Niche Gamer Shorts Episode 02 – The Pao Trail

This is a satire piece. The views and opinions expressed in this video do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of, and should not be attributed to, Niche Gamer as an organization.

Welcome to Niche Gamer Shorts, an ongoing video series where we lampoon the mainstream games and game culture in a variety of ways.

This episode is in regards to the entire reddit fiasco in which then interim CEO Ellen Pao fired a popular staff Victoria Taylor, and thousands upon thousands of fans rallied while signing a petition to see her replaced as CEO. Although Pao is no longer CEO, we decided to poke a little fun at the entire scenario, through a unique lens.
