** In the ''Disneyland Ghost Debunk'' video, many fans were quick to point out that Mickey Mouse appeared to have visible breasts. Captain D responded by uploading a video in which the women of the series were presented as possible candidates for the actress in the costume...[[spoiler:only for it to be revealed that it was the "deceptively flabby" Captain D himself, followed by footage of him shirtless and rubbing his nipples.]]

Captain Disillusion is a web video series created by Latvian-born independent film maker Alan Melikdjanian. The series was started on September 18, 2007 and is still going on today.

The titular Captain D is a skeptic from the future who uses his superior critical thinking powers and intimate knowledge of digital editing and effects to debunk viral hoax videos on the internet. These videos include but are not limited to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XE1OmvERQek ghosts]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQ-CiG7seUU aliens]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8sGTh7ZpoY impossible stunts]], and much more. But Captain D isn't alone he has to put up with an annoying living LensFlare named Mr. Flare and, more occasionally, a giant floating head goddess named Holly.

-->'''Captain Disillusion''': All I have to do is figure out what's happening in an image originally recorded by an off-the-shelf security camera onto a VHS tape, then filmed off a TV screen with a handheld consumer camcorder, dumped by a TV station, edited into a news show from which it was DVR'd by another person, digitized into a video file, played from a laptop on a projector at a conference where it was filmed from the screen, compressed and then uploaded to YouTube.



* TakeThatMe: When Mr. Flare almost takes over the show, he claims one of the changes he'll make is they'll stop using "debunk" as a noun.
