  • The chorus of "Pussy":
    You've got a pussy!
    I have a dick-ah!
    So what's the problem?
    Let's do it quick!
    So take me now before it's too late
    Life's too short so I can't wait
    Take me now, oh don't you see
    • Another possible contender from that song would be the totally random shouts of "GERMANEEEEEEE!" later in the song. Also the goofy-ass grin on Paul's face as he's having sex with 'his' model.
    • Nearly all the English lyrics are funny. The intro goes like this:
    Too big
    Too small
    Size does matter after all
    • Also:
    Too tall
    Too short
    Doesn't matter, one size fits all
    • "Blitzkrieg mit dem Fleischgewehr" and "steck Bratwurst in dein Sauerkraut" are also contenders.
    • Hell the entire video can be counted as one, being a ridiculous, over-the-top parody of porn stereotypes, complete with goofy faces and cheesy lyrics.

    • The early demo version is even funnier, because it lacks the self-awareness of the final version, with much more dramatic music, but entirely in English, making it even more absurd because it's taking itself seriously.
  • A couple of scenes from the "Amerika" video — one where the band members are holding hands and dancing around the American flag, and the scene immediately after when they're all standing in a cheerleader pyramid. All while wearing space suits. On the moon.
    • Plus, the video juxtaposes the song's guitar solo... to one of the band playing a Pinball machine, with the music set to the sound effects of the pinball game. Again, on the moon.
    • The chorus though: It's "WE'RE ALL LIVING IN AMERIKA, AMERIKA IST WUNDERBAR!" except for the last two times. In the second-to-last time is WE ARE LIVING IN AMERIKA, COCA COLA, WONDERBRA!, and the last time it is sung, it becomes "WE'RE ALL LIVING IN AMERIKA, COCA COLA, SOMETIMES WAR!"
  • The "simulated sodomy" at "Bück dich" stage show.
    • The "Bück dich" stage show is taken Up to Eleven in the Made in Germany tour. It starts off with Schneider abusing the other band members and ends with Till squirting his dildo right into Schneider's face.

    • This "Bück dich" soap.
  • The "Keine Lust" video. It has the band after they... put on a few pounds (except Flake) playing the song. It's just as funny as you'd imagine.
  • "Haifisch". It puts The "Fun" in "Funeral"!
    • At the start, the rest of the band take out a photo of the group with Till's face cut out... and start putting other metal vocalists in the spot. Then they pull out a picture of James Hetfield and seem to reach a consensus. They do all of this at the church during the funeral.
    • Richard, Ollie, Flake and Schneider are all thinking about how they would have killed Till... then it cuts to what Paul's thinking about...
    • During the fight scene, keep an eye on Ollie and Schneider. While Richard and Paul are going nuts and beating the crap out of each other the other two are just sort of weakly shoving each other around.

    • Partway through the fight, a little girl picks up two bloody teeth and excitedly holds them up for her mother to see.
    • The ending. Flake falls onto the coffin and breaks the lid... but there's no body inside. Cut to a Hawaiian beach...
  • Also, "Das Kleines Ton", a video of Rammstein's Live aus Berlin performance... set to the Mexican cumbia song "El Sonidito", and perfectly synchronized with the band's moves, to boot!
  • Schneider's trollface at the end of this video after irritating Till is priceless.
  • Flake struggling to carry his surfboard, only to have it stolen by one of the beach girls in the "Mein Land" video.
  • The "Mein Teil" stage show, which was overhauled from its original version where Till would cook Flake with a flamethrower. In the new version, Till discovers that Flake survived his initial attempts at roasting him and is no worse for wear... so he simply goes back and grabs a bigger flamethrower.
  • As shown in the Völkerball DVD, Till decides to do a bit of ad-libbing while performing at a club in Japan. During "Mein Teil" — which is about a cannibal cooking and eating someone — Till interrupts himself while singing a verse to point at Flake and exclaim "Sushi!"
  • Watching Flake's dance number in "Weisses Fleisch" is... a unique experience.
  • Take a moment to browse through their wonderfully diverse range of official merchandise. "Mein Teil" place mat, anyone? Or how about a Rammstein toaster?
  • In 2016, during performances of "Du riechst so gut", instead of "Der Wahnsinn", Richard would take a minute instead to sing in a light voice "Ya sexy motherfucker~" which is very out of nowhere.
  • The dancing and jazz hands displayed by the riot police at the end of the "Radio" music video.
  • Flake getting left behind with the natives in the "Ausländer" video. And then he becomes chief for some reason...
