Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that some home videos show people getting hurt. Many of the clips are practical jokes that are degrading and some cross the line when it comes to the ethical treatment of animals. Videos also poke fun at normal kid behavior.
- Sexual Content
- Nudity and implied sexual behavior. Blurred body parts.
- People are frequently shown being injured or inflicting injury on someone else.
- Occasional inappropriate language is bleeped.
- Social Behavior
- This show (and others like it) encourage viewers to laugh at others' misfortunes -- which doesn't seem so bad when it's a mild pratfall but is much iffier when the clip makes it look like someone really got hurt. Some of the clips feature degrading practical jokes and questionable treatment of animals.
