The Six Minute Guide to Fanwank

Presented by The Federation
premiered February 2001
Fanwank: elements included in a story or video that references past stories or elements for no other purpose than to please the fans or to give an aura of authenticity that the story itself obviously isn't doing. Also, elements used so often they have become cliched.
Count along with the video, and see if you can spot all the fanwanky elements included! (Note that some things are more fedwanky than fanwanky!)
