This 'Danger Humans' video by YouTub user Tom Scott is an interesting twist on the usual "Aliens-are-out-there narrative." In most sci-fi stories, Humans tend to be weak and primitive compared to their more technologically advanced invaders or explorers (like in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), but Danger Humans hypothesizes that humans are actually among the most vicious and dangerous of the various species of extra-terrestrial life.

The video posits that humans are among the very few species who developed though a theory of 'survival of the fittest' rather than through mutual cooperation (this includes the eating of other sentient beings -- animals). This video is a unique and interesting alternate viewpoint for science fiction, and the way the Danger Humans video is presented as a kind of educational PSA adds just a touch of humor to the presentation, as we can chuckle at how other aliens may believe us to be violent and aggressive beasts.
