I don't get the joke
I get the joke, I just don't get why it's a 2 minute video.
ClickHole seems hit and miss with their shit, sometimes they nail it but more often than not you get one small point of satire or social commentary drawn out way too long with no other substance to warrant it.
I think ClickHole is where the Onion sends writers who don't make the A list.
That's what the normal onion does, though. That's the onion's entire thing.
My theory is that Clickhole is what the writers of the little sight-based headlines on the front page started after the onion stopped paper printing. They were funny, but if context were to be added like a in normal article, they'd be less funny. Which I guess is what happened. But they're still fun to post on facebook for people who still think it's real, and clickbait or not, I clicked on it, so they win.
Maybe I don't get it because I never really see those "AMAZING! You WONT believe what these 3 EX-TERRORISTS have to say about painting a bedroom!!!" things, nor do I ever really click them.
So maybe I'm jut too cultured and highbrow to get this rather pedestrian joke.
Clickhole is hit or miss, but it's hits are way funnier than anything the Onion itself has done in the past decade or so.
Wow Oddeye, I'd like to live in that world. I never see them on here, but if I have to check Weather.com for the weather (ya, I used to use wunderground; did you know weather.com bought them out)? or Huffingtonpost (I know, Aljazeera's great but not always for US news) I have to see the things all the time.

A joke with no delivery or punchline? And Clickhole is an Onion site, you say?
Jokes have punchlines.
Not all comedy is jokes.
So what about delivery?
you have none

For those who don't get the joke, it's just a very dry (my favorite kind of comedy) parody of the endless series of "LESBIANS EXPLAIN" clickbait bullshit videos that are cancerously spreading across youtube and a lot of casual news media. It made me laugh and I think clickhole is nailing the dry parody thing much better than some of their overtly funny stuff, but whatevs.
At least it isn't a fucking MLP video, jesus people.
