[[http://www.youtube.com/user/BaratsAndBereta Barats and Bereta]] are an Internet comedy duo who write, act, and post skits on their Youtube channel as well as their own [[http://www.baratsandbereta.com/ Homepage]]. Some of their older, better known works are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhcA4Ry65FU Mother's Day]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtEp5yc-g3A Auto Insurance]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiXhQUym0fA Flag Makeover]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fad6eZTDikA Douche Off]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvltzwkUEEA Mantage]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5rF_X-8LiI Jesus Pwned U]]. There are also some short series, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAXwaqbRol4 Ad Guys]].

They are probably known most for their usage of MundaneMadeAwesome and NarmCharm as vehicles for their work.

----

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTB_fVCylhY&feature=relmfu Mattress Sale]]: "Cause Monday I go to prison for tax evasion, and child pornography, and Jaywalking."
** Also a recurring gag in "the Mantage" where 'cuddling a kitten' is inexplicably added to the list of manly activities.
* AscendedMeme: Getting ''The'' TheDanza to sing along with "''[[{{Mondegreen}} Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza]]''"
* BadBadActing: Parodied with the bullets in "Overacting Bullets" to great comedic effect.
* BerserkButton: Invoked purposely with the Boston fans in "Boston Jury Duty."
* BigNo: In "April Fool's".
* BlackComedyRape: Implied in "You Call That a Shot?"
* {{Calvinball}}: "Mousemate".
** And now, "Foodball".
* CaptainObvious: From "Rulebreakers": "We're the Smiths, because that's our last name!"
* CloudCuckooLander: Barats and Bereta both, depending on what character they're playing. Barats ''especially'' in the "Lolcats" video.
* ClusterFBomb: The Boston fans in "Boston Jury Duty."
* CharacterBlog: After Barats' "fight" with Bereta, he actually did make a Youtube channel called [[http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=baratsandnobodyelse&annotation_id=annotation_528441&feature=iv BaratsAndNobodyElse]].
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Initial reactions to "Foodball" has Website/YouTube commenters complaining about how the Dynamic Duo is wasting food, despite the fact that there's a short segment in the video where the pair consider feeding a homeless man with the food they're wasting and then [[ComedicSociopath ruin the rest of the food he could have eaten.]]
* ComedicSociopath: Both guys in "Foodball" for stomping on the banana that could have fed a homeless man.
* ConstructionCatcalls: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DViogbPTH4 This sketch teaches you how to do it right.]]
* DoubleEntendre: "Great Pick Up Lines in American History", "Great Pick Up Lines in Sports", "Great Pick Up Lines in the Bible" and "Great Pick Up Lines in Science" have more than a few of them.
* {{Earworm}}: The music to "F U!" will be stuck in your head for ''hours.''
* ExcitedKidsShowHost: Parodied in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHNrQDmP2_Y Yes Kidz Can]].
* EscalatingWar: Used in videos like "Cubicle War" and "April Fools".
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Luke has a "hetero Man Crush" on David Hasselhoff (Then again, who doesn't?) while Joe has a [[HoYay strange fondness]] for Mark Spitz (in a speedo).
* FranklinPierce: Who? That guy in the "Great Pick-up Lines in History" short?
* GlassesPull: The defense attorney in "Boston Jury Duty."
-->"...[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]] the Yankees."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Luke Barats and Joe Bereta should be the WebOriginal posterboys for this trope. Their characters are often examples of this as well.
* HilariousOuttakes: There's one at the end of "Rulebreakers" where Barats tries to continue being electrocuted but ends up breaking down laughing from the sheer silliness of his [[BadBadActing acting]].
* HypnoFool: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UfZNbLOkRA "Hypnosis,"]] in which the two have hypnotized each other. Towards the end, [[TriggerPhrase they accidentally trigger each other]].
* JerkAss: Mr. Wentworth. (And maybe Jesus, but he's more like CrazyAwesome.)
** Also, Luke and Joe from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fad6eZTDikA Douche Off]] compete to see who is the bigger one of this trope. It is as epic as it sounds.
* LargeHam: Both Luke and Joe try to out-ham each other in every video. Special mention goes to "Ad Guys" and "Cubicle Wars" for [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome making a plot out of the one-upping antics.]]
* MoodWhiplash: When one of the kids gets a seizure in "Yes Kidz Kan".
-->No. Leave him. ''He is not a Kid Kadet''.
* PrecisionFStrike: In "Mousemate" and "Ad Guys".
* RapidFireComedy: Be careful or you'll miss something good.
* RatedMForManly: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvltzwkUEEA Mantage]], obviously.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Milkman and Mailman.
* TakeThat: In "2012", the time traveling pair accidentally destroy the only copy of ''Indiana Jones 4'', which is one in a chain of events that ''prevents the apocalypse.''
** "F U!" is a video composed of three people flipping off annoying people in the most amazingly over-the-top fashions possible. The first person lets his dog shit in a guy's yard right next to his paper, the second person, a girl, blows a kiss to someone's boyfriend while the girlfriend is walking right next to him, and the third guy drank all his roommate's beers. It must be seen to be truly appreciated.
** "Boston Jury Duty" is one big TakeThat at the New York Yankees. It's a slow burn, but the pay off is so worth it.
** "Hypnosis" ends with one to Music/JustinBieber.
