Go To

Considering that the Hobo Bros are the same people behind SMG4's Mario Bloopers, lots of funny moments are to be expected!

    open/close all folders 

    Gaming videos 
  • Their reactions to some of the playable characters in Smash Bros Infinite are pretty funny. That game never fails to make them laugh.
  • Peach's bad habit of killing Luigi in their Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle videos.
  • Tony Hawks Pro Skater HACKED!:
  • Luke and Kevin get hysterical playing Nickelodeon TOON TWISTER 3-D. Special mention goes to the part where they learn they can record audio. Kevin shouts "WHAT DA FUCK!" into the microphone, making him and Luke laugh... and they accidentally record the next few seconds of what they say, then decide to just Throw It In!.
  • FAIL SPONGEBOB AND PATRICK STUNTS || GTA 5 MODS [Spongebob Squarepants mod] is also really funny. Luke and Kevin play Grand Theft Auto V, but modded so that the player characters are Spongebob and Patrick. They attempt to do stunts on an obstacle course, and fail hilariously.
    • At one point, Luke and Kevin are riding on a motorcycle together. Kevin is driving, while Luke trolls him by spawning in enormous planes to block the path. At one point, Kevin hits a plane, causing the motorcycle to fall off the road.
    • Near the end, Luke and Kevin are riding on a motorcycle again. They come across a sharp curve in the road. Instead of going along the curve, Kevin tries to cut across it, but since his motorcycle isn't fast enough, they fall off the road. Luke's reaction is hilarious.
    "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" (laughing)
  • CRINGE COMPETITION || PART 3 || FISHY BOOPKINS and SMG4 in New Super Mario Bros Wii (NSMBW)
    • Luke and Kevin credit "the power of memes" for helping them get through a level. When they start the next level, they try to summon "double the memes" by referencing Discredited Memes, like "Chocolate Rain" and "Numa Numa".
    • "Killing yourself is not a meme."
    • Since they're playing an ice level and being attacked by penguin enemies, Luke suggests that they make Club Penguin memes. Kevin simply says "fuck", and mentions how players used to make memes about getting banned from Club Penguin for cursing. Luke and Kevin both die in the game immediately afterwards, and they joke that NSMBW banned them for swearing.
    • They joke that they're going to lose all their lives before the video ends. They then try the level again... and die almost immediately.
    • When Kevin inadvertently causes Luke to get hit from behind by one of the penguin enemies:
    Kevin: I'm sorry, Luke. Sorry.
    Luke: It's okay. I got anal'd by that penguin, and I'm okay with that.
  • From their playthrough of Cuphead:
    • For the intro cutscene, they give the characters "Asian voices" just For the Lulz (note that the Bros are of Asian descent too.) When the Devil says "Now get out!" Kevin says "Get the fuck out of my... stir-fry shop!" The high-pitched voices that Luke does for Cuphead and Mugman are also pretty funny.
    • When the first two members of the Root Pack appear, Luke and Kevin call them the wrong kind of vegetables. The editors are quick to point this out, complete with the "You are retard?" clip from Borat. They finally get it right with Psycarrot, though.
      Kevin, upon seeing Moe Tato, a potato: It's a giant pumpkin!
    • And from then on, "You are retard" becomes a Running Gag, where the clip is played every time Luke or Kevin makes an especially dumb mistake.
    • After several attempts to beat Grim Matchstick, Kevin gets so into it that he actually screams when he and Luke die at one point.
  • Luke and Kevin discover a Super Mario 64 mod that allows Mario to create portals. Naturally, the bros exploit this ability to screw around and glitch the game.
    • Luke and Kevin try teleporting some Toads, leaving them floating above the ground. When they have Mario talk to the Toads, Luke speaks for them. For the first Toad, Luke says:
    • For the second Toad's dialogue, Luke simply screams.
    • They teleport Whomp King out of his arena, and he seemingly falls off the stage.
      Luke: Don't kill yourself, it's not worth it.
      Kevin: It's not worth it, dude.
    • The bros realize that they don't have enough stars to get through the door to the first Bowser level, so Luke simply uses the portals to glitch the doors away so he can just walk right through.
    • In the Bowser stage, Kevin advises Luke on where to aim the portals so they can skip right to the end of the level. His placement is off every time, causing Mario to fall to his death many times.
    • Kevin is getting tired of Luke taking so long to beat the level:
      Kevin: Come on... come on...
      Luke: I'm going...
      (Luke accidentally causes Mario to fall off a platform, forcing him to try that section of the level again.)
      Kevin: Come ooooooon!
      Luke: You wanna try?
      Kevin: ...No. (chuckles)
  • The bros mod Super Mario 64 to make Fishy Boopkins the player character, and then try the Green Demon challenge.note  Hilarity ensues.
    • Luke notes that the Fishy Boopkins model falls into the Uncanny Valley, claiming it looks "possessed".
    • They have Fishy talk to the first Toad in Peach's Castle, and while Kevin talks over him in the Fishy Boopkins voice, Luke speaks for the Toad.
    • At one point, both brothers have a sudden coughing fit, and Kevin jokes that the game is "giving [them] cancer."
    • Luke starts singing along to the cheerful Whomp's Fortress music, with lyrics like "Kevin's gonna die."
    • At least once, the 1-up Mushroom seemingly disappears. Luke and Kevin stop and wonder what happened to it, when a couple seconds later, the mushroom comes back, and Luke and Kevin react the way one would react to a Jump Scare.
  • The bros and some friends play Mario Party 9... playing as SMG4, Bob, Fishy Boopkins and Kermit the Frog. The sheer ridiculousness of it all is compounded by Fishy Boopkins' model constantly deforming.
  • Poor Luke is terrified of Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning, often screaming and hiding while he or Kevin is playing.
  • The playthrough of 3D Movie Maker involves the next chapter of the Carl Chronicles made in Toom Twister 3D. The bros notice that the model used for Po is the same model of her used in Garry's Mod and they immediately compare it to a normal SMG4 video.

    YouTubers vs. Speedrunners 
  • In the first 10 vs. 1 run of Super Mario 64 Online the 10 YouTubers get 70 stars first...and spent two and a half minutes utterly failing to get to Bowser, allowing the speedrunner SimpleFlips to catch up and beat them.
    Muselk: He's got the seventieth star, people, HURRY UP!
  • 10 vs 1 120 Star run:
    • The race barely started when....
    • When discussing how this was the best time to be a gamer right now, what with all the games and mods coming out, a joke was made about how all these games are coming out and Simple only plays Super Mario 64.
    Simple: I'll have you know that in my free time, I also play Tetris.
    [cue The Price Is Right losing sound as a caption shows both games with 'SimpleFlips's entire game library' under it.]
    • One minute Bandy was trying to grab a pole, the next he was somehow dead. Even the video editor had to go 'WTF'.
  • 10 vs 2 120 Star Run:
    • Kevin begging Simple not to enter the final boss fight.
    Kevin: Simple, wait! I'm pregnant with your baby!
    Simple: I know.
    Caption: Ok, let's pretend we never heard that.
    • This time both Kevin and HelixSnake randomly died on the pole.
  • 10 vs. 1 but Everyone's Waluigi:
  • 10 vs 1 but we try to STOP him:
    • Context: 9 of the YouTubers are playing as Peach trying to sabotage SimpleFlips's run. At one point Simple disguises himself as Peach as well and starts to beat up the other Peaches to fool them into thinking one of them betrayed the team. The funniest part is that time he wasted doing that may very well have cost him the win, as it literally came down to the final throw, which Bandy got first, despite choking numerous times.
    • "Who's the [blank] in the lobby?" Someone (initially playing as Peach, but also used Mario and Wario) just waited in the lobby to try to beat up the Youtubers, and no one knows who it is.
  • 10 vs 1 but We're Fat:
    • Simple is never able to do the Bomb Clip glitch to get the sixth star in Bob-Omb Battlefield, but for some reason he's able to do it as Wario.
    • Everyone's reactions to how slow Wario is, especially since it turns out his weight makes it impossible to use the Wing Cap.
    • Nintendrew's Hank Hill impression.
  • 5 v 2 but you can't jump: Everyone tries to do the run as Goombas. It turns out it's impossible to even get either of the first stars-the Chain Chomp one or the King Bob-omb one-as a Goomba, meaning this run was impossible. The rest of the time was spent trying to find glitches or ways to actually continue.
  • 6 V. 2 but We're All in the Same Room:
    Kevin: Now we can trash talk and look each other square in the eye when I tell SimpleFlips he's adopted!
  • Then there's the 5 v. 1 but everyone's Knuckles round. The YouTubers spent almost twenty minutes trying to get to Bowser and failing, allowing SimpleFlips to catch up (and for context he was at fifty-six stars). Yes, he gets the win again.
    • For much of the run everyone spent time dunking on Nathaniel Bandy, who was absent this episode. (And then they declared him the true winner of the Knuckles run, since he didn't have to play it.)
  • 5 v. 2 Anniversary Edition:
    • DPadGamer, for some reason, chose to do it as a Goomba and vowed that he would get three stars anyway. He gets four: two of the Toad stars, the eight red coins in the Wing Cap stage, and the eight red coins in Lethal Lava Land. Not helping is that some of the stars that were theoretically feasible for him to get, others beat him to it.
    • To celebrate, they decided to play with a "Fortnite mod" that has their characters dance when they collect a star. Hilarity Ensues when they learn the characters also dance when they grab something.
      • Goomba's dance is just him kicking his feet.
      • The end of Kirby's dance makes him look like he ate his arms.
  • 5 v. 2 Christmas edition:
    • They used a cosmetic mod to make everything look Christmasy, and the YouTubers were in Christmas colors, while the speedrunners had their Mario models all in green to be the Grinches.
    • Constant joking about how it's supposedly actually June/July.
    • Nintendrew looking like Ralphie from A Christmas Story.

    Hobo Theatre 
  • The Untold Story of Fishy Boopkins is A Day in the Limelight for Fishy Boopkins from SMG4's Mario Bloopers, and it's perhaps one of the funniest episodes of Hobo Theatre.
    • Kevin notes multiple times that doing Fishy Boopkins' voice strains his throat. Poor Fishy, even his voice actor finds him annoying!
    • Boopkins's "parents" being Kermit the Frog and Laa-Laa.
    • This exchange:
      Luke: (narrating) And then he disappeared, and no one liked him, and he had no friends.
      Kevin: (Fishy Boopkins voice) Noooooo! I-I thought people liked me!
      Luke: Well, uh... vote now! Do you like Fishy Boopkins?
      Kevin: (Fishy Boopkins voice) People love me! Guys, you all love me, right?
      Luke: (beat) Like the video if you hate him.
      Kevin: (Fishy Boopkins voice) Nooooooo! ...That means everyone's gonna dislike it, you know.
      Luke: Dislike it if you hate him as well!
  • Tom Nook's Sick Crib is definitely one of the funniest episodes in the series.
    • Kevin's laughter gets increasingly hysterical as the video goes on, to the point that he starts crying, and openly admits it.
    • Tom Nook's apartment seems nice at first, but throughout the video, it's made more and more clear how shoddy the apartment really is. For one thing, his widescreen TV was stolen from Wal-Mart, the city background is just a cardboard cutout, and Tom Nook doesn't even own the apartment.
    • This exchange:
    Kevin: Why is the gravity so low?
    Luke: (beat) It's Mexico. It's on the other side of the world!note  (Kevin is laughing) It's on the other side of the world, Kevin!
    Kevin: (still laughing) That's a good explanation!
  • Dr. Mario rapping to a dying patient in SUPER DR MARIO.
  • Waluigi and the Great Heist has many great moments, like Waluigi trying to flirt with Aiai and Globox defecating Waluigi out of his ass.

    Meme reaction videos 
  • This video showcases Luke and Kevin watching the WTOL TPS testing video which features the WTOL crew encouraging students to study using various internet slang and memes. Luke compares this to Kevin when he tries to talk to their fans. Offended, Kevin stays silent for the rest of the video and leaves afterward. Luke goes to check on him, but Kevin pulls out a gun and points it at Luke threatening to kill him and then himself. Luke takes the gun away from Kevin and realizes it's fake.

  • This video features Kevin trying to get Luke a girlfriend. Lots of crazy stuff happens, but one of the main highlights is when Luke is trying to find pictures for the dating app, one of the pictures he finds is of ProZD. And he uses it.

How well does it match the trope?
