Some YouTubers (those kids today) have even pointed out the overuse in their “descriptions”: “Yeah, I know the song is totally overused, but the beat fit so well!

Here are some examples I hand-picked for YOU:

# Legolas/Gimli (LOtR), because if there’s one thing the internet is good at, it’s dwarf!sex;

# Ron/Hermione (Harry Potter), featuring clips from the early movies when they were too young to fall in love accidentally or otherwise;

# Harry/Hermione (Harry Potter), poor misguided kid;

# Jared Padalecki/Jensen Ackles (Supernatural/Real Life), double creepy because a) RPF and b) they play brothers on the show;

# Han/Leia (Star Wars Old Skool), a classic example of the titular phenomenon;

# Mario/Peach (Nintendo), to which I say “must we?”;

# Mohinder/Sylar & Nathan/Peter (Heroes/The Murderer &or Incest Lover Club);
removed from webternets

# Dana/Alice (The L Word), another true Accident;
embedding disabled

# and of course Jim/Pam (The Office US).
