My eyes hurt

Reading on the blogs that studios are about to start posting full length movies on YouTube, I clicked on a link to look at MGM’s YouTube channel. What greeted me was the view above.

Ooh, I thought, movies. Robocop, Rocky, Hannibal Lecter. Coool.


These are background images. You can’t click them. The little black pane at the top has the clickable links. All the rest are just there to disappoint you and make you annoyed with the page. 

Two theories:

1. This is a cunning plan to make the channel unusable, hence sabotaging the argument that content will be viewed online.

2. They have, literally, no idea as to what makes a web page usable.

You decide.
