So, CNN has partnered with BuzzFeed for a new YouTube channel, and the first video is narrated by Ze Frank. Perhaps most incredibly this is neither a supercut or a top ten list, but rather an examination of why rescue moments on TV capture people’s attention.
For some reason, this partnership reminded me of a funny (but unrelated) quip Jason Kottke made last week: “This is how Millennials watch TV, BTW…it’s all animated GIFs with YouTube video soundtracks. Civilization is gonna be juuuuuuust fine.”
If either of those paragraphs makes 100% sense to you, and you’re not offended, congratulations you spend too much time on the Internet much like ourselves. Yay!
