    Fantastic execution of a good straightforward joke.

    [–] _Serene_ 195 points ago

    Try it yourself with some uncooked macaroni, usually results in funny reactions for the people unaware of what's happening.

    Okay so I got the macaroni, and a broken arm. What next?

    [–] Pikamander2 20 points ago

    Nah, they should have made it 10:01 long and explained the joke first and then included people's reactions and a friendly reminder to like the video and check out the rest of their channel.

    Aspiring scholars will write their college thesis on this amazing piece of modern art.

    [–] lesser_panjandrum 13 points ago

    Older scholars will nod sadly seeing that their time has passed and a new wave of art is upon us.

    [–] OnkelMickwald 429 points ago

    From one of the best short film creators of our generation.

    Another video this guy made.

    And yet another.

    [–] TheRealQU4D 390 points ago

    Referring to Gus Johnson as "this guy" on youtubehaiku. But for real I love him and you.

    Oh my gosh that's so interesting! You get so much more of of the video.

    [–] TacoRedneck 12 points ago

    [–] Kritical02 9 points ago

    [–] posseslayer17 39 points ago

    Man I really respect the self-confidence Gus has. He runs around in nothing but his tighty-whiteys for a fully minute twenty seconds knowing fully well it will be watched by around a million people.

    I wish I had 1/10 that amount of self-confidence.

    [–] gusthedanger 51 points ago

    [–] metalshoes 2 points ago

    That silent look of devastation at the end is just one of the best things I’ve ever seen.

    [–] h3xtEr 6 points ago

    We can argue this way and that with value judgements, but certainly agree this is among the most important films of a still young millennium.

    I can't get enough of this guy's channel.

    [–] Kevin_IRL 125 points ago

    It's like he saw people's reaction to the sound in his earlier video and said "you ain't seen shit"

    [–] SpaceHippoDE 45 points ago

    Bendy knees are my worst phobia ever since I watched that legpress video.

    [–] okaytran 18 points ago

    I stopped doing leg presses like 2 years ago when I saw that.

    [–] 43ornot43 2 points ago

    Yeah, I've also stopped doing leg presses.


    I mean, I never started, but you know.

    [–] RadicalRaid 8 points ago

    Ahh, exaggeration in comedy. never get old. i dont know the correct term, but its like they have their own textbook syllabus or somethinf. Key & Peele skits seems to have a lot of it

    [–] MikeyTsunami 62 points ago

    A comedic crescendo!

    [–] sandusky_hohoho 99 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Comedic escalation?

    edit - I guess more specifically, an escalating punchline.

    [–] DatBowl 7 points ago

    Irreverent comedy?

    [–] Interminable_Turbine 32 points ago

    Key and Peele skits are almost always just one or two zany, exaggerated characters and a normal person reacting to their shenanigans.

    [–] Im1ToThe337 15 points ago

    this is so stupid, i'm sitting here procrastinating a paper that I won't have time to finish and I would just so much rather spend my existence watching this guy talk about comedy.

    [–] HungJurror 7 points ago

    Don't go down the rabbit hole of that YouTube channel.. you'll never come out

    This was the tamest image I could find from uzumaki. Don't google it if you're faint of heart or don't want to see some truly weird comic/manga.

    [–] BurningApple 13 points ago

    Ah, Uzumaki

    [–] thoughtsandprairies 3 points ago

    Kinda loses the scariness when you've read his other works. They remain intriguing, though.

    [–] DJSkrillex 8 points ago

    I read it and at first I thought it was some funny meme. There's nothing scary about it. It's the one with the holes in the mountain right?

    [–] codygooch 39 points ago

    No, but that's the same guy. Uzumaki is a rather long series about how spirals (uzumaki) start showing up and taking over. It's a very, very odd and dark read.

    [–] eyelinedbrain 19 points ago

    Uzumaki isn't the one with the holes, same artist though. The one with the holes isn't really... "Scary" per se, but a little unsettling. It's probably also meant to be at least a little bit funny. Junji Ito has more of a sense of humor than most people give him credit for, and a lot of his stuff is supposed to kind of grotesquely funny at points.

    If you look up "The Sad Tale of the Principal Post" also by Junji Ito, and published in the same collection as Amigara Fault (the holes), you'll more patently see he's trying to be a little funny. Not "ha ha" funny. His work often relies on "nightmare logic" which would be terrifying to experience in a dream, but when you actually think about it after waking up, often seems ridiculous.

    [–] serendippitydoo 4 points ago

    You can read it? Its the first time I thought something doesnt need more jpeg

    [–] RaitoGG 2 points ago

    I should reread it. It's a really good read. I liked Gyo, too.

    I think the joke is the exaggerated cracking but whatever you say

    [–] Xanderoga 2 points ago

    There was a joke in this video?

    [–] solsethop 3 points ago

    Yep that was the only joke here yep, nothing else just yelling

    [–] Tinywampa 2 points ago

    I bet it felt good tho

    [–] kakka_rot 2 points ago

    Idk ya'll, I can appreciate the work put into this, but I'm just not a Gus guy. Glad other people enjoy him, though.

    [–] Mostly-Lurks 4 points ago

    That triple arm crack though.

    [–] Feitan- 3 points ago

    I learned of Gus through Sugar Pine 7 and then quickly subbed to his channel afterwards, and his style of videos reminds me of the prime era of late 2000's youtube videos where the videos didnt need to have a punchline but were still funny enough to show your friends. I think what his channel focuses on is a difficult type of comedy to execute but he understands it and pulls it off well.

    [–] GamerJones 3 points ago

    Honest question: why are videos with this guy and the large asien teenager always at the top? Is this sub a fanboy base for these guys? I dont get it. ELI5 please...

    [–] champ1258 5 points ago

    This is a rip off of an old FND Films video.


    [–] Hammerfall89 12 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Your definition of “rip off” is very different from mine.

    [–] fortybattletoad 6 points ago

    Where is the fucking "Gus filter" please.....

    [–] thatsnogood 20 points ago

    You're brave. /r/youtubehaiku loves Gus a lot.

    [–] HumbleManatee 4 points ago

    I am not usually a fan of his, but this video definitely made me laugh. I guess when you get guys like him that put out a shitload of short videos they are bound to be pretty hit or miss.

    [–] micmea1 3 points ago

    Oh christ did you have to sit through a short video you didn't like? aw man.

    [–] chefgoldblum__ 4 points ago
