Bucking grumpy social media trends, YouTube commenters are hilarious

YouTube commenters have become increasingly funny over time. 

Twitter users are at war with each other constantly. Facebook turns best friends into mortal enemies as soon as a political post shows up. Instagram — well, Instagram is for lovers. But YOUTUBE has become a COMEDY COMPETITION.

And it’s amazing.

It keeps happening. I scroll through comments on YouTube — on some pretty serious videos sometimes — looking for arguments. And instead, I see commenters trying to one-up each other for the funniest comment.

The winner is the one who ends up with the most likes, which drives their comment to the top of the thread.

Enough from me. This is what I’m talking about.

Headline: Russian ship comes too close to a U.S. ship. 


The comments:

Bad*ss beardy man shows people how to deal with weapons malfunctions. 

And then the comments: 


Godzilla himself shows how to do a leg workout. One would think the YouTube community would be grateful for his godly advice. 



This YouTuber just wanted to give a juggling tutorial… That’s all he wanted. 


Then this happened: 

This YouTuber made a tutorial on how to fall asleep in two minutes. 




This Navy Seal wanted to show us how to prepare for dangerous situations. 



Meanwhile, on Twitter: 



Life as we know it. Sigh.
