on there, Don Jaun, so everybody knows
this is mine. – Ah, yes.
I’m proud of myself. – And now we gotta add
a sticker for garnish. Ding.
Pretty good. – That looks actually pretty good.
You just never know what you’re gonna get. – I tried to make a cat,
but then you know what? He realized that he was
a seal all along and he’s very happy,
but also angry. – That’s fun.
I should probably do some more painting.
I should paint more often. I’m very proud.
I wanna take it home now. – It just makes everything
look cuter. Look at that.
Isn’t that so much cuter? Okay, started off by turning
my dog into a cat accidentally. – That’s gross.
That looks so cute already. – There you go.
– (FBE) Wow. Look at that.
– This belongs in Lackland, in some kind of museum. – (FBE) So, all the videos
that we showed you today are clips from a series
by YouTuber Moriah Elizabeth called Squishy Makeover:
Fixing Your Squishies. – It was so adorable.
The name, I was so confused but after I watched it,
I’m hooked. – (FBE) So, the first video
we showed you was her most viewed video.
How many views do you think that video had?
– I’m gonna take a wild guess and say a million.
I’m always surprised by these DIY channels.
I would never expect them to have the fan base
that they do. – It has to be 1.7 million.
Squishies are huge. I mean, I see them,
’cause I work at a school and so I see them everywhere. – Probably at ten million,
because it’s silly and we need silliness today.
I didn’t mean to take it back to serious, but people
need a break. – (FBE) Well, that video actually
currently has over 21 million views. – What?
Oh my gosh. I need to start making
Squishies. That’s insane. – [Bleep], that’s crazy.
If you have a good idea, you can make money off of it, man. – That’s like the natural
inclination for a lot of people is to just kind of assume
that it’s that easy, right? But it’s not.
It’s art, so it takes time and stuff like that,
so she definitely deserves those 21 million. – Jesus Christ, that’s so impressive.
Imagine 30 years ago, some girl was just like,
painting her Squishy because she thought it’d be cute
and then she sees her daughter has 21 million people
watching her do it. It’s so crazy. – (FBE) So, one thing that
a lot of fans seem to appreciate about Moriah’s
videos is that she incorporates her personality into them.
– Yes. Well yeah, she’s funny. – (FBE) Her channel is made up
of a lot of DIY content, but she does post other
types of videos such as question times and even
a cooking series. – Okay.
If she has a cooking– I would probably see that too
because she’ll probably make cooking fun. – (FBE) Some people say that
channels like these are intended to be more
for little kids, but this channel also
has a lot of older viewers and utilizes popular YouTube
editing styles and humor, so in your opinion,
who do you think is watching the content
that you saw today, such as the Fixing Your
Squishies series? Does this seem like it would
be the typical DIY audience or maybe more like it’s
for little kids? – I feel like it’s for little kids.
I mean, that’s what I would assume,
but I wouldn’t be surprised if adults are watching it, too.
Her editing skills are fantastic. – Probably a good majority
is little kids, craft time, Disney Jr.
But that’s not saying it’s not viewable for
an older audience. It’s just that is the demographic
that would search it out. – I wanna say it’s just
for little kids, but at this time and era
that we are, our younger generation,
we kind of broaden our horizons with a bunch
of different things, so I honestly think
it’s for anybody. – Probably all ages
because people get into crafts at different times in their lives,
so I would imagine– I’m not surprised that she has
21 million people watching it. – (FBE) All right, so finally,
based on what you’ve seen today, do you think that this is
a channel you’ll continue to check out and
fix those Squishies or should it stay in a box
with all the other broken Squishies?
– I mean, my personal interests aren’t based around
arts and crafts, so it’s not something
I would pursue. – Yeah, I would definitely
watch it. – I don’t really watch DIY stuff.
It’s something I would definitely show my mom. – I’m not gonna be like,
“I gotta follow this. This is crazy.”
I might tell my kids about it and they might be like,
“Ah Dad, thanks for telling us.” – I’m totally gonna go watch
and subscribe. – Definitely, I wanna go
subscribe. I wanna binge watch
her channel. It seems amazing. – I’m gonna go right there
and I’m gonna subscribe. That is not true.
I am lying. – It’s fun.
If you have your friends over, you can play around with them.
You got nothing else to do, why not? – I’m gonna give this channel
a chance just because I think it’s something different.
It’s a break from reality, of all the stressful things
that are going on especially in YouTube,
all the drama and stuff, so it’s kinda nice to see
these channels that are just relaxing. – Thanks for watching this
super squishy episode of Adults React. – Subscribe for new videos
