Bobby Douglas Burns (born: January 26, 1997 (1997-01-26) [age 23]), also known as NASTY BOI, is an American YouTuber who is best known for working with the popular channels CinemaSins and Shane Dawson. He never quite fits into a proper category since his content goes through many different phases over time. Significant points were when he did film reviews, where he focused on movies in a more serious manner, genre-mashing trailers to give beloved movies a different feel and video commentaries analyzing YouTube trends.

Version Numbers

Because of all the variation he has, Burns likes to categorize his content based on a version number, such as 1.0, 2.0, and so on. At the moment he's on "Bobby Burns version 6.0", a music project under the name "NASTY BOI" after version 5.0 died in "THE END OF BOBBY BURNS". Some of the other content Burns has produced on his channel include, and are not limited to, movie reviews, short films, analyzing YouTube trends, trailer edits, and so on.

Bobby Burns 5.0

5.0 is a concept in which he explains this in a recent video, titled, "What Is BobbyBurns5.0? (Explaining Myself)". To Burns, version 5.0 is a documentary series documenting the most exciting and interesting point in his life so far.

Movie Reviews

Rather than CinemaSins, his partner, and sibling-channel at the time, Burns' reviews took a more serious look at movies. His reviews often included his personal thoughts and opinions on movies, and ultimately, whether they suck. Focusing on such things as their overall craft, presentation, etc.

How To Make A ____ Film

Burns first appeared on CinemaSins when he made videos for the series "How To Make A ____ Film" where he explains how to make a movie exactly like a particular director. These videos were parodies, and often called out and made fun of the many repeated formulas and techniques that a director would constantly use in their films.

My Thoughts On Movies

For this series, Burns will go and see movies, and shortly afterward make a video sharing his overall opinion/first impression of those movies. 

Does ____ Actually Suck?

In this series, Burns will go through an entire movie and show various clips from it, throughout all three acts. He will dissect and look at the movie to see if it ultimately actually sucks or not.

YouTube Commentary

In Bobby Burns 3.0 Bobby started creating video essay-style commentary about YouTube Culture, taking a topic or personality like The Secret Genius Of Filthy Frank or The Real YouTube Rewind (2016) and analyzing its success, or failure. Bobby Burns 4.0 continued this trend, but inserting his personality more into his videos. This format of video at least doubled his subscriber count and even gained the attention of bigger YouTubers like Shane Dawson.
