YMMV: Olan Rogers
  • Awesome Music:
    • The New Prime soundtrack by Post-Rock band Awake Awake and many other contributions from fans.
    • He frequently samples Sigur Rós.
    • The credits to The Last Scene use Mumford & Sons' "After The Storm".
  • Growing the Beard: And how. Compare the production qualities of Balloonshop videos to The Last Scene, then compare The Last Scene to New Prime. Then compare New Prime 2 to New Prime 5.
  • Iron Woobie: Ferris.
  • Narm:
  • Special Effects Failure: A few times.
    • In New Prime 2 & 3, there are a few instances of debris that should be behind the characters crossing in front of them.
    • In New Prime 4, for whatever reason, Bob's candle is not actually lit, but a digital flame is inserted. However, the flame does not match the Color Wash of the rest of the video.
    • In New Prime 5, at one point a ship is hit with a missile and the explosion moves with the ship rather than remaining behind.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • New Prime 5
      • The scene by the fire where Zack reveals that he's The Empath to Ferris and tries to cheer him up.
      • Ferris almost dying at the hands of The Phantom.
      • Ferris' reunion with Brenda/Daniels' and Scar's deaths.
    • Olan implies there will be a lot of these in Pop Rocket and The New Scene.
      • Olan discusses the turn of events leading to him moving away from all of his friends, including him being jumped by five people. He cries.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: New Prime 5 was made with No Budget. Yeah.
  • The Woobie: Endlessly bullied in school, being beaten to the point of breaking his ribs at one point (which he was made fun of even more for). In Seventh grade he ran home every day to avoid being attacked by bullies. The "LIFE UPDATE" reinforces this, as seen above.
