Top 10 Epic And Grandiose Media Works With Deceptively and/or Hilariously Mundane Subject Matter

Where even going to the grocery store can potentially become one of the most adventurous things ever

The Top Ten

1 South Park (Isolated rural life in what looks to be possibly the single most boring and forgettable podunk town in all of Colorado)

Except with:
Cartman mutating himself into the amoeba monster from Akira
Giant Robot Barbara Streissand VS Hitler in a bikini
Saddam Hussein working in a thinly-disguised "chocolate" bomb factory in Heaven
Mr. Garrison sex-changed into a bald middle-aged man-lady
Chili made out of Scott Tenorman's parents
Military tanks that are covered with human shields (which are naturally all black)
et cetera, et cetera, you get the idea - xandermartin98

2 The Angry Video Game Nerd (Man in laughably stereotypical "office nerd" costume and persona plays horribly outdated video games, many of which are TV/film licensed, in his basement)

"I'M DRINKING! ROLLING ROCK! ON! THE ROLL'N'ROCKER! (sips beer)" - xandermartin98

3 The song Hardware Store by Weird Al (sung from the perspective of someone who lives in a town so boring that the new Home Depot being built is the single most exciting thing he's ever experienced in his entire life)

They've got allen wrenches, gerbil feeders, toilet seats, electric heaters, trash compactors, juice extractors, shower rods and water meters,
Walkie-talkies, copper wires, safety goggles, radial tires, BB pellets, rubber mallets, fans and dehumidifiers,
Picture hangers, paper cutters, waffle irons, window shutters, paint removers, window louvers, masking tape and plastic gutters,
Kitchen faucets, folding tables, weather stripping, jumper cables, hooks and tackle, grout and spackle, power foggers, spoons and ladles,
Pesticides for fumigation, high-performance lubrication, metal roofing, water proofing, multi-purpose insulation,
Air compressors, brass connectors, wrecking chisels, smoke detectors, tire gauges, hamster cages, thermostats and bug deflectors,
Trailer hitch demagnetizers, automatic circumcisers, tennis rackets, angle brackets, Duracells and Energizers,
Soffit panels, circuit breakers, vacuum cleaners, coffee makers, calculators, generators, matching ...more - xandermartin98

4 Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (Pee-Wee gets his bicycle stolen and has to fetch it back)

Is it wrong that I ship these two? - xandermartin98

5 Rocko's Modern Life (a theoretically extremely prototypical slice-of-life sitcom but warped into a downright freakish genetic mixture of Spongebob Squarepants and South Park)

And believe me, it's almost AS awesome in practice as it already sounds on paper - xandermartin98

6 Clone High (A whole ensemble of hideously deformed and completely out-of-character clones of famous historical celebrities attends stereotypical teen-drama high school together)

Genghis Khan has literally NONE of the intelligence of his original self,
John F Kennedy has none of the class,
Gandhi has none of the chill,
Joan Of Arc has none of the subtlety,

Cleopatra has none of the humility,
Abe Lincoln has none of the spine, etc - xandermartin98

7 The Big Lebowski (Lazy bum with Jesus hair has to find the lowest-effort and most pathetic way possible to get back at the local street gang for urinating onto his rug)

"The Dude wins by doing absolutely nothing" - xandermartin98

8 Luigi's Mansion (Luigi vacuum-cleans his dusty old house)

Of ghosts, to be exact (yes, by literally sucking them up with a vacuum cleaner; try not to think too hard about that) - xandermartin98

9 The song Paranoid Android by Radiohead (One time, Thom Yorke got drunk at a local bar and found himself face-to-face with the most "kicking, squealing, Gucci little PIGGY" of a woman he had ever met)

And here I was thinking that the song was just another incredibly disturbing musical representation of how technology is completely taking over the entire world, like how most of the band's other stuff from OKC onward also is - xandermartin98

10 Um Jammer Lammy (Lammy oversleeps on the day of her band's first major concert and has to get to it on time)

Luckily, however, her guitar is in her MINNND - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 Danganronpa (Stereotypical anime high school)
