I would vote to support you guys but apprantly the voting system wants me to sign up for Facebook and thats a strict no no for me.

However you may have a proxy vote for KABLAM but I don't really like Overload all that much.
It was really too big:

I give you this instead

Awesome! Just voted for both. If everyone votes, your numbers can jump through the roof! I think we can vote once per day too. My single vote seemed to propel your rating by like 2%.

Having to sign up to vote sucks, but the videos are good.

I think Graham should re-cut the Overload composite so that it's 15 minutes long, get rid of the music and resubmit it as 'Kubrick' ;)

Brutal. I saw KABLAM up in the top rated page one for like 5 seconds... Someone must be going on and like voting down everything, haha.

I don't know who to ask this to on the Crew but in the Overload ad...

Did we just see Graham's o-face?

Probably best to ask Kathleen.

I think that was more of a "WHOA...dude!" face or a "Fizz" face than anything else.

They're both good, but where they stand out from the crowd is in production value. They're both really well executed, whereas most of the other ones are people dicking around with their handicams in their dirty, poorly lit living room.

I up-voted both of them.

The contest page kind of pisses me off, though. There's an ENORMOUS random imagine in the background of EVERY PAGE that takes like, thirty seconds to load. WTF? Why do I need a giant picture of a goldfish behind my video?

Can anyone view that Inferno video that's sitting at the top....

99.9% and I can't view it, I smell something fishy going on... (Oh god it's salmon flavored doritos)

There appears to be a lot of foul play going on with the voting. Most of the top voted ones are really bad.

Luckily there's a judging component as well, so it doesn't depend on the user votes by any means. I've watched a bunch of the other ones and I couldn't find any that were better than LRR's.

My favourite one is KaBLAM :D

Well, I'll vote for ya, see what brings.

My favorite one is Overload, but one thing I really miss about that video is a gratifying "thump" when Graham hits the pavement.

Funny stuff, I thought KaBLAM was the better of the two. I still voted for both of them.

And I am hoping to see Graham's Overload reaction in the future

Jesus the other ads are bad. Ah internets, you have disappointed me once again.

Whereas the LRR ads actually... made me want to go buy some Doritos. Curses!

Of the two, KaBLAM seems more like a real ad to me. Plus it's fracking awesome!

Noticed a video similar to KaBLAM: http://doritosguru.ca/sharpimpact/Dorit ... p%20Impact

I think KaBLAM executes it better though.

The 99.9% one throws an error because the username of the person who submitted it has an ampersand in it, and the username is used as part of the URL. You can still see it on YouTube here. It's terrible, though.
