I've seen this a lot lately.
How is this helpful? All I want is information, and barring specific situations, I can read an article (and maybe look at a few pictures) in MUCH less time than it takes to watch an equivalent video.
I have nothing against videos in general. Go ahead, make all the videos you want. Just give me a text version also. "Articles" like this don't make me stop and watch the video. I just get annoyed, close the tab, and move on.
