Favorite Videos of 2015: Day 6: Jeffpardy!

Almost a week...!
For yesterday's entry, click the magic blue text.
Today we'll be looking at Jeffpardy! by gr18vidz14kiz. No, that is not a typo.
This is a fairly unique entry onto this list in the sense that it is not made by an established content creator but rather someone whom we will never hear about again. Even so, the video is easily one of my favorites.
It's a simple, albeit ridiculous, premise. It's the same as Jeopardy, but with everything being "Jeff"-centric. As such, the name of the show, the contestants, the questions, and yes, even the answers are all Jeff.
It taps into absurdist comedy in the sense that it's such a preposterous premise. The most defining moments are when the contestants are unable to come up with the correct answer; poor Jeff #3 said "What is San Francisco?" when the answer was, naturally, Jeff. I also like the fact that someone went through the trouble of finding audio tracks of each of the people saying Jeff and the fact that as the questions go on, the "Jeffs" in the question multiply until it becomes three uninterrupted seconds of Alex Trebek saying "Jeff" on a loop, and I don't know why, but I freakin' love it.
