One of the longest-running gaming channels on YouTube, Super Best Friends, is coming to an end after nine years on the platform. Sadly, and a little ironically, the channel is ending because two of its members, Matt and Pat, are no longer friends with each other. Which, as heartbreaking as that may sound, is actually one of the leading reasons successful group channels end up stopping. There’s a long history of that happening from The Creatures to The Completionist, with every situation being different. But it usually comes down to the business side of things hurting the friendships that are in place when everything was formed.
Woolie made the video along with the others in edited together clips explaining the situation and assuring fans that the videos would stay so they could enjoy all the content over the years. Hopefully, down the road, whatever their differences are can be patched up and Matt and Pat can go back to being friends with each other. Because life is too short to hold grudges over a YouTube channel. But we don’t expect them to return to making content as a group. If anything, you’ll probably see their channel and Twitter feed promote three new YouTube or Twitch channels for you to enjoy down the road. During all this, a former member of the channel, Liam, who left two years ago, also expressed that this isn’t too surprising and that he also fell out of friendship with Pat. We’re gonna miss watching them!
