BrawlBRSTMs3 is a YouTube channel where a lot of extended video game music were uploaded. You could probably recognize it by the fact that it didn't have an avatar and a channel banner. Now it does though, since the channel got hijacked a few days ago by the hacker - he changed all recovery options, so the original owner got locked out completely. Now the account is being monetized by the hacker for his personal gain - you can seeY ouTube's verification mark after the channel's name.

So yeah, while the old channel is hacked, the original owners started a new one called SmashDSPs. New channel has 1 hour uploads and over 9000 seconds for final boss themes.
Link to the new channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO1fxtM30sVDlUbwzg3YZpA

As the original owner said, don't support BrawlBRSTMs3 anymore, and don't let the thief enjoy his "victory."

Sad. I used to listen to music in it.

Anyway, now I must boycott BrawlBRSTMs3. (btw nintendo, that is nice opportunity to apply strikes and take that channel down)

**IMPORTANT**: This channel was NOT compromised, rather the official Twitter account for Brawl BRSTMs / Smash Custom Music was hacked and it is being used to redirect traffic to a new channel that the hacker has made. Ads may show on videos due to copyright claims by the relevant copyright owners.

I guess it's a lie from the hacker, right?

It's sad see how the hacker is making a lot of money thanks to the bad YouTube system 3rd part recognition.

However there's something I don't understand... even if the original creator can't access to his own account he's still able to report him to YouTube, everytime someone joins into an account for an unknow IP address it's registered, so he could use it in favor (that without mention the suspicious activity like the sudden change of settings...) The staff may help but... maybe I'm totally wrong I felt like the original creator just gave up and made another channel... Idk really.

The BrawlBRSTMs3 channel will be back in our control soon, thanks to the help and support of everyone that raised awareness of the hijacking. Google and YouTube have done a great job helping get things back in order, once I was reached out to by a worker. We should have the channel back within the week, but we'll place new uploads here until then.
