If you've ever looked at the comments on the majority of YouTube videos or major commenting sections of newspapers or the like, you'll see that the 'Thank You Hater!' video is addressing a real occurrence. The cheerful, upbeat and hilariously sarcastic video by Clever Pie and Isabel Fay features lyrics like "You are a... Sexually aggressive, racist, homophobe, misogynistic, cowardly, illitterate, waste of human skin."

Somehow these lyrics are sung and danced to in a fun, 50s retro-diner kind of way. The video features some of the classic troll signatures that make little sense, but are horribly offensive. Other people who have had negative comments directed at them make an appearance (including a poor misery bear), to discuss their experience with Internet trolls. The Thank You Hater! video is a hilarious take on an ongoing Internet issue. Stats for Troll Combatting Melodies Trending: Older & Mild
