Google is Trying to Put a Stop to Unboxing Videos

Unboxing videos. You may hate them or love them, no matter what they are made for every product out there. I don’t really know what it is with unboxing videos especially nowadays when products come with the product, wall charger and USB cable. Nothing else usually.

I think there are a couple of reasons to do an unboxing video. You think you are super cool and what to show off to the world that you can afford to buy gadgets and you get them day one. The other thing is views. I’m talking YouTube views. Some of the unboxing videos out there get upwards of one million views! That’s insane.

There has even been a parody video out there to try and stop people from doing unboxing videos by showing how dumb they are. You can watch it here. But that doesn’t stop people from doing them. With the Nexus 7 just being released people have made unboxing videos. They best part of the videos is watching people struggle to unbox the Nexus 7. Someone has even put a montage of reviewers struggling to remove the Nexus 7 from the box. Google and Asus, we salute you for making products difficult to remove from their packaging. Hopefully after a couple times of failure and embarrassment, people will stop filming unboxing.
