"All web content deserves to go viral."
— ClickHole slogan

On June 12, 2014, The Onion released the Spinoff website ClickHole as a Clickbait Gag parodying websites like BuzzFeed, Upworthy, The Huffington Post, and Cracked.

ClickHole claims that unlike those websites, which make "pandering and misleading content, most tragically falling short of going viral", its site mission is to have its articles shared with millions, even before viewers can understand what they just read, making it a veritable black hole of clicks. It lampoons a fairly diverse range of content, from social justice blogging to adorable baby videos to inane quizzes, "listicles" and even Choose Your Own Adventure-style "ClickVentures", that The Onion's format doesn't let it cover.

Not to be confused with the 1972 film ClickHole, starring Billy Dee Williams. And them's the facts!
