Cringe! 5 truly embarrassing YouTube music videos

They’ve got problems too, except they’re hot.

Hot Problems by teen pair Double Take was released in April 2012 and very soon launched the ‘singers’ to YouTube’s hall of fame.

The original Hot Problems upload was released via the OldBaileyProductions YouTube channel and managed to climb its way to 2 million video views and over 80,000 dislikes. Sadly, the original video has since been removed, but there’s various copies and parodies online still.

Shortly after its release on YouTube, Hot Problems was put up for sale on iTunes, with tech website MSN posting an article soon after questioning if the song was legit or just an elaborate joke.

Whatever Hot Problems is, we love it. That’s all that matters.

I Screaming Inside My Head – Treatsforbeasts

Views: 12,000

Dislikes: 4

He’s screaming. Inside his head.

I Screaming Inside My Head is lesser known than the other tracks on our list, but it’s still a worthy addition.

The dark, semi-disturbing music video sees a mysterious man sat against a tree contemplating life. After a whole load of plays, we’ve fallen in love with the out-of-sync synth beat running in the background of the tune.

Tube Chum is pretty certain that this joke was actually made as a joke, unlike some of the other tracks we’ve featured. Even so, we got plenty of laughs out of Treatsforbeasts’ efforts. Treat yourself to a listen.

My Jeans – Jenna Rose

Views: 212,000

Dislikes: 3,000

She can go anywhere in her jeans, you know.

Dropping in 2010, Jenna Roses’ My Jeans tune has been compared countless times with Friday by Rebecca Black, which admittedly looks and sounds just as bad.

“Everyone can look at me in my jeans. I can go anywhere I want in my jeans”, Jenna proudly sings with her friends in her bedroom.

We’d like to give a deserving nod to the rap section of the track that’s forced in halfway through the music video. Our favourite line has to be ‘A B C, 1 2 3, that girl wore her jeans like me’. Top effort.
