This Video was made by one of my friend as a joke. But he did receive a lot of criticisms.. I did find it funny and I think that it was indeed a good idea. What do you say?https://www.youtube.com...

I accept.
Firstly, I think that this video was not funny or amusing... at all.
It was unrealistic- I understand that the video was meant to be a joke, but it just was too "cheesy". the music seemed to be too satyrical. I found that the "demons" were somewhat disturbing (pedo faces), hardly amusing.

I would also like to argue that a video being funny or not is based on subjectivity- there is no one right answer.
There you go, I having stated my OP. I look forward to my adversary's response

Lol thank you for your suggestions :D i just needed an insight to why people did not find it funny!! I shall tell my friend about your expert comments! :D

Con

Um... ok?
If I can make some suggestions, try not to go for the satyrical type of funny. There will always be haters out there. If the video was more professionally done and portrayed a more serious and scary tone, people might think better of the video.

I was hoping that you would talk about why you thought it was funny ....

I guess it was the element of surprise :D... while sharing it to me he said that it was scary and so I did not even wish to see :D..somehow he compelled me to watch and I ended up laughing :D
NiamC

Con

Well in that scenario, you would have experienced an element of surprise given that you were told that it would be scary. But for me, I was not expecting any surprises apart from disappointment given that you stated in R1that it was joke. Therefore, I didnt find it interesting.
Anything else?

okay... um... lol.
This wasn't even a debate- maybe you should have put this is one of the forums. I might sub, but will it benefit me much.
I look forward to watching any remakes of this video.

Moving on.

Btw, I just wanted to post this video, shameless advertising :p You should listen to it- if you like classical music shiz.

The "funny guys" didnt appear straight away... it was like 20 seconds or something into the video.

well, you stated that the video was meant to be a joke, I saw this and willingly opened the link knowing what to expect- a poor attempt at humour.

Well, speaking for the topic my point is that the idea behind this is to surprise people expecting something scary. They open the link and boom they see the funny guys doin' their stupid moves :D I laughed for hours after i saw it :D

Reasons for voting decision: Not... really a debate. It seemed like Pro was just asking for input. Con effectively showed that even the subjective reasons why it might be considered funny are off base, and Pro seemed to accept them. He did forfeit his last round, so conduct also goes to Con.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Con, due to Pro forfeiting the final round. S&G - Tie, neither made any major spelling or grammatical errors. Arguments - Con. Pro completely failed to justify her position, and instead seemed to be looking for criticism/advise by the end of the debate. This isn't even close to Pro upholding her end of the resolution, but in fact, it's as if she conceeded the debate in Round 4. For these reasons, arguments go to Con. Sources - Tie. Neither really utilized sources throughout this debate. This was a clear win for Con.
