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.

"I Ship It" Tropes:

  • Filk Song
  • To the Tune of...: "I Love It" by Icona Pop
  • Shipping: It has come to be known across fandom as something of a shipping anthem.
  • One True Pairing: Mentioned by name in the chorus.
    This is my OTP, I'll go down with this ship!
  • Crack Pairing: Mentioned in the chorus—the singer knows her ships are cracky and doesn't care.
    You're on the canon ground, I'm up in crack ship space.
  • Ship-to-Ship Combat: In the chorus, the singer says she's more than willing to go to war.
    Let's start a shipping war, don't care if I get hate.

  • Ships That Pass in the Night: The topic of the first verse
    I got this feeling at like three am while watching Netflix.
    I drew some porny fanart and I wrote some smutty fanfic.
    Can't help it, I just think that they would make such a good pair,
    In canon they have never met—
    I don't care, I ship it!
  • Incest Yay Shipping: The topic of the second verse
    I know that they are siblings but I think there's something more
    If she weren't dating that guy, they'd be banging, I am sure.
    The third scene in episode four, come on, look at him stare.
    Twincest can't really be that bad—
    I don't care, I ship it!
  • Ho Yay Shipping: The topic of the third verse
    They 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!
