    Not really a reaction video though, now if you'd filmed yourself watching that with the intention of showing you watching it to me, that would be a reaction video

    We'd become the very monster I set out to destroy............ I'm not sure watching kids or anyone else eating foods are the same as 'reacts' videos are they? As soon as you've had a Buglips rebuke you're in the gang

    I hate optimists Someone needs to make a stand, and as I'm the most intelligent, handsome and charming member of our fraternity, it may as well be me

    I like narrow minded, it allows me to concentrate on things that matter When you do, can you video yourself watching it so that I can watch you watching it?

    This is an excellent post in a 'I'm a nice curmudgeon' sort of way. Ignoring the British is like ignoring a good bacon sandwich (and when I say bacon I mean proper British bacon, not that colonial ham stuff), ultimately you'd be having a lot more fun if you didn't! I suppose the thing with these reaction videos is the bandwagon aspect of them, and the amateur dramatics part. So on the one hand you might have a Youtuber who is a Game of Thrones fan who wants to discuss the show and interact with the viewers. On the other hand there are plenty of drama school types who just want to hop on the bandwagon and over-act their way through whatever video they're posting.

    Thank you for this analysis, if I had longer arms I'd give you a wonderful knee rub I live to serve. If you're happy @Sanael , then I'm happy

    I absolutely refute this, I'm a paragon of abject misery and only ever post on this forum after careful consideration of every word. The only thing that escapes absolute seriousness is my grammar.

    I agree with this. Hating bad stuff is a public service. I hadn't realised, I think I used to be better humoured. Can you put me on block? Unboxing videos have a purpose, as do watching videos about baby squirrels or history videos about Great Britain's glorious military victories. Reaction videos surely have no value

  12. This is excellent, I feel like I'm tapping into some raw rage here, the first such display in the thread. Awesome work!

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    I started this thread five and a half years ago. That's sobering

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    12:45am here. Game of Thrones airs in 1 hour and 15 minutes. Eyes starting to ache, feeling sleepy. But do I stay awake and watch it at 2am or endure agony through a day of work tomorrow? Adult decisions
  15. I was going to include this in another thread, but it pains me to such an extent that maybe a new thread is warranted. If you're not aware, there is a category of 'entertainment' on Youtube known as reaction videos. These involve watching somebody else watch an edited version of a TV show or a movie trailer. Recently these videos have taken a more sinister turn as it now seems to be a thing where you can watch someone listening to music. Such is the competition between these reactors that any fad is instantly jumped on by every other reactor. So a recent one was 'black person listens to Bohemian Rhapsody for the first time', and within no time there were dozens of videos of black people listening to Bohemian Rhapsody on Youtube. Two things strike me as unsettling about this, the first is the desperate nature of these reactors and their ceaseless quest to find something to react to which they believe will be popular. The second, is that for these people to consider these videos worth making, there must be plenty of other people out there that have nothing better to do with their time than watch other people watch stuff. Tell me I'm not alone in this
