Web Video: The Art Of Doing Things
aka: Evmoney TV
The Art Of Doing Things is a YouTube video channel by Evmoney TV that uses stick figures and humor to inform viewers on how to do things that should seem simple, but most people don't act like they know how to do. Such things include waiting in line, throwing things away and using a public restroom. The videos are a not so subtle poke at how modern day people just don't seem to get basic etiquette.It can be found here.Tropes for this work include:
- Accidental Pervert: "Mall Walker's Rape." In order to prevent it, Ev's preferred method is wearing copious amounts of Axe deodorant, "which will make you smell like a prepubescent teenage male" and thus drive people away.
- Ambiguously Gay: Ev himself in "Confessions of a Homo-ner." Less ambiguous in other vids.
- Art Shift: Occasionally shifts from simplistic stick figures to highly detailed line art.
- Banana Peel: The gag is referenced in "How To Throw Things Out"
- The Deadliest Mushroom: "How To Survive A Nuclear Blast"
- Does Not Understand Sarcasm: "How To Use Sarcasm" video is for these people and their friends.
- Domino Mask: A girl crossing the street at night in "How To Cross The Street" sports one.
- Male Frontal Nudity: Shown in "How To Go To The Gym". Considering all the characters are stick figures, if you're offended by this, you're probably offended by the letter I.
- Precision F-Strike: I'M WEARING MOTHERFUCKIN' PANTS!
- Raging Stiffie: "I didn't realize this was a widespread problem..."
- Relax-o-Vision: In case learning about how to use a Credit/Debit card machine has been too grueling for you.
- Ridiculous Procrastinator "How To Procrastinate"
- Think Unsexy Thoughts: In "Viewer Requests," this is the first part of a 90-second section (out of five minutes total) on "How To Hide A Boner." After thinking about Grandma's cookies and final exams fail, Ev suggests this:I don't know the words to this songMistletoe! I'm not the father!Yeahhhhh, shorty...
- Unusual Euphemism: A hurricane of them in "How To Dump".
