There are plenty of videos on YouTube that dive into the history of photography. But few will make you laugh like this one will.

This tongue-in-cheek video, created by YouTube channel Glove and Boots, shares The Terrible History of Photographs using puppets, a la Sesame Street.

The video comes in just under five minutes and in that time both Glove and Boots (as well as their gorilla friend) explain a very basic, cynical look at how photography got to where it is today and the terrible, no good, awful technology that camera before smartphones.
