7. Fan theories
This type of click is often found in YouTube especially among the Otaku population.
Avid viewers of television series and Japanese anime have the tendency to hear the opinion of other people who share the same interests. Anime fans take another step further by developing their own theories.
Theories are always speculative. Therefore, anyone can make one as long as they sound convincing and ignite another fan’s imagination. Fans have the tendency to click on something they hope will happen in their favorite series.
Sometimes, titles get malicious and sound like, “Ash’s most difficult batter. Will Pikachu finally evolve?”. Another example is the theories every after release of One Piece like “Who will be the next strawhat?”
6. Aliens, monsters, and ghosts caught on camera
Since almost everyone owns a phone with a camera now, anyone can also claim that they have seen something mysterious and present the photos they caught as evidence.
For those who are not critical minded, this type of click bait is backed up with fabricated or manipulated photos or videos. Sightings of ghosts caught by electronic devices are most likely edited to scare people. If you notice, these kind of click baits surface online during Halloween or Holy Week.
Mythical creatures are also part of this genre. For once, Humortech has featured a mythical Cebu creature, the sigbin, which is found out to be another bear specie. See Weird Animal called “Sigbin” Found in Cebu for more info.
About aliens, should I say more? Don’t believe anything about the existence of aliens if the information is not coming from scientists — with the exception of Giorgio Tsoukalos and his alien friends of course.
