Thinking about starting a career as a YouTuber? Get in line. Right now, there is an unprecedented (unpresidented? Haha, just kidding. We’re having fun here!) amount of content and creators on YouTube, which means that, if you want to stand out, you can’t rely on a simple vlog as a means of getting views anymore. Instead, one must have a story, one with Michael Bay-esque action and M. Night Shyamalan-worthy twists. You know, like this:
Of course, if you’ve ever watched any of these videos, you’ll know that it’s rare for the content to actually match up with the title. The missing person is probably, like, an old friend they ran into on the street and the psycho friend probably just texted a little too much. Recently, a bunch of people have taken note of these uh, sensationalist tactics and decided to skip straight to the real story. Through memes, of course. So, check out the best Youtuber “Storytime” memes right here:
