Anyone familiar with the vast expanse of the Internet knows that the comment sections of online media are sometimes far more entertaining than the actual media being consumed.
A quick glance at the comments of almost any good post on Reddit or YouTube will confirm the aforementioned supposition. Citizens of the Internet will also be familiar with how quickly heated arguments escalate, especially on YouTube.
Dead Parrot, a new United Kingdom based comedy network on YouTube, have taken it upon themselves to dramatise terrible YouTube comments and flame wars in their web series ‘YouTube Comment Reconstruction’.
The series follows distinguished British actors Grahame Edwards and Eryl Lloyd Parry as they reenact verbatim arguments that occur in the comment section of YouTube videos.
The results are often stupendously hilarious, especially when nonsensical ‘spam bot’ comments interrupt the main arguments.
Embedded below are two of the best YouTube Comment Reconstruction videos, one dealing with Nelson Mandela and the other with Fireman and Kittens. Enjoy!
