Cracked

Honest Student Loan Ad

Honest Student Loan Ad

Cracked’s “honest” Roger takes on college loan providers, the life-long debt they create for many students, and how most university experiences do little to prepare us to handle real-world responsibilities like paying bills.

Honest Grocery Store Commercial

Honest Grocery Store Commercial

“Go ahead and buy sweet and succulent tree fetuses. They’re just gonna rot on your counter anyway.” Cracked and Roger the educational Satan are back to explain how groceries use psychology and statistics to make us spend and eat more.

Honest Cereal Commercial

Honest Cereal Commercial

“Well, I wouldn’t say it’s good, but I would say it’s effective.” Cracked and Roger are back to ruin yet another thing that makes us happy. Breakfast cereals are addicting carb flakes made from American tradition, sugar and market research.

Batman & American History

Batman & American History

Cracked points out why the live action Batman TV series and films look the way they do and are so distinct. They are products of their times, a reflection of America’s past three decades. Though we refuse to believe that Joel Schumacher’s 2-film run was the ’90s fault.

Honest Diet Ad

Honest Diet Ad

“See how we keep changing what’s good for you? That how we get you.” Cracked’s outspoken Satan is back with a glowing explanation of how most diet products and programs are marketed and how they “work.” And if they don’t work, it’s your fault.

If Hotel Ads Were Honest

If Hotel Ads Were Honest

Cracked’s ol’ devil Roger returns as an hotelier brazenly exposing his business for what it is: bedspacing maximized for cost-efficiency, at the expense of its employees’ or its customers’ well-being.

If the Lottery Was Honest

If the Lottery Was Honest

“In reality, you’re 5,000 times more likely to get hit by lightning.” Cracked’s scumbag businessman reminds us that you’re better off doing anything else with your cash than playing the lottery. It’s fun to dream, but lotteries prey on needy folks by offering false hopes.

If the Meat Industry Was Honest

If the Meat Industry Was Honest

(Gross) “I should note there’s no oversight as to what constitutes ‘high quality.’ I’m just allowed to call things that.” Roger a.k.a. Honest Satan talks about how the meat industry caters to the modern flesh ingester.

Honest Antidepressant Commercial

Honest Antidepressant Commercial

“Maybe if you take Hortiolis, the weather will change. But you know, it won’t.” There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for clinical depression. But as Cracked shows, antidepressant medicines are marketed in the US as if they were simple painkillers.

Honest Cell Phone Commercial

Honest Cell Phone Commercial

Cracked’s devilish salesman Roger returns to talk about cellular phone carriers – a handful of giant corporations that have more or less the same services and efficiency. But look! It’s a map with splotches on it, and there’s a splotch where you live!

Modern Movie Trailer Tropes

Modern Movie Trailer Tropes

Cracked points out the go-to tricks of today’s movie trailers. There’s the overly long title presentation with imposing fonts for action movies, the folk guitar intro for indie movies, and our favorite, the “Transformer losing his boner” sound for epic scenes.

Pinocchio Doesn’t Make Any Sense

Pinocchio Doesn’t Make Any Sense

(PG-13: Language) It’s not that we expected flawless logic from Pinocchio, but as Cracked explains this Disney classic doesn’t make sense even on its own terms, from Geppetto’s carelessness with his prized child to Jiminy Cricket talking about snitching in a kids’ movie.

Why Weathermen Are Useless

Why Weathermen Are Useless

No sane human being thinks weatherpeople are necessary. Cracked details just how much of a sham their job is. In short, the best ones are actually either models or comedians.

Nonsensical Video Game Puzzles

Nonsensical Video Game Puzzles

Puzzles and secrets are in all sorts of video games. And why not? It feels great to solve a challenging puzzle. But sometimes game designers mistake “hard” for “impossible.” The Pokémon one doesn’t even cover the even more oblique endgame.

If Soda Commercials Were Honest

If Soda Commercials Were Honest

Cracked continues its quest to obliterate any chance of selling ads on its YouTube channel, this time taking on big soda brands like Coke and Pepsi, and the fact that we’re willing not only to pay for a can of fizzy water, high fructose corn syrup, acids, and dyes, but to drink it.

If Gyms Were Honest

If Gyms Were Honest

“If you sign up now, we’ll even waive the initiation fee that we created just so we could waive it.” Gyms aren’t total scams – some people don’t have room (or a safe neighborhood) to exercise at home. Just be smart about what you pay for and show up.

Cloudy Historical Events

Cloudy Historical Events

Did you know that an idiot intentionally caused a train collision as a spectacle? And that lady in the sketch? That’s Pocahontas. Or not. After all, our idea of Shakespeare’s looks is based on the work of a mediocre artist who never even met the man. All that and more in Cracked’s video.

Honest Presidential Candidates

Honest Presidential Candidates

Cracked combined the U.S. Republican and Democratic presidential debates and imagined what would happen if the candidates actually spoke their minds. The result would be just as pointless but more entertaining. #killallthefish

Assassin’s Creed Needs to End

Assassin’s Creed Needs to End

(PG-13: Language) “I am telling you that it’s not as awesome as I keep accidentally making it sound!” Cracked breaks down the main story of Assassin’s Creed and why it’s gone down the drain: because this theoretically cool series should’ve ended long ago. Skip to 1:34.

Superhero Movie Mistakes

Superhero Movie Mistakes

Cracked points out some of the useless quirks of some superhero movies: totally unnecessary revisions, overusing characters and settings, and repeating origin stories. Do the opposite and you might just get a winner.

Honest Black Friday Ad

Honest Black Friday Ad

“As if we wouldn’t immediately and wordlessly take your money any other day of the year.” Cracked’s cold blooded explanation might just save a brainwashed shopper or two. John Oliver, Adam Conover and Roger should co-host the apocalypse.

Why Toy Story is Terrifying

Why Toy Story is Terrifying

Woody and his fellow toys appear to be immortal, so they’ll inevitably lose the humans they love. On the other hand, they traumatized Sid, who’s merely as crazy as any real kid. That and more in Cracked’s surprisingly convincing dismantling of Toy Story‘s charm.

Things That Are Not Pranks

Things That Are Not Pranks

A handful of YouTubers make a lot of money by making prank videos. But Cracked reminds us that many of these so-called practical jokes are actually forms of violence, bullying, harrassment or sometimes just lying, but with a disclaimer and a camera.

If the Wedding Industry Was Honest

If the Wedding Industry Was Honest

(PG-13: Language) “Can you really put a price on love? Yes. Love costs on average $31,500.” Cracked and Roger are back to remind us not to splurge on weddings. Remember lovebirds, you also need money after you get married. You know, to live.

If Car Insurance Companies Were Honest

If Car Insurance Companies Were Honest

Cracked takes another cynical look at corporations, this time taking on auto insurance, which is not only legally mandated, but the companies what they can to avoid paying claims, and then penalize you for doing exactly what you paid them for.

If Car Commercials Were Honest

If Car Commercials Were Honest

Cracked rips apart car dealerships: government mandated businesses operating at thin margins who make their money on service, finance charges, and add-ons. Seriously, why can’t we just order cars from direct from manufacturers?

If Sports Drink Ads Were Honest

If Sports Drink Ads Were Honest

After mocking fast food commercials, Cracked is back to tell us what they really think of so-called sports drinks, which are generally packed with stuff that’s really not very good for us. But it’s not like they call them “health drinks,” right?
