Do not like the look of a wider spectrum of viewers-consumers, the most points scores the kitsch and the bad movie pub humor.

When everything goes up.
How will the world end?
By a space invasion, which is being planned on us for thousand years, but when it finally arrives, we’ll already be all dead because of some bomb explosion. Extraterrestrials will be first upset that their preparations were unnecessary, but, eventually, they will make jokes about us, how stupid we were.
