* ClusterFBomb: Although Dan Bull isn't a stranger to profanities in his songs, the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meDqJqoq7K0 Fuck]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Everything]]" song takes this UpToEleven.

An independent English musician famed on the Internet for his unusual stance on the DigitalPiracyIsEvil debate: he actually supports filesharing software, and writes musical open letters to various English politicians and musicians on the other side of the debate. His first such letter, to musician and anti-piracy crusader in the vein of [[Music/{{Metallica}} Lars Ulrich]] Lily Allen, was linked on The Pirate Bay, Piratbyrån, and various other major filesharing sites and his popularity skyrocketed in a very unusual (but large!) demographic.

* {{Homage}}: "John Lennon" is a big one to [[Music/JohnLennon yours truly]].

to:

* FanDisservice: Him taking his shirt off in "Dear Miley".
* {{Homage}}: "John Lennon" is a big one to [[Music/JohnLennon yours truly]]. The video clip even looks like the frames are drawn by Lennon himself.


Added DiffLines:

* IntersceneDiegetic: Usually happens in his videos. For example, at the beginning of his [[Franchise/MassEffect Mass Effect One and Two]] Epic Rap, there's an image of Shepard talking, and it's assumed that he's rapping. However, as we switch to the rest of the video, his raps are still heard.

** He had a rap battle with iDubbz (a Youtuber in the vein of H3H3 and not particularly known for any musical talent), of all people, capitalizing of the Battlefield 1 vs Infinite Warfare trailer debacle. Dan Bull played Battlefield 1 with truly ''epic'' attack verses set to a remix of Seven Nation Army, while iDubbz gave a ''[[StylisticSuck hilariously awful]]'' series of rebuttal verses set to a horrifically amateur verse, mirroring the respective game trailers and fan reactions.

Added DiffLines:

* ShapedLikeItself: "How to Make a How to Video" is a how to video that describes how to make a how to video.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: "How to Make a How to Video". There's no rapping in the video at all.
