Vape Nation: The Best or Worst Thing to Ever Happen to Vaping?

What do vapers think about Vape Nation, the satirical YouTube video that blurs the lines between stoner culture and the vape life?


What is vape nation?

If the two words “Vape Nation” mean anything to you, then chances are you have seen that hilarious video from YouTube. If you haven’t, take a moment to catch up with the rest of us….

The video features a wacky stoner who sets out to his “local vape shop” to rip the fattest cloud…

So lit

Let’s get our facts straight. Obviously he doesn’t represent vape culture, stoner culture or any culture for that matter. The character depicted by Ethan (H3H3 Productions) is clearly satirical, but do you think Vape Nation gives people the wrong impression of vaping or is it just satire?

Some of my favorite highlights of the video are the parts where he goes to his local vape shop, the reactions from the police officers and his (attempted) “sick vape tricks” in Washington Square Park. Another great part was when the newscaster takes a video from his cell phone.

You call that a vape shop?

Wait a sec, hold up. Let’s take a moment and analyze everything wrong with this “vape shop”.

First of all, it was not even a vape shop, it was a smoke shop that sells vapes. The guy in the store literally pulls the first juice off the shelf and tells him it’s organic, a common tactic used to sell more product to hipsters. Lastly he says you can get 3-4 days of vaping on a Subtank Mini!

I personally own and still use my Subtank Mini and I filled it 3-4 times already this afternoon….

The juice happened to be Churrios by The Milkman, which is actually a pretty good flavor, I’m not sure if it is “organic”. H3H3 soon released a remix titled “Vape Naysh Y’all” which is more proof that you can make anything look cool with a “phat beat” and a little bit of editing magic.

What do you think of Vape Nation? Is it vape propaganda, or just poking some fun at us?
