[[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 WebAnimation/{{YouTube Poop}}ers out there. There's {{Deepercutt}}, there's WebAnimation/WalrusGuy, and there are some who lack the fame reached by those two. Of course, WebAnimation/{{NintendoBrad}} 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 [=YouTube=] Poop field, [=IAmTheGang=] was famous (or perhaps '''in'''famous, to those in the past who weren't fond of his deviation from the normal [=YouTube=] Pooping styles) for his extensive use of Microsoft Paint in his videos, using it for special effects that went beyond the kind of special effects that were done by other [=YouTube=] Poopers who utilized MS Paint. Combined with unusually dramatic storylines (which can be seen in his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mwiSE8UVk4 Timesplitters: Impending Perfection]], for example), his videos were unlike other [=YouTube=] Poops that anyone had seen at the time.

In a sad twist of fate, however, he's not active anymore within the [=YouTube=] Poop community, sadly joining the ranks of [=WalrusGuy=] and [=NintendoBrad=] and completely disappearing in a manner similar to the latter. 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]] instead decide to KeepCirculatingTheTapes anyway, akin to [=WalrusGuyMEMORIAL=] (who, unlike [=IAmThaGang=], got greenlighted by the original [=WalrusGuy=] himself).

Now this page has a separate [[{{YMMV/IAmTheGang}} YMMV page]], [[{{Funny/IAmTheGang}} Crowning Moment of Funny page]], and a [[{{Awesome/IAmTheGang}} Crowning Moment of Awesome page]].
Relevant tropes:
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: He really ''did'' do something completely different from the rest of the usual poops, in 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 [[UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} N64]], RLeeErmey as [[DrillSergeantNasty Sgt. Hartman]] from ''Film/FullMetalJacket'', [[VideoGame/TimeSplitters Cortez]] and [[Film/ThreeHundred Leonidas]].
** To sum it up, just look for his "VideoGame/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 all know about the King's obsession with "DINNER", so ''don't'' tell him that 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[=/=]{{Deconstruction}}: Laughably (yet heartwrechingly) parodied in "The fourth Zelda CD-i Game: The Return to Gamelon"; after seeing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WH_fX92510 the first video]], one would expect another CrowningMomentOfFunny after seeing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBErrP5m6pw "The Final Cutscene",]] and instead are presented 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 with him.
* {{Homage}}: "The Only Western Poop Anyone Has Ever Made" has two. The title references [[WebAnimation/WalrusGuy "The only Mama Luigi Poop Anyone Has Ever Made"]], while the Poop itself is a WholePlotReference to the saloon showdown in ''Film/HangEmHigh''.
* HilarityEnsues: Found in many of his videos, if not all of them. 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. And he does an excellent job at it.
** On the other hand, the very same Poop has a glaring case of {{mondegreen}}: the line "I'm innocent" is easy to be misheard as "I'm made of sand".
* TheManTheyCouldntHang: Morshu, in the above-mentioned Western Poop. He has his revenge.
* 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".
* {{Subversion}}: At the end of "Timesplitters: Impending Perfection", the "The End" text is significantly off-center to the left, leading one to think that [[TheEndOrIsIt "...?" is going to appear after the words]]. It doesn't.
* TakeThat: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biVLKjiSr-o "CD-i Can Still be Funny"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZwUYQ62-1g "Apoopcalypse Now!"]] both begin with this parody of "viewer discretion" warnings, as a Take That towards people who bashed [=IAmTheGang=] himself for his use of cutscenes from the CD-i games in his videos.

-->Viewer Discretion is Advised
* TookALevelInBadass: Pretty much everyone takes one in his videos, and probably ''all at once'' in "Apoopcalypse Now". It makes The King -- ''The King'' -- badass.
