I've been following the this thread with the guys in my office, and we're laughing our guts out at the success of the youtube videos, but something was bugging me about the CH vid. Everyone's been saying "Awesome Power Rangers bit at the beginning" but that didn't jive with my rosy Saturday morning recollections. It took a YouTube search of "By your powers combined" to be sure, but there's no doubt about it:

I've finally found someone else who ever watched "Captain Planet"!

Also, I'd love to complete my collection of original Commodore 64 hardware with the monitor James is playing XBox on. Mine died in the mid-nineties and its the only piece I'm missing.

Oh it's totally supposed to be Captain Planet. I mean, there's some Rangers in there, but Paul wrote that whole sequence and he was totally going for Captain Planet.

...First time I forget about to watch a LRR video in almost a year, and this happens. :roll: I can't believe how well these took off in three days. I love the space jump one and the girfriendgames ones. Nunchuck doesn't really do it for me, though. I wish I had a youtube account so I could join in on the commenting party, but it's probably just as well that I don't. :) Oh, and Matt, your hair really does look nice.

P. S. Captain Planet is AWESOME!

I'm...speechless and a little misty eyed. I mean, Captain Planet wasn't on very long, and there are people out there who've never heard of it.

For all its lowbrow humour and ballkicking/tit waving insanity, YouTube is useful as "the place old cartoons go to die". I mean, where else can you find a medley of Saturday morning cartoon themesongs, or just about every episode of "Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot"?

Well, that proves that you guys have truly perfected the art of the nut shot in internet comedy.

It may not be your most intellectual humor, but watching Graham get hit in the balls never gets old.

You seriously didn't know other people who've seen that? It was a childhood favorite. I think I'd be hard pressed who didn't know what I was talking about.

On another note, it seems that Graham's video is also starting to be copied and re-uploaded all over youtube. There are no less than 7 separate copies of it on the first page of the results for "nunchuck fail" (compared to nunchuck guy's two results). Let's go internet!

YES! I was really waiting for this. I actually submitted to the email address. (But I'm sure I'm not the only one.)

Now it is only a matter of time.

An observation though: I note that the videos are linking to each other in the related video section. Perhaps youtube is on to us?

Hey graham. Do you find all the vulgar comments about kathleen and her breasts to be a bit akward?

Either there's people who work at google/youtube who watch LRR and figured it out.
Or they're just that good with their related videos lol

Probably it's because it's the same people watching/favoriting/commenting them. Ah well. Not like we could expect that people WOULDN'T figure it out.

It's YouTube, we expected it.
It was her idea, too.

Of course, it would be interesting to see what percentage of those comments are actually from LRR fans....
