Neil Cicierega (pronounced, roughly, ''si-ser-EE-ga'') is the creator of ''WebVideo/PotterPuppetPals'' and the {{WebAnimation/Animutation}} genre of Flash videos. He is also the one-man (with other members joining in live performances) band Music/LemonDemon. In 2014, he gained some media buzz for two albums of mashups entitled ''Mouth Sounds'' and ''Mouth Silence'', comprised of many disoriented and epic mashups of popular songs, mostly "All Star" by Smash Mouth.

His website can be found [[http://www.neilcic.com here]]. He also has a Website/YouTube channel [[http://www.youtube.com/user/NeilCicierega here]], where he posts assorted comedy videos and Music/LemonDemon/''WebVideo/PotterPuppetPals''-related material.

!!Neil Cicierega provides examples of:
* ArcWords/{{Leitmotif}}: [[Music/SmashMouth "All-Star"]], [[Music/{{Santana}} "Smooth"]], the ''Series/FullHouse'' theme...at this point, almost no song is sacred from being used in a lot of his mashups.
* BrickJoke: Track 6 on Mouth Sounds, "Full Mouth", is a mashup between [[Music/SmashMouth All Star]] and the FullHouse theme. Once you think it's over, the next track "Alanis" starts up with the vocals from AlanisMorissette's "You Oughta Know"...only for the Full House music to kick back in. THEN, once you've completely finished with that album and are 45 minutes into Mouth Silence, "Wndrwll" starts out as a chopped up remix of {{Music/Oasis}}' "Wonderwall", and then 2 minutes into it, when you least expect it, the Full House music comes back one more time.
* ChooseYourOwnAdventure: "Haircut"
* DarkerAndEdgier: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OscehbY9A0k Bleed with Me Harry]]
* DistinctDoubleAlbum: ''Mouth Silence'' and ''Mouth Sounds'', his mashup albums.

** The trend continues with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r-R070qHYw Guide to the Races of Star Wars]]
** And seemingly concludes with [[https://youtu.be/HHoJSgq6mqc Guide to the Lord of the Rings]]
* LimitedAnimation: The first three minutes of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygI-2F8ApUM BRODYQUEST]], before Adrien Brody becomes a rock star and then becomes the universe (possibly).
* LimitedLyricsSong: Sometimes to the point of OverlyLongGag levels. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XFLcWIgrfw "Don't need no credit card to ride this train..."]]
* MindScrew: Goes without saying.
* PrecisionFStrike: Done a lot lately. See "Knock Knock Knock", "Computer Fighters", "It's the World Wide Web"...
