At first glance, the videos look like just more compilations of stolen cars being raced recklessly around the streets - like those posted online by either the people involved or willing spectators.
But anyone who clicks on them expecting to revel in such criminality probably gets more than they bargained for.
One of the videos, which has been viewed over 5,800 times since being posted just days ago, starts out with footage of illegal street racing taken on the Falls Road in west Belfast on New Year's Eve.
After a few more examples of similar incidents, complete with whistles and cheers from those watching, the video cuts abruptly to a young child lying unconscious in hospital.
While the little boy survived, the crash in which he was injured killed both his parents and left him and his sister orphaned.
"I pray for them to come back," he says simply. "I always do that."
It serves as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by car crime.
Racing stolen cars can prove fatal, to innocent victims and to those involved. It already has.
