* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqega6a2g6A Aphex Twin buys beer]]. Sadly, it isn't actually Richard, but the person in the video looks so similar to him that we might as well call him "Richard". With "Funny Little Man" playing as BGM, the video consists of surveillance footage taken in 2009 of "Richard" drunkenly sauntering through a vacant store, only to find massive amounts of trouble keeping his center of gravity and staying on his two feet. Eventually, "Richard" falls down and can't muster the stamina to get up, and eventually people discover him. The video ends with him stumbling towards the exit in a zombie-like manner, only to tumble backwards at the last second.

** The best part? Richard's actually seen the video.
--->"yeah cant believe i was caught on camera, embarrasing, had to much regretamine"


** However, the "for Cash" part in the title was actually due to the fact that Richard had met with all those people he remixed in person to get his pay in cash, so nobody would know his bank details or figure out where he leaved.

* Let's face it: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0zBDr6eLJM Phone Pranks]]", the last (and rather hilarious) track from the Caustic Window LP features one of the audio recordings of Richard himself pranking some of his friends including Mike Paradinas AKA µ-Ziq.

Added DiffLines:

** And also as a celebration to the ''Syro'' album release, this fan-made video "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlKgw5rDObc Aphex Twin Does Omegle/Chatroulette!]]" features a prank involving [[DistractedByTheSexy seducing the victims]] [[UnsettlingGenderReveal until revealing]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice Richard's mask from the ''Windowlicker'' music video in order to scare the shit out of them]]! [[spoiler: Bonus points for the said 1999 track being played in the background!]]


* The ending of "Milkman", which has Richard's voice progressively getting pitch-bended more and more. The result is pretty damn funny.

to:

* The bulk of "Milkman" is a mostly odd, yet strangely cheerful song for Richard, complete with [[StepUpToTheMicrophone him gently singing]] "I wish the milkman would deliver my milk in the morning / I wish the milkman would deliver my milk when I'm yawning." That is, [[MoodWhiplash until he reaches]] [[spoiler:[[LyricalDissonance "I would like some milk from the milkman's wife's tits..."]]]], where then it abruptly becomes hysterical.

Added DiffLines:

* In the beginning of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzvLiwUK3R8 Field Day 2017 festival]], a FreezeFrameBonus is featured at the 4:39 mark which says "[[TakeThat fuck]] [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump trump]]" and also "[[CrossesTheLineTwice trump is dead]]".


* Some guy made [[https://soundcloud.com/david_rees/sets/aphex-swift an album]] of Aphex Twin[=/=]Music/TaylorSwift mashups. [[RefugeInAudacity Because why wouldn't you.]] If you want a good chuckle, just look at the comments for each track. [[LoveItOrHateIt They'll be split between]] absolute marveling and utter horror and disgust.
