See all this strikes me as yet another example of Yanks trying to be somebodies on Youtube. Paid promotion, cringey American accents and Americanisms, overdramaticising, clickbait in title, 'that looks crazy', 'what the fuuuck was that noise', 'we're now gonna attempt to go up these stairs'. The list goes on. I've never understood why people say 'The Proper People' is quality content. I'd take SSI and The Death of Teeside Steel to read instead any day. Or even better, going to explore a steelworks myself, wild thought

Couple of points here.

Yes, the Proper People shoot good content and create pro videos. Not doubt about that.

But it still comes back round to a YouTuber is a YouTuber and they are (1) bringing to a mass audience a hobby that is covert by it's very nature and should be kept underground and (2) trying to make gains, money or otherwise, via something that is a hobby.
