[[caption-width-right:156:How could you ''not'' fall in love with that [[WhenHeSmiles smile]]?]]

Welcome to the world of Charlie [=McDonnell=], a British twenty-something, Website/YouTube vlogger, band member of Music/ChameleonCircuit, and the epitome of {{Adorkable}}. He can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/charlieissocoollike here.]]
----
!!Tropes used by charlieissocoollike:

* ActingForTwo: In addition to himself, he also plays Artie Bloch in ''Coming Out'' and Mr. Information in ''Fun Science: Sound''.
* {{Affectionate Parody}}: In ''Charlie Is Not A Unicorn,'' of {{Charlie The Unicorn}}. Could just be {{Mind Screw}}.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Averted; he and Bridie seem to get along quite well, though they do jokingly take the mick out of one another repeatedly.
* BadBadActing: In ''Cooking With Charlie''.
* BigNo: At the end of the ''Coming Out'' video.
* BuffySpeak:
-->''All will be revealed next week, here at the charliessocoollike-web-video-show-thingie-whatever-this-is.''
* {{Crossover}}: Sometimes with nerimon (Creator/AlexDay), {{danisnotonfire}}, and the {{Vlogbrothers}}.
* DontExplainTheJoke: After Mr. Information gives false information about the five senses and Charlie gives the correct information...
--> '''Charlie:''' Mr. Information? Ha. More like... ''Miss'' Information. ''({{Beat}})'' Get it? See, I am calling him a woman, but at the same time, he gave you ''misinformation'', so it's like a... ''(to Mr. Information, who he has just punched)'' What do you think of that.
--> '''Mr. Information:''' ''(weakly)'' That's a very clever pun, Charlie.
--> '''Charlie:''' Thank you.
* DownerEnding: The song ''Bread'' ends on a rather depressing note. Parodied in ''Why Women Scare Me''.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: [[EvilCounterpart Evil Charlie]] decides to torture Charlie by...THROWING WATER IN HIS FACE!
* FourthWallMailSlot: On occasion.
* HalloweenEpisode: ''Scary Science''.
* HarmlessVillain: "Evil" Charlie from ''[[EvilCounterpart The Other Charlie]]'':
--> '''Evil Charlie:''' Based on my personal level of evil, probably the best thing I can do at this point is, uhmm...uhh.... ''(loos through Evil Handbook of Evil)'' [[FelonyMisdemeanor THROW WATER IN HIS FACE!]] That..that's horrible. I like that one!
* HeManWomanHater: He doesn't ''hate'' women, per se, but he ''is'' terrified of them.
* HeroesWantRedHeads: Many examples over the years.
** His favorite Disney princess is [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]] and he also loves Amy Pond.
** A ''lot'' of people, girls in particular liked his red hair.
** He also likes Felicia Day.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation:
** "Duet With Myself".
** "Rhymezone" thanks the website for what he sometimes views as poor imagination, also criticising himself for his dependence on it to a small degree.
** "A Song About a Song", where he mocks himself for not being imaginative, again, and lampshades the facts that he should really do a bridge but cuts the song short.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Formerly with Alex Day/Nerimon, as the two were once as thick as thieves. Nowadays, not so much.
* HollywoodDateless: Commented on (and sometimes sung about) in reference to his inability to get a date and his previous romantic failures. This could just be because he's focusing on his personal life, as hinted at in "A Song About Love". He has a girlfriend now, though.
* {{Keet}}: Charlie is easily excited and struggles to sit still.
* LetsDuet: He somehow manages to do this alone.
* MadnessMantra: Parodied in one of his now-removed videos where he pretends to go mad over having barely any subscribers, continually chanting "subscribe" while playing an instrument until he passes out.
* NerdGlasses: His "serious glasses".
* NiceGuy: Charlie is a friendly, polite and informative person who regularly does charity drives and PSA videos.
* OfficialCouple: Charlie and youtuber/filmaker emilieofnewgloom.
* OpenMindedParent: Come on, not many moms would paint their sons purple or let them stuff marshmallows into their mouths until they puked.
* PosterGalleryBedroom: His "Wall of Stuff", which has gone through many iterations over the years.
* ProductPlacement: Accidental, and lampshaded, in ''Magic Mars Bars''.
--> "I just want to make it clear that Mars Bars aren't sponsoring me to make this video. I could've said the whole thing exactly the same with Twixes and it wouldn't have mattered, they're not paying me, I promise!"
* RealPersonShipping: He was quite aware of the Cherimon (him and Alex Day) ship, even briefly singing "I Want to Be Mrs. Nerimon". PlayedForLaughs when the two were still friends.
* RedheadedHero: For a time, then he cut the red off since he was tired of being called "Ron Weasley".
* SelfBackingVocalist: Charlie produces a lot of his own music and therefore does a lot of backing vocals.
* SignificantAnagram: From the "Coming Out" video: an anagram of "Artie Bloch" is [[spoiler:[[TomatoInTheMirror Charliebot]]]].
* SingerNamedrop:
--> "We make a perfect Charlie...."
* TheStinger: Quite a lot.
* ThisIsASong: A few of his songs are this:
** “A Song About A Song”
--->''Welcome to this song, which I wrote all myself''
--->''It's all about this song, which I did write''
** “The Birthday Song”
--->''This is a song that I wrote you for your birthday''
** “A Song About Love”
--->''This is a song about love!''
* TimeTravel: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in, well ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Time Travel]]''.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Charlie has an recurring fear of moths.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: His sister Bridie. When Charlie mentioned her turning 15, some people said things like, "Holy shit, I thought she was about 17!" or "Oh God, and I was thinking that she's hot!"
