I mainly get google based ads, they are always very loosely related to the video titles, like for the latest commodore hustle, the ad was for dance lessons teaching the hustle. The upside is every time that I click the X to close it they go away and don't come back. Irritating? Yes. But I'm not going to be losing sleep over the 3 seconds it takes me to click on that X the size of a pinhead.
The hardest part of being me? The mustache.

I don't own a salad spinner, but I do spin salad, just the old fashioned way.

Me too. I live in Midwest U.S., though. This is the problem where closing the ads at the bottom doesn't close them? That's what I'm having. It's a little irritating. :?

I agree that this is, by far, the best cHUSTLE yet and feels like a sitcom. I'd recommend the writing system Kathleen mentioned be used as a template for future episodes.

I don't know why a lot of people assumed the ball kick would come at the end of the video. I thought it would come in next episode. It didn't matter, because I'd forgotten all about it by the end of this video so it came as a complete surprise. Graham's little victory dance afterward was icing on the cake. There are many other things I enjoyed greatly, but they've been covered by the previous zillion posts.

The one thing I'm curious about is why there was a joke after the ball kick. I thought the "sideways TV" comment was a great line, but it gets completely lost in the laughter from the ball kick. If it could've been put in just before the phone conversation with Matt, I think it would've played a lot better.

When the only criticism I can think of is that a really funny bit gets lost in the reaction to an hilariously funny bit, it's a pretty damn good video. More please!

Loved this, made me watch the whole C-Hustle series again. Matt: I'm sorry but your "pain" is our pleasure ^_^

Also had to point this out: Graham sang the wrong lyric at the beginning. He sang "Run FOR the hills" when the correct lyric is "Run TO the hills"

Just thought I would point that out.

The reason some people aren't seeing it (like myself, for example) is because they're regional ads, so not everyone gets them.


Im not certain as to what exactly the ads everyone else is describing, but I am getting Google ads in the bottom 1/4 of the video that does have an (X) to close it, it's still kindof irritating though.

After watching Fixer and listening to the podcast my imagination sparked something hilarious, at least to me. Imagine if you will:
...
Morgan cackling maniacally as he is running down the street followed closely by Matt. Matt is doing his best to keep up as he whines in a pitch high enough to alert all the dogs in near proximity, "Hey give that BAAAAACK!" (Kind of like in Fixer with the coffee)
Clutched tightly in Morgan's one hand is Matt's "License to Wildly Suck at Video Games" and in the other Matt's version of Megaman.
...
Well it made me chuckle for a bit.
I wish I had the artistic skills to draw it, but alas i do not.

Wow! Just wow! That has to be the best online video I've seen any where online in months. I laughed so hard. I like the fan payments you gave out be putting self references in there, like card board man and frag your...but face...pwn...? Well, you know what I'm saying.

Very, very good work.

Great one, but not posting because of that...

The intro was obviously RB2, but RTTH is from RB1, and isn't transferable...

Hmmm....

You should go to Lost Planet, they need to deploy more powerful acronyms.

Shh, that needn't be known at this time.

I play (and hang out in #rockband) RB too much to bother not abbreviating song and title names.

I enjoyed GG&HT from RB1 more then SB in GHWT, while PA by DT in RB2 falls between the two. I use to have trouble with FwD and Tkar, but after practice I could FC them with ease.... ES1 was better then ES2 in my opinion. Out of the albums for DLC I prefer TCatS by FF over BSSM by RHCP, and enjoy the JP album as well.

>_>

I just rambled there with abbreviation.

Don't take to heart anything mentioned there.

Yeah! I forgot to mention that. I don't know whether that's from a computer screen or the sun reflecting off the windshields of cars driving by outside or what.

The laptop(?) wouldn't throw light that well in a room lit that way.
