Their fans will often flood every video they can find related to the work in question and spam it with "X brought me here" responses or parrot the most memorable moments and quotes of the personality's review of the work. Some people claim "I liked/faved this ''before'' (famous person) did".

\n* Crappy-quality videos made in Windows Movie Maker. Movie Maker is the default movie-editing software for Windows computers and tends to be a cheap or even just plain lazy way of editing together a video. Due to the extremely limited number of editing options it provides, it is very easy to tell if a Movie Maker template has been slapped onto a video, because you'll see a blue screen with a title in Arial Black or some other low-effort edit job. Two traits in Movie Maker YT productions are more common than any other: using the Bradley Hand font because it looks sophisticated and opening a video with the artsy title crossfade effect.

** Debates in overall. * Decided to watch the video related to the Color Doll test? Good chance there's going to be a lot of racism-related comment chains.



* A few years ago, we had the chain postings which required you to copy the comments to several videos or else something weird would (supposedly) happen. People generally ignored these. A feature YouTube once had was bulletin posts on the side of an old channel layout, where these chain letter posts had fallen into at one point. While not as common as in 2010, it still happens sometimes. They've spread to other sites like UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} Workshop in the meantime, in the form of ASCII art that takes up several lines when really, a thumb up in the Workshop is much quicker and effective.
* "You wanna see a problem with the new comment section?" [[note]]Explanation:Since November 2013, thanks to Google changing the comment section of the site so that comments go directly to GooglePlus, users can now make comments that are ''much longer'' than 500 characters, and posting (unsolicited) URLs. Said users have exploited this by posting this message and then copy/pasting it ''dozens and dozens of times''.[[/note]]
** Not to mention posting incredibly large messages, such as excerpts from books or Wikipedia articles, or resurrected ASCII art from the late 2000s, such as Bob building an army to destroy Google+ depicted with him standing near a tank.[[note]]Doesn't help that Bob lurked in Steam Workshop for a while in 2013, and became misattributed to a new larger ASCII skeleton (2013). Bob also got parodied by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y0SCQJvA1c this video]] (released June 2014).[[/note]]
* The user [=PressFartToContinue=] has become a meme in and of himself, due to dropping comments (most of which are sarcastic or joking) on a staggering number of videos with a ''huge'' variety of subjects. The MemeticMutation comes from multiple people invariably replying to him, either asking what in the world he is doing commenting on any given video, or expressing despair that he's shown up.
** This meme has now taken a dark turn after PFTC doxed [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger Leigh]] and revealed himself to be a stalker.
* The question "What song is playing?"... and, it seems, ''[[AskAStupidQuestion anything]]'' [[AskAStupidQuestion not music-related]], on any YouTube video has one answer. Darude - Sandstorm. This meme spread from Website/{{Twitch}}.
** How it started.
*** The video on twitch, where it was the correct answer to the song.
*** A question on Yahoo answers was asked about [[https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100314111115AAz2IGy this really popular techno song, they play it in clubs]], and based on the flimsiest of descriptions it was CORRECTLY identified as Darude - Sandstorm with a Youtube video posted.
*** From that moment forth, The Internet declared that this song has magical correct answer being powers, and became a smart alec answer to any question.
** "What song is playing, and (please) don't say 'Darude - Sandstorm'."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Because of the above, it's become common on any video that actually features the song (e.g., the official music video) to make jokes about it.[[/labelnote]]
