    It's because the deadlift is a major powerlifting exercise. Most powerlifters are not concerned with how they look but how much they can lift. They tend to be more overwieght/massive than your average lifter.

    The deadlift is the BEST overall body exercise. When you do them just make sure you keep your rep range in the 8-12 zone.

    Can't explain the videos you're seeing, but I can guarantee you're not going to get fat from doing deadlifts. They're one of the absolute best exercises you can do (along with squats) if done properly.
