Shame on you for clicking 'Dogs on skateboards 4'

From the UK: 'Dogs on skateboards 4' for The Open University by LIDA

Ad Nut wonders how effective it is to shame people for watching stupid YouTube videos. The above example is not even the first time Ad Nut has seen this same tactic; a previous campaign for a charitable organisation put it this way: 'What the f**k have you done?'

If you're wasting time watching videos, and suddenly find yourself fooled into watching a clip that makes you feel bad about wasting your life, are you going to support the organisation that shamed you? Ad Nut is seriously asking. As a woodland creature, human psychology is something of a puzzle, so if any experts out there would care to enlighten Ad Nut, Ad Nut would appreciate it. 

On another note, Ad Nut definitely does not appreciate people teaching their dogs to ride skateboards or any other means of rapid conveyance. Dear humans, the small, peaceful woodland creatures of the world beseech you to remember that your pooches are on a fundamental level murderous beasts who like nothing more than rending small, peaceful woodland creatures into bloody shreds. They do not need to be any faster than evolution has already made them. Thank you for your cooperation.
