Warning: This list actually gets pretty messed up.

List videos are some of the most popular kinds of videos online. The only problem is that if you keep making top 10 lists you will soon run out of things to, you know, list. It's at this point that channels can become a little desperate, and reach for things that probably shouldn't be in a fun listicle.

Needless to say, if the following videos are appearing in your recommended videos on YouTube, you're probably taken some wrong turns with your video choices...

"Top 10 Teens Life Sentence Reactions"

Hooboy, there's a lot to unpack here. First, this might be the most specific list video ever created. Second, whaaaaaatt??? This is compilation of teens reacting to being given life sentences - a pretty troubling thing for a person to choose to watch.

To further complicate things, the video is also the 'top 10' reactions, implying that these are the best ones? That there are others, but they aren't as fun to watch? What? What is going on?


Should it exist? - No.

"9 Dead YouTubers That Will Be Missed"

It's one to thing to report on a death, or even to make a video about a YouTubers life. But there's something very weird and messed up about taking real people's deaths ... and ranking them in a list.


Should it exist? - Hell no.

Behold: the most fucked up list video we've seen on YouTube

They literally made a whole new video just to capitalise on the murder of Christina Grimmie. Insane.


Should it exist? - Do you even have to ask?
