  • Canada, Eh?: Itís a Running Gag that Matt is Canadian.
  • Canadian Equals Hockey Fan: He once joked that if a robber walked into a Canadian's house, the homeowner would probably offer the robber a beer and ask them to stay and watch the Toronto Maple Leafs game with them.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: In a Q&A video, someone asked him who he thought the hottest female was. He said Kate Upton, and to prove it, he played a clip of Kate Upton dancing in lingerie, which he stared at for a few seconds before regaining focus.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: In his video about the hacker group Anonymous, if you pause it at various points, you can see Matt wearing the Guy Fawkes mask worn by the members of Anonymous.
  • Male Gaze: When asked in a Q&A video who he thought the hottest female was, Matt said Kate Upton, and to prove it, he played a clip of Kate Upton dancing in lingerie. This distracted Matt for a few seconds before he regained focus.

  • Running Gag: Matt being bald.
  • Self-Deprecation: Matt sometimes makes fun of himself for being bald, and being short.
  • The Stinger: When he does this, he thanks the viewer for watching the video, tells them to subscribe if they enjoyed the content, and tells them about his other internet accounts.
  • Take That: He made a video about Sarah Palin using her own made-up word "refudiate" in a Tweet, which was then recognized in the Oxford Dictionary. In the video, he said that Sarah Palin should be the last person to create a word, because she's so stupid. note 
  • That's What She Said: Upon getting a thick envelope in Mail with Matt #3, he said, "This is thick... this is thick! That's what she said.".

Well, allow me to explain it for you!". note
