* NeverLiveItDown: His attempts to be deliberately offensive to spite a culture reliant on safe spaces and trigger warnings in what he describes as the cultural pendulum swinging too far to the left have gotten him in ''deep'' controversy, with his dismissal of what he said on the grounds of it being satirical and separate from his actual beliefs not quelling the backlash much.

While he still has a steady following, his chances of working with a company again seem slim.


* InternetBackdraft: In his efforts to fight against what sees as the pendulum of modern culture swinging too far to the left--he cited a specific distaste for reliance on safe spaces and trigger warnings--Nick seems to intentionally invoke this trope by making videos in which he says deliberately controversial, if not bigoted, things that he doesn't actually agree with just to stir the pot. They do work well--[[GoneHorriblyRight so well, in fact, that the subsequent outrage his words incite seem to play the trope very straight]].

* NeverLiveItDown: In January 2015, Nick decided to share some of his views about feminism with the world, which in turn got him waist-deep in a ''lot'' of controversy and mockery, with [[http://wehuntedthemammoth.com/2015/01/29/trouble-internet-mashup-king-pogo-reveals-himself-to-be-a-misogynistic-douchenozzle/ one website in particular]] calling him a "misogynistic douchenozzle".

* InternetBackdraft: His now deleted video "Why I called my channel Fagottron", caused a massive backlash against him due to him stating that the name came from his hate of gay people, and claiming that he was happy about the Orlando nightclub shooting(which killed 49 gay people.). He later stated that the video was satirical in nature and has since apologized for making it, but this has done little to help things.

** "Adios Amor" can only be described as a driving-all-night type of song; very mellowed out and relaxing, and it's especially enchanting when the additional sonic textures come a good way into the song.
