Feel free to add to the list:

Social media influencers - I am amazed that some people are able to post a 10 minute video on YouTube about some product that they are shilling (like yoga pants), have millions of people watch it, and then many of those people actually going out and buying it. Then the "social media influencer" will shill a different product (maybe a different pair of yoga pants) and the same process repeats. Beauty care products, clothing, personal hygiene products, you name it - they shill it and supposedly make $$$.

EDM (electronic dance music) DJs - Guys like Diplo, Marshmello, etc. make millions of $$$ on tours where they basically stand on stage, press play on their electronic gizmos, and wave their hands in the air a few times. I get that their musical genius comes from making/mixing the music in the first place but I can't see why people pay big bucks for a concert ticket to see these guys.

Twitch - People actually pay money to watch other people play video games? The people actually playing the video games make big $? I don't get it. My parents always told me to not waste my life playing video games and to get a real job. Shows what my parents know.

I don't understand Tik Tok. I mean, couldn't girls shake their tits and ass on any other site? It's not like they broke new ground here...it's a bunch of braless tit shakers dancing horribly to loud, ridiculous music.

Tik Tok got over big because it's easy to use. That got it the key early adopters who were then followed by fans and friends. People joined because everyone else in their circle joined or the celebrities they admire joined. It grew from that. Instagram is late to the game with its Reelz and Twitter managed to kill Vine after buying it without converting its users. Tik Tok is far ahead of the competition although eventually a new social media platform will supplant it as that is the nature of these things.

I feel the same way about many sports. Snooker? Darts? Golf?

Those are definitely more fun to play than watch.

I love EDM live because of the usual lighting sync with the bass line, the improv remixes and covers. Feeling the bass reverb thru the crowd is pretty cool as well.



I don’t watch games on twitch because I’m not paying for it but from time to time I’ll watch a play thru or a highlight reel on YouTube. Sometimes they are doing something interesting or it’s of a game I played as a kid that I want to see again.

The whole "...Housewives of ...." franchise. I don't get how you get a whole bunch of women together and create drama out of it.

I never got the whole EDM craze. Just seems like lazy computer-generated music. I know it takes a lot more than that, but that is just my view of it.
