G-Major (see gallery page) is an advanced Poopism where a clip of audio is changed to match the pitch with the notes of a G-major guitar chord (as summarized by Gallers). The result is a distorted and often scary sounding piece of audio, usually to accompany a color-inverted or tinted video. This is considered the demonic effect. Expect to see a lot of unfunny Giygas, Satan and demonic jokes. It is sometimes known simply as the original video title replaced by "Scary [X]" or "Demonic [X]". For example, Rick Roll in G-Major, which started the "Scary" fad, can be found as Scaryroll. Many songs, sources, TV shows, movies, video games, logo animations and memes can be found in G-Major.
Few editing software allow for G-Major usage, so it is a less common effect to find. They are usually made with Audacity, although Sony Vegas can also distort sound.
