It's thousands of videos, one posted every ten minutes of so, each featuring a different cartoon character standing still mouthing along as an almost unintelligible robot voice recites a news article.

Each video's views are in the single digits, a couple with more but none less than 100. Is this just to get accidental hits that generate advertising income? Are they made by an automatic system that creates and uploads them?

I don't know if it's genius or reprehensible.
