Sh*t LRR fans say: “Oh hey the new video is up”

LoadingReadyRun: Sh*t People Say
Unskippable: L.A. Noire
Checkpoint: Tera-fied

So, as Graham will note in the intro to this video, “Sh*t People Say” marks another fine entry in the list of videos where LRR arrives at a meme so late that it’s essentially been beaten to death already. But an old, tired premise has never stopped us scraping the bottom of the barrel before, and it’s not going to stop us now either!

The premise of this video was to, in equal parts, do a parody of the meme, capitalize on the popularity of the format to have some geeky fun, to bring the meme to it’s ridiculous conclusion finally putting it to bed, and to pretty much just do a “Sh*t People Say” video. I’d say we managed to succeed on most of those counts. A number of people in the various comment threads have made mention of the fact that they subconsciously added the X ways to Y music to the video, but I’m tempted to say that it almost strikes me as more of a Rapid-fire. Maybe a bit from Column A and a bit from Column B.

In other news, if you’re interested in some additional content to feed into your eye-holes, please note that Loading Time is henceforth going to be a recurring feature on The Escapist. New Loading Time columns and videos will update every Thursday, so make sure to check those out!

One final thing, our MtG Phases t-shirt is now available on the LRR Store. If you didn’t manage to grab one during pre-orders, now’s your chance!



  1. Ooh, since Extra Creditz/s had itself reshuffled I had a gaping void on a Thursday of nothing of internet worth to watch.
    Thank you LRR, you have answered my prayers and bestowed upon me entertainment.
