YouTube montages that piss me off

Posted on

Question: Do you ever search YouTube for a particular scene from a TV show or movie, think you’ve found it, then find yourself watching a crap montage set to an even crappier ballad and needing to slap someone?

In general, I’m not a huge fan of videos that set scenes to music.* (Though I will occasionally sit through one, if the creator’s literal interpretation of the song’s lyrics proves amusing enough.) That said, I can happily coexist with them if their posters would always label them clearly as a montage — and preferably with the song selection in the title or About This Video description. Too much to ask?

* If faced with a montage, I prefer slideshows, like the NINE-MINUTE tribute to David Boreanaz below.
