La Lista Tonta ("The Silly List") was a comedy show presented as a music hits chart show that ran on Spain's version of Comedy Central from 2014 to 2015. Host Quequé introduced music videos by a colorful cast of artists who performed comedic songs.

Tropes seen on this show:

  • Anachronism Stew: The two players in the chess match of "Enrócate conmigo" have their respective flags on top of the table. This wouldn't be much of a problem except it's Kruchov from the Soviet Union vs Petrov from Ukraine.

  • Badass Boast: This line during GMZ's rap song "Llave Allen":
    My Allen key beats MacGyver's jackknife.
  • The Cameo: Mr. Spock appears twice on the video for "Enrócate conmigo" for no real reason other than being mentioned twice in the lyrics... for no real reason other than fitting the rhyme.
  • Character Blog: Every single character had his or her own Twitter feed.
  • Coattail-Riding Relative: Defied by Rui Santamaría. He rose to fame by winning a TV talent show, but nobody takes him seriously after it surfaced that he had family connections within the channel. He's still out to prove that he can build a succesful career in his own right.
  • Enforced Method Acting: In-Universe example, and of course Played for Laughs. In "Anormal", Alex Young explains that, when he has to cry in the videos, a member of the filming crew steps in to wax his scrotum.

  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Apparently everyone hates working with Nacho Visión, and the artists who collaborate with him often leave him behind when they get their big break.
  • Gratuitous English: Big Selfie insists in singing in English because he believes it's so much cooler... even if his actual grasp of the language is questionable, to say the least.
  • Hollywood Nerd: The chess players in "Enrócate conmigo" fit to a T. For starters, there's the fact that they're not just good at chess, they're two pro players in a world championship match. And then, they're played by actors who look like they probably are somewhat attractive once you get past the Nerd Glasses, the sweaters and the occasional Overly Nervous Flop Sweat.
  • Kiss Diss: Mireia shows how to execute a variation of this, which is actually known in Spanish as 'doing the cobra' (dodging the kiss by tilting your neck as far backwards as possible), in the video for "Cobra Dance".
  • Mundane Made Awesome:

    • At first, the music video for Mireia's "Enrócate conmigo" makes the world chess championship look like the event of the century, even if the game is clearly being played in front of a crowd of zero. Eventually subverted as even Mireia herself is getting bored with the slow pace of the match.
    • "Llave Allen" is essentially a rap ode to how awesome and useful the Allen key is.
    You'll be able to make cathedrals with your hands
    Gaudí didn't have one and he ain't finished yet
    [...]
    IKEA is my sacred temple, I'm a God and the Allen key is my hammer of Thor
  • Noodle Implements: Toward the end of the "Llave Allen" video, several people ask GMZ for help, and he simply tells them not to worry because he's got an Allen key. How exactly can it be any use in rescuing a cat from a tree or curing the issues of someone who hasn't taken a poo in five days is never explained.
  • Older Than They Look: It's explained that Alex Young had a lot of surgery to look younger. Must have worked, because he certainly doesn't look 45.
  • Overly Nervous Flop Sweat: Exaggerated in Mireia's "Mojada". Mireia details how she doesn't even need to be nervous for it to happen: just a really hot day can make her sweat like the Flood. In the lyrics she claims to have drowned a guy in an elevator in an August afternoon.
  • Primal Scene: Rui Santamaría's song "No podía imaginarme" is about that time he caught his parents doing the deed.
  • Sex with the Ex: Mixed in with some Slap-Slap-Kiss in Cindy Blog's "El síndrome", as she tells the story of having to meet her ex to bring him some stuff he left behind at her house, and after bickering during a game of Who's Who, they ended up having sex, much to her later regret.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Alex Young and Rui Santamaría are introduced as bitter rivals.
  • That Syncing Feeling: During the first chorus of "Anormal", Alex Young admits (still in song) that he hasn't really sung a note of the song, and the voice we've been hearing is from some random guy who gets paid by the hour to do it. Then we're treated to a glimpse of his actual (nonexistent) singing skills.
  • Visual Pun: The chorus of "Anormal" starts with the words (translated from Spanish): "I'm abnormal, I'm just a pretty face staring at the infinity..." Cut to a crewman yelling at Alex to look at a paper with the infinity sign drawn on it.
