Song: Alexander Perls “Maximalist

This video has several nuanced levels of silliness to it. First of all, there is the idea that a devil appeared in the twin towers. Silly. And then there is a silly face which appears at about 00:40.

I think youtube viewers prefer videos which look like they were screen-captured in 2003 using windows 98. This seems to be something about football. I actually don’t know enough about football to make any sense of it, but there are definitely some balls going into the net thingy.

penetracion .. the youtube video with 85 million views

Artist: Streets In Motion
Song: “Futurefunk (Short Edit)

The big question with this video is: Is something wrong with YouTube, or is something wrong with YouTube viewers — or even — perhaps more interestingly, does this have 85 million views for a good reason? For example, perhaps watching this for eight seconds is in fact a great usage of any person’s time.

This video consists of one guy jumping up and down. Is it thumbnail spam? Thumbnail spam isn’t allow if you’re trying to do it. But if your video really is just eight seconds long, and involves someone jumping up and down, then you’re all good.
