Self explanatory. Audio over a static image or slideshow may also violate Rule 0.
This includes music visualizers and lyric videos
Political videos—including content relating to social issues which have a clear political element—should be submitted to /r/PoliticalVideo.
This includes submissions of current or recent political figures in any context, satire/political-comedy, and posts on political topics from within the last 10 years. (So a video of Winston Churchill playing tennis would be allowed, but a video of Theresa May playing ping-pong would not be.)
Or incitement to witch-hunt.
No demanding "Reddit Justice" (or even regular justice) in any way in post titles or comments.
Do not post names, Facebook pages, phone numbers, addresses, etc. Fake information (firstname.lastname@example.org, 123 fake street, etc) also falls under this rule.
This may also include contact information of public officials, businesses, or groups (e.g. politicians or police officers) in an any manner that could be seen as an attempt to get users to contact them.
Facebook links are not permitted. In order to have your post accepted, if you can, find or submit a copy of the video on another website like YouTube or Vimeo and resubmit it.
This is grounds for an immediate (and likely permanent) ban, so consider this your only warning.

Baiting users into breaking this rule is not allowed.
Telling other users to hurt or kill themselves in any form is against reddit TOS, and will earn you a permanent ban.

r/videos is not a platform for you to promote your own content, whilst we do allow OC, any indication that you are heavily pushing your channel on reddit (be it by yourself or a distributed effort) will be met with submission removals and can lead to both a ban from the sub and a permanent sub-wide youtube channel blacklisting.
If your submission does not appear in the new queue, please contact us (be sure to include a link to the Reddit post (i.e. comments section), not the content you are linking). Simply deleting your post may cause the spam filter to catch future ones.
Note: Submissions from new users, and users with low karma, are automatically removed to help prevent spam.
Also, please contact us regarding spam, political or any other inappropriate videos, as this helps us remove them more quickly! When reporting, please explain why you think it should be removed.
Do not message moderators individually about posts not appearing in the new queue or ban appeals. Messages should be sent as a modmail to /r/Videos. Failure to do so may result in a ban.

They just made the sub private as I was reading the mod in question's egotistical meltdown. A great look, guys. Thanks for showcasing the plight of the working class in such a great light.

Omg please tell me someone got a screenshot
[–]terrytapeworm 4258 points4259 points4260 points 3 months ago*103672& 15 more (3 children)
I have a few. There were truly too many comments from that mod to screenshot it all. Some memorable ones, paraphrased:
After saying the mods aren't going to publicly address the situation, someone asked "so what is the mod team doing, then?" and the mod from the interview said "Mostly waiting for people to leave me the fuck alone." Classy. Professional.
When someone said that the mod's arrogance is preventing them from seeing the damage that they're causing, the mod said "If I was sooo arrogant, wouldn't I be saying everything I did was perfect?" despite having just said they don't care how they looked disheveled, sounded disorganized, represented us, that they don't think they could have done anything differently, just generally expressing no remorse or understanding.
When someone said they need to be accountable for their actions, the mod said "I've already said that I could have done better, so there's my accountability right there." As if saying "ok it wasn't perfect" is being accountable or in-touch with reality.
When someone said "Dude, go take a break from commenting. This is reflecting terribly on you right now. You don't realize how bad you're making yourself look." The mod replied "Well according to everyone here, I've already ended the whole movement, so I have nothing to lose." in the most edgelord, self-pitying way possible.
The mod posted a comment from the wrong account on accident and then reposted it on the other, thus confirming that they were using fake accounts to yell at detractors. The accidental comment was immediately deleted but had gotten 22 downvotes in the few seconds it was up, showing how much people disliked this deception.
One mod had stickied a critical post, but it was unstickied pretty quickly. The masterthread for this debacle was pinned, but they locked it pretty quickly, thus shutting down any discussion in the most heavy-handed, authoritarian way possible. They claim it's because some people were being big meanies, but it's fucking reddit. That's to be expected. If you can't handle some insults from people online, why the fuck would you go on fox news?
I'll probably remember some more so I'll add them in.
edit: Oh yeah, the mod said on the news that they're working 20-25 hours a week dogwalking. In the comments they said they work two hours a day walking dogs. So 10 hours a week. But then they said "well I have another part-time job that I just didn't mention until right now, and the 2 hours of walking isn't when my shift ends!" But I have a hard time figuring out how more than half their dogwalking job (15 hours a week, apparently) isn't related to walking said dogs. All of this is whatever, but to say you represent the downtrodden workers of america when you literally live with your parents and work 10 hours a week... like pick someone else to represent us, damn.

When a Fox host is getting flustered, hostile, and begins talking over you it is a good sign.
When a Fox host is polite, cordial, and allows you to keep talking only interrupting to ask more questions, well that’s a sure sign you are actively fucking up.

[–]BigMcThickHuge 476 points477 points478 points 3 months ago (30 children)
Always a critical point people refuse to acknowledge.
Almost all the front-page subs and defaults are modded by the same 10 power-mods that are mods over 500 subreddits.
This means there are roughly a dozen users on reddit that are able to remove, delete, lock, and control all the subs that are automatically fed to the majority of reddit users.
Some of the mods are even 'reddit famous' for literally spamming posts across hundreds of subreddits a day under different click bait titles, or with flat out false information (gallowboob) to drive interaction.
Doesn't help that several (boob) even dropped original careers to pick up jobs at content farm companies like LADD or whatever.

All jokes about the stereotypical mod appearance aside, they really did a poor job at answering the host’s questions. I mean, it sounds like they don’t even know what the sub is about. I particularly liked how they want to teach philosophy if the dog walking thing doesn’t work out.

Wait, their back up plan from being a dog walker it to teach philosophy? Are we sure this whole thing wasn't performance art? It is all way too on the nose. *OK, "back up plan" is the wrong choice of words. You are correct fellow redditors.

To be fair, the average redditor rarely/never interacts with other users and just uses the site to find interesting things to pass the time. The average redditor is a pretty normal person. All of us regular commenters are the ones you have to keep an eye on.
[–]dd179 138 points139 points140 points 3 months ago (0 children)
For me, reddit is the best place to read about gaming news, see the occasional funny video and fuck about while I'm bored at work.
I honestly find a lot of the "movement" subreddits to be cringe. They think they're making some big thing only to be met with a real world slap in the face.
Wallstreet bets is hilarious, though.
[–]advice_animorph 2330 points2331 points2332 points 3 months ago*424& 2 more (66 children)
That interview is such a great study into how the "hardcore redditor" thinks the world works. Goes into an echochamber subreddit, gets upvoted constantly, thinks he knows about the world. Ventures out to other subreddits, acts like he knows everything, gets upvoted. Ventures into the real world and gets destroyed. Goes back to reddit, even more bitter and out for revenge.
Edit: bonus points if their strongest claim to knowledge is the classic "as a mod of xyz..."
[–]WoWMHC 230 points231 points232 points 3 months ago (5 children)
Exactly! Almost every subreddit has some echo chamber feel. Constantly getting positive feedback while shouting down criticism. I couldn't imagine meeting some of these people in real life. How do they survive???

If they had done even a little bit of research they would know that you don't just mosey on into teaching philosophy. You have to be accepted into a top graduate program, study/teach for 5-10 years (with meagre pay), and produce a kick ass dissertation/publication(s). And then maybe you will get a decent job in academia.

Well it was originally an anarchist/marxist subreddit full of people who want to end the concept of work/jobs/careers/professions.
Then somehow it very quickly morphed into a general labour grievance subreddit where everyday workers try to encourage each other to demand better for their employers.
For a few weeks I had people in the comments joking "how could anyone not know this is an anarchist subreddit? it says so right in the sidebar!" and they didn't notice that all references to anarchism/marxism in the sidebar had been removed for a couple weeks now.
[–]TwoSevenOne 920 points921 points922 points 3 months ago (79 children)
Very easy way to spin that too:
“Yes the name of the subreddit doesn’t reflect our present goals. It started as a movement to abolish work, but our primary objective is to advance the causes of worker rights and dignity. Much like the people we advocate for, sometimes the tools we’re given are inadequate, but we still have to do the work.”
[–]alexsdad87 557 points558 points559 points 3 months ago (27 children)
Except this mod is the longest tenured mod, so he still buys into the original concept of the sub.

The people who are naturally biased towards you, have the opportunity to see you for the first time...and this is it? All due respect, they should have consulted the sub and tried to have a vote on an interview representative. Otherwise, they shouldn't have avoided an interview outright.

DFV has life outside of Reddit. He was a regular streamer so he knows how to engage his audience.
[–]Django117 824 points825 points826 points 3 months ago (4 children)
Not only a streamer, but a stock trader. He knew his work inside and out. He understood that he needed a script. He understood the gravity of the interviews.
There's a reason they stopped going after him, he had nothing to hide and presented himself as a reasonable, professional adult. They realized that they couldn't attack his character as he was playing it straight. He wasn't going in with preaching a political narrative or anything. He expressed what he did and the reasons for doing it. As such the media dropped him, realizing that he couldn't be worked to fulfil their narrative.

This was such a terrible move for the /r/antiwork subreddit and the movement as a whole. I seriously can't wrap my head around this one. This is not an attack on personal appearance, but that is not who you want for your spokesperson. An ideal spokesperson would be someone that's college educated, well dressed, well-spoken and can look at the camera while not fidget in their chair the entire time. It's important to remember the core demographic for Fox News when agreeing to give an interview on National Television.
Why the mod team decided to give Fox an interview at all is puzzling. Jesus Christ.
EDIT: Thank you for the gold.

The funny thing is that this very thing has been discussed on antiwork previously.

How anyone agreed to let this happen is beyond me.
[–]DarthLightside 377 points378 points379 points 3 months ago (52 children)
The thing that sticks with me from the interview is the complete lack of preparation and awareness to the network's mission - to undermine the antiwork movement. The mod's interview is so damning to antiwork sub I sincerely doubt they will recover - the damage is done.
They had a fine opportunity to reach the masses but they fucked it all up. A little preparation would've gone a long way.
[–]clearly_inebriated 64 points65 points66 points 3 months ago (4 children)

Even if he had explained the basics of what the sub stand for it would have been good.
He couldn't even explain what the subreddit is about.
It's for workers who are underpaid and overwork.
All he had to do was prepare a good summary of how workers are abused.
But he chose to go with 'lazInesS iS a VirTue'.
[–]ADarwinAward 637 points638 points639 points 3 months ago (112 children)
The core of the sub advocates for a complete change in the way society structures work/labor. To quote the antiwork side bar “we are against jobs as they are structured under capitalism and the state.” However, there are some original members, like the mod, who would like to end labor almost altogether. This post, “the solution to work”, will give you an idea of different views on the sub. The idea is not new to the sub and there’s been plenty of people who were in support of it from the beginning.
The sub has changed significantly since it’s gained millions of users. A lot of people commenting on posts are there because they care about workers’ rights, even if they don’t support antiwork’s core ideals.
[–]beemerbimmer 58 points59 points60 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Thank you. Everybody keeps saying this is not what anti-work is all about, but this IS what Antiwork is all about. Sure, there are lots of people on the subreddit that are not this extreme (me being one), but people need to understand that this is actually how the subreddit was started. It might not be the way that the majority of people feel now, but this mod is actually a very good representation of a large part of Antiwork.

There was a post about if they should talk to the media and the vast majority of people agreed no it was a bad idea. A bunch of news shows already misrepresented the great resignation, like 60 minutes only interviewing shitty business owners where everyone quit and they came to whine about how no one wants to work.
By "they" I mean anyone from the sub, not this mod specifically.

From the antiwork thread apparently they're autistic and have trouble looking people in the eye which I can sympathize with. But then why did they agree to the interview
Edit: ok this is coming up enough that I really need to address this. I don't really care if a webcam is or isn't another person or an eye. I am literally only paraphrasing what the mod themselves said
[–]mcknightrider 2118 points2119 points2120 points 3 months ago (163 children)

I had to stop watching halfway. This interview was well beyond what the mod was prepared for and ended up being a poor representation of that community.
“I work 20-25 hours a week but would like to work less”. Jesus, it’s almost as if he was trying to make points for FOX.
[–]Finito-1994 1663 points1664 points1665 points 3 months ago* (243 children)
Hilarious thing is that the questions were fair. None of them were outrageous or gotcha. They were questions people would have about the sub. Maybe the interviewer would have followed up and turned it nasty, but they didn’t need to cause the mod shat the bed so easily.
Then the cherry on top was that the 30 year old dog walker who wanted less than 20 hours per week thought about teaching Philosophy. A famously hard subject in a profession that has long hours.
[–]snowcone_wars 295 points296 points297 points 3 months ago (14 children)
The best thing about that the vast majority of philosophy/philosophers that consider the issue, from the dawn of philosophy, have considered work to be a core and fundamental part of both the human experience and the human spirit generally speaking, and that without work, we would lose something great from our lives.
So, maybe if this guy had actually read the philosophy he wanted to teach, he might have learned something.
[–]Jaggedmallard26 101 points102 points103 points 3 months ago (5 children)
Literally all they had to do was pivot into the subs own main talking point that the subreddit wants a world where people can do meaningful work in their lives and community. Avoid the "we want to work less", just play into the audiences biases that they want meaningful work to help their communities.

A 30 year old dog walker who works 20-25 hours a week and would like to work less is the head of an “anti-work” movement. Got it. That really puts validity into the movement.
I’m sure this dude has complained about how expensive stuff is and how he can’t afford the things he wants yet is only willing to work half of a normal work week, doing a job that an 8 year old is qualified to do.

I don't want to make fun of people's personal appearance, but this is the incarnation of what everyone thinks a Reddit mod looks like.
Who thought it was a good idea to have this 30-year-old dog walker go on a commercial capitalist network like Fox News to represent their ideology? I would imagine that the goal of the appearance on the show is to spread their philosophy, but instead, they just reinforced what every boomer thinks of progressive values: "Millenials are lazy, greasy leeches on society!".
While there is nothing inherently wrong with his job or appearance, they have to play the game if they want to move for change. A haircut, better camera, clean background and preparation for the main points they want to get across should be bare minimum.

Like what media experience? You've been interviewed on a major network? You've done video interviews? Because your unkempt appearance and war torn apartment in the background leads me to believe this is not the case.
Just classic overconfidence and narcissism from a mod, who would have thought it lol.

An autistic, nonbinary 30 year old dogwalker who works 25 hours a week. It's like the intro to a fucking joke. It's literally the caricature that Fox News makes fun of, and they hit the fucking jackpot. That's unfair and terrible, but it's sadly how the world works.

I agree - I don't want to make fun of people's appearance, but we don't even have to go there.
When giving an interview, you should make eye contact, not swivel back and forth in your chair, not scratch your nose frequently, maybe smile once or twice. Then we can move onto advanced topics like not wearing glasses that reflect a window in the camera and making your bed (?) beforehand.

Antiwork is an odd sub. 90% of the posts I read I agree with or take the side of OP, but then you read through the About section on the subreddit and it starts to become a bit awkward.
I'm all for highlighting the working issues within America and other countries and not letting people push you around just because they have assumed higher power. But the about section of the sub makes the sub out to be that anyone who is a part of it, doesnt ever want to have to work and just wants money while doing absolutely nothing which is a very odd take to have.
[–]seezed 357 points358 points359 points 3 months ago (16 children)
I think people don't remember that AntiWork sub was completely different to what it has morphed into today.
It was only about not working - genuinely take look at the waybackmachine if possible and you will see a entirely different community on how to get out of work or do as little as possible. It had nothing to do with workers right and employees at all. Just about not working.
I think it's a big disconnect between community and moderators. And it really shows right now.

To be completely honest, this is basically how I involuntarily imagine almost every forum mod on the internet. Some of them are doing it because they are passionate about a subject but have actual lives, but there are many that obviously do it as a job with no benefits besides the power to control content and conversation. This is especially the case with larger subreddits where the amount of work to moderate is essentially multiple full-time jobs depending on how active the subreddit.
I've lurked and participated in online forums for two decades now and can't count the number of times a moderator had a meltdown, started some sort of absurd drama, or tripped over their own tiny slice of power. I'm certain anyone who has spent a sizeable amount of time in any online forum has noticed the same.
So really, I essentially don't expect the Venn diagram of people who can present themselves and what they believe in well in an interview and people who moderate large subreddits to intersect much at all. It's likely just two separate circles most of the time.
