YMMV: Llamas with Hats
  • Crosses the Line Twice: And three times and four times and five times and... You know what? Forget it, the line has been crossed so many times it pretty much doesn't exist anymore. That is, until Carl draws a new line purely for the sake of crossing it again.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Granted it just illustrates Carl's horribleness but you've got to admit: the Meat Dragon is actually pretty cool.
  • Germans Love Llamas With Hats: The German Dub of the video has developed into a national phenomenon in both Germany and Austria. Especially in high schools, iPhone versions of the videos are currently the most popular pastime of the students.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The first short has Carl cut off his victim's hands and eating them. Several years later, the film Pain and Gain has a sequence where the main characters cut off two victims' hands and cook them on a grill (they don't eat them though). Played for Laughs, of course.
  • Memetic Mutation: Ever since episode one came out, the series practically became this. The quotes are said everywhere on the Internet. In addition, there's already crossover fanfiction with characters from another media practically speaking their own varied version of the episodes. Damn, this could beat Charlie The Unicorn.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Carl blowing up his own city with a nuke.
    • Pretty much anything Carl does, really.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The faces from episode 4
  • Squick: Flayed faces. Raw flayed faces. Raw flayed faces attached to balloons.
    Paul: I think I'm gonna throw... oh God, one touched me.
    • Even Carl was grossed out by the faces... But only because they were undercooked. That just won't do at all. Raw face is just gross.
  • Tough Act to Follow: Parodied and lampshaded to hell and back in the fifth video. Yeah having baby hands from another dimension fall around is pretty bad but compared to completely annihilating a city from existence with a nuke then having flayed faces rain from the sky, it's almost a relief. In fact, depending on how the whole other dimension thing works it's entirely possible that Carl didn't kill or harm a single person in the video.
