Man, I love me some Commodore Hustle! I've been watching for a few years now, and these videos are what get me the most excited about your site! My ideal world would have you guys getting paid to do these once a week with a network somewhere...or even on your own on the intarwebmotrons somehow. Whatever it takes to get me more awesome cH!

I don't really youtube much, so I can't really help out with this newest endeavor, but I suppose anything that'll bring more traffic this way can't hurt, right? I try to do what I can to send your video links around to my non-LRR-watching friends already though. Some of my poker group really, really liked the Poker before Dusk vid!
There are things in this world that I dislike. One of the things I dislike the most is a serious argument, well constructed, delivered by someone who makes themselves difficult to respect.

Most epic Ranger ever was Tommy's Green Ranger. The shield, the dagger, the Zord...they were all so fucking awesome.
sure, until you realized the guy did Power Rangers YEARS after everyone else grew up and realized their careers were dead...Then he just became creepy.

I liked this one a great deal, especially the beard thing, and the anime bit.

After the end joke, I realized that Matt's hair looked really great throughout. Did you plan that special with some kind of sophisticated haircut dealie, or did you just luck into it?

I really enjoyed the video. The virals idea was pretty good, but truth is, I am concerned.

The way I see it, only a few of those viral videos are proper youTube worthy virals. MyGirlfriendGames could be a standard youtube channel. MCKitKat could be the next KarenAlloy or LisaNova. What concerns me most though is that whole concept of the false identities. I just don't want LRR to become the center of some major controversy when people drop the bomb that these are all just a clever ruse to get people to one website.

Naturally, I won't say anything on YouTube (seeing as I rarely do comment on anything anyway) but I've voiced my concerns.

I just saw the Space Jump video. The contradiction of character between Morgan and Matt is hilarious. Now whenever I see a terrible Hunter in Left 4 Dead, I'm so telling him to "FUCKING SPACE JUMP!" Soon all of Left 4 Dead will be saying it!

My brain just imploded.


On the topic of virals.
First, a breakdown of the videos.
mygirlfriendgames: seems most legit. At the same time, the banter between Jer and Tally makes it feel like a scripted LRR video. I liked this one instantly.
georgegordon111: Was good, but Graham didn't flail around enough after the skateboard. Morgan showing up and crotch-kicking kinda shattered it all, but was IMO the funniest part of the video.
matt(withnumbers): Didn't watch all of it. Bill feels like he's being too serious, but I haven't seen a whole lot of this kind of video, so I can't judge too well. Not likely to go viral, but may add some legitimacy to the experiment.
mckitkat: Sorry Kathleen, you look far too intelligent to be shaking your boobs to the internet. If you could recruit Kate or someone even younger(We're going for "I'm stupid and sixteen"), it might work.
thewolfcrier: FUNNIEST! VIDEO! EVER! I lost it harder watching James scream at the camera than I did watching Chustle and Unskippable just now. I can't even write about it with a straight face. If any of the videos have a chance, I would put my money on this one.
samus5959: Matt seems a little too good at Metroid, and Morgan seems a little fake. This would make a good LRR video, though.

Furthermore: on the commenting and watching. Not everyone should comment on every video! If there are six videos that all have the same 20 people commenting them, someone's going to catch on. Also, I can't stress this enough, don't favorite more than one, and no cross-references. No shouting "SPACE JUMP!!!" in Things on my Head, no favoriting GeorgeGordon and Kitkat. The crew is similar enough that too much crosstalk between the videos will blow the illusion.

Finally: you are all way too coherent for Youtube comments.

Step 1: no punctuation allowed. Except for exclamation marks. Lots of exclamation marks.
Step 2: either no caps or all caps. Touching the Shift key is forbidden, you must write your entire comment with the Capslock key either on or off.
Step 3: you know all of those internet spelling and grammar things you hate? Let me rephrase that: u no all doze nternetz speling nd gramer thing u haet? Yeah, use 'em.

One or two designated people should be allowed to break these rules, but everyone should abide to complete the illusion.


Oh, and I know it's dead, but Paul needs to insert a Rickroll in one of the "things on my head" videos.

Pro tip: Use the audio preview. If half of what you hear is intelligible, you're doing it wrong.

I just realized, Paul with a hamster on his head has the same viewcount as Kathleen. Am I the only one that finds this fascinating?

Also, do I detect a hint of a mustache forming on Paul? Or am I crazy? Or is it just the lighting?

I have submitted submitted these wonderful viral videos onto Digg.

I made sure that I "spilled" everything incorrectly and with the intelligence of a 12 year old.

Here are the links, please do digg them so they can get to the front page. (hopefully)

Well, I've tried, if these are hindering our cause, I'll be glad to take these down.

But nonetheless, DIGG THESE PLEASE.

Probably just recorded at night, after shaved hair had a chance to grow in a bit.

Don't DIGG all of them. As with favorites, everyone choose one video to favorite, and pretend the others don't exist to minimize crosstalk.

Crosstalk will get our cover blown!

Oh crap! You are correct. Perhaps it wasn't such a good idea to submit all of these under one username.

In my family, when you pull a practical joke, you cover all your bases. I recall when my mom and I wanted to make my brother think we'd messed with one of his wind-up keychains, we spent fifteen minutes at the store looking for a keychain that sounded the same and had the same paint job as the one we were replacing.

Watching Kathleen while "Still Alive" plays is...........well, it brings up all kinds of feelings.....I may need to finally talk to a psychologist now.....yeah....I suggest you all try it too.

Fucking hysterical. I'm really starting to look forward to Hustle every month. I mean, I'm always pleased when Monday rolls around, but it's getting to the point where when we get down to the last few days of the month, I start thinking "Ooh, new Hustle next week."
Loved the viral vids. Space Jump was great. Graham's testicular ruination great.
Loved Kathleen's giant floating head.

More Arthur B. Borington please.
Failing that, more fake british Jer.

So, I submitted "Epic Nunchuk Fail" to break.com, and they main page'd it 4 hours later.

If nothing else, we get $200 out of that. So that's rad.
