Why does every idiot on YouTube post thumbnails of themselves with their mouth wide open?
 

 
1. I don't care to watch people "react" to anything, when I can just watch the sh*t myself. Don't even understand why that's a genre of video.

2. Whenever them sh*ts show up on my feed it's just a bunch of thumbnails with nerds with they mouth wide open, smiling all goofy like they're waiting for a cumshot

Can somebody explain why this is a thing, especially on channels run by and meant for 30 year old internet nerds (and little kids I guess)

image

I get that Youtube is a medium for ugly people, who would never otherwise be asked to be "on air" content to be content creators. Is the mouth open thing to distract from the fact that 85% of the people are ugly monsters?

What is it? Somebody explain this to me. I hate looking at these people image

Hmm never noticed

I’m guessing it’s to subconsciously trick people into thinking something more interesting is happening in the video

I never really noticed because I don't have those type of videos recommended on my YT front page because I don't watch "Teens, college kids react to, etc" videos.

Like was said above, it's probably for the sole reason to get more views to subconsciously make a person believe the video is exciting than it really is

Could also argue that at this point you would stand out more if you were the only video in a stream without your mouth hanging open like an autistic person

Looks like they are speaking and/or surprised - thereby encouraging you to click and watch to figure out wtf is going on. Nothing suprising. Not all YouTube stars are ugly btw.

I forget the channel but i remember a guy saying analytics proved that preview pics with a face looking shocked and having their mouth agape would gain more views and clicks...

This was years ago but theres a reason why every YT vid looks like that

EDIT : Youtube actually sent him sh*t saying he should create preview pics with a shocked face because that would get him more views

It’s literally in the YouTube handbook that this is a tactic that should be implemented because it attracts clicks from gullible children and the stupidest adults. Think about how many people stupid tho. You always gonna catch more dubs appealing to the lowest common denominator

I don't like seeing any person on those review type videos just be the narrator and show clips like eventually the ugly emergency awesome guy was smart enough to start posting his cartoon face instead of his fat actual face at the end, they have been ugly nerds their entire lives now they suddenly think we want to see them talk about movies and tv shows.

I think as usual it all comes down to pu**y because these guys want to get recognized at comic con by groupies and get some free a*s. Only show your ugly face and funny shaped body if you are a great actor or salesman. Dave Thomas was a great salesman who looked friendly and personable and hardworking so he was in his commercials after the old wheres the beef lady run ended. Now he is dead and his daughter is like the Bus kids running the lakers all wrong.

You see local commercials with old ugly people or their ugly kids and we all know they cant sell or act and it would be better for business if they hired attractive talented actors but that vanity and ego has them all up in the camera like puff daddy.

While you are asking this stupid asinine question, these YouTubers bank accounts are getting fatter by the second for doing merely nothing.

To make it seem like what they are reacting to is interesting. I'm more irritated, although I really shouldn't care, at reaction videos themself. Mainly the channels that are nothing but reaction videos. Using someone else's content to up your views.

I always upload custom thumbnails for my videos, but YT always gives me suggestions for thumbnails. One of them always has my mouth opened like that. Its like they run a face scan of your file upload while your uploading, and want you to choose that as your thumbnail.
