I asked an AI for video ideas for other YouTubers. It went badly.

GPT-3: not quite up to the task. Yet. • ElectroBOOM: https://youtube.com/electroboom • Answer in Progress: https://youtube.com/answerinprogress • hbomberguy: https://youtube.com/hbomberguy • MrBeast: https://youtube.com/mrbeast6000

  3. D.A.n.K DF on April 28, 2021 at 12:04 am

    hbomberguy just has to come up with a new video idea for his own channel… we miss you Harry

  4. mikin lirou on April 28, 2021 at 12:05 am

    I genuinely want to see Sabrina make a "why buying pets is a scam" video though

  5. The Dire Tarrasque on April 28, 2021 at 12:09 am

    "How Introverts can be Awesome Leaders" is a video I need to see.

  6. TravisFabel on April 28, 2021 at 12:10 am

    You can thank that ending for another subscriber.. I watch all your videos, but him saying that made me realize that I never hit the button, or rang the bell.. and generally I dont comment to raise your interaction either, but youtube is perfectly balanced.

    Your old

  9. Jarski l on April 28, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I would have loved to see what ideas AI woukd give to Hydraulic press channel 😀

  10. Irgendwie Anders on April 28, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Subscribe.
    Finally someone said it…

  11. ICanPickLocks on April 28, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I thought I paid people to take selfies with me was a video already

  12. Retz on April 28, 2021 at 12:14 am

    7:15 make that title "The Last Of Us 2 Is Disappointing, And Here’s Why" and you’ll find hundreds of videos about that subject already.

  13. Serrated Milliner on April 28, 2021 at 12:16 am

    "The singularity is going to happen next week I assume"

    Video uploaded one week ago

    *sweats nervously*

  14. Isak Forsberg on April 28, 2021 at 12:16 am

    "Why being polite is not enough" sounds like a title aimed at "nice guys"

  15. David Hughes on April 28, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Wait, what are the worst titles?

  16. Karolina Pomian on April 28, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Plasma speaker is a thing. Electricity will produce plasma that has different sound based on the frequency of the current

  17. 4D Chess Player on April 28, 2021 at 12:19 am

    When your voice does not match your face, this is the poster boy

  18. ii8TheCookies on April 28, 2021 at 12:20 am

    11:53 is a quick synopsis for A4

  19. Hannah K on April 28, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I feel like you could get some interesting titles in the disability Youtube space, especially relating to things like missing limbs

  20. Jorge Martínez Blanco on April 28, 2021 at 12:21 am

    WE NEED MORE

  21. Zack Schmiesing on April 28, 2021 at 12:24 am

    I’m an EE and I said "What" about a second before Medhi reacted with the same thing.

  22. Trinh Khoa on April 28, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Captions now have collors???!???!?

  23. The EpicSlayer7 SSS on April 28, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Logic is just half of the puzzle of comprehension… it is like saying sugary foods taste good and salty foods taste good so making better tasting foods simply needs to mix them both… without knowing taste someone could think that, but in reality, it just taste horrible combined…in other words we think with more than logic and more than our five senses, a lot of perception goes on in thinking!

  24. SIDDHESH SHARMA on April 28, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Ok Boomers ! I am from Electroboom’s army 🙂

  25. JҼƑƑҼ ƊⱭƝƝⱭ • 69 nanoseconds ago on April 28, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Meanwhile, HowToBasic’s Titles starts with "How to" and followed by any dishes

  26. Gabe F on April 28, 2021 at 12:27 am

    A 3d printed plasma speaker sounds make-able.

  27. vogonp 42 on April 28, 2021 at 12:28 am

    8:09 It is ironic that an ai generates something about the uncanny valley.

  28. Kovimura on April 28, 2021 at 12:28 am

    3:00 that is an actual real device

  29. Tom Scott on April 28, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Thanks so much to everyone who got on a call with me! Unfortunately, I can’t take requests for other channels, but I’m sure someone’ll turn this idea into a web toy at some point.

  30. AdamofBlastWorks on April 28, 2021 at 12:31 am

    "How to watch the news without being horrified"

    PLEASE. I don’t stay up to date with actually important events happening in the world, because I often can’t bring myself to hear any of it.

  31. John Veitch on April 28, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Tom Scott hasn’t seen Sherlock?

  32. Epsilon Karamazov on April 28, 2021 at 12:33 am

    I wanna see GPT-3 tackle Guru Larry’s and Stuart Ashens’s channels.

  33. svampebob007 on April 28, 2021 at 12:34 am

    +50M subs handing out thousands of dollars, yet takes a video calls for a YouTube video with his fermented potato of a web cam, and shoestring mic

  34. Alex Kuczynski on April 28, 2021 at 12:37 am

    thank you for moving the captions up at around 6:30, so helpful

  35. Pablo Abella on April 28, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Oh this would be great for Drawfee

  36. SproutD on April 28, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Can you make a video on Angelina Ai

  37. Emily An on April 28, 2021 at 12:42 am

    "Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover event in history" Tom Scott in 2021:

  38. Ariel Schoonover on April 28, 2021 at 12:42 am

    The if I only had more time makeup challenge is probably what I’ll be attempting tomorrow 😂

  39. Shivansh on April 28, 2021 at 12:44 am

    The ending got me good xD

  40. Luggi 01 on April 28, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Jimmy is really a sympathetic guy!

  41. tim scheyhing on April 28, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Hbomberguy made the same look transition as Jesse Pinkman

  42. Eternal Phoenix on April 28, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Plot twist this video idea was made by the AI

  43. Sufiness on April 28, 2021 at 12:50 am

    I love how you *don’t* have music playing while you and your guests are talking. Thank you.

  44. Aldrin Sean Pereira on April 28, 2021 at 12:52 am

    The YouTubers in this video are such lovable humans

  45. D T on April 28, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Now I need a Tom Scott – Lindybeige cross-over and my life is complete

  46. Guigui on April 28, 2021 at 12:54 am

    1:11 I had to waste 17 minutes watching an Electroboom fail compilation. Thanks!

  47. allennxz2 on April 28, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Imagine having the money that mr beast have and still being heard that shitty in a videocall.

  48. Jarvis on April 28, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Ask VSAUSE, Everything works for that guy😐

    *Or does it?*

  49. Adam Rawlyk on April 28, 2021 at 12:57 am

    Ayyyyyyy, our bois collabed:0

  50. William Pepper on April 28, 2021 at 12:57 am

    Actually, all of the given suggestions for ElectroBoom make physical (if not practical) sense. Lemon Lime Lightning: I’ve seen plasma ball toys that would be at home in a Sprite commercial. Gold-plated banana plugs are a thing in audio equipment, so somebody is undoubtedly giving out awards. Tesla’s induction (i.e. brushless AC) motor is a thing that could be powered by a solar panel. Luckily 3D printing has not yet reached the point where we have to see the inevitable shocks, burns, and lung damage caused by printed plasma speakers.
