** Sometimes, though not as much as when they [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness first installed the ad system]], an "ad" video can seem to "misfire" and go to a completely random video on [=YouTube=]. It's one thing if you get to the little yellow bar and get an advertisement for a product, it's another entirely when you're watching a ten-minute clip from a nature show only to suddenly get interrupted by a four hour concert, or a cellphone camera video where someone is ranting about something in a completely foreign language.

* OvershadowedByControversy: Most discussions about [=YouTube=] in TheNewTens have revolved around their tricky relationships with content creators and advertisers, which has led to a large number of [[ScrappyMechanic scrappy mechanics]] covered on the site's own segment on that trope's page.

** Greek videos of anything that aired/premiered in Greece from the 2000s or earlier take the cake, though: Almost any of those videos is guaranteed to have at least one comment bashing anything belonging in that mass-media. A good example would be a comment in the Greek version of [[Disney/{{Hercules}} The Gospel Truth]], where someone said something along the lines of "now the actors in Greek dubs of Disney films can't even talk". And this type of comment is ''more'' likely to be upvoted or even the top comment in there.

* NostalgiaFilter: My god, where to begin? Any video from the 90s or earlier decade (some even ''early-to-mid 2000s'') will have comments (usually with several thumbs up or even as the top comment) claiming that everything was better back then or that said mass-media (music, cartoons, etc.) "sucks now." Even if it was something heavily criticized at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: The Youtube ad system is a divisible topic between the users. Defenders say it's a good, albeit flawed, idea which bring more creators to the website (giving half of the ad revenue), increasing the content. In other hand, people who hate it say it's annoying to have to watch ads and Youtube should be ad-free again.

* MotorMouth: Countless videos plays this straight, but this can be sometimes invoked by increasing the video's speed (this only works on PC's).

%%WinBackTheCrowd: YouTube Rewind 2012.

to:

%%WinBackTheCrowd: * TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some people feel that Youtube's Copyright School video falls into this. While the video itself is fine in theory, the video chooses to use the ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' to tell the story, despite them not really having a channel on Youtube[[note]]There are videos of episodes from that series on Youtube, but they are uploaded alongside other content on one channel[[/note]]. As some people have pointed out, it would make much more sense for people who actually have to deal with Youtube's Copyright system on a regular basis, like LetsPlay/PewDiePie, to be the ones to walk people through the process.
