    Error. Does not compute.

    Ok, but I think that rules out "Ne" as the element responsible.

    Ni? Si?

    Aww, your beta-hate is endearing.

    I think it's one of those things where you need to know both of the original things to find the two juxtaposed humorous. Like Blue Harvest, but more esoteric. I know neither so I don't find it funny. Nerdy references seem like an alpha NT thing though.

    Yup.

    I guess there's five things things...

    The music, the reference to G Gundam and Super Smash Bros Brawl, and the ridiculous voice that goes "excited to make an appearance!", and then the fact that it's all synchronised.

    I guess it is only funny if you know both the sources :frown:

    So basically, this is nothing more than inside joke humor then?

    That's what's required to get the joke, yes.

    But I guess what I'm asking then, is, which element went into making the joke?

    That's difficult to say without context. I know you explained the parts that are supposed to be funny, but it's missing context.

    What does the you mean by "context"?

    Do you mean, similar sorts of humor to compare it to?

    I'm essentially asking you to explain why the bits of the video are humorous, not just what the bits that are humorous are. Since this is an inside joke, you're going to have to elaborate as to why it's funny (which I know is a buzzkill, like you trying to explain a joke to someone who doesn't get the joke, but it's nonetheless important if you want us to give you an opinion about elements involved)

    I can't explain it. My entire response is built around Fe and having a big reaction of "awesome" mixed in with my absurd sense of humor.

    So basically...

    G Gundam = Awesome
    SSBB = Awesome
    The "Excited to make an appearance!" voice = silly
    Music = Awesome

    So, we have

    G Gundam reference + SSBB + the voice + music = Awesome + Awesome + silly + Awesome

    which is the same as Really Awesome + Silly

    and then it's delivered in a weirdly absurdy sort of fashiony thing, which I guess is the clincher for me.

    I guess we've split into two questions, here...

    "Why would you find this funny?" and "What sort of elements make up this joke?"

    So, my personal response is based around Fe and some sort of N (and I guess one of my main questions is "which N?"), even if the video itself is built entirely around Ne or Si or Albuquerque or whatever.

    i dont get why its funny but i guess thats because i dont know about those things, so maybe if i knew the context it would make more sense to me, but right now i dont get it. what kind of humor do YOU think it is??

    Well, finding it humorous is a gut reaction; it may be type-related, but not as a part of information processing (more to do with being comfortable with that sort of gut reaction). As for creating it, it was probably more than anything; I wouldn't know whether it's Alpha or Beta, mostly because I haven't watched it.
