- Acceptable Targets:
- Homophobes and racists are frequently destroyed by Jack in Your Grammar Sucks.
- The Fault in Our Stars
- Nicki Minaj
- Ray William Johnson tends to get a fair degree of vitriol due to his content. He similarly targets Sam Pepper, albeit for both different content and allegations launched against Sam.
- More affectionately, Jack repeatedly targets Olga Kay and her grammar ("Oh Olga!") PewDiePie, Matthew Santoro, Tyler Oakley, and iJustine. In some cases, they join in with the bashing.
- Accidental Innuendo: See Squick further down the page.
- Awesome Music: Dubstep Solves Everything. All three of them.
- 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.
- "If you don't like Christmas, you're probably a Jew / And I don't want nothing to do with you..."
- Dude, Not Funny!: In one episode of YIAY, Jack read off some answers that viewers gave him of book sequels they'd like to see. One answer was The Diary of Anne Frank: Anne Goes to Hollywood. Jack even reacted with, "That's awful."
- Ear Worm:
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!
- The outro jingles for YGS and JackAsk.
Jackask: So ask me your questions/and I will ignore them/'Cause I'm a jackask/A big fat freakin' jackask.
The News in Haikus
- Any of the PMS music videos/songs. Notable examples include "Razors in Your Apples", "Take Off Your Clothes (Like Scarlett Johansson)", "#ChristmasMiracle", "Raping VS Rapping" and "You're VS Your", and "Christmas is my favourite freaking holiday".
- The News in Haikus series is full of this.
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.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Jack often used "Damn, that's almost 100!" as a Brick Joke in various YGS sketches. Nowadays, the series... is.
- 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:
- The ending of "'LYMPIC GAMES. 'LYMPIC GAMES." where Jack runs into the green screen and it suddenly cuts to his bloody face◊ screaming at the viewer. Definitely a Jump Scare.
- The Top 10 YouTubers video is also pretty disturbing. It starts off well, with 10, 9, and 8 being PewDiePie. When it hits 7, he starts chanting "They're all PewDiePie," complete with Jack's Sanity Slippage and creepy obsession with him. He puts on lipstick, scribbles "Mrs. Jack PewDiePie" on paper, and finally, shoots himself, with blood coming out, spelling the said chant. What saves it from being downright hell is the Mood Whiplash ending.
- His YouTube impersonation video, while for the most part funny, has an "impersonation" of Sam Pepper which is just creepy.
- 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.
- Tear Jerker: YGS #99. At the start, we learn that this will be the last song in the series and it is implied that number 100 will be the final episode. Jack then treats us to a medley of all previous songs in the series, evoking nostalgic feels. And for his final act, Jack sings a melancholy, heartfelt reprise of the outro jingle. The video ends on a white background with the caption, "See you at 100." Millions of biches cried immediately.
