Funny, right? Let’s unpack why this works so well.
There are NOT ten different ways
That’s the heart of this joke. Yeah, there are probably three legit ways to remove a T-shirt–maybe four.
What’s funny is the creativity involved.
This man had to think hard to smash through that upper limit of truly different ways a normal human can take off a shirt.
The descriptions are spot on
Every different method gets a perfect description, matching the style of shirt removal and/or the type of person who uses it.
That’s tough to do with just a few words and a couple of seconds of video each time.
My favorites: one-arm lifehack method, psychopath and toddler.
I’m being silly here, right? Talking about structure for a little snippet of viral video like t his.
Nope. Completely serious.
Reverse the order of the ten ways to remove shirts. Go ahead and do that in your head and this thing doesn’t fly at all.
Because it would go from hilarious to funny to normal.
This works as comedy because it creates the biggest possible contrast between the beginning and the end. The first couple of methods are totally normal and the last ones are insane.
