As someone who spends a frankly disgusting amount of hours in bed, I get through a lot of YouTube and, honestly, I'd be lying if I said that I wouldn't watch just about anything. Having said that, I have plenty of favourite search terms to offer you - with varying levels of complete addiction. Now, with no further ado...
These are pretty much the same thing, and like it or not - they're crazy addictive. These are usually beauty products that people regret, although sometimes there are just random products thrown in. These are good for two reasons; you either agree and are happy somebody shares your view, or you disagree and you spend the whole video marvelling at how anyone can dislike that product - which is usually something you lost long ago and now have the motivation to dig out.
The original of this of course is by grav3yardgirl and I think it used to go up weekly on a Friday - and I like this. We don't really have "As Seen On TV" here so it's good to know what crap infomercials in America are selling people - also sometimes you get a treat when it's something you actually can get here through JML or similar. Basically, this is just hilarious to watch and know that someone, somewhere has bought one of these seriously.
This is an old favourite of mine that I rarely pull out anymore, but it's a top search term none the less. You will honestly find all sorts on this, from rollercoasters, to things that kids have said, to unsolved crimes. These aren't for the faint hearted, and they're definitely not to watch on your own - it's true that some are laughably unscary, but some really do have you wanting to check under the bed after you've switched the light off.
Now, within this category I have a cheeky favourite, because I love tarababyz accent and so I put her Mac Lipstick Collection With Swatches on as I'm going to sleep - there's just something about Snob that I find soothing. All of these are good though - you may laugh, Katy did, but I absolutely promise that these are addictive in all kinds of ways. They're the adult version of those videos kids love where somebody opens all the surprise toy eggs.
