Go To

Release: November 12, 2013

Focus: Commercials

This review contains examples of:

  • The Cameo: Greg Sestero appears, reprising his role as Mark from The Room.
  • Eagle Land: Parodied with the Denny's pancakes commercial.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: The way the Critic responds to the way that Kix cereal tastes.
  • Manchild: He says this about the Toys "R" Us Kids. He even shows the commercial that showed the kids grown up and noticed how they appeared to be in the very same places as they were in the original commercial several years ago.

  • Mood Whiplash: A rather cheerful Canadian commercial starts off with a baby shower, and ends with "It's a rape whistle." He exemplifies the uneasiness of it all with a skit featuring him and Malcolm on a water cooler, where the Critic talks about bottled mountain water, while Malcolm casually reveals he has pancreatic cancer, to which the Critic can only react with awkward silence before a text appears at the bottom detailing how 45,220 men get the disease in a year, brought to the audience by the "National Buzzkill Institution of Canada". To bring the point home, he also plays "Blame Canada" from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut over the commercial.
    Critic: (grinning broadly) What the fuck, Canada?!
  • Oblivious to Love: The critic theorizes that men can be quite clueless, and can't take a hint when a women isn't interested in them, or tell when they are. Continuing to go after the women who turned them down while remaining clueless to women who are interested in them.

  • Mr. Seahorse: Presumably the Devil at the end of the review.
  • Overly Long Gag: Related to Mood Whiplash above, when the Critic learns that the Canadian PSA is about rape, the Critic sits there in confused silence with a frozen smile on his face for a long time before calling Canada out.
    • Also, the Critic's reaction to the American pancakes commercial.
  • Uncanny Valley: Invoked: He thinks this about the live action Count Chocula.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Anything Rachel!Wicked Witch says, the most noticeable example was "Pop my Ruby Slippers".


How well does it match the trope?
