YouTube Commenters Have Never Sounded More Melodramatic

Posted: Updated:

Recently, Google has made efforts to clean up comments on YouTube, most notably forcing would-be trolls to sign in to the video site with their Google+ accounts. The Google+ integration is aimed at civilizing a commenting culture often the subject of ridicule elsewhere online.

But thankfully, a web series from YouTube user Dead Parrot immortalizes the comments as they were and as we absolutely love them to be. It debuted with a simple premise: Elderly, well-to-do men in suits read off absurd conversations with the gravity of actors from PBS’s "Masterpiece Theatre."

The latest episode reenacts commenters on a video of a fireman rescuing a cat -- basically, the most innocent of videos. But since this is a word-for-word transcription of YouTube comments, it's therefore necessarily immature and NSFW. But you probably knew that.
