Buzzfeed does a Buzzfeed by doing a Buzzfeed video about “Illegal Pinball”. Or rather, the same story about pinball being illegal in the past. Complete with a clickbait headline like “Illegal Pinball”, which implies there is lots of evil, illegal pinball happening now. So watch out and be fearful and stuff. Instead of a more sensible headline like, “Pinball used to be illegal” that wont get as many clicks.
I did have a chuckle at the initial comments, which pointed out that many subscribers to Buzzfeed already knew pinball was illegal and now is not.
Since I initially saw it, that title of the video has been changed away from “Illegal Pinball” to “69 People Arrested for Playing Pinball”. The clickbait remains strong.
Fun With Bonus is the home of the semi-coherent, misguided ramblings of professional and amateur pinball players.
