Fish: sees a bait

*fish gets the bait and gets pulled up*

Clickbait videos are destroying YouTube - ElSherlock

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

Shouldn't this be called videos with misleading thumbnails?

2 Unboxing

The only unboxing channel I like it Luna Lily. - XxembermasterxX

"Oh wow, I wonder what it's gonna be! "

Why do they act surprised when they bought it 99% of the time?

Sometimes I watch them and they are not bad, I like Banana's Mom because she does Lalaloopsy unboxing videos. - andrewteel

I hate those. - Luckys

3 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 - MChkflaguard_Yt

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 - NickVog

Reaction videos are the best kind of videos (in my opinion) - Luckys

Terrible. Adds no substance to the video and gets money of it

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.

5 Toy Collectors

I seriously hate these videos. They give Disney and Marvel bad names and they trash their reputations.

Horrible! The worst is stuff like Ryan's world.

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

No one cares about your Disney stuff. No one cares about your Kinder eggs. No one cares about your trip to Toys Rus. Congratulations to toy channels, your life is officially lost. - MChkflaguard_Yt

6 Spiderman and Elsa

The most harmful out of all the things on the list. Should be number 1.

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

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

How are these popular? And why isn't this higher on the list?

Probably cause the most popular character for young girls is Elsa and for young boys spiderman - Tyoshi

7 Make-up tutorials

Only Plan's videos are good sucks that she left. - XxembermasterxX

Annoying and overrated - LightningStrike

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

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.

12 Music videos


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


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!

Emma Chamberlain sucks. - Luckys

You talk on the camera about depression... THE END! - BlooPer

What about a VLOG with someone reacting to minecraft clickbaited youtube video while unboxing some makeup?

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

14 Trend Videos

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

The cancer of youtube - TheLegend28

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

15 Fanrage

Let's face it: These kids are dumb. - VenomousCrow

16 You Laugh You Lose Videos

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

Just laugh anyway, they're outdated - PancakePoyoPoyo

17 GoAnimate

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

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.

"Making videos out of dora and caillou" is for losers

The Backyardigans enough said. - Ilovestephanie

18 Nightcore

All of these channels should be exterminated. - XxembermasterxX

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

I try looking for songs on YouTube but nightcored ones appear instead and I don't get the point of nightcored rock songs.

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.

19 Scary Pop-Ups/Screamers

I think their funny

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 hate screamers not because I'm scared of them but because they are a cheap attempt to scare someone and even worse now big budget movies use them - christangrant

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

Roblox youtubers are terrible. EXAMPLE: AhmetAga (a Turkish Roblox Youtuber) he steals thumbnails from; gamingwithkev, dantdm, denis, pals and almost EVERY SINGLE ROBLOX YOUTUBER. plus (if you are turkish you will understand) he makes clickbait videos like: ROBLOXUN SONU MU GELİYOR?

All you do is watch someone playing a game for 10 minutes and listening to someone saying random things. You can't react to him or learn something from these videos SO WHAT IS THE POINT? - MChkflaguard_Yt

Watching someone play a video game is kind of like watching sports. You do it for entertainment. - imnothere

When you can play a game, why watch someone else play it and hear their ear-bleeding voices? You will not even learn stuff(even those related to the game)from these videos. - MChkflaguard_Yt

"I love watching Caillou and Dora get grounded which they are hilarious"


There's too many of them - ElSherlock

I love watching Caillou and Dora get grounded which they are hilarious - andrewteel

I used to find these videos entertaining, but now I don't know why. All the video's about is some kid getting grounded, usually a baby show character. They are nauseatingly predictable and either the character gets grounded for something as futile and unimportant like farting in the store, or something completely illegal and outlandish like destroying a city. The punishments are basically abuse and don't get me started with behavior card day videos or punishment day videos! - SmashPrincess
