    "It's worth noting that "best" is extremely subjective. While Justin Bieber's channel is extremely popular, sure, if you don't like his music you're not going to like his channel. I certainly don't, so I'd actually call this one of the worst YouTube Channels around."

Otherwise this solution is actually worse than a link to watching paint dry because at least with that something happens."

    "This is an accurate description of Whindersson Nunes Batista’s video concepts that he creates. It accurately depicts that the videos the viewer will see are purely fictional and have no basis for anything other than entertainment. The last sentence allows the viewer to see that he has many supporters of his artistic creations and intrigues to at least see what his videos consist of. Perhaps additional information about what his videos are about that creates such a following would be helpful."
