Youtube Highlights: Youtube was naughty and suddenly CATS!?

Here we go, another week of youtube highlights, and we have to start off on a sad note. Buckle up.

Doug Walker and Channel Awesome seemingly ran afoul of youtube's automated systems this past month, and lost monetisation for their videos. He put up the following appeal.

Less than 4 hours later, they got their monetisation back. Youtube really needs to get is act together, but in the meantime, your best plan is to go public if you have a problem with your account and copyright.

NerdSync had a very similar experience.

BanditIncorporated also had a lot to say about this.

Speaking of youtubers being subject to copyright claims by corporations, Super Bunnyhop has done a video defending online-only multi-player.

SciShow meanwhile did a video on cancer misconceptions. Please note, this post went up BEFORE I heard about Sir Terry Wogan passing this morning.

Almost, but not really, on the same theme, we have The Film Theorists. Here they ruin the ending of Dark Knight Rises with science. Although, it was pretty ruined before they got there, to be fair.

And finally, ever hear of cyriak? You probably have seen at least a few of his animations, they tend to stick in the mind. Well, he did a music video for the RunTheJewels track "Meowpurrdy”, where they rap over kitten sounds. The whole album is like that, apparently.

So........yeah. I feel like I'm falling down a rabbit hole on this one.

Anywho, here it is. This is proper rap music, so expect some very NSFW words, but I don't think you'll notice.

I apologise for your nightmares.
