YMMV: Jacksfilms

  • Acceptable Targets:
  • 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:
    • The outro jingles for YGS, JackAsk, and YIAY.
    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.
    YIAY: Leave your answers in the comments below, I'll pick my favorites in the next episode of YIAY.

    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".
  • 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!
  • Memetic Mutation: A light switch.
  • 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.
  • 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.note  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.
