Web Animation / Welcome to...

Go To
Fuck you, Nathan from school!
Hello, and welcome to TV Tropes! Now that you're a troper, it's time to learn the ins and outs of the site!

Why don't you start out by writing a description for something below?

Welcome to... is a series of videos by Brendan Blaber, each centering on a specific website under the guise of an instructional video for using said site. While it does teach you a lot about the site, most of the videos are dedicated to mocking the hell out of the site and its users.

The videos (all of which can be found here) include:

  • Welcome to DeviantArt!
  • Welcome to Facebook!
  • Welcome to YouTube!
  • Welcome to Twitter!
  • Welcome to Tumblr!
  • Welcome to Vine! (April Fools' Day 2014)
  • Welcome to FanFiction.Net! (and Wattpad)
    • This episode also has a "Welcome To Extras" side video, showing off outtakes and deleted scenes.
  • Welcome to Steam! (April Fools' Day 2015)
  • Welcome to Horror! (Joke Halloween 2015 Special)
  • Welcome to Kickstarter! (premiered at YoumaCon 2015)
  • Welcome to YouTube Comments! (500k Subscriber Special)
  • Welcome to Webcomics! note 

Jello has decided to end the series after Webcomics, in order to focus on his other projects like So This Is Basically..., though he has stated that he'd still do the occasional "Welcome to YouTube Comments!" compilation video.

Great job! Now try adding some tropes! That's what the site's named for, after all.

These are tropes! Anyone can add them, but not many people do it right.

  • Abandoned Info Page: Used as an example of webcomic creator laziness in Webcomics.
  • Accentuate the Negative: The flaws of the sites and their communities are the most-focused on aspect of the series. This is less out of outright hate (usually) and more for humor potential. This is brought to light in YouTube Comments, where one featured comment calls out another comment for not understanding that the series is about pointing out the negative aspects of good websites; Jello proceeds to dub it "Comment of the Year 2015".
  • Alliterative Name: "Predisposition Pete".
  • Alt Text: Webcomics cracks a joke about readers going through an entire comic, only to have to Archive Binge when they realize the comic has rollover text.
  • April Fools' Day:
    • Vine in 2014. It's a five-minute long video... with 6 seconds of of actual content. The rest is Jello throwing some jabs at his fanbase.
    • Steam in 2015. It's made by "Joe" from Vine. He can't animate or commentate well. You should be able to guess how well it goes.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking:
    • Then there's the female host's attempts at insulting other sites:
    "DeviantArt? More like "Grand Theft Art-ro"! Facebook? More like "Flake-book"! 9gag? More like 9... gag... nailed it!"
  • Art Evolution:
    • Youtube saw a significant bump in art quality, with more fluid, defined animation.
    • The concept is actually mentioned by name in Webcomics, when noting how the first page of a webcomic may not match the rest of them. Gunnerkrigg Court is used as an example of this, while shots are taken at Misfile for not doing this.
  • Art Shift:
    • uses a different art style for every story example; "Slash Fiction" has still images with less-cartoony art, "Self-Insert Yaoi" uses Animesque art in a Visual Novel layout (complete with bottom dialogue box), "Creepypasta" has scratchy art using only red and black, and "Wattpad" uses very crude crayon drawings.
    • Webcomics has different art styles for the example comics, though there's not any drastic shifts.
  • Attention Whore: Duck Fayce is a parody of the quintessential Facebook Attention Whore.
  • Author Avatar: JelloApocalypse is seen in Welcome to Tumblr talking into a microphone before he is interrupted by a penguin.
  • Author Filibuster: Jello goes on a humorous one at the end of Webcomics over RPG World's infamous abandonment.
    And if you're lucky, you'll catch up just in time to find the artist abandoned this project years ago and literally stopped drawing it in the hallway to the FINAL BOSS ARGGGHH! ... Eleven years later and I'm still still mad. Lets see what this guy's been up too, anyway. Whaaat? Oh, look at that, he was the art director for Steven Universe. You know what? Good for him. I-It's really good seeing someone put in the time and making their way into the industry today and FINISH YOUR FUCKING WEBCOMIC!
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: A common thing Jello does in his videos.
    • Deviantart
    Which all translates to FUCK OFF.
    • Webcomics has some notable ones.
      Hang on now, are you thinking of giving up?! That's GREAT!
  • Beat Without a "But": In Welcome To YouTube!, when the narrator brings up the topic of paid subscriptions, he says, "Now I know what you're thinking: 'People have to pay to subscribe to me? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard!'". The narrator doesn't follow that up with any benefits and moves on to the next topic.
  • Better than a Bare Bulb: Webcomics brings up the tendency of game-based comics to rely on this.
    Bard: Hark! A save point. How funny it is that I point that out in-universe.
  • Big "NO!": The guide in Facebook does one after seeing the mess that is Duck Fayce's profile page.
  • Biting-the-Hand Humor: YouTube takes the piss out of the website that hosts Jelloapocalypse's videos.
  • Blush Sticker:
    • Shown repeatedly in Tumblr, most noticeably on the female host.
    • The "Self-Insert Yaoi" segment of deliberately overuses them. At one point, they even shoot off of a character's face.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick:
    • Tumblr recommends you upload videos to YouTube, Dailymotion, or X-Videos instead of Tumblr itself.
    • In Tumblr, the self-diagnosis segment describes potential symptoms of anxiety, OCD, and... lycanthropy.
  • Broken Record: Used during Tumblr to show off how terrible the site's video player is.
  • Cat Girl: Marissa-chan.
  • Cherry Blossoms: These appear out of nowhere in "Our Duet" when Gakupo is confessing his feelings to Len-chan.
  • Crack Pairing: Invoked in the Tumblr episode, wherein coming up with unusual fandom ships is suggested as a potential source of upvotes. This leads the main character to attempt shipping The Oncler with either the Lorax, "Ginger Swift" or "inexplicably Gene Wilder", before eventually just settling on shipping the Oncler with himself.
  • Credits Gag: The Welcome to Vine credits list JelloApocalypse under the title "Handsome" four times in a row.
  • Cultural Translation: In the yaoi story "Our Duet," Len Kagamine is eating onigiri on a hotdog bun.
  • Digital Avatar: The videos feature simple colorless avatars — known as "pegs" — to represent most of their characters, many of which appear to have interchangeable features la Mr. Potato Head toys.
  • The Ditz: When WTF Guy asks Duck Fayce what her dead classmate's favorite color was, she guesses rice.
  • Don't Like? Don't Read!: Used jokingly in's opening to deter haters in the comments, and again in the "Self-Insert Yaoi" fanfic example for a "Yaoi Warning".
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Earlier episodes had very little animation, and used backgrounds of the sites much more often (later episodes used original backgrounds or just blank space). The pegs also looked slightly different.
  • Exact Words: Welcome to Facebook has WTF Guy sarcastically suggest to Duck Fayce that she should like and share a page as she would have a chance to change the world. The screen then displays "0% is a chance" in brackets.
  • Face Fault: Lampshaded by Marissa-chan: "We fell down like in anime when there is a joke or a baka."
  • Fan Fic:
    • Mocked in DeviantArt:
    "...many people also post their writings in the Literature section, because the internet's number one art website is the best place to go to post literature. Here you can find everything. Fan fiction, poetry, original screenplays, fan fiction, comedic writing, non-fiction, fan fiction, and erotic fan fiction. And it doesn't matter if your writing isn't very good and you're 'soory you don't have time to correct the misspells, because someone in the DeviantArt community will always be amazed that you were able to put words in the box."
    • Also mocked to hell and back in, well, Welcome to
  • Fanservice: Most of the One Direction story. Specifically, Niall is shirtless and Zayn is wearing a suit and has a rose in his teeth. Also, some of the thumbnails contain fanservice in a way.
  • First World Problems: Starbucks raised the price of Duck Fayce's favorite drink by TWO WHOLE DOLLARS.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus:
    • All the videos have this somewhere or other, but Twitter is filled with them.
    • In the Welcome to Fanfiction.Net video, the narrator gets outraged with some rude criticism of his fan-fiction; reading it shows it's actually some pretty tactful constructive criticism.
    • During the brief slideshow of gaming-based webcomics, The Order of the Stick is shown twice.
  • Fun T-Shirt: Subverted in the Welcome to creepypasta: in a lazy attempt to depict cool college students, the art shows the two roommates in the story wearing shirts that say "COOL." In the twist ending, you are a skeleton also wearing the "COOL" t-shirt.
  • Fun with Acronyms:
    • Facebook has the titular program: Welcome To Facebook.
    • Subverted with "D.O.N.T." from YouTube, which stands for "Doooooon't comment, ever".
  • Fun with Homophones:
    • "Theirs know too wheys a bout it.", from
    • "Grow a pair! #homophones" is a tweet featured alongside the image of a manly peg with a pear on his crotch.
  • Furry Fandom: Mocked several times in Tumblr. Most notable is an otherkin griping at the narrator when he says "every human" when she's so "clearly" a wolf in a human's body.note 
  • Gender Bender:
    • In the "Creepypasta" segment of, the main character's roommate seamlessly changes from male to female due to a spelling mistake.
    • In "Our Duet," author Marissa-chan puts Rin Kagamine in the bath scene instead of Len for one sentence, though still refers to her as male.
  • Get Out!: Said in Tumblr after the narrator questions if the peg is a white cisgender straight male (a parody of social justice warriors). Also said to the viewer at the end of Twitter.
  • Gratuitous Japanese:
    • Parodied in DeviantArt, as the narrator states that the site has its own language program, where you can learn words like "desu", "kawaii", "sugoi", "nii-chan", "neko", and "waifu":
    "...which all roughly translate to FUCK OFF."
    • Excessively mocked in the self-insert yaoi story in Welcome to
      • Kaito makes his friends bento boxes for dinner. Marissa-chan comments that they're "watashi's favorite!"
      • "Sugoi" is used as a verb.
      • The honorific used for Len changes each time, eventually to "nii-chan."
      • The story ends with a "tsuzuku!!" in the bottom-right corner.
  • Gross-Up Close-Up:
    • One section in Tumblr has a penguin trying to convince others that it's going extinct, before revealing that it was a lie:
    "...but one day [cue close up] IT MIGHT NOT BE."
    • Duck Fayce has one in Facebook after the Narrator deletes someone from her friend-list.
    • Twice in; once with "Ally" in one of the stories, and again with The Author/Scary Ostrich Man at the very end.
  • Heroic Mime: Made fun of in Welcome to
    Olimar looked back with his Muppet face and did not say any words because he did not know how.
  • Hermaphrodite: A peg in Tumblr tries to claim to be this by slapping a picture of a vagina over his crotch. The narrator tells him that the term is racist (somehow), telling him to call himself "vagin-abled" instead.
  • Hilarious Outtakes: Included in the extras video for
  • Hive Mind: One segment from Tumblr has the Delightful Children from Down the Lane complaining about discrimination towards these.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • One of the listed steps to BECOME FAMOUS! in YouTube is to slap a pair of big cartoon boobs on the thumbnail of your videos — the illustration being on the thumbnail for the video itself, of course. Something similar occurs in Tumblr.
      • In the same video, the narrator mocks the idea of reminding people to like and subscribe in videos. As he says this, a scene with a "Like" and "Subscribe" button (the latter links to Jelloapocalypse's channel page) appears, and the buttons are emphasized while a peg representing the narrator attempts to casually drink a glass of water and drag the scene out.
    • In the Kickstarter video, the narrator mocks users who use the site to ask viewers to fund their games and products. By the end of the video, the narrator, fully aware of all the things he made fun of, sincerely asks fans to help fund Seduce Me 2: The Demon War, a game he's staring in. Ironically, the game did get funded.
    • The trend continues in Webcomics, in which Jello plugs his (at the time unreleased) webcomic CorNUCOpia at the end of his video about the problems with webcomics.
  • I'll Be in My Bunk: Heavily implied at the end of Steam, after "Joe" leaves to do do something... while taking his drawing of a shirtless, muscular guy with a steam factory head with him. He's not very subtle about it.
  • Informed Self-Diagnosis: Parodied in Tumblr:
    "Do you worry about tests sometimes? You have ANXIETY DISORDER! Do you touch the doorknob before opening doors? Then you've got CRIPPLING OCD! Do you sometimes itch yourself in public? Then it looks like you're TURNING INTO A WOLF!"
  • Inherently Funny Words: Duck Fayce's "QUACK!" in the Facebook video gets funnier every time. Especially because it's an adult male's voice attached to a 13-year-old girl.
  • The Internet Is for Porn: Jokes about porn or erotica on the internet are made often. A particularly notable one in Tumblr, when the propeller-beanie peg is searching for art in some tags:
    Narrator: *at a door* Knock knock!
    Propeller Peg: Who's there?
    Narrator: PORN! *hundreds of "boobies and tits" crash through the door, crushing Propeller Peg*
  • Lame Pun Reaction: The narrator in Tumblr recommends pandering to a fandom - or "pandom". Cue several "boo"'s flying across the screen.
  • Mood Whiplash: At the end of YouTube Comments Part 2, we get a comment that appears to be a rather... passionate fan of the series. Which then ends with "Make a Welcome to Steam."
  • The '90s:
    "Don't like that picture! Everybody remembers Hey Arnold!, it's not an old show.note "
    "You are not a 90's kid, you were born in '99."
  • No Yay: In the Youtube Comments video, one of the commenters suggests shipping Jello with pLasterbrain. Jello politely responds not to since they're siblings. invoked
    • In the Welcome To Youtube Comments (2016) video, one of the commenters defies his wishes.
      4pawed gaming: I found out that you and plastic are siblings. LET THE SHIPPING BEGIN
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer:
    • In Tumblr, the URL the Wheel Of Shipping comes up with for a blog about shipping the Once-ler with himself is "". For the record, it does.
    • One of the Welcome to Twitter tweets quotes a 0/10 review of The Iron Giant with the footnote: "An actual review I saw for 'The Iron Giant' on Rotten Tomatoes once."
    • YouTube Comments opens with a disclaimer that all the comments featured are real.
  • Non Sequitur:
    "Harry, I made you MUFFINS!" Even though that is so not what they were talking about!
    • Joe's various stories as he tries to fill up time.
    "One time, an armadillo winked at me."
  • Number of the Beast: One of the creepypasta clichés mocked in, where the narrator mentions his opponent having 666 Pokemon
  • Occidental Otaku: The more negative kind of them is a frequent target of mockery in the series. Most prevalent in Deviantart (which mocks using Japanese words in place of English for no real reason) and in's "Self-Insert Yaoi" example (which is a demonstration of what happens when you cram too many anime elements into a story).
  • Oddball in the Series: Two of them, not counting the joke episodes:
    • Facebook is the only video in the series with a storyline.
    • Twitter doesn't explain/mock the site or the users (apart from a comment near the end), mostly just being a slideshow of illustrations for the tweets Jello made around the time.
  • Perfectly Cromulent Word: "Balthd" is used at one point in Fanfiction.
  • Political Correctness Is Evil: Tumblr's social justice warriors are repeatedly made fun of in its accompanying video.
  • "Psycho" Strings: Used at the end of Facebook, when Duck Fayce is adding the Narrator to her friend-list.
  • Precision F-Strike: Generally once a video (except for Facebook).
  • Product Placement: Parodied in YouTube Comments, where a comment accuses Jello of being a sellout; Jello responds in another comment by advertising his JelloApocalypse Brand Slippers, which proceed to take up the entire screen in the video.
  • Punctuation Shaker: Parodied in the RPG webcomic in Webcomics, where the unseen villain's name is "A'pos'tra'fee'ica".
  • Punny Name:
    • Mrs. Preecay's Pre-K.
    • Duck Fayce, the duck with a permanent duckface in Welcome to Facebook. Judging by her Facebook email address, "Duck" is short for Dulcinea.
  • Recurring Character:
    • In, when Scary Ostrich Man holds up a picture of "Nathan from school," you can see it's the same peg wearing sunglasses that was featured in Welcome to Youtube. The sunglasses peg later features prominently in Kickstarter.
    • The nerdy peg in Welcome to DeviantArt tries submitting her "literature" to the website's fanfiction category and appears again writing stories for Wattpad in Welcome to
    • Predisposition Pete appears as part of the "being sad" sequence in Welcome to Tumblr and later in the angry mob confronting Jello in a bathrobe about a pro-Republican post. He's also a history teacher and a therapist in Welcome to Twitter.
    • The propeller peg whom the narrators try to guide in Welcome to Tumblr can also be seen in Welcome to Youtube in the section about comments, saying "I like your ghost costume" to a KKK member and in Welcome to Twitter selling lemon grenades and later pointing to a sales graph. He's also in Mrs. Preecay's Pre-K class and finds naked pictures of George Costanza while hunting for Easter eggs.
    • One tweet merely reads "Girls" with a background filled with several posing Duck Fayces.
    • The tattoo artist peg drawing semi-colons in Welcome to also brought the alphabet to Pre-K show and tell in Twitter.
  • Re-Cut: Facebook got an HD reupload, which, in addition to higher quality, edits some clips and adds a joke that was outdated due to updates on Facebook.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Mocked several times, most explicitly in DeviantArt. All of the fake fanfics in FanFiction.Net contain this to varying degrees, with the animations illustrating the typos as well.
    • Marissa and the Vocaloids eat in a diner called Vocaloid Dinner. A flickering neon sign on the outside of the building emphasizes the typo.
    • Ally has low self-estem, illustrated by a twig sticking out of the ground. In the Welcome to outtakes video, Jello specifically corrects Larry Bundy Jr. when he pronounces the phrase correctly.
      • Subverted in the same sentence, however, in that he pronounces "anorexia" correctly when it's spelled "anorexica."
  • Running Gag:
    • Youtube repeatedly mentions "BECOME FAMOUS!" as a goal. It comes back for a quick gag in Kickstarter.
    • Several commenters interrupt the narrator in Youtube with the phrase "like if _____" before they're cussed out.
    • The song used in the "AMV" in Welcome to Youtube, "Pocky Pocky Mr. Sweetie," appeared again as an elevator music arrangement as the music during the self-insert yaoi.
    • "YouTriedth place" is used in both Welcome to Youtube and in the Welcome to Twitter toothpaste gurgling contest as a placeholder general rankings beneath first.
    • The artist in the beginning of Welcome to Tumblr wears the same kind of glasses as the "BECOME FAMOUS!" peg once she gains popularity.
    • In Welcome to, a person named Nathan is frequently blamed for the authors' own shortcomings.
    • The second part of YouTube Comments has several people demanding Welcome to Steam be made, eventually leading to such a comment appearing on Welcome to Steam itself (albeit most likely a a joke).
      • In the first part, there's an absurd number of comments asking what the music that plays at the ends of the videos is, apparently from people not bothering to read the credits to find out.
      • The D.O.N.T. rule from YouTube gets brought up a lot.
  • Said Bookism: Parodied extensively in, especially in the deleted purple prose story shown in the extras video. Plenty of the "said" substitutions also try (and fail) to verb the nouns.
  • Script Fic: Parodied in "Our Duet", where the story temporarily becomes one.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: The "Wattpad" story example in uses "Mr. Noitcerid Eno" as a code-name for One Direction.
  • Series Hiatus: invoked The term "hiatus" is brought up in Webcomics as meaning "an extended period of laziness".
    Narrator: Hiatuses typically last between two months and forever.
  • Self-Deprecation: Youtube jokingly suggests making an Abridged Series as a way to attract attention from the anime community. The narrator then sarcastically says "Those are always a success!," providing a link via annotation which reads: "What loser would even try something like that, am I right?". The link leads to Jello's own Abridged Series.
  • Self-Insert Fic: Mocked thoroughly in, with all but one of the example fics containing a narrator obviously meant as a stand-in for the author. Most evident in the last fic, titled "One Direction goes One Direction And That Direction is Towards my Vagina."
    • Scary Ostrich Man cautions against using an Author Avatar name too similar to your own, lest Nathan from school find out that it's a self-insert.
    • Also in Welcome to, Jello as the narrator says to think of a handsome name for your titular character, then promptly types "Jello."
  • Shipping: invoked Mocked often.
    • In DeviantArt:
    "Finally, the world can see your opinions on which Professor Layton characters will make the best couple."note 
    • The AMV explanation in Youtube mentions showing off your favorite and/or imaginary Hetalia: Axis Powers pairings in them.
    • In Tumblr, a "Wheel Of Shipping" is used to determine someone to ship the Once-ler with for a blog. It lands on the Once-ler. Which may still be better than Gene Wilder, another option.
    • Given that it involves fanfic, Fanfiction.Net contains a lot of jokes about it.
  • Shout-Out: Plenty.
  • Show, Don't Tell: Parodied inversion in the fanfiction video.
  • Signature Headgear: Discussed in Webcomics, which brings up the oddly common "webcomic artist hat".
  • Slash Fic: Parodied repeatedly in Welcome to
    • Oliver Twist: The Twisted Fates is "rated T for FaginxDodger!;)" which one of the reviewers complains about.
    • The bucktoothed peg with glasses writes a story for Wattpad called Harry Styles and the Sorcerer's Stone also gay"
    • Len Kagamine and Camui Gakupo are paired together in the Self-Insert Yaoi. The story is done in the style of a visual novel, and the player deliberates on the main menu between New Game and "Naked Mode."
    • Ally's boss can't decide which of his four male secretaries is Mr. Noitcerid Eno because "all of them was [his] boyfriend." Later, the members of One Direction start kissing and touching each other's butts (but they still like Ally the best).
    • The story explicitly labeled as slash fiction, however, clearly features a heterosexual couple (Female Wii Fit Trainer and Olimar), which may have been the point.
  • Stylistic Suck:
    • The fanfic segments in Welcome to were actually written by JelloApocalypse et al.
      • Also in Welcome to, an excerpt of the Oliver Twist story is shown, and the grammar of which leaves much to be desired.
      • The narration, clearly supposed to be a guide written by a fanfic author, has tons of clearly intentional examples. A notable one from the beginning: "Let's start with the basics. Because where else would we start, the acidics? AUTHOR'S NOTE: That was a chemistry joke!" note  Mistakes like that are peppered throughout the "guide".
    • All of Steam. It lacks animations, being made by drawing on papers, and it focuses on "Joe", who's trying to make his own video due to Jello not making one. Same goes for Horror.
    • Duck Fayce's entire profile in Facebook.
  • Suddenly Shouting: Occasionally in the videos. Webcomics has a good one.
  • Take That!: The videos are mostly made of these towards popular sites and users.
    • Through the whole series, many, many potshots are taken at the very concept of "micro-blogging".
    • DeviantArt mocks people who overuse Japanese terms, inflation artists, and shippers.
    • Facebook mocks people who whine about their (very simple) problems on Facebook, along with people who take bad photos and don't admit it, people who friend people they barely know and refuse to unfriend anyone, and people who misuse the site in general.
    • YouTube mocks people who make comments about the like/dislike bar, comments that say "Thumbs up if [X] brought you here", users that upload certain types of videos, and Youtube's copyright system, among other things. Specific channels that get a Take That! against them include Fred, The Annoying Orange, Pony.MOV, Ray William Johnson, and PewDiePie.
      • Rebecca Black's "Friday" has negative 156 video likes... somehow.
      • Don't worry about your Let's Play videos not becoming popular. You can always rely on Machinima to pick you up, because "Those guys have NO standards."
    • Twitter only gets 140 letters into the video before cutting out. The rest of the video is a slideshow of nonsensical tweets made by Jello himself, ending with "Get Off Twitter". It appears to be a Take That! against Twitter's very concept.
    • Tumblr mocks fandom, night bloggers who post Flame Bait, people who reblog important causes without seeing if said causes are real or not, and especially social justice warriors.
    • Vine pretends to be 6.5 seconds long, ending with "and that's it". Instead of taking any more piss out of Vine specifically, the rest consists of Jello himself talking to "Joe" and taking the piss out of his own commenters and their suggestions for future videos.
    • (and Wattpad) mocked the huge grammatical errors some of the authors make, Mary/Gary Sues, ripping off another person's works, and self-insert fics. They also like to make fun of Occidental Otaku, like Deviantart before it.
    • Kickstarter mocks how many projects overhyped their products, overprice their pledges to backers, the product arriving way past the due date, the finished product not having the features that were promised and some cases, cheated their backers of their money.
      • Specifically, a lot of mocking is directed at Mighty No. 9 and its infamously controversial Kickstarter campaign and development. There's also a minor jab at people shoehorning Shovel Knight into their kickstarted games, and a more joking one at the Homestuck video game Kickstarter.
    • invoked Webcomics mocks a lot of the general unprofessionalism with webcomics, such as lack of updates, inability to take criticism, bad art, and completely unoriginal works.
  • Take That, Audience!: The "Welcome To Youtube Comments" videos has various voice actors read off the comments from his videos and just riff on how stupid many of them are. Some comments speak for themselves, but others have other commenters totally wreck them in response.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics:
    • Duck Fayce in Facebook wears a bow.
    • The Shia LaBeouf fan peg has a large purple bow and no other discriminate female features.
    • Two monkeys in Welcome to Tumblr are given a top hat and a pink bow to depict men and women, respectively.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Most of the fanbases listed in Tumblr had an iron grip on the website in the time period that it was made... The Angry Beavers did not.
  • Time Skip: The titular guide in Facebook is deactivated a minute into the video by Duck Fayce, and reawakens four months later to find that she's utterly ruined her profile page.
  • Title Drop: Near the beginning of every video.
  • Token Evil Teammate: A trend joked about in Webcomics: "I hope we aren't killed by our comically villainous teammate!" For bonus points, said teammate is a Captain Ersatz of Black Mage.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior:
    • Duck Fayce is only 13 in the video, yet parties and gets drunk with her friends and is apparently a huge slut, to the point where she's already pregnant.
    • Ally in is heavily implied to be the 14-year old author's self-insert. She writes about One Direction having sex with her, but her complete lack of sexual knowledge makes it pretty apparent that she's a child who doesn't know what the hell she's doing.
  • Twist Ending: Parodied at the end of the "Creepypasta" fic in The twist: you were the main characters (both of them), so you became a skeleton. Then you wrote the fanfic you just read.
  • Two Gamers on a Couch: Naturally torn into for Webcomics:
    Brunette Male Gamer: I like this game!
    Blond Male Gamer: Pfft! I don't like this game!
    Brunette Male Gamer: I'm the upbeat, naive one!
    Blond Male Gamer: I'm the straight-laced, cynical one.
  • Unreliable Narrator: In the creepypasta, the author claims to live alone at first, but suddenly acquires a roommate halfway through, who then changes genders as the author forgets again. He also explains that Etsy is just "hipster eBay" and refers to his Gameboy Advance as a Playstation. Oh, and the roommates are able to load up the game while seemingly forgetting that the author just broke it in half.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: The protagonist of the "Creepypasta" story in acts pretty casually to seeing several warning signs that his game isn't right. Likely a mockery on the many creepypastas that could've been avoided had people stopped being ignorant earlier.
    Creepypasta Protagonist: *after seeing the game spell "your dead" with Unowns* Preety suspicion," I think but probably just something in my eye???
  • Viral Marketing: invoked Parodied. All of the tweets in Welcome to Twitter were actual tweets on Jello's twitter.
  • Visual Pun:
    • Several installments represent "boobies" and "tits" with the respective birds.
    • In Welcome to Youtube, Veteran users of the website are called "old tubers" and represented by an elderly potato. Old Tuber is shown being sliced open on a cutting board when the narrator talks about cooking shows.
    • The user in Facebook is an anthropomorphic duck and is literally named "Duck Fayce".
    • Twitter shows "hash tags" — that is, tags that have been hashed. Also, during the extended post-credits bloopers, one tweet reads "grill up some hash and then tag it!"
    • Predisposition Pete gets off on seeing a banana next to a flower in Welcome to DeviantArt.
