In a sense, it's the logical inversion of
Epic Meal Time
has outlandish foods being prepared with relatively ordinary preparation methods,
has relatively ordinary foods being prepared with the most batshit insane methods imaginable.
This channel provides examples of: Affectionate Parody: of . Epic Meal Time All Just a Dream: to the relief of the chef, most of the Pain Inflicting Porridge episode was this. April Fools' Day: The name of the episode, Tenacious Tacos, is enough to arouse suspicion. Awesome, but Impractical: Most of the preparation methods look utterly cool, but sometimes are probably counter-productive. Any recipe involving eggs will have the eggs thrown about and broken before they're needed in the recipe, and a myriad foodstuffs get smashed and destroyed. Ax-Crazy: Probably the world's first media about cooking to use this trope. Badass Beard: Even more badass with mayo smeared all over it. Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The Catastrophic Crayfish episode starts with the two of them idly drinking coffee. The main chef notes that it tastes funny... and then, well, let's just say the slowed down playback of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is the more rational thing you see. For one thing, the chef is smiling. And there's a spinning Troll Face in there, too. The Christmas tree decorating scene in the Christmas episode. Berserk Button: It's mayonaise, Not swedish mayo! Bilingual Bonus: Much of the spoken language is screamed Swedish. It's generally more of the same badassery. In Stomachless Sticky Cakes, there's some spoken Finnish (which seems to mildly unsettle the chef). He says "Next time, we speak Finnish". In Cookie Cataclysm, the chef shouts "Använd ett verktyg för att smöra plåten!" (Use a tool to butter the oven tray!). He then grabs one of his assistants and uses his face to butter it. Call Back: Whenever something is repeated, the last videos where they appeared are put on top of the current one. such as screaming "UGN!!!" or streaming ketchup on something. Camera Abuse: When the Chef punches more butter into already sizzling butter in Chop Chop Carnage Stew, it, of course, splatters on the camera and the cameraman. Catch Phrase: "It's good for you!" "Add X - if you want to. We won't. This is REGULAR!" "Swedish style!" The page quote. UGN! (Swedish for oven) "You gotta be gentle with it, like a Swedish lady!" Chef of Iron Comedic Sociopathy: Waterboarding a friend with milk for entertainment. The outtake's caption points out that he's actually drowning. "Next time, we'll need a new assistant." Content Warnings: Rated "B" for Barbaric. "Food and gore. Violence. Ordinary swede." Death Metal: Probably one of the most metal cooking videos in existence. One of the themes is in this style. Dissimile: Bostongurka, "It's like pickles, except it's NOT!" Don't Try This at Home: The barbecue episode included the following disclaimer:
ATTENTION! Trained Swedes handling the fire. Do not attempt without being Swedish. Drunk Driver: While playing : Mario Kart Easter Egg: Click on the "Carrots are good for you" picture on the YouTube channel and you'll find this. Exactly What It Says on the Tin: "Swedish sidepork. It's pork, on the side." "Brown sauce, saucy and brown." " LIQUID BUTTER! Yellow liquid and BUTTERY." Eye Scream: The guy shoves lemons into his eyes during the Superior Smörgåscake episode. He also squeezes lemon juice into his eyes in Catastrophic Crayfish. And rubs onions under his eyes in the Meatball Massacre. The very end of the Christmas episode has the chef in the process of removing another guy's eyeball with a spoon, which is seen again (and again) in the April Fool's episode. Finns with Fearsome Forests: One appears in the Sticky Cake episode. The Chef doesn't know what to make of him, and even the video description isn't sure. Gainax Ending: "Supreme Swedish Pilsner-Sausage" ends with one of the Swedes saying "next time" before having his head spin around and distort while he screams. The screen then informs us "he died". A Glass in the Hand: Whenever something needs juicing, squeezing or mashing, it stands a fair chance of getting crushed to death in one hand and the contents sprayed everywhere. Gratuitious Korean: "Sidepork Pandemonium" features the cook karate chop butter in half, indicated by a Korean flag in the top right corner and subtitles (in Korean). Heroic BSOD: The chef at the end of 'Massive Meatloaf Mayhem', having realised they forgot to buy mayo. Kubrick Stare: The chef performs a sustained one during the intermission of "Carnivorous Christmas Table." Lad-ette: In Cookie Cataclysm, one is being served. Even the chef has to quickly run away in fear. Large Ham Last Note Nightmare: The Christmas episode. OH DEAR GODS, THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE. Mushroom Samba: Start of the "Catastrophic Crayfish". No Indoor Voice: The chef melts butter by . screaming at it Norse By Norsewest: Averted. Once an Episode: Pre-dinner snack! Leading to the below. Pet the Dog: "Moose meat. You gotta be gentle with it, just like a Swedish lady... swedish ladeh" Product Placement: is played at the beginning of Massive Meatloaf Mayhem. Mario Kart Mr. Fox is also seen playing it in "Catastrophic Crayfish". Obviously, the specific brands of food used. In episode 3, the chef gets his ingredients from an ICA supermarket. Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: The thrash metal intro. "REGULAR. ORDINARY. SWEDISH MEAL TIME!!!! (IN SWENGLISH.)" Rated M for Manly: Probably the manliest chef ever! Real Men Eat Meat: He spends the entirety of "Satanic Salad" making... well, a salad. When he realizes this at the very end, he snaps. Caption: Next time, we'll figure out who the *** tricked us into making a *** salad ***. Rock-Paper-Scissors: The Chef challenges Mr. Fox into one to decide which one will take care of the laundry in "Catastrophic Crayfish". He loses.
"One day, Mr. Fox!"
Running Gag: Pre-dinner mayonnaise. IT'S GOOD FOR YOU. Especially noticeable when they forget the mayo in one video. Our hero is a sobbing wreck at the end of it. Smashing a package to empty out its contents, or tearing out the lid with its teeth, and throwing the contents willy-nilly at the cooking utensils. Say My Name: "Misterrr Foxxx!" Schedule Slip: They have not updated in a while. Recently, their Facebook page stated that they were still around, but still needed to plan some ideas, and stated there could be some new episodes next year. Shout-Out: If you look at the aforementioned secret video, you can see glimpses of " THE MAYO IS A LIE". It's a shoutout to an old Something Awful creepypasta/ARG that concerned numerically-named videos displaying bizarre black-and-white videos, purported to have been broadcast to a tiny Colorado town in the nineties. Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Mr. Fox. Sound Effect Bleep: The bleating of sheep for profanity. Probably a Shout-Out to Epic Meal Time. Testosterone Poisoning: From Sweden, with love. This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: See page quote. Once an Episode, even. This Is Reality: The series frequently reminds the viewer that these are perfectly run-of-the-mill cooking methods by Swedish standards. Throw It In: In Satanic Salad, the pull tap on the can of corn snaps off. The chef has to improvise opening the can. Title Scream: The newer videos have two rock intros, one in the style of thrash metal and the other in glam metal. Token Non-Human: Mr. Fox. ( Not that one.) Trademark Favorite Food: The chef always grabs a spoonful of Pre-Dinner Mayonnaise. Up to Eleven: Literally. Their cooker has a maximum setting of 11 drawn on it. In one episode, "Eleven is not present! Six will do!" And in another, they try to set the stove to eleven by turning two dials to one. Inverted in yet another, "Twelve is present! Eleven will do!" Use Your Head: "PREPARE THE MEAT!" (stars headslamming the table to tenderize the meat) Also used to "chop" onions in "Deadly Thinbread Rolls". The Voiceless: Instead of talking, Mr. Fox just sort of shakes. World of Badass: Sweden, if these videos are to be believed. Wrestler in All of Us: Occasionally used as food preparation techniques. BODY SLAM THE SAUSAGE! You Kill It, You Bought It: The host may have become Jultomten, aka Santa Claus. Nästa gång...
