Many videos by YouTube user "Aloyalgamer", particularly his Let's Play of Suikoden II. Among other things, he sometimes attempts to voice act for the characters' written dialogue (his voice for Luca Blight sounds like a tea kettle on helium), he is infamous for dropping incredibly blatant "hints" towards later plot events, often forgets to keep track of time and routinely ends videos mid-scene, mid-battle or even mid-sentence, and in later videos frequently belched during the recordings. He once recorded a series of videos after having recently undergone dental surgery. Perhaps most egregiously, however, was when he nonchalantly and very loudly chowed down on popcorn while recording the final sequence of the game. And yet he is just so enthusiastic about everything he does and possesses such a degree of earnestness his videos are made better for it, not worse.
This advertisement video for the Appalachian State University. Everyone in the comments agrees the quality is so bad as to be hilarious. A hilarious comment (quoted in this article) sums it up, "whoever came up with this video as a recruitment tool and whoever approved it's[sic] release should be shot, shot, shot."
When not outright insulting, the sexism in Arrow in the Head website comes off like this. Apparently, watching Cowboys & Aliens is "cinematic equivalent of nailing a blonde and a brunette at the same time in a pristine bathroom stall".
Banana Clan, an animated series where all the episodes that are more than 5 seconds long are HILARIOUS.
Blingee. It's been described as 'Photoshop for retards', and is way too annoying for even MySpace teenyboppers to actually use, but wonderful when used ironically (see liberal blog Wonkette for shining examples).
Colin's Bear Animation, an eleven-second video where a terribly animated bear dances to a song from MOTHER 3. It was apparently made by a disgruntled student for an "Animation Arts" course which was taught by a rather incompetent teacher.
The George W. Bush article once said that he was "one of the greatest presidents in American history," that he was "successfully able to salvage the Hurricane Katrina rescue effort after it was sabotaged by a Democratic/Islamo-Fascist conspiracy" and that his unpopularity was due mainly to him being forced by the Democratic Congress to push through bailout packages.
At least part of the reason for its popularity with trolls lies with its creator having a massive case of Small Name, Big Ego, and handing out free passes to anyone who supports him in unrelated discussions.
Dusk's Dawn is a My Little Pony equivalent of The Room. The hilariously sloppy writing, voice acting, pacing, animation, and Narm provide a high entertainment value and a good laugh.
Any Flash animations by dusthillguy, the most famous perhaps of which is Monsquaz (NSFW, though certain organs are censored.)
This "rebuttal" to a negative review of FATAL. It's apparently intended seriously, but FATAL's "creators", Byron Hall and "Burnout" take it too far. Hall kindly shoots himself in the foot with a grenade launcher when his criticism of the review demonstrates no apparent familiarity with basic language techniques. For example, he fails to recognize a simile, describes obvious repetition for comic effect as "redundancy", and doesn't remember that "motherfucker" is almost never intended literally. It's a hilarious read when you're not raging.
What makes his apparent failure to grasp figurative language even funnier is that he frequently claims Sartin and MacLennan have a worse grasp of English than he does. Yet they're the ones using metaphor and simile, and he's the one failing to recognise it.
Or to see them deciding Unknown Armies is a terrible, poorly conceived game because it simplifies drunkenness to a rule of thumb rather than cramming in unnecessary complexity.
If nothing else, you've gotta love the way Hall genuinely tries to take on the tone of an intellectual (going on an on about how superior his grammar is, the complexities of the research he did, how he's just too smart for religion, etc.) while simultaneously insisting upon the undeniable necessity of canyon-wide sphincters and 'fist-fucking' in any proper RPG experience.
And it's not even that he's trying to justify "fist-fucking." He's trying to use the most scholarly language he can imagine, while also stopping to comment "Cookie Monster is cool! They call that death metal." That last one actually suggests he thinks by typing this rebuttal he is involved in a real-time conversation with the reviewers, because it was in response to a rhetorical question made for the sake of a joke.
Faux Paw the Techno Cat. Four cartoons (1, 2, 3 and 4) about a spin off character of McGruff the Crime Dog, a little cat called Faux Paw who teaches kids how to use the internet safely. The animation is like something from an mid-90s PC game, the music sounds like it was stolen from an episode of Looney Tunes and the messages are really off the mark. But despite all of that, they have some strange, inexplicable appeal.
Gaia Online is responsible for a series of three short films produced as part of the build-up to their 2007 Halloween event, because they wanted to do something different. Titled MMVII, production was outsourced to Idealogue with a next-to-zero dollar budget, and, frankly, the films were bad. The animation stunk, the voice-acting was phoned in, and the characters were more than a little flat, at least compared to their portrayal in the storyline comics. The userbase immediately fell in love with the movies because the hilariously bad quality turned them into A-grade riffing material - some users even made parody fan-subs of the movies. They're still remembered fondly by most of the users who were around for that event, mostly due to the Nostalgia Filter.
Gaming in the Clinton Years is an archive of hilariously bad video game reviews. Mentioned quite a lot of times on Retsupurae's channel on YouTube (which mocks bad Let's Play videos), there is nothing that can be said about the person/organization's videos that isn't "What the?" The videos themselves are from a TV show called Flights of Fantasy that supposedly aired in the 1990s. The organization NAViGaTR (which stands for National Association of Video Game Testers and Reviewers), of whose board George Wood, the man giving the reviews, was chairman, simply uploaded these videos to a wider public. Some of the noticeable and slightly disturbing things Wood has said in the videos include:
"Why not have a game where you have to drive an ambulance to the hospital while obeying the road signs?" "I have a challenge to Eidos: create a sequel in which Lara Croft gets breast cancer." "Donkey Kong Country is truly perfect. If you do not get this new generation of Donkey Kong madness, you are stupid!"
The NA Vi Ga TR page they're hosted on has some other George Wood-related gems as well, such as the video game awards show with him and another host trading banter so forced and unfunny it loops back around to hilarious, and the game show "Who Wants To See My Derriere?" where people (often kids) compete to win the chance to see George Wood's ass (no, really.)
The Garfielf videos. Originally created by PilotRedSun as a parody of Garfield, the original video inspired many fan-made follow-ups. The videos are known for their terrible artwork that looks like it was done in Paint, text-to-speech voice acting, hilariously bad dialogue, and sometimes downright surreal plots.
Jesus is Savior is a website made by a Christian fundamentalist that hates everything including rock music, Catholics, atheists, public schools, Alister Crowley, women wearing pants, the New International Version Bible and everyone and everything not his own denomination. It looks like it was designed by a schizophrenic, but that's the beauty of it.
Jon Lajoie has an uncanny ability to generate media that is So Bad It's Good.
Let's Paint TV, a call-in TV show where the host runs on a treadmill while painting and mixing drinks. Sadly, most of the people who call the host are disgruntled gang members, jerks who make fun of the host, and perverts who hit on his female co-host. It has to be seen to be believed.
Master Wabit's Earthbound LP could count, he's playing it blind, loses to almost every boss, talks to himself like a mad man, and it is hilarious.
There are many Garfield parody sites out there. However, The Mind of Odie is not one of the better ones. Basically, it takes old Garfield strips and re-edits them to give Odie his own thought bubbles. It seems fine and all, but the execution is very poorly handled:
First of all, the thought bubbles look as if they were drawn in using MS Paint.
The added thought bubbles usually add nothing to the original strip. Much of Odie's lines are just generic things you would expect a dog to say if it could speak, with no substance. In fact, many of the new lines seem vaguely like from Dug from Up.
Occasionally, in the descriptions, the author asks the readers to send in their own submissions to his or her e-mail address, in a way that sounds almost desperate.
Strangely, the weird "anime puppet" style that every Newgrounder and his brother uses is used in a completely un-ironic fashion. It can take a while to realize this.
In that same vein, The Trapped Trilogy needs a mention. The puzzles are laughable, the story is stupid, and the whole thing takes itself way too seriously.
In the past, Newgrounds actually gave an award called "Turd of the Week" to Flash animations that essentially were this trope. The award went to the animation that got the lowest rating without being auto-deleted. Sure enough, once the animation got the award, high scoring reviews came pouring in. Just read the reviews on someofthem.
PilotRedSun specializes in these kinds of videos. His videos contain hideously demented and poor artwork, irritating background music, and voices done by text-to-speech machines. However, the resulting creations are so Dadaist, you can't help but appreciate them. This was very intentional, as proven by this exchange in the comments of Rocko's Gaming Tragedy:
gofruity: clearly the budget went to the animation department
PilotRedSun: all of the budget went into the snacks I ate while making this
Robert E. Mcelwaine. Because only one man could post this kind of insanity with a straight face.
Joe Jonah Euclid, who invented the word "entrepreturiting" and would loudly proclaim that he would create two zones of metaphysics so that he could have missionaries (why?) porgress miraciously (what?) as part of a plan to reveal how all Protestant churches are run by criminally insane psychic child molesters.
Sath McFarland (slightly, slightly NSFW), a pretentious parody of Seth MacFarlane. The videos, specifically Family Man, consist of a slideshow of images on random backgrounds with unfitting music and YouTube Poop-esque effects while being voiced by a computer speech program. And it parodies everything wrong with the newer episodes.
A couple of scenes in Survival of the Fittest fit this. One of the most notable examples was anything to do with Carson Baye of v3. A BandouExpy (right down to copying his infamous Kick the Dog moment almost word for word), he was also an Occidental Otaku, who introduced himself on the island by killing rabbits and ending up walking towards a group while covered in blood. He then analysed the group, and put them into Moe stereotypes. Other antics include shouting out a Death Note reference and playing on his DS in a middle of a gunfight. His death scene? Involves him taking a crap in the middle of a dangerzone. While quoting Pokémon. Many other examples on the site exist, that it's impossible to name them all. The author has attempted to redeem himself. He succeeded, and constantly mocks his older "work". One of his v4 characters, Milo Taylor, is half apology for, half parody of Carson.
T Barb Drills and his friend made Golduck Production, a video described as "This is intended to be laughably bad. considering; all the actors are action figures, the cast are mostly morons, it was made after 11:00 PM, Me and my best friend were feeling kooky, I got new Pokémon figures, and the dialogue is nuts. This was made for a good laugh and I was not serious at the time of the recording." It's on Youtube and you can find it here.
The Official Flash "Animation" Series Transformers: Action Blast. Aside from standard bad Flash Animation and a plot ripped wholesale from the pilot episode of Transformers: Generation 1, the numerous non-sequitur (The insane rambling narrator, Megatron being dully outraged by cars, the Autobots scanning theirs alt-modes with Eye Beams...) makes it strangely hilarious.
Time Cube was a website created by Otis Eugene "Gene" Ray, the self-proclaimed "wisest man on earth". It was dedicated to his schizophrenic Word Salad Philosophy that postulates that time is cubic, by means of some rather imaginative reasoning. The site consisted of a single page made up entirely of a staggeringly long vertical column of incomprehensible, almost dream-like non-sequiturs presented in a completely inconsistent typesetting. The sheer volume of crazy present in Time Cube elevated the site to almost mythic levels, making it an endlessly quotable joy once your head stopped spinning from the cognitive dissonance. An archived copy of the page can be viewed here.
TV Tropes can be this, thanks to the occasional internet tough guys or butthurt fanboys that edit this site. Relatedly, Troper Tales used to have several subpages so bad that had to be seen to be believed. In the Insufferable Genius Troper Tales page, for example, the typical entry is summary of what arrogant, dog kicking assholes they are quickly followed by "but I'm really a nice personon the inside!". The infamous tale of the boy who broke 33 pencils on the Troper Tales subpage of Beware the Nice Ones was also widely considered to fall into this category.
This was the opinion of several users of this site on the former name of the Boisterous Bruiser trope, The Toblerone. It was so obscure, so completely meaningless that on reading the trope definition the sheer cognitive dissonance pushed a minority of vocal readers to enter a Zen state of perfect understanding. It was "the sound of one hand clapping" of trope names.
In each Worth 1000 contest, the amazingly well done higher-ranked entries often contrast with the So Bad, It's Good entries that make up the rest.
The Spooge Monster is this for YouTube Poop standards. Almost all the new dialogue is recorded by the author himself (something highly unprofessional and frowned upon in YTP, since it defeats the point of editing) it's unnecessarily vulgar and disgusting even by YTP standards, and about 60% of it is pointless Padding (especially maddening because YTPs do not have a minimum run time). And yet, it's so pathetic it loops back around to being awesome.
"So ur with ur honey and yur making out wen the phone rigns. U anser it n the vioce is "wut r u doing wit my daughter?" U tell ur girl n she say 'my dad is ded'. THEN WHO WAS PHONE?"note For the uninitiated, this is a meme from 4chan's paranormal board. Other, similar So Bad, It's Good "creepypastas" can be seen here. Also, the webmaster of Bogleech has written his own page of intentionally So Bad Its Good creepypasta, most notably The Dead Skull and The Day of All The Blood.
You don't have to understand French to laugh out loud at this clip It's a promotional clip for Nicolas Sarkozy's political party made by the movement's young adherents that became a national Crowning Moment of Funny. It has everything : voices that don't match the characters, ministers (even a former Prime Minister!!) doing a stupid dance, a cheesy, over-the-top song, a Five-Token Band in the beginning, a 5-seconds video of Obama and a pure WTF moment : see the guy driving the car with the sunglasses on ? He's blind.
"LE FUNK DOS MEMES" is a Brazillian rap about memes (as in notoriously overused memes like Rage Comics and Nyan Cat) sung by a vertically challenged rapper. Besides the poor quality of the song itself, the video features bizarre and questionable usage of memes (such as twerking Derpinas), over-the-top backup dancers, and the singer's face distoring into the "Me Gusta" face in a way that's both hilarious and disturbing.
Christine (Formerly Christopher, long story, formerly Christian) Weston Chandler's videos. Everything looks like it was shot through a jar of urine, most of the "humor" are random antics that just comes off as stupid, the music is terribly sung over the original songs, and the presenter is an immature Jerkass with a big case of unwarranted self importance. And yet the're the most laughably amateurish videos this side of the internet
