YouTube Parties
This reminds me of that video where ... no? How have you not seen that? Oh man, let me find it. No, it's ok, we can go back to your video later.

A YouTube party is when a group of people show eachother YouTube videos. The problem with YouTube parties is that no one pays attention to the video that's playing; instead, they're thinking of the video they should watch next. The title text shows one of the people in the party remembering of another video they find more interesting and trying to put it on so the party can see it, the joke being that the other people are just as disinterested and really just want the party to watch their video.

Transcript

The problem with YouTube parties:
Cueball (thinking): This video is blowing their MINDS.
Group (thinking): Oh man, I know what video we should watch once this is over.

I'd say most "YouTube parties" are just coincidental gatherings of people in front of a computer, e.g. during any other kind of party, or in an office break. As for the explanation given here, I don't see the comic being "unclear whether they realize it". They don't realize it, everybody thinks his video will blow the others' minds. --YMS (talk) 20:05, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

If you tell a story about your kid, I hope you're not doing it to show off. In my opinion, that's immoral. 172.68.47.6 03:55, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
