Bonzi Buddy

Bonzi Buddy was an adware and virtual desktop assistant featuring an on-screen avatar of a talking purple gorilla that could interact with its users and run simple utility services like text-to-speech and download management. The character saw a resurgence in popularity in the Vinesauce community after Joel downloaded the software during his destruction of a Microsoft Windows XP operating system in 2014.

MP3 to MIDI Remixes

MP3 to MIDI Remixes are MP3 audio files that have been converted into MIDI format, which typically results in a poorly-remixed version of the song wherein all instrumental and vocal tracks are replaced with oversimplified synth notes. The practice of making these files was popularized by Joel during his "Windows 8 Destruction" stream in July 2015.

Grand Dad

Grand Dad (formerly named 7 GRAND DAD) is an infamous Famicom bootleg of The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy. It became famous during Joel’s “Insane Mario Bootleg Games” stream, and is a recurring Vinesauce in-joke.

Joel's Father

Joel's Father is an inside joke within the Vinesauce community, who often associate Joel's father with Kermit the Frog. His father is also notable in the community due to a story told during the "Windows XP Destruction" video, in which Joel's father asks if he was "downloading boobs again."
