'''[[http://www.jonlajoie.com/ Jonathan "Jon" Lajoie]]''' (born August 21, 1980) is a Canadian comedian, actor, rapper, singer, musician and Internet celebrity from Montreal, Quebec. Lajoie first became popular through the music video "Everyday Normal Guy", in which he, in ironic contrast to typical rappers, sings about his bland, run-of-the-mill daily activities and his peaceful nature.

More recently, Lajoie made his television debut as Taco on ''Series/TheLeague'', currently in its fourth season.

!!Associated Tropes:

* {{Adorkable}}: "Everyday Normal Guy".
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In the ''Mysteries of the Universe'' video:
-->"Why does war exist? Why do we hate, why do we keep killing each other and who keeps making these Creator/MartinLawrence movies? ''Film/BigMommasHouse 2''? ''Two''!? [[CurseCutShort What the f]]--"
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: MC Historical Inaccuracy in WTF Collective 2.
-->''I drop lyrical bombs like Hiroshima in '73\\
I write rhymes like [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]] when he wrote [[Literature/TheDiaryOfAYoungGirl Ann Frank's Diary]]\\
[[CriticalResearchFailure Which is about the Civil War of 1812 in Germany]]''
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: A lot in "Very Super Famous", for example:
-->''[[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff All the Mexicans love me]] down in the South America\\
From Colombia to Brazil all the way to Algeria''
* AudienceParticipationSong: At the end of his shows, he keeps [[{{Squick}} the chorus]] to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "2 Girls 1 Cup Song"]] going and invites the audience to sing along.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Zombie Chorus Guy in WTF Collective 3.]]
* BeigeProse: The "Show Me Your Genitals" trilogy is built around this trope.
* BiggusDickus: [[BlatantLies 25 inches long and 12 inches thick]] claims MC Vagina in "I Kill People".
* BlackComedy: The foundation of his humor, along with SelfDeprecation. '''Nothing''' is off-limits. Good examples are probably "Cold-Blooded X-Mas," "Mel Gibson Love Song," and "Rapist Glasses"/"Pedophile Beards."
* BlackComedyRape: At the end of WTF Collective [[spoiler:Numbers 1 & 3 and You Are Not Alone]].
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Used frequently in songs.
* BrickJoke: MC Fatigue, passing out (a-gain) in WTF Collective 2 [[spoiler: and finally waking up at the very end of WTF Collective 3.]]
-->''[[spoiler: "... did I miss anything?"]]''
* BoastfulRap:
** Parodied in the "Everyday Normal Guy" and "Show Me Your Genitals" trilogies, as well as the epic "WTF Collective."
** Turned UpToEleven in "Very Super Famous"
* BrandX: ''Everywhere'' in "Please Use This Song." Every single BlandNameProduct is named "Your Brand Here."
* TheCameo: MC Vagina can be spotted in the crowd shots during "Pop Song".
* CanadaEh: Jon Lajoie is Canadian, and while he himself is not that stereotypical, there is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOntheTin MC Canadian Stereotype]] from WTF Collective 2.
* CasanovaWannabe: MC Vagina is pretty obviously this; his BlatantLies, JerkAss personality, and naked misogyny aside, there's only one video where he's shown hanging out with women, and none of them look very happy to be there.
* ClusterFBomb: Most apparent in "F**k Everything". Which drops the F-bomb 62 times from start to finish.
-->''Fuck you! Fuck me! Fuck the sky! Fuck trees! Fuck the sun, I don't need heat or vitamin D!''
* CreepyMonotone: MC Vagina.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming: While pretty much all of his songs are NSFW, there is one song that is kid-friendly. "Stay At Home Dad". [[SweetDreamsFuel A song about him taking care of his infant son]]. [[{{Squee}} D'AWWWWWWWWWW]]. And also [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] because musically it's a Music/RageAgainstTheMachine parody. I TAKE CARE OF MY CHILDREN!
* ADateWithRosiePalms: "Alone In The Universe."
* DeadpanSnarker: During the breaks between songs in his live performances, and his non-musical Website/YouTube sketches. But even some of his songs are bitingly sarcastic and incredibly cynical (see "Pop Song" and "Radio-Friendly Song").
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: Chorus Guy in WTF Collective 2]]
* DudeNotFunny: An "in-universe"- example He [[LampshadeHanging calls himself out in the lyrics]] to the final chapter of the "Show Me Your Genitals" trilogy, "I Kill People," after making an Anne Frank joke. Also used by [[TooSoon MC Inappropriate Rhymes in WTF Collective 2]] and {{Lampshaded}} again by [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin MC Extremely]] [[MoralGuardians Politically Correct]]
* DudeNotIronic: ''WTF Collective'' features MC Doesn't Know What Irony Is. In either context we hear him use the word, it's not clear exactly what he thinks it means -- the point is, he doesn't get it.
* DullSurprise: MC Vagina.
* EruditeStoner: "We don't have racism in Canada. We have... weed."
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The rapper names in his WTF Collective videos.
* ExplainExplainOhCrap: Courtesy of [[MeaningfulName MC Uses Time Machines Irresponsibly]]:
-->''Then I traveled in time to the night I was conceived\\
I met up with my parents and we hung out all night\\
[[TemporalParadox Come to think of it, they didn't have any alone time...]] [[PuffOfLogic NOOO]]--''
* GivingRadioToTheRomans: MC Uses Time Machines Irresponsibly gave his iPhone to Bill Gates in 1973.
* GratuitousFrench: At the end of Very Super Famous we hear "For all you French ladies out there: Le feu sur le cheval était brisé" (Meaning: The fire on the horse was broken).
* HarmfulToMinors: "A New Beginning" is about a time when Jon saw ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning'' as a young boy, and was horribly put-off by the events in the movie, unable to understand anything that was going on or why that woman got murdered.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: MC Vagina, especially in these lines from "I Kill People"
-->''So if you'll come at me I'll trip you then [[FreudianSlip I'll suck your nuts]]\\
I-i mean I'll punch your nuts\\
Sucking them would be gay and [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I'm totally not gay]]\\
I'm all about V-A-G-I-N-A.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: MC Vagina is a textbook case; he barely even sings, he just kind of mumbles along to the tune in a flat tone. The guy in "I Can Dance" also qualifies... though being a terrible singer is the [[BlackComedy least of his problems]].
* HypocriticalHumor: MC Extremely Politically Correct in "WTF Collective 2" references "Michael Jackson Is Dead".
-->''[Lajoie's lyrics] are offensive, insensitive, and in very bad taste\\
Like that guy who wrote that song when Michael Jackson passed away''
* IAmTheBand: His "WTF Collective"s and "Pop Song" parody this.
* LampshadeHanging: The final chapter of the "Everyday Normal Guy" trilogy, "Everyday Normal Crew."
-->''We just a regular, everyday, normal crew\\
The joke's gettin' old, I fuckin' agree with you\\
I'm just repeatin' the same shit from Normal Guy 1 & 2\\
What a twist, in this one I'm rappin' about my friends too\\
I think this cow's been milked dry...'''[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch muthafucka]]''' ''
* LyricalDissonance: ''All'' of his songs.
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: MC Vagina is proficient in this:
** "My love is like lightning. It gives girls orgasms. My dick is like an airplane. It gives girls orgasms.
** "Yeah, the Eiffel Tower is a lot like my dick, it's big and it stings when soap gets inside the tip."
** "Fame is like a tree. It helps you get pussy."
* MindScrew: Visit his website. [[http://www.jonlajoie.com/ We DARE You]]. And in his commercial for hands.
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: "Michael Jackson is Dead" plays with this. Jon both defends Jackson ("we didn't care if it was true or false") and insults him ("remember when he dangled his kid from a balcony"), but his biggest TakeThat is to people who made Michael Jackson jokes when he was alive and then canonized him as a saint when he died. His overall point seems to be that Jackson was a human being with flaws and foibles, and that dying doesn't change that.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed:
** Most of the WTF Collective members are based on famous rappers, at least in their voices and delivery. For instance, MC Fatigue is Sean Paul and MC Final Verse is 50 Cent.
** Also "Pop Song" has some the typical BoyBand stereotypes, such as the good looking lead singer, and the effeminate one that is probably gay.
** MC Vagina references [[Creator/GeorgeClooney Jeff Clooney]], [[Music/SouljaBoy Boy Soldier]], [[Creator/BradPitt Brad Pitts]], and Puff Daddy. He likes to go to famous people parties with them.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Chorus Guy makes it clear that he's only singing the chorus because he can't find any other work. [[spoiler:Even then, it's not enough to keep him from killing himself.]]
** This is also the main joke of "Please Use This Song" - the singer creates the most commercial-friendly song ever, while spending the entire video begging a company to license the song out and give him some exposure.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: His sister, Jessica Lajoie. Sure, she's good-looking, has a good voice, but... yeah. She even says, in an introduction to one of her videos, that she's [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling not quite sure what happened in the gene pool for them to be related]]. She loves him all the same.
* PermaStubble: He's only rarely clean-shaven.
* {{Pluralses}}: {{Inverted}} with MC Don't Know How to Pluraize Word.
* PrecisionFStrike: {{Inverted}} in the "Pointless Profanity" video. [[GoshDarnItToHeck OH SNAPPING TURTLE!]]
* ProtestSong:
** Surprisingly played straight in "Song for the Students," a song in support of the 2012 Quebec student protests.
** Also, arguably "Osama Is Dead."
* RedHerring: Before WTF Collective 3 was released, [[spoiler:MC Vagina appearing to sing the chorus at the end of WTF 2]]
* RefugeInAudacity: Cranked UpToEleven
* RunningGag: "You want some of this, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Bitch]]?"
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: "I Kill People":
-->''Guns don't kill people\\
(Uh uh)\\
''I'' kill people\\
[[DramaticGunCock (Chik chik)]]\\
With guns\\
* SelfDeprecation: The foundation of his humor, along with BlackComedy. The best example is "Too Fast."
** Another example is his joke Kickstarter video, where he declares, after listing off people that make less than him (decorated war veterans, teachers, doctors), he declares that it's "because what I do is way more important." Cue clip from "Show Me Your Genitals."
* ShoutOut: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG8iAtpavK4 His music video for "A New Beginning"]] can be considered this for the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' film series. Even the song's name is a reference to [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning one of the films in the series.]] (Specifically, the song is about an incident when he watched the movie as a kid and didn't understand what was going on.)
* SocietyMarchesOn: In "WTF Collective 2," MC In The Closet Homosexual bemoans how gay marriage isn't legal in most of the U.S, which stopped being the case in 2015 when the Supreme Court legalized it nationwide.
* SophisticatedAsHell: In "Fuck Everything":
-->''And fuck birth entering the world of space and time is a bitch\\
Searching for purpose in the random universe sucks dick!\\
Is it deterministic or am I free to choose my way?\\
[[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Did I choose to not give a fuck about ice cube trays?]]''
* {{Stripperific}}: The girls in the video for "Pop Song".
* SoundtrackDissonance: His 2016 work with his new band, Wolfie's Just Fine, can be considered this. Especially [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG8iAtpavK4 the music video for A New Beginning,]] where relatively calm folk music music is played while the video shows murder scenes reminiscent of a ''Frachise/FridayThe13th'' movie.
* StylisticSuck: All of MC Vagina's songs.
** "The Best Song" turns this trope [[UpToEleven up to eleven. And then twelve.]]
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: MC Knows Too Many Facts About Bees ends his verse with "Just 'cause I know a lot about bees doesn't mean that I'm gay." As it turns out, [[spoiler:he's also MC In the Closet Homosexual.]]
* TalkingToHimself: Every member of the WTF Collective is played by Jon.
* TakeThat: In "I Kill People:"
-->I'm bad, like the movie ''Film/AttackOfTheClones''
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: His songs that don't parody BoastfulRap pretty much always fit this style.
* ThreeMinutesOfWrithing: The video for "Pop Song".
* TropeName: "Everyday Normal Guy," "Pop Song," "Radio-Friendly Song."
* UnfortunateName: The host of Pointless Profanity, Go Fuckyourself.
* Website/YouTube: How he became famous. The reason he routinely sells out comedy clubs, even thousands of miles away from his hometown, on weeknights.
* WHAMLine: [[spoiler: "You can't spell chorus without... Vagina."]]
** Also, in "Tennis Ball:"
*** ''"...helps me forget about [[spoiler: my cancer.]]"''
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: [[spoiler:After Chorus Guy shoots himself, he comes back as a zombie:]]
-->''This must be a bad dream\\
Why am I still singing?\\
I motherfucking killed myself...''
* AWildRapperAppears: Parodied in "Pop Song":
-->''And now the token rap verse that doesn't make any sense\\
But helps me get a small percentage of the urban music market''
* WordSaladLyrics: MC Confusing's entire schtick:
-->"And I play air guitar with the tuba toothpaste, and I say, karate pencil case, and put it on tape."
