Picture this. You're a newspaper boy in the 1880's and your headlines just don't seem to be selling as well as they used to. Therefore, your company decides to change things up and start lying just a LITTLE
...Well, at least of your definition of lying a LITTLE
bit is completely changing the título of your papers to something amusing and spreading misinformation just to rake in más cash from the public. And mine is!
So today, people. We're going to go dive headfirst into the world of clickbait. But first and foremost, the most important pregunta of them all. What exactly IS clickbait?
Are tu sure tu want to download ObviousVirus.exe?
It's filled with capital letters, bold text, exclamation marks, obvious lies, and is topped off not with a cherry, but an image that promotes false advertising most likely photo-shopped o edited in some way. Heck, if you've been on the internet for as little as two hours, then chances are, you've seen something like this before.
But for today, we're going to do something that's a tad out of the ordinary. Avant-garde, if tu will. Yes, I have fallen to the clickbait Gods, and have decided to come up with my own silly edited "leaks", "rumors", and "reveal" imágenes for your amusement. Hell, clickbaity imágenes in general are the topic of today, and I'm going to be making as many as I find suitable for my palette. *In other words, I'll be creating them depending on how long I can stay awake. If fanpop still has an image limit, then that's also a factor to take in.* *Also is totally not inspired por Alpharad in any way, shape, o form. But seriously though, although I did get the general idea from him, I will put as much of a twist on it as I can to make it my own. Alright? Good!*
And now, without further ado, let's kick this party into high gear! (Also, I'm coming up with these ideas completely randomly, so expect to see some weird flippin' stuff. XD) Lastly, I editar my imágenes with Pixlr.com! It is a fantastic free website that lets tu do so many things with ridiculous ease. It's not Photoshop levels of good, but it's the best free service I can think of. So a very special shout-out to Pixlr.com for making this articulo (and many of my thumbnails) a reality! And no, this isn't sponsored. XD Project Número One: WILL SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG TAKE OVER YOUTUBE!? :O
This is the first thing that came to my mind, for some reason. Sounds like I could make something good out of this, alrighty then! I think LGYCE is gonna like this one, eh fellas?
Just gotta get the obligatory emo background...
Can't have clickbait without the overreacting faces! :D
editar some things that tu most likely don't care about, and...WE'RE DONE! Let's see what I came up with. Also a shout-out to flamingtext.com! They're a great and easy way to get cool looking text if that's what tu want. Also not sponsored. XD
Sha-boom! Totally flawless.
Phew! That took surprisingly long, but it looks even crispier than Kentucky's signature Krispy Fried Chicken! :D
...God, what is with all this SPONSORING!? But in all seriousness, I like how this one turned out. If you're one EXTREMELY gullible Sonic the Hedgehog fan, then you'll eat this one right up!
And no, we're done referencing KFC, for God's sake. We're movin' on! XD Project Número Two: CONFIRMED LEAKS FOR NYARUKO-SAN IN SUPER SMASH BROTHERS 4!!!! :O
They don't pay me enough for this, ugh. *They don't pay me at ALL. XD*
Also, if tu don't know, Nyaruko-san is an anime character in a really good harem show. So, without further ado, let's get started on this one!
I went through a LOT of these for this one. Also, Nyaruko-san is best waifu. XD
Come on, tu can't make a Sm4sh leak without going HERE.
God, I amor Flamingtext. Again, NOT SPONSORED!
Polish this beauty up a bit, and....VOILA!
There's a totally realistic leak for Sm4sh!
I put a tad más stuff into it since we're not trying to fool anyone with this anyway. I mean, if tu honestly think that Nyaruko-san will make it into Sm4sh because of this, then tu probably aren't as smart as tu think tu are.
But regardless, since the goal of this wasn't to look like it came directly from the game, I added some cute stuff such as the Nature Border and the little chibi Nyaruko-san in the middle there. <3
This was a very subjective one, if anything. But God did I amor that anime, Nyaruko: Crawling with Love. If you're into funny harems, you'll amor it, but I digress. We're movin' on! Project Número Three: DONALD TRUMP ENDORSES BURGER KING!! :O
Man, I think of the weirdest shit....Seriously, WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!? But again, I digress.
This one actually looks quite funny, to be honest. Let's go!
Some easy stuff to do, tu guys get the point.
So, have I ever told tu guys about the time when I wrestled a peppermint? :D
God bless America! Wait, I just revealed where I live. OH NO.
Throw it all into the witch's cauldron, patch some stuff together, and....There we go!
God, this kills me. In a good way, though. XD
This one, like the others, was quite fun to make. Man, you'll be selling ALL the newspapers with this kind of entertaining (mis)information!
One last thing though. If someone walks up to you, is carrying a pitchfork and/or a torch, and has a look of "I want my money back" on their face, then tu might wanna start running. But hey, that's the price tu have to pay when tu use clickbait!
Project Número Four: ULTRA-DANK SUPER MARIO BROS 2 SPEED-RUN!!!!! :O
...Or if your name is Rebecca Black and wrote a song called Friday.
If tu don't know who Mario is, then I don't know what to tell ya. This one seems rather fun, as well as somewhat different due to it not falling under the Leaks, Rumors & Reveals categories. So, let's get to work!
The Overworld theme from this game is still stuck in my head.
To save myself from dying to Fanpop's image limit, I'm gonna cut the editing process short for this one. I just needed some PNG's, some MLG stuff, and a Hell of a lot of things that are indeed very dank. This image shall only be for the most hardcore of tryhards. Are tu ready? I sure wasn't. XD
This one surprisingly didn't take too long, and it turned out nice. Well, at least if your definition of nice is WHATEVER THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE. XD Project Número Five: PERSON RUNS MILE IN UNDER A MINUTE!!!! NEW RECORD CONFIRMED FT. KANYE WEST FOR SOME REASON
This one looks....Promising, to say the least. Let's get to it laddies!
Gotta have something to run on! *Whistles*
I could've sworn I dicho a PERSON....Ah, screw it. That is the rule of clickbait, lies!
Totally a human. And yeah, this website is great.
Fix some stuff up here, editar together.....VOILA! If this doesn't make the front page, nothing will.
For those who actually cared, his mile time was about as long as it took tu to blink just now.
Perfect. Stunning. I even got Kanye West in there with that totally a quote from Kanye West! :D
Oh, and a hot anime chick because why not. That's a staple of the Clickbait Art, at least if your gender qualifies as male. But anyway....
This concludes my very first Art Of Clickbait article! It's almost 4:00 in the morning as I write this, and I gotta say, this was one of the most fun artículos I've ever made, and I am very proud of it, as utterly stupid as that may sound.
But here's the exciting part. I'm going to make this into a series that I'll make a new articulo for every three weeks, always on a Friday. And I want tu guys to comentario below on what tu want me to make a clickbait image of! You'll not only get a shout-out in the article, but I'll create your request to the best of my ability. I'll start the artículos off though, as I have some ideas as well, but yeah.
I'm really looking adelante, hacia adelante to everyone's feedback! Please be nice to each other in the comentarios below, and don't forget to fan this articulo and Share it with a friend if tu really enjoyed it! Special Thanks To... *

Google Images, duh. *
Pixlr.com for my main fuente of editing. *
Alpharad for inspiring me to do something admittingly similar, but again, everything I write is completely done por me. I changed it up as much as I can, and I think I did a good job! *
Nyaruko-san for giving me the idea for this articulo in the first place. I was wondering what it would be like if she was in Super Smash Bros 4, and then it hit me! The idea of this series started because of the best anime waifu ever, hah. *
