Also: at the end of the T shirt add you can hear someone (paul?) say cut.

I think the music tied together the whole video quite nicely. And were both of James characters supposed to be the same guy/ Or am I retarded and thats not James in the line.

Great video. I too dislike those who over-tweet and constantly update their status.

Have to compliment Graham on the ending. Prostate exam: always funny.

Evidently this was my 33 seconds of StLRRdom.

Twas fun to film, all I knew was to stand in a line and look like I was bored waiting for the concert. In the baking heat my first inclination was to pull out my phone and start pretending to play Tetris :P

Most LRR videos I quite enjoy. However, I haven't laughed so hard at an LRR video since "Wyy" and "PSA:Uwe Bowle". I have started using Twitter but I try to avoid overuse on it but can relate to the goings on in the video. Good work guys!

EDIT: Also in a bit of self-referential (meta?) irony, I posted a link to the video on Twitter. Hope you guys don't mind.

Great vid guys.

I'm not always a fan (at least the first time around) of your 'silent' movies (that aren't x ways to y) but this one had me smiling the whole time, with a few laughs sprinkled for flavor.

Point of note: In the credits, Lying's name is spelled "Maugan" thus lacking a vital "h." You might want to fix that :>.

I did! It was just something in his finger pointing...or perhaps it was the nasal qualities of his voice that shone through even from underneath the Vader-y voice effects!

I swore it was Brad too.

So much in fact, I quickly glanced down searching for his name in the credits.

I think that was Graham starting to laugh at the end of the ad.

You're 5'1" right? Even by my normal-Canadian(not giant LRR team) standard, that's small.

There are not enough street musicians in the world who play bass. I would actually consider giving a bass playing street musician money just for the novelty.

The shorter person in line for PV.


The one next to James? If so... I thought that person was a girl.

It was the wrist-coverings!

He's puny, especially compared to the crew.

He wears a ponytail (as his pic alludes)

And wrist coverings.

I think you can be forgiven. At least by me, who thought the same the first time round...

I am all man.

And look closer, those are fingerless gloves :P

If I was any kind of female, the strap from my laptop bag would be making it fairly obvious.

The crabcore bit made me chuckle.

I'm sure some of these jokes went a ways over my head, but it was overall quite entertaining.

I only just realized that in the ad, Jer is dressed like Han Solo. That's totally Morgan's gig, you guys!

~Alja~

Addendum: Also, Morgan now looks like a cross between Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords and Gaspard Augé from Justice. This is awesome.

Addendum 2: For the imaginatively impaired...

That's why he tagged his note about the nurse #royalhospital. Theoretically the nurse reads posts about his hospital.

As for the others, a lot of mobile devices, like the iPhone, have Twitter clients with a "Nearby" feature that just shows you people posting nearby.

I did think about this.

Oh, I had assumed that they were all coincidentally following him, and he hadn't yet realized the downside to his popularity.

Awesome. I didn't really laugh too much, but it was very well done. I plan to experiment with motion tracking in my next film, as well. :D
