NextG (real name Matt de Rojas, a.k.a. KT Cannon) is a retired producer of YouTube Poop, known for his titular series of YTP entitled NextG Poop. He was inspired to make the series after gaining a positive reception for a video entitled NextG's Most Random Video Ever!, which is self-described as "A bunch of things compiled into one video, all completely random and stupid." Which sums up the essence of NextG Poop fairly well: sometimes surreal cocktails of clips from television, animation, film, music and plenty of other stuff. It officially debuted on July 20, 2007, and is likely the pioneer of the pooping subgenre "Analogue Poop", for its home video/VHS-esque style and usage of self-archived sourcesnote .
The series officially ended on June 27, 2012, but other poops on the NextG channel continued to be produced, such as:
- Specials; multiple-part poops, allowing for more humor and clips with a longer timeframe. The very first episode of the series was a special, and between the series' airtime a total of 5 specials were produced - NextG's Big Show What a Thrill Congratulations!, NextG (What Doesn't Kill Ya Makes Ya) Poop, NextG Presents...An Hour of Happy!, NextG Poop Remix (a deliberate attempt to make new jokes out of previously-used sources), and Everybody Now! (a 5-part special that's half-NextG Poop, half-YTP collaboration). The truly final poop from NextG as a whole is also a special, "NextG's Ancient Prophecies".
- KYTV; a homage to The BBC series of the same name, simulating a low-budget, technical-difficulty-ridden television network that airs "poopified" game shows.
- In 30 Seconds, 30-second (or slightly more) recaps of NextG Poops.
- NXPQuickie, even shorter NextG Poops.
It all came to an end with NextG's Ancient Prophecies in 2016. While he no longer produces YT Ps, he will still use the channel for archival footage of television from the past as well as future original content.
Tropes related to NextG Poop
- All Just a Dream: "Something to Do with NextG Poop" is revealed to be a wet dream of Napoleon from Animal Farm. This one's Played for Laughs.
- Played completely straight with "NextG's Ancient Prophecies", where at the climax it's seemingly revealed the entire series was a dream from Matt. Then he pops in a tape and it turns out to be the special itself, and it finishes up regardless.
- Bottle Episode: Compared to his other poops, "All Your NextG Poop Are Belong to Pink Boys" is a relatively straight poop of Thomas the Tank Engine, with only a handful of audio edits and not much for visual edits. Justified as this episode is a tribute to the pooping style of the Thomas pooper Captainpinkboy.
- Clumsy Copyright Censorship: Because YouTube muted any episode that had it, in mid-season 3 the theme song was switched from The Rembrandts' "I'll Be There for You" to "Take Me Away" by the Plain White T's. But other than that, there was no other changes to the intro, resulting in issues where the song doesn't sync up with certain parts of the video on-screen. YouTube has since unmuted the episodes, however.
- Content Warnings: One appears on "A NextG Poop...Shaken, Not Stirred." It warns viewers of "overly political content" and tells people to "keep your political opinions where they belong.....NOT HERE!".
- Foreshadowing: Some of the earliest episodes in the series contain clips that would later become fixtures of later episodes.
- Grand Finale: "NextG Poop and the (Supposedly) Last Crusade", ending on a joke lifted from the end of the pilot episode.
- "NextG's Ancient Prophecies" is the true ending to NextG Poop altogether. Both the longest NextG Poop since Everybody Now! and having even more call-backs to earlier poops, it ends on the note that the entire series was a bizarre dream NextG had.
- Mundane Made Awesome: The Wal.
- Or Was It a Dream?: At the end of "NextG's Ancient Prophecies", a particularly bizarre scene with tons of Call Backs to the series' Running Gags is (along with possibly the whole series in general) revealed to be a dream by NextG himself. After he wakes up, he decides to pop in a videotape—which has the special's name on it. After this, it continues on for a few more minutes.
- Overly Long Gag: Played straight, lampshaded and then subverted in "What NextG Poop Says, NextG Poop Does". Matt ends the episode right when he realizes his Bridezillas clip is being shown for too long and things are starting to get out of hand.Matt: Okay, okay, that's enough—Mark, take us outta here. (cut to website promo)Mark: Yeah, I think we stayed on that scene a little bit too long, if you ask me.Matt: Well I didn't know it would break out like that.Mark: That's true.
"To the question.""What.""The answer.""What."
- Plenty of them in "We'll Return Right After We Take a NextG Poop".
- Replaced the Theme Tune: Done three times during the series. First, the show used The Rembrandts' "I'll Be There for You", then used Plain White T's' "Take Me Away", and finally a J-pop theme.
- Relax-o-Vision: "And so Orihime attacked in a scene of such spectacular proportions, it could never in your life be seen in a low-budget poop like this."
- Running Gag: Giving a bonus to the usage of the word "Ass".
- A clip of a shocked boynote with the text "WTF?" at the bottom is used particularly often.
- "Meanwhile, not far away..."
- Series Fauxnale: "NextG Poop and the (Supposedly) Last Crusade" is intended to be the finale of NextG Poop, but he continued making poop-related videos after ending the series.
- Shout-Out: NextG is a big fan of British television and film, and it shows throughout NextG Poop.
- "These are the Voyages of NextG Poop" and the first part of "NextG Poop Remix" both begin with a homage to the start of the special edition DVD of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, in which an incorrect film is played at first and a grumbling, off-screen projectionist takes that film out and puts in the correct film.
- The other NextG series KYTV is based off of the BBC series of the same name.
- Many episode titles are shout outs, such as "The First Rule About NextG Poop Is...".
- The ending of the Grand Finale "NextG's Ancient Prophecies" is a reference to CBS station WDEF who, before signing off in 2009 due to the DTV switch, inexplicably wound up cutting to a live episode of Late Show with David Letterman where Lyle the Intern said "I know where you live, biooooootch!" before cutting to static.
- Spiritual Successor: The Autopilot Series can be considered this towards NextG Poop. As its playlist states, "They're not NextG Poops (or poops of any type, for that matter), but they're not quite like anything else either."
- The Stinger: Used Once per Episode.
- Stupid Statement Dance Mix: A common variant of "(Nonsense) Marvelous Musical Montages".
- Take That!: "Now Remember Billy, Only Retards Wear Their Collars Up" is a gigantic middle finger to YouTube's copyright policy.
- This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: Used in "The NextG Poop NewsHour", where WordGirl tells Jim Lehrer she's "10 and a half, bitch."
