Dank Dank : I'm beginning to feel like a rap god....

Noah The Troll-Hunting Christian Spy : Say hello to the father of Youtube Poop. Update: For goodness sake, it's Max Headroom. He was doing this kind of stuff in the 1980's.

Gloom Shift : "Why are the only funny lines on this show the ones behind me?"

maxheadroomukarchivestm1987 : "he's nothing but a robot. covered in makeup. talks a lot of nonsense. what a way to talk about the president of America"

Shinobi Wolf : "The only funny lines on this show are the ones behind me." Classic.

rlrsk8r1 : "How can we make this guy in a plastic suit and makeup look like a computer-generated guy from the future?" "We'll just make the audio skip and loop." --The most clairvoyant men in the world.

JackisJack : "You know...People can be really nasty. Only the other day I heard someone say, "he's nothing but a robot, covered in make-up." What a way to talk about the president of America." I laughed so hard.

thaibu : Always thought Jim Carrey emulated Max Headroom.

UltrawomanLiz18 : Y'all kids need to understand that the idea behind Max was grappling with a tech revolution. In 88 (or whenever) WWW hadn't even been written yet and though we knew the future was in cyberspace nobody knew what that was. This was a pretty big deal historically. Sampling was new, remix didn't exist yet, this was the bleeding cutting edge. Don't taunt Sumerians over primitive writing and don't dis Max Headroom. He came true.

When Will You Learn? : Is this the origin of YTP?

Zed C : Is he running on windows 98?

therandomdot : This is what they should have kept Max doing... satire, sarcasm and dry-witted humor. He was at his best when he was acting like an artificial intelligence going bonkers. It's sad that they made a show for him that involved drama and being serious. The origin movie of him was dramatic and cyberpunkish. But, he took off in pop culture as a satirist. They should have stuck with that.

Critias : This is Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Max-MAX-MAX-MAX-MAX-MAX-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-MAX MAX MAX MAX-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-MAX Max Headroom.

Forgetful Hatter : I just witnessed a fake ai stutter his name for 10 seconds and i loved every second for it.

Mr. Skeleton : this video looks like a YTP

Cody Cullum : So few people noticed that behind the crazy editing skills and amazing artistic design, Max Headroom was one of the best satirists of his time, and covered more controversial topics than almost anyone in the 80's. This guy was amazing....and then he got a tv show and a movie that completely threw all of that out.

Kailash : me and my mates used to impersonate him in school, thank god there were no smart phones about back then :p

Natalie D. : "Why are the only funny lines on this show the ones behind me?"I DIED

josoverthehill : When computer graphics were new and exciting. I remember being AMAZED... asking myself, "How do they do that!!!!!????" And wasn't it a COMPLETE bummer to find out that it wasn't computers at all, but just freaking MAKEUP?? I know I was disappointed.

DominatorGaming : The 80s sounded so fantastic...

Joe H : So he was basically Jim Carrey before we all knew who Jim Carrey was.

randomhumor1 : so this is where Eminem got the idea for the music video of Rap God, at least the intro part

coyoteroadkill : This show predicted the future so accurately! In the age of video tapes, Max's jumping around and stuttering foretold the annoyance of a scratched DVD.

Limelines : Listening to Max slaughter german was just so goddamn amusing. At least I as a german was able to understand it XDD "UND DER OBER BRACHTE MIR... EINE.... SUPPE! *hysterical laughing for no reason*"

PazuzuStalker : I remember this from back in the days... Extremely stylish, graphic and cool! Was kind of about that in the 80s. Miami vice etc. JR pouring his scotch... It was about style, looks, images and poses. The Vibe! You could almost taste it... Humor? Serious stuff? Nah! If you wonder about stuff like that you weren't there.

patronsaintofpoison : Your love is fading

StaticSnow : is this vaporwave

Peacewalker : "My brothers wearing the other one...... Its dirty!"

Sightseeing : How'd they do it? With makeup. I'm not kidding.

Purple Dinosaur : Am I the only one terrified of max headroom

Orion : This shit was way before its time, i wish i was alive to expience this time period....i know i know, we are living in history as we speak, but there is just something about the 80s, its been ingraned in Americas head as this time....i don't know how to explain

MallarRallam : This looks like the very first YouTube Poop.

Johann Gaius isiNwinga Zulu Ahuitcoyotzin Hirohito : This isn't funny, but rather very creepy.

CoolestCorpseOnTheBlock : Anyone else see the subliminal messages?

SmegPod : most of it wasn't actually cgi it was just a guy made up to look like cgi, cut up and edited

magikoopa : Is this suppose to be entertaining???

nickpower03 : If you watched this on acid.. oO

stiimuli : ya know, everything I've seen this guy in, other than this show, he was really good with lots of charaisma. Honey i shrunk the kids, an episode of Star Trek Next Gen.... Why wasn't he a bigger star?

Charlotte Nixon : 1:59 I laughed so hard I exploded

Ralof Of Riverwood : At least he has better hair then Trump

Daehawk : Matt Frewer is an acting genius. I loved Max when I caught it in the 80s new. I was a teen and it was perfect for a tech guy. People used to wonder if it really was a computer lol if you can believe that. I didn't catch it a lot being active and discovering girls but loved it. My step mom ruled the VCR so I couldn't record it. It wasn't until I saw him in Star Trek The Next Generation that I found out who Max was.

Bálint Szép : "And the nuclear powers have just denied rumors that the world's waters are being polluted by nu-nu-nu-nu-nuclear waste. They say they say the pollution is being caused not by them but by all the dead fish... we havetoday... in the sea... mkay? NE-NE-NE-NEXT!"

Barrett Lewis : 5:05 you can hear the crew laughing (over the ping pong game they seem to be playing)

Jonathan Jensen : You know, I've known about Max Headroom since I was a kid in the '80s...however, I just now realized that YTPs are trying to emulate it.

Sparky Marie : I'm shook, what the hell did I miss in the 80s.

Stephen Campion : UK TV was excellent in the 80's. We had Max Headroom, The Young Ones, The Tube, The Beiderbecke Affair, Edge Of Darkness, Spitting Image, etc. etc.

Electronics For Fun : max doesn't say his name 100 times in a row! the other broadcasters who produced there own versions of max headroom did it wrong. "20 minutes into the future" (original British broadcast) did it the right way.

Patrick Bateman : That's absolutely hilarious. "But what about frozen meat? Is that as fresh as the moment the cow went... 1:59 "

southsider 35 : Because of the pirating incident in 1987, I can`t look at him and think of when I saw the incident on WGN. I had to sleep with my dad that night. I was 7 years old, but my birthday was only 8 days away.

Rusty Ralston : the weirdest part is that I actually kinda talk like this...with the stutters and pitch shifts...I need to see someone about this, if I could be comfortable while talking about it...
