What is with all the advertisements on the youtube channels like paste this on your channel if you like to laugh?

Like they want people to agree with them when they say things like "put this on your channel if you like to laugh" or "put this on your channel if you like to hug people" or "put this on your channel if you support furies" etc. They are trying to get other people to agree with them so they end up putting it on their page. It's kind of like what you said they are trying to advertise.
