We've all done it. You start looking at a short clip - maybe only a few seconds long - and end up clicking on related content after related content for hours and hours on end. It's all just far toooooooo interesting!
Boss: "What time do you call this?!"

Employee: "Sorry - I got stuck in an epic Princess Diana related YouTube Spiral and this morning just got away from me."

Get the YouTube Spiral mug.
The spiral you descend into, much like Alice when she was in Wonderland, where you keep falling and have no sense of time. It starts with watching a video of a cat that your friend sent you, clicking a related clip of a baby laughing, to ultimately watching an R rated clip. You then come to your senses and realise you've just wasted 2 hours of your life watching pointless videos and vow never to do that again.
Friend: "What did you get up to today?"

Me: "I started off watching a cat video and then feel into a Youtube Spiral and wasted so many hours watching so many useless videos. I'm never going to fall into a Youtube Spiral again".

Friend: "Did you see the video of the cat playing the keyboard?"

Me: "No. Let me look it up now."
