Graham totally pulled off that accent.

I loved Paul with the MP5k and the bow tie and the high-pitched voice at the end, lol.

And also when Cathleen pulled up that other mercenary I was like "WTF?"

I loved the quick cuts between Graham and the Mercenaries.

Did Raymond remind anyone else of Johnny Depp in the Willy Wonka movie?

You really have to admire their enthusiasm.

Also, can you get a package deal for a coup and a counter-counter-coup? Because I'd hate to pay for the coup and then find out I have to buy this whole other thing later.

Somehow I think NO one else could pull off alex's role but himself. It so suits him.

The cuts to Graham talking made me laugh but I think Paul's performance was freaking perfect, its even making me giggle right now.

Awesome short video

This was Awesome! I think it was definitely the great performances all round that made the skit. The snappy editing worked well too. To the point comedy every clip.

[Edit: I need to remember to read before I post. I wrote pretty much exactly what Lyinginbedmon wrote. I just get so excited! :D ]

Paul: Hilarious! (and note, only something he could pull off beardless)
Graham: Amazing, as always.
Ray: Campy as hell, I approve.

....Metal Gear?

But seriously, that cigar tasted like dried cinnamon dogshit.

I actually like how Graham used ALL the cuts where I'm cocking the pistol - it makes it more like one of those retarded action movies. At some point I want to feature a merc who keeps racking the pump on his shotgun for emphasis, only to realize later that he's ejected all his ammo in the process..

I was thinking about this after I posted it, and I had come back and say...

Textual laughter is so much less satisfying. :? Great video.

Hooray, more Brad!! You seriously need to utilize his availability more. He's not that far away, right?

Kathleen & Alex make stellar mercenaries. And here with the preview pic I thought the video would be about a gym. Their performance was great & their over-the-top enthusiasm really made the video. About the only thing I can suggest at the moment would be to have Graham turn his head to the side when addressing Paul at the end to indicate a different character was present. That, & the silly wig looked more like a silly wig & not so much like a character with bad hair. I'm not sure what you were trying to do with that.

Loved it.

I like how Jer with the mask and helmet doesn't quite look like Jer, but the other soldier that overthrew Ray is clearly Mr. VanHumbek.

Addendum: The flavor text for cHustle 4 actually fits this video pretty well. "Sometimes life throws a problem at you that's too big for you to solve yourself. Sometimes it's a great idea to get a friend to help you with your problem. Sometimes."

Wow...beardless Paul makes a great wimp. Just like bearded Paul made a great badass.

How's the reasonable facsimile coming along, by the way?

Also, the "Yakuza" discussion was amazing, I loved it. XD

Everyone, particularly Raymond, looks awesome. I like the way it sort of threw back to the old Dictator video. Also, Kane and Crawthorn: T-shirt.

But, "No easy marks" wasn't on the command don'ts list..

Children under 3 months

No CFC's in our FAEs (which by the way.. what??)
No Crippled Nuns

And isn't that a double negative? So you only can kill crippled nuns on Arbor day?

Hey, now I know who to call if I ever need hitmen. They're just my style!

Paul at the end rocked. I didn't notice that he was still beardless!

I loved Alex lighting his cigar at the end with the torch that he lit with the lighter.

And Ray, it's time to get a haircut when you look more feminine than Kathleen.

Only chumps ask for easy marks. Graham's character was asking for an easy mark, and was thus a chump.

It's not a double negative, just a poorly syntaxed list. They don't kill Crippled Nuns ever. They also don't kill anyone on Arbor Day.

As for FAEs, those are Fuel Air Explosives, also known as Thermobaric Weapons. They use atmospheric oxygen instead of carrying their own oxiders onboard. They're more powerful than convential bombs as a result.
