• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Which one's which? Doesn't really matter.

Barats and Bereta are an Internet comedy duo who write, act, and post skits on their Youtube channel as well as their own Homepage. Some of their older, better known works are Mother's Day, Auto Insurance, Flag Makeover, Douche Off, Mantage and Jesus Pwned U. There are also some short series, such as Ad Guys.

They are probably known most for their usage of What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome? and Narm Charm as vehicles for their work.

Barats and Bereta provides examples of the following tropes:

"...fuck the Yankees."

  • Heterosexual Life Partners: Luke Barats and Joe Bereta should be the Web Original posterboys for this trope. Their characters are often examples of this as well.
  • Hilarious Outtakes: There's one at the end of "Rulebreakers" where Barats tries to continue being electrocuted but ends up breaking down laughing from the sheer silliness of his acting.
  • Jerkass: Mr. Wentworth. (And maybe Jesus, but he's more like Crazy Awesome.)
    • Also, Luke and Joe from Douche Off compete to see who is the bigger one of this trope. It is as epic as it sounds.
  • Large Ham: Both Luke and Joe try to out-ham each other in almost every video. Special mention goes to "Ad Guys" and "Cubicle Wars" for making a plot out of the one-upping antics.
  • Mood Whiplash: When one of the kids gets a seizure in "Yes Kidz Kan".

No. Leave him. He is not a Kid Kadet.

  • Precision F-Strike: In "Mousemate" and "Ad Guys".
  • Rapid-Fire Comedy: Be careful or you'll miss something good.
  • Rated "M" for Manly: The Mantage, obviously.
  • Sitcom Arch Nemesis: Milkman and Mailman.
  • Take That: In "2012", the time traveling pair accidentally destroy the only copy of Indiana Jones 4, which is one in a chain of events that prevents the apocalypse.
    • "F U!" is a video composed of three people flipping off annoying people in the most amazingly over-the-top fashions possible. The first person lets his dog shit in a guy's yard right next to his paper, the second person, a girl, blows a kiss to someone's boyfriend while the girlfriend is walking right next to him, and the third guy drank all his roommate's beers. It must be seen to be truly appreciated.
    • "Boston Jury Duty" is one big Take That at the New York Yankees. It's a slow burn, but the pay off is so worth it.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?: Pretty much everything they do qualifies.
