God Youtube's algorithms are weird. Why did they recommend a video of two aussie guys who unclog drains?

And no i haven't been binge watching their videos all day. :oops:
YouTube uses machine learning to predict what you would like to watch based on subject matter that you have previously watched - based on the viewing history of other people who have watched that video. It's using Google's AI that they use for AdWords, so any searches you've made in Google will also come up in your YouTube recommended list.

For example - I started looking into programming in C# and Python, and up comes chess games in my recommended feed. That's because most people who are into programming would be into the technical nature of chess as a recreational pursuit.

But if I look at clips from Skip and Shannon Undisputed, it will come up with a whole bunch of stuff about the NBA/NFL.

So when you see an ad for something that doesn't really apply to you, it just means you've been looking at something that would apply to most people who have looked at the sites you have.

I understand that but i gave google no indication that i would want to watch anything even related to plumbing in any way, plus my main platform is my PC which has ad and tracking blockers.

Ideally, outside of youtube google should have no idea of what im looking at.

Stop punching words like Kenny and sh1t into Google if you don't want to be served up YouTube plumbing vids.

Watching Chernobyl with my gf and it was a strange realisation that if they hadn’t of stopped the full meltdown that came very close to happening we never would have met. She was born in September 1986 approx 700km from Chernobyl. And no she doesn’t have 2 heads. The radiation didn’t carry that far but a full meltdown explosion that was stopped probably would have and I would be a sad loner.
