"The Joke-Explainer™ 7000 [FILE-11] - Haltmann's Archives" is a lore video and the eleventh "file" in Haltmann's Archives. It documents The Joke-Explainer™ 7000 (codename JK-EX-7000), which first appeared as a commenter on the channel's most obscure rips, and then in the CCC episode "Loves the Ladies".
It appears to have been unlisted briefly from April 30 to May 1, 2018.
The video is formatted like all Haltmann's Archives videos starting with "[FILE-02]".
The FILE begins with the specifications of the Joke-Explainer™ 7000, indicating its smol-ness, material, and manufacture date. The notes section explains the Joke-Explainer™ 7000's origin as a creation of Chad Warden (for the good of the channel's viewers). The notes also mention the hypocrisy of The Voice Inside Your Head belittling Chad for believing in a "useless cause", then Rebooting the channel for the sake of making the viewers happy.
Further notes indicate that the smol machine is similar to Wood Man in their common knowledge of the real world, and the ">:]" symbol on the Joke-Explainer™ 7000's antenna. The explainer can appear anywhere at random and immediately explains the joke of any SiIvaGunner rip it hears to those nearby. Some tests reveal the jokes of Monster's Mansion BGM - Pac-Land, Stalker - Duke Nukem 3D, and Monochrome (JP Version) - Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (though it fails the latter due to an employee knocking it over).
The FILE ends by revealing the author of the notes, Dr. Andonuts from EarthBound and Mother 3, and his intention to keep it secret from President Haltmann to study it further.
During the video, the Joke-Explainer™ 7000's theme, "Magolor Shop" from Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, plays.
- The Joke-Explainer™ 7000 itself commented on this rip, saying:
This video explains me, The Joke-Explainer™ 7000's origin!"
- However, the video is mostly explaining what The Joke-Explainer™ 7000 does, rather than its origin.
- There is a minor typo at the text block that appears at 0:47: "It can fly [...] and is know to appear anywhere at random" should be "It can fly [...] and is known to appear anywhere at random".
