Spaceship: Hey everybody! [...] Today, I am going to show you TEN WAYS... to kill yourself!
Spaceshipcontrol is a dark comedy YouTube channel revolving around the misadventures of Spaceship, which usually lead to or are the result of weird hijinks and surreal scenarios, like crudely drawn Donald Trump Aliens landing on Earth to rescue Donald Trump from humanity. Or something. This is frequently averted though, due to the existence of a grand narrative that connects many of the episodes.The channel is known for not only dark and surreal humour, but also for its frequent attempts at being so bad that it's good, but whether or not these attempts are successful is up to debate.
Spaceshipcontrol's videos give examples of...
- Iconic Outfit: The Groucho glasses and the hoodie.
- Running Gag: The hashtag #PrayForBritain appears on a regular basis, usually on a piece of paper.
- Sensory Abuse: Ear rape is frequently used. Music is often distorted, and sometimes there is sudden volume spikes.
- Flashes of images are also used very often, satanic imagery in particular.
- Toilet Humor: Literally. A few videos have scenes that are filmed in toilets, in one of them there is even audible sounds of feces dropping into the toilet in an adjacent cubicle, accompanied by Spaceship barely containing his laughter.
