In a dark, strange corner of the internet, an unknown group of people on YouTube is wilfully hacking young brains in return for advertising revenue. In this TED Talk, writer and artist James Bridle uncovers truth about pointless, mind-numbing videos such as „surprise egg“ reveals and the „Finger Family Song“ and those algorithmically created mashups of familiar cartoon characters in violent situations.
