Depends on what you're applying for, but as someone who has hired people before, I'd laugh my ass off if someone gave me YouTube links to anything on their resume unless it was their film reel.

A gimmick on your resume isn't going to get you a job. It will get you laughed at and potentially made fun of on the Internet however.

Unless it's relevant to the job you're applying for (which it's not), no one cares about your eBay seller ID, your Naruto Fanclub membership, or links to youtube videos with you in them.

A good rule of thumb is that there shouldn't be anything cool on your resume. Unless its a cool job related achievement

The coolest thing to an employer would be if you had enough prior experience to fill up the resume with that.

The furthest thing from experience I ever had on a resume was volunteer opportunities I had worked in. But as my experience grew, those dropped off my resume. Also, used to have more on my academic achievement but now that is just a bullet point.

I don't know what you're expecting. If you were applying to a game website to review games, maybe they'd care about an unboxing video. Otherwise, they only want info that pertains to how you can do the job better. Your resume lets them know you can do the job. The face to face interview is the chance you get to inject some of your personality to show them that you mesh with their environment.

LOL I always mess with my friend who just got out of the Army about his horribly low K/D ratio. His resume implies he's a camper.......
