Nothing good or productive has ever come out of the YouTube comment section. Until now.
The above video, produced by Adrian Bliss for comedy network Dead Parrot, provides a dramatic reenactment of an actual (and perfectly typical) YouTube comment war: an empty and vile back-and-forth that originated beneath a popular One Direction video. The simplicity of the concept is brilliant and its execution is flawless.
AND: the video’s title — “YouTube Comment Reconstructions #1” — suggests Dead Parrot will produce a whole series of reenactments. I hope they do one for every YouTube comment war ever.
