Non mais t'as vu ce que t'écoutes, abbreviated as NMT, is a French Video Review Show focusing on Pop Music, created and hosted by LinksTheSun.

The first episode came in 2011, in which he analyzed the song "Celui" from Colonel Reyel. In it, he provided critical commentary on the song, granting it points for every lyric he found good, resulting on a final grade out of 20. The concept went on for four episodes, before coming to a stop. It didn't come back until late 2013, in an entirely new format: the grading system was dropped entirely, and the humor relied more on comedic skits performed by Links and his brothers. A grading system was later reintroduced, but represented more of a global appreciation of the song.

NMT episodes follow a certain number of set rules: Links only talks about the lyrics themselves (thus excluding the music video), he can only criticize one song per album, the song has to be in French, and it has to be part of the current Top 50 best sales. Though the rules have been broken on occasion, they serve as a pretty solid guideline.


     List of songs criticized on NMT: 

  • "Celui", Colonel Reyel
  • "Blue Orchids", White Stripes
  • "Seemann", Ramstein
  • "La rumeur", Christophe Maé
  • "Bella", Maître Gims
  • "On ira", Zaz
  • "Game Over", Vitaa (featuring Maître Gims)
  • "Formidable", Stromae
  • "Dernière danse", Indila
  • "Madame Pavoshko", Black M
  • Disney songs
  • "Toute la vie", Les Enfoirés
  • "Magic in the Air", Magic System
  • "Est-ce que tu m'aimes", Maître Gims
  • "Toujours debout", Renaud
  • "Je suis", BigFlo & Oli
  • "Wesh alors", Jul
  • French Songs: The Moment It Screwed Upnote 
  • "Despacito", Luis Fonsi (April Fools' Day episode)
  • "Bella Ciao", Naestro (featuring Maître Gims, Vitaa, Slimane, and Dadju)
  • Several songs by Charles Aznavour

NMT provides examples of:

  • Accentuate the Negative: Links will usually disregard positive elements for humorous purpose. In the "Est-ce que tu m'aimes" Commentary, he even regrets that his NMT persona can't be positive towards Maître Gims and pushed him to be harder on the lyrics.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: In the episode on Disney songs, David sings a literal translation of "A Whole New World". Obviously, it doesn't fit the rhythm of the song at all.
  • Butt-Monkey: Jeremy. If there's a joke that involves Slapstick, he will be at the other end of the stick.
  • The Cameo:
    • BigFlo & Oli make an appearence at the end of the episode on their song "Je suis".
    • Advertisement:
    • The show itself in the 50/50 on Les Nouvelles Aventures d'Aladin (The New Adventures of Aladin) for a few minutes, because the movie in question has a song.
  • Captain Obvious: The professor explaining due to the eyelid being mostly opaque, one cannot see with his eyes closed. He then lampshades that he's not sure there really was a need for him to explain that.
  • Catchphrase:
  • Cerebus Syndrome: The episode on Charles Aznavour is a lot less funny and a lot more personal.
  • Grammar Nazi: Links frequently corrects grammar mistakes from the singers he talks about.
  • Heroic BSoD: Links reaction when he sees that "Madame Pavoshko" was released under the "WATI B" label.
  • Large Ham: Several of the characters played by Links' brothers, David and Jeremy, during the comedy skits.
  • Literal Genie: In Bella, Maître Gims declares he'd "like to be the chair on which she sits"... And gets his wish granted.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Cooking Breton wafers in "Magic in the air".
  • Running Gag:
    • "Who picks "Master" as their nickname?"
  • Self-Deprecation: The end of the Je suis video. After the most positive review featured in the show so far, the video switches to BigFlo & Oli reminding themselves to send money to Links.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Every episode includes a reference to Doctor Who.
    • In the Game Over episode, Links starts talking to an alternate version of himself, just like Karim Debbache in Crossed. It gets lampshaded:
      Alt-Links: You're plagiarizing Crossed. Karim Debbache show on
      Links: No, no, I'm not plagiarizing Crossed, it's a shout-out... an homage... You know what, shut up.
    • In the "Madame Pavoshko" episode, Links lists all of the ways Black M could've reacted to the teachers remarks, in a sequence clearly inspired by the famous "nose speech" from Cyrano de Bergerac.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis:
    • Links once called Master Gims "the Master to [Links'] Doctor".
    • Tragédie and more specifically their song Hey oh, first mentionned during the Magic System video, then explored in the French songs one.
  • Something Completely Different: The alternate review of Jul's "Wesh alors", which barely approached the song and instead berated negative critics attacking both the song and the singer, while the main review featured the usual snarky comments by LinksTheSun.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Links' reaction to Indila's interviews
    Links: Do you also shit butterflies?
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Par for the course for a Caustic Critic, but the speech against Black M's irresponsible lyrics deserves a special mention.


How well does it match the trope?
