Final Fantasy X: The Infamous Laughing Scene

I think it's time to pick on Final Fantasy X again!  Despite being a really fun (if way too linear) Final Fantasy game, the cast of characters can be awkward and annoying at times.  Unfortunately for main character Tidus, he's awkward and annoying all the time.  In a past blog entry I already picked on Tidus pretty hard, but why stop there?

Today let's take a look at the infamous "laughing scene" in FFX.  In this scene, summoner Yuna is trying to cheer up Tidus, who's depressed about being torn away from his home and dropped into the world of Spira.  Yuna explains that her secret to keeping her spirits up is to make herself smile, as well as laugh.  Tidus then attempts these actions, with disastrous results.
