Did you know 1 in 3 bloggers will experience a haul video in their lifetime?
Despite extensive research, there is no known cure for the fucking idiots that make haul videos.
So – if you’re a blogger, you probably know what these abominations are. If you’re not, or don’t – a ‘Haul’ video is essentially a blogger who’s made a video about the contents of their shopping bag. Then showing the viewer said items, with a few comments as to why they bought it, and how much it cost.
Some of you will be aware of my dislike for the shit thing that was going on last year when everyone seemed to be making stupid ‘What’s in your handbag?’ Videos (my ‘response’ is here). Thankfully that craze is dying, but the haul video is spreading throughout blogging and generally making us all look like twats.
Seemingly no ‘shop’ is safe – Primark ‘Hauls’ are a bit thing, but equally I’ve seen beauty bloggers run through the tut they’ve bought at Superdrug, and even more ridiculous those who do ‘Grocery Shop Haul Videos’.
Seriously?! How is that a ‘THING’?!
I can’t muster the enthusiasm for my own fucking shopping, let alone muster it to hear about your ‘3 for 5 quid knickers’ from Primark or your ‘Bargain Lamb that’ll go in the slow cooker’.
Why would you think ANYONE gives a shit about it?
The worst thing about Haul Videos are that they are increasing, so many idiots get told at blogging conferences they are a ‘good idea’ because they get a lot of views on YouTube. That’s great! I’m sure making a sex tape with your partner would get a lot of views, or making a snuff video, doesn’t mean you should do it! Numbers and figures don’t make for good, satisfying content, it’s all smoke, mirrors and bullshit.
If you make Haul Videos.
