->[[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland, USA.]] Who doesn't love this place? It's a home away from home, for kids of all ages. A passport to worlds unknown. A tentpole of the American zeitgeist. A place I'd like to point towards when they bury my carcass. A joyous, celebratory land of--[[MoodWhiplash FOUR TWENTY-NINE FOR AN ORANGE JUICE?]] YOU BUNCH OF [[CurseCutShort FUC--]]
-->--[[EstablishingSeriesMoment The opening of the first episode]]

Some Jerk With A Camera is an [[VideoReviewShow internet reviewer]] of Ride/DisneyThemeParks (and occasionally Universal) and their assorted paraphernalia. His show blends park history lessons, articulate opinions, and wacky, frenetic, manic-style humor. Most bizarrely, a great deal of the live footage is "on location", meaning that he's frequently cussing it up within the confines of The Most Magical Place on Earth.

His show can be seen [[http://channelawesome.com/category/videos/producers/some-jerk-with-a-camera/ here]] on [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Channel Awesome]], [[http://geekvision.tv/channels/somejerk/ here]] on {{Geekvision}}, or [[http://thatfellowinthecoat.com/somejerkcamera.php here]] on WebVideo/MrCoatAndFriends.
----
!!This series provides examples of:

* AbortedArc: Due to undisclosed circumstances, Jerk's review of The Little Mermaid Ride, promised after the Star Tours II video, was put on hold in favor of an EPCOT Retrospective. To bridge the two, Jerk starts out his retrospective about to talk about The Little Mermaid Ride, but has an encounter with [[{{Series/Dateline}} Chris Hansen]] that forces him to go on the run and end up in Florida.
* AccentuateTheNegative: Sometimes, such as with ''Disney/TheCountryBears'' and ''It's A Small World Holiday'', but just as often, Jerk is positive about the things he's reviewing.
-->'''Jerk''': Do you know why I review Disneyland? ...It's because I *love* Disneyland! I didn't want to be a hater! I wanted to show the Reviewaverse that you can be entertaining without resorting to constant negative whiny cynicism!
* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: Jerk admits [[spoiler: his old Small World parody song]] is guilty of this.
* AllDeathsFinal: One of his issues with ''Shrek 4-D'' is that it violates this rule of the ''{{Franchise/Shrek}}'' franchise. By having Lord Farquaad be the only character to come back to life, in a series where ghosts exist nowhere else, it cheapens the impact of his death. He illustrates how much this would mess with the canon of other films by joking about a ghostly [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]] ([[PunnyName Ghoston]]!) show up and harass Belle and The Prince at their wedding.
* AllJustADream: The ''Star Tours'' review was The Wire's dream within Jerk's dream within Spazz's dream within [[RockosModernLife Heffer]]'s dream within [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Lisa]]'s dream within North's dream within Jerk's dream within [[Film/BackToTheFuture Marty McFly]]'s dream within Music/MichaelJackson's mind.
* AlterEgoActing: The Jerk is at least somewhat fictional, but he has been referred to as "Tony Goldmark", and takes credit for pre-Jerk works of Tony's.
* ArcWords: KETCHUP.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: And naturally, only the Jaywalking one has anyone acting outraged.
-->'''Jerk''': "No, look, just because your life is a lie doesn't mean you can't be happy. Just look at me! My whole life is a lie and I'm happy as a clam! I've never told anyone this but I am Nicole Simpson's real killer. Yeah. And I shot [[Music/TupacShakur Tupac]]. And [[Music/TheNotoriousBIG Biggie]]. And [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy JFK]]. And [[{{Series/Dallas}} JR Ewing]]. I escaped from Gitmo twice and I still have the tag to prove it. I- I I- *pause* I am UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. And the Zodiac Killer. And [[Film/TheUsualSuspects Keyser Sze]]. And the undercover cop in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. Uh, I started the goddamn Chicago fire. I canceled ''{{Series/Firefly}}''! I'll confess to whatever you want just please for the love of god don't bring [[Series/FamilyMatters Urkel]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext back from the dead]]."
-->'''[[WebVideo/StuffYouLike Sursum Ursa]]''': ...YOU? CANCELED? ''FIREFLY''?!? ...YOUMONSTER!!!
* AuthorAppeal: Jerk's a huge Music/WeirdAlYankovic fan, and has put at least one Weird Al reference in all of his episodes, including the time when he put Weird Al HIMSELF in his videos.
* BigNo: Jerk's reaction to It's A Small World Holiday.
* BlackComedy:
** Perhaps his darkest joke is in "Thirty Years of Epcot (Part 1)", where he notes that there are no rides in the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Germany, Italy, or Japan pavilions]].
-->'''Jerk''': As a Jewish controller of the media, I hereby demand a Germany ride! (''[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Cut to him boarding a train]].'')
** Earlier in Part 1 he compares the Disney Corporation post-Walt's death as a chicken with its head cut off... complete with footage of a just-beheaded chicken leaping around.
** In his teaser for his ''Captain EO'' review, he mentions the review will premiere on Sept 12 2011. 25 years after the ride opened. "There aren't [[TheWarOnTerror any other big anniversaries around that date]], are there?"
** "ABC Goes To Disney World" parodies {{Laugh Track}}s by portraying them as mindless audiences who laugh at anything... even [[Disney/TheLionKing Simba finding Mufasa dead]].
* BlackComedyRape:
** ...by ''It's A Small World'', to the shock and confusion of several other reviewers.
** In the "Star Tours" video, Wire asks the Jerk to show her on an Ewok doll where the ride touched him. He throws it on the ground and yells [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization "I was probably asking for it!"]]
** Kill Bozby's appearance in the "Shrek 4D" review makes use of this due to the allegations against Bill Cosby.
* BrokenRecord: In his "ABC Goes To [=DisneyLAND=] episode":
-->"The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror..."
* TheCameo: [[RBGProductions Spazzmaster]], [[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern The Wire]], and [[WhatWeHadToWatch Il Niege]] all make regular appearances. Other cameos have included [[TheBunnyPerspective Phil Buni]], [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]], WebVideo/DiamandaHagan, [[ShamefulSequels MikeJ]], Creator/CountJackula, TheRosenHacker, [[WebVideo/AnimatedAnalysis Stephan and Nootrac]], MikeyInsanity, and [[spoiler: not one, but TWO separate appearances by Music/WeirdAlYankovic!]]
* TheCastShowOff: The "What's This?" musical number.
* CloudCuckooLander
* [[invoked]]CriticalResearchFailure: As Jerk reviews the ABC sitcoms that went to Disney World, he quickly finds they make some ''blatant'' errors about the park.
** The ''Full House'' episode has the family meet Donald and Goofy right outside of their hotel when the costumed characters never go that far from the park.
** In ''Step by Step'', Flash attempts to break the record for fastest time riding every Disney World ride, with his neighbor Mark helping him from the park's control room. While riding the Astro Orbiter, he's advised to not go to Alien Encounter and instead go to the Jungle Cruise because the parade is in progress. Since going to Alien Encounter from Astro Orbiter would ''not'' pass through the parade (since it doesn't go through Tomorrowland) but passing through Fantasyland to the Jungle Cruise ''would'', Jerk concludes Mark must be trying to sabotage him.
*** Later on, the Indiana Jones Epic Spectacular show fills up and Flash is let in if he plays the part of Indy. This ''infuriates'' Jerk, as the show is the most dangerous stunt show in the park and would never let a random novice play such a central role.
*** Earlier in the episode, J.T. and Rich blow all their money on trying to impress girls by treating them to dinner at a supposed Disney World restaurant called Pinetta's. However, Jerk finds not only is there no place at Disney World called Pinetta's, the only dining place he can find with that name ''in the world'' is in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
-->'''Jerk''': Was it this hard to find an expensive restaurant in ''Disney World?!'' The freaking churros have installment plans!
** The ''Sabrina'' episode has her and her supporting cast travel from Animal Kingdom to their hotel room four times in one episode, even though the hotel they're at (the Coronade Springs Resort) is 3 miles away from the park. ''Roseanne'' commits a similar error, as the family somehow makes it from their hotel room to Main Street USA in only 14 minutes.
** During his coverage of ''Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow'', a clip plays where George's mom claims she rode the Matterhorn ride while pregnant with him. As the safety announcement played every 5 minutes during the line to the ride shows, pregnant women are '''heavily''' discouraged from riding the Matterhorn.
* {{Crossover}}: The review of the original ''Star Tours'', with [[RBGProductions Spazzmaster]] and [[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern The Wire]].
* CultureChopSuey: During his ''Series/FamilyMatters'' Disney World review, he wonders why Winnie-the-Pooh is dressed as a [[CanadaEh Mountie]] in the ''Italian'' Pavilion of Epcot, which then leads him to wonder why a ''British'' character is even dressing like a Canadian in the first place.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: One of his videos is entitled ''Top 11 Florida Attractions Not In California''.
* DeusExMachina: After accidentally erasing his own birth at the very end of his "It's a Small World" review, Jerk is saved by a dimensional figure called The All-Being, who transports him to an alternate universe that's exactly the same as his old own.
* DisneyAcidSequence: Several, including the end of his Star Tours review, and the beginning of part 3 of his It's A Small World review.
* DVDCommentary: Or rather, ''online'' commentaries.
** The first commentary was on his "Season One Outtakes" video, and is a random assortment of various songs and other things. It's completely insane.
** The second commentary was on his Halloween Special and is more of a GagDub than the previous one.
** The third commentary was on his AprilFoolsDay Walt Disney Family Museum video and is virtually unedited. The only additions are a short introduction by Jerk and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfEVTVRz-W8 a clip of Mexican comedian Jos Natera in a Devil costume]].
** The fourth commentary was his first ''actual'' commentary, on his 3 part EPCOT series.
* EskimosArentReal:
** He doesn't accept UsefulNotes/{{France}} as a real country.
** His feet think Creator/QuentinTarantino is just a myth he made up to scare them out of seceding from his body.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: His impersonation has Michael Eisner petting his [[Disney/TheAristocats kitty]] and loving her along with asking for a [[AdventuresOfTheGummiBears cartoon made of his kid's favorite candy]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In part one of his Epcot retrospective, they state that Disney wouldn't make their Africa pavilion if it meant being associated with South Africa.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Whenever there's a clip of a monkey, Some Jerk can't help but cheerfully say "Ha ha. Monkey!"
* EvilPlan: The creation of Disney's California Adventure is portrayed like this, with Michael Eisner as a ''Franchise/JamesBond'' villian, complete with an eyepatch, a German accent, fedora and a (plush toy) RightHandCat.
-->'''Michael Eisner''': Ve vant zhe tourists to schtay in ze park. Vhy do they leave ze park?
--> '''Unnamed Disney Employee''': Uh, well, uh, Mr. Eisner sir, according to the market research we've done, people leave so they can explore the rest of UsefulNotes/{{California}}!
-->'''Michael Eisner''': Then ve vill bring the rest of California, *throws cat away* HEEEEEEEERE! (''Hellfire'' from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' plays)
* {{Expy}}:
** [[Creator/BillCosby Kill Bozby]] is a particularly deranged one.
** His ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' review acknowledges that [[{{WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty}} Rick Sanchez]] is one of [[{{Franchise/BackToTheFuture}} Doc Brown]].
* ForcedMeme: Jerk will take any excuse to whip out "[[ChristopherWalken That day...]] [[TheCountryBears is TONIGHT!]]"
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Tony's parody songwriting past and skills are referenced in the Florida, Halloween, and Small World Part One episodes, leading up to [[spoiler: the Small World finale.]]
* FreezeFrameBonus: Frequently displays funny text for less than a second.
* GagDub: He did one for his own Halloween special.
* GoldenSnitch: Parodied with the last question of "Is It Still There" (California Adventure edition) being worth 100 points to the 10 and 20 of the first two.
* GuiltyPleasures: Averted. He stands by his love for Maelstrom, "no matter how much my friends hate it."
* HeroicBSOD: After finding out that the animal characters in the Disney parks are actually people in suits in "ABC Goes to Disneyland", Jerk goes through this.
* HookersAndBlow: Honey in ''TheCountryBears'' is a [[DrunkOnMilk G-rated replacement.]]
* ImNotAHeroIm: "I'm not a hero, I'm just a guy who likes to say he's not a hero."
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Wealthy Businessman's reaction to all of Walt Disney's ideas.
* {{Jerkass}}: Come on, if you watch a guy named Some Jerk With A Camera then don't expect him to be kind.
* JewishComplaining:
** In the "Small World" video, the Jerk's uncle Paul is apparently a seasoned hater and gives the Jerk some tips.
** Referenced in the EPCOT video: "If you kvetch long enough, things will happen to you!"
* JumpScare:
** "Maybe they should have done [the bears outside Rushin' River Outfitters] in CGI. Even that would have been better than..." (the poster from ''Film/YogiBear'' suddenly flashes on screen with suspenseful music) "...'''GAAAAAAH NO IT WOULDN'T NO IT WOULDN'T NO IT WOULDN'T GET IT OFF THE SCREEN'''!!!"
** The abrupt end to the intermission in his EPCOT video.
* LargeHam:
** The All-Being.
** Jerk himself often is this.
* LimitedWardrobe: Always wears the same black shirt, probably to maintain continuity with his opener and closer.
* MidReviewSketchShow: And HOW. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the Halloween special.
-->'''Jerk:''' Wow, this might actually be a one-part episode! If I can keep my hilarious digressions to a minimum. Speaking of which, I read the most fascinating article on Lithuania today...
* NWordPrivileges: The Jerk (who is Jewish) seems to quite enjoy abusing his own.
** Makes a Holocaust joke in his EPCOT video. Interestingly, he's careful to mention that he is Jewish first.
** His very first video ''The Country Bears'' includes one, when claiming Tennessee's trait of being loudly obnoxious makes him a "[[Film/InglouriousBasterds Bear Jew]]".
** In "ABC Goes To Disney World", he notes the skyway with Eisner and Mickey has stopped moving, and demands they get it moving again before "Mickey finds out how tasty Jews are". He then hears some munching, and [[Literature/TheDiaryOfAYoungGirl asks who'd like to let him hide in their attic]].
** Apparently, there are alternate dimensions with world peace but Jews aren't allowed there. Looks like Creator/MelGibson was right.
** Lampshaded in his crossover with ''WebVideo/AnimatedAnalysis''.
-->'''Jerk''': You're just jealous because I'm allowed to make Holocaust jokes!
-->'''Stephan''': That doesn't matter!
-->'''Jerk''': Hey everyone! Stephan just said the Holocaust doesn't matter!
* OurSloganIsTerrible: Star Tours II's slogan for Mos Eisley Cantina. Also, Jerk's own slogans for Detroit, {{Geekvision}}, IMDB, and [[Series/ToCatchAPredator Chris Hansen's]] Decoy Houses.
* OverlyLongGag: In "ABC Goes To Disneyland", his take on George Lopez's promotion of the new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which eventually forces him into a static loop. Jerk enters Rod Serling-style to comment on this, only to get trapped in the same loop. This happens repeatedly.
-->'''Serling!Jerk #3''': A former joke, getting older and less interesting by the second, not worth the time it took me to do this dumb green-screen effect...
* PedoHunt: A RunningGag. The Jerk is repeatedly harassed by [[Series/ToCatchAPredator Chris Hansen]], who often [[MistakenForPedophile misconstrues what he says.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: At the very end of his ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'' vlog-review, after hearing the director compare people visiting Disneyland to lemmings jumping off a cliff.
-->'''Jerk''': Fuck you!
** Making it even more awesome, he declared his intentions on doing a full review of it afterwards.
* ProductPlacement: Frequently parodied, including his show's very own ads:
-->'''Jerk''': One of these following products causes the same cancer that killed Walt! See if you can guess which one! (''Cue mid-show commercial'')
* RightHandCat: Michael Eisner, as portrayed by Jerk, has one as a Bond villain parody, named [[Creator/JeffreyKatzenberg Jeffrey Kittykatzenberg]]. During the DCA review he accidentally tosses it into his fireplace, and in the ''Full House'' review he's forced to eat it.
* RunningGag:
** Some Jerk's one-off characters have a tendency to suffer cardiac arrest and die once their skits end. Lampshaded in Jerk's "Season 2 Outtakes OUTTAKES!"
-->'''Scott Baio''': Oh for God's sake, another heart attack? You know you've done this joke to death! (''collapses'') Literally.
** Claiming that one of his advertisers did something terrible. "See if you can guess which one!"
** Portraying Mike Eisner as evil, often with an EyepatchOfPower and RightHandCat.
** {{Website/IMDB}}: [[RidiculousProcrastinator What you do instead of things!]]
** Previously, on ''acid'' / ''The Jerk Jerkman Show'' / ''Some Camera with a Jerk'' / etc.
** Recent episodes have the Jerk quoting and poking fun at Buzz Lightyear's lines from a Disneyland California Adventure ad that had been played for a while on Blip at the time.
* SelfDeprecation: Frequent, but also referenced at Disney's stake:
-->'''Jerk''': Even Disney hates this ride so much they dissed it in one of their biggest movies ever!
-->'''Scar''': NO! NO! Anything but that!
-->'''Jerk''': AWW SNAP! Disney disses Disney! Take that... Yourselves. Uptop!
* ShaggyDogStory: His video on the Walt Disney Family Museum. During his first visit, his camera's battery goes out, forcing him to call off filming that day. The next day the museum is closed, and the day after that he has to return to LA. He's since had to put off covering the museum in the near future.
* ShapedLikeItself: Tony calls DCA "the Disney's California Adventure of theme parks".
* ShoutOut:
** Frequent recipients include Music/WeirdAlYankovic, Creator/MontyPython, ''Series/MrShow'', and ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''.
** The opening to Part 1 of his ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' makes fun of the opening to ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' by refilming the opening to his previous episode exactly, expect for Luke Ski's puppet having a cardboard cutout of the head of Elisabeth Shue pasted on, referencing the recast of Jennifer in-between the movies.
** In Part 3 of the ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' TerribleIntervieweesMontage, one of the Doc Brown impersonators is [[{{WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty}} Rick Sanchez]].
* ShownTheirWork: Especially in his DCA and EPCOT videos.
* SitcomArchNemesis: As of the EPCOT video, [[Series/ToCatchAPredator Chris Hansen]].
* StoryArc: His Halloween episode leads right into his Christmas special, which leads right into his ''Star Tours II'' review.
* TakeThat:
** To Chris Hansen who he calls, among other things, "sadistic and crazy."
** To Mike Eisner, who he plays as a Bond Villain.
** To AynRand in his commentary video for "Thirty Years of EPCOT." In it, he calls her "the most despicable person who never killed anyone." He also describes a libertarian world as one in which poor people are forced to eat each other in his video for the new Star Tours.
** He also snuck in a dig at Gamergate in his ''Back To The Future: The Ride'' review (which is represented as an actual gate where people who insult women on the internet are chained), and in his ''Shrek 4-D'' review, he portrays both Con Guy and Kill Bosby as completely misunderstanding women (they don't understand why women complain about being kidnapped). While he doesn't come out against sexism as overtly as, say, [[{{WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall}} Linkara]], his stance on it is pretty clear.
** His ''The Simpsons Ride'' review slams Universal's lack of identity (most of the licensed properties in its parks are ones it doesn't actually own, and many of the ones it does own are totally unfamiliar to today's kids), ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' and its "abuse is romantic" message, as well as his irritation at the [[EnsembleDarkhorse Minions]] completely taking over the [[Film/DespicableMe franchise they emerged from]].
** His ''Top 11 Florida Attractions Not In California'' video includes a TakeThat to Micechat, a Disney-themed online forum which removed his videos due to profanity.
** His tourism [[OurSloganIsTerrible slogan]] for {{UsefulNotes/Detroit}}: ''[[WretchedHive It's a shithole full of people who steal!]]'' Punctuated by a gunshot.
* ThoseTwoGuys: MikeyInsanity and TheRosenHacker occasionally fit the bill.
--> '''Rosen''': Did you hear something?
--> '''Mikey''': Who cares? I'm on vacation!
* TopTenList: He has several Top Eleven lists, each with a parody of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's appropriate catchphrase.
** Florida attractions not in California (with bonus updated list several years later when it was posted on Channel Awesome)
** Comic Book Jerk's list of nitpicks about The Simpsons Ride
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Inverted during Jerk's review of ''Full House's'' Disney World episode; he's surprised at how amazed D.J., Stephanie, Michelle, and Kimmy are at the sight of Main Street, pointing out that it's no different from Disneyland's. This leads him to believe the Tanners have ''never gone to Disneyland'', which he finds baffling since they 1.) live in California, and 2.) are clearly wealthy enough to afford at least one trip to the park. He ends up calling Child Services to file a report on (fictional) child abuse on their behalf, only to be put on hold.
* WildMassGuessing: [[invoked]] In the new (Channel Awesome) opening, he talks about how ''Film/CaptainEO'' was revamped into a theater for new Disney movies. He then starts to draw comparisons between ''Captain EO'' and ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', realizing that Captain EO is Starlord's father.
* YouAreFat: Some Jerk's rant against test seats that don't allow for fat people. It has quite a few fat jokes.
--> '''SJWAC''': It's a cutting edge ride, that raises the bar higher than a fat guy trying to squeeze into the seat- okay, who wrote that?
--> '''[[TheBunnyPerspective Phil Bunni]]''': ''(laughs)''
--> '''SJWAC''': Not cool! You know, I'm too fat to go on the Dragon Challenge coaster, and I'm almost too fat for Forbidden Journey. I just barely made it. I didn't think I'd be able to at first, I had a panic attack. I think [[BlackComedyCannibalism I ate a couple of people]], but don't worry, I forgive myself. You know it's kind of disgusting how many rides at Universal have those kinds of test seats. And it's not just a fat thing, huge muscular dudes can't ride either, probably. Don't humongoloids and fat sacks of crap deserve their thrills too? It's not like they're ''({{beat}})'' short. Like you. And further more,...
--> 3 hours later ''(cut to Phil banging his head against his desk)''
--> '''SJWAC''': I mean [[Franchise/HarryPotter Hagrid]] couldn't ride this, but Voldemort could no problem. Is that the kind of wizarding world you want to live in? I'm taking a stand for this-''("Fat" by Weird Al starts)'' Stop this music, this is serious! ''(takes a bit of his churro and [[ItMakesSenseInContext hamfist]])''
