- "I only upload high quality video game rips."
SiIvaGunner[note 1] (typically /ˈsiːvəɡʌnər/), originally known as (and still referred to as such on Bandcamp) GiIvaSunner[note 1] (typically /ˈgiːvəsʌnər/), is a collaborative YouTube channel made as a parody account to GilvaSunner, a video game music ripping channel.
Under a character of the same name, SiIvaGunner's videos consist of bait and switch videos, with jokes, memes or parodies of video game music.
On September 30, 2016, the SiIvaGunner channel has announced that it will stop uploading rips, but since then has continued uploading regularly, even celebrating the anniversary of the channel on January 9th.
SiIvaGunner has the same avatar as GiLvaSunner (glitch art of Antinous), except it has an eyepatch from the Metal Gear series.
He rarely comments on the videos, saying sometimes "I only upload high quality video game rips." to people who insinuated that a rip was low quality. The description of his videos is "Please read the channel description".
When he releases an album, he always complains that the names of his high quality rips don't match the names of the tracks.
GiIvaSunner Era (January - April 2016) Edit
The original channel, GiIvaSunner, was made on January 9th, 2016 by Chaze the Chat. He wanted to do an impostor channel where even if the content is not what was expected, it's something enjoyable. The first high quality rip he made and uploaded was a Pokémon rip.
Near the end of February, there were a few rips, and the channel started getting noticed by well-known individuals such as cobanermani456 and Temmie Chang on Twitter. The channel started getting a steady flow of subscribers on February 20. On February 21 it surpassed one hundred subscribers, then surpassed five hundred on February 27. The subscriber flow rose drastically on February 28, with over 2,400 users subscribing that day (bringing the channel to over 3,000 subs). From February 28 to March 13, the channel gained subscribers in the thousands almost every day (the record was set on March 8, with over 4,000 users subscribing that day), later the flow subsided to hundreds every day. The channel surpassed ten thousand subscribers on March 4, twenty thousand on March 10, and finally thirty thousand on March 24. By April 6, 2016, GiIvaSunner had 35,857 subscribers, and his videos had over ten million views total.
The GiIvaSunner team made an album: GilvaSunner's Highest Quality Video Game Rips: Volume 1. On April 1st, they uploaded normal rips as an April Fool's Day joke. They also made a fake second album that day: GilvaSunner's Highest Quality Video Game Rips: Volume 2 (announcement.wmv).
The GiIvaSunner channel was taken down on April 6th. Reacting to this, the real GiLvaSunner stated that he was okay with the channel. The channel GiLvaSunner was a tribute to the original channel SiLvaGunner. The GiIvaSunner team used the name SiIvaGunner for a new channel. Tainic had created a channel named SiIvaGunner a month before so the GiIvaSunner team moved on to his channel.
SiIvaGunner Era (April 2016 - June 2016) Edit
|This article is too smol.|
The GilvaSunner channel team kept making rips on the channel SilvaGunner. The channel is still up to this day. The channel then gained back all of its previous followers.
The High-Quality Reboot (June 2016 - July 2016)Edit
During the Reboot arc, SiIvaGunner "crashed" and was approached by The Voice Inside Your Head (a.k.a. "The Gay Mexican Ass in My Ass"), who wanted to reboot SiIvaGunner with new memes to replace the existing ones. Chad Warden, who had previously tried to prevent the dislike-bombing of memes such as Snow halation, agreed to the Reboot. Many memes and rips were replaced with alternate versions; "GO MY WAY!!" replaced "Snow halation", Howie scream replaced Loud Nigra, and other cartoon families (the Simpsons, the Jetsons, Family Guy) replaced "Meet the Flintstones". In the end, however, Chad Warden realized the power that "Snow halation" represented, and sacrificed himself to defeat the Voice. However, this was not the end...
The Christmas Comeback Crisis (December 2016 – present)Edit
- Main article: The SiIvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis
Chad Warden's sacrificed seemed to have ended the Voice, however he was resurrected by Wood Man as a Figment. The Voice took over Grandoise City and began purging all anime, the true nature of his quest for world domination. Despite his best efforts, however, Smol Nozomi was able to escape, thus beginning The SiIvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis.
During this time, the memes of the channel reverted to their pre-Reboot state, however the channel's description was changed. In addition, GO MY WAY!! and other memes introduced by the Voice remained on the channel.
