Adam Ruins Everything – Why Cat Videos Rule the Internet (Everyday Ruins) | truTV


We all know cat videos
rule the Internet, but have you ever wondered why?
We all know cat videos In America, more households
have dogs than cats, but online,
we’re all feline fanatics. It’s because cats’ lack
of visible emotion allows us to see what we want, so we can project
all of our feelings onto them, like confusion or hunger or grumpiness
at our annoying co-worker John, who keeps stealing our pens
and then not returning them, as though I don’t need pens. I mean, I do need to write.
I am a writer. We have to write scripts.
I must have pens! [ Breathes deeply ] Cats aren’t the only animals
[ Breathes deeply ] who hold humans hostage
with their mysterious mugs. For example, in Uganda,
chickens go viral. To members
of Ugandan farming communities, the familiarity
of chickens and goats makes them more relatable
and intriguing than cats. So, while we’re passing around
our cat videos, they’re busy laughing
at chickens in sneakers. [ Chuckling ]
And I mean, they got a point. Look at that dumb chicken. Chickens don’t need shoes. What? Is that chicken
gonna go play basketball? You can’t dribble without hands,
chicken! [ Chuckling ]
Oh, man, Ugandans are right — that chicken’s hilarious. ♪♪

  24. Adam are you okay

  25. I genuinely dont enjoy cat videos.

  26. It's not simply because they're cute and have mysterious faces. It's because cat people are more likely to be bored indoors and online while people with dogs are more likely to be out of the house. Plus it's family friendly content that takes minimal effort to produce with zero question to copyright. And with the way youtube's recommendation algorithm works if you watch one then a hundred more pop up.

  28. Someone point me to Ugandan Chicken YouTube, please

  65. Ugandans love chicken, they love UGANDAN KNUKLES

  66. dOn'T bULLy ThE cHiCKeN! >:^(

  67. Adam do me a favor and ruin “magnetic therapy”. There are too many scams selling “magnetized water” and selling dumb products like “therapeutic magnetic bracelets”. I know their fake and it’s sad how people buy into it. Also, it’ll make a great video 🙂

  68. Ugandan chicken is a dead meme.

  71. It's not that cats don't have visible emotions, it's that they have more-or-less kept the natural body language of their wild ancestors, while dogs have adopted much of the body language of their human masters.

  73. Uganda wins the internet.

  74. Memes run the internet actualyy

  75. Wa did de sheken cros da roode

    To get away from this stupid joke

  76. Thank you Adam for ruining my life! I'm now addicted to chicken videos!

  77. Dogs understand our emotions..cats dont..beyond happy or sad..BUT to sense how it affects them as in if we're in a good mood they are more likely to get treats and affection aka it'll benefit them..they think it has to do with the fact dogs have been around for 30,000 years while cats have been around only 10,000..interesting fact..a place in Europe is doing a thing where they only breed the most submissive foxes and the more generations theyve done it the more they look like dogs..cats are the more popular pet than dogs interestingly enough tho while max is the most registered dog name..like dogs are assured in their role as predator while cats are not since they can be predator and prey hence the 50/50 of the belly rub lol..big animal person as you can see ? I have a black dauchaun cockerspaniel named max(well) and a black cat named briar (rose)❤

  78. There's no rule that says a chicken CAN'T play basketball…

  79. Cats might rule the internet, but dogs rule my heart.

  86. That was very mean against chickens
