[[http://www.youtube.com/user/BadLipReading Bad Lip Reading]] is a Website/YouTube channel that takes film segments, footage of politicians, and music videos of pop songs and writes new dialog designed to match the lip movements of the people in the video, with [[WordSaladLyrics little to no regard for making sense]]. In the case of music videos, they produce complete original songs, and substantial editing of the original video is also involved. They got their start in March 2011 with "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GaKaGwch0U Gang Fight]]", a GagDub of Rebecca Black's notorious viral video "Music/{{Friday}}", which took a song about having fun on the weekend and made it into a song about gang warfare and chicken. Most of their works execute a similar dramatic shift in style and tone from the original.

Thanks to an [[http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2011/11/bad_lip_reading.php anonymous interview]], we now know that BLR is produced by a single man in Texas, a "music producer, songwriter, and musician," but his identity remains a mystery. His songs are being sold completely legally on iTunes (being original works) but the videos may yet fall victim to copyright claims ([[ScrewedByTheLawyers as "Dirty Spaceman" and "(Rockin') All Nite Long" already have]]). A few, like "Trick the Bridesmaid," are based on public domain works and so safe from takedowns.

----
!!Tropes appearing in Bad Lip Reading clips:

* AboveTheInfluence: Alejandro, who is brave, and dapper, and '''''NOT DRUNK!!'''''
* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Although most of their lyrics are quite natural, BLR is sometimes guilty of this, as in this line from "Russian Unicorn":
-->I want to '''shave''' that mustache and then '''have''' gelato!
** From Black Umbrella:
---> "I'ma get dumb and bang a wiz'''ard'''!"
* AccidentalMisnaming: Poor President Obama gets called two different names by two different debate commentators: "Ahmed" by Jim Lehrer and "Percy" by Bob Schieffer. Lehrer also calls Mitt Romney "Matt."
* ActionHeroBabysitter: Tyreese to Lizzie, Mika and Judith. Just taking the developments from ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' and running with them, really.
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Music/MichaelBuble loved "Russian Unicorn." Gotye and Josh Hutcherson thought "Kicked Your Monkey" and "Hunger Game" respectively were good enough to pass on via {{Twitter}}, and Miley Cyrus actually tweeted "Black Umbrella" to Snoop Dogg.
** Judging by the comments, Ron Paul supporters, a notoriously touchy contingent, appeared to have this reaction when he got the BLR treatment. [[http://www.politico.com/blogs/click/1011/Bachmann_loves_her_bad_lipreading_video.html Michelle Bachmann]], Rick Perry and [[http://www.mrctv.org/videos/herman-cain-watches-bad-lip-reading-spoof-video-him-and-reacts-everybody-needs-toucan-stubs Herman Cain]] all loved their videos, too.
** Harry from OneDirection thought Shadow Pico was hysterical as well, and linked to it on his personal Twitter.
** An NFL fan actually made a giant orange peanut and brought it to a Minnesota Vikings game, where he asked Adrian Peterson to sign it. [[http://www.startribune.com/sports/blogs/188372911.html Peterson gladly accepted.]]
* AdaptationDistillation: Some of BLR's videos are taken from more than one song. For instance, "Morning Dew" is taken from ''three'' songs, "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars, "Alejandro" by Lady Gaga and "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys
* AdaptationExpansion: "That Should Be Me" was divided [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0GutrcKbRM into]] ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gXotGSe_JE two]]'' Bad Lip Readings.
* {{Adorkable}}: Petey when he tries to talk to a girl with his high pitched voice .
-->'''Petey''': How do you feel about people who go "Hadouken"?
* AffablyEvil:
** Mitt Romney is very good company, despite being a racist cannibal.
** Petey in "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" EXTENDED TRAILER seems like some shy, {{Adorkable}} nerd who thinks he's [[EvilIsSexy an evil stud-muffin]], but a few scenes after his introduction he reveals he put ''kitten meat'' in everyone's burgers. An extended scene even has him taunt a nauseous Eddie by sending him a picture of himself holding up a cat with the caption "Dessert?".
** The zombies are very polite, and seem to just want to talk or even sing.
-->'''Zombie''': ''(singing)'' I'm gonna say "Hi" to the guy with the knife!\\
(''Daryl tries to stab zombie)''\\
'''Zombie''': Hi!
* TheAlcoholic:
** Nicki Minaj, according to "Dirty Spaceman":
-->But I'm feeling fine
-->I'm on bottle 99
** Rebecca Black's friend in "Gang Fight"; she's bombed, by the way.
** Music/TaylorSwift is also "un-sober."
** Music/MichaelBuble drinks fire water.
** Double Take in "Time To Rock": "I have to drink, and that'll make it good."
** [[{{Music/Coldplay}} Chris Martin]] loves his champagne.
** [[Film/TheHungerGames Cinna]] is drunk enough to try and hit on Katniss
** According to [[{{Characters/GameOfThronesHouseTargaryen}} Denise]], her friend Beth overdrinks. So much so that she unrolls Denise's socks.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Expect any artist appearing in a song to end up a ''lot'' less innocent than their ordinary public image. [[invoked]]
** Music/RebeccaBlack becomes a violent gang member who associates with neo-Nazis.
** Music/TaylorSwift becomes a party girl into drinking.
** Taylor Swift is also mentioned in the 2013 Nominees video. It's...erm...interesting.
--> "I have Taylor Swift in a big coffin. She wanted to fight me. She was a firewalker. She has five legs! And she drooled on my couch."
** [[Music/BlackEyedPeas Fergie's]] got "bowel issues."
** [[RascalFlatts Gary LeVox]] is a BigEater, and possibly also a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
** Who knew [[Music/TheBeeGees Barry Gibb]] was [[TooKinkyToTorture masochistic]]?
** And Michael Buble is an outright MemeticSexGod (or at least the god of bad roommates), a BigEater and possibly an AgentMulder.[[invoked]]
---> "If your body's a secret girl, then you about to spill it"
** The trend is ''inverted'' in "Rockin' All Night Long" when Wiz Khalifa is revealed to be the DoggedNiceGuy for Taylor.
---> "Damn, I got carsick by the swings, [[NeverLiveItDown and she see me dry heaving on the interstate]]"
** James Blunt, meanwhile, is a NightmareFuelStationAttendant who hates dogs.
** Newt Gingrich is a drugged-up party animal with a panty fetish and possible criminal connections.
** {{Music/Gotye}} is an unapologetic animal abuser.
** Chris Martin is a [[InterspeciesRomance zoophile]] and a slacker who watches ''{{Series/LOST}}'' all day.
** Paul Ryan is a self-proclaimed rock star who's dorm buddies with Mitt Romney and has the ability to warp the spaceľtime continuum.
** [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan Gwen Stacy]] has a fake leg.
** The members of Music/OneDirection are part of a demon-summoning cult.
* {{Angrish}}: apl.de.ap in "Everybody Poops":
--> And I hate those greenish potatoes with them '''soggy fish stiiiiiiicks!''' '''''┼┼┼!!!'''''
* AnythingButThat: Herman Cain has a deep-seated fear of spiders. And big potato moths. Big potato moths!
** Music/JayZ refuses to limbo in Idaho.
* ApologeticAttacker: One of the zombies in ''More The Walking And Talking Dead'' repeatedly says sorry after a woman who looks drunk hits him with a glass bottle.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Rebecca Black is singing about paying by blood, making war, gang fights and ...[[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} chicken.]]
** [[TheWalkingDead Daryl Dixon]]'s idea of a birthday party involves "flaming cars, and trailer folks, and shrimp dogs, and pizza".
* ArtifactTitle: Usually averted.
** The name "Dirty Spaceman" [[PragmaticAdaptation actually justifies the sci-fi setting]]) - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ii5IUihNuno Black Umbrella]] is only ''implied'' to be a new weed ie. "the right stuff", and we're never certain if the Russian Unicorn, like those left-nut-targeting monsters, ever existed (this may be justified by the whole video being an ImagineSpot).
** As a [=YouTube=] comment points out, the toxic waste barrels in "Boom Boom Pow" make more sense if they're filled with poop.
** "Yeti" takes the cake by ''adding'' a [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]] outfit to stand in for the titular creature.
* ArtificialLimbs: [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan Gwen Stacy]] has a wooden leg, which Peter thinks is really gross. Needless to say, Gwen is offended when she finds out.
* AscendedExtra: [[TheWalkingDead Carl Grimes]] got two or three lines in the first "The Walking (And Talking) Dead". In the second one he gets ''his own musical number!''
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The "foreign language" spoken in "Shadow Pico" is essentially gibberish.
* AssShove: Poor Joe Biden.
--> "My friends want to shave my behind. They're putting ants into my behind! A parakeet is ''on my behind!'' '''Why are you people clapping?!''' Thick concrete is ''up my behind!'' ...Pikachu!!!"
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Jim Lehrer tries to touch a butterfly in front of him, not noticing that "Ahmed"[[spoiler:, i.e. Obama,]] has fallen asleep.
* AuthorAppeal: Despite the lean towards spoken-word clips nowadays, musical numbers tend to find their way in. The "Broadway" thing from [[Series/TheWalkingDead The Walking (and Talking) Dead"]], for one.
* AutoTune: Mostly in "Everybody Poops" and "Dirty Spaceman".
* AxCrazy: [[{{Yandere}} Clove]] goes "loco crazy" after Katniss goes out with her boyfriend Brian.
* BadassBoast:
** Jay-Z's "[[Franchise/StarWars I'm Han, you're Greedo]]" definitely counts.
** From Michelle Bachmann: "If I assault you, your arm wouldn't defend you. It's better to not do it."
** Gotye's "I'm fighting with ninja gloves"
** Mitt Romney's "I'm a hot taco." and "I'm like Comicbook/JudgeDredd."
** Jim Lehrer's "Go right off, and I'll defeat 17 bears while you're gone."
** Ludacris' "I'm the magic man at the magic school."
** Miley Cyrus' "Oh my gosh, there's never gonna be a better Padawan than me"
** Wiz Khalifa's "I'm an alchemist, the beat is my base metal"
** [[Series/GameOfThrones Tyrion's]] "I oughta smack you till Friday, and it only Wednesday" may not be the typical kind, but it sticks in the head well enough.
* BastardBoyfriend: Edward Cullen, in the ''More Twilight'' video. He proposes making stew out of Bella's pet rabbit then gets drunk and forgets to buy her Christmas present.
** Peter Parker. He eats Gwen's pets, raps about how gross her fake leg is, and threatens to slap her because he hates her food.
* BearsAreBadNews: During the first presidential debate, Jim Lehrer warns Mitt Romney that the sofa bears don't know that he can be sent whooshing into space if he were a robot. He then tells Romney and Obama to go right off, [[LetsGetDangerous and that he'll defeat]] '''[[CrazyAwesome 17]]''' [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass bears]] [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome while they're gone.]]
* BeastlyBloodsports: The lyric "I'm gonna find a chicken fight" in "Everybody Poops".
* BeAWhoreToGetYourMan: from "Rockin' All Night Long":
-->You can always count on me to show those other girls just how to lay it down, down, down.
-->...Every girl get they freak on please, you are the one that can bring him to his knees
* BelligerentSexualTension: Katniss claims that Peeta knows he's attracted to her as she slams him into a wall and yells at him
-->'''Katniss''': You ''know'' you wanna go ''dance'' with me.
* BerserkButton: Greenish potatoes and soggy fishsticks for apl.de.ap (re. "Everybody Poops")
** Mind your manners when you're on Ludacris' mountain, [[DisproportionateRetribution or you will be shot.]] [[FelonyMisdemeanor Twice.]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice And your corpse looted by]] Music/TheBeeGees. [[spoiler:If the ghetto hobbit with an Uzi is around, that is.]] At the very least, Ludacris will definitely use karate on you.
** Don't call "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" a Renaissance fair if you don't want the wrath of [[Series/GameOfThrones "Eddie" Stark]] on you.
** There's one NFL'er who gets ''really'' upset at people touching someone's "fuzzy cape" (More NFL).
* BigEater: Their AlternateCharacterInterpretation of Rascal Flatts' Gary [=LeVox=] seems to be this. "Hot Jumping Beans" is about food to begin with, but while Music/JustinBieber mainly sticks to the topic of beans, [=LeVox=] keeps bringing up other kinds of food.
-->'''BACON!!!''' Yeah, whoo... ''ham.''
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_jumping_bean Justin has...interesting culinary tastes.]]
--->'''I'M HUNGRY!!!'''
** Deconstructed in "Russian Unicorn":
---> "I should not have ate those Cajun rice and beans... [[AesopAmnesia Them strawberries look juicy]]"
** Also seems to apply to Rick Perry in his soundbite, where he spontaneously lists food and proclaims that he is "bored by famine."
** Obama in Trick the Bridesmaids lists food America has been short on.
** The Yeti, who even gets called out on it.
** Bob Schieffer seems to have a thing for bacon-crusted rolls, comparing them to crack-filled sandwiches. This is followed by Mitt Romney proclaiming his love for [[YourFavorite ground meat]] [[{{Squick}} on spinach]] and "[[IntoxicationEnsues scum brownies]]".
** Deconstructed with Jacob Black. Apparently, even werewolves have problems with soul food, especially if it's made with porpoise meat.
** Give Herman Cain a large plate of McDonalds special, and he'll sing, sing, sing about it.
** Adrian Peterson has exotic interests in food which includes egg rolls, cookies, stingrays, and [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo double-sided Scooby-Snacks.]] He also has a thing for orange peanuts, and publicly accepted an interviewer when she offered one.
** Peter Parker ate Gwen's pig, Mr. Peaches, and feathered duck, Ruffles. He likes juicy pork.
** [[Series/GameOfThrones Bobby B]] credits his gut to beer and powdered donuts.
--> It's powerful, yeah, powdered ''sugaaaaaaar!''
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: Take a guess.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Implied to be the case for Alejandro; at the very least, it was good enough for Nicki Minaj.
* BilingualBonus: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjaZNYSt7o0 "Russian Unicorn"]] -- 'Российский единорог' is a literal Russian translation of the name for the eponymous creature.
* BlackSpeech: The parts that were not "translated" in "Shadow Pico" are implied to be this.
* BlahBlahBlah: [[Series/GameOfThrones Varys taunting Petyr Baelish]] is... decidedly simpler in this version.
* BlatantLies: In La Fway.
-->'''Beyonce''': [[TitleDrop La Fway]] Fway, babe, I'll try to use my words. ''(incomprehensible gibberish)'' I'll punch your neck!
* BodySnatcher: Gotye in ''Kicked Your Monkey''
-->"I'm body snatching you and then I'ma change your diaper!"
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: From "(Rockin') All Nite Long":
--> '''Whiz Khalifa''': Bring me potatoes. And meat. And greens. And weed.
** "Dirty Spaceman" gives us "River deep, mountain high, shave my pubes".
** "Beard With Glue" has a very jarring one:
--> I saw your friends drowning in blood.
** "Kicked Your Monkey" gets dangerous pretty fast:
--> Been dreaming I could strangle you and it felt so wonderful.
** From Herman Cain:
-->All you can do is give that woodchuck a tuna melt, or romantic shoes, or a metal skull crusher.
* BriefAccentImitation: Katniss briefly switches to a Southernish accent.
-->"And the police ate Timothay!"
* BrickJoke:
** At the meta level - NickiMinaj brings up the name "Alejandro" in "Dirty Spaceman", and 2 videos later, "Alejandro" becomes the first Music/LadyGaga video used by BLR.
** A minor one in "The Walking and Talking Dead"; A woman points a gun at Rick and tells him she's taking away his banjo in the second scene. In the fourth scene, Rick mentions a woman thug stole his banjo.
* BuffySpeak: [[{{Literature/Twilight}} Bella learns about Edward]]'s fish preparation method and says "that's so loser-ly".
** In More NFL, Peyton Manning is asked what kinds of things [[{{Squick}} gross him out]]. One of the items on his list is "doo-dads that scratch the wood. Like, scratchy things, y'know?"
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Rick Santorum. According to him, he's crazy, [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight and he's right]].
* CallBack: At the end of "Russian Unicorn", a muzak version of "Everybody Poops" can be heard playing in the background.
** Came full circle with "The Walking (and Talking) Dead", which features one scene where Rick and Glen are driving somewhere in a car. "Russian Unicorn" can be heard playing on the car's radio.
** Ludacris actually [[ShoutOut shouting out]] "Gang FIGHT!" in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmobkT8IuxM "Magic Man"]]. The intro for "Gang Fight" can be heard in some later videos as a reverse-VanityPlate.
** And "Magic Man" brings up windmills, right after "Black Umbrella" did.
** You can hear "Morning Dew", "Russian Unicorn", ''and'' the tune from the end of "Medieval Land Fun Time World" in "Twilight III".
*** The book on moss shown in "Twilight III" is credited to T(iny) T(immy) Tokyo, who was mentioned in "Black Umbrella".
** [[TheWalkingDead Shane Walsh]] is voiced the same as [[GameOfThrones "Jimmy Whisper"]].
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Rick Santorum:
-->The first time I drank, I had my shoes under my arm. Because I mean I was ''so'' sick, I mean, ''so'' barftastic. I puked on the pizza.
* CaptainObvious: From "More NFL":
--> "A baby is a little man." "A chair is somewhere to sit."
* ClearMyName: Ludacris denies shooting the hobbit on his mountain, claiming it was a ghetto hobbit with an uzi.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Most of the people who get the BLR treatment come out this way.
* ComicSutra: The "Mary Lunch Limbo", a favorite maneuver of Newt Gingrich, involving [[NoodleImplements four porpoises and a wet Nigerian]].
* CoolPet: Michael Buble's pet porcupine, Zazoom. Though his trick is leaving his scent on people's graves...
** Mitt Romney tamed a parrot named Mr. Future.
* CoolSword: MileyCyrus' plasma sword. [[FridgeBrilliance She's Padawan material, y'know.]]
* CrossdressingVoices As noted earlier, BLR is all the work of one man, which means he ends up gag-dubbing with female voices a lot. Though there's probably some studio trickery involved, his female singing voice is pretty convincing.
* CrossoverCosmology: [[Literature/TheLordofTheRings Hobbits]] and [[Franchise/StarWars Padawans]] are both apparently well-known real beings in the Bad Lip Reading 'verse.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Songs about fun and partying become songs about gang warfare and drugs. Even songs about love can be turned movie trailers about tribes summoning demons.
* ADateWithRosiePalms:
-->'''Jay-Z:''' Makin' happy on my floor, [[RagingStiffie got a stiffle]].
** Mitt Romney also sees this as a problem, and addresses the issue at the beginning of "More Mitt":
-->'''Mitt''': So many people are rubbing on their messy parts. It's awful, awkward, and germy. Come on, people. I mean, I know it ''feels'' good... but we're embarrassed.
* DeadpanSnarker: Katniss.
* DirtyOldMan: Newt Gingrich, who also has this reputation in RealLife.
** An [=NFL=] commentator, who looks about the same age as Newt, sings about "pretty female parts" into his headset.
* {{Dissimile}}: In "Hunger Games":
--> Peeta: "Every night, I want you to hold Marvin the Cat... He's not a real cat."
* DisproportionateRetribution: "Everybody Poops":
-->You'll never find a human that steals school supplies
-->And if you do
-->Let me know who (who)
-->And I'll beat him down.
** will.i.am will also beat you down if you make eye contact with him, because that's not scary.
** A weird witch gagged Rick Santorum for swearing and having porn.
* DreadfulMusician: Paul Ryan.
* DumbIsGood: The Double Take girls seem to believe this, since they mention that they like "dum-dums".
* EatsBabies: Nicki Minaj, in "Dirty Spaceman" would "love to eat a bag of children" and "cook 'em 'over easy' on a Monday"
* EatTheDog: [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward]] expresses a desire to eat Bella's pet rabbit in "More Twilight" and [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan Peter]] eats Gwen's pet pig and feathered duck in "Peter and Gwen" just because he likes juicy pork.
** Petey Baelish serves the group kitten meat.
---> What? They're just baby cats, jeez.
* EldritchAbomination: It's highly implied that "Shadow Pico" is one of these.
** TaylorSwift is a firewalker with five legs. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And she drools on couches.]]
* EpicRocking: "Morning Dew."
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Special mention must be made of the Rick Santorum video for getting this over with ''in the first line''.
--> [[InsaneTrollLogic "I'm crazy... and I'm right."]]
* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: Played with in "LA FWAY" in which Beyonce's scatting is subtitled in gibberish.
* EveryoneHasStandards: One of the NFL players likes to kick his cat, but only when she's not pregnant.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Apparently there weren't enough of them in the "Lazy Song" clips, so Jay-Z brought his own. (re. "Morning Dew").
** Inverted in "Beard With Glue", in which a costumed gorilla ate Ben. (Although a gorilla is technically not a monkey.) This might be why Double Take hates gorillas.
** Gotye [[KickTheDog kicked one]] right before he [[BestialityIsDepraved "used" a goat.]]
* EveryoneIsBi: Implied to be the case in "Twilight III".
-->'''Carlisle''': I believe he said we should all make out.
-->'''Rosalie''': I thought that we just did!
* EvilLaugh: Mitt Romney has one.
-->I'm very good company. [=EhahahahahAHAHAHAHAHA=]!
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The premise at least; the actual songs, not so much.
* ExtremeOmnivore: One of the Double Take girls admits to eating a big rock.
* FakeShemp: "Yeti" has added footage of Chris Martin running after the Yeti. Since they couldn't get the ''real'' Chris Martin, they used a lookalike wearing his outfit from the video, who is almost always filmed from behind (except for one quick shot incorporating green-screened footage from "The Scientist")
* FantasticRacism: TheBlackEyedPeas believe androids should be destroyed. Apl.de.ap appears to agree with the rest, despite being a [[BoomerangBigot soft machine man]].
* {{Flanderisation}}: Played deadly straight in "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" (adapted from ''Series/GameOfThrones'', mind you), despite being a deliberate LighterAndSofter interpretation (PlayedForLaughs of course).
* FollowTheLeader: Bad Lip Reading in other languages. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rn7xzI64Ln4 It had to happen.]]
** Bad Lip Reading itself is this to [[http://www.dayjoborchestra.com/ Dayjob Orchestra.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the things said by Gary [=LeVox=] near the end of "Asian Baby", the first BLR based around Justin Bieber and Rascal Flatts' "That Should Be Me," is "Cheese fries, next time," said directly to the viewer. The ''second'' BLR based around "That Should Be Me?" [[spoiler:The food-themed "Hot Jumping Beans".]]
* FreezeFrameBonus
** The still of Ludacris and his "magic goose" in "Magic Man" (shown right after the "Gang Fight" CallBack). It's shown just long enough to register, but the pause button is needed to make out the funnier details.
** Also, in "(Rockin') All Nite Long", once TaylorSwift appears to be checking her armpit odor, "sniff" appears on the screen for a very short time. [[BrickJoke Turns out it corresponds to a later verse where shes sniffing a flower.]]
** Happens again in "Dirty Spaceman", with a reflection of the Dirty Spaceman in the tv screen before it's switched on, and will.i.am edited to look like a pink bunny at 3:23.
** Yet again in "Morning Dew," with a monkey appearing on Jay-Z's shoulder at 1:41. The still of Jay-Z edited to look like Han Solo might also count, but it's up for a bit longer than most such shots. There's also a shot around 3:23 where BrunoMars holds up a picture he drew of a pink ice castle, a green hotdog, and 'three light snacks.'
** There are a few quick shots in the buildup part of "Shadow Pico" that shows Louis turning into a vampire.
** Those signs added to "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD".
* FriendlyEnemy
** Bruno Mars is gonna send flowers to all his foes.
** Matt Birk of the Baltimore Ravens wants to make Andrew Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals a mai tai. Unless it's a bother.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Listen to the background chatter at the end of "Russian Unicorn".
-->'''Girl 1:''' [[spoiler: Did he say he drinks fire water?]]
-->'''Girl 2:''' [[spoiler: He thinks monsters are trying to get his testicles.]]
** Now listen to the background music playing in the same scene. [[spoiler: It's a muzak version of Everybody Poops.]]
*** Something similar is done in "The Walking (And Talking) Dead" - While Glenn and Rick are talking in the truck, "Russian Unicorn" can be heard faintly on the car radio.
* GagDub: As applied to pop music and politicians.
* GaggingOnYourWords: Barack Obama can't quite bring himself to say "Elvis Presley had sex appeal" as part of his being sworn in as president.
* GenreShift: BLR has shifted from music videos to politicians to movies and TV shows.
* GlamourFailure: Being afraid to make eye contact is a sign that you're an android, as is a lack of defecation.
* AGoodNameForARockBand: In "Paul Ryan's Video Diary", Paul Ryan mentions that his band can't use the name "Steak Baby" anymore, so he rattles off some other names they've been considering. Among these are "Porky Puff", "Joy Nuts", "Booty Reactions", "Tree Pie" and "Slutnick".
* GRatedSex: Katniss just plants one on Peeta in "Hunger Games".
--> '''Peeta''': And that's how babies grow?
--> '''Katniss''': You got to be kidding.
--> '''Peeta''': It's not?
** Terry gives Susie a face lick in "Medieval Land Fun-Time World." She tastes goooood.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: If it even is one, in "Shadow Pico".
** GratuitousEnglish: Invoked in "Shadow Pico" to conserve the foreign art house movie feeling.
* {{Gumby}}: Nicki Minaj hates him more than you.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Taylor Swift from "Rockin' All Nite Long":
--> And I wanna have fun.
--> Un-sober, I'm thinking you could hook me up
--> With a bottle of Platinum Patron
* HaveIMentionedIAmSexuallyActiveToday: From "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD":
--> '''Petey''': Kind sir, I'm the evil stud muffin.\\
'''Eddie''': Really?\\
'''Petey''': You bet. I got girls in my dreams.
** Jo-Jo likes to get freaky, you know what I mean?
* HealthcareMotivation: The deleted scenes of "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" reveal that Eddie is trying to run the park because his daughter needs "toe surgery".
* HotterAndSexier: BLR's naughty reinterpretations of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and Michael BublÚ have left many Website/YouTube commenters finding them more attractive than before, despite all video clips being taken straight from the original videos.
** Considering the nature of Bad Lip Reading means [[FridgeBrilliance people are going to focus on their lips...]]
* HumiliationConga:
--> '''Music/LadyGaga:''' "A midget said "[[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Speak with an accent]]", so I did, just so I could steal his Porsche [[BondageIsBad while he was tied to a stake...]] [[KickTheDog in the rain]]"
* {{Hypocrite}}: Mitt Romney makes multiple YourMom statements... But he doesn't want his son speaking bad about his mother, even ''if'' he's a party rapper.
* HypocriticalHumor: Rick Perry cracks up at the nonsensical statements made by his opponents during debates, when he did the same thing in RealLife.
* IAteWhat: Eddie Stark is shocked to discover Petey put kitten meat in the burgers.
* ImAHumanitarian: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MufJJ9Yj8Mw "Dirty Spaceman"]]: "I'd love to eat a bag of children, cook 'em over easy on a Monday"
* ImaginaryFriend: Marvin the Cat may be this, since Peeta asks Katniss to hug him every night before admitting that Marvin isn't a real cat.
* ImplausibleDeniability: Ludacris vehemently denies shooting that hobbit on his mountain, instead blaming "a ghetto hobbit with an Uzi". Although he does admit to using karate on the hobbit.
* ImStandingRightHere: This moment from "[[Series/TheWalkingDead The Walking (and Talking) Dead]]":
--> '''Glenn''': I want a brown girl!\\
'''Maggie''': Hey, psst, I'm standing right here...\\
'''Glenn''': She's so white and not exotic! I want another one!
* InAWorld:
-->'''Narrator:'''...that tore them [One Direction] apart. Only one thing can [[PuttingTheBandBackTogether bring them back together.]]
* IncestIsRelative: [[Series/GameOfThrones Tyrion hitting on Cersei]] comes across as playful banter instead. ''Joffrey'' on Cersei on the other hand:
--> '''Joffrey Baratheon''': I bet you were a vaguely hot woman, back in your day. *slap*
** From "Twilight III":
-->'''Carlyle''': "I think he said we should all make out."\\
'''Rosalie''': "I thought we just did!"
* InsistentTerminology: "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" is a theme park, ''NOT a Renaissance fair''.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Russian Unicorn"
** will.i.am also recounts this tale during "Dirty Spaceman":
--> All these teenage chickenheads call me all night\\
One that looked like [[Film/TheFly Brundlefly]] said to me,\\
"Can you leave your wrinkled willie glue inside my ocean, please?"\\
[[SubvertedTrope But I didn't 'cause her booty flat, flat, flat]]\\
Yeah, I'm a genius, trust me it was fully sa-a-aa-ad...
* InterspeciesRomance: "Yeti".
* IntoxicationEnsues: Double Take in "Time to Rock." Also TheStinger at the end of "YETI":
-->'''Chris Martin''': IIIIII love my cham-paagne, I'm ''floooooating''...
* ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: Due to the fact that the whole thing is WordSalad, a ''lot'' of things make no sense, or make sense but are brought up for no reason.
* JabbaTableManners: "I ate the cookie, then I gave it back to Benny."
* {{Jerkass}}:
** Whoever the song "Beard With Glue" is about. He sneaks off and punches little orphaned Brazilians, and he drowned his friends in blood. He's so bad that a bullfrog hates him and James Blunt hopes he falls on his burger and fries.
** Gotye kicks monkeys, has wonderful dreams about strangling people, works with the Sith, and if you don't buy his song on iTunes, he'll use your goat, whatever that means.
** The girl at the end of the "More Mitt" video. She interrupts Mitt's speech to call out "I wish you would drown".
** Possibly also Mitt Romney himself. He tied up a chicken and gave a whipping to a disabled, he ate Fifi, and he will force spiders and badgers on his enemies. He might also be mildly racist.
** Edward Cullen. In "More Twillight", he suggests making stew out of Bella's dead rabbit, forgets to buy Bella's Christmas present, and slaps a fish for some reason, and in the first video he screams at Bella for eating a leftover piece of cake.
** Joe Biden said in a debate that "poor people can suck it!". Paul Ryan claims he's made out of ice.
** One of the NFL coaches calls himself a jerk because he told a girl to pick up her floor bags because she ain't living in Southeast Asia.
** A midget told Lady Gaga to speak with an accent, so she did, just so she could steal his Porsche while he was tied to a stake. [[TraumaCongaLine In the rain]].
** Michael Buble soils his underwear and first tries to blame it on some guy before blaming it on the girl he's singing to, and in TheStinger he reveals that he ''poisoned his dog''.
* KickTheDog: Cinna smiles cruelly as he asks Katniss who would stop them trying to get together, seeing as her father [[DisappearedDad is dead]]
* KindheartedCatLover: Rick Santorum borrowed meat to provide for his puddy tat.
* {{Le Film Artistique}}: Parodied in Shadow Pico.
-->''"[[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible I am left alone with no spoons or towels, and the rain is in my heart!]]"''
* LethalChef: [[{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen.]]
-->'''Bella''': "You slapped a fish! You punched it! Why would you hit it?"\\
'''Edward''': "I wanted to make some seafood..."
** In "More Twilight", Edward even plans to [[EatTheDog cook Bella's dead pet rabbit]], claiming it would make good stew.
** Do not let [[Series/GameOfThrones Petyr Baelish]] make dinner unless you like [[spoiler:[[IAteWhat kitten meat]].]]
* LiteralMusicVideo: Although not strict literal music videos, many of the lyrics are inspired by things going on in the video, like in "Black Umbrella (The Right Stuff)": "Dude's so crazy, he tryin' to sell me hubcaps." and "Please help me down from this swing"
** "Kicked Your Monkey" does this deliberately to fill a segment left lyric-less in the original.
---> "Lines, lines, intersecting. Ooooh, lines, lines, intersecting now with paint."
* LittleMissBadass: Rebecca Black is suddenly a lot of bearable when she's singing about paying by blood, making war, gang fights...[[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} and chicken.]]
* LockedInARoom: In the Extended edition of ''La Bibbida Bibba Dum'' from "The Walking (And Talking) Dead" the governor reveals that there is a girl in his basement. Who probably thinks he's a creep.
* LyricalDissonance
* MagicalNegro: Ludacris claims to be a literal example of this in "Magic Man".
* ManChild: San Francisco [=49ers=] coach Jim Harbaugh in "THE NFL" just isn't able to wait for his cake.
-->'''Jim Harbaugh''': I want it now! I want cake NOW! [beat] I want it now!
* ManOfAThousandVoices: In [[http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2011/11/bad_lip_reading.php an anonymous interview with the Village Voice]], the man behind the videos claims to do all the voices himself, including the female ones.
--> "I play all the parts and sing all the vocals. Even the girl parts are me. It's a party-trick of mine: I can do a girl voice. I used to call up my friends and speak in the girl voice and they wouldn't know who it was. It's just a thing I can do. But there's also some electronic trickery involved."
* MelismaticVocals: "La Fway".
* TheMerch: [[http://badlipreading.spreadshirt.com/ Bad Lip Reading T-shirts exist!]]
* {{Narcissist}}: Jacob Black
-->'''Jacob''': I'm not good... looking. [{{Beat}}] I's just kidding. Yeah I am.
* NobodyPoops: Inverted. [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Unless you're an android]], [[DisproportionateRetribution in which case, you should be destroyed]].
** And Fergie's got "bowel issues".
* NoodleIncident: It took forever to get a ghost out of Nicki Minaj's house, that stupid poltergeist!
** Barack Obama's college had one man who made goats tell time (Trick the Bridesmaid)
* NoPlotNoProblem: As each episode is pure WordSalad, almost every video is this. It's rare to so much as find two related conversations in different scenes of the same video.
** "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" EXTENDED TRAILER is the sole aversion of this, where it's quickly established that it's about Eddie Stark trying to run a Medieval Theme park, which could become the best of its kind in the world were it not for the fact that most of the employees "work as hard as a bucket of apples". As such, while it is as disjointed as one would expect from a regular trailer, it is possible to identify actual plot threads and character types from the pieces shown.
* NoTrueScotsman: will.i.am would like you to know that you'll never find a human that steals school supplies. But if you do, let him know who, and he'll beat 'em down.
* NoYay: {{Invoked}}; will.i.am was once solicited by a teenage chickenhead who looked like [[Film/TheFly Brundlefly]], but he turned her down [[ComicallyMissingThePoint because her booty flat, flat, flat]].
* ObligatoryBondageSong: The Bee Gees' parts of "Magic Man".
* OneOfUs: In-Universe. Mitt Romney is apparently quite a gamer.
* OneSteveLimit: Leaving out the NickiMinaj bits in "Magic Man" while she gets due focus in "Dirty Spaceman" seems influenced by this trope. Averted with two Music/JustinBieber videos out (though the second seems like a deliberate followup to the first).
* OnlySaneEmployee: Eddie Stark in "Medieval Land Fun-Time World". He's trying to get the theme park ready for its opening, but everyone else works as hard as "a bucket of apples".
* OnlySaneMan:
** In the Newt Gingrich clip, Michele Bachmann comes across as this during the debate.
** Eddie Stark certainly appears to be this in "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" EXTENDED TRAILER.
** Rick spends the end of ''The Walking (and Talking) Dead'' trying to get the governor to stop singing.
** Tyreese from ''More The Walking And Talking Dead'' is the first person in BLR history to get annoyed by the spontaneous topic change.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: The zombies in ''The Walking (and Talking) Dead'' series can speak and occasionally try to sing, especially in the second video.
* {{Parody}}: Or satire, depending on your point of view. Either one is protected under United States fair use law and BLR makes an effort to present the video clips differently from the original video, potentially to avoid copyright violations. Whether this works is yet to be determined.
** "Gang Fight" fast forwarded through the part of the "Friday" video where Rebecca Black sang the infamous "Yesterday it was Thursday..." lines and goes straight to the rapper in the car, apparently because they didn't write anything for that part of the video. This makes "Gang Fight" about 40 seconds shorter than the original video.
** The images for "Everybody Poops" are (until the end) flipped from the original version of "Boom Boom Pow" and the part where Fergie sings "People in the place..." is used twice in "Everybody Poops" so she can be seen singing "When I'm on the pot..." twice.
** Clips from rap videos are inserted into "Black Umbrella (The Right Stuff)" and "(Rockin') All Nite Long", both parodies of songs not containing any rapping. Of special note, the clips of Wiz Khalifa come from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWAGLkyxQG0 "Black and Yellow"]] which ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin actually were black and yellow]]'' but have been tinted blue here.
** "Magic Man" actually ''omits'' all of NickiMinaj's footage from the original, in favor of the apparently random [=BeeGees=] clips from "Too Much Heaven".
** "Dirty Spaceman" is edited so that it appears you are watching the video via a monitor on the ship of the Dirty Spaceman.
*** It didn't stop UMG from taking it down, though.
** Putting certain words on screen may also be an effort to ensure the videos are recognized as parody.
** "Russian Unicorn" appears to be the least altered from the original, although it does have the usual BLR trope of putting certain phrases on the screen.
** At the other end of the scale, since "Morning Dew" has clips from three videos, it would be the ''most'' altered of all the BLR vidoes.
** Like "Everybody Poops", "Beard With Glue" flips the original video for "You're Beautiful" (unlike the above mentioned, however, this stays the same for the entire video). It also adds around another 40 seconds to the video by reversing the part where Music/JamesBlunt empties his pockets, making it look like after he puts everything out, he puts them back into his pockets, and then puts them out again. The video also uses a similar "watching from a screen" technique like from "Dirty Spaceman", except there are multiple screens, as shown in the beginning and end.
** "Kicked Your Monkey" does this very subtly, adding a strobe effect to ''just'' the border, which melds perfectly with the new Eurobeat sound so you don't even notice it's there at first. The random triangle shapes created by the "lines, lines, intersecting" on the walls also flicker with light in time to a quick series of synth notes (that are also heard at the end, with random paint splotches appearing over Gotye and Kimbra in perfect sync with the notes).
** "Time to Rock" adds a blue tint and a smoky effect to the inside of the limousine to fuel the implication that the Double Take girls are currently [[TheStoner high as kites]]. It also adds some rather unflattering stills of the girls to make them look even more high.
* ParrotExposition: Invoked in "More Twilight" during the exchange about earwigs.
--> '''Jacob:''' An earwig. It's like a rotten potato two people flip.
* PissTakeRap: Attempted by Peter in "Peter and Gwen".
* PizzaBoySpecialDelivery: Bruno Mars seems to be "delivering" for Lady Gaga in "Morning Dew".
* PottyEmergency: Porpoise meat apparently doesn't agree with Jacob Black.
* PropRecycling: Invoked. Some videos have an obviously CGI plasma TV with a BLR brand name inserted.
* QueerRomance: Coldplay's singer and a male Yeti form a romance that is queer by every definition of the word.
* RashomonStyle: In "Magic Man", who ''did'' kill that hobbit?
* RealitySubtext: Given TaylorSwift's penchant for {{Take That}}s, starting the chorus with "all y'all haters stop your noise" becomes less random.
** "Asian Baby" has Music/JustinBieber mentioning that he was in Korea, which would have happened for real if 4chan had their way.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: will.i.am even boasts about it.
* RuleOfFunny: The only way to explain the random lyrics that are sung when the video is not currently focused on the singing. For example, in "Black Umbrella", the lines about the Padawan and Tiny Timmy Tokyo both come up when the camera is not on Miley Cyrus' face.
* SampledUp: Invoked for "Magic Man" with Music/TheBeeGees.
* {{Scatting}}: Beyonce, for some reason, is doing this at Obama's inauguration in the middle of her WordSaladLyrics.
* SecretIdentity: As noted above, the man behind BLR is hiding his real name, reportedly "because he doesn't want the levity of the Bad Lip Reading series to impact his more serious work."
* SeinfeldianConversation: UpToEleven in various videos. As most videos are WordSalad, the average conversation flits between various meaningless out-of-context topics. In ''The Walking (and Talking) Dead'' and ''Twilight III'', there are even ''songs'' about pointless topics.
* SequelEscalation: "Yeti" broke new ground by adding whole footage cut from cloth; "Edward and Bella" and "Hunger Games" actually shake off some of the WordSaladLyrics and manage to turn out continuous back-and-forth dialogue. "Paul Ryan's Video Diary" goes one step further by replacing ''the background'', completely changing the context.
** "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD" cranks this UpToEleven, with signs and hands added all over the place, changing the context despite playing up the {{Flanderisation}}. In the Deleted Scenes, Eddard even uses an iPhone.
* ShownTheirWork: Yes, that is a real graph of the inverse cosine in "Black Umbrella (The Right Stuff)".
** The new voices for SnoopDogg. will.i.am, and Gotye are ''disturbingly'' spot on. It should be noted that [[WeirdAlEffect Gary LeVox's ISN'T.]]
*** Their Jay-Z sounds good enough that you'd swear it ''was'' him.
*** Their MileyCyrus voice is pretty darn good too, especially in the talking segments (the diet Snapple part and "And I'm pregnant").
** Why is Wiz Khalifa edited into Taylor Swift's video? It might be because the Pittsburgh Pirates logo on the T-shirt he's wearing has been altered to replace the word "PIRATES" with "TAYLOR." But BLR didn't do that. It was shown that way in Khalifa's original video (The Pirate's face was also altered).
** When BLR added their own hands to footage of Lady Gaga in "Morning Dew", there was a tattoo of a peace sign on the left wrist. Lady Gaga actually has a tattoo like this.
* ShoutOut:
** In "Magic Man", They talk about someone killing a hobbit, then Music/TheBeeGees come across the body and sell the [[Literature/TheLordofTheRings ring on his finger]] for $200
** From the same song, "I ain't see no hobbits in ''Franchise/StarWars''"
** Ludacris is also the [[Literature/HarryPotter magic man at the magic school]].
** Hobbits appear again in "Trick the Bridesmaid" (and Obama is a witness for them)
** From "Black Umbrella (The Right Stuff)": "Oh my gosh, there's never gonna be a better [[Franchise/StarWars Padawan]] than me."
** ''Franchise/StarWars'' seems to come up a lot, since "Dirty Spaceman" has the line "Angel Mouth ate my Jedi Jello". The same song also refers to WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}, Music/TinaTurner, [[Film/TheFly Brundlefly]] and a Film/ReAnimator.
** And now "Morning Dew" has Jay-Z rapping "[[HanShotFirst I'm Han, you're Greedo.]]" With an appropriately photoshopped picture of Jay-Z. And with a later CallBack in a manipulated Lady Gaga clip.
** Gotye joins in the ''Star Wars'' love... except he's "working with the Sith".
** And let's not forget Joe Biden's [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} "PIKACHU!"]]
** From "High School": [[{{Deliverance}} "That's a banjo!"]]
** Star Wars comes up again in "Yeti", with a Wookiee costume used for the Yeti itself. Also, [[{{Coldplay}} Chris Martin]] watches ''Series/{{Lost}}'' all day.
** Yet another Star Wars reference in "The Walking (and Talking) Dead", where the Governor mentions that he always wanted a Wookiee, but he found out they weren't real. (Thanks for nothing, Creator/GeorgeLucas.)
** [[{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen]] asking Bella "[[InterviewWithAVampire you wanna do that interview? Wednesday? Thursday?]]"
*** "Twilight III" adds to this with Bella's dad calling Edward "Lestat" and Jacob "Film/TeenWolf".
** Three times in "[[Series/GameOfThrones Medieval Land Fun-Time World]]"
-->'''Tyrion''': "You a fan of the [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Pikachu]]?"
-->'''Petey''': "How do you feel about people who go '[[{{Franchise/StreetFighter}} Hadouken!]]'?"
-->'''Tyrion''': [singing] Mm, [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] is bad, and his assistant is a mouse. He used the Force to fix his cats...\\\

** The [[Series/SesameStreet Grover]] Mask from "Twilight III".
* SomeOfMyBestFriendsAreX: Rick Santorum: "I know a few Asian guys."
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent
** BLR takes on a RippedFromTheHeadlines approach with spoken-word videos.
** "Beard with Glue" could also count, being devoid of the usual hiphop flavor.
** "High School" starts a new trend by using ''movie footage''.
** "Shadow Pico" takes it even further by posing music video footage ''as'' movie footage into a RealTrailerFakeMovie. Also, most of the dialogue is lip read as some sort of foreign-language sounding gibberish.
** "THE NFL", of course, is the first-ever reading consisting of sports footage.
* SpokenWordInMusic: Every song, save for a select few, features a spoken word section, but "Trick the Bridesmaid" is almost exclusively this (save for the chorus).
* TheStinger: After every video, a short part of the video is played again, except with vastly different and equally nonsensical lyrics.
* TheStoic: Tom Brady, [[NotSoStoic unless he finds Fido or figures out that he's white.]]
* TheStoner: Miley Cyrus, according to "Black Umbrella".
** Same applies to Newt Gingrich in his soundbyte.
** Both halves of Double Take are blatantly high in "Time To Rock".
** Mitt Romney thinks marijuana is great. Call the whippet badger.
** Bob Schieffer from the "2012 Debates Highlights" also uses antidepressants to enhance his highs and is no stranger to the presence of crack.
** President Obama announced at his 2013 inauguration that he loves opiates.
** Jo-Jo Lannister asks Terry if he's got the dope. Yeah, fo shiz.
* StrawmanPolitical: Many of BLR's targets are Republicans.
** Although that's probably due to having an incumbent Democrat candidate in the 2012 election, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot leaving BLR with more people on the Republican side to use as material]].
* StockholmSyndrome: Averted in the extended version of ''La Bibbida Bibba Dum'' from "The Walking (And Talking) Dead", when the Governor mentions that the girl in his basement probably thinks he's a creep.
* SummoningRitual: "Shadow Pico" seems to be about the members of Music/OneDirection gathering to summon Shadow Pico.
* SurrealHumour / WordSaladHumour: Pretty much everything, but especially their soundbites.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: From "Dirty Spaceman":
-->I can tell I'm beginning to like Alejandro / He's brave and dapper and NOT DRUNK!
** That, or she gets hit on by so many drunk guys that finding one who isn't drunk is something special for her.
** Another one. According to Newt Gingrich-
-->Then the dodo disappeared, and I spent the cash. Sh*t happens.
* TastesLikeFriendship: Adrian Peterson accepts a reporter after he learns she has an orange peanut.
* TakeThat: To the production of "Hot Problems," after the song.
-->Oh my God, you guys could totally go buy this song on iTunes, and then listen to it in a parked limousine... That'd be so meta!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgmARwtptoo&feature=share&list=ULSgmARwtptoo Obama point-blank asking why Mitt Romney is such an a**hole.]]
** Bella's dad just says what everyone's already thinking in "Twilight III"
---> "I don't like your face... And you have the record for frowning."
*** Followed by Jacob telling Edward "Suntan, that's what you need!"
---> '''Bella''': "He's right."
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: In "Dirty Spaceman":
--> And I'm feeling extra angry...
* ThatPoorCat: In ''Twilight III'' Jacob throws something out of anger and accidentally hits his cat.
-->I bonked my kitteh!
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Invoked in "Gang Fight!": "You're no one and it's unlikely you'll have this ... And I doubt that you'll have this ... Now you go away, na na na!"
** In "Time to Rock," Double Take "don't wanna disco with your a**"
** Mitt Romney gives this to his "son" in one of his debates, saying he had to be like ComicBook/JudgeDredd to fix him up.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Justin Bieber, at least at the beginning of "Asian Baby."
--> "Vermont, is heaven, for Bieber."
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: From "Everybody Poops":
--> I be regular, bitches.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Rebecca Black is apparently friends with some "pleasant Nazis".
* ToiletHumour: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQTW7Pd1vqc Everybody Poops]].
** And a bit of it in Russian Unicorn. "The guy behind you just soiled his underwear...uh...umm...maybe YOU did it!"
** Newt Gingrich went poo-poo in the egg salad.
** In "Hunger Games":
-->'''Gale''': ''[sniffs]'' What did you ''do''? It ''reeks''. It's like a hot foot forest.\\
'''Katniss''': [[{{Squick}} Oh, well, I got the squirts... y'know, when you make fudge puddles...]]\\
'''Gale''': My bad. Didn't need the visual.\\
'''Katniss''': It's horrific.\\
'''Gale''': [[BrainBleach Okay, can we forget it?]]
** Rick Santorum thinks diarrhea is okay and once let it shoot out for half a block.
** The word "poo" shows up at least once in almost every video. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that it's a ''very'' simple word that's easy to lip read, not to mention its InherentlyFunnyWord status.
** [[Series/GameOfThrones "MEDIEVAL LAND FUN-TIME WORLD"]] turns this into an OverlyLongGag. Thanks, [[{{Gasshole}} Grand Maester Pycelle.]]
*** Also, someone throws poo at Jo-Jo. And he may have a stink booty.
** The lyrics of "Yeti" describe the titular creature as an "exotic covered-in-poo man".
* TooKinkyToTorture: [[Music/TheBeeGees Barry Gibb.]] [[spoiler:"Spank my wood...till I bleed... Or so that I scream...[[SafeWord 'Souffle!']]"]]
* TropeyComeHome: Invoked.
-->'''Tom Brady''': Hey, I found [[CanineCompanion Fido]]! I found Fido! I found Fido, you guys!
* TheUnintelligible:
** In "Twilight III", Jasper is this.
** In "More The Walking Dead", Lizzis and Mika Samuels, two little girls below 10 at best, say complete gibberish, and it's implied they're still learning to speak.
* UnusualEuphemism:
** In "Hot Jumping Beans", it's pretty clear that the "hot jumping beans" are a metaphor for... something very intimate.
** From "Dirty Spaceman", we get "Can you leave your wrinkled willie glue inside my ocean, please?"
** And of course: "Oh, the night is young / Now baby we could shoot a Russian unicorn"
** A drunk Cinna asks Katniss to "Do something 'fruity'"
** Music/LadyGaga has "morning dew" that you simply can't get.
** Obama wants to "creep" and "make friction" in a large office after lunch.
** "High School" can be full of this if you keep your mind in the gutter.
---> "Yeah, well you watched Jose do the [[ADateWithRosiePalms Chinese finger dance]] on [[ICallHimMisterHappy Sloan Dyson's grimy pretzel.]]"
** According to Joe Biden, Paul Ryan wants you to "frost his lemonhead."
** Beyonce is very fond of using these in "LA FWAY".
--->But your little sweet pig\\
I stroked your swine\\
[[ICallHimMisterHappy His name was Rusty]]\\
Yeahhhhh\\
Dllll - Rusty
** Joe Biden says that popping candy from loose women can get tiring, like jumping in Cindy's Fun Barrel.
* TheVillainSucksSong: "Beard With Glue."
* VocalDissonance: It says a lot that this is averted except (arguably) in two cases - [[RascalFlatts Gary LeVox]] (voiced similar to LarryTheCableGuy even though his real voice is more like the one used for Music/JustinBieber here) and Michele Bachmann (whom you'd probably ''expect'' to sound like a guy anyways).
** Half the characters in "Medieval Land Fun-Time World" have *very* different voices, while the other half are more faithful. Terry speaks in street parlance, Susie has a *very* husky voice, whereas Petey and Bobby have ridiculously high-pitched voices.
* VoiceOfDramatic: will.i.am in one instance of "Dirty Spaceman."
-->"Seed money. For the reanimator."
* VoiceOfTheLegion: The Devil, [[spoiler: aka Prim]] from ''Hunger Games''
** Trent Cole from "More NFL": [[VaguenessIsComing "The ghost is near."]]
* VomitDiscretionShot: Peter Parker throws up over the side of a building right in front of Gwen Stacy, after telling her that touching her wooden leg makes him sick.
* [[VomitIndiscretionShot Vomit Indiscretion Lyric]]: NickiMinaj throws up perfect shellfish into her towel.
* AWildRapperAppears: Notably ''inverted'' in "Magic Man".
** Snoop Dogg's appearance in "Black Umbrella" was intended to parody this.
* WordSaladLyrics: A typical example from the "Gang Fight" rap: "I'm grabbing a routine vaccination with chicken and sweet carp on the side."
** In fact, the BLR "universe" is almost entirely word salad.
* YiddishAsASecondLanguage: From "Black Umbrella": "Meshuggenah Vinnie had a hoop-de."
* YouAreFat: In "Yeti", directed towards the Yeti.
--> "You're a pig. / You pig. / Stop eating, yeah. / Your body's getting too big. / You pig. / You're a Bigfoot, yeah, but no more chicken and cow."
* YourMom: Mitt Romney is really into this, saying that "Yo' Momma's pudgy" and that she can eat him.
** It's even better when Mitt Romney [[HypocriticalHumor doesn't want to his son to be saying anything bad about his momma]], even if he is a party rapper.
