Clipbait is similar to clickbait. However, instead of a misleading headline or title designed to bring in views or 'clicks', clipbaiting is taking a particular piece of footage or audio - a 'clip' - and removing it from the rest of the piece. This is done in such a way to remove it from the context of the full clip to alter the meaning of the original clip.

Note: Clipbait can be differentiated from (or, rather, include Quote Mining ) in that it can include both the usage of cherry-picked audio quotes OR wholly visual clips.
That news article of Fred Jones saying Coolsville sucks is total Clipbait, they just took that line out of context!

Saying that Han didn't shoot first is just Lucas putting in clipbait.
