According to the web documentarians at Know Your Meme, the term Supercut is defined as a video montage made of overused movie or TV platitudes. If you’re a real nerd like I am, you can dive straight into the genre’s history here. To spiral even further, you can find a full database of supercuts over at Supercut.org.
Since 2011, I’ve compiled and edited over 30 supercuts for web culture blog Slacktory & My Damn Channel. We’ve learned what works, and what doesn’t. We’ve compiled over 1 Million YouTube views and the more popular ones have been featured on Buzzfeed, HuffPost Comedy,Uproxx, MNSBC.com, Vulture, Grantland, E! Online, Jezebel, The Today Show and The Daily What.
