Most of us watch YouTube and YouTubers pretty regularly, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t times we’re gritting our teeth to get through it. Most of them, and their videos, have at least a few annoying habits that can be tough to stomach.
If you’re not sure exactly what I mean, these 13 Redditors are ready to offer up some examples.
13. The recipe ones are the worrrst.
“I have my Grandma’s recipe for these amazing biscuits but first lets talk about this history of flour…”
12. You start to wonder what you’re even watching.
When they sprinkle like 30 ads into a 10 minute video.
11. Not everyone is a storyteller.
“Story time” where the most banal experience is made into a 15 minute drama of nothing.
10. And we’re all the victims.
Create videos that are 10 minutes and 2 seconds long that could have been done in 3, but YouTube has a minimum length for ad revenue/it’s better for the algorithm or something.
9. Someone has their panties in a twist.
Title something like “MAJOR INFO DROPS” and it’s someone speculating on what info “might” be released on a given topic. It’s a straight up lie and your channel deserves to be banned.
8. So annoying, am I right?
Make way more money than me.
“Guys please buy my merch YouTube’s ad revenue is really not enough to keep living off of… anyways check out the new $10k wrap they put on my 2020 Lambo AventadoOOORRRRR” *cue dubstep*
7. You do not have a journalism degree ok.
When their commentary sounds like a f%cking news channel. Just talk normal yo
6. The emojis, even!
(Gone wrong!!)😯🤢🤮😞(!gone sexual!)🥰🤩😛🤪(scary!!)😲😰😱
Yeah, its just annoying click bait
5. Disingenuous 101.
When they spends ages apologising or just talking shite for ages before getting on with the video. ‘Oh my God, sorry if my hair looks weird you guys, I tried this new shampoo and I know my voice sounds weird you guys I had a cold, like 10 days ago, and excuse the lighting, the clouds keep moving so the lighting is changing!
Anyway without further ado, lets get on with the video!’ ~a motorbike drives past~ ‘Could you not, I’m filming a video! Rude! Anyway sorry about that you guys…’
4. They know how to scare you.
when they say subscribe or a clown will be under your covers at 4 am
3. No one can get that excited about everything.
Any of them that act unnaturally super excited about everything. I follow those who seem to at least be a version of their normal self.
2. That’s how they getcha.
Putting an attractive semi naked female in the thumbnail who has nothing to do with the video
1. The caps are necessary.
