Just when you thought you’ve lost hope in the human race, you are lead down the YouTube rabbit hole to a series of music videos by The Gap Band (here’s my favorite) only to find a wealth of amazing commenters that are quippier than the New Girl cast:
You’re right, pasadener, nothing has gotten funkier than Early in the Morning. It’s pretty darn funky.
Even Hungary knows what’s up.
Now with the integration of utilizing Google+ for comments, we can hopefully start seeing these types of amazing comments (and responses from the uploader themselves) float to the top, while trolly, not LOLing comments sink down into the depths, never to be seen again.
So my point is, yes, YouTube can be a troll zone. But let the Mad Hatter be your guide and take you down your own YouTube rabbit hole. Soon you’ll find a community of people who love The Gap Band as much you do. YouTube, like other social media networks, was built for conversation and sharing through video. And anything that discourages trolls and allows people to be recognized for better comments is a good thing in my book.
So. Maybe it’s the Black Keys that tickle your fancy?
OK, so it gets a little weird down in the rabbit hole. At the end of the day, the world (of YouTube) is your oyster. Now you just need to find the pearls.
