New trend of "Reaction" videos

Recommended Posts

it is pretty annoying to me. one, it takes away views from the actual people who make the video, which is an insult to the content creator who want to increase the views on their original video and get more subscriptions. plus, i see it as a way people seek validation from others for whether that content is good enough, especially desis with an inferiority complex who need approval from foreigners for a particular movie or tv show. your opinion?

I beg to differ, 

 

* It increases the visibility of the channels and their content. For ex, after watching réactions of 'what the folks' I came to know about how awesome dice media channel is. 

 

* It gives another dimension to the content, well I don't watch many reaction videos but someone like Jaby koay is smart, his take on content is really singular, mainly non-judgmental and from a production POV which I enjoy. 

 

* It's more fun to watch web-series along with reaction gangs. I enjoyed TVF tripling much more in reaction video of Jaby's than when I watched it originally.

Not a new trend. TVF chewtiyas even started appearing on some mexican lodu's videos. I was like, have some self respect; you people are creating original content and that lodu isn't even white so what's with seeking approval?! I'm sure that was a contributing factor in me losing interest. 

Slavery is genetic, that's my conclusion from all this.

So you keep seeing all these reaction videos? Why do you do that.

I am not a fan of reaction videos either, but what I find weirder is people watching videos of other people cooking something and then eating it on video. It's a big thing in South Korea.

Again, keep your lemurian urges to yourself. I asked you to take me through your reasoning not rephrase what you typed in the original comment.

How does it increase visibility?

 

Basically only those who are aware of a certain show would watch a 'reaction' video. People do not watch reaction videos to shows and then watch shows. These aren't trailers/teasers.

 

A cursory glance at the reactions to the reaction video posted by the OP shows that most of the comments are by Indians!!!

An American person reviews Bollywood movies , not particularly well, and his reviews are lapped up by Indians in India. I don't see too many American whites/blacks/etc commenting on his stuff. His TG is basically Indians in India. Tells you that the need for validation by the gora exists, if not overtly, at a subconscious level surely.

I have seen instances of these even when absolutely no name Australian and NZ cricketers tweet praise about Indian players/ Indian culture etc and get a gazillion retweets.

 

Like it or not, we as a society, have a  parvenu inferiority complex.

had watched couple of whites reacying to a Telugu movie fight scene,  was mildly funny, but a boring trend . YouTubers content is sometimes brilliant and sometimes caters to LCD among people. That's what happens  if you don't have a regulatory board making them or people should self regulate and not like them.

 

I love watching a cooking show , some are about cooking in a frozen place in remote places, it's very primal. 

 

Try watching Gold Digger videos. It is about a girl rejecting a man's approach thinking he was average. Later, it turns out that he is rich or has a fancy car, she goes back to him. The man rejects her for being a gold digger. Absolutely pathetic , but people are watching them in every language.  People with broadband connections with lots  of free  time are making them and others with same are watching them too.

Hope you're aware all "prank" "social experiments" are all fake

Idiots with inferiority complex like you are the reason that a loser like jaby is running a successful channel on youtube, I came across his channel way before he started reacting to Indian content, the firangs didn't give a sh!t about his phateechar channel but the Indians start drooling over the opinion of any idiot with a foreign accent, people like you disgust me

Some of the co host at Jabby channel are hot. 

 

The most important thing in giving reaction is that you are really and really watching it for the first time. Almost 80 percent of the host seems to have watched the stuff before and are only interested in saying good things about India and Bollywood so that people do subscribe to their channel and they can earn money.

 

Reactions of Jabby seem to be honest but he is way too sweet about every trailor. He even liked Chandni chowk to China. His co host Achara has good knowledge about Asia in general. 

Faruk of Pakistan Channel is genuine guy because he seems to be offended by seeing anything against his country in Indian movie or serials. Other than these two all other are idiotic channels.

Well firstly, give yourself a pat on your back for using all 9 brain cells that you possess to come up with such diatribe. 

 

Point of contention : Only Indians have inferiority complex because they watch reaction videos. 

 

Let's put this theory to acid test, shall we?

 

 

So Americans suffer with huge inferiority complex as well, that they prefer to watch reaction videos? 

 

 

What about the Koreans? Are they having inferiority complex as well? 

 

 

 

So manchilds and kids suffer from inferiority complex as well? 

 

Moreover, I find it funny that I disgust you, yet you will probably be the first one who will run onto Padosi forum whenever India wins a match against them, to see their reaction(s). :phehe:

 

I always backpack a shovel, just to put keedas like you in their places. So come up with usual feces you vomit and I will reply whenever I have time for vermins like you. 

 

Good day!
