YMMV / The Adventures of Duane & BrandO

Go To

  • Annoying Video-Game Helper: In A Boy and His Blob, the Blob keeps running away from the Boy.
  • Awesome Music: The entire LP of Devastation.
    • The Air Man part of the Mega Man 2 rap is also considered to be one of the best parts of their best song.
    • BrandO's Castlevania 3, and Duane's Mega Man 6, both released in the same general timeframe, are awesome.
    • Duane's Barkley - Shut Up & Jam, provided you listened to it.
    • The Shadow Link part of their Zelda 2 song.
    • Advertisement:
    • All of Mario 3, but in particular, the Koopa Kids and Dark Land segments.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The video for The Carpet is Lava. Words fail to describe it.
    • Some of the comments on their Double Dragon video show that people were upset about the use of the N-word and the word "faggot". At one point, Brando disabled the comments because of the reaction.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The Carpet Is Lava suddenly becomes extremely dark with the revelation that Duane's wife (the woman in the video), according to Brando, slept with a mutual acquaintance of theirs.
  • Genius Bonus: The personalities of the ghosts in the Pac-Man song mirror not only their original names, but also their behaviors in the original game. Blinky relentlessly pursues Pac-Man, Pinky and Inky are more strategic (Inky also lives up to his original name, Bashful), and Clyde goes into the lower-left corner sometimes, and was long believed to behave randomly ("I'm gonna go over here right now...").
  • Heartwarming Moments: This was a meta-example.
    • Duane and Brand O performing Mega Man 2 at A&G Ohio 2011, and the following Facebook posts to each other.
      • Duane: "It was really nice seeing you this weekend. I'm glad we could put our differences behind us and play MM 2 for the fans again! BTW, I really enjoyed your set, and the direction you're taking with your solo work."
      • Brand O: "Likewise, man! Had a rockin' time. It was great to see you, and great to see your show is just as high octane as it's always been. Keep kickin' ass, bro, I'm sure we'll see each other around! :)"
    • A quote on Duane from facebook explaining the reason for their 2012 reunion: "Because I missed my friend."
    • The mere fact that the two were able to reconcile and reunite after some issues that tore both them and their fanbases apart.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Behold, The Adventures of Duane and BrandO: An NES Adventure!
    • In the original and LP of D takes of Guerrilla War, the final line is "I make Duane look like a little bitch! Hey!" In the An NES Adventure take, the final line is "I make Brandon look like a little bitch! No."

    • Let's do this fucking thing before I just play 3.
  • Moment of Awesome: Announcing their (really brief) reunion on April Fool's Day 2010, could also be considered a Funny Moment due to the timing.
    • And the Millipede rap. The ending to it counts as a Funny Moment.
    • BrandO's Pokemon rap trolled the YouTube community. Counts as a Funny Moment.
  • Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer: Link in Zelda 3 spends a little too much time at the treasure chest game.
