Clickbait Pandemic is an Anomaly happening on YouTube right now. YouTube hasn’t solved their Elsagate problem yet, but here is another hindrance to making this place feel safe.
These YouTube channels are preying on Geeks who just want to watch a trailer of an upcoming movie from big franchises like Marvel and DC. They also scam fans of canceled TV shows that there will be a new Season. They can do these fake trailers by using the previous movies of actors of upcoming films and editing them with footage from unrelated movies to make these fake trailers.
I don’t mind fake trailers if they are nothing but fan concepts, but these fake trailers are clearly clickbaiting people. The most annoying part is that these channels even got verified by YouTube.
Screen Culture, an Indian channel, is one of the most likely suspects. So many people got duped into thinking this Indian clickbait channel was authentic because it was verified.
Clickbait is the name of the Business for Screen Culture
How can a scammy bootleg trailer channel like this one get verified in the world? That means these clickbait channels are making money from these copyrighted materials. These fake trailer channels seemed to be an elaborate group of content farms. A single content creator won’t be able to make these because it will be overwhelming for one person.
Even though the Agatha House of Harkness doesn’t have a trailer or teaser. Many individuals have nevertheless got deceived into watching these bootleg edits.
If you do not want to be scammed by these fake trailer channels, Just subscribe to the official YouTube channels of Film companies, TV Networks and Streaming services. I have nothing against fan trailers if the title and description says it is but these clickbaiters are telling people they are real.
