Worst Types of YouTube Videos

The Top Ten

Click Bait

YouTube once changed their algorithm to promote videos depending on watch time (basically the more time people watching, the better). It was supposed to stop the crappy "Reply girls," but I cannot believe how much clickbait is out there, and how YouTube is still promoting it. I'm tired of watching the biggest youtubers like Jake Paul and Logan Paul make clickbait videos and make thousands, EVEN MILLIONS doing this. If you're the type of person to use clickbait or misleading things to urge people to click, PLEASE STOP AND FOCUS ON MAKING ORIGINAL CONTENT FOR ONCE.

Obviously the worst. Why does everybody have the urge to click on a video that has a misleading thumbnail?

They are just lying to you so you can watch there half an hour video especially in some of fortnight

Clickbait is everywhere on youtube. Basically, the youtuber who makes the clickbait video just wants views and make money, get subscribers, That's it.


Mundane tasks are funny when sarcastic, Music videos are mostly bad but some can be good (e.G. Starbomb) and Make-up tutorials at the very least have a point. But what is the point of unboxing?

What would you rather do? Feel the satisfaction from opening something yourself, or watching do it? Yeah, I though so.

Is unboxing even a word? Anyway, its boring watching spoiled people getting free things and bragging about it.

The only problems with most unboxing videos is that most videos don't explain what is in the box enough.

Minecraft videos

Seriously, no one wants to watch a boring 15 minute video of someone playing Minecraft, Minecraft isn't even that cool, also the people that make these videos are mostly annoying 9 year olds with terrible audio and ear bleeding voices, who scream every time they die. also why do the people who make these videos think they're so cool? Just because you built an automatic door or something isn't that big of a deal, to all the people who make videos of them playing Call of Duty, Minecraft or any game, no one wants to hear you constantly call yourself a badass, cause anyone can do what you just did, I really wish videos of people playing video games would just disappear from YouTube

Yeah, automatic doors only require very little knowledge and if they find a diamond while mining, earplugs ready

Worse than virus links, death pranks, and bully videos combined. All videos that feature minecrapt at all should be deleted and their makers should be sent to the moon, leaving them to reflect for eternity on how their crimes were sins upon humanity and disgraces to their very souls. Minecraft is responsible for over 20,000 diseases, of which 3,500 are terminal. Minecraft pollutes every part of the internet it touches, and is responsible for over half of today's global warming. Minecraft was responsible for 90% of all crime plots since 1824. And Minecraft players never leave the toilet seat down and drive alone in the carpool lane.

Woah dude calm down
You are the most toxic hater I've ever seen
Even Justin Bieber doesn't deserve so much hate

Nowadays the minecraft youtube e-metropolis is rotten. Youtubers are copying one another and are making unfunny click bait and boring game videos while speaking in their ear-piercing voices. Not to mention the 6-year old wannabe youtubers who scream into their mics every time they die.Why watch someone else play a video game, when you can play it yourself?

Minecraft videos has lots of bad types, like updates, and some spawns made by this rage elixir guy and turns out it’s all fake! Also many players have tried to show off and boast about new updates but they are not even real and it’s annoying. I seriously do not want to spend time just watching the cringe in all of them.


Some people are working hard to learn a song on an instrument and upload a cover or even a tutorial. Others remaster songs themselves and fix bad production. Who does not have talent/time for either can still help a lot of people by making a video with lyrics on screen. The last group of people can get away with wiggling eyebrows and nodding.

These are possibly the most unoriginal and uncreative videos on the site. It's ridiculous how many views and money someone can get just for reacting to a video someone else put time and effort into when reaction videos take no effort at all. They are completely boring and most of the time the person reacting barely does anything! Most of them just laugh or go "oh my god" every 5 seconds. YouTube is getting worse everyday.

All they do is watch videos and steal original content from popular youtubers like Pewdiepie for example. The worst part is, this is what society has come to?! Some reaction channels like Reaction Time or Skyviewray, make a living off of watching videos and occasionally laugh or say something stupid every 2 minutes! More than half of the time they just silently watch videos with a stupid blank expression on their faces!

All these guys do is just sit on their butts and watch a video. The worst part is that they get thousands of views from it. They literally just decide that watching someone watching a viral video is way better than watching it yourself. In fact, most reactionists say things that aren't even funny and sometimes they say absolutely nothing the whole time and just make some weird face expressions on occasions.

Spiderman and Elsa

I understand trolls are sometimes really bad, but surely anyone would agree that tricking children into watching porn would be to far. I guess not - Unnamed Google User Remade

These are elsagate. That means a video that tricks a kid into watching it by using family friendly characters like Elsa but have horrible, disgusting stuff in it

These videos are annoying and they are also included in search results about superhero movie clips... sooo pointless

Targeted to young children, but contains LOTS of inappropriate content.

Toy Collectors

These videos suck I hate the channels like Disney car toys and Disney collector here's why these channels suck Disney car toys does skits with Barbie dolls and owns like 5000 dolls and most of their videos are about frozen. Disney collector is obsessed with peppa pig and this is her intro for surprise egg videos with frozen eggs " Hey guys Disney collector here with 25 toy surprises including 3 egg surprises from the movie frozen and 5 play doh egg surprises SUCH CRAP

They suck. Lots of little kids watch their videos for some reason, even my sister. Surprise egg videos suck too. Whenever a single measly toy comes out, a million people start making play-doh eggs and going to toys r us and buying every toy in the aisle. they can't be THAT rich! Also the adults scream all their lines and the children are brats

The worst of these things is the surprise egg videos. I swear, they're EVERYWHERE. Like, "Spider-Man Play Doh Mega Egg Surprise! " or "Elsa surprise eggs with Frozen fun toys! " It never ends.

My playmate is obsessed with these, he even forces me to give him my laptop time JUST for him to watch Ryan Toys Review when his iPhone has low battery in the worst case scenario!

Make-up tutorials

I am no beauty expert, but I know from experience that just because your'e a female doesn't mean people should take makeup tips from you. Hell, some videos will make your friends think you got a job at the circus rather than going to prom.

Boring, I want to watch videos about cartoons and animes.

Make up is boring. I want to see a gaming video!

These are annoying but they do serve a purpose

Feminist Videos

Xaxaxaxaxa! Thanks so much for anyone who added this to the list! (I am talking about the man hating, bad feminism, not the true, good feminism). They deserve that for hating man. Sorry if I carried away a little.

I think of Riley (or is it Justin? ) Dennis when I think about man hating, bad feminism.

Some are good its just that most seem so sexest at times and they usually don't give actual examples

Those stupid women think were not important! I swear they're so annoying

Yeah I hate these because they think we are some separate species.

Mundane tasks

Do I need to explain

How to pick up a controller:
1. Pick it up with your feet
2. Handstand towards the window.
3. Put it down.
4. Throw it out the window with your hands.

Pretty unorginal.

Anime Reviewers

The Contenders


Every type GoAnimate video ever:

Grounded Videos: Some random person (Usually a made up character or a little kids show character) saying what they are going to do. (It can be something really bad or something really stupid) Then, the laugh for 2 seconds the do the thing they said they were going to do. Then their parents find out what they have been doing and the ground them for some time.(The parent usually says they are grounded for something like 1304897... years and it takes 3 minutes just for the parent to say that number) Then the character who did that thing cries while running to their room.

Rants: Some GoAnimate user saying that some show or video game sucks and doesn't come up with any actual reasons for it being bad. They usually go like this: This more like poopy this. This show/video game sucks. Do you know who likes this, (A character that they hate) Do you know who hates this (Themselves or a character that they like) End or rant.

Dead meat videos: ...more

Caillou pulls the fire alarm and gets grounded, Caillou fails school and gets grounded...that's about it. Oh, and to all you GoAnimate kids, please for the love of God learn to animate properly while you're thinking of a more original story.

Goanimate isn't that bad. It's actually pretty funny. It is only the stupid people for making unoriginal ideas. The life without parents thing is actually a thriller. Stop being so biased if you never seen goAnimate.

Grounded videos in a nutshell.

OHOHOHOHOHOHOH, Kayloo, how dare you do nothing, that's it, your grounded grounded grounded grounded grounded grounded for 9 zillion years. Go to your room now!

Most are annoying, some are good, but sometimes they can be "so bad their good".

Music videos

Unlike a lot of these on here, you CAN make these right. Biggest issue is that you'll see the worst songs on your recommended list for no reason!

It depends on the artist who makes it

Mesage to the person who said
"Look at actual music (1960-1970) and you will see how music is done in void :D".

Shut your porthole

1960-1970's music is never dead

What? I love Music Videos!


How is this so low on the list I mean we're the heck are the creativity with these vlog channels!? First off all they do is film themselves doing everyday things like going to the store or going to a restraint! But what I hate the most about vloggers is how DANG popular they are some of the most popular videos On YouTube are stinking vlogs! So the way I see it you have to work really hard and have to get your channel out there if you want to be a good content creator but if you film yourself in you're living room you get millions of views in 30 miniuts!? God YouTube is like soclism nowadays

Seriously, all you do is film your daily schedule and what goes on in your life. That's not entertainment, that's called wasting 30 minutes of your life

I seriously don't know why people even waste their lives by making a long video with clickbait and boring content. Seriously thinking about unsubscribing.

Come on, I don't want to see people get 1000 views just from showing us every second they are awake.

Prank Videos

Bro it's a prank see I pretended to kill him so it's a funny joke

In the words of SpongeBob: "They're actors."

They are just incredibly mean spirited.

They are so fake and unoriginal

Trend Videos

The videos that make it under YouTube's "Trending" tab are almost always garbage.

These videos are some of the worst cheap attempts to get views

The cancer of youtube


Setting the track speed to 1.25, a feature made readily available by YouTube at the push of a button, is considered 'amazing' by thousands. It's clickbait, low-effort and over-glorified. In many cases, the Nightcore version of a song will receive more praise than the original. You heard right, in many cases, the person who set the track speed to 1.25, again, a feature made readily available by YouTube at the push of a button, is credited more than the actual original artists. Imagine how they must feel. Then there are the fans who blindly follow this trend, regarding it as amazing and treating like trash anyone who would think otherwise.

There's nightcore backyardigans videos. There's one with an actual picture of what the backyardigans would look like if they were humans.

How to make a Nightcore video:
1. Speed up a song unnecessarily
2. Slap a picture of an anime girl on it
3. Profit

Nightcore channels usually don't monetize their videos due to fear of copyright infringement.

Basically just watching a sped up song, with an anime character, need I say much?


Let's face it: These kids are dumb.

You Laugh You Lose Videos

Rename it to "Try not to get bored" then it will be an actual challenge.

Just laugh anyway, they're outdated

Scary Pop-Ups/Screamers

These guys need to be at the top rather than Spot 12.

They are misleading, pranks, and rely on clickbait. The only reason these are done is for reactions.

What is a screamer, you ask? A screamer is a video with a clickbait title such as 'Where's Waldo? ', 'What's wrong with this picture? ' or 'talking puppy! ' Often, they have low volume at first, causing you to turn up your volume, and/or small text to make you go fullscreen. They also try to get you to focus on the screen. Around the midway point in the video, or around the end, after all the soothing music and the aforementioned tactics, an EAR-SPLITTING SCREAM will suddenly play, often accompanied with a scary picture, such as a zombie or a possessed woman.

There are literally WikiHow tutorials on how to identify and avoid screamers. All they are is cheap jumpscares designed to frighten you. If you have certain conditions or are easily scared, these can have LASTING EFFECT on you.

In short, look up the ...more

I think their funny


I like these, but I can see why many don’t.
