Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures – #StopDolphinPoaching

Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures – #StopDolphinPoaching

– Intro – Gus : There were a couple of somewhat related to news stories that really pissed me off this week. There was that group of people on a beach at Argentina who saw a baby dolphin in the water. So they picked up the baby dolphin and brought it to the beach and they started passing it around to a crowd of people so they could take selfies with it. Fucking rare baby dolphin dies. Burnie : This dolphin thing makes me super sad Gavin : But the thing is still.. Poaching is still way worse than selfies, ’cause more dolphins die of that than getting selfie’d. ‘Eliminate the selfie’ won’t save dolphin lives. Gus : It would’a saved that one! Gavin : One-one dolphin! I mean it’s sad but it’s still.. Burnie : Okay, okay Gavin, you’re right! So, let me give some advice to our podcast listeners… Hey we gotta stop the selfie thing, and all the poaching that we’re all doing. So, if you could, after the podcast, you could just not poach.. Who the fuck do you think is listening to our podcast? Some dude on the fishing boat outside of fucking Tokyo going “Oh man, he really got to me on that one.” If you can tell our audience to stop poaching, they can’t stop poaching because they are not fucking poaching Gavin : I just feel like not many things are getting hurt by that. Our audience on twitter : They’re very sorry about that poaching, Gavin and they’ll stop immediatley Gus : Think about the difference that we just made. Millions of people, are gonna stop poaching dolphins now. Burnie : Gus, we reduced poaching, in our audience, a 100% *Gavin laughs* Gus : We really made a difference today. Burnie : I just got a message from the Rooster Teeth Dallas Fort Worth Community group, they have cancelled their seal clubbing event. *Gavin laughs like mental* Burnie : Thanks to Gavin and his message. So, good for you guys. Sorry to ruin all your fun, baby seals deserve to live too. – Rooster Teeth Animation outro –

  2. GhostAnime says:

    Gavin has even touched the heart of Megamind.  He well never wear custom baby seal leather boots again.

  3. GlaciusTS says:

    In defense of seal hunters, they aren't poaching the seals, the seals aren't babies, and they don't use clubs. Not anymore anyway.

    Man, I used to like Rooster teeth, but then they told me to stop poaching dolphins. You can't tell me what to do.

  14. Inverted Games says:

    seriously though, 8.6 million subs, odds are there's a few of them who have poached a dolphin or two…

    Hell, I could be poaching a dolphin right now, as I'm writing this. You don't know.

  15. Fire Fox says:


  16. Derpaderpy says:

    The more dolphins there are, the more we can give handjobs to.

    The absolute best part about this episode is the fact that my brothers username on steam is sealclubber.

  22. MichealJ99 Gaming says:

    I find it ironic because dolphins need oxygen to survive and the same thing for whales

  23. scitechian says:

    I like how the Seal Clubbing Event's participants were multi-cultural at least.

  31. Gopherfan18 says:

    dolphins breathe air though…..they have lungs not gills

  32. Wertsir says:

    Gavin's got a point.

    What's the likelihood of one of their viewers being a dolphin poacher vs killing a dolphin with a selfie.

    If we accept that more dolphins die via poaching we have to accept the inevitability that it is more likely that a dolphin poacher is watching than a future selfie-killer. (assuming the absence of other influencing factors).

    And since Poaching is a more sustained effort (compared to the one time nature of selfie-killing) even viewers who are not poachers themselves could have an influence on it, via supporting more harsh penalties and more strict laws against poaching.

    So yah, Gavin is on point here, it's common social-media hype bullshit distracting from the big issues because the small ones are more emotionally impacting.

  33. TheGameBoss980 says:

  63. Tiger Vigesaa says:

    But dolphins can breath out of water how did it die

  64. Rachel Hollars says:

    Actually the baby dolphin was already dead. It was beached and died and people started passing it around. However they still got in trouble because handling rare animals, dead or alive, is still highly illegal.

  65. Robert Wallischek says:

    I feel like I should go out and poach a dolphin out of spite.

  66. Elijah Aitaok says:

    baby seals are good to eat though

  82. QuantumWill says:

    I love how on the graph of poaching percentage in the Rooster Teeth community, at one point it was actually a hundred percent.

  83. Vtel 'Zolam says:


  84. shownsnow says:

    But if you could eliminate poaching your selfies, poaching would save more lives

  85. zeta prime says:

    Gavin I wouldn't even poach you

  86. Nmotsch idontwannagivemyrealname says:

    As a Canadian, Barbara is very sad that the seal clubbing is canceled.

  87. joel andersen says:

    Gavin is an idiot

  88. Rory Mayfield says:

    F*** dolphins! Bunch of piece-of-s*** rapist a-holes! No, seriously, look up what happens to a female dolphin that won't submit to mating in the wild. If people did that, it would be a world news cluster-f***. Granted, I don't want dolphins to go extinct, because I'm not a fan of any form of eradication. But seriously, I HATE male dolphins.

  89. Kaiden FortniteMaster says:

    I wish I were there I would ask to take a selfie with the dolphins next then I would be like SIKE and throw it back in the water

  97. Althric says:

    The poacher's boat just being called the SS DOLPHIN KILLER as well as some of the twitter names at 1:09 are hysterical

  98. HerronARF says:

    Gavin if you cut the selfeing selfie deaths will go done 100%

  99. The Unholy Smirk says:

    Burnie kinda called the RT community dumbasses, if you think about it.
