[[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 Creator/{{Deepercutt}}.

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

On April 23, 2018, he uploaded the inaugural episode of a new comedic review series called [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHtfUcxdUNSOl7IdWKBoUaw Luke At This]].

!!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.'')
* AnachronismStew: PlayedForLaughs in "[[Film/{{Hugo}} Hugh Geaux]]" when Hugo and Isabelle enter the bookstore to find Monsieur Labisse in the middle of playing ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossingNewLeaf'' on his UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS in the middle of the 1930s.
* AntiClimax: In ''Will Wonk and the Chalk Factory'', Charlie and the other children are all waiting in front of the factory, when Will Wonk walks up to them, but then immediately goes back into his factory and slams the door.
* ArcNumber: 34 in ''[[TheLordOfTheRings Lord Of Da Things]]''.
--> '''Galf''': Year 3434 of the 34th age, here follows the 34th encounter of Isildor. High kingdom the 34th Gondor, and the 34th finding of the 34th Ring of Power.
* 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.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: Taken from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiZN8MNWtOo Wow! I'm Hungry!]]:
-->'''"They'll be used to make cereal or beer. Or beereal."'''
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The second half of "Jore Jarrison on Drinks" mostly consists of [[Music/TheBeatles George Harrison]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech ranting about]] WebAnimation/YoutubePoop.
* ButtMonkey: The poor, poor workers, as seen in the "Wow! It's Made!" series. A very explicit purpose is made to horrifically mangle them, in increasingly absurd methods.

* 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''.

** "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.

* 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.

* RussianReversal: In ''The Lol King'', Timon tells Simba that the world turns its back on you, but in Soviet Russia, you turn your back on the world.
* 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.
* ShoutOut: He makes frequent reference to Creator/{{Cs188}}, particularly by inserting references to CS' {{Running Gag}}s of "[=HoH SiS=]" and "joj".
* TakeThat: In ''The Lol King'', Simba starts reading ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', but Mufasa pushes him out of the way, shouting "No, son!"
* {{Troll}}: In ''Will Wonk and the Chalk Factory'', Grandpa Joj gives Charlie an empty package as a birthday present. He then shows him that he has a bar of chalk hidden under his pillow, but doesn't let him open it.
