This is not Clickbait!

It is actually the hit series ClCKBAIT. Have you watched it?

Published

No! What are you waiting for? Believe me, this series will make you look at everyone you know differently.

Husband, father, brother, and son Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier) appears one day in a viral video, holding a series of signs that say “I ABUSE WOMEN” and “AT 5 MILLION VIEWS, I DIE.” The video burns through the Internet, amassing thousands of clicks in minutes, taking over news networks, becoming the only thing everyone is watching on their phones, tablets, computers, or TVs.

 

The spontaneous, impulsive Pia(Nick Brewer’s sister), whom Kazan permeates with jittery energy, refuses to stand aside and wait for the police to do their jobs. “This video is not a confession. It’s a death threat,” she says, and she turns to a hacker friend, Vince, (Jack Walton) to look into Nick’s online life and help her investigate on her own. Her other ally is Detective Roshan Amiri (Phoenix Raei), a missing persons detective desperate to prove himself and earn promotion into homicide. As they pursue a number of leads—was Nick seen somewhere? Where were the videos of him filmed? Did he disappear on the way to work? They tumble down a rabbit hole that suggests Nick wasn’t the loving family man he seemed to be. One dating app profile appears, then another, and another. With Nick abducted and unable to speak for himself, it’s up to his family members and the others involved in his case to try and piece together who he really was.
Each of the eight episodes of “Clickbait” focuses on a different character, with episode titles like “The Sister,” “The Detective,” and “The Wife.” First up is Pia, who takes everything personally and who feels guilty about her last interaction with Nick. Next is Sophie, who has a secret of her own and is trying to hold the family together. Later on are Ethan and Kai, who fear the worst but whose lives spent entirely on social media give them a different, nearly symbiotic relationship with what is happening to their father. Roshan and journalist Ben Park (Abraham Lim), who see in this case an opportunity to advance their careers, also get their own standalone episodes and their choices serve as a commentary on the very “clickbait” nature of the show’s content.

 

If you love some thrill then this sinister online twisted show is the right fit for you. For more movie reviews and some awesome suggestions, Vibe Yetu is the place to be.

Cheers!

“You all might not understand but allow me to express myself today. I may appear strong but deep down I have been broken so many times. I am a moving damaged goods,” She wrote.

He went on to say that the same-sex relationship is evident in the film through repeated confessions by the gay couple(in the film) that what they feel for each other is normal and should be embraced as a way of life.

Mr. Wambua also announced that any attempts to air the film with the Kenyan territory in now deemed illegal and any to distribute it within the country shall be met with the full force of the law.

“While the Board welcomes local and foreign support to our budding local film industry, such funding should focus on production of content that is aligned with the laws of our country. Films that advocate for same-sex marriages, homosexuality or any outlawed practices shall not be allowed for exhibition, or distribution within the country,” KFCB said.
