MoBrosStudios was a popular video creator well known for creating videos known as YouTube Poop, YTP were video channels that included mash-ups of various shows that blended together a weird or funny story. People like such videos but the creators are playing a dangerous game because all of the footage
they are using is copyrighted and MoBrosStudios was no different. Because the creators used footage from SpongeBob Squarepants and other intellectual property, so received multiple copyright strikes from major companies like Viacom, resulting in the videos being taken down and despite MoBrosStudios trying to make a comeback in 2016, similar videos like before resulted in even more copyright strikes across the world, meaning his videos are lost. There are certain ways to dodge the copyright strikes but perhaps this creator felt not doing this was "living on the edge?"
Sandy Hook Surveillance Footage
Sandy Hook was one of the greatest tragedies in recent American history. The elementary school in Newtown Connecticut became the target for 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who murdered 20 six and seven-year-olds in 2012. And although footage of the CCTV emerged of Lanza at the school and was played out through much of the media despite much of the surveillance being redacted for understandable reasons. It is clear that the police held back much of the footage to not inflict such heartless barbarism on the public and more importantly to avoid the families of the murdered children seeing the deaths of their loved ones. However, in the internet day and age the lack of footage, or the video censored with a blue redacted label cause many people to speculate over whether the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax.
Columbine "Basement Tapes"
Another infamous school shooting was the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Jefferson County, Colorado in 1999. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 13 of their fellow students and wounded more than 20 others, raising much questions and debate in a nation divided by the Second Amendment, or the right to bear arms in the US. Many blamed games like Doom and the music of Marilyn Manson were blamed for the murderous designs of the two high school boys. Michael Moore even produced a documentary called Bowling for Columbine about the tragic massacre. However, more rumors circulate about the shooting, one of them being the "Basement Tapes." Allegedly this footage is a home video recording of Klebold and Harris filming themselves talking about which of their fellow students at Columbine High they would like to kill and a transcript exists of the video but the videos themselves are believed to have been destroyed or hidden by the FBI.
Mental illness is a dreadful blight on society and is often an unseen one too. Christine Chubbuck was a news anchor based in Florida who openly despised the sensationalized nature of news reporting, terming it "blood and guts media." Chubbuck suffered from depression and volunteered to do a piece for the station about mental illness and her research covered such things as asking police the most common gun used in suicides. One day in 1974, Chubbuck informed colleagues that she needed to read a piece before the usual news schedule and several minutes into the broadcast she faced one of the cameras, said: "latest blood and guts in living color," before shooting herself. This was on live television and because of that and the fact it was in the 70s, there are no known recordings of the incident and videos claiming to be footage of it are regularly debunked.
