What really bothers me is how people keep having a problem with the skateboard being behind Graham. They were nunchuck jousting! NUNCHUCK. JOUSTING.

WHY DOES THE INTERNET NOT COMPREHEND THIS.

And I reiterate: I want to see nunchuck jousting for real. Unfortunately, I own neither nunchucks nor skateboard. What's a 'bro' to do?

If we could find a second skateboard maybe we could do it up sometime. If Graham's game, I am.

Maybe make it a DVD special feature or something. :twisted:

And then Graham somehow manages to actually nail himself in the balls... and no one believes its authenticity.

It could be that people don't catch the phrase "nunchuck jousting" at the start, I know I didn't the first time I watched it. Graham's voice is considerably quieter than Matt's. If they don't notice the tags or read all the comments, it isn't clear that this is supposed to be a jousting match.

I have to say I'm both happy at your success and sad at the fact that the internet is indeed a "kick in the balls" kind of person. I am having fun trying to spread these virals around, though. I think I'll need to sneak one or two into the intermission of my next club event. 8)

Hah, I actually own some nunchucks, but no skateboard.

Also, I noticed when I looked up "Nunchaku" that they are illegal in Canada. I wonder if thats still the case or not. And if you guys would have been in trouble if a cop saw you.

They're fake foam nunchuks

Also, a cop car drove by during the first take while graham was lying on the ground.

Hey guys

I just watched this episode again and I noticed something. I don't exeactly know if it was mentioned before (too lazy to go tru all the pages of this thread).

However I found something in Adam's/James' room. I think the TV shows either Defender or Missile Command from the Atari 2600 or some similar game from this console. Could this be true? If yes, what do I win? :)

You must have a really good pair of eyes because I can hardly make anything out of that cut.

It's a bit better to see in movement. And I think I can also make out some typical Atari 2600 flickering - with those borders on top and bottom it very much looks like one of those both games or at least some similar ...

EDIT: And I just notice that the TV Adam and James use in front of the store looks so much exactly like my C64 monitor which is just one table away from me. :)

I find this rather amusing as your honorable foe does not have transport.

... just to clarify for everyone that is a fireplace. If I'm not wrong its probably an electric one that you buy at some place like Zellers. I used to work there and the fireplaces will always be in memory as the worst thing to help old people pick out.

Oooooh yeah, it is a fireplace. Looks pretty old though, so possibly C64 era.

One of the people who commented on Fallon's site said it had to be real, because the laugh was so convincing.

You may bow, now.

To be fair, I was laughing for real. even knowing what was coming it was still funny as hell.

I can understand that, just because you're filming funny stuff doesn't mean it isn't funny to you personally.

Out of all of those videos
the one where Graham takes a hit to the crotch and trips over a skateboard is doing the best with 104,370 views(at the channel that Graham linked)
and with 566,713 views(at failvideo's channel)

Oh, it's much, much bigger than that. Plenty of other sites it's on. Almost all of them over 100,000 views. They've probably broken a million at this point.

Break has about 250,000. And a bunch of other sites have a few thousand each.
