If someone or something is over the top , you think it goes overboard or goes too far or goes to an excessive or outrageous or ridiculous degree. So it goes much further than it should. So let's take a look at some examples here. I like that comedian, but he uses too many dirty words in his routine. His use of dirty words for shock value is really over the top. Yeah. Some comedians, when they do stand-up comedy. Sometimes they like to use a lot of F-words for this for shock value. But some people don't like that Some people might think that is over the top. Going too far. Okay. Let's look at number two. I know Lady Gaga likes to wear outrageous clothes, but her meat dress was an over the top fashion statement. Yeah. She did dress in a lot of crazy things. Some think she might have gone a little too far with that one. All right . Number three. I like horror movies, but the amount of gore. . You know , that is all that bloody detail. in a lot of the horror movies was over the top. In the Saw movies. Remember there are a series of Saw movies, I don't remember how many there were three , four , five.. But they especially showed a lot of violence and a lot of blood. Even more than usual for a lot of horror movies So maybe they went a little over the top. Number four here. In British English, people sometimes use the abbreviation of OTTT to refer to over the top. Meaning again that you went too far. And our last example here.. I know you wanted to get a hairstyle to stand out. But getting a purple Mohawk was over the top . I know you wanted to get a hairstyle to stand out. But getting a Purple Mohawk was over the top. Purple of course, meaning they dyed their hair purple but it is a Mohawk. . Where you shave off all the hair on this side and shave off all the hair on that side. You just have the hair standing up in the middle. Like some Native American Indians. That was a Mohawk. So that person got a purple Mohawk. So saying maybe you went a little too far. Anyway, I hope you got it, I hope it is clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
