"Do not go seeking that of the answer, for only the dark of quiet pain lays waste here. It was then that is dearly lost and now that is tragically unsound."
"The most horrible Lego films on Youtube! Beloved lego themes of old are put through the most insane, entirely improvised narratives with the most incoherent dialogue we can think of."
The channel's description of their Lejo shorts.
Phil la Phil is a Youtube channel that makes comedic short films, some which are based on LEGO.
Phil la Phil provides examples of:
- Affectionate Parody: The Lejo shorts are parodies of Lego themes such as Castle and Pirates
- Axe-Crazy: Joh Candy definitely counts.
- Bloodless Carnage: Zigged-Zagged.
- Sometimes despite suffering horrific deaths, many of the characters in the Lejo videos simply fall to pieces, being Lego minifigures.
- However, there are instances where blood is shown, such as in Joh Candy II: King of England, where Joh Candy impales one of his own men.
- Call-Forward: In Joh Candy II: King of England, Joh Candy is run off of a cliff by an unknown vehicle. The vehicle is revealed to be a time machine being driven by Timmy in Time Luisers.
- Establishing Character Moment: Joh Candy is introduced Laughing Mad while riding on a stolen cart.
- No Indoor Voice: Loud Woman in Son of a Beach.
- Played for Laughs: Many of the deaths in the Lejo shorts.
- Stylistic Suck: Often Invoked in the Lejo videos.
- The Starscream: Don Deputy in Wost, who wants to kill the sheriff and take his job.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Joh Candy kills his merrymen after he becomes King in 'Joh Candy II: King of England'
