Okay, I'll be a little more serious than my last post.
Everyone has to start somewhere, and I admire your dedication for this. I'm not Matan, but I have a few pointers.
1. Be more obnoxious! Be louder! Slam your keyboard a few times! If you want to really bring out your inner-RotD, get a sucky microphone so we can hear that beautiful background static that we all miss. See #4 for some extra tips.
2. Get a handheld camera. Matan is (usually) at his best when he's not recording in 1080p60. If you're looking for something that can perfect your awesome videos, get a sucky microphone. (See: #1)
4. Don't say "Uh..." or "Um..." or even be silent at all. Literally say the first thing that comes to mind (
"Daddy! I poopt my pants!"
is a great one.) because silent videos are not always super duper enjoyable. (In all seriousness, maybe write a script first?)

Other tips to consider when doing RotDs:
-If you are going to be loud and obnoxious, make sure there is nobody else around and all the windows are closed. That way, no one can hear you inside or outside (unless you are caught by an installed security camera). If you can't get anyone to move out, try closing all the doors so they won't hear you as much.
-Speak at a normal volume in the introduction and then be insanely loud when the replays begin. This will make the viewer feel prepared for what is coming without being yelled at when the video starts.
