He never shows his face so that people don't recognize him. Likewise, when he appears at the school he never speaks so that people don't recognize his voice.
- Todd is pretty vocal about his hate for Glee so.....
- And Brad the pianist hates the Glee kids so....
- He used Glee's version of Smooth Criminal as a stinger in the Alien Ant Farm episode
Todd in the Shadows is really a Hunter.
Just look at him! He looks like one and dress like one. He hides in the shadows in order to hide his zombie nature from us. After he's done talking about the latest Lady Gaga song or whatever, he crawls out of his window and pounces on an unsespecting midnight jogger.
Todd In The Shadow's face will be revealed for the third-year anniversary special.
It just makes sense. It would also be a great dramatic twist like with 3D Lee.
- Or, alternatively, he'll stitch screening into his hoodie.
- Jossed, like with his Magfest appearance, he was wearing a black cloth over the top half of his head.
While watching, take a close look at the "protagonist"...Gray hoodie? Check. The Faceless
? Check. Seen in shadow most of the time? Check. Sound of a piano in the background? Check. Presumably, the reason he's running is that someone tried to force him to listen to BIEEEEEEEEEEBERRRRRRR.
This only derives from the fact of Todd and Bieber both wore gray hoodies. But here's the thing, Todd is the bitter adult version of Bieber and the reason he gets so mad is he regrets being that whiny kid that couldn't sing. He got some piano lessons and learned how to sing, and presumably got a TARDIS
somehow to travel into the past and rail on pop music, including his shameful career.
- ...Which is why we never see his face!
- As explained here.
- Also, he mentioned having previously been a big fan of Usher...J-Bieb's producer!
- And creepily, I once saw a short little MTV promo featuring Bieber playing the piano...
- Someone must make a fanfic of this. NOW!
A.K.A The most beautiful man in the world. Hence why he must forever dwell in the shadows, lest he be crushed beneath a mass of swooning fangirls and fanboys eager to tear off a peice.
The sweatshirt is so he can be shot from behind without arousing suspicion. Alternatively, he might be Father
...it could happen.
Todd In The Shadow is Ke$ha
An alternative to his being Justin Bieber- Ke$ha, years later, drops out of fame utterly wasted and uncared about, however she is kidnapped by a team of mad doctors who completely alter her body, voice and remove the effects of years of alcohol consumption from her system. She escapes, then broods on her lack of talent and wasted life. She learns how to play the piano, finds a TARDIS and uses it, adopts a secret identity and becomes a pop song reviewer, in the hopes of making her former self and pop music associates rethink the music that got them executed by the Seahorses
in the future.
- That scenario... is so... epic.
Todd In The Shadows is a former one hit wonder from the future
Going off above guesses, Todd is a former one hit wonder from the future. In fact, he might even be a one hit wonder who's one hit was a cover. He did say in his Top 10 Worst Songs of 1987 he felt sorry for those types of artists. Unable to deal with the fact his only claim to fame was off a cover of some "old" song instead of an original by him, Todd travels back to our time period to review "current" pop songs. His one hit might even be one of the songs he's reviewed.
Todd is an albino.
He wasn't kidding about being black. The reason for his decidely light complexion (from what we have seen) is that he is albino. This also explains why he has to be covered at all times, because albinos have very sensitive skin.
Apparently he's both black and Asian-American. Hiro is of African-American and Korean-Japanese ancestry. There's also the sword he uses to commit harakiri
...it could be explained somehow.
- The Monster is Obfuscating Stupidity when it's around people like Xykon or Redcloak who it knows to be smart and cunning, because it also knows that if they should learn that the Monster is smart, logical and willing to use its powers for reasons it wants to, it might end up dead, enslaved or on the run. It occasionally uses its powers for things it wants, such as teleporting O-Chul, but whenever it does so it continues to Obfuscate Stupidity so nobody catches on. However, occasionally things become a little too much for the Monster, so it teleports to Earth and lets off steam in the most harmless way possible... reviewing pop music. To cover its tracks, the Monster changes shape to Todd, but because of habit, it/he always wears the hoodie and stays in the shadows. So far it's worked, but God knows what'll happen if anyone else on Earth (or in the OOTS-verse) finds out...
He's been American before, and kept the liking for hoodies. After his last disastrous outing, the Master's taking a break dissecting the worst parts of Earth culture.
- Furthermore, the piano is his TARDIS.
- No, it's the Event Synthisiser from Doctor Who Classics #7!
Hey, it could happen.
The next review will be of DEV 2.0
- From how he reacts to seeing them and his line "One crisis at a time" it would not be a stretch.
- Just because "Obscurus in the Shadows" makes so much sense as a name.
- Lupa is already married
- ...OT 3?
- We've never seen Todd's face, maybe he is her husband. His Lupa-themed desktop wallpaper isn't a sign that he's a crazy stalker, just a devoted spouse.
Todd has red hair
Or some other recessive hair color like dirty blond.
- Jossed. The Head video showed his hair is black/dark brown. (Thought I supposed it COULD be dyed.)
- Confirmed on his Twitter.
In his review of Chris Brown's "Deuces", there's a bit of static just before the "Valentimes" line. It's just for a split second. This digital distortion is similar to the distortion in Marble Hornets
and Everyman HYBRID
. Maybe Slendy's a fan of the songs Todd bashes?
- Slender Man does not approve of the hatred of Take It Off. Slender Man liked Take It Off.
- There's a theory that wearing a mask keeps Slendy from finding you. This is why Todd never shows his face.
He has a hoodie, he recently came down with MRSA (often pronounced 'Mer-sah') he survived it, suggesting that he's resilient and refuses to die. He also goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge
whenever people make extremely terrible pop music (e.g. Deuces, but also in 'Soul Sister' when he says that he will hunt down the lead singer). Gaga isn't the only monster who is mutating quickly.
- Wellll....MRSA itself isn't a killer. It simply fosters infections and is resistant to antibiotics. However, the staph infections that often appear in its wake can be lethal, so "resilient and refusing to die" both still apply.
- The Shadow?
- The SHADOW!
- The Shadow.
It was said in the forum, and it's epicly awesome, so I added it here.
Todd will dress up like a normal person at Magfest and will not reveal to anybody that he is Todd In The Shadows
It will be a way to keep himself anonymous. He might also go by a different name or Todd might just be his stage name. He might also try to be mute or alter his voice so that nobody will recognize him.
- Jossed. He wears his hoodie and a full face mask.
When Todd finally unmasks himself, it will be a crowd shot
It's the best way to technically say he showed his face, while screwing with his fans. In a review or other TGWTG-affiliated video, Todd will be just an extra with no familiar clothes or features.
The crossover review of Head
was imagined/hallucinated by Todd.
At the end of the review, we get a shot of Todd at his piano flanked by Paw and Roses, and they're all singing "Daydream Believer". Fade to black for the credits. Fade back in, it's the same shot but with just Todd. Could just be a coincidence, but the way it's edited seems to imply they were never there to begin with.
- Todd actually mentions this theory during this review's joint commentary with Paw and Roses, and it meets with their approval.
Todd hides his face out of fear of being killed by a Death Note
Any other explanations he makes for hiding his identity are lies because if he made it public that he is in danger, he would only put himself at a grater risk. Not only does he make a point to hide his face, but he hasn't revealed his full name. As for why he's being targeted, and by who (Kira?), I can't say.
- He's being targeted by Justin Beiber, who managed to get his hands on a Death Note.
- It's lucky YouTube usernames don't count, as it would be a bloodbath. Though, if you've ever read YouTube comments, perhaps it would be for the best.
- Executives from major record labels, who feel Todd is becoming too big a threat. Executives have been known to posses Death Notes before.
Because they also wear hoods and it's as good as anything else?
Like Judge Fear from Judge Dredd
or Black Mage of 8-Bit Theater
, seeing Todd's face would drive you mad
. That's why he wears masks and hides in the shadows.
- This may hold credence. In a recent Nostalgia Chick review, the Makeover Fairy took his mask off. While it was The Unreveal for us, she freaked out looking at it.
Todd in the Shadows is actually this guy.....
Hey, it could happen
"Born This Way" will make Todd in the Shadows go totally batshit insane.
Come on, it's leaps and bounds more surreal than any of Gaga's earlier music videos. He's going to see it, and it can't be good for him...
- I'm going with Friday instead.
- Subverted, at least with "Born This Way". He's perfectly fine. "Judas", on the other hand.
He hides his face because his disco-ball skin would immediately reveal him as a vampire and attract an unfathomable amount of flamers
He uses the hoodie to not let Handsome Tom notice that he is half-blind (apparently Tom has tried contacting DJ Axis to get him to join The Game Heroes
) because he wants to try his hands on stuff other than remixing video game music.
Todd is That Aussie Guy in disguise.
If your wondering about the different humour styles, Todd mentioned stealing many of his jokes from friends and family. That's why he wears the hood: to prevent Doug from learning the truth.
Both don't show their real face and derive pleasure from mocking how horrible human culture is. But instead of painting broad strokes, he's decided to focus specifically on pop music.
A pianist who gets no respect from his peers and frequently has to hide his face. Watch the video for "The Saga Begins" and tell me otherwise.
That explains the hidden face and musical talent.
- That would also explain his Stalker with a Crush tendencies towards Lupa and the Nostalgia Chick's obsession with him (seeing as she was majorly infatuated with the musical before).
There is nothing special about Todd.
Since nearly everyone is convinced that he's someone
important, it is possible that he's actually a nobody
under that mask. He's just a well-spoken young man named Todd.
- Stupidest thing I've ever heard. Next you'll be suggesting Crookshanks is just a cat.
Well, why the hell not?
Both men hide their faces; we've never seen Todd drive, and we've never heard the Stig talk; ergo....
Todd is a convict hiding from the law.
A bit darker, but we already know he's a magnificent stalker. What else could he be up to in his free time??
Todd's got an Omega
deal going on under the hoodie.
Todd has Asperger's Syndrome.
- This troper has a friend with the disorder that sounds almost identical to Todd, voice, facial/mouth expressions (in Nostalgia Chick 's Movie Reviews), reactions to things, etc. It could happen? (And too, If he is One of Us, he'll Joss this one.)
- Or maybe your friend just has an uncanny resemblance to Todd.
- Or maybe your friend IS Todd.
Todd is a rogue or undercover Shade
- He says he once worked for Lord Vyce here. He joined the site shortly after Vyce was first foreshadowed (As a scout maybe?). The reason he hasn't been deactivated is that either Vyce cut the signal to protect him, leaving an extra ace up his sleeve in case he ever comes back, or he cut it himself as a result of enjoying his new job and wanting to distance himself from his old boss.
- Perhaps he's from one of the universes Vyce invaded, and was hired to help eliminate the Entity. He may even be from Vyce's universe: the reason he cloaks himself is because the cloak itself is designed to keep him alive in our universe. Kind of like
Todd is an Assassin
taking a stand against the Templar-run music industry.
- I mean, he constantly wears a hood!
- Why does he hide his face? Because he's a Humanoid Abomination with no real form; he butchered a random guy and made a skin suit out of him for when he needs to be seen in the light, but the only salvageable parts were the hands and lower face/upper chest, hence why he covers everything else. Why does he review bad pop songs? He wants to expose them to an audience that likely wouldn't hear them at all if it wasn't for him, hence inflicting soul-crushing despair among them. He can move in the space between spaces, he kills himself multiple times but gets better, and his pining for Obscurus Lupa is a Take That, Audience!, representing the face that Lupa is beloved by people who will never actually be able to even interact with her, much less date her, again making them despair. It's far from airtight, but if he starts ranting about the moon in a later video, be afraid...
- Hey, regarding the third option, black and white does make gray, and as far as we know, Todd might have a bleached-white face or even no face at all
Alternatively to the above, Todd is one of Slendy's
- And the Slenderman itself just really hates pop music, so it uses Todd as a voice box for its views on pop music. This explains why Todd himself actually seems to like some pop music, yet still pokes fun at it. It also explains the mask, since there's definitely no shortage of mask-wearing amongst Proxies...
"Every day I'm sufferin'." Being meguka is suffering. He wears the mask to cover how off-model he really is.
Krin is the Anti-Todd
Todd's title-card artist appears in Linkara's Mr T #2, also obscuring her face with a hoodie, her features over-exposed into blank whiteness. Female to Todd's male, light to his dark, visual instead of musical, Krin is his opposite. If they met, they would either make a perfect couple or annihilate each other.
Keeps his face covered, wears a hood, works with music? Of course, the Weavers' eyes were always visible, and Todd's never are... but then again, the Weavers have blue sclera.
Just listen to his thoughts as read by the Nostalgia Chick at the end of her What Women Want
review. "Lu... pa... lu... pa..."
Todd is Asian.
He doesn't wear shoes inside people's houses!
- That could also make him Scandinavian, since most Scandinavians take their shoes off at the door as well...
- He once tweeted that half his family were refugees from a communist dictatorship, which would probably make him either half Chinese or half Russian.
- Canadians also take their shoes off inside of other people's houses and a lot of Canadians have Scandinavian and/or Asian backgrounds. Maybe he's from Canada.
- It's actually quite common for people in Southern states like Virginia to be taught to take their shoes off inside.
Todd hides his face because he doesn't want some people in real life to know he listens to pop music
Or it started that way, and he stuck to it because it's funny.
Both wear hoodies, both hide their faces with backlighting (Banksy does this in Exit Through the Gift Shop
), both seem to have basic video editing abilities, and both make commentary on a specific kind of popular culture. The reason Banksy doesn't want to be revealed is because he'd lose his urban street cred if was caught making internet videos about Katy Perry songs.
Todd is secretly Gudda Gudda.
He put on a mask to hide his facial tattoos and made fun of his own silly verse in "Bedrock". Notice how in other reviews, he mentions the "grocery bag" line often. Gudda Gudda hopped online to mock his own verse to show that he's really a Stealth Parody
of modern hip hop.
And he reviews pop songs to throw off nosy investigators, thus allowing him to continue his operations in secret. It's also the reason why he keeps his face hidden.
He hides his face since proclaiming his love for his Estate is tantamount to a confession to breaking the Windflower Law. He tries to defend pop music from those
who would destroy it. Also, Jessie J is an Excrucian, and the song "Domino" was a flower rite
against the Estate of Analogies, by creating things that have the form and purpose of analogies, but don't actually work
Todd and Lindsey will review Body of Evidence.
During Todd and Film Brain's review of Sunday School Musical, Todd tried to get other reviewers to watch three other movies. These movies were Crossroads, From Justin to Kelly, and Body of Evidence. He and Lindsey already reviewed Crossroads and From Justin to Kelly, so logically Body of Evidence is next.
- Alternatively, he also mentioned a "50Cent movie" (possibly "Get Rich or Die Tryin'", so that may come about. ...Of course, more than likely not with the Nostalgia Chick...
Todd is the 3D form of Mr. Game and Watch
Guesses for Todd's 2013 year-end lists.
One thing to note is that some of these songs may not even make it on the Billboard End Of Year Top 100 Singles chart, or even make it into the Top 10 at all during the year.
(He actually went with any song that hit the Top 20 in his "Worst of 2012" review, but that doesn't have a noted page). Unless he changes his criteria again, if a song doesn't make it on the end year chart or in the Top 10/20 at all, it will more than likely only make it in his honorable/dishonorable mentions (if he even decides to show those).
- "Blurred Lines": Todd admitted that the song was only mediocre compared to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and Bruno Mars' "Treasure". While Todd enjoys the loose and funky beat of the song, he does has problems with the boring music video and the rapey undertones of the lyrics.
- In a later Tweet, Todd withdrew his approval of Pharrell's "Woo!", and called it annoying, and picked apart a few lyrics he didn't like that he didn't cover in the review. More than likely though, it will not be on either of his lists.
- "Feel This Moment"
- "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)": In his review of "Best Song Ever", he calls Teenage Kicks a butchering of a classic song. However, while he did not like it, it wasn't a big hit, and thus probably won't be on the list.
- An Austin Mahone song if it makes the list (which it probably won't), possibly with a comment along the lines of “If there’s anything worse than Bieber, it’s a Bieber ripoff.”
- "#thatPOWER": He hates will.i.am, he hates Bieber, I’m sure he’s gonna hate a collaboration between them.
- Either "We Can't Stop" or "Come And Get It" (or very likely both).
- "Wrecking Ball": Todd admitted that the song had potential to be good if it was given to a more talented singer and producer; however, Miley's bad girl baggage, blandness and emotional insincerity drag the song down, making it a contender for the "Worst of 2013" list.
- To add to it, Todd called it worse than "We Can't Stop", a song he didn't even remotely like, as that one made him feel something (a feeling of soul-crushing sadness)
- "Cruise (Remix)": In the review, he mentions that the original version was a finalist for the "Worst of 2012" list for its bro-douchiness, so it will likely make the "Worst of 2013" list.
- "Girl on Fire"
- If "Fine China" and/or "Beat It" somehow make the year-end list, one of them will probably make it.
- "Love More" has charted much and has the added sin of a Nicki Minaj guest verse.
- "Harlem Shake" will probably at least make his dishonorable mentions. If only for being the first chart-topper ever officially decided by YouTube. ("Gangnam Style" charted thanks to iTunes sales; "Harlem Shake" happened because Billboard started taking YouTube views into account.)
- Adding to it, he mentioned that he "(didn't) want to even dignify" the fact that it had been the number one song and had been chart-blocking "Thrift Shop" and "Suit and Tie".
- "Work Bitch": A terrible song by an artist that Todd thinks is past her prime.
- If that wasn't enough, the song was written and produced by will.i.am. Todd already hates two prior collaborations between will.i.am and Britney, so the third time won't likely be the charm.
- "Holy Grail": His review ravaged it and he called it "terrible" on Twitter.
- Even better, he compared it to "Lighters", which made it on his worst of 2011 list.
- "Gentleman": Hated it as a follow up to Gangnam Style.
- "Don't You Worry Child": Mentioned in the "Feel This Moment" review that he can't stand electronica/dance songs, showing this one specifically.
- "Fucking Problems"
- "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'Em Up)": Mentioned his hate for it on Twitter.
- "Here's to Never Growing Up": Similar to "We Can't Stop", in that he called it a party song that didn't sound remotely enjoyable, but rather sad.
- "Started From the Bottom": Thought it was incredibly boring and said that Drake sucks at singing about how grateful he is to have been so successful.
- As The Rap Critic flatly sums it up: "My friends and I were broke but now we're not; my friends and I were broke but now we're not."
- "The Fox": He hated "Disco Duck" which is a pretty good comparison. He also dubbed it "The musical equivalent of someone making fart noises into their hands" in the "Wrecking Ball" review, and mentioned in a tweet that he had no idea what the "joke" of the song was or why it was supposed to be funny.
- "Rap God" possibly solely for how homophobic it is.
- "23": A song filled with artists Todd hates. The only thing more obnoxious than Miley's singing is her rapping.
- "Roar": Mentioned in his 2013 Video Music Awards blog that he doesn't care for the song and calls the song boring during the "Applause" review. On Twitter, he calls "Roar" a worthless song which gets worse and worse with each successive listening. This all but assures its inclusion on the "Worst of 2013" list.
- "That's My Kind of Night" which gives him the chance to explain how generic Luke Bryan is.
- "Stay": He's sick of Rihanna and he called the song boring in his "Thrift Shop"/"Suit and Tie" video.
- "Timber": He hates Pitbull's brand of stupidity, and Ke$ha tends to be a polarizing artist for Todd.
- "Crazy Kids": To add to the above, while Todd likes the more refined Ke$ha, this isn't a particularly "crazy" dance song, and some versions have the horrible addition of a will.i.am guest verse, sounding almost exactly as he does on "Scream and Shout."
- "Twerk": The song hasn't charted; however, it'll likely get mentioned since Todd hates Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and anyone on the Young Money label who's not Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj.
- "Chinese Food": It only charted at #29 for one week; however, it'll likely get mentioned since it was made by the same studio who made Friday.
- He did mention on Twitter that unlike Friday, in which Rebecca Black had no idea what she was getting into, Alison Gold made the song bad on purpose, attempting to become the next Rebecca Black.
- "I Knew You Were Trouble": Mentioned in the "We Are Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back Together" review that it was the worst Taylor Swift song he had ever heard.
- "Everybody's Got Somebody but Me": Both Hunter Hayes and Jason Mraz have made appearances on previous "Worst of" lists, the former with "Wanted" in 2012 and the latter with "I'm Yours" in 2009, so a collaboration between the two will not likely sit well with Todd.
- "Just Give Me A Reason": Called it out as being boring in the "Feel This Moment" review and called it "unmemorable" in a tweet. Like "Holy Grail", he'll declare it extra-disappointing as it comes from two people who normally have talent. Additionally, Marc Mues loves it, and the two of them tend to have very opposite tastes in pop, so whatever Mues loves, it's likely Todd will hate.
- "Scream and Shout": Even though it's already on the "Worst of 2012" list, Todd contemplated on putting it on the "Worst of 2013" list to emphasize how bad it is.
- "Cups (When I'm Gone)": Todd made several tweets expressing his extreme dislike for Pitch Perfect, comparing it to Glee, a show he does not like. This may hurt his opinion on the song itself, as while he can find songs he likes in movies he doesn't like (ie Dirty Dancing with "Time of My Life"), he does not tend to like music similar to Glee.
- "Let Her Go": Todd made a few tweets expressing his dislike for the song, calling it a "laughingly bad attempt at songwriting" and even saying that it was "making a late case for being included on the annual worst list".
- "Marry Me": Todd very much doesn't like Jason Derulo, especially in songs in which Derulo overuses his vocals and adds incredibly obvious autotune.
- "Demons": His review called it a terrible, boring sell-out song. In the review and on Twitter, Todd calls Imagine Dragons a musical draft bust, having high hopes for the band, but they end up sorely disappointing.
- "Heart Attack": Todd may add it solely for the first 10 seconds, similar to the inclusion of Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam's "Head to Toe" on the "Worst of 1987" list. He also called it unmemorable in a tweet.
- "Thrift Shop"
- "Get Lucky"
- All but confirmed by his adoration of it in the "Blurred Lines" review.
- As well as several adoring mentions on Twitter.
- "Suit and Tie"
- "Can't Hold Us": Maybe more likely than "Thrift Shop", which he seemed to like more as a statement than as a song.
- "Treasure": All but confirmed by his admiration for it in the "Blurred Lines" review, as well as his admiration for it on Twitter.
- "I Love It (I Don't Care)", if only because of the pun he could make in the introduction: "Some people might not like this song. But I don't care. ...I love it." (Cue riff)
- "Same Love": Mentioned liking it in his 2013 VM As review. That being said, he wasn't exactly crazy about it, saying it didn't have incredibly strong rhymes, so it might make his honorable mentions. Again, possibly more as a statement than a song.
- "Royals": Todd has a track record of loving indie sounding songs.
- He's mentioned it positively on Twitter, comparing it to Thrift Shop.
- Perhaps "Best Song Ever" will make it on the list. And he will feel even more humiliated than he did in the review.
- "Carry On": Back in the "We Are Young"/"Somebody That I Used to Know" review, he mentioned that he really enjoyed the other fun. songs he listened too.
- "Hold On, We're Goin' Home" - Todd likes Drake, especially in songs in which Drake doesn't brag. However, it's somewhat similar to "Find Your Love", which may not impress Todd (as much or otherwise).
- Probably not, as he mentioned on Twitter that, while he normally likes Drake's attempts at R&B, this song kind of annoys him. While he stated in the "Wrecking Ball" review that he'd rather be annoyed than bored, that does not necessarily mean that that's good enough to be put on his "best of" list.
- "Gone": He will comment that he's technically not breaking his rules since it did chart, even if the song is eight years old and charted from a viral video.
- Why not include "Livin' on a Prayer" then? It reached #25 solely based on hits.
- "Trouble Maker": Followed by him apologizing that Flo Rida made his list again, even if just as a featured artist.
- "The Fox": Like Gangnam Style, it will grow on him.
- "Survival": Eminem and rock music? Sounds like Todd will love it.
- "Clarity": He'll say it did right what Titanium got wrong. It's also comparable to "Just Dance" and "DJ Got Us Falling In Love"
- He's mentioned Zedd is boring EDM, so it's doubtful.
- Actually, the song he was referring to was "Stay the Night", his opinion of Clarity is not known.
- "The Way" or "Baby I": His joking about Nickelodeon child stars has to be building up to something.
- "Applause": He enjoys it for its high energy in an otherwise boring pop landscape; however, the song's narcissistic tone will likely keep it off the "Best of 2013" list, and Todd typically doesn't care for Lady Gaga's more surreal music videos.
- "Safe and Sound": Todd has a history of liking indie rock songs that make the pop charts.
- "Say Something": Todd might like a song where Christina Aguilera doesn't oversing, if he doesn't find it boring which is a possibility.
- "Brave": If Todd doesn't dismiss the song as boring, he'll say Sara Bareilles did everything right on "Brave" whereas Katy Perry got everything wrong on "Roar".
- "Counting Stars": His review called it good, as well as exciting. Todd also mentions that this song got One Republic off his shit list. Maybe not enough to make the list, but it has a fair shot.
Todd will review Best Song Ever
And it'll be snarktastic.
- Confirmed. And as much as he wanted to rip it a new one, HE LIKES IT!
Berzerk will on either his Worst or Best of 2013
He either loves or hates Eminem
And accidentally reveal that he loves Victorious
- Seeing as how Ariana's album hit #1 in the country in only 6 days to a week after its release, I think it's high time that he does so. Plus, after his gushing on the Nickelodeon stars and shows the past few times he's reviewed Disney stars, I think it would make sense if he went into detail, much to his disagreement.
Todd will declare 2013 the worst year (or at the very least, the most boring) of his reviewing career.
In many of his pop song reviews of 2013, he notes that several songs in Billboard's Top 100 are easy listening ballads or electronic dance music. Todd hates both genres for being boring and emotionless, which makes them hard to review. Some songs singled out include P!nk
and Nate Ruess
' "Just Give Me a Reason", Selena Gomez
' "Come and Get It", and Katy Perry
's "Roar". Todd could probably make a Top 30
for the Worst of 2013, and he still
would have to make some painful cuts.
- From Todd's Twitter: "'Wrecking Ball' replaces 'Roar' as the number one song in the country. My god, this has been a shit year for pop."
Todd's face is nothing special, which is why he keeps it hidden.
Todd is Genre Savvy
to know that an aura of mystery would add to his popularity, so he decided to craft the appearance of a mysterious man who women would flock to solve
and men would try desperately to figure out who he is.
Todd in the Shadows has probably written down some WMGs to add to the mystery, or he just thought it amusing.
The reason why people freak out when they see him is because their standards about his mystery have been raised incredibly high. The fact that Mechakara didn't freak out when performing "surgery
" is because he couldn't even begin to care about what a human looks like-they're all the same soggy haggis anyway.
