A website called Zero Views has made its mission to repost the best Youtube videos that have zero views, effectively delivering them from such state. It’s yet another Tumblr, but unlike most Tumblrs (how on earth do you pluralize that?), it’s not hipster at all.
Most of the videos posted therein are genuinely funny, either because they involve cute things (cats and kids) or because they have a strong WTF component (a guy enthusiastically chewing a gum), and it’s even better than Wimp, because these are user-uploaded. They are still selected, of course, but it works like a direct access to weird videos you would never look for on your own. It’s somewhat big-brotherish, but it’s still fun.
Before I present a small selection, I’d like to point out something that I realized. Kids today do exactly the same things on camera as we did a couple of decades alone. The very same things. Pretend to be anchormen; pretend to be tv hosts; pretend to give or get interviews. The difference is that back in the day it was kept in the house (sparing us from the shame after growing up, lest our parents decide it’s fun to mention that with relatives), now it’s broadcast all over the internet and will stay there for ever and ever until the end of time. It shall be interesting to see what the world will be like in a few decades, when you’ll see a video of your heart surgeon passed out drunk. In all seriousness, any generation N thought that generation N+1 was doomed. Our parents thought so about us, we think so about our children, so all of this is a good-hearted jest. Still, the whole concept of privacy is changing for real, and it will trigger a sharp paradigm shift at some point.
Enough of the philosophical blabber. Enjoy these:
