The nightmare videos of childrens' YouTube - and what's wrong with the internet today | James Bridle

Writer and artist James Bridle uncovers a dark, strange corner of the internet, where unknown people or groups on UZvid hack the brains of young children in return for advertising revenue. From "surprise egg" reveals and the "Finger Family Song" to algorithmically created mashups of familiar cartoon characters in violent situations, these videos exploit and terrify young minds -- and they tell us something about where our increasingly data-driven world is headed. "We need to stop thinking about technology as a solution to all of our problems, but think of it as a guide to what those problems actually are, so we can start thinking about them properly and start to address them," Bridle says.

Does nobody realize that moderation is a thing? Like, it's not all or nothing. It's possible to use the Internet for good things. Yes, youtube has a video of Hitler in a bikini fighting a skeleton apparently 5:20 but it's mostly just memes and cat videos. Just find a playlist and turn off autoplay. That's like the first rule of UZvid. Never turn on autoplay or you're gonna find creepypasta worthy content eventually.

I wish the problem of agency in these new systems were better understood when the internet arrived but in the case of reality, at least in the near future. I feel like a product of a cowboy generation of the internet, being incredibly focused on what is good and right and influencing a better world, yet falling foul of systems in a society that doesn't understand it and ostracises...

I’m so glad that someone is actually addressing this stuff. These videos have been a problem for ages. Good thing I was mostly unaffected by this in my childhood. Though, there were a few videos I can recall that frightened me, like... a giant marshmallow peep destroying someone’s house. Or something. I’m going to show this video to my parents as an attempt to keep my sister away from UZvid. She watches an unhealthy amount of “toy unboxing” videos...

I absolutely do not agree I make videos for kids .. As a parent myself you need to watch your baby and choose what videos they watch .. if you leave your baby alone with screen for any reason then that’s your Fault . I make educational videos with my baby and he learned Numbers and Alphabets and animals names and were having fun. As a Parent Be responsible

I have a 5 year old cousin that watches this weird content. I don't want to tell her mother because it's none of my business, but her daughter is getting brainwashed by this money hungry unoriginal disgusting content creators. I really think that youtube should start to ban this videos as quickly as possible.

News reports and academics during the Minecraft boom were also critical of what Minecraft was doing to young brains. In the 80s, there was controversy over He-Man due to "violence" (it's very tame), when I was a kid there was moral outrage over Mortal Kombat in public arcades, and you can even go back to the 1930s and find articles on the harmful effects of radio shows! My point here isn't that nothing in the world is dangerous, but - whatever the age or generation - adults seem to always label the stupid things children like as a danger just because we don't understand them. In 20 years, people like your brother might look at this talk and just laugh.....because - just like seeing hundreds of Fatalities didn't damage my generation - I doubt a few stupid finger songs are really going to traumatize children in a fundamental, irreversible way.

I think this is a generational thing. Its all about knowing how to navigate the internet and also a bit of having thick skin. I mean when I was growing up in the late 90's early 2000's I was given free reign online. I'd watch crazy animations on Newgrounds and see weird creepy gross pop-up etc. You eventually just learn that its just the internet and there's weird stuff there. I don't know when this became such an issue for people. I think there has been this over "vanillazation" of the internet and now people want more "rules" and "laws" to limit what the internet can be. I am disturbed by this WAAAAAY more than some weird little videos that parents who can't pay attention to what their baby watches freak out about. Isn't it a good lesson for a child to learn how to navigate and search for things they want online? Why is it that every time a parent complains about something the whole system has to be broken down to capitulate to their supposed needs? Ah I am just so tired of this.

Idk why this video is always appearing in my notifications. In fact, UZvid Kids Trash isn’t on UZvid, it’s everywhere. It appears on Google, especially since I haven’t asked for it. And the more I see these, the more I start to lose faith in the internet.

You should always be aware of whatever your kid watches; whether you want to sleep in and your kid is up or that your busy watching your favorite show or doing some other business, you should beware of what they’re watching because one day, I’m telling you, one day, they’ll start going on the Apple TV and visit the UZvid area on there to watch those dumb UZvid Kids Videos.

Overdramaticizing just innocent childrens rhymes and songs that are completely idiotic. The violent things sure, those are bad, but the entire first half of the video is dumb. Can your average person really not recall anything about their childhood? These were probably around since before the alphabet and equally annoying, but whoa now it's on the internet where everything spawns a billion people copying it, so it's sCAaaAAaAry!!!

I'm a 13 year old girl, and I've seen some of these videos. A lot of people in the comments section are sugarcoating everything. But I'm going to get rid of the sugar and give you the bare facts. • People make these videos to earn money. • Most of these videos are all the same theme. • A lot of parents don't know what their kids are watching online. These videos make me sick to my stomach. It feels like children are being exposed to far too much at such a young age.

I've watched some other UZvid contents creators comment towards this, the word nightmare is the most similar presentation from every adult or matured response or maybe even those goofy guys you might saw young people watch today like Idubbz or H3H3, they are disgusted by this particular thing too. I guess that's where it has come to a serious level.
