Let Me introduce you to Youtube DouchebagMCMoneyWhore2345 - Cobanermani456
When first introduced, gaming partners never really had that option till around 2011 when if you're in a network, you can create these. Now, I use shows myself, and I find nothing wrong with them let that be on the record. HOWEVER. Since the nature of shows tend to appear first in search results:
People.. tend to abuse this.
Usually with shows, The sooner you create them, the more likely hood of your show appearing first if two people have the same show name. (I'm 90% positive on this) So naturally, First in best dressed! When creating a show, it has to be approved by You-tube, and their credentials are mainly: Filled in information, Uploaded graphics, and submitted a video. If you don't do any of these your show will not be created until all requirements are met.
So you ask, How does one create a show that is viewable in search results and public for a game not even out yet? Well.. he's where the douchiness comes into play. People upload trailers for the game 90% of the time. Not only does this gain easy views for your channel (and money!) it allows you to have some sort of content relative to the game. Consequentially.. You can attach any old video to a show so it gets approved, and that's what Cobermani456.. let's call him Cobi... did.
Mr Cobi has 3 Shows tied to the game "Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed" one for the 3DS, PS VIta, and Wii U versions accordingly. Now.. there isn't anything too wrong with them, it's a tad desperate in my opinion, but you know what they say. Say what you will about making multiple shows/making them with trailers/making a couple minute "I'm Lping this game!" video
I'm talking about against YouTube rules, and moral rules which these people seem to fucking lack.
Here is a picture of the 3DS version of the Show. What's that video you see linked? NiGHTS Journey of Dreams for the Nintendo Wii? May 6th 2011? What? This video contains NO content about Sonic and All stars Racing Transformed, and is completely unrelated (Other than the fact they are both SEGA titles)
This is Mislabeling videos for views, and shows. Now he may not do this for views on this particular video (and will most likely remove it when he has legitimate footage for the show) but this is.. well Mislabeling videos. This has nothing to do with the promised game, and I'm pretty sure that's against the YouTube terms of service! This isn't the only case either.

He's not the only one that does this.
Say what you will about this, for me personally, it's wrong. I have nothing against shows, But when they are mislabeled like this, It kinda pisses me off how much people will do for views. They say its for the subs to subscribe to, but its really for the up-loaders wallet. Prove me wrong. Tell me a reason you think this is accepted. I would love to hear you justify lying.
Hope the money is worth it; Placlu.
