(Actual Noise It Made) is a closed caption featured in an episode of JonTron in which the host Jon Jafari reacts to a screeching noise made by a cassette tape player after unsuccessfully trying to run the 1988 Commodore 64 video game Hercules: Slayer Of The Damned in a regular cassette tape player. Since the release of the original episode in September 2013, many fans have uploaded their own remixes of Jon's reaction video set to a variety of alternate sound effects, dialogue, or music.


The closed caption was originally featured in JonTron's retrospective on a variety of video games that are based on the legends of Hercules in Greek Mythology, which was uploaded to YouTube on September 24th, 2013.[1] At one point, Jon reviews Hercules: Slayer Of The Damned for the Commodore 64 and notes that he finds it odd that a video game would be distributed in the format of a cassette tape. When he inserts the tape into a audio cassette player instead of a Commodore 64 console, a loud, screeching static noise can be heard emanating from the cassette player, prompting Jon to stare blankly at the camera with a frightened look. The caption "(ACTUAL NOISE IT MADE)" appears below Jon's confused face, emphasizing that he did not alter the sound in post-production.


The first variant was uploaded on September 26th, 2013 by user OliverReacts (shown below, left). The video was entitled "The ACTUAL Noise JonTron's Hercules Cassette Game Made", and featured audio from JonTron's review of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.[2] The video gained over 13,000 views and over 370 likes. User mardfet created a compilation video of various noises coming from the console on January 23rd, 2014 (shown below, right). This video gained over 2,500 views and over 90 likes.
