Early? I'd Better Make A Joke is a YouTube comment bait, usually posted during shortly after upload when the view count is still low. The comment's format includes some form of the phrase: "I'm early? I'd better make a joke." followed by several hard line breaks, so that the joke (usually a sarcastic phrase or sentence) must be revealed by using YouTube's "Read more" button.


It is unknown where the first comment in this style was posted, but they began appearing on newly posted videos during in June of 2015.[1]

The comments are often posted in videos of popular YouTube accounts, specifically ones that focus on Lets Plays, such as Game Grumps and Markiplier. Searching YouTube comments is still inexact, and due to the mutation of the phrase, an exact count is difficult to gather, however preliminary searches have found 625 examples of the bait.[2] In addition, it has been mentioned in several forums off of YouTube, including the Game Grumps subreddit and the OSBot forum.[3][4]
