    depends on who is doing the video and what they are unboxing. I sometimes watch those videos to decide if i want to try out a subscription box, or not bother, whether I want to buy a collector's edition of a game, or not bother with it - its basically a way for me to gauge if i want to spend money on something, or give it a pass. that said its not something I watch all the time and whatever that vid above is, its definitely not what the vids i watch look like, heck, the only time I even see the person's face is when they introduce themselves and the box at the beginning and if its pertinent to whatever they are demoing out of the box so...

    edited to add, there is NOTHING wrong with taking an opinion of someone whose preferences are close to yours into account. but its not just about opinions, its also about seeing contents up close and personal. a lot of times, online listings do not give you enough information.

    One of the biggest channels on YouTube has this little kid who unboxes toys.

    I'm sure there are a lot of adults who help out behind the scenes.

    Oh and by the way views alone =/= $$$$ money anymore it’s why so many cried about being demonized. On YouTube

    Yes someone unboxing stupid shit is equal to that loser Pewdiepie.
    Watching unboxing and ASMR videos aren't a hobby.

    It's mindlessly clicking and viewing for how many minutes straight for extra dopamine like the overstimulated shit you are.

    PewDiePie at least brings jokes and relevant news to his content. Though, I guess hating on whatever's popular is a trend so w/e lmao

    Unlike unboxings and ASMR though. Hobbies deserve to be criticised because many just reduce you to being a mindless drone so people can make easy money off of you.

    No Pewdiepie is a racist idiotic moron who seeks attention doing stupid shit for clicks. At least ASMR actually qualifies as an interest. Which is why attention whores like pewdiepie gravitate towards other communities like ASMR for more click views.

    I suppose a lot of it can be attributed to the obsession with oversharing that many indulge in. From what I've seen, most unboxing videos consist of blatant overreactions such as grown men screaming. It's all very weird to me but each to their own, I suppose.

    Note how many time she has to adjust herself. I think her boobs are too big for that outfit.

Even the lowest of the low forms of reality television shows have more entertaining shit going on than this.

    Entertainment value wise, i'd rank unboxing videos a good bit below reality TV shows and very, very slightly above watching paint dry.
    I remember sodapoppin doing that every friday on twitch i dont think he does it no more.

    ...I might actually watch that.

    "Man fuck this fucking blender **carefully wraps cord** and this whole piece of shit company **places top part back in plastic bag** and the whole fucking idea of blending shit!" **gingerly places back in cardboard cutout**

    ...I'm concerned about what that says about me, tbh.

    A White Supremacist shot up a place of worship and promoted Pewdiepie. Yeah unboxing video are far superior in content.

    For your reaction, lol. You're giving him the reaction he wants.

    If someone were to go shoot up a mall and yell "I LOVE DOCTOR AMADEUS FROM MMO-C", does that make you a nazi?

    Seriously. I don't know you, but I know for a fact you're better and smarter than that. Please, learn to stop thinking and saying what online media tells you to say and think.

    I watch some of them b/c I'm tired of the marketing ploys to make devices seem more quality than they really are.

    Just because it can share the joy of obtaining a new equipment. Good thing.
