->''"Disneyland, USA. Who doesn't love this place? It's a home away from home, for kids of all ages. A passport to worlds unknown. A tentpole of the American zeitgeist. A place I'd like to point towards when they bury my carcass. A joyous, celebratory land of--FOUR TWENTY-NINE FOR AN ORANGE JUICE? YOU BUNCH OF FUC--"''
-->-- [[EstablishingSeriesMoment The opening of the first episode]]

[[BorrowedCatchPhrase To all who come to this happy place, welcome.]] This is Some Jerk with a Camera's Wiki/TVTropes page.

''Some Jerk With A Camera'' is an [[VideoReviewShow internet reviewer]] of Ride/DisneyThemeParks (and Ride/UniversalStudios starting with season 3) and their assorted paraphernalia hosted by Tony Goldmark. His show blends park history lessons, articulate opinions, and wacky, frenetic, manic-style humor. Most bizarrely, a great deal of the live footage is "on location", meaning that he's frequently cussing it up within the confines of The Most Magical Place on Earth.

His show can be seen [[http://channelawesome.com/category/videos/producers/some-jerk-with-a-camera/ here]] on [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Channel Awesome]], [[http://geekvision.tv/channels/somejerk/ here]] on Website/{{Geekvision}}, or [[http://thatfellowinthecoat.com/somejerkcamera.php here]] on WebVideo/MrCoatAndFriends.
----
!!This series provides examples of:

* AbortedArc: Due to undisclosed circumstances, Jerk's review of The Little Mermaid Ride, promised after the Star Tours II video, was put on hold in favor of an EPCOT Retrospective. To bridge the two, Jerk starts out his retrospective about to talk about The Little Mermaid Ride, but has an encounter with [[{{Series/Dateline}} Chris Hansen]] that forces him to go on the run and end up in Florida.
* AccentuateTheNegative: Sometimes, such as with ''Disney/TheCountryBears'' and ''It's A Small World Holiday'', but just as often, Jerk is positive about the things he's reviewing.
-->'''Jerk''': Do you know why I review Disneyland? ...It's because I *love* Disneyland! I didn't want to be a hater! I wanted to show the Reviewaverse that you can be entertaining without resorting to constant negative whiny cynicism!
* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: Jerk admits [[spoiler: his old Small World parody song]] is guilty of this.
* AllDeathsFinal: One of his issues with ''Shrek 4-D'' is that it violates this rule of the ''{{Franchise/Shrek}}'' franchise. By having Lord Farquaad be the only character to come back to life, in a series where ghosts exist nowhere else, it cheapens the impact of his death. He illustrates how much this would mess with the canon of other films by joking about a ghostly [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]] ([[PunnyName Ghoston]]!) show up and harass Belle and The Prince at their wedding.
* AllJustADream: The ''Star Tours'' review was The Wire's dream within Jerk's dream within Spazz's dream within [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Heffer]]'s dream within [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Lisa]]'s dream within North's dream within Jerk's dream within [[Film/BackToTheFuture Marty McFly]]'s dream within Music/MichaelJackson's mind.
* AlterEgoActing: The Jerk is at least somewhat fictional, but he has been referred to as "Tony Goldmark", and takes credit for pre-Jerk works of Tony's.
* ArcWords: KETCHUP.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: And naturally, only the Jaywalking one has anyone acting outraged.
-->'''Jerk''': "No, look, just because your life is a lie doesn't mean you can't be happy. Just look at me! My whole life is a lie and I'm happy as a clam! I've never told anyone this but I am Nicole Simpson's real killer. Yeah. And I shot [[Music/TupacShakur Tupac]]. And [[Music/TheNotoriousBIG Biggie]]. And [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy JFK]]. And [[{{Series/Dallas}} JR Ewing]]. I escaped from Gitmo twice and I still have the tag to prove it. I- I I- *pause* I am UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. And the Zodiac Killer. And [[Film/TheUsualSuspects Keyser Söze]]. And the undercover cop in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. Uh, I started the goddamn Chicago fire. I canceled ''{{Series/Firefly}}''! I'll confess to whatever you want just please for the love of god don't bring [[Series/FamilyMatters Urkel]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext back from the dead]]."
-->'''[[WebVideo/StuffYouLike Sursum Ursa]]''': ...YOU? CANCELED? ''FIREFLY''?!? ...YOU MONSTER!!!
* AuthorAppeal: Jerk's a huge Music/WeirdAlYankovic fan, and has put at least one Weird Al reference in all of his episodes, including the time when he put Weird Al HIMSELF in his videos.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Spoofed in his review of ''Film/CaptainEO''.
* BigNo: Jerk's reaction to It's A Small World Holiday.
** Jerk's reaction to there being a mini-Step By Step crossover in the Boy Meets Disney World episode with Staci Keanan's appearance in the show '''as Dana Foster'''.
** And speaking of Step By Step, his reaction to [[spoiler: Flash taking over as Indy for the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular]] consists of several Short No's before turning into [[spoiler: an almost minute-long montage of Big No's from many films and TV shows]].
* BigWhat: Jerk's reaction to the sudden GainaxEnding twist of ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow''. So big, he's still saying it 150 years later when he's only a skeleton and [[{{Franchise/Terminator}} the Terminators have taken over Earth.]]
* BlackComedy:
** Perhaps his darkest joke is in "Thirty Years of Epcot (Part 1)", where he notes that there are no rides in the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Germany, Italy, or Japan pavilions]].
-->'''Jerk''': As a Jewish controller of the media, I hereby demand a Germany ride! (''[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Cut to him boarding a train]].'') [[note]]In the commentary for the EPCOT reviews, he notes that what would have really pushed the joke further is if he said "If you kvetch long enough, you'll finally get your Final Solution."[[/note]]
** Earlier in Part 1 he compares the Disney Corporation post-Walt's death as a chicken with its head cut off... complete with footage of a just-beheaded chicken leaping around.[[note]]Also in the commentary for the EPCOT reviews, he mentions that he was initially wary of posting that clip, until he noticed [=GameStop=] putting up ads on Blip that had stock footage of animals being eaten alive.[[/note]]
** In his teaser for his ''Captain EO'' review, he mentions the review will premiere on Sept 12 2011. 25 years after the ride opened. "There aren't [[TheWarOnTerror any other big anniversaries around that date]], are there?"
** "ABC Goes To Disney World" parodies {{Laugh Track}}s by portraying them as mindless audiences who laugh at anything... even [[Disney/TheLionKing Simba finding Mufasa dead]].
* BlackComedyRape:
** By ''It's A Small World'', to the shock and confusion of several other reviewers. (And to the utter amusement of one!)
** In the "Star Tours" video, Wire asks the Jerk to show her on an Ewok doll where the ride touched him. He throws it on the ground and yells [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization "I was probably asking for it!"]]
** Kill Bosby's appearance in the "Shrek 4D" review makes use of this due to the allegations against Bill Cosby.
* BrokenRecord: In his "ABC Goes To [=DisneyLAND=] episode":
-->"The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, The new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror..."
* BrutalHonesty: If he feels a ride has a good reason to change, he will be very clear about it, despite how fans might complain. This often includes rides based on unpopular properties being updated to popular ones.
* TheCameo: [[RBGProductions Spazzmaster]], [[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern The Wire]], and [[WebVideo/WhatWeHadToWatch Il Niege]] all make regular appearances. Other cameos have included [[WebVideo/TheBunnyPerspective Phil Buni]], [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]], WebVideo/DiamandaHagan, [[ShamefulSequels MikeJ]], Creator/CountJackula, WebVideo/TheRosenHacker, [[WebVideo/AnimatedAnalysis Stephan and Nootrac]], MikeyInsanity, and [[spoiler: not one, but TWO separate appearances by Music/WeirdAlYankovic!]]
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic has made three separate appearances on the show: the ''Back to the Future'' three-parter (bugging Jerk about following Channel Awesome's conventional running gags), the ''Haunted Mansion'' review (where Jerk tries to get him to review the movie again so he won't have to), and the Wizard World of Harry Potter review (where he questions Jerk's "Where's the Fat, Universal?" campaign).
** A montage of Channel Awesome, [=GeekVision=], and Mr. Coat contributors show off their Doc Brown impressions in the ''Back to the Future'' review.
* TheCastShowOff: The "What's This?" musical number.
** As well as his ABC Retrospective [[note]] almost [[/note]] finale, "The Freakin' ABC."
* CloudCuckooLander
* [[invoked]]CriticalResearchFailure: As Jerk reviews the ABC sitcoms that went to Disney World, he quickly finds they make some ''blatant'' errors about the park.
** The ''Full House'' episode has the Tanners meet Donald and Goofy right outside of their hotel when the costumed characters never go that far from the park.
** In ''Family Matters'', during Carl's montage of him enjoying the park, he poses for a picture with a slew of costumed characters at once, something Jerk says is next to impossible to attempt.
** In ''Step by Step'', Flash attempts to break the record for fastest time riding every Disney World ride, with his neighbor Mark helping him from the park's control room. While riding the Astro Orbiter, he's advised to not go to Alien Encounter and instead go to the Jungle Cruise because the parade is in progress. Since going to Alien Encounter from Astro Orbiter would ''not'' pass through the parade (since it doesn't go through Tomorrowland) but passing through Fantasyland to the Jungle Cruise ''would'', Jerk concludes Mark must be trying to sabotage him.
*** Later on, the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular show is delayed due to the stunt performer playing Indy being unable to perform and Flash is let in if he plays the part of Indy for a young guest who saved the ride for last. This ''infuriates'' Jerk, as the show is the most dangerous stunt show in the park and would never let a random park guest play such a central role. In reality, if the stunt performer playing Indy is unable to perform, his understudy, usually referred to as "Harrison Ford's stunt double, (understudy's name)", takes his place.
*** Earlier in the episode, J.T. and Rich blow all their money on trying to impress girls by treating them to dinner at a supposed Disney World restaurant called Pinetta's. However, Jerk finds not only is there no place at Disney World called Pinetta's, the only dining place he can find with that name ''in the world'' is in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
-->'''Jerk''': Was it this hard to find an expensive restaurant in ''Disney World?!'' The freaking churros have installment plans!
** The ''Sabrina'' episode has her and her supporting cast travel from Animal Kingdom to their hotel room four times in one episode, even though the hotel they're at (the Coronade Springs Resort) is 3 miles away from the park. ''Roseanne'' commits a similar error, as the family somehow makes it from their hotel room to Main Street USA in only 14 minutes.
** During his coverage of ''Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow'', a clip plays where Benny claims she rode the Matterhorn ride while pregnant with George. As the safety announcement played every 5 minutes during the line to the ride says, pregnant women are '''heavily''' discouraged from riding the Matterhorn.
** Jerk rips into ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'' after it claims that Disney's turkey drumsticks are actually made from emu, as given that Disney sells roughly 1.6 ''million'' turkey legs a year, it'd mean that Disney would have to breed and slaughter (or, at least, dismember) over 800,000 emus, which is more than the emu population in its native home of Australia.
** In the review of the Franchise/HarryPotter attraction at Ride/UniversalStudios Hollywood, a theme park actor acts as if Jerk's camera is some strange Muggle device even though cameras, including those that produce moving pictures, are common in the wizarding world. Though to be fair, the cameras wizards use would look very different from anything Jerk uses.
* {{Crossover}}: The review of the original ''Star Tours'', with [[RBGProductions Spazzmaster]] and [[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern The Wire]].
* CultureChopSuey: During his ''Series/FamilyMatters'' Disney World review, he wonders why Winnie-the-Pooh is dressed as a [[CanadaEh Mountie]] in the ''Italian'' Pavilion of Epcot, which then leads him to wonder why a ''British'' character is even dressing like a Canadian in the first place.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: One of his videos is entitled ''Top 11 Florida Attractions Not In California''.
* DeusExMachina: After accidentally erasing his own birth at the very end of his "It's a Small World" review, Jerk is saved by a dimensional figure called The All-Being, who transports him to an alternate universe that's exactly the same as the old one.
* DisneyAcidSequence: Several, including the end of his Star Tours review, and the beginning of part 3 of his It's A Small World review.
* EskimosArentReal:
** He doesn't accept UsefulNotes/{{France}} as a real country.
** His feet think Creator/QuentinTarantino is just a myth he made up to scare them out of seceding from his body.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: His impersonation has Michael Eisner petting his [[Disney/TheAristocats kitty]] and loving her along with asking for a [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears cartoon made of his kid's favorite candy]].
* EveryoneHasStandards:
** In part one of his Epcot retrospective, they state that Disney wouldn't make their Africa pavilion if it meant being associated with South Africa.
** Jerk refuses to make dirty jokes so soon into a review. He has standards. Fortunately Creator/BobSaget does not, and Tony shows a bunch of clips from Saget.
** The "You fool! That'll ''never'' work!" guy can't finish the sentence when it comes to a ''Franchise/StarWars'' based attraction.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Whenever there's a clip of a monkey, Some Jerk can't help but cheerfully say "Ha ha. Monkey!"
* EvilPlan: The creation of Disney's California Adventure is portrayed like this, with Michael Eisner as a ''Franchise/JamesBond'' villain, complete with an eyepatch, a German accent, fedora and a (plush toy) RightHandCat.
-->'''Michael Eisner''': Ve vant zhe tourists to schtay in ze park. Vhy do they leave ze park?
--> '''Unnamed Disney Employee''': Uh, well, uh, Mr. Eisner sir, according to the market research we've done, people leave so they can explore the rest of UsefulNotes/{{California}}!
-->'''Michael Eisner''': Then ve vill bring the rest of California, *throws cat away* HEEEEEEEERE! (''Hellfire'' from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' plays)
* {{Expy}}:
** [[Creator/BillCosby Kill Bosby]] is a particularly deranged one.
** His ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' review acknowledges that [[{{WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty}} Rick Sanchez]] is one of [[{{Franchise/BackToTheFuture}} Doc Brown]].
* ForcedMeme: Jerk will take any excuse to whip out "[[Creator/ChristopherWalken That day...]] [[TheCountryBears is TONIGHT!]]"
** In Part 3 of the ''Back To The Future: The Ride'' review, once the Delorean lands in the Ice Age, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is concerned that Jerk didn't make an allusion to the [[MemeticMutation constantly memed dialogue from]] ''Film/SuburbanCommando'' that Christopher Lloyd is known for saying. [[note]] I WAS FROZEN TODAY!! [[/note]] Luckily, it ''does'' makes an appearance later on during the "Show Us Your Doc" montage in that episode. '''BY. THREE. DOCS.''' Followed by, [[CaptainObvious of course]], a {{Disney/Frozen}} reference.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** Tony's parody songwriting past and skills are referenced in the Florida, Halloween, and Small World Part One episodes, leading up to [[spoiler: the Small World finale.]]
** In the same video, when introducing his uncle Paul, he makes a LongList of everything that Paul has complained about this trip, including the lyrics of "[[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Skipper Dan]]". Later, in the first season outtakes video, Jerk [[TheCastShowoff performs the song live]].
* FreezeFrameBonus: Frequently displays funny text for less than a second.
** In the ''Haunted Mansion'' crossover review, he actually goes to the trouble of writing stuff under a newspaper headline for a joke. First, he just pastes the Ghost Host's narration from the ride, then he makes a Creator/DonaldTrump joke, then he mocks the main character's business's name, ''then'' he [[TakeThatAudience criticizes the viewer for reading that far]], '''''then''''' he says he's [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere going to just paste the lyrics]] to the ''ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' theme song (and does before he's cut off).
* FullyAutomaticClipShow: When discussing ''The Wizarding World of Harry Potter'', he presents over a minute of footage of the word "magic" used in reference to Disneyland. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer As text fades in to inform us]], it all comes from a ''single'' vacation planning DVD.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Tony says InUniverse that some past jokes make him uncomfortable, given the changing political climate.
* GagDub: He did one for his own Halloween special.
* GoldenSnitch: Parodied with the last question of "Is It Still There" (California Adventure edition) being worth 100 points to the 10 and 20 of the first two.
* GroinAttack: Punches his own dick for getting hard about Ariel, since she's half fish and a teenager.
* GuiltyPleasures: Averted. He stands by his love for Maelstrom, "no matter how much my friends hate it."
* HeroicBSOD: After finding out that the animal characters in the Disney parks are actually people in suits in "ABC Goes to Disneyland", Jerk goes through this.
** Briefly goes through one when he finds out Universal is run by Comcast.
* HookersAndBlow: Honey in ''TheCountryBears'' is a [[DrunkOnMilk G-rated replacement.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: How he depicts Randy Moore, who criticizes the Disney parks for being fake and manufactured while using a fake and exaggerated depiction of the parks in his movie.
** Also the producers of ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'', who made a copyright infringement claim on his review of the movie, specifically of the scene shot on the "It's a Small World" ride. ''That'' takes chutzpah.
* ImNotAHeroIm: "I'm not a hero, I'm just a guy who likes to say he's not a hero."
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Wealthy Businessman's reaction to all of Walt Disney's ideas.
-->"You fool! That will NEVER work!"
* {{Jerkass}}: Come on, if you watch a guy named "Some Jerk With A Camera", then don't expect him to be kind.
* JewishComplaining:
** In the "Small World" video, the Jerk's uncle Paul is apparently a seasoned hater and gives the Jerk some tips.
** Referenced in the EPCOT video: "If you kvetch long enough, things will happen to you!"
* JumpScare:
** "Maybe they should have done [the bears outside Rushin' River Outfitters] in CGI. Even that would have been better than..." (the poster from ''Film/YogiBear'' suddenly flashes on screen with suspenseful music) "...'''GAAAAAAH NO IT WOULDN'T NO IT WOULDN'T NO IT WOULDN'T GET IT OFF THE SCREEN'''!!!"
** The abrupt end to the intermission in his EPCOT video.
** The sudden appearance of the Horror Guru as he pops into frame during the "Boy Meets World" review, covering any mention of a collaboration between Count Jackula and Jerk.
** The very final image of the "DCA Halloween" 2017 vlog, after a couple of seconds of black screen, we get a fiery-filtered video of Donald Duck with the titles, "HAIL SATANBIRD." Abandon all hope, ye who wait until the end to turn off the video.
* LargeHam:
** The All-Being.
** Jerk himself often is this.
* LimitedWardrobe: Always wears the same black shirt, probably to maintain continuity with his opener and closer.
* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: Jerk will often film scenes in places that are vaguely related to what he's talking about. For example, when he talks about the erasure of racism in ''Film/TheHauntedMansion'', he is standing next to the "Dumbo the Flying Elephant" ride.[[note]]Dumbo has been criticized for its crows, who are [[SpaceJews based on black stereotypes]].[[/note]]
* MidReviewSketchShow: And HOW. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the Halloween special.
-->'''Jerk:''' Wow, this might actually be a one-part episode! If I can keep my hilarious digressions to a minimum. Speaking of which, I read the most fascinating article on Lithuania today...
* MinMaxing: In a non-roleplaying variation, Tony and his friends tend to get to parks early in order to get on as many rides as possible.
* MoneyDearBoy: InUniverse example. "Why in God's Name did ERIC IDLE agree to be part of this--" [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus "There is nothing quite as wonderful as money..."]]
* NWordPrivileges: The Jerk (who is Jewish) seems to quite enjoy abusing his own.
** Makes a Holocaust joke in his EPCOT video. Interestingly, he's careful to mention that he is Jewish first.
** His very first video ''The Country Bears'' includes one, when claiming Tennessee's trait of being loudly obnoxious makes him a "[[Film/InglouriousBasterds Bear Jew]]".
** In "ABC Goes To Disney World", he notes the skyway with Eisner and Mickey has stopped moving, and demands they get it moving again before "Mickey finds out how tasty Jews are". He then hears some munching, and [[Literature/TheDiaryOfAYoungGirl asks who'd like to let him hide in their attic]].
** Apparently, there are alternate dimensions with world peace but Jews aren't allowed there. Looks like Creator/MelGibson was right.
** Lampshaded in his crossover with ''WebVideo/AnimatedAnalysis''.
-->'''Jerk''': You're just jealous because I'm allowed to make Holocaust jokes!
-->'''Stephan''': That doesn't matter!
-->'''Jerk''': Hey everyone! Stephan just said the Holocaust doesn't matter!
* NobodysThatDumb: In the [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney California Adventure]] retrospective, Jerk depicts Buzz Lightyear and Goofy arguing over whether the new park needs their presence or not.
-->'''Buzz''': They'll be alright! They have a tractor!
-->'''Goofy''': I thought I was supposed to be the idiot...
* TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou: In the review of ''Film/TheHauntedMansion'', Jackula hates the movie but loves the set design and the zombie costumes. He even has a freak-out over the notion that it's all too good for the film.
* OnlyInFlorida:
** In his "Top 10 Attractions in Florida but not in California" video, he calls Florida a "dong-shaped Jew cemetery" and says there's no reason to visit the state except for the theme parks. [[WebVideo/TheBunnyPerspective Phil Bunni]] also cameos and goes on a long rant about everything he hates about Florida which lasts all the way into Jerk's EPCOT Center video.
** In his "Harry Potter at Universal Studios" video, there's a RunningGag in which Luke Ski pops into the screen and says he enjoys widely hated things, including ''{{Film/Pixels}}'' and ''Film/Cars2''. However, [[EveryoneHasStandards he refuses to say he likes Florida.]]
* OurSloganIsTerrible: Star Tours II's slogan for Mos Eisley Cantina. Also, Jerk's own slogans for Detroit, Website/{{Geekvision}}, IMDB, and [[Series/ToCatchAPredator Chris Hansen's]] Decoy Houses.
* OverlyLongGag: In "ABC Goes To Disneyland", his take on George Lopez's promotion of the new Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which eventually forces him into a static loop. Jerk enters Rod Serling-style to comment on this, only to get trapped in the same loop. This happens repeatedly.
-->'''Serling!Jerk #3''': A former joke, getting older and less interesting by the second, not worth the time it took me to do this dumb green-screen effect...
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative:
** Jerk describes ''Film/CaptainEO'' as the greatest short film that Creator/MichaelJackson, Creator/GeorgeLucas, and Creator/FrancisFordCoppola ever collaborated on for the Disney Parks.
** In his crossover with WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh, he's described as the greatest white male, Jewish, long-haired, overweight theme park reviewer over thirty in the world.
* PaintingTheMedium[=/=]FunWithSubtitles: When mocking the subtitles at the beginning of Film/TheHauntedMansion, Jackula and Horror Guru get trapped behind the comically-large subtitles.
* PedoHunt: A RunningGag. The Jerk is repeatedly harassed by [[Series/ToCatchAPredator Chris Hansen]], who often [[MistakenForPedophile misconstrues what he says.]]
* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Jerk, Horror Guru, and Count Jackula mock ''Film/TheHauntedMansion'' for sidestepping the issue of racism in a story centered on the love between a white man and a black woman in 19th century Louisiana.
* {{Postmodernism}}: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in his Film/EscapeFromTomorrow. When Jerk brings up that Randy Moore used it to stop people asking questions about his film's plot, Jerk turns on [[MindScrewdriver the Cine-Kyle]] (played by [[BrowsHeldHigh Kyle "Oancitizen" Kallgren]]) to deliver this gem:
-->"Um... Wow. That's just... fucking stupid. Postmodernism is an extremely broad term covering a thousand smaller movements in art, film, literature, architecture, music, and pretty much every other medium, covering such themes as concept over content, deconstruction of narrative and identity, and celebration of intertextuality. It can be applied to everything from Madonna, to Quentin Tarantino, to Adult Swim, to the internet in general, including ''this very web series.'' Using it as [[HandWave an all-purpose explanation for nonsense]] is as cynical a deflection as saying "I'm speaking English and that should explain everything," ''[[PrecisionFStrike you fucker.]]''
* PrecisionFStrike: At the very end of his ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'' vlog-review, after hearing the director compare people visiting Disneyland to lemmings jumping off a cliff.
-->'''Jerk''': Fuck you!
** Making it even more awesome, he declared his intentions on doing a full review of it afterwards. And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0bS6658aCI here]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41E3-KSfQ-8 it]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB3qNq89yEw is.]]
* PreviouslyOn: Parodied mercilessly in any multiple-part video he does.
-->"No, I'm not gonna tell you what happened in part 1. [[WhereDoYouThinkYouAre It's the fucking internet!]] Go watch it yourself, you lazy dorks!"
* ProductPlacement: Frequently parodied, including his show's very own ads:
-->'''Jerk''': One of these following products causes the same cancer that killed Walt! See if you can guess which one! (''Cue mid-show commercial'')
* RealityEnsues: Some Jerk With A Camera seasons take a long time to make: both because of the guerilla style of shooting, and because theme parks (ESPECIALLY Disney and Universal) are expensive.
* RightHandCat: Michael Eisner, as portrayed by Jerk, has one as a Bond villain parody, named [[Creator/JeffreyKatzenberg Jeffrey Kittykatzenberg]]. ("Played" by a [[Disney/TheAristocats Marie]] plush.) During the DCA review he accidentally tosses it into his fireplace, and in the ''Full House'' review he's forced to eat it.
* RunningGag:
** Some Jerk's one-off characters have a tendency to suffer cardiac arrest and die once their skits end. Lampshaded in Jerk's "Season 2 Outtakes OUTTAKES!"
-->'''Scott Baio''': Oh for God's sake, another heart attack? You know you've done this joke to death! (''collapses'') Literally.
** Claiming that one of his advertisers did something terrible. "See if you can guess which one!"
** Portraying Michael Eisner as evil, often with an EyepatchOfPower and RightHandCat.
** {{Website/IMDB}}: [[RidiculousProcrastinator What you do instead of things!]]
** Previously, on ''acid'' / ''The Jerk Jerkman Show'' / ''Some Camera with a Jerk'' / etc.
** The Jerk quoting and poking fun at Buzz Lightyear's lines from a Disneyland California Adventure ad that had been played for a while on Blip at the time.
** [[ItWillNeverCatchOn "You fool, that'll never work!"]]
* SelfDeprecation: Frequent, but also referenced at Disney's stake:
-->'''Jerk''': Even Disney hates this ride so much they dissed it in one of their biggest movies ever!
-->'''Scar''': NO! NO! Anything but that!
-->'''Jerk''': AWW SNAP! Disney disses Disney! Take that... Yourselves. Uptop!
* ShaggyDogStory: His video on the Walt Disney Family Museum. During his first visit, his camera's battery goes out, forcing him to call off filming that day. The next day the museum is closed, and the day after that he has to return to LA. He's since had to put off covering the museum in the near future.
* ShapedLikeItself: Tony calls DCA "the Disney's California Adventure of theme parks".
* SharedUniverse: Because of his several cameos and crossovers, and eventually because of his inclusion in Channel Awesome, Jerk is part of the Reviewaverse. He even mentioned the Reviewaverse by name.
* ShoutOut:
** Frequent recipients include Music/WeirdAlYankovic, Creator/MontyPython, ''Series/MrShow'', and ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''.
** The opening to Part 1 of his ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' makes fun of the opening to ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' by refilming the opening to his previous episode exactly, expect for Luke Ski's puppet having a cardboard cutout of the head of Elisabeth Shue pasted on, referencing the recast of Jennifer in-between the movies.
** In Part 3 of the ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' TerribleIntervieweesMontage, one of the Doc Brown impersonators is [[{{WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty}} Rick Sanchez]].
* ShownTheirWork: Especially in his DCA and EPCOT videos.
* SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers: Though he's perfectly willing to [[AffectionateParody affectionately]] mock Disney, he takes this attitude towards works like ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' and ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'', which are more negative towards Disney.
* SitcomArchNemesis: As of the EPCOT video, [[Series/ToCatchAPredator Chris Hansen]].
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: The Nostalgia Critic puts an end to Jerk's "Where's the Fat, Universal" crusade in the "Harry Potter at Universal Hollywood" video by inquiring about the sweatshirt Jerk has tied around his waist. That he has had on ''every time'' he tried the test seat at "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey". One cut away later:
-->'''Jerk''': (shot of "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey"'s exterior) '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis BEST! RIDE! EVER!]]'''''
* StoryArc: His Halloween episode leads right into his Christmas special, which leads right into his ''Star Tours II'' review.
* StreisandEffect: InUniverse example. This is what Jerk says would have happened if Disney had attempted to suppress ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'', and why it was wise that they didn't try to do so.
* TakeThat:
** When [[Series/{{Dateline}} Chris Hansen]] appears, Jerk calls him, among other things, "sadistic and crazy."
** Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner is always portrayed as a Bond Villain.
** He mentions his dislike for Creator/AynRand in his commentary video for "Thirty Years of EPCOT." In it, he calls her "the most despicable person who never killed anyone." He also describes a libertarian world as one in which poor people are forced to eat each other in his video for the new Star Tours.
** His ''The Simpsons Ride'' review slams Universal's lack of identity (most of the licensed properties in its parks are ones it doesn't actually own, and many of the ones it does own are totally unfamiliar to today's kids), ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' and its "abuse is romantic" message, as well as his irritation at the [[EnsembleDarkhorse Minions]] completely taking over the [[Film/DespicableMe franchise they emerged from]], as well as the park itself.
** His ''Top 11 Florida Attractions Not In California'' video includes a TakeThat to Micechat, a Disney-themed online forum which removed his videos due to profanity.
** The tourism [[OurSloganIsTerrible slogan]] he makes for {{UsefulNotes/Detroit}}: ''[[WretchedHive It's a shithole full of people who steal!]]'' Punctuated by a gunshot.
** His video on what Creator/DonaldTrump's election would mean for the Hall of Presidents was utterly jam-packed with every insult he could think of against Trump. He finished it off by mocking Creator/JimmyFallon as well.
** He snuck in a dig at the women-in-gaming controversy in his ''Back To The Future: The Ride'' review, which is represented as an actual gate where people who insult women on the internet are chained.
%%As this is a touchy subject on this wiki, don't include any further elaboration on the example; only what Jerk's show depicts in-universe.%%
** When eating a park map, to try out the joke about eating a map in ''Captain EO'', Tony said "Finally, an affordable theme park meal".
* TemptingFate: Surely this latest small, insignificant change to the park won't set off a backlash among fans. "Right? RIIIIIIIIGHT?"
* ThisIsGoingToBeHuge: Mocked with ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' at the end of his 2016 theme park news episode. He flashes back to the operators of Animal Kingdom hastily green-lighting ''Ride/PandoraTheWorldOfAvatar'' in 2011 despite it having almost nothing to do with animals beyond its alien ecosystem and its GreenAesop. Fast-forward to 2016, and Animal Kingdom has broken ground on a massive expansion based on a film that's been mostly forgotten since, while Disney releases two films, ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' and ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'', that are not only massive hits but are far more appropriate to the theme of Animal Kingdom than ''Avatar'' ever was. Cue the guy who pushed for the expansion screaming "[[CurseCutShort FFFUUUUUUUUU-]]".
* ThoseTwoGuys: Mikey Insanity and WebVideo/TheRosenHacker occasionally fit the bill.
--> '''Rosen''': Did you hear something?
--> '''Mikey''': Who cares? I'm on vacation!
* TopTenList: He has several Top Eleven lists, each with a parody of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's appropriate catchphrase.
** Florida attractions not in California (with bonus updated list several years later when it was posted on Channel Awesome)
** Comic Book Jerk's list of nitpicks about The Simpsons Ride
* UncannyValley: [[invoked]]His opinion of the bears in ''Film/TheCountryBears''. They look "just real enough to look totally fake. And kind of scary."
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Inverted during Jerk's review of ''Full House's'' Disney World episode; he's surprised at how amazed D.J., Stephanie, Michelle, and Kimmy are at the sight of Main Street, pointing out that it's no different from Disneyland's. This leads him to believe the Tanners have ''never gone to Disneyland'', which he finds baffling since they 1.) live in California, and 2.) are clearly wealthy enough to afford at least one trip to the park. He ends up calling Child Services to file a report on (fictional) child abuse on their behalf, only to be put on hold.
* WaxingLyrical: At the beginning of part 2 of the EPCOT retrospective, the variation of [[OnceAnEpisode "And now..."]] is [[{{Music/Asia}} "And now, you find yourself in '82."]]
* WeightWoe: Jerk is too fat to ride Ride/HarryPotterAndTheForbiddenJourney so he has to review it based on Youtube videos and memories from when he was able to ride the Florida version.
** Parodied...as he was wearing a sweatshirt that added extra bulk.
* WeirdAlEffect: [[invoked]] Jerk thinks that Michael Jackson ripped off a bunch of Weird Al songs.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: InUniverse Tony noted that if his grandfather were alive, he'd have had him appear in the EPCOT video, acting as Creator/DannyKaye, since Tony thinks Kaye and his grandpa have a CelebrityResemblance.
* WildMassGuessing: [[invoked]] In the new (Channel Awesome) opening, he talks about how ''Film/CaptainEO'' was revamped into a theater for new Disney movies. He then starts to draw comparisons between ''Captain EO'' and ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', realizing that Captain EO is Starlord's father.
* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: Spoofed in the review of ''Film/CaptainEO'', claiming that trying whips in knots without moving the whips was what broke the verisimilitude of the movie, not the other silly and fantastical stuff.
* WorldOfWeirdness: With the show set in the Reviewaverse, the show can get/has gotten ''really...REALLY...weird''.
* YouAreFat: Some Jerk's rant against test seats that don't allow for fat people. It has quite a few fat jokes.
--> '''SJWAC''': It's a cutting edge ride, that raises the bar higher than a fat guy trying to squeeze into the seat- okay, who wrote that?
--> '''[[WebVideo/TheBunnyPerspective Phil Bunni]]''': ''(laughs)''
--> '''SJWAC''': Not cool! You know, I'm too fat to go on the Dragon Challenge coaster, and I'm almost too fat for Forbidden Journey. I just barely made it. I didn't think I'd be able to at first, I had a panic attack. I think [[BlackComedyCannibalism I ate a couple of people]], but don't worry, I forgive myself. You know it's kind of disgusting how many rides at Universal have those kinds of test seats. And it's not just a fat thing, huge muscular dudes can't ride either, probably. Don't humongoloids and fat sacks of crap deserve their thrills too? It's not like they're ''({{beat}})'' short. Like you. And further more,...
--> 3 hours later ''(cut to Phil banging his head against his desk)''
--> '''SJWAC''': I mean [[Franchise/HarryPotter Hagrid]] couldn't ride this, but Voldemort could no problem. Is that the kind of wizarding world you want to live in? I'm taking a stand for this-''("Fat" by Weird Al starts)'' Stop this music, this is serious! ''(takes a bite of his churro and [[ItMakesSenseInContext hamfist]])''
