[[http://www.youtube.com/user/DaThings1/ DaThings1]] is a WebAnimation/YouTubePoop maker who made a name for himself with his music video poops ([[ItMakesSenseInContext the literal music videos]], not [[AwesomeMusic/YouTubePoop YTPMVs]]). He has since included other media, including ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and movies into the mix, whilst avoiding endless repetition of "classic" sources. He often ([[NotSoAboveItAll But not always]]) uses clean humor, in stark contrast to other poopers such as Creator/{{CS188}} or {{Deepercutt}}.

One very known poop of his is ''The VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Hype Train Derailment'', a (perpetual) sequel to ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Soup or Smash Bros.]]'' (though [=DaThings1=] said it was never actually intended to be). Said poop included Etika and [=InfernoOmni=]. Surprisingly enough, Etika himself found out about the poop on {{Twitter}} and made a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63nUrtn5TvY reaction video]] on it.

Oh, and he [[http://ducttoast.deviantart.com/art/Forever-Alone-Vector-Original-362043008 also created the vector]] for [[Webcomic/RageComics Forever Alone Guy]].

In March 2016, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrQDwb4JG2o Dathings1 announced his channel would go on indefinite hiatus]].

!!Tropes Associated with [=DaThings1=]'s content:
* AllThereInTheManual: [[http://akriloth2160.deviantart.com/#/d483mow One viewer came up with an endorsed plot summary of the events in "Sweeney Todd Completes His Arm", which not only connects the jokes together in a fairly nonsensical plot, but expands on a few of the jokes.]]. This was inspired by a similar moment when another viewer had done the same thing with "[[Disney/TheLionKing The LOL King]]".
* [[invoked]]AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Sister Maria is a drug-obsessed hippie.
-->'''Maria''': I want to be ''stoned'', I want to ''trip'' BALLS, I want to be HIGH, I want to browse /r/trees... (''Caption: That's enough stoner jokes.'')
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: In-universe example in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkWa4Mcj-Gw Faces of Florida]]. At the beginning of the video Gwonam thinks that UsefulNotes/{{Florida}} is an island, which understandably results in the King and Zelda laughing at him.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The second half of "Jore Jarrison on Drinks" mostly consists of [[Music/TheBeatles George Harrison]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech ranting about]] YoutubePoop.
* CaptainObvious: You will find this [[RunningGag oh-so-many times]] in [=DaThings1'=]s poops.
** Sister Maria informs us that "The hills! Are hills!"
** The saddle expert informs that the saddle is, in fact, a saddle.
** The Phantom of The Opera updates Christine on that she has come there.
** The LotHT host lets us know that "there are [[RuleOfThree three]] temples in the temple temple temple".
* TheCoconutEffect: From ''Cinnamon Bunglasses at Night'':"To make the cinnamon roll look a little more realistic, I'm gonna make a real cinnamon roll and I'm just gonna paint it."
* DeadpanSnarker: Tends to slip into this when dealing with some of his more...[[FanDumb unsavory]] commenters.
* DiscreditedMeme: "Memes used to be funny!"[[invoked]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: In his ''Les Miserables'' YTP, Jajvert kills Joj Valjeaj for stealing bread. Is that better or worse than in the book? (where Valjean was imprisoned for 17 years instead.)
* DudeNotFunny: ''Soup or Smash Bros.'' opens with "Super Suicide Bros.-" ''(RecordScratch)'' "OFFENSIVE!", then a caption reading "Sorry. No suicide jokes."
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His early poops were more vulgar before he decided to pursue a more "family friendly" style.
* GayOption: In ''Date Mystery'', there is a chance that the player's Mystery Date will be a {{bifauxnen}}. [[BiTheWay Not that the girls in the commercial seem to mind it]].
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: [[Creator/MichaelRosen "Ring Around the Rosen"]] abruptly switches into a poop of the trailer for ''Literature/TheRing''.
** StealthPun: [[PunBasedTitle The title]], due to the above event.
** "Cinnamon Bunglasses at Night" simialrly switches from a poop of the "Sunglasses at Night" song to a craft video of someone making cinnamon bun-shaped soap.
** "The Sharkshank Redaction" is originally a Youtube Poop about sharks, but halfway through, Rog takes over [=Dathings1=] (as he says in the video), and the rest of the video is about Rog.
* HumanResources: ''Wow! It's Made: Revelations'' reveals that pillows are made from processed employees.
* IceCreamKoan: From ''The Mythsters'':"It may look nothing like Music/StevieWonder, but Stevie doesn't even know how he looks."
* NoExportForYou: From ''Soup or Smash Bros.'': "Super Soup Bros. for Wii U will never be released in North America, ever."[[invoked]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Sometimes the vulgarity slips back in.
* NoSympathy: Javert, naturally.
--> '''Valjean''': We were starving!
--> '''Javert''': You will starve again! [[LeetLingo LOL]]!
--> '''Valjean''': [[SarcasmMode LOL]].
* OverusedRunningGag: "Sus" jokes; i.e., taking the first half of a word and then reversing it. It can get very tiresome if that's not your thing.
* OverlyLongGag: In "Obama Bails Out", Obama spends a very long time explaining what his plan is not.
-->'''Obama''': It's not a plan to create jobs, it is not a plan to reduce the deficit, it is not a plan to build the deficit, it is not a plan to create jaj, it is not a plan to defecate, it is not a plan to sit, it is not a planet, it is not a plant, it is not a plan, it is not a plalp...
* RunningGag: [[DiscreditedMeme "Memes used to be funny"]]
** "Sus" appears pretty much [[OnceAnEpisode Five Times a Poop]].
** Also with "[[FlatJoy yay]]".
** Taking the syllable "De", and playing it three times while showing a picture of [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} King Dedede]].
** The extensive use of [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/supercut supercutting]].
** Also with {{Spoonerism}}.
** Mammoths.
** [[NunsAreFunny Nuns]].
** [[CaptainObvious People declaring the obvious]].
* SelfDeprecation: "Jaunt Ron Toot" features a section of rapid sus jokes, accompanied by babies laughing hysterically.
* SelfImposedChallenge: [=DaThings=] tries to avoid vulgarities in his videos, which presumably allows him to reach a wider audience. However, this severely limits his material and makes his remaining editing tricks more obvious (and often grating) to viewers.
* ShoutOut: He makes frequent reference to Creator/{{Cs188}}, particularly by inserting references to CS' {{Running Gag}}s of "[=HoH SiS=]" and "joj".
* TropesAreNotGood: He's attracted some criticism over how his videos lack in [[VulgarHumor mature humor]].
