    You can't really go wrong with a top ten video...but when you have to explain every single joke, it very much ruins it. Maybe consider if you're making a humorous countdown, to first just show the clip then explain what's happening, instead of during the clip?

    Looking back, the gorilla/the horse with the confused family, the use of Patchy the Pirate (and when he visited Nickelodeon studios), the zoom-in on the butterfly with a real-life bug when Patrick was inside Sandy’s house, the reference to the old narrator leaving and when he was run over by Spongebob, the live orchestra, and even visiting the real-world in the original movie and Sponge Out of Water, it was such an interesting way to make a cartoon even more iconic. It was certainly, 100%, still very, very very weird tho

    the birthday blowout is a whole 4th wall breaker and the training video too also theory of the 11 minutes of misery: squidward knows that his a cartoon character,and can count how many minutes there are until the episode ends,he suffers cause he doesn't want to be in a cartoon when he gets abused almost..11 minutes,so that's why he says and references that a lot cause it's on his mind and he can't get it out about how scared he is of suffering more
