1. Who is Pyrocynical?
Pyrocynical (or simply Pyro) is an English commentary YouTuber who was formerly recognized as one of the early adopters of well-known commentary formats, such as colored borders surrounding video clips shown during videos.
Currently, Pyro uploads various types of commentary and analysis videos, especially those featuring trend-related content, on his channel. He occasionally refers to his viewer base as the “Bruh Army,” a satirical jab at PewDiePie‘s fanbase, who were formerly known as the Bro Army. Most of his descriptions would even contain an ASCII drawing of the Brofist, something PewDiePie originally had in his descriptions in the early days of his career.
His YouTube channel is ranked the 812th most subscribed channel on YouTube, and the 195th best comedy channel. The channel now has 4.76 million subs.

Since then, only one other equivalent of a montage parody video was released on his channel titled “SHREK HAS SWAG 2“.

In 2019, Niall’s content is a mix of trending topics, gaming videos, and commentary. He has also begun interacting with others more frequently in skits, the largest being a Reddit video browsing many Despacito memes. However, by 2020, the amount of commentary videos has declined noticeably.

In January 2022, he announced that he created a VODs channel for stream archives.
Niall’s emblematic trait is his ginger-brown, now platinum blonde almost white hair. Which many joked about saying he looks as if he were “a cute little lesbian“.
