  • - All right, step one for avoiding clickbait,

  • Consider the source.

  • See the name of the website that published that clickbait?

  • - Www.bickclait.com, what's so wrong with that?

  • Sounds like a journalistic outlet with integrity to me

  • - Rearrange the letters in blickclait dude.

  • What does it spell?

  • - TNT explosion?

  • - What? No, dude. It's clickbait.

  • - Ah yeah, I probably should have guessed that.

  • - But it's not always gonna be that obvious either.

  • Every time you find yourself about to click

  • on something that feels too sensationalist to be true,

  • ask yourself, Do I know and trust this publisher?

  • - Got it. So I won't click on this article

  • Instead, I'll click on this related article,

  • entitled, 27 ways to stop TNT from exploding.

  • You won't believe dot dot dot...

  • - Orange. No.

  • - But they couldn't fit the whole title on there.

  • What does the dot dot dot mean Pear?

  • What won't I believe?

  • It could be anything.

  • - Dude. This is a classic Example for step number two.

  • Do not click on related articles either.

  • If a site presents you with clickbait,

  • it probably means they're not doing a good job

  • of curating quality content across the board.

  • - Pear, my brain hears and agrees

  • with everything you're saying.

  • - I'm glad to hear it.

  • - But my body's telling me yes.

  • - Orange, NO

  • - Yes

  • - No

  • - Yes

  • - That's it, time for step three.

  • Have some self control.

  • - I can't help it.

  • I gotta know what comes after the dot dot dot Pear.

  • There might even be a fourth dot.

  • - If you can't stop yourself from clicking on clickbait

  • then you'll need outside help.

  • - (fake crying) Yes, help me Pear.

  • - Very well.

  • - Wow, this silence is really nice.

  • Should have done that along time ago.

  • Well now that we've successfully avoided that clickbait

  • now it's time for me to relax.

  • Dude I know you wanna click on it, but...

  • - [ Mumbling] Pear, you fool,

  • we need a way to stop that TNT from exploding.

  • Is it giving you 27 ways to solve this crisis?

  • Heck, I'll just take one.

  • - Hmmm, okay, I have good news and bad news.
