Emily Rose Youcis (b. 1990) is an internet personality and a self-described disturbed individual who had "fallen of the edge" sometime in her late adolescence. Since 2016, she's turned to Neo-Nazi and white supremacist ideology, which has come to define her public image and later works.
She is probably best known for her animated works, chief among which is Alfred's Playhouse: a short, yet crushing tragedy concerning an abused pitbull succumbing to Split-Personality Takeover. Aside from Playhouse, Emily is also known for producing other Deranged Animations, such as music videos for Tyler, the Creator and MC Bushpig and whatever you would call her "Wal-Mart Twins".
In 2010, ScrappleTV hosted Da Emily Show mini-series, a low-budget variety show consisting of "bad" music and general wackiness. From late 2010 to 2016, Emily was the front-runner for her band, Emily Pukis and the Vagrants, which started as a GG Allin cover project but later started producing original music.
Furthermore, Emily has made cameos and been involved in numerous collaborative projects with fellow creators. In Where the Dead Go to Die, for example, she lent her vocal talents for her friend Jimmy ScreamerClaus.
After she came out in support of Neo-Nazi ideology, her work started to focus mostly on these views. As a result, many of her supporters and collaborators have distanced themselves from her.
General traits to this Creator:
Tropes relating specifically to her art/animation:
- Art Evolution: For what had began as crude cut-and-paste MS Paint doodles animated into distorted music videos has slowly evolved into more and more sophisticated Flash animations. Most recently, the Alfred Alfer movie has produced segments featuring detailed expressions, shadows and lighting, and smoother motions.
- Bowdlerise: The Alfred Christmas Episode had received mixed reviews and some criticism on Newgrounds, mainly for Emily's heavy use of "lame" euphemisms and less offensive humor.
- Cerebus Syndrome: Her earliest works comprised mostly of Affectionate Parodies and goofy, lighthearted skits of Alfred Alfer and an abandoned character called Phat Dawg. Over the past decade, the animations she's produced have grown increasingly sexual, violent, and depressing. Her current project crosses over with Where the Dead Go to Die.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In her early animations, Emily had another dog character, named Phat Dawg, who played Sidekick to Alfred. After "Perpetual Limbo of the Room", there was no mention or appearance of him there onwards. Coincidentally, the voice of Phat Dawg happened to be her own brother, Lee.
- Deranged Animation: You'll have a hard time finding a work of hers that doesn't revel in wackiness. The most outrageous (and that's putting it lightly) has got be her music video for MC Bushpig's "Eat My Rotten Meat".
- Reference Overdosed: All of her animations make abundant references to all her favorite media, far too much for this page alone. For a full list, see her Reference Overdosed entry.
- Take That!: Emily claims that the titular character from Mr. Pickles had been a rip off of her character Dictator Pickles, so in a teaser for the Alfred movie she has Alfred tie him up and violate him with a pickle, post-mortem.
Tropes relating to her music:
Da Emily Show and other live-action tropes:
- Blasphemous Boast: In an episode of Da Emily Show, she inquires of the audience if she would be on the stage and "this throne" if she were not the Savior.
- Comedic Underwear Exposure: Although exhibitionism is nothing new for her, there was a particular example of her half-nude as a gag in an episode of Smut Cave. Notably, the Spelunker auctioning off her worn undies in the Christmas Episode.
- Large Ham: On camera, she is known to bark, howl, spontaneously begin headbanging and so forth; all to express her identity as thee Emily Youcis.
- The Stoner: She acts and looks stoned, constantly, and can occasionally be seen lighting up during livestreams. This is especially evident in her show which by and large is her convulsing and uttering non-sense.
