There are a lot of YouTubers out there – all offering content as varied as you can imagine. Some weird, some wonderful, some just downright worrying.
But every now and again you stumble across an unexpected corner of the Internet that’s just totally heartwarming, like the account of Portuguese YouTuber Nilson Izaias Papinho.
Silver surfer Nilson started uploading YouTube videos 11 months ago, starting off with the occasional tour around the garden – showing us juicy fruit plucked straight off the tree, or birds chilling on the feeder. But a month ago he switched his content up a little to include something else: a very polite thank you to his subscribers.
In a video captioned ‘agradecendo os comentários dos meus inscritos’, which roughly translates as ‘thank you for the comments from my subscribers’, Nilson showed off a list that he’d handwritten in a notebook.
He’d scribbled down the names of everyone who had subscribed to his channel, and went through them all to say thanks for their support.
A couple of weeks later, he posted another similar video thanking his new ‘amigos e amigas’, and over the next fortnight he continued to do exactly the same – despite the fact his audience was growing day by day as people learned of what he was doing.
