Not Literally Productions was a YouTube group that made fandom-themed videos between 2011 and 2014. They are best known for their song "I Ship It," which has become known as a shipping anthem. In addition, they made many other parody songs, and 3 series of question-advice videos: Ask Hogwarts, Ask the Doctor, and Ask Westeros.

- Ships That Pass in the Night: The topic of the first verse
- Incest Yay Shipping: The topic of the second verse
- Ho Yay Shipping: The topic of the third verseThey keep on saying they're not gay, but yeah I really doubt that,
This can't just be a bromance, who would write a show about that?
I think the subtext in the second season's pretty clear,
Don't tell me I need to calm down—
I don't care, I ship it!
