'''Big Clive''' is an IsleOfMan based Scottish [[YouTube YouTuber]], who describes his channel as "the trashiest electronics channel on YouTube". What he means is, the channel focuses principally on the disassembly and analysis of [[MadeInCountryX piss cheap Chinese electrical items]] from places such as eBay and Poundland, as well as more mundane electrical items and explanations of technical concepts, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and dolls that shoot flames out of their genitals]]. Half of the appeal is Clive himself, perennially calm, knowledgeable and sardonic while also being all too willing to do very stupid things on camera.

!!Big Clive's videos contain examples of the following tropes:

* ColbertBump: Clive got a significant boost when StuartAshen included a segment with Clive in one of his videos, taking apart and critiquing an (actually rather good) Poundworld power bank.
* Don'tTryThisAtHome: Clive does a lot of rather dangerous things, often with very little warning other than "this is very dangerous", with a notable exception being the time that he decided to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5R-KBa18ME&t=32s put 240v mains current across his chest arm to arm]][[note:Suffice to say this is ''ridiculously'' dangerous and carries a severe risk of death]] and was spurred to add a ''very'' long content warning at the start of the video.
* TakeThat: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1IjOi9cBsE TOP ECO DIY TIPZ]] video is an ''extremely'' sarcastic imitation/teardown of channels like DIYPerks, who attempt to "DIY" various electrical projects with varying degrees of competence and safety.
