It is a fascinating question. We are supposed to be kind and compassionate people, but we love to see others fail. Some of the videos are of people getting hurt. Why do we find this so entertaining? Is this our secret desire to see harm come to other people?
I think the idea of these YouTube videos is really crazy. We have thousands of people out there running around capturing very dangerous things and then publishing them on this free Internet channel. Then others want to see them. They literally can’t get enough of the pain and suffering from the failures of those in the videos. So they share them and comment on them. And they make great “best of” videos that are then re-shared for others to see..
