Go To

Mongolian Erectile Dysfunction was an animated web short by FatKidWithAJetPak that was uploaded on Newgrounds and YouTube in 2010.

The short is a parody of the classic Tootsie Pop commercial where a boy asks Mr. Owl how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. It begins with Mr. Owl trying to masturbate, only to be interrupted by the boy and to be pestered by him again asking the question of how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.



  • Adaptational Villainy: In the original commercial, Mr. Turtle politely answered the boy that he didn't know how many licks it took to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop and suggested he consult Mr. Owl. Here, Mr. Turtle is portrayed as a pedophile who intended to rape the boy.
  • Artistic License – Biology: The title of the short refers to a condition Mr. Turtle is portrayed as having, which The Stinger explains as being a faulty wiring of the brain that makes one unable to achieve an erection and to instead vomit or empty bowels when sexually aroused.
  • Caught with Your Pants Down: Timmy walks in on Mr. Owl while he's trying to masturbate.
  • Driven to Suicide: In the end, Mr. Owl can't take being asked the question repeatedly any longer and stabs himself in the chest.
  • Named by the Adaptation: While the boy was never named in the original commercial, the short has Mr. Turtle address him as Timmy.

  • No Indoor Voice: Mr. Owl screams all of his dialogue at the top of his lungs.
  • The Stinger: The short ends with a fake dictionary entry explaining what Mongolian Erectile Dysfunction is.
  • Screaming at Squick: Timmy screams and runs away when Mr. Turtle vomits all over his Tootsie Pop.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Mr. Owl cusses a lot in the video, which is especially noticeable because Timmy and Mr. Turtle do not swear at all.
  • Subverted Kids Show: This is a parody of the classic Tootsie Pop commercial that includes such adult content as Mr. Owl attempting to masturbate and constantly swearing as well as Mr. Turtle being portrayed as a pedophile trying to rape the boy.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: Mr. Turtle pukes a lot on-screen because of his Mongolian Erectile Dysfunction condition.
