[[caption-width-right:350: [- Pictured: Morshu [[FlippingTheBird and his middle fingers.]] And no, they're not aimed at ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall you.]]'' It's only that this pooper's "Apoopcalypse Now" was the first appearance of this custom sprite. -] ]]

There are many notable {{YouTube Poop}}-ers out there. There's {{Deepercutt}}, there's {{WalrusGuy}}...

... and there are some who lack the fame reached by those two. Of course, {{NintendoBrad}} somehow managed to come close to them in terms of popularity, but there's still another underdog in this field that can't go unmentioned. His username is '''[=IAmTheGang=]'''.

Easily one of the most creative minds in the YTP field; but unlike Deepercutt, he's not active anymore within the YouTube Poop community, sadly joining the ranks of [=WalrusGuy=] and [=NintendoBrad=].

Even more sadly, unlike [=WalrusGuy=], for some reason [[OldShame he doesn't even want his name to be associated with YouTube Poop anymore]], logic be damned. It may have to do with the fact [[WordOfGod he stated to have always disliked the term "Poop"]], in a strange case of [[NotUsingTheZWord Not Using the YTP Word]], but who knows.

What counts is that many [=YouTube=] users like '''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/IAmThaGang IAmThaGang]]'''[[note]]and [=ImTheGang=], until recently[[/note]] KeepCirculatingTheTapes anyway, akin to {{WalrusGuyMEMORIAL}} (who, unlike [=IAmThaGang=], got greenlighted by the original [[WalrusGuy WalrusGuy]] himself).

Now this page has a separate [[{{YMMV/IAmTheGang}} YMMV page.]]
----
Relevant tropes:
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: He really ''did'' something completely different from the rest of the usual poops, the [[LampshadeHanging aptly-named]] "The only western poop anyone has ever made".
* AuthorAppeal: Out of the four aforementioned poopers, his appeal is the most blatant. ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' stands out as the most referenced work, but there's also most of {{Rare}}'s games for the [[{{Nintendo 64}} N64]], RLeeErmey as [[DrillSergeantNasty Sgt. Hartman]] from ''FullMetalJacket'', [[VideoGame/TimeSplitters Cortez]] and [[ThreeHundred Leonidas]].
** To sum it up, just look for his "SuperSmashBros: Honorable Mentions" video and you'll see characters that are bound to pop up in damn near every video of his. Well, [[CaptainObvious besides]] [[GodwinsLaw Hitler]] of course.
** And accordions. Three poops[[note]] ("Hotel Mario Missing Cutscenes", "The fourth Zelda CD-i Game: The Return to Gamelon" and "My Message On Irresponsible Drinking")[[/note]] feature accordion music.
** "Hall of the Mountain King" and "Ride of the Valkyries" pop up pretty often.
* BerserkButton: By now we know about the King's obsession with "DINNER", so ''don't'' tell him there is no dinner. ''The entire cast of VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames'' found out the hard way.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: The King himself, again. Especially evident in the two [[ScareEmStraight "My Message On..."]] videos.
** Also: '''''do not [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]''''' with Morshu (as seen in "CD-i can still be funny" and, most notably, "The only Western Poop Anyone Has Ever Made").
*** And in "Apoopcalypse Now", the [[FlippingTheBird "flipping-two-fingers"]] Morshu made his first appearance ever... [[spoiler: ''[[EstablishingCharacterMoment while doing a kamikaze attack against Bowser's castle]]'']]. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Yes.]]
* DarkerAndEdgier: laughably parodied in "The fourth Zelda CD-i Game: The Return to Gamelon".
* {{Deconstruction}}: "The Final Cutscene" of the (fictional) fourth game of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames The Unholy Triforce]]'' promptly [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] the CrowningMomentOfFunny you might have expected after seeing "The fourth Zelda CD-i Game: The Return to Gamelon" with one unbelievable hell of a TearJerker.
* DrillSergeantNasty: RLeeErmey himself appears in several shorts.
* FlippingTheBird: one of his trademark is a custom sprite of Morshu doing this with both middle fingers[[note]] [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd AT FULL FORCE!]][[/note]]. Notably, the custom sprite in question was made just for him (and made its first appearance in "Apoopcalypse Now"), and is therefore generally associated to him.
* {{Homage}}: "The Only Western Poop Anyone Has Ever Made" has two. The title references [[{{Walrusguy}} "The only Mama Luigi Poop Anyone Has Ever Made"]], while the poop itself is a WholePlotReference to the saloon showdown in ''HangEmHigh''.
* HilarityEnsues: found in many of his videos, if not all. Protip: ''Never'' allow Mario to get drunk.
* ManipulativeEditing: It comes with the territory, but "The Only Western Poop Anyone Has Ever Made" is successful enough at this to actually manage to [[GenreShift shift the genre]] from usual poops to... well, a western theme. [[SoCoolItsAwesome And he does an excellent job at it.]]
** On the other hand, the very same poop has an awful case of {{mondegreen}}: the line "I'm innocent" is easy to be misheard as "I'm made of sand".
* MoodWhiplash: as a [[TheStinger stinger]], a work-in-progress clip of "VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Impending Perfection" comes right after "The Return To Gamelon: The Final Cutscene".
* ScareEmStraight: hilariously parodied in the "My Message On..." videos.
* TheStinger: many of his videos end with one, usually involving some of George's [[note]] The [[FanNickname "cakes]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse guy"]] from VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames.[[/note]] shenanigans, or the aforementioned "middle-finger-Morshu".
* TookALevelInBadass: pretty much everyone takes one in his videos, and probably ''all at once'' in "Apoopcalypse Now". It makes The King - ''The King'' - badass.
