Web Video: Jacksfilms
Greetings, BICHES.
"Nailed it."

Jack Douglass is an American filmmaker, comedian, and musician, who runs the YouTube channel Jacksfilms, on which he posts parodies of just about anything. He also has a long-running (2 1/2 years and over 60 episodes as of December 2013) series called Your Grammar Sucks, where he reads aloud grammatically-painful and typo-laden comments left on YouTube and Facebook. He is attempting to "clean up the world"—or at least the internet—one comment at a time. He has two other shows: PMS (Parodies, Music videos and Sketches) and JackAsk, a sarcastic Q&A show.

  • YGS premieres every Friday
  • PMS premieres every Monday.
  • JackAsk premieres every Wednesday.

As of April 2014, he has started a fourth show called GamerGod88 that had originally released an episode every day. It has its own page here.

Here's his main YouTube channel, where his skits are posted. He also has a vlog channel, a secret channel, and two old, unused behind-the-scenes channels.


Examples of tropes in Jacksfilms videos:

Tropes that apply to Jack Douglass

  • Adorkable
  • Alter Ego Acting: As Chad "Broseph" Huntington, the backwards-cap double-popped-collar-wearing drinkin' fool.
    • Not to mention Dennis.
  • Berserk Button:
    • 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 Ray William Johnson, 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.
  • Carpet of Virility: Enough to shave into a Nolan!Batman symbol!
  • Deadpan Snarker
    • Even more so in his JackAsk videos.
  • Epic Fail: 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.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Compare Jack here or in any of his own sketches to his clean-suited Intern 2 character on My Music.
  • Kubrick Stare: Jack's signature "creeper face" (see picture above) is essentially this combined with a Slasher Smile.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: On screen, Jack plays up the act of being a pompous dick. Off screen, he's a friendly, humble, and approachable guy.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Jack's new puppy, Klondike. She's an adorable American Eskimo dog that regularly falls asleep in Jack's arms.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With 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.
