Exploring Trends: Rooster Teeth
By ICX Media - August 12, 2019
Out of the 2027 trends ICX Media collected last month, Rooster Teeth was one of the top gaming trends on YouTube.
Rooster Teeth is a "pioneering media and entertainment company responsible for some of the biggest online series in history, such as the award-winning and longest-running web series, Red vs. Blue." The group is based in Austin, TX and produces animated series, live-action content, podcasts, and video games.
Ranked 4th overall with an ICX trend score of 47.2, Rooster Teeth is a stable trend that generated 243K views, 593 comments and 10K likes on average. Using these values ICX Media has conducted an engagement rate of 4.2%, making Rooster Teeth a highly engaging trend with a mostly male audience. Making up 11.48% of all of the tagged gaming category content we collected this month, we believe Rooster Teeth is an oversaturated trend, which may make it an unfit topic to make content about. Below is a graphic on how the trend compares to others in its category.
