In January 2012, a documentary crew tracked down an internet troll, and began documenting his daily life.
This is his story.
When did your love of trolling begin?
I would say that it began when Youtube rose to fame.
I loved watching videos for hours on end.
But I had a certain fascination for posting negative comments on people's videos.
I would find a video of a cat doing tricks, and I had an urge to write "FAKE AND GAY".
I consider trolling to be a type of art.
I have progressed in my trolling over the years. Instead of comments like "FAKE AND GAY". I'm writing poetry such as...
"I've seen funnier videos on NotFunnyVideos.com"
"I almost laughed at this video, but then I took an arrow to the knee."
I don't think you can teach the art of trolling, it really is something you're born with.
Do you do any trolling outside of the internet?
All the time!
This was taken from a local concert special that I attended.
Fake! Gay! Fake and gay!
I've recently gotten into Craigslist trolling too.
Knock knock knock!
That must be my guy!
Let's get this!
Hi! How are you?
Good, is this where the antique russian nesting dolls are being sold?
AM I BEING FILMED? IS THIS DATELINE NBC? MY WIFE CAN'T KNOW THAT I COLLECT RUSSIAN DOLLS! MY FRIENDS MIGHT SEE THIS!!!
Nope. I was just trolling you.
ARE YOU REALLY SELLING RUSSIAN DOLLS!?
You're sick! You really are sick!
So yeah, I'm trolling all the time.
Aren't you concerned that you'll push someone too far and get hurt in the process?
No way, it's just harmless trolling, if som-
There he is! That's the guy that trolled me!
Hey man! Please!
OW! HEY! WATCH IT! CRAP! THAT HURTS!
HEY! STOP IT!
