YouTube Titles

Over the past several months I've noticed that YouTube has stopped giving all the prominent space to CBS. This must mean that CBS has lost some of its viewers cause they've now started titling their clips provocatively.

I am a fan of Craig Ferguson clips. This week, however, i've noticed that the titles don't really match the major content in the clips. Take the title Britney Hoo-Ha Flashing Alert. This is clip is talking about the newest gadgets on display. This is the joke of ONE gag out of many. When i took my writing classes, i was always told the title encompassed what the paper was about. Apparently this doesn't work for film because titles on YouTube tell you bugger ALL!
