Will you rename your favourite movie to a click bait YouTube title?

Asked by rebbel (33287points) 1 month ago

Clickbait is a text or a thumbnail link that is designed to attract attention and to entice users to follow that link and read, view, or listen to the linked piece of online content, being typically deceptive, sensationalized, or otherwise misleading.

Here’s an example (borrowed from Twitter):

Poor Mimi.
After all our hyperbolic exaltation of her click baiting, she’s been working SO hard to give us a SECOND encore, that she’s passed out at her keyboard. :P

Now comes the hard part.

For which title should @Mimishu1995 receive the award?

I nominate “Two ways to destroy a nuclear-density monster, when your supposedly ‘guardian’ robot turns out to be a freakin’ pacifist!” :p

Drumroll – Envelope please @Brian1946. And the Fluther Award for best (Multiple) Awnser goes to: @Mimishu1995!!! For her awnser, uh- what Brian said. Moving right along…

@Brian that’s your title, not mine :)

@Mimishu1995 Whoops, my bad. ;p

I nominate “4 INSANE reasons you should commit suicide RIGHT NOW – the last reason will BLOW YOUR MIND”, an original click bait title based on the synopsis of “The Fire Within”.

This is an apropos tribute to your internal furnace, where this gem was forged!
