On a serious note:

Was Bill's inability to attend known in advance, or was it an unpleasant surprise?

I had an ad for just abou the worst product ever. You could at least get good products advertised on your videos, like Old Spice.

A. OMG, it's Wil Wheaton! Cameos ftw!

B. Nice threads.

C. I thought the bald guy was John Hodgeman sans hair.

D. Do you still get revenue if viewers opt to skip the ads?

They only get revenue if you actually click on it.

I... I don't even have the words to say how much I enjoyed that video.
That was pure awesome.

The cameos had me rofl'ing (oh God, I thought Tycho was going to MURDER you, Graham XD) and it's always nice to see all of you dressed up (Matt's fauxhawk looked as hot as ever. Seriously, do your hair like that everyday, Matt.)

For being such a relatively short video, it was jam-packed with laffs.
Great job, everyone! :D

I don't know that this is the case for pre-roll ads. I think you just have to sit through them. Don't quote me.

Hey, the whole crew has told him before that it's a cool hairstyle, and he should wear it more often. I'm just reiterating the fact :P

No, Cake, that's Brian Boytano, the famed Canadian figure skater.

Wil Wheaton would take asses and kick names.

Wait, that isn't right...

EDIT: Okay Crew people, this is the list of what this thread has degenerated into Thus far...

    - Paul's perceived weight gain/big ass
    - Matt's faux hawk
    - the Cameos
    - the new pre-roll ads

Wow this movie was packing double the faux hawk. Not only Matt, but Jer also lol. Did you guys write that while on the way there with no prior ideas? Like did you just decide on the bus to do a video when you got there so you needed a script? Thats what I took from the writing section of the description.
I miss Desert Bus =(

Pretty much ruled in every way. Great job guys!

This video was full of surprises. I've watched it several times already. The "Paul is fat" references really slow it down being a different form of humour, but the card flicking + celebs really push it over the top. I was surprised & delighted to recognize Jerry/Tycho (FUCKINGKNOCKITOFF!!) & the captain from Star Trek was a given after that. Now I can blame this video for my new hobby: annoying friends with the plastic cards in my wallet.

Yeah, new ads. I can live with them. The only thing I don't like are the ads at the end. When the video is over it immediately links out & if you want to skip back to check something in the vid the entire thing has to load again. Probably not good for bandwidth.

Can anyone identify which person Wil Wheaton was in The Last Starfighter? He's only identified in the credits as "Louis' Friend."

On another note, all of the crew looks very spiffy with suits on.

Suit + Matt's fauxhawk = double whammy

And, yeah, I'd be interested to know if you did go for the novelty cheque thing.

I feel like these roll-through ads didn't last very long! I got the regular ones that pop up at the bottom.

I can't watch the flash version if there is a pre-roll because I'm blocking the ad server.
Yes I know I could unblock it, blah blah blah.

Also,
