Tear Jerker / The Philip DeFranco Show

Go To

  • Phil's life story about how he got to where he is today. It includes things like his parents divorcing, his mom's boyfriend trying to murder them both, finding out about his PKD, and other terrible things.
  • Phil's reporting of the death of Christina Grimmie. He looks downtrodden throughout the whole video, for obvious reasons.
    I hate this. I hate this more than most any story I've had to cover in the past year. Someone who gave themselves to people, and had so much more to offer, taken away in their prime at such a young age.

  • His videos covering family "prank" channel DaddyOFive. To say the least, let's just say the footage shown in the parents in the videos pretty much are real-life Abusive Parents and are very hard to watch. Especially given that Phil was raised in similar conditions.

How well does it match the trope?
