Every Frame A Pause, abbreviated as “EFAP”, is a weekly podcast hosted by YouTubers MauLer, Rags and Wolf. They are often joined by guests, with the most common recurring guests being Fringy, Jay Exci, Metalcommander and DasBoSchitt.[1] The podcast often involves the critique and discussion of various films, TV shows, video games and video essays by other YouTubers. EFAPs are noteworthy for their length, with the longest currently being EFAP #50, which spans 29 hours. The term "Every Frame A Pause" is a play on the name of the YouTuber "Every Frame a Painting."[2]


MauLer, Rags and Wolf are content creators known for their in-depth reviews of media, such as the films from the Star Wars franchise. On September 3rd, 2018, MauLer hosted a stream with Rags and Wolf on his main channel, where they analysis and riff on a review of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens by JaredGenisis and video essays by Downward Thrust and Captain Midnight respectively.

Online Presence


On October 6th, 2018, the r/MauLer[3] subreddit was created for posting discussions and memes related to the EFAP streams. Later, a fan EFAP website[1] dictated to archiving information about the streams, including their length, topics covered and guest appearances. The site as hosts a large amount of images related to fan-created memes.

Notable Examples

Rhino Milk

During EFAP #5, the EFAP crew critiqued Jay Exci’s (known at the time as CinemaSinsSins) "Everything Wrong With Black Panther An Unbridled Rage". During the video, Jay defends the existence of rhino farms in Black Panther by saying they could be used for milk, which triggered a humorous reaction from the crew. This become a running gag through streams, with the live chat posting emojis of a rhino next to a glass of milk whenever it’s referenced.

Intellectual Gaming Community/Tonald

During EFAP #21, the EFAP crew critiqued Downward Thrust’s “Breakdown: Are Older Video Games Relevant?”, in which the introduction title card features the subheading “-The Intellectual Gaming Community-”. The crew mocked the unironic usage of the term, leading to them joking that he is the founder and leader of said community. Later, the hosts wonder if Downward Thrust’s real name (Tone Loke) is his full name. MauLer jokingly guesses that Tone is short for “Tonald”. Later in the stream, MauLer displayed fan art of Downward Thrust with a quote by him, but attributed to Tonald Loke.

Long Man Bad

On EFAP #22, the EFAP crew critique Jack Saint’s “Long Critique Is Not Deep Critique”, in which Jack criticizes MauLer’s review style. MauLer coins the term "long man bad." Afterwards, he and the EFAP fanbase would go on to ironically use the saying in a positive manner.

Toxic Brood

In EFAP #29, the EFAP crew critiqued AJcaraballo95’s “Star Wars: The Fandom Menace”, in which AJ95 insinuates that anyone who doesn’t enjoy his video is part of “the toxic brood.” The EFAP crew mock this and proclaim that they are members of the brood. Toxic Brood was soon turned into an ironic title of pride for The EFAP fanbase.

The Don

On EFAP #36, the EFAP crew constructed a backstory for a minor character from the film Captain Marvel called Don (nicknamed “The Don”), with guest Robothead beginning by saying his wife recently died of cancer. The EFAP crew also lambasted Captain Marvel's treatment of The Don, who she assaults him and robs in a deleted scene of the film. The fanbase would go to deify The Don, which is itself a popular trend in online communities.
