How much time do you spend looking at things people link from Upworthy or Buzzfeed? Half the enjoyment of Clickhole is the skewering of the "feel-good" and "fun" nature of those sites. The jokes are a bonus.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 18 June 2014 20:18 (five years ago) link

I wonder if this site will help destroy social clickbait or just reinforce it

Clickbait will keep morphing from lists to quizzes to gifs to something else. It's kind of hard to kill.

How much time do you spend looking at things people link from Upworthy or Buzzfeed?

About 3 minutes a year, when there's a really good gallery of 100 cat photos on Buzzfeed. So 3/525600 of the time?

clickhole's main joke seems to be that other things are vacant and unfunny. well sure, but it's not a very good joke.

They've already been doing this for a little while with their slideshows on the onion. I'm not really ready (or cool enough) to write off clickhole after a few days. There have already been a couple of things that have made me laugh pretty hard.

i'm cool enough to write off clickhole, but i'm not, i'm laughing off of it

mattresslessness, Thursday, 19 June 2014 21:19 (five years ago) link

the best part of clickhole is the fact they have actual bullshit click-bait ads at the bottom that I keep thinking are satire

mh, Thursday, 19 June 2014 21:23 (five years ago) link

such a great part of it.

socki (s1ocki), Thursday, 19 June 2014 21:32 (five years ago) link

on their first day, I clicked on one thinking it'd be another satirical article, and it took several moments for me to realize I had gone to another site

mh, Thursday, 19 June 2014 21:38 (five years ago) link

i mean, i think a huge part of my enjoyment of clickhole is working in the media industry for 12 years and slowly watching the media outlets I love move from

http://www.villagevoice.com/2003-04-15/music/mr-and-mrs-used-to-be/

to

http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2013/04/hottest_dancing_coachella_gifs.php

Since the Onion itself has moved from making weekly satire to hourly clickbait, I'm guessing a lot of veterans of the staff are feeling the fatigue, and I imagine clickhole is coming from a very real place

macklemorange is the new wack (Whiney G. Weingarten), Thursday, 19 June 2014 21:38 (five years ago) link

I can imagine some humor writers who've finessed their craft for a decade could probably get a little bent out of shape at the Buzzfeeds, Crackeds, Chives, &c getting monster traffic by gaming the system as opposed to actually making better material.

Its something that a lot of music writers have been going through for the last few years (paging @maura)

I like cracked in that they'll put at least a modicum of actual research into their bits.

Also their ed-in-chief has admitted to writing some Clickhole jokes. I wonder how many AV Club/Dissolve writers have done the same.
