Consensus: Ash's Retarted Adventure uses almost every overdone trick in the book, and fails to inspire anything new into a tediously Pooped source.
Unless you've been living in a hole for your whole life (or neglected to type "youtube poop" into the search engine), you'd know that Yootubepoop's Ash's Retarted Adventure is one of the most popular Youtube Poops ever made. Unfortunately, it's appeal is strictly limited to those who are new to the genre.
The very first edit we see in this video is Ash's mom voiced over by CD-i Ganon's "You will die", followed by a WTFBoom. Right away, Yootubepoop has done two things wrong by using two overused lines in an attempt to add humor at the very beginning. I am not saying Ganon's "You will die" is not funny, rather the way it was applied to this poop. Trailing these two events are seven seconds with of both a Youtube Poop intro and a title screen. I'm indifferent with the intro, which only lasted two seconds. But the title screen was completely unnecessary. There is no point to having a title screen in Poops. Titles are for movies, and Youtube Poops are meant to stray as far away from movies as possible.
It doesn't get any better from that point on. All throughout the video we are acquainted with tasteless unfunny jokes, including Tourette's Guy quotes, farts, a censor, and lazy Microsoft Paint edits. The only breaks we get from these moments are some repetition and well placed stuttering. But even those cannot overshadow the onslaught of bad jokes. At no point does Yootubepoop consider splicing the character's voices to create new words. Instead he continues to add outside sources and stray from using the primary material to his advantage.
There are no special video effects added to the picture. This is a strict audio-edit Poop aside from the Microsoft Paint picture overlays. The special effects would have made nary a difference anyhow.
Towards the end of the Poop we see several text-to-speech recitals on Ash's Pokedex. Let me first clarify that I do not view any self-crafted speech, including voiceovers, as edited, seeing as it does not come from another video or audio clip. Here, it is used far too much; roughly the last quarter of the Poop uses text-to-speech. The lines are obviously an attempt to add humor to the Poop, but they are unfitting in this sort of genre. Yootubepoop would have been better off creating a seperate video, a non-Poop, and placing the dialogue there. It's rather sad, though, because that portion of the video was more humorous than anything else here.
Ash's Retarted Adventure uses every overdone trick in the book, and fails to inspire anything new into a tediously Pooped source. Yootubepoop refers to it as his best, but if that's the case, he really needs to broaden his horizons. The only people I can imagine finding the whole of this Poop funny are the ones who are new to the genre and the strictly narrowminded who don't open themselves to other styles.
