Bunny Meyer, otherwise known by her username Grav3yardgirl, is a lively, slightly insane, and thoughtful YouTuber. Starting off talking about supernatural experiences, she rose to prominence with her most popular series, "Does This Thing Really Work", where she puts infomercial products to the test. Her other content includes beauty videos and vlogs, and occasional serious discussions about her life. While Bunny may be something of a background star, most fellow creators on the website have expressed their enjoyment and support for her content.


Tropes in Bunny's videos include:

  • American Accents: She's actually got a fairly representative Houston Area accent, though it's most obvious when she's agitated or otherwise startled.
  • Big Fancy House: She lives in one, but for the longest time was terrified of showing it for fear that she'd be accused of flexing. Shane Dawson, in his help-oriented collab with her, convinced her that this was the last thing people would be saying and that she needed to be more honest and open about her life.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Does this thing really work?"
    • "Activate Earthworm"- when holding camera down to enter stores during vlogs, with her downward gaze wrinkling her neck like a worm.
    • "Sippy Sippy...aah!"
    • "Basket Toss", which is said when trying to blind toss an item behind her into a shopping basket.
  • Collector of the Strange: She collects antique dolls and their parts, and several other antique oddities besides.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: While Bunny is very smart and articulate, she's also pretty loony and proud of it.
  • Creepy Cemetery: Subverted. She used to hang out in graveyards when she was younger, due to a combination of loneliness and fascination with the past, so her screen name was more in reference to that comforting pastime than for a spooky vibe.
  • Creepy Doll: A large collection of hers, but the only truly creepy one, a disturbingly humanlike plush doll, seemed to be haunted for real and wound up in a museum for creepy objects after she returned it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Somewhat deadpan in her earliest videos, less so these days, but she's as snarky as ever.
  • Epic Fail: These will frequently occur with her product tests, through the product's fault or her own.
  • Fan Community Nickname: Her subscribers and fans are the Swamp Family.
  • Freaky Is Cool: Bunny is an ardent believe in this trope, and the Swamp Family often feels the same with regard to Bunny.
  • Genki Girl: Ya think?
  • Hidden Depths: Bunny has struggled with feelings of isolation and unpopularity, which were frequently self-imposed judgements, and had trouble being real and authentic on camera. She was undergoing severe anxiety and starting to feel depressed about her channel before Shane Dawson, a fan and popular fellow creator, collabed with her and gave her advice to help her evolve and enjoy her work again.
  • Houston: Bunny lives in the glorified suburb of Pearland.
  • Instant Expert: Her boyfriend Dogman is often very skilled with products she's failed with.
  • Large Ham: Look at that image and tell me you're surprised.
  • Nice Girl: She's very lighthearted and kind, and even made an extensive apology in regards to some offense over her distaste for some foreign candies.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Bunny is often charmed and delighted by things most people would find off-putting and creepy, though she does not treat matters of the paranormal lightly.
  • No Indoor Voice: HEY, EVERYBODY, IT'S BUNNY
  • Perky Goth: Subverted. She used to sport a more edgy style and had several paranormal-related videos (there's also her username), but she embraced her energetic side and become a bit less spooky as a result.
  • Running Gag: "Sippy-sippy", the "sassy bun" hairstyle, "basket toss", "earthworm mode", and others.
  • Shout-Out: Her symbol is a winged alligator, and she entices subscribers by saying "give a gator its wings".
  • Swamps Are Evil: She likes this idea, calling her fans the Swamp Family and creating a "Swamp Queen" makeup palette.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Bunny's striking blue eyes, often commented on by fans, and even she has made note of them from time to time.
