The copyrighted material that TGV has used without his permission were photos from his Instagram account. In response to the videos being taken down from TGV's channel, TGV tried to...claim Fair Use with YouTube. A channel that monetized, claiming "fair use!" Cheeky bastard.
Meanwhile, according to Gerald, within the time that YouTube had to process the Fair Use claim, they have not allowed the videos to get back on the channel, and so they're unlikely to return there.

Hold the fucking phone... This Gerald guy's a motherfucking limey? For fuck's sakes, don't we have enough goddamn Brits around here??? For one thing, our dental insurance premiums are going to fucking skyrocket!!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Avoid YouTube (hi, Thailand "vacationers"). One "expert" was talking about a quartz Tissot model "which, no doubt, has an inexpensive Ronda quartz movement inside." I rest my case.

He’s a collector. That reduces supply. Means higher prices to the elderly
I’m going to complain to the SJW
Maybe my check for not “willing to work” can cover the cost.
