I mostly watch Riverdale nowadays to make fun of it, and I donâ€™t think Iâ€™m the only one. In fact, I canâ€™t imagine thereâ€™s anyone out there who actually cult leader in a rocket, thereâ€™s really nowhere else you can go. But now, I may not even have to watch the episodes to get my Riverdale fill. Iâ€™ve found another way.
Thereâ€™s a huge community online of RiverdaleÂ fans putting together â€œcringe videosâ€ highlighting the best of the worst of Riverdale…which is, frankly, a good chunk of Riverdale and its appeal at this point. Itâ€™s a style of video compilation thatâ€™s popular on YouTube, Snapchat, and TikTok, but somehow it just seems to work so well for Riverdaleâ€™s brand of camp absurdity. Iâ€™ve pulled out a few of my favourite ones, starting with what I think is the best overall Riverdale cringe video.
Hereâ€™s a video dedicated to one of the biggest WTF elements of Riverdale: Dark Betty. Apparently, thereâ€™s something called the â€œserial killer geneâ€ and Bettyâ€™s totally got it.
Thereâ€™s a whole subgenre of Riverdale cringe videos poking fun at their Heathers musical. While Riverdaleâ€™s Carrie tribute was more-or-less â€œok,â€ their take on Heathers was abominable. Shhhhhhhh……
If you want to feel caught up through the midseason four finale of Riverdale, you can just watch this latest cringe compilation. This YouTuber makes cringe videos for just about every episode, which means I can stay updated without actually having to watch it. Tangerine. Tangerine. Tangerine.
But hey, donâ€™t take my word for it. Here are the actors of Riverdale shitting on their own show. They know what we know.
In conclusion, Riverdale is flawless, donâ€™t at me.
