aka: Charlie Is So Cool Like
How could you not fall in love with that smile?

Welcome to the world of Charlie McDonnell, a British twenty-something, YouTube vlogger, band member of Chameleon Circuit, and the epitome of Adorkable. He can be found here.

Tropes used by charlieissocoollike:

  • Acting for Two: In addition to himself, he also plays Artie Bloch in Coming Out and Mr. Information in Fun Science: Sound.
  • Affectionate Parody: In Charlie Is Not A Unicorn, of Charlie The Unicorn. Could just be Mind Screw.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Averted; he and Bridie seem to get along quite well, though they do jokingly take the mick out of one another repeatedly.
  • Bad Bad Acting: In Cooking With Charlie.
  • Big "NO!": At the end of the Coming Out video.
  • Buffy Speak:
    All will be revealed next week, here at the charliessocoollike-web-video-show-thingie-whatever-this-is.
  • Crossover: Sometimes with nerimon (Alex Day),Web Video/ danisnotonfire, and the Vlogbrothers.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: After Mr. Information gives false information about the five senses and Charlie gives the correct information...
    Charlie: Mr. Information? Ha. More like... Miss Information. (Beat) Get it? See, I am calling him a woman, but at the same time, he gave you misinformation, so it's like a... (to Mr. Information, who he has just punched) What do you think of that.
    Mr. Information: (weakly) That's a very clever pun, Charlie.
    Charlie: Thank you.
  • Downer Ending: The song Bread ends on a rather depressing note. Parodied in Why Women Scare Me.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: Evil Charlie decides to torture Charlie by...THROWING WATER IN HIS FACE!
  • Fourth Wall Mail Slot: On occasion.
  • Halloween Episode: Scary Science.
  • Harmless Villain: "Evil" Charlie from The Other Charlie:
    Evil Charlie: Based on my personal level of evil, probably the best thing I can do at this point is, uhmm...uhh.... (loos through Evil Handbook of Evil) THROW WATER IN HIS FACE! That..that's horrible. I like that one!
  • He-Man Woman Hater: He doesn't hate women, per se, but he is terrified of them.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Many examples over the years.
    • His favorite Disney princess is Ariel and he also loves Amy Pond.
    • A lot of people, girls in particular liked his red hair.
    • He also likes Felicia Day.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation:
    • "Duet With Myself".
    • "Rhymezone" thanks the website for what he sometimes views as poor imagination, also criticising himself for his dependence on it to a small degree.
    • "A Song About a Song", where he mocks himself for not being imaginative, again, and lampshades the facts that he should really do a bridge but cuts the song short.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Formerly with Alex Day/Nerimon, as the two were once as thick as thieves. Nowadays, not so much.
  • Hollywood Dateless: Commented on (and sometimes sung about) in reference to his inability to get a date and his previous romantic failures. This could just be because he's focusing on his personal life, as hinted at in "A Song About Love". He has a girlfriend now, though.
  • Keet: Charlie is easily excited and struggles to sit still.
  • Let's Duet: He somehow manages to do this alone.
  • Madness Mantra: Parodied in one of his now-removed videos where he pretends to go mad over having barely any subscribers, continually chanting "subscribe" while playing an instrument until he passes out.
  • Nerd Glasses: His "serious glasses".
  • Nice Guy: Charlie is a friendly, polite and informative person who regularly does charity drives and PSA videos.
  • Official Couple: Charlie and youtuber/filmaker emilieofnewgloom.
  • Open-Minded Parent: Come on, not many moms would paint their sons purple or let them stuff marshmallows into their mouths until they puked.
  • Poster-Gallery Bedroom: His "Wall of Stuff", which has gone through many iterations over the years.
  • Product Placement: Accidental, and lampshaded, in Magic Mars Bars.
    "I just want to make it clear that Mars Bars aren't sponsoring me to make this video. I could've said the whole thing exactly the same with Twixes and it wouldn't have mattered, they're not paying me, I promise!"
  • Real Person Shipping: He was quite aware of the Cherimon (him and Alex Day) ship, even briefly singing "I Want to Be Mrs. Nerimon". Played for Laughs when the two were still friends.
  • Redheaded Hero: For a time, then he cut the red off since he was tired of being called "Ron Weasley".
  • Self-Backing Vocalist: Charlie produces a lot of his own music and therefore does a lot of backing vocals.
  • Significant Anagram: From the "Coming Out" video: an anagram of "Artie Bloch" is Charliebot.
  • Singer Namedrop:
    "We make a perfect Charlie...."
  • The Stinger: Quite a lot.
  • This Is a Song: A few of his songs are this:
    • “A Song About A Song”
      Welcome to this song, which I wrote all myself
      It's all about this song, which I did write
    • “The Birthday Song”
      This is a song that I wrote you for your birthday
    • “A Song About Love”
      This is a song about love!
  • Time Travel: Discussed in, well Time Travel.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Charlie has an recurring fear of moths.
  • Younger than They Look: His sister Bridie. When Charlie mentioned her turning 15, some people said things like, "Holy shit, I thought she was about 17!" or "Oh God, and I was thinking that she's hot!"
