It's closer to a marketing ploy controlled by Titanic Sinclair.
I actually looked into the whole "Poppy" thing and watched her videos since last I posted, and I'd say this is correct. Poppy has already been shown acting "normal", and despite Titanic's knowledge in psychology, there are cracks in the act, such as videos aimed at selling stuff, asking people to comment things to exploit the algorithm, having people send them things via PO box, all the common YouTuber stuff. Titanic's own Youtube personality has even changed accordingly since Poppy gained popularity. They haven't done anything I'd frown upon though, nothing scummy or hateful. It's just weird stuff to try and make money from YouTube and popularity, like most channels. I personally don't see a reason to dislike Poppy, so that's my opinion on it.
I'd rather have more insight into Benjamin Bennett(Sitting and smiling guy). Now that's
a guy I can't figure out. Some very strange things have happened lately in one or two of his videos.

Some kind of ad revenue scheme or not, there are most definitely better ways to go about making money than sitting like that. I wish I knew the why.
