Featured Episode


Verbalase's $50K Hazbin Hotel AMV, also known as Verbalase's $50,000 Charlie Morningstar Video, is an animated music video (AMV) supposedly commissioned by YouTube creator Verbalase, known for his Cartoon Beatbox Battles videos. The video features an animated version of himself being chased by an infatuated Charlie, the main character of the animated series Hazbin Hotel. The video began attracting attention in mid-January 2024 after being reposted on X / Twitter as claims that the video cost nearly $50,000 to produce spread online and also resulted in the decline of his Cartoon Beatbox Battle YouTube channel.


On January 11th, 2018, the band Synapson posted an official music video for their song "Hideaway" featuring Holly to YouTube.[1] The video showed a blonde woman kissing a restaurant full of people, old and young, men and women, after being rejected by a man. The video gathered over 1.5 million views in six years (seen below) and was later used in the Hazbin Hotel AMV.

The video, titled "Chase – Hide Away (Verbalase AMV)" was reposted on YouTube[2] by user HydroHater99 on September 6th, 2023. The video's original upload date is unknown, but it is believed to have been posted on a channel belonging to Steven Chase, who is credited as the director. It amassed a total of 62,000 views before being blocked under copyright grounds in January 2024.


An early mention of the AMV on X[3] was user @SFGTgames, as seen in a post from January 9th, 2024 (seen below).

X[4] / Twitter user @thestartofluck brought attention to the video on January 11th, 2024, purportedly detailing how the video first made the rounds on various Discord channels (seen below). In five days, the tweet received over 524,000 views, 4,800 likes and 1,000 retweets.

thestartofluck @thestartofluck. Jan 11 Well, he told us in his official server (im pretty sure a few months later) that there was a "special project" that he had made; a project involving him in the Hazbin Hotel universe. A former friend of mine, Hydro Animates (creator of HYB, a very controversial fan-series) had- Q3 ılı 100K 12 thestartofluck @thestartofluck • Jan 11 -shown me some screenshots of it before the music video would even be on YOUTUBE! Nobody really had any idea what the hell it was about, not even me or my friend, but all we knew was that it cost a LOT.

He told us costed him roughly $50,000 and that it was "too mature" for him to post on his channel. Apparently, he said he made it cause the music video for the- 92 16 534 ili 94K □ ↑ 12 -song was WAY too disgusting; having the woman singing making out with old people and even CHILDREN. So, he made his own version. All we knew back then was that it was a music video animation of a song he didn't make, it was Hazbin Hotel related, and it's somewhere on YouTube. 94 ₁98K 口企 ₁96K 515 529 口企 thestartofluck @thestartofluck.

The post also shows screenshots of Verbalase supposedly discussing a "side project" that cost him nearly $50,000, which many presumed was referring to the Hazbin Hotel AMV (seen below). He talks about the song "Hideaway" and how he did not like its original music video, as well as his plans to post the video to a separate channel in the future.[5]

Verbalase's Response

On January 20th, 2024, Verbalase released a video on his YouTube[11] channel Verbal Ase, titled "Addressing Things," in which he discusses the virality surrounding the Hazbin Hotel AMV (shown below).

In the video, Verbalase thanked his audience and the support he received from fans amid "slander, defamation and allegations," while also acknowledging the impact of his past statements and apologizing for any hurt caused by his opinions. He then discussed the Hazbin Hotel video and noted that the project originally started in 2021 and was intended for a separate YouTube channel centered around a more mature and older audience. When it was finished in 2022, he made this separate channel, uploaded the video and marked it for 18+ viewers, but later deleted it to focus on other content.

After this, he stated that the Hazbin Hotel AMV was later downloaded and reuploaded without his consent, eventually making it public on his birthday and tagging him in it. Toward the end, Verbalase reassured viewers that his main content, including cartoon beatbox battles and puppet beatbox battles, would continue, concluding with him expressing love for his audience and a commitment to learning from his mistakes.

The response video received over 152,000 views, 9,000 likes and 3,000 comments in two days.
