With the advent of cheap mobile data, every day sees a new trend with netizens bringing surprises. The internet users never leave the world disappointed with their act of rare kindness. And when it comes to liking or disliking any content, they have gained an extra hand over doing something out of the box. What is scaring about the inappropriate use of the internet is that the netizens may take even a stupid content to the list of the most liked ones or drop it to the rock-bottom, ensuring that it becomes the most disliked video of the era even after the content looks or sounds very substantial. This year is going on the same line in establishing many such records. One such record falls in the category of most disliked videos on Youtube till date.
Today, TSA has decided to showcase the top 3 most disliked videos of the world with the story behind their reaching to that position.
Youtube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind
Youtube’s 2018 “Rewind” stands tall at the top of the list with around 18M dislikes against only 2.8M likes. The video depicts a mashup of biggest trends on the site in 2018, making it seem more of a corporate advertising over performers, viewers and popular cultural events covered in the same year. This came as criticism from PewDiePie, a youtube channel with the most number of subscribers, who also accused Youtube of trying false means to earn money out of the video without caring about the happiness of the viewers.
The “Rewind” has attracted flaks from the content creators and viewers over its worthless captured moments showing people sharing videos of themselves eating God knows what amount of food. Many have not hesitated to call it the most cringy video at that point for it failing to wire a connection with the community and its creators.
Marques Brownlee, one of the YouTubers featured in the video has chipped in to say that the “Rewind” series had become twisted over the years since its start in 2011 because the problem lies in its advertising tone to the viewers and 2018 one has done that at large, which is the reason it garnered over 10M dislikes in a matter of just 8 days of its release.
The Youtube took the negativity around the video in a very light manner, arguing that the video isn’t meant only for inviting likes rather it collates the real-time reactions from the viewers, be it like or dislike.
Baby by Justin Bieber
The song with 11.2M dislikes stands second in the list counted top to bottom after youtube’s “Rewind”. There is one thing noteworthy about the video that is besides these many dislikes the song is bestowed with over 14M likes, unlike other most disliked videos weighing more in the number of dislikes. And the video has met with all these dislikes in a period of 10 long years whereas other videos had made a similar record in just a few days.
There have been numerous reasons that factored in the record-making of the video. Different people have conceived different theories behind a large number of thumps down the song has registered in its name. Some believe that people were so jealous of Justin Bieber that they never wanted the Canadian Singer to helm the music world as the song ‘Baby’ had come at the very start of his career. Some say that the song earlier had very minimum dislikes but shot up after Bieber began to display shoddy behaviour in the press and public domain. People couldn’t take the insult from their star anymore, so they went ahead hitting the dislike button on his most popular song to teach him a lesson that Bieber shouldn’t take his fans for granted that he would get away with anything he does bad.
Sometime back, ‘Baby’ song was first in the list with the largest number of dislikes but Bieber still had many of his fans loyal to him. The theory says that his lovers found the chance to remove their favourite song from the top position by disliking youtube’s ‘Rewind’ more rigorously.
Sadak 2 Trailer
The Bollywood movie Sadak 2 trailer has maintained more dislikes than likes since the minute it was released a couple of days back. Such happening was very much expected long before the video game. Because in India people have taken harshly on the gangs of nepotism, as they perceive it so, such as Alia Bhatt, Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar, Salman Khan and other star kids. Since the movie has Alia Bhatt in it and Mahesh Bhatt directed the movie, they have fallen victim to the ire of the public. All that’s unfolding today traces back to two months back when Bollywood lost one of his promising actors Sushant Singh Rajput by suicide.
People see nepotism as the reason big enough for the cause of the late actor’s death. To avenge his death, people have come together disliking the trailer as much as possible, no matter it reaches 1st position in trending with the number of views it’s receiving with every click on the video. But people are adamant that they need to make the trailer become tarred with a plethora of dislikes. And they have also called for a complete ban on watching the film.
The trailer, with as many as 11M dislikes, stands 3rd in the list just behind Beiber’s ‘Baby’ by a margin of less than 2 lakh dislikes. Nobody knows this list could turn up-side-down in coming days, also if Beiber’s fans come to know of the reaction the trailer is receiving in India, they might come flying to the video for the sake of just taking it above ‘Baby’ 😅
It will be fun to see which video unseats the other to occupy the position. The trend suggests that Sadak 2 leading the pile is in the offing if people have vowed to bring the promoters of nepotism down since it is India, where people are way too emotional about everything. When they can ban Chinese apps in retaliation, then they have the guts to do anything unexpected.
