Top 10 Worst Types of YouTube Videos

The Top Ten
1 Click Bait

In terms of YouTube videos, my favorite kind of YouTube videos are clips of a TV event, interview videos, nostalgia videos and guitar covers. That's basically it.

YouTube once changed their algorithm to promote videos depending on watch time. It was intended to address the issue of "Reply girls," but I am astonished by the amount of clickbait that still exists and how YouTube continues to promote it. I'm tired of watching the likes of Jake Paul and Logan Paul, the biggest YouTubers, create clickbait videos and earn thousands, even millions, from it. If you're someone who relies on clickbait or misleading tactics to entice people to click, I urge you to stop and instead focus on creating original content for once.

They make these surprised faces for their thumbnails just to attract views (and possibly get likes, subscribers and laughs). This is I think the reason why so many people press dislike on reaction videos because it's stealing another person's content just for recognition. And why would a reaction video want recognition anyways?

Clickbaiting is like fishing except you use attractive pictures to people.

Put your picture in the fishing rod with your hook then throw it to the river (YouTube) then the fishes (community/people) got caught by your bait and finally put them into the bucket.

See, at least some fishes will leave some stitches in their eyes.

2 Reactions

I definitely see the pros and cons of reaction videos. The pros to me is that you actually have people laughing along with what's funny or they share the same opinions and feelings towards what they're reacting to as you do. The cons of reaction videos are just that they basically lack originality, they clickbait their videos and half of what they clickbait isn't even in the actual video, so you could just sit there and find them doing absolutely nothing the whole time. Or you have those people who react to themselves and pretend they don't even know what's going on. I don't know. MAYBE it's to keep their viewers interested?

Emma RBLX is such a stupid clone of Lisa Gaming who does the same thing as her, even her framing videos are much worst than hers. anyway she is so ugly that I would carry her while she's sleeping and then tie her up and tickle her non-stop >:). what is wrong with this girl these days.

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.

They espically doing reaction videos on the last guest! And guess what?! All they do is just crying and saying "aw what happened to him waa ;(" seriously, it's just a movie. Andit makes me mad of how they cry... what's so sad about it.. seriously. People. If you guys do reaction videos. Please get some brain cells and do something creative instead of stealing videos like a baby who ran out if ideas... I don't give a damn what you do on YouTube... but please. Take my advice and stop stealing and do the damn things by yourself. Imagine if a guy just did a reaction videos and got 100.000.000 views but the original guy who made a real video and only got 100.000 views while that person who stole his video has more views than him. People are quitting YouTube because of this "Reaction Madness..." and remember. I only writed this for those people who do reaction videos. I hope this "Reaction Madness" stops.

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

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.

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.

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?

4 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

I remember watching those videos as a kid. Now I can never look at frozen and spiderman the same way ever again.

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

5 Unboxing

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.

Whats in the box?
*a phone is laying in the box with the note saying "this is how cool you are"*
*box opener presses the button*
*phone says 0%*

6 Toy Collectors

My 9 year old cousin watches these all the time! I hate these! They're just pre-teen or 10 year old kids unboxing toys, reviewing, and playing with them.

Sometimes they're even making Disney and Marvel characters such as Spiderman and Elsa changing a Baby Alive doll's poopy diapers. That is just so wrong on so many levels!

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!

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.

7 Fortnite Videos

I am so tired of everyone making Fortnite videos. I hate that game so much.

I hate fortnite and its players.

I don't get the point of this game.

9 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.

10 Fetish Videos

I really don't know what to say about these videos. I don't feel disgusted, I just feel...odd and a bit weirded out about these videos

The Contenders
11 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.

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

12 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

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.

GoAnimate vs Actual Talent.
Well GoAnimate wins cause they have more views than actually good videos.

14 You Laugh You Lose Videos

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

15 Fanrage

Let's face it: These kids are dumb.

16 Challenge Videos

there's a dude full named Cory Flexing had sex with Siri to get her pregnant, how perverted his video is, men those type of videos do not improve my chance to do some challenges.

It sucks like tide pods challenge and other challenges it sucks

17 Makeup 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!

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

18 Gaming

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.

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?

Yeah, What's the point of watching somebody else playing a game when you can just play the game yourself

19 Call of Duty Videos
20 Stupid Challenges

Why the hell are they this stupid?!

They want to go to heaven or hell.

21 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

Youtuber BubbleTop thinks the mouse and the box stands it couple are a bonus, this guy had titled one of his videos Grand Theft OrangeCitrus, he should be dead for what he said.

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

There is no point of these existing.

22 Life Hacks
23 Sponsored Videos

One good channel is polluted by sponsors, then another good channel is.

No I don't want to buy any controllers with skins. I want to watch a video.

They advertise it for over a minute. Annoying

24 Clash Royale Videos
25 Nightcore

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.

Nightcore 101:
Speed music up by 0.25.
Steal- err... "Draw" a picture of an anime girl and put it on your video.
Congratulations! You fail at getting a life!

How to make a nightcore video
1. Speed up a song
2. Change the key of the song
3. Put an anime girl at the background
4. Make sure your ears bleed
5. Be paid millions
