The past week has been an interesting one. I have been watching some YouTube videos in my free time and am shocked at what I have come across. For instance, I watched a Jimmy Kimmel video this past Thursday and I found it entertaining to watch a lot his new videos. I watched the videos of the Halloween challenge where parents ate all of their kids Halloween candy. I noticed that Jimmy Kimmel has made other funny videos that have to do with children and those are usually his biggest hits on YouTube. I feel like those are his big hits because people like to see the videos that remind them of their history; to be more specific, I mean they like to see their own memories repeat themselves. But the videos are about other kids, they do not have anything to do with persons' memories. So what do I mean? What I mean is that when people watch videos of kids they are reminded of their history/childhood. Accordingly, I can see why those videos are a big hit.
