Tatsudoshi and Corn, a normal day in the life of Multipurpose Spam.
Tatsudoshi was a YouTube channel focused on Let's Play videos. The main guy was called Tatsudoshi (his real name is Kdin Jenzen). He, DocSigma, and Yuuri all lived together in Austin, Texas (Corn N' Bourbon opted to not join them). The first LP Tatsu has ever done was of Marchen Adventure Cotton, a Japanese side-scrolling shoot-em-up, and since then, he has branched out to do games from different systems, like Goof Troop, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Left 4 Dead (the 360 version). The earlier LPs used to be low-quality, but they later switched to HD. However, the LPs are called Spam Plays after the name of their group, Multipurpose Spam. Tatsu sometimes co-oped with another YouTube user named The Khold One. Notable co-ops included Tetris & Dr. Mario, Mega Man Soccer, DocSigma's First Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Filler, Super Mario World, and Super Khold World, which Khold created and Tatsu raged on.In 2013, Jenzen joined Rooster Teeth's Achievement Hunter as a full-time video editor. He has created a video series for them about upcoming video games called Coming Soon, which he hosts. Unfortunately, around that time and later in 2014, many changes to YouTube and the demands of his former partner network has proved to be so much trouble for him (as explained on the Trivia page) that he eventually had to end Multipurpose Spam.
Tropes associated with Tatsudoshi and Multipurpose Spam:
Tatsu: "BILL! FRANCIS! STOP JERKING EACH OTHER OFF AND HELP ME!"
Angrish: Tatsudoshi lapsed into this during Tetris & Dr. Mario vs Khold part 2 when Khold accidentally puts him on level 9. He also did this during the start of the Super Khold World playthrough when Khold blazed through the first couple levels using tricks and exploits which Tatsu wasn't very pleased about.
This may count as an example of Fridge Brilliance, because in the Japanese Calendar, 2012 is ...you guessed it, the Year of the Dragon, so which means 2012 is the year of Tatsudoshi.
Bowdlerize: During his early videos, Tatsu had a tendency to say "frick" instead of "fuck". Now that he's more established as an LP'er, he'll curse like a sailor and not give two thoughts about it.
Brick Joke: A minor one in the New Super Mario Bros. Wii let's play, on the first level Tatsu makes comments about Wanda Sykes' recent (at the tie) campaign against the use of the word Gay to mean something sucks. It pops up again in the last level with Tatsu impersonating Bowser giving the same lecture.
Brilliant, but Lazy: Corn is generally believed to be an idiot though he has shown skill being the one sent to San Jose to gain a job.
Not to mention that when it comes to his favorite game Streets of Rage 2, he's absolutely masterful.
Catchphrase : "AIDS FOOT!" Became one during the Condemned LP.
"Brought to you by Half Time!" Also became one during the Heavy Rain LP apparently only said during "fag" moments.
Averted in that, unless Tonya (the Princess) is lying through her teeth, she's loving every minute of it.
Incredibly Lame Pun: During the Mirror's Edge Spam Play, Corn makes a quip that one of the characters looks like The Joker mixed with Colonel Sanders and Khold's reply is "If it is, that chicken tastes a little funny."
One during the Mirror's Edge LP was so bad that it caused Tatsu to take away one off Khold's racist joke limit.
Insane Troll Logic During a guest appearance on Crudecomms' (now the Basterd Brothers) playthrough of Fallout 3, he repeatedly demanded that KZX do things that are in impossible in the game (Ex: "Eat the robot! Equip eat and use on robot!"), which he justified by saying that KZX wasn't playing the game the right way.
Karma Houdini: You might say that the AI from both Left 4 Deads are this. When Tatsu was getting swarmed by a horde, Bill and Francis stood at the stairs mindlessly killing zombies, made many stupid decisions throughout both games leading Tatsu to bad-mouth them, and during the Left 4 Dead 2 Parish finale, Coach & Rochelle abandon Tatsu when he gets incapped to make it to safety. Tatsu and Corn both said at different points that they left him because they heard what he said, even though the yelling at them was totally justified.
Laser-Guided Karma: At the end of the first Left 4 Dead video, Sedisp and Officer Bomb were fighting a horde and Corn was getting choked by a Smoker and covered in bile, Tatsu decides to run to the end of the stage. The first video cuts off with a shot of the tank. The second video opens up with Tatsu getting smacked by the Tank forcing a retreat back to the others. Officer Bomb says "OH MY GOD! WHAT DID YOU BRING UPON US!"
Sharing a Body: Corn and Tatsu co-Oped Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy this way. Painful to watch, if not hilarious.
Small Reference Pools: Subverted with how many references there are in a single video nonetheless. Where one person can watch and laugh at some jokes, another person can watch and laugh at a different set of jokes entirely.
Take a Third Option: The group was unable to LP Borderlands due to the fact that the game has no local multiplayer and thus required them to have three XBoxes in order to play it cooperatively. Rather than can the project entirely, they decide to play Borderlands 2, which does have local multiplayer (though they eventually managed to do an LP of the first game).
