The First Rule
April 6th, 2011

Posted by Matt

Welcome my students. Clear your minds, and remember, there is only one rule… you must click here to see the video.

Hey everyone. Sorry about the late update this week, things have been kinda crazy. This week’s video comes to you courtesy of Paul, in keeping with his long-standing tradition of writing scripts based on digging out the absurdity in the most minute details of everyday situations. We shot this video last weekend in Beacon Hill Park, not far from where we previously shot Cursing. Thankfully the weather has warmed up considerably, but it was windy as heck, and threatening to rain throughout the entire shoot. No Peacocks in shot this time, but at one time we did get surrounded by a flock of six or so that seemed to be curious as to what we were doing.

Unskippable this week was Front Mission: Evolved, you can watch that here.



  1. That flock of peacocks better be in a Loading Time.

  2. Me being me, the phrase “flock of peacocks” has led to me wondering what a flock of peacocks haircut would look like… an anti-gravity mullet is the first thing that comes to mind.

  3. I think that the stinger was missing pants like Will Arnet had in Arrested Development.That would have been even more hilarious.

  4. Heh, the master’s wearing a white belt?

  5. @foo

    The coloured belt system is actually meaningless commercialization of martial arts training. It’s pretty much like an achievement system for which you literally have to pay before you can collect the next level.

  8. I didnt really like the video this week.. I still thought it funny, but just seemed like that one guy who focuses on the small fallacies of language. Note that i do love every other video Paul has written, but this one seemed nit-picky

  9. @Kieth K:

    Yeah, I know that, but it’s still a commonly accepted symbol. I wonder if it was intentional in the video or not.
