1visualfxguy is a series on YouTube that was created in November of 2013. The main goal of the show is to parody pop culture, celebrities, politics, video gaming, and everything else in a very sarcastic way. The channel started out as nothing but visual effects videos trying to be as weird and surreal as possible, but later the show got into it's current parody format. The series's audience is teenagers and adults because some of the content is mildly inappropriate for younger audiences. Despite the frequent grossout humor and scary scenes, the original audience for the show was kids, until Matthew E. Neuman (the psuedonym of the creator of the show) realized that most of the people who subscribe to him are college students and 20-somethings. The show has later gotten a second channel called 2MattTV, which is a bunch of Saturday Night Live-sketches with a different brand of humor than 1visualFXguy..

  • Bloodier and Gorier - The later videos in the series have a lot of comedic blood and gore in a similar to vein to Happy Tree Friends.

  • Crap Saccharine World:A lot of crap happens to the characters in Matt's YTPs and then they always seem happy in the next video.

  • Crossover: Happens with 2MattTV once.
  • Cutaway Gag: Almost as many as Family Guy (some of which are even directly inspired by Family Guy, the use of Conway Twitty being the most notable one).

  • Fantastic Voyage Plot: Matt shrunk down and went inside his clone once. The plot is done again in a Happy Tree Friends YTP which Sniffles shrinks down and goes into Giggles's body (instead of going in Lumpy like in the original episode).
  • Fan Service - The whole point of the extremely long Star Wars, DC Comics, and Harry Potter themed episodes (often featuring obscure references to the franchise in question just to make extreme fanboy nerds happy).
  • Furry Confusion : Rooster Suave can actually talk, where Spot and the other animals can't.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: One episode uses the term Cleveland Steamer uncensored. Another notable example is a skit that uses the word "fag" uncensored in a double entendre involving the British term for cigarette.

  • Recycled Script: Some of the jokes appear in more than one poop.
  • Reference Overdosed: 1visualFXguy lives and breathes this trope with over 1,000 allusions referencing everything that was popular in the past three years listed on one Wikia page.
  • Running Gag: Peter Griffin doing Bird is the Word whenever birds are mentioned. Conway Twitty has also become a running gag as a homage to Family Guy.
  • Sadly Mythtaken: The Hercules YouTube Poop is SO far from the actual story, that title actually IS Sadly MythTaken.
  • Self-Deprecation: Matt frequently makes fun of his other channel 2MattTV by both praising it and calling it garbage.

Also a lot of the skits are about Happy Tree Friends, Robot Chicken, Futurama, Beavis and Butt-Head, South Park, Family Guy and other adult shows that could easily be mistaken for children's entertainment.
  • Take That: Plenty, it would take practically all day to list them all. The movie Norm of the North gets a serious take that on one occasion. Heck, it seems as though the entire reason the ALF and Omega series exists is to criticize the Alpha & Omega franchise.
  • Talking Animal: Rooster has the ability to talk.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Matt has gotten shot, stabbed, blown up, ran over, eaten, stepped on, and flushed down the toilet but always comes back to life Happy Tree Friends-style in the next video.
  • Toilet Humor: When the series isn't a bloody gore fest or a ridiculous parody of an obscure source, this is often the style of humor being used.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Monterey Jack loves cheese, Nutty of Happy Tree Friends fame loves candy, and Aquaman unsurprisingly has a huge appetite for fish.


  • Uncanceled: Wagon Wheel was originally going to be the series finale and it was supposed to end in late 2014, but thanks to the series getting TONS more views, it came back to YouTube in January 2015.
  • Visual Pun: Plenty have been made in both his YouTube Poops and Animutations.
