6. What does AP stand for?

Anti-piracy

Fans of TheGreatUnknown Productions YouTube videos use AP to stand for "anti-piracy." The channel specializes in creating custom videos of kill screens for software, gaming consoles, and services.

The videos featuring kill screens may be due to a console overheating or a bug in the game that causes it to crash. Or, they may be due to the detection of pirated content and thus referred to as "anti-piracy," or "ap" for short by the TheGreatUnknown Productions fandom.

People may use "AP" as an acronym for various words, such as "attack power," "Associated Press," or "attached parenting." You can typically tell the intended meaning of the word by the context in which it's used. For example, if you are watching a video produced by TheGreatUnknown Productions and see a comment with "ap" in it, it is most likely referring to anti-piracy.

Example

"Can you make an xbox one ap video?!?"
