->''"Hello there, Youtubers."''



'''Yotobi''', Karim Musa's alias, is an [[{{UsefulNotes/Italy}} Italian]] internet reviewer, and he's pretty much ''the'' go-to online CausticCritic when it comes to this kind of VideoReviewShow among the Italian audience.

His style is, more or less, the one popularized with ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'' and ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'', as he reviews both [[{{Horrible/VideoGames}} sucky video games]] and (especially) [[{{Horrible/Film}} just-as-sucky movies.]] However, his style [[GrowingTheBeard evolved soon enough into something more unique]], which is most likely helped by the "Universal Squallor" logo pictured above standing for an actual studio; said studio was never actually meant to be ''entirely'' about reviews in the first place. [[WordOfGod Yotobi himself said so.]]

However, we were talking about the stuff he reviews. Yep, sucky stuff. How sucky, you ask? Well, so far he has reviewed ''BigRigsOverTheRoadRacing'', [[VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial the infamous E.T. video game]], ''[[Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg Epic Movie AND Disaster Movie]]'', ''{{Film/Birdemic}}'', ''Film/MegaSharkVsGiantOctopus'', ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate''... the list goes on; [[SnarkBait you can pretty much guess where this is going.]]

%% Yotobi's style is very similar (although simpler and more based on snark rather than special effects) to The Nostalgia Critic's, but due to a small feud-ish EditWar (resolved peacefully as well as quickly) occurred in the same day this article was created, the Channel Awesome references are confined to the opening paragraph only. Make sure it stays that way, no matter how tempted you are, or (especially) on which side of the Italian NC/Yotobi FandomRivalry you're on. %%

* BrickJoke[=/=]TemptingFate: One of his RunningGags is pretending to have a stroke after watching "trash scenes". In the review for ''Film/RikiOhTheStoryOfRicky'', it really happens.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Alba Kiara''. Mostly because he ''really'' hated that one.

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: He ends his review of the ''E.T.'' videogame ([[TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 you know the one]]) so pissed at [[AWinnerIsYou its ending]] (or [[NoEnding lack thereof]]), he punches the screen [[CameraAbuse so hard he crashes it]].

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: As is the case for any [[LargeHam hammy]] online reviewer who [[MundaneMadeAwesome makes a big deal]] out of a movie's [[AccentuateTheNegative flaw]], Yotobi's reviews can be told apart from each other by their openings. One review in particular, the one for the Italian movie ''"Troppo Belli"'' ("Too handsome"), opens with him ''sobbing in a corner'', a treatment he didn't reserve even for the Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg movies he reviewed. Yeah, you've read that right. [[UpToEleven There are movies that are even worse.]] The movie's infamy is common knowledge in Italy, to the point that when Yotobi begs [[TheCameo other Italian internet reviewers]], they [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere don't even want to have anything to do with it.]]

to:

** In his review of ''Film/PumaMan'' he first likens Tony's Tony’s [[CannotSpitItOut inability to talk with anyone else]] to ''{{Series/Lost}}'', then, after the umpteenth time he does this, he blurts out that 'this is ''not'' like ''{{Series/Lost}}'', this '''is''' ''{{Series/Lost}}''!' Cue [[TalkingToHimself a reenactment of a scene from said TV show]].

* HollywoodAtheist: [[AvertedTrope Averted!]] Yotobi is an atheist, but he doesn't make a big deal about it, nor is he a {{Jerkass}} about it.

* CanisLatinicus: ''"Ad Minchiam"'' [[note]]''Minchia'' is Sicilian slang for penis, though it's used here in an expression that means "totally random with no sense whatsoever". Interestingly, minchia comes from the latin ''mentula'', which means the exact same thing.[[/note]]

* GenreSavvy: Yotobi, as stated above, is aware of the "SoBadItsGood" definition. In a crossover review with another Italian reviewer, "iltizioqualunque"[[note]]"il tizio qualunque" means "the everyman"[[/note]], the latter shows he knows the concept of "WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief" when discussing a shot of [[SpiderMan the Daily Bugle]] represented by [[TheyJustDidntCare a door with "Daily Bugle" written on it.]]
