Can somebody here who knows Spanish explain the whole Mikecrack / FlexVega / Los Compas / Compadretes fandom? I've figured out a bit from what i've seen, but there's practically no information on it in English and even in Spanish there's no real explanation of it, but here's what i figured….
A couple of years ago, some Spanish (as far as i know, most of them are from Spain) guys started making Minecraft videos and streams with the typical commentary, a growing amount of in-jokes etc. and eventually became known as Los Compas / Compadretes. At some point, they started using animated personas, at least 4 of which are furry, the rest appear as very childish looking humans with few really distinct features. Mikecrack, the indescipt yellow dog-like creature seems to be the "leader" of them more or less, though he's often depicted as a pet to the others in fan art.
They also started releasing videos that showed their characters in sitcom style comic situations, sort of like the Flash animations popular in the noughties before the rise of YouTube. In the last two years, their popularity went absolutely viral with Latin American tweens and they started making fan art featuring their own twists, like "Mikecrack.EXE", itself a spinoff from the Sonic.EXE meme from the early 10s, some of which were embraced by the original creators to the point that the line between fan works and "official" works are blurred to a greater extent than any fandom before.
It's comparable to FNAF, and similar in that many "fans" don't even watch their "normal" gameplay videos, but even weirder and now extremely popular with tweens. Unsurprisingly, yiff art eventually appeared, and the creators are at least somewhat aware of this, though i'm unsure if they've intentionally encouraged it or acknowledged it in any way. No doubt a lot of young ones are getting introduced to yaoi and furry via this fandom, and oddly it also seems to be used by gay teens to connect, to the point of hooking up IRL. Just one of the Facebook yaoi groups has 15 000 MEMBERS, most of them under 16 years old.
However even outside of the yiff aspect, the size of the fandom is pretty mind-boggling. It's just like FNAF at its peak, except weirder, even less centered around the original works and impossible for outsiders to understand. It seems like a fascinating example of memes taking their own life outside of the original creators that would make for a really interesting thorough study, but at this point there's not even a Wikipedia article about them. I wonder how many in the furry community are even aware of this fandom at all? Most of it seems strangely removed from furries in general….
They are a group of youtubers that somehow 'allianced' because they shared livestreams together. Their videos are painfully boring to watch and nobody actually rewatches them.
iirc The yellow and blue characters were the typical avatars you take off Google (obvs Jake the dog and Stitch) before deviantart cutified them to monetise the content so they couldn't get copystruck.
From what I've gathered they just do weird freaky haha-ur-gay jokes that moron teens take seriously and 'ship' them and make laughable yaoi of.
Literally doesn't matter the movement.
If you're boring, noone will care.
Humans are incapable of good, only what makes them feel good.
