->''"Nailed it."''

''So, yesterday I asked you, "Can you [[DescribeTopicHere describe Jacksfilms here?]]"''

''Here are your best answers.''

Jack Douglass is an American filmmaker, comedian, and musician, who runs the YouTube channel '''Jacksfilms''', which has become the home of several of his series. His best-known series is a weekly LongRunner called ''Your Grammar Sucks'', where he reads aloud grammatically-painful and typo-laden comments left on YouTube and {{Facebook}}. His other shows include:
* ''PMS'' ([[FunWithAcronyms Parodies, Music videos and Sketches]]), which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* ''[=JackAsk=]'', a sarcastic Q&A show
* ''WebVideo/{{GamerGod88}}'', an occasional series of fake LetsPlay videos
* ''Yesterday I Asked You'' (''YIAY''), a daily show originally from Jack's second channel and based on the eponymous section originating from ''[=JackAsk=]''

As of early 2015, YGS is rapidly approaching its hundredth, and final, episode. It is unknown what, if anything, it will be replaced by.

His current upload schedule is as follows:
* ''YIAY'' premieres daily.
* ''PMS''[[labelnote:*]]'''P'''arody, '''M'''usic video, '''S'''ketch[[/labelnote]] premieres every Monday.
* ''[=JackAsk=]'' premieres every Wednesday.
* ''Your Grammar Sucks'' premieres every Friday.

Jack has also starred as Intern 2, one of the main characters on the web series ''WebVideo/{{MyMusic}}''. His main YouTube channel can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/jacksfilms here]], along with his [[http://www.youtube.com/user/jackisanerd second channel]], and two old, unused [[http://www.youtube.com/user/shutupdennis behind-the-scenes]] [[http://www.youtube.com/user/featuredfridays channels]].

His (parodic) channel trailer can be watched [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKs5k9KB63g here]], and a slightly-outdated one [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnhZgSDV1sQ here]].

Each Wednesday, he does a [[http://www.younow.com/jacksfilms YouNow livestream]] of himself recording videos and more often than not answering questions.
----
!!Examples of tropes in Jacksfilms videos:
* AdamWesting: In "50 Facts You Can't Even", WebVideo/MatthewSantoro stars {{as himself}}, parodying his own "50 Amazing Facts To Blow Your Mind" videos.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Implied to unbearable extents in "Strokemeister" and its follow-up "Wiggledix".
-->'''Jack''': It has no batteries, [[DoubleEntendre so you'll do all the stroking yourself]].
** 1-800-HHHHHNNNNNNNGGGGGG
* AffectionateParody: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmwme8DtAFY His parody]] of Series/{{Sherlock}} gained some controversy from viewers who thought he was disrespecting the series. Jack replied that it was "a parody FROM a fan TO the fans", and that making a parody couldn't pay it any higher praise.
* AlcoholInducedIdiocy: Chad's antics make frat boys look positively like teetotalers by comparison.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[invoked]] His interpretation of [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit the Frog]] in the Kermit animations.
* AmbiguouslyEvil
* {{Angrish}}: Those comments in [[CapsLock ALL CAPS]] in ''Your Grammar Sucks''.
* AudienceParticipation:
** A Jacksfilms first, YGS #50 and #60 include fan submissions.
** Not to mention most (if not all) of YGS' material comes from user-submitted comment screencaps.
** Jackask, where all the questions come directly from fans.
** YIAY (Yesterday I Asked You) where he asks his fans, called biches, certain questions and features the best and funniest of their answers in his videos.
* AutoTune {{Jesus}}
* BassoProfundo: Once [[ItMakesSenseInContext Justin Bieber hits puberty]]. Becomes [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]] when he hits super puberty.[[note]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuiNcI2RMTk From this video]][[/note]]
* BilingualBonus: The YGS comments in Spanish and Portuguese, which he'll read in a hokey Latin accent, while pronouncing laughter ("jajaja") with the English J.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick:
** His list of curse words in ''[=JackAsk=] #8''.
-->DANGIT
-->DANGUS
-->DANG
-->DARN
-->DERN
-->GOAT-FUCKER
** From "#[=ChristmasMiracle=]", ''"We'll cuddle by the Christmas tree/[[spoiler:Doesn't matter if you're not 18!]]"''
** In "Christmas is my favourite freaking holiday", the songs becomes intentionally offensive[[note]]Intentionally so because it is being sung to Sean, a jew[[/note]], but then...
-->''Christmas is my favourite freaking holiday!''\\
''It's not like any other freaking holiday!''\\
''[[MoodWhiplash If you don't like Christmas, you're probably a jew]]''\\
''[[CrossesTheLineTwice And I don't want nothing to do with you]]''\\
''Bum bum, bum bum, bum bum ba-dum bum bum''
** The list of songs in ''Disney/{{Frozen}} 2'':
-->I Love Rock and Roll\\
Rolling Stones\\
Pebble For Your Thoughts\\
Elsa's Dead Parents
** One answer for THE MEANING OF LIFE (in four words):
-->Live, laugh, love, arson
* BrokenRecord: The candy cane song ("''stab x16''"). Even more so when he re-sang the song in a promo video for his [=YouNow=] chat that he was doing that day, when the aforementioned "stab" part is looped extensively to the point where people in the comments report hearing an entirely new word.
* ButtMonkey:
** Kristen. Even retroactively, in YGS #48 when the line "i thinking now on my girlfriend" brings up a picture of ''Jack himself in drag'' rather than Kristen. Although this is justified by them having broken up by then.
** Thanks to the fan submissions, Olga Kay. [[RunningGag OH OLGA]].
** Billy in the Kermit animations, whom Kermit picks on more than any of the other students.
* CallBack:
** In "Scary Stories with Kermit", Kermit uses the line "shut up, sh-shut up," in reference to ''WebVideo/GamerGod88''[='=]s first Dark Souls 2 video.
** For a ''YIAY'' thumbnail for a video about the best place to hide a body, Jack re-donned the ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' getup that he had worn four years prior in a ''Dexter'' parody sketch.
* CatchPhrase:
** Since [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsecDcTpVmw Your Grammar Sucks #1]], he's used the word "biches" to refer to his fans. In fact, a lot of his Catch Phrases originated from [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA6687CF25DE17420 Your Grammar Sucks.]] Quite a few of them also double as RunningGags.
** "That's almost a hundred..."[[labelnote:Explanation:]] At various points throughout YGS' history, he's said something along the lines of "Episode X? That's almost a hundred!"[[/labelnote]]
*** Becomes an IronicEcho when Jack does it in YGS '''#99'''.
** ":a what a fucke?!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Ever since [[http://youtu.be/el5rMq0TMUM?t=39s this]] entry from episode 21, he's used this sound bit/video clip/quote whenever he comes across a particularly baffling comment. [[http://youtu.be/IDmz7K385Qw?t=16m43s Behold,]] [[http://youtu.be/DS_zQw61PQE?t=11m22s all of them.]][[/labelnote]]
** "Oh, Olga!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fellow [=YouTuber=]/IRL friend Olga Kay, of Russian descent, has some trouble with the english language in written form (she's fluent in speech) despite having lived here for quite a few years, and Jack features one of her comments every once in a while in an episode of YGS, followed by him exclaiming "Oh, Olga!"[[/labelnote]]
** "Nailed it."
** "Help me clean up YouTube! If you see an amazingly bad comment on the Internet, take a screencap of it and send it my way either via Twitter or my Facebook fanpage." [[labelnote:Explanation]] His plug at the end of every episode for sending him possible YGS entries. He eventually turned it into a jingle.[[/labelnote]]
** "Let me know if I nailed it or failed it."
** "Cool cool" has become one as of late, mainly through ''YIAY''.
** Nowadays he ends episodes of ''YIAY'' with "Godspeed."
* CarpetOfVirility: Despite his boyish face, he has a surprisingly hairy chest.
* ClipShow: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDmz7K385Qw The Best Of Your Grammar Sucks special.]] And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DS_zQw61PQE the second one.]] And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-N2XKqapug the third one.]]
* ClothingDamage: With some of the angry comments, he'll rip his shirt.
* ClusterFBomb[=/=]ClusterBleepBomb: When Justin Bieber searches up puberty and then [[ItMakesSenseInContext super puberty]] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuiNcI2RMTk this video]].
* {{Corpsing}}: Sometimes in ''Your Grammar Sucks''; see DrinkingGame below.
* DarkReprise: Not dark, but melancholy. At the end of YGS #99, the penultimate episode (and the final musical number) of the series, Jack sings a very ballad-y reprise of the series's outro jingle. [[TearJerker It hits HARD.]]
* DisappearedDad: Referenced in Jackask #38, where most of the answers to his Twitter question (what do you want for Christmas?) are along the lines of "a dad"/"my dad to come home".
-->'''Jack''': So I asked you all on Twitter, "what do you want for Christmas?" Here are your best answers: "a dad", "A dad", "a dad", "a dad", "your Mum.", "my dad", "My dad to come back", "my dad to come back", "my dad to come back from the store"-''aw'', is that what he told you?-, "[[WellDoneSonGuy my dad to finally call me son]]". [[BlackComedy Dark.]]
** Gets a CallBack in the following week's PMS, "9 New Christmas Songs".
--->"Christmas Dad": ''(singing):'' I wish I had a dad for Christmas... ''[{{Beat}}] (talking over the backing track):'' He told me he was going to the store... ''[{{Beat}}]'' I don't think he did.
** And in "Top 10 Top 10 Lists'", when one of the "top 10 words from 2014 that should stay in 2014" is 'dad', and Jack adding "dads aren't even real".
* DrinkingGame: Exclusive to the 'Chad' episodes of ''Your Grammar Sucks'', where Chad has to knock one back every time he corpses or otherwise flubs the reading.
* DudeNotFunny: {{In-universe}}; Jack's reaction to serious comments in ''YIAY'' will actually be more of a [[InvertedTrope "dude, not UNfunny"]] sort of thing, since Jack will seem very shocked by the comment and might even tell the commenter to calm down, stating that ''YIAY'' is a ''comedy'' show.
* DullSurprise: Jack gives a major announcement at the end of Jackask #24, but only gives it a single sentence at the end of the video.
--> '''Jack''': New "Your Grammar Sucks" every Friday, and a new "PMS" every Monday. WebVideo/{{GamerGod88}} is coming back every Saturday, ''[Jack cringes]'' Oh God.
* EntitledToHaveYou: The (parodied) message of "Dubstep Solves Everything 3" is that, because Jack wins a fight over the girl, he gets to have her, regardless of her wishes.
* FamousLastWords: A slew of them in the [[CaptainObvious "perfect last words"]] episode of ''YIAY''.
* FlippingTheBird: At the end of his first ''[=JackAsk=]''.
* FunWithAcronyms:
** The mainline content is classified as ''P''arody, ''M''usic Videos and ''S''ketches. What's the grab-all term for them? '''PMS'''.
** His advertisements at the end of the Jackask videos (and some PMS episodes) use this as a RunningGag, making a company's name (most commonly Audible's) into an acronym. Finally lampshaded and defied in #38:
--->'''Jack''': "Audible" stands for... nothing. Because it's not an acronym, it's the name of a cool company that has thousands of audiobooks from which to choose from, ''it's not that hard to get!''
* FunnyForeigner: Olga Kay. "Oh, ''Olga!''"
** This also applies to a few of the other comments, as a few of them offhandedly mention their not being an English speaker.
* GodwinsLaw [=/=] HitlerAteSugar: "You know who else liked pants? ''Hitler."''
* GrammarNazi: He admits it comes from having studied English.
* GrandFinale: YGS #60 is played up to be this, [[BaitAndSwitch but it ends up being averted]]. However, YGS #100 actually will be the finale of the series, and its been said for quite a while that it'll be the biggest of them all.
* GutturalGrowler: Chad "Broseph" Huntington.
* HurricaneOfPuns: This instance from "Strokemeister" combines this trope with AccentUponTheWrongSyllable.
-->'''Chad''': Hey America! Wanna look ''ab''tastic? Then quit choking down the cheeseburgers and start stroking your way to an ''ab''normally ''ab''stract ''ab''yss. You wanna know my ''ab''pinion? Check yourself into reh''ab'' if you don't h''ab''pen to get the re''ab''tions you want!
** UpToEleven in "WTF Blanket 3: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Awful Pun Overload]]".
* HypocriticalHumor: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a6bS6s2UUo This video]].
* ImAHumanitarian: In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmwme8DtAFY Sherlock parody]], Sherlock sees a dab of ketchup on Watson's mouth, a half-eaten burger, and a bottle of ketchup. What does he assume? [[spoiler:Watson killed and cooked someone into that burger.]]
* IncrediblyLamePun: "If you liked the Strokemeister, you'll ''throb''ably like WIGGLEDIX."
* IncrediblyLongNote: From one of his ''[=JackAsk=]'' videos: [[Disney/{{Frozen}} "Do you wanna build a snowmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa--"]]
* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle:
** In 2008, there was a video made in which two Jacks played pool against each other. What did he decide to name the video? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2TJ1ABXt1I "Playing]] [[ADateWithRosiePalms with]] [[{{Pun}} Myself".]]
** In 2014, he released a video titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dQBTdUlT18 "50 Amazing Facts that will Blow You]][[labelnote:note]]away"[[/labelnote]].
* ItMakesSenseInContext: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiM8HRefY3k Invoked]] by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujzfv5Mg47c any]] sketch episode, by attempting to build context for the horrific comments in sketch style. The result is a {{homage}} to RobotChicken or AMVHell.
** [[http://youtu.be/el5rMq0TMUM?t=39shttp://youtu.be/el5rMq0TMUM?t=39s The "A what a fucke?"]] comments would probably make more sense if we knew where they came from, but since Jack receives submissions as screencaps, he himself probably doesn't know.
* JumpScare: At the end of "'LYMPIC GAMES, 'LYMPIC GAMES", Jack runs into his green screen and it suddenly cuts to his bloody face screaming at the viewer.
* TheLancer: Cyr. Sean Klitzner, Roomie, Tobuscus, Olga, and Erin have all have filled in this role as well depending on the particular video.
* LargeHam: At points.
* [[LongSpeechTeatime Long Note Teatime]]: Towards the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXtXHkgalwM the Valentine's Day song]]. It's not even that long.
* MadnessMantra: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SabcO9j09GE THEY'RE ALL PEWDIEPIE.]]
* TheMerch: [[FunTShirt Jacksfilms t-shirts,]] which make it into the videos.
* MoodWhiplash[=/=]{{Bathos}}: Jack often uses these tropes to comedic effect (often overlapping with BreadEggsMilkSquick, see above):
** In ''YGS'':
*** [[http://youtu.be/fyKxp5e9Lf4?t=2m53s This]] expletive-filled, ranting YGS entry inexplicably ends with the words "I like that", and Jack reads it accordingly.
*** YGS #88's final comment has this, lampshaded by Jack:
--->'''Jack''': "It's pretty bad that people wait an entire year before bringing something special back up. I'm not only talking about 9/11 but also Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentines day... You have 365 days to tell your parents you love them. You have 365 days to tell your significant other you love them and appreciate them. And you all have 365 days to remember 9/11... So why do you only choose one day out of the year to remember? I'm sorry but it seems to me that [[spoiler:some people use it as an excuse to be more racist than normal.]]" ''Where did that come from?!''
** In ''PMS'':
*** "YouTube Is Not a Job" has Jack defending his channel as a legitimate career choice to his family before they agree to watch a video of his to convince them that he does more than just "make cat videos". Cue Jack's supposed latest video, [[spoiler:"Top Ten Farts"]].
*** Used near-constantly in the Kermit animations.
--->'''Kermit''': ''Ghosts aren't real, but my lust for blood is.''
*** From "9 New Christmas Songs": ''Candy canes, candy canes, lick 'em in a spear and kill your enemies! Stab (x16)-'', and later, when ending the video:
--->'''Jack''': They sound like Christmas songs you know, but they're not, it's all an illusion, life isn't real, happy boxing day!
*** "Top 10 Top 10 Lists" has a few instances of this: 'Top 10 Songs' is comprised mostly of (both real and fictitious) pop songs from modern artists, before abruptly ending with #1 being [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX "At Zanarkand" by Nobuo Uematsu]]. 'Top 10 Shades of Grey' ends with #1 being "my soul". And probably the biggest use comes from 'Top 10 words from 2014 that should stay in 2014', when the background music even cuts out when Jack reveals the number one word to be [[spoiler:'ebola']].
--->'''Jack''': And the number one word from 2014 that should stay in 2014... [[spoiler:'ebola']].
** Jack uses this trope in almost every episode of ''YIAY'', ending with a somewhat thoughtful comment, immediately followed by a joke one.
*** However, he now just ends the video on the serious comment, although this trope is still in play.
* MrFanservice: The pictures of Jack post P90 weight-loss shown in the advertisements.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: ''Dubstep Solves Everything''.
* MyEyesAreUpHere: Said by Chad in ''Get Pumped with Chad'' after the camera focuses on his pecs.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: Implied in "9 New Christmas Songs".
-->''Stab (x16)''
* NostalgiaFilter: YGS #99 is Jack singing a medley of all of the previous YGS songs (it will be the final song of the series), and it serves as a huge throwback.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The end of the December 7th episode of ''News In Haikus'' ("Relax about Franchise/StarWars") has a severe case of MoodWhiplash when Jack brings up the fact that Eric Garner's killer, a police officer that strangled him, isn't even being trialled despite it being viewed on camera. Unlike the other haikus, this was ''not'' PlayedForLaughs.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Jack has trouble staying in-character in YGS #84, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp5d3wzZraw and for good reason]].
* OverlyLongGag: The first ''[=JackAsk=]'' in its entirety only consists of one question: "Are you gay?"
** Similarly, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrpJQEXY0mI "JACKASK #23"]] consists entirely of people criticizing his [[PornStache mustache]].
* PaintedOnPants: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a8v6kTWt7s No, really.]]
* {{Parody}}: ''Many''.
** Boybands are a recurring thing - "Christmas Sex" is a style parody of the BackstreetBoys, and a OneDirection spoof called "Paperbag" has been done.
** And of course, there are his ever-present {{infomercial}} parodies.
** ''And'' his series of {{Literature/Twilight}} "in a minute" videos.
** And whenever a new Apple product is announced, expect a Jacksfilms parody soon afterward.
** There's also the series of parody commercials for the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h05ZQ7WHw8Y Snuggie]].
* PetTheDog: Some of the Your Grammar Sucks comments earn a SlowClap from Jack.
* PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel: Inverted in "WTF is Jacksfilms":
-->SUBSCRIBE TO LetsPlay/{{PEWDIEPIE}} INSTEAD
* PoesLaw: Inverted. At least one intentionally bad comment has gotten onto Your Grammar Sucks.
* PornStache: Jack sported one nowadays that has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrpJQEXY0mI received plenty of speculation]], but it has since come off.
* PreciousPuppy: The 59th episode of Your Grammar Sucks, featuring Jack's new puppy, Klondike.
* PrecisionFStrike: "What is dubstep?" "That's a good '''''FUCKING''''' question!"
* [[RecurringRiff Recurring Riff/Song/Rap/Thing?]]: [[SuperBowl Super Bowl. Super Bowl. Gotta have me my Super Bowl]]...or [[OlympicGames 'Lympic Games]].
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Obviously parodied quite a lot in Your Grammar Sucks and some of his PMS videos. For example...
** [[http://youtu.be/fyKxp5e9Lf4?t=1m6s Mixing up "Gentle" and Genital"]] (whoopsie daisy).
** A double offender: "[[http://youtu.be/R7HcBngM4Ko?t=5s This is Evan worse then 9/11]]".
** Jack reading comments that have "defiantly" in place of "definitely" [[http://youtu.be/DS_zQw61PQE?t=18m12s is fairly common,]] and it's become a RunningGag for Jack to use the [[UpperClassTwit Sophisticated Man voice]] whenever he comes across one with it in it.
*** Similarly for whenever [[http://youtu.be/IDmz7K385Qw?t=2m32s somebody mistakes "Collage" for "College".]]
** The infamous [[http://youtu.be/DS_zQw61PQE?t=14m33s Rapping/Raping Rapper/Raper]] thing.
*** Jack had to make [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NARxgXEdlzs a damn song]] out of it.
** And many, many more, throughout practically every episode of YGS.
** "Top 10 Top 10 Lists" features Jack (intentionally) misreading ''Film/AirBuddies'' as ''Film/AirBud Dies''.
* RunningGag: Quite a few.
** UpperClassTwit, Creator/ChristopherWalken and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger impressions in ''Your Grammar Sucks''.
** Reusing the [[ItMakesSenseInContext ":a what a fucke?!"]] soundbyte for the comments that defy more logic than usual.
** The whole [[FreudianSlip "rapping vs. raping"]] thing, which [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLfhizLZi7c earns a lampshade]] in the YGS ChristmasSpecial.
** Starting around episode 32, he's been including at least one [[{{Twitter}} tweet]] from fellow [=YouTuber=] Olga Kay in every few episodes of YGS, followed by an exclamation of "OH, OLGA". He even managed to fit it into the ChristmasSpecial, which is a ''song''.
** "Whoopsie Daisy", used as a reaction to comments that are mostly grammatically correct but have a single, huge mistake (for example, confusing the words gentle and genital).
** At the end of some videos (before Jack moved to L.A.), Jack's (former) girlfriend Kristen will be there with him, apparently to talk about upcoming videos...but every time, he tells her to shut up as soon as she opens her mouth, leaving her standing there awkwardly.
** [[BigShutUp SHUT UP, DENNIS]]
** "Poor Brian" [[http://youtu.be/nz3UZWq49uk?t=6m5s from episode 51]], whenever somebody makes the mistake of spelling "brain" as "Brian".
** GERARD ''ALWAYS'' APPROVES.
** A sarcastic "OOOOOOOOOOOOH!" to insults that really [[InsultBackfire don't deserve to get one]], originally done by Cyr and sometimes by Jack.
*** More recently, this seems to have been replaced by "REKT U M8".
** In [=JackAsk=], getting asked in various ways if he is gay.
** At the end of some of his videos, someone will say [[CurseCutShort "MOTHERFU--"]] before it cuts to his ending logo.
** Jack coughing/vomiting up blood or liquid. In the middle of a sentence.
** "That's almost a hundred."
** Acrostic poems, usually seen during the sponsor adverts at the end of Jackask episodes, as well as in the Apple Watch parody.
** Kermit's specific abuse of a kid he calls Billy (even though that's not even his real name).
** "Waiting until marriage," "A light switch,"[[labelnote:explanation]]Started with the "what turns you on?" episode, when an influx of people gave the inevitable response. Jack added fuel to the fire when he made a "what turns you ''off''?" episode, and the phrase more often than not shows up, usually through hidden messages.[[/labelnote]] and Jaden Smith-esque responses seem to come up a lot in the ''YIAY'' responses.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Jack's reaction to how the last comment got 214 likes in ''Your Grammar Sucks #43''.
* SelfDeprecation: When Olga Kay showed up in person in YGS #40.
** In his "acceptance speech" ''YIAY'' episode, one commenter stated that they would thank Jacksgap for being the only successful Youtuber named Jack. Jack himself then disproves this...by stating that there's also LetsPlay/JackSepticEye.
* SerialEscalation: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC9OX4pfjjE YGS #60]]. Despite being just 10 eps after #50, they crank the guest stars and the fan submissions UpToEleven.
* SherlockScan: Parodied in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmwme8DtAFY Sherlock parody]], where Sherlock assumes that Watson [[spoiler:killed someone and cooked them into the burger that he was eating.]]
* ShirtlessScene: Several, and done with an open shirt in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGvv_gKZaMs "Paper Bag"]] (though he sadly shaved his chest to make the boy band parody work).
* SincerityMode: Jack will, in some cases, break out of character to give a serious answer to a fan question. This most commonly happens in [=JackAsk=].
* ShoutOut:
** One comment in ''Your Grammar Sucks #48'' is most certainly a reference to ''MyMusic''.
** Another one in #49 attempts to sum up ''Series/DoctorWho'', which works as well as you'd expect.
* SlasherSmile: Jack's pretty good at them, to say the least.
* SmallReferencePools: A comment in OneDirection fanspeak slipped clean past the ''Your Grammar Sucks'' radar.
** As did a Film/BackToTheFuture reference in YGS #12. ("I am your density.")
* SpecialGuest: Including Creator/GraceHelbig (Idol from WebVideo/MyMusic), Brock Baker, Sean Klitzner, TayZonday, {{Tobuscus}}, [[Creator/TheFineBrothers Benny and Rafi Fine]], and [[SelfDeprecation Olga Kay]].
** YGS #50 adds Jesse and Jeana of ''Prank vs Prank'', ShaneDawson, {{WebVideo/Smosh}}, [[WebVideo/MyMusic Indie]], Chester See, [=MysteryGuitarMan=] and PewDiePie!
** YGS #60 adds RhettAndLink, [[EpicMealTime Harley Morenstein]], Tyler Oakley, the couple from {{CTFxC}}, the remaining cast of ''MyMusic'' (including News Newsman!) and Jon Cozart, the "After Ever After" guy known as "Paint".
** ''50 Facts You Can't Even'', an AffectionateParody of {{WebVideo/Matthew Santoro}}'s 50 Amazing Facts videos, brings us WebVideo/MatthewSantoro himself.
** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG6LeucT_5Y Jack's "dream interpreting" episode of YIAY]], he came across a comment that described a dream where a satellite came down and crashed on someone's house. Jack gave two explanations: they had Instagram haters, or they've been watching ''Film/DonnieDarko''.
*** Another dream was that someone was a dragon who got hungry and ate their own family. Jack explained that this represented the dreamer's Music/{{appetite for destruction}}..."which is the best Music/GunsNRoses album".
* StayInTheKitchen: PlayedForLaughs at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cF7xZdE9YrY this video.]]
* StressVomit: In the "Dubstep Solves Everything" video, Jack's convulsing to his own dubstep noises makes the girl he's coming onto puke in distress and creeped-out-ness.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: They're not dance mixes, per se, but YGS #[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgSaHZD8078 10]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FK9nAqS4C2I 15]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huHVgB_TdBE 25]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbOWBUcehVs 30]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnAOuEPZ1ng 35]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLfhizLZi7c 45]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiKy18I9ONU 65]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R57wdB49oKA 75]] are all songs or PissTakeRap comprised (nearly) entirely of badly spelled comments. ''He even rhymed'' them. And believe it or not, there are a few instances where two comments in a row ''actually make sense together''.
** Sometimes done on a case-by-case basis for single comments in the regular YGS run, generally involving SelfBackingVocalist.
* TakeThat:
** A ''merciless'' one [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE6AccjLG1s here.]]
** From ''Bro 90 X'':
-->'''Chad''': You'll lose pounds faster than BP is losing credibility.
-->(topical burn)
** In his [[WebVideo/VSauce Vsauce]] parody, he discusses a unit of measurement in music that our bodies reject once we listen to it. He calls the unit "biebs".
*** He also says that Nickelback songs have many, many biebs, and that is why people who listen to them feel like committing suicide.
** In one of his ''[=JackAsk=]'' videos, he says that everyone has listened to Linkin Park at some time in their life, but then something clicks in their mind and they say, "Wow. What the fuck am I doing?"
** His video, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsTRTzN0MH8 I NEED TO HOST =3]]. "But what if it were funny?"
** To homophobic people in general.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEFlMz2huNk&list=UUPcFg7aBbaVzXoIKSNqwaww This episode]] of [=JackAsk=] has a particularly sharp dig at Sam Pepper, a [=YouTuber=] presently being investigated for sexual abuse. Subsequent episodes also took sharp digs at him.
* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4Kenluneho His ballad-esque cover of Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy With It"]].
* VomitDiscretionShot: Implied in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL7RpV_-1YY Your Grammar Sucks #31]]'' as Chad, where the scene quickly cuts to him holding a bucket, shortly after declaring that he may or may not need it.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: At the end of "DUBSTEP SOLVES EVERYTHING".
** A running gag in ''[=JackAsk=]''.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Chad, more often than not.
* AWildRapperAppears: {{Tobuscus}} in "Take Off Your Clothes (Like Creator/ScarlettJohansson)".
** Jack himself for YGS #45, except it starts before the midpoint of the video and pretty much takes over.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljWcpj8N6ws Literally]]"

!!Tropes that apply to Jack Douglass
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlterEgoActing: As Chad "Broseph" Huntington, the backwards-cap double-popped-collar-wearing drinkin' fool.
** Not to mention Dennis.
* BerserkButton:
** Jack tends to react badly when particularly bad comments get a high amount of likes. It's taken to its logical conclusion in YGS 57, where his reaction to a particularly bad comment getting an absurd amount of likes is to angrily lunge at the camera.
** He is also not a fan of WebVideo/RayWilliamJohnson, although he has made it clear that he respects Ray's ability to get people such as Robin Williams into his videos, and would also try to keep conversation polite despite not liking his work.
** One recently unearthed by ''[=JackAsk=]'' is when people submit incredibly random questions in attempts to sound funny, citing the rule that "RANDOM doesn't always equal FUNNY"- especially made clear in ''[=JackAsk #10=]''.
** On a more serious note, homophobia.
* CarpetOfVirility: Enough to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2430TdH62A shave]] into a [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Nolan!Batman symbol!]]
* DeadpanSnarker
** Even more so in his ''[=JackAsk=]'' videos.
* EpicFail: He once tried to prank call Toby Turner and say that his girlfriend was pregnant, with him not knowing what to do. Toby was ''watching the livestream he was doing this on'', and Jack didn't bother checking to see if he could.
* HeCleansUpNicely: Compare Jack here or in any of his own sketches to his clean-suited Intern 2 character on ''MyMusic.''
* KubrickStare[=/=]SlasherSmile: Jack's signature "creeper face" (see picture above).
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: On screen, Jack plays up the act of being a pompous dick. Off screen, he's a friendly, humble, and approachable guy.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Jack's new puppy, Klondike. She's an adorable American Eskimo dog that regularly falls asleep in Jack's arms.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With [[{{Tobuscus}} Toby Turner]]; the two prank one another on a near constant basis, including in their respective videos. Regardless, the two are good friends and regularly collaborate. The same goes for Sean Klitzner, who has jokingly said that Jack is his archnemesis and constantly tries pranking him, and for [=OlgaKay=], although his ribbing on her is more one-sided.
