Trivia

BRIGHT SIDE mainly makes videos about space, science, historical mysteries, real-life curiosities, tests, and tips.

Riddle Videos

BRIGHT SIDE has been releasing riddles videos since the January of 2018. But even though they are their newest genre, it is one of the most popular. The videos are mostly based around detective, mystery, and murder puzzles. This has sparked quite a bit of controversy, as BRIGHT SIDE is regarded a kids channel, yet the riddles contained dark themes. Their most popular riddle video had thirty-nine million views, and the next has thirty-seven.

Controversy

Content farming

Many have pointed out that the channel was farming content, with high-quality videos stretched to ten minutes being uploaded every day. On closer inspection, one can see that they are growing more through the quality of their videos than the actual presented content in them. The videos often use tricks such as drawn-out speaking, pauses in the video and unnecessary quips or comments to drag the videos out as long as possible. Alongside this, the channel sometimes presents misleading information in their list videos, as well as never presenting any sources at all.

Misleading information

After BRIGHT SIDE posted "Titanic Survivor Claims an Iceberg Didn't Destroy the Ship" and "The Truth About the Titanic Has Been Revealed", a team of historians and experts at the YouTube channel "Titanic: Honor And Glory", some of them having worked on the 1997 film Titanic, exposed the lies in BRIGHT SIDE's video. With their work they uncovered the lies and concluded that BRIGHT SIDE was spreading misinformation for clickbait, getting money and attention. At the end of the debunking video, Titanic: Honor And Glory also warns its viewers to check their sources, especially when researching facts about the Titanic. In their opinion, spreading fake news about the disaster was disrespectful for the victims taking part in event.
