Strange YouTube Videos
There are some weird people making strange YouTube videos featuring children’s TV and movie characters. The aim of the videos is to trick kids into watching them thinking they’re going to get the real deal. These videos use keywords that enable the videos to show up in the suggested videos section after your child watches a legitimate children’s show. That’s a shady business practice right there.
Themes for many of these strange YouTube videos involve suicide, giant spiders attacking kids, etc. A recurring practice of the videos’ creators is to feature Disney characters (like Elsa from Frozen) wearing bikinis and having pool parties. The creators of such videos trick the algorithms to get viewers so they can earn ad revenue. However, the jig is up… NOT! YouTube is doing their best to disable these videos because they are using trademarked characters to scam the system and earn money. While many of the videos have had their ads disabled so they can’t earn money, there are new ones popping up every day. It’s a battle that YouTube will be constantly fighting.
These Strange YouTube Videos May Not Be Suitable For Anybody
It is obvious that the creators of these videos have quite a bit of disposable income. Many of the mini shows are filmed at really nice houses with nice yards and swimming pools. And, a lot of the movies feature many different costumes and gadgets. The acting in these clips is mostly terrible. Again, they often rely on pretty girls in bikinis to attract viewers.
YouTube is getting an earful and a half from upset parents that don’t want their children seeing the beloved characters committing suicide (by drinking bleach) or getting pregnant. When parents pawn their kids off on YouTube, because they can’t stand spending time with them, they want them watching wholesome programming. “Mommy is going to smoke some crack with your ‘Uncle Frank’; You’re going to sit in your room and shut your face.”
