The man has more than 400,000 subscribers on Youtube. It's great and it's deserved. Obviously, it's not for everyone. The chain of pranks positions itself as 'hardcore' and, to tell the truth, we do not know of an equivalent.

Is the threat real?

The Menace advances towards this poor man who has no other fault than to wear long hair. And he intimidates him, promising imminent aggression. He flirts heavily. He shows an apartment from which suddenly emerges a naked woman. He provokes, in the middle of the street, those who cross his path and, often, the fight is not far away. Sometimes it takes place. To put it bluntly, it seems to have no limits. Therefore, we will not be surprised by his summons to the police station. Especially when he challenges and handcuffs, pretending to be a BAC police officer... However, the man is courteous on a daily basis, well-mannered and concerned about his interlocutor.

No politics, Maxime Alexandrov sticks to pure entertainment. He makes fun of everyone, starting with the members of his community, whom he does not hesitate to call 'cassos'. But the latter easily forgive the one who has never given in the fake (hidden cameras falsified through staging and the use of actors). He improvises inimitable pranks to the delight of his followers because, one thing is certain, his community means a lot to him. It has the value of fuel and engine at the same time. To escape YouTube censorship, he migrated it to his own platform where he offers exclusive videos. Nudity and sometimes extreme violence of the situations make THE MENACE UNCENSORED a one-of-a-kind place.

Pleasure in the trash

We wonder. What makes us thus consent to scandal? Put yourself in the place of The Menace? Impossible. It's too much. We wouldn't dare. No doubt the spectator projects himself rather into the victim. How would I react? It is that the youtubeur has thought of his business. If he goes far, he often does so in an ultimately friendly way, and the sequences of hoax confessions at the end of the videos testify both to the relief of the victims and to the good spirit that they quickly perceive.

Was the one who was able to appreciate, but without imitating them, Jean-Yves Lafesse, Laurent Baffie or François the confusion, already in the germ when he meditated on his project during the first confinement? Most likely. Will it get any worse. Definitely.
