YMMV: Jacksfilms
  • Acceptable Targets:
  • Accidental Innuendo: See Squick further down the page.
  • Awesome Music: Dubstep Solves Everything 3 and any of the YGS raps.
  • Critical Research Failure:
    • Chad Broseph Huntington is a member of Delta Sigma Delta, which is actually a dental fraternity, and therefore very likely not something that he would have been admitted into. It's probably Rule of Funny.
    • Your Grammar Sucks #55: "Rigtig god sang" isn't bad grammar. It's danish for "really good song".
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The amount of people that cannot spell "rapper" is disturbing and funny.
  • Ear Worm:
    • The outro jingles for YGS and JackAsk.
    YGS: Help me... clean up YouTube! If you see a bad, bad comment take a screencap of it, and send it my way, via Twitter or my Facebook fanpaaage!
    Jackask: So ask me your questions/and I will ignore them/'Cause I'm a jackask/A big fat freakin' jackask.

    My personal gift to you
    Thank you for the views
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • All of Jack's fakey-douchey behavior towards Kristen, now that they've broken up (though it was supposedly on good terms). This also applies to the fake breakup videos, such as "Jackbuscus".
    • The 'poor brian' Running Gagnote , now that an actual Brian has been Killed Off for Real. He came back to life later, but still.
  • Ho Yay:
    • A bit in YGS #51, where he and his guest are drinking while repeatedly staring at each other in the eye, and at one point receiving a drink by having it go from the guest's mouth into his. Played for Laughs.
    • In #50, Jack gives a kiss to one of his male guests on the cheek, and a few times PewDiePie gets a bit close to him. Again, Played for Laughs to the point that the latter's the source of several outtakes because neither Jack nor Felix could keep a straight face.
    • Christmas Miracle, which features an all-male pillow fight, among other things.
  • Magnum Opus: Jack considers his song "Take Off Your Clothes (Like Scarlett Johansson)" to be this. He found a rhyme for Johansson!
  • Narm: Most of the comments in the YGS would be heartwarming, deliberately funny, sad or downright scary... but they contain so many misspellings that they just become laughable.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Squick:
    • Jack points out that the amount of people who can't spell "rapper" and instead type "raper" is rather worrying. It truly falls into this trope, however, when people make this mistake with things which would otherwise be innocent and heartwarming. One of the worst examples would be that of a picture of a child being wrapped up, with the tagline "I raped my sister so she will be quiet"... yeah...
    • A few younger users show that their age is partly to blame, if it's any consolation; at least a few times the named and shamed have their age typed. For example "I'm a rap(p)er and I'm 8 peace".
    • To put this in context, this happened so often Jack had material to write a song about it.
