YouTube Parties
This reminds me of that video where asasas... no? How have you not seen that? Oh man, let me find it. No, it's ok, we can go back to your video later.

Explanation

The problem with YouTube parties is that no one is paying attention to your video, instead they are thinking of their next video to play and possibly interrupting your video to show their video. But, of course, the cycle repeats itself with the next person.

Oh god, is this what other people do to me when I'm showing a video at a youtube party? Gaaaah. Davidy²²[talk] 09:26, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Is a YouTube party a real thing? I've never heard of one. 70.24.167.3 23:26, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi 70.24.167.3 -- they totally are a real thing !! -- however you need a special invitation from the secret society, I can email you one if you want. 10.0.0.1 25:12, 32 December 2013 (UTC) Spongebog (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
Don't worry here is a invitation 172.16.10.123 23:12, 1 December 2013 (UTC) Spongebog (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
I'd say most "YouTube parties" are just coincidental gatherings of people in front of a computer, e.g. during any other kind of party, or in an office break. As for the explanation given here, I don't see the comic being "unclear whether they realize it". They don't realize it, everybody thinks his video will blow the others' minds. --YMS (talk) 20:05, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
