Meeting with the BBC to talk about TV…


Finally fixing my car. “To be efficient, you need a… you need a
plan.” Now, what you don’t want to do, is do what
this guy does and he comes across in his vlogs as if he loves getting up in the morning. MAN: Hold on a sec! You need a plan. To have a solid and efficient day where you
get stuff done, you need a plan. Now, it would be all and well and good, it
would be all well and good if I could, if I could stay in bed today. I’d love to do that but, then again, I’ve
got a daily vlog to shoot and I’ve also got two meetings. I need, I need to plan. ALEX: Hello. WOMAN: Hello Alex. Are you alright? ALEX: Yeah, you? Having a plan makes you efficient because
it lays out what you’re doing, it lays out the times that you’re doing it and then, if
you’ve got anything else that you need to do, like little miscellaneous jobs or a YouTube
video to watch, you can fill in the gaps. JED:ALEX: You need a plan to
be efficient. First meeting of the day over and done with. Now on to the fun stuff! Right, I’m off, I’ll see you in a bit. Get to work Jed – you’re not working, you
should be working! JED: Could you not steal my bag please? ALEX: You’ve left your bag in my car! JED: No I haven’t. ALEX: I’m in a rush!ALEX: Leave!“Way too big for my boots… Kick up the youth.” “Woah, woah – tonight we shake the Earth. Everybody blow!” “Don’t you open up that window.” “Huh, huh, huh!” “Wake me up all night…” “I know you want to love…” “Moving, grooving, slipping slaaaack…” Ohhhhh – what a banger! “17 and a half year soul…” “Yo, you’re rock and rollie in these videos. You don’t see it when you see him. Ohhhhhh…” “Them men want to send for me.” I’m literally in the middle of nowhere – I’ve
never driven to Manchester before and I’m literally in the middle of absolutely nowhere,
like, I’m literally, I’m back in Vegas! I still haven’t told you guys why I’m going
to Manchester yet. Erm… You’ll find out when I get there. I’ve got some exciting news. Right, so I’m here today at Media city in
Manchester and I have absolutely zero idea where I’m going. I know why I’m here though. At this point, I usually stop, set the camera
up and talk to it but I’m in a rush so I can’t. I’m literally about 45 minutes late for my
meeting. The traffic on the way here was so bad. I need to remember that I am on level 6. Wow! Cor! BBC! In all seriousness, no I’m not joking, I’ve
actually got a meeting today with the BBC.Quick fact – I am absolutely
terrified of lifts and I’m assuming that I’m going to the ground floor. So, yeah, I’ve got a meeting today guys with
the BBC. Not very sure what’s going to happen. More specifically, CBBC. You know, I might be going on, I might be
going on CBBC. So I’m really happy about this. Sweet, meeting all finished. That was absolutely amazing! I’ve got some really cool news for you guys
– I’m actually, like, leaving YouTube and going into TV. So, erm, it’s gonna be absolutely wicked. Look, this is like the BBC headquarters in
Manchester. Like it’s mad – this is where everything is
filmed. I’ve just been in this building here, where
they film, like, all of the kids shows – it’s so funny to actually see it in real life. But now, whilst I am in Manchester, I’m obviously
going to come and see Elliott. OK, I’ve just come out of Cbeebies – little
BBC thing in there. Thank you for having me and I’ll talk to you
guys more about this when I get home because I’m literally stopping doing YouTube and I’m
going into, like, TV, so, like, this YouTube channel is going to die soon – I apologise. ELLIOTT: I’ll do it for you if you want. ALEX: You want to do it Elliott? ELLIOTT: Yeah, yeah. We’ll swap, yeah.ALEX: Right then dude. ELLIOTT: See you later buddy. ALEX: Thanks for looking after me whilst I’ve
been in Manchester. ELLIOTT: That’s alright. ALEX: I’ll, erm, I’ll catch you in the next
one! Guys, It’s literally just started snowing! Like, it’s genuinely snowing right now. I’m going to nip to the office, quick. I may not have quite put the door handle back
on properly when we were locked out the other day – that’s not too – oh my… So, Alex – why the hell have you been to the
BBC and why are you saying that you’re going to be quitting YouTube? You’re scaring the absolute hell out of us! But, I’ve got some really exciting news – like,
really exciting news, other than the fact that my microphone is literally on its, like,
it’s wobbling. The reason that I went to the BBC today is
because we’ve been talking, or it’s been in discussions for quite some time, but I actually
had the meeting today – we were talking about me actually doing a bit of a series about
vlogging – actually, that’s going to be like – it’s actually going to start out being,
actually, on the BBC YouTube channel and then, and then, maybe on iPlayer – I’m not sure
just yet. And it’s all about vlogging and vlogging techniques
and, like, camera equipment and the technical side of the vlogging stuff and it’s gonna
be, like, with the BBC! And I was even talking with them today about,
like, potentially doing, like, a set up series and imagine it being on TV – like pimping
people’s set ups but it being on TV. On TV. Like an actual show. Like there’s – wow! That is why I was in Manchester today at BBC. That’s why! Now, you actually have to have a permit to
film on the BBC grounds – I didn’t have a permit but I still did a little bit… That’s why I didn’t film much though – you
have to get like, a permit. This will make you laugh and you won’t believe
me but I’m not lying. There’s legitimately people on swegways roaming
around the building outside the BBC headquarters making sure that people have filming permits. If you work at the BBC, you can confirm that
– there are literally people on swegways going around checking if people are filming and
if they have a permit or not. Like I’m not even joking – on swegways. Now, the reason that I’m in the office – there’s
no reason for you guys really – I just wanted to come and make sure that Jed left it in
a fairly good condition which is very debatable, Jed. I spent over four and a half hours in the
car today guys. Traffic was manic on the way home and I also
had the absolute pleasure of bringing my girlfriend home with me. She’s now at home – I’ve dropped her off
already. That sounded really sarcastic. I enjoy having her in the car because it’s
really boring by yourself. Actually, I do like my own company and I do
like music but it was enjoyable having her in the car – that wasn’t sarcasm at all. I told you it was snowing! Sweet guys! Made it home, changed into the gym equipment.
Equipment? I mean, erm, just a stupid top. I shouldn’t really do this because I know
that you guys are just going to laugh at me with this on. Oooh – the plan! Yeah guys, I want to let you know
that I’m super, super happy that I’ve put this thing together earlier in the video. I really do just hope that it showed across
that, like, having a plan makes thing so much easier. And I just like having a plan anyway because,
like, you can go through the day knowing that you’ve ticked everything off on the plan and
there’s nothing more to do. Like, you’re not thinking: Have I forgotten
something? And I hate having thatI hate
having a weight on my mind of me thinking to myself: Have I forgotten to do something? If you set yourself a list – do it the night
before like I did – you can start the day and finish the day knowing that you’ve done
absolutely everything you needed to do. That’s to keep Alexa stuck down in the car. So now, with a bit of luck, if we stick Alexa
down just there, she should stay put. Brilliant! Sweet guys! Session all finished up in the gym. Not going to lie to you – that was ridicuously
hard – like, that was terrible – I feel absolutely dead after that. Obviously, going to the BBC has been, like,
a massive deal for me and I’ve been, you know, I’ve been driving for like four and a half
hours today and… But, just bear in mind guys that I couldn’t
have done it without the plan and we executed it perfectly. Right guys, I’m going to go round and give
this to my girlfriend, Maria. Let me show you it because I can now show
you it. I got her this done when I was in London,
erm, the other day. I know that you’re going to say: “Alex, it’s
not valentine’s day yet.” Yes, I know but we’re doing early valentine’s
day because I’m probably not going to be with her when it’s actual valentine’s day because
she goes to university in Manchester. We thought that we’d do it a little bit earlier
so I’ve just, err, yeah, you know. Typical stuff – I’m going to go around and
give it to her guys. Anyway, my name’s been Alex, you guys have
been awesome – guys, stay awesome and keep smiling – make sure you’re planning – and
I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s vlog. You ready? I love your faces. You’re all amazing. Adios!
