Longest Time Getting To The Point Video Award

For Youtube or any other web based video presentation.
  [vote for,

Everybody loves going to a video on how to sharpen a pencil for instance, and waiting for 15 minutes while the guy introduces himself, thanks the viewer for tuning in and asks them to like and subscribe. Typically after 3 or 4 hours of introductions though these get kind of tedious.

The idea is for Youtube to create an algorithm that can sense how long the bla bla bla intro is and put a picture of a trophy for "Longest Intro" by the title so people can settle in, get a bag of popcorn, make a cocktail and get ready to hear how John from New Brunswick got into sharpening pencils years ago while working as a teachers assistant.

       Lately I have found Youtube to be much more of a learning experience and hence worth watching, than PBS or any other TV crap. And yes, I don't even mind skipping the ads when necessary. But I got to tell you, the intros are freaking ridiculous. I wanted to learn about side effects other people had experienced taking a certain Nootropic. Good heavens and God, by the time one of the creators got to the good stuff, I had forgotten what I was even looking for. (Hence the reason for the Nootropic.)   

       So yes, I feel your pain. I'd avoid one of those trophies like the plague.

       I've got a youtube channel I put up years ago for a little art piece I put together. Got about 700k views but never did anything else. Maybe I'll put up a video on how to get to the point and see how long I can delay getting to the point.   

       "Hi, and thank you for watching my video on how important it is to get the the point of your video, I'm doctorremulac3, please like and subscribe because if I get to 100 million hits I stand to make three or four bucks. Also be sure to subscribe to my podcast and email monthly letter on getting to the point. You can also watch some of my other videos on getting to the point and I'm thinking of setting up a channel that's dedicated solely to videos showing how very important it is to get to the point. Additionally, you can look at some of the links below to other resources to help you make videos that get directly to the point and see some great examples of videos that get right to the point instead of that maddening meandering on and on without actually doing what we came to that video for.   

       Okay, that's all the time we have for today, so if you enjoyed this video be sure to like and subscribe and tune in next week when I'll look into some other ways you can get right to the point in your videos. I'm doctorremulac3, thanks for watching!"
