Why are there so few funny Minetest videos?

I know lots of games have tutorials and play throughs, but for a sandbox game like minetest I feel like we need some humor, some jokes. I don't actually see that many on youtube, and I'm like seriously wondering why we don't have a channel dedicated to lavaing and tnting everything in mineclone 2, or trying to fall through the world or something. I noticed that a lot of the content about video games that gets watched isn't because the game is any good, or even fun, but because fo the silly comments and humor promoted by the youtuber. It has nothing to do with is this actually even good. It doesn't have to be good, it just has to get attention. Attention is good even if it shows everything that is bad.

Minetest attracts DIY'ers and programmers, which generally are not the type to have a good enough artistic touch to make well produced humorous videos. There's may be a couple of people, but there's not a lot.

Its also very hard to get off the ground as a YouTuber, so it the content of Minetest would have to split time with other content most likely since there's no interest in Minetest on its own. Or the person would probably need some other compensation.

On the magic offchance you get a talented, artistic person who has experience with video editing and is devoted enough to Minetest to make videos for fun, you might get something. But I think a lot of stars have to align, and I have my doubts.

I personally fit the first category, but I am not interested enough to make a full Minetest YouTube channel, though I might do a showcase with some other cool open source projects.

You don't just go out and make a funny video, you make one because something funny happened.
Few funny things happen in minetest and some people around here are really uptight. Small wonder there's nothing fun happening.

If you want funny videos perhaps someone should make Realistic Minetest...
