Tube Men Enter
July 29th, 2009

So this was entirely my brainchild. So if you hated it, go suck on an egg.

Basically the process went something like this:

1. While working a couple weeks ago I came across these very large (roughly 9′ long) cardboard tubes. I was instantly intriqued and my mind started to wander.

2. The first thing that came to my head was the wide shot of both Matt and Tim at a stand still, thats my favorite part of the video.

3. I then story boarded the rest of it and we went from there.

It took a lot longer to shoot than you would think. We are slow and lazy. Here are some behind the scene pictures mapping out how we actually got some of the shots.


  1. Did I miss something or did someone upload/not upload something they shouldn’t/should have?

  2. I’m with Tyler. Methinks this post is a bit premature.

  5. It’s an operation for the LoadingReadyRunners which hasn’t yet had a winner chosen.

  6. Intriqued?
    You were intrigued by something that piqued your interest, perhaps?

  8. so you publish stuff at, and Seems like a bit much, and probably alienates casual fans. I watch your new vids on but i haven’t been to the other sites and don’t really see the point.

    The runners site is for fan contests and fan created stuff. The casual LRR fan wouldn’t be missing out on anything. Anyone who listens to the podcast or reads the forums knows about the site, and those are the people that the site is for.

    Casual LRR fan?

    I thought there were only hardcore fans, and people who have yet to experience LRR…

  12. @MightyDaikon – While we do publish things to to all three websites It should be said that contains just episodes of cHustle, which you find on the regular site. We decided to open that site to people who might just want to watch cHustle and not our other videos have that option.

    As for it is mainly for our forums group “The Runners” which if you make it onto the forums and find someone to nominate you (really easy, hell I would do it) you can join in the fun.
