    It's not based on any "memes". Memes and 4chan humor are at the very bottom at the hierarchy, in between carlos mencia and lolcats.

    To say that video sucks is a gross understatement.

    At 2:09, I did get a smile on my face though.

    The main problem here is that, according to the OP, the video is supposed to be a parody of a certain type of youtube clips. However, most members here, including myself, were not able to tell that it was a parody. It was mad, but not mad enough to be a recognizable satire, because anything is possible on youtube. So if you watch it without any context, it is just that, a clumsy nonsense video, apparently made by a crazy Serbian nationalist. There was nothing funny about a bad video to most members, unless you have a personal preference for laughing at other people's ineptness.

    Knowing that this was supposed to be a parody, the question now is: Does that change anything? If it is satire, what exactly was it supposed to reveal or attack? Nationalist clips on youtube? That is too easy a target to be worthy of a parody and it is hard to tell the fake from the real on youtube, which is probably why most didn't recognize it as such. So if it was supposed to make people recognize the spoof and laugh at the real videos it refers to, it blatently failed (going by the reactions in this thread).

    That leaves us with two possible explanations:
    1. The members are all too stupid.
    2. The video failed to achieve what it aimed for.

    I laughed for about fifteen seconds altogether at how absurd/nonsensical the text was, but the video was a waste of three minutes. So no, this ESTJ says "not funny".

    However, my INFP BFF is sitting right beside me, and was like WTF ARE YOU WATCHING ... so I sent her the link, and I heard her saying it was "so bizzarre", "I'm confused", and "There's a chance I would have found it funny if it wasn't filled with racism". She laughed slightly more than I did, but I think it's still a dud.

    Oh, so you DO understand me.

    It's the same reason I could laugh at the TV show "Scarred," where crazy SFP types crashed their skateboards and bikes while trying ridiculously unsafe stunts and somehow lived to tell about it... and sometimes go back to trying it all over again. (although I think there was far more talent in the show.)

    I posted my more thorough-analysis in the NT version of the thread. It looks like I was the only INTP who thought it was funny on some level.

    @OP: I understand why you had one thread here and one polled thread in the NT section.... but we're not going to keep doing this, in case you have plans to repeat this experiment ad nasuem. One thread per topic, please.

    Well, I definitely thought THIS was funny!

    PS. Crap, INTPc is still down, huh?

    Sounds like "NP" for the win, but F values got in the way. Any inherent racism only made it funnier... not because I think racism is cool in the least, but it made the whole video even more over-the-top and ridiculous.

    After watching the vid a 2nd time, and reading through some of your responces.. I have a better idea of where your going with this. Sure, certain people might find it funny. I couldn't. I live in midwest USA and don't spend anytime at all watching Nationalist videos, nor do I understand much about these particular cultures. Someone that is more accustomed to the cultures might find it really funny. Personally, I do enjoy edgy, innapropriate, dark comedy. I LOVE Doug Stanhope. He can be pretty of the wall with his "myspace pedofiles vid" "abortion vid" etc.
    I think your elitist mental gymnastics pyramid idea is hilarious! Do you really think "intelligence" can be correlated to this pyramid? What kind of intelligence are you referring to? Bottom line, I hate to see someone put something like this up.. only to get blasted with criticism. But I I guess that doesn't bother you much, or you would have a more closely considered your audience here.

    What racist comments? Do you realize it's a parody of Yugoslavian racism? That's like saying Dave Chappelle is a racist because he says "nigger" when in-character as a racist. What you're saying doesn't make any sense.
