ACTUALLY HAPPENED was a "story sharing" channel owned by TheSoul Publishing that joined around late May 2018. In mid 2020, all the videos were taken down for an unknown reason.[1]

Why They Sucked

  1. The channel is made by the same creators of 5-Minute Crafts and BRIGHT SIDE, and knowing their reputation, it's always a major red flag.
    • As with BRIGHT SIDE, the channel name is in all caps as if it isn't clickbait enough.
  2. They seem to be telling fake stories instead of getting stories from other people. To prove this, one must examine the videos for any dubious claims. Here are some examples:
    • Sometimes, the characters told things that aren't even real. One example is the video "I Rebelled At School Bans But It Went Too Far". The character claims a school ban on water bottles made the news, but if one were to look it up, nothing related to the story will pop up.
      • Another example of this is in the video "I Was Bullied At School For The Way I Dressed", in which the character claims she has a YouTube channel known as "Alyson Styles" that has thousands of subscribers. However, if one were to look up that channel, they can see that it doesn't exist at all.
    • The characters try way too hard to be hip and current. For example, in the aforementioned "I Rebelled At School Bans But It Went Too Far", the character states that she has "life hacks" to pull a senior prank. They also used Rage Comics memes in some of their videos thumbnails.
    • At the end of the video "I Got Caught For Shoplifting", the character said, "Thank God it's anonymous.".
    • Sometimes, the stories are so ludicrous they don't even seem true at all. An example is a video "My Friends Think I Am Dead", in which the character states that his father got involved in a program which tried to keep them safe.
    • Not to mention, the e-mail address where people can share their stories used to link to the email address of the BRIGHT SIDE. It has been changed later.
  3. They seem to constantly steal ideas from Storybooth, another story sharing channel. For example, Storybooth uploaded a video of a story related to teen pregnancy. A month later, ACTUALLY HAPPENED uploaded a similar video.
  4. Most of the narrator's are unlikeable characters. They are always in the wrong by torturing other people, cheating or betraying others and yet when they are exposed, they try to gain the viewers' sympathy by claiming that "no one understands them". For example:
    • In "My Nerdy Sister Stabbed Me In The Back to Steal My BF", the character Joanne shamelessly "befriended" a boy whom she only wanted to use to do her homework and nothing else and in the end she will ditch. She even texted other other boys to tell them that she only wants to betray him. Her sister was the hero in the story because she exposed her sister to her "boyfriend" which infuriates her and she wants the viewers to feel sympathy for her. Well, Joanne, it's clear to everyone that no one sympathies with sociopaths.
    • In "I Faked Pregnancy to Make My Ex Come Back To Me", the main character shows zero remorse for lying about her pregnancy only to get her boyfriend back who was in an abusive relationship with her. Instead, she asks the viewers to understand her "pain".
    • In "I Faked Pregnancy To Get Good Grades In School", the character Nancy refuses to act normal and wants the viewers' suggestions to do worse things than that.
    • Sometimes, the characters would claim that they did something dishonest just to get their way. An example is a video "My Parents Hated My Boyfriend But He Changed Everything". The character in the video claimed her parents picked her up from school to prevent her from seeing her boyfriend. She claims that she slashed her parents' car's tires just so that she could see her boyfriend.
  5. They also delete comments that tell them they're fake, showing that they can't take criticism (and also proving they're fake).
  6. It seems like a channel just for children to complain about their parents. An example is a video "I Had A Strict Mom But I Stood Up For Myself". The character, Allie, states her mother was strict only for telling her that she's disappointed with her and banning her from watching TV.
  7. One of the videos, "I Broke Up With My GF Because of Potatoes", was stolen from Reddit. They even put the same story in the description.
  8. They seem to be running out of ideas and now their videos are just plain nonsensical, such as "I Met A Witch Who Turned My Life Into A Horror Movie".
  9. Overuse of stereotypes, like in the video "My Stepmother Hated Me So I Had To Move Out", which uses the Wicked Stepmother stereotype from Cinderella.
  10. The animation in the videos was usually poor.
  11. Sometimes the characters say something that doesn't make sense at all. An example is the aforementioned "I Broke Up With My GF because of potatoes", in which the character says, "You know that milestone any man prefers to see far ahead". What is he talking about?
  12. The people behind this channel seem to have a pregnancy fetish because majority of the videos are about teen or child pregnancy.
  13. It spawned other channels with life stories that have no proof that the stories are true at all, except they're even worse.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Their videos can serve as an influence to many people.
  2. Sometimes the animation of their videos is good, like in the video "My Phone Spent 70K and I Never Noticed".
  3. Some of their videos have really good life lessons in them.

Trivia

  • The channel spawned the “ACTUALLY HAPPENED” comment meme.

ACTUALLY HAPPENED

PS: I'll admit it, I used to think ACTUALLY HAPPENED was real, but that was before I discovered Jarvis' video on the channel. And I'm very glad that I did. Not only because they were fake stories making money by manipulating people, but also because from there on, their videos only went from bad, to worse, to astonishingly ludicrous (so much so that, even if I didn't find Jarvis' video, I would've still realized that these videos were fake garbage). And now, it's gone. Like, all the channel's videos are just, gone.
