Nice video!

Umm am i the only one that thought:

Ouch! a fist full of glass shards that's gotta hurt.
Ok it was a small vial but still... owwieee!

On behalf of all us LRR (and Brad) fans out there, I'd like to preemptively welcome you to England. York's a great city, (as I imagine you already know.) My brother was working there last year. What made you choose England (or York), if I may ask?


I'm a freeter. Like Goldenboy, except I don't wear the shades.

I did my undergrad thesis on medieval drama. The York Plays are a big part of what's left of that tradition.

I didn't think this video was odd. I mean it's lrr so if you think they're odd then yeah. I'm sorry to see brad be gone for a while but the promo and the punchline to this video both made me laugh really hard. Good job guys.

You are doing a masters in medieval studies and now Nathan Fillion is starring in a show called Castle.

Hah, yeah. There is that celebrity lookalike photo thing linking me and Nathan Fillion somewhere.

Since credits aren't done for t-shirt ads, just want to draw attention to the less familiar faces in there: That's Alex Steacy shooting at me (I only mention as he's all wee tiny in the background and you mightn't have noticed who it was) and Mia "I'm-not-sure-if-she'd-like-her-last-name-attached-to-this-online" looking on in awe as I solve the rubix cube opposite Paul.

Good video, agreed that it really wouldn't have worked if it had been shorter.

Goodbye Brad (I say this, I'm living in England now), pop in now and then why not?

Well, that makes sense then. I had no idea what a freeter was, so I asked Urban Dictionary to educate me:
"[...] someone in their 20's who is moving from job to job, mainly part time jobs which pay small wages. There are 3 types of freeters, ones who are seeking their dream careers thus doing these odd jobs, those who refuse to become 'wage slaves', and mostly those who have no choice."
Sounds like fun! Well, kinda. I'm sure you'll enjoy England, as long as you can get past our weather. Lyingingbedmon wasn't lying in the last LRRCast, the sun is a myth we don't believe.

Are you gonna be studying all year, or have time to explore the UK at all? Us students have it fairly good, save for the debt thing!

Should I be trying to collect royalties or something for this video?

p.s. Good luck in England, Brad

Epic t-shirt ad, even if it means missing Brad for a while. I could watch ads all day if they were as entertaining as LRR's usually are.

As for the video, I respect that it was all done in one shot, but it just seemed unusual to me. When the camera swung around at "You see this building?" it was a little disorienting. Maybe I'm just used to the crisp cuts of other videos.

didn't find this video very funny, but I did still enjoy it and the dialogue was witty, so I guess I'd say it was good, not great

I leave for Blighty on Monday morning and spend all Monday in Langoleer-land and land on Tuesday. Going to spend a couple days in Londinium before training down to see my old nanny in Brighton. I know there are some field schools during my studies, and I've applied to be an international correspondent on glimpse.org. Please don't compete with me, Internets, I wants that job! So the short answer, maybe?

Another great video. This one was especially topical for me as it's student union election time at my University. Candidate speeches/mudslinging sessions before every lecture FTL. Almost makes me wish one party would hold the uni to ransom with smallpox, at least that'd be more interesting.

Woah. Well, at least you're keeping busy. Imma just gonna be studying/dossing about in Durham - probably studying. For three years. Good luck with it all, anyhow. Exploring or not, at least you're in abroad! No way I can afford to be doing that... :shock:

Loved it. Great t-shirt ad with Brad (and that commercial has needed some good parody-ing), and up until the end I was going back and forth on whether or not Tim's character was actually stupid, or just....being stupid.

Is it me or did Jeremy have a bit of trouble keeping a straight face through that ending?

Also, this is the kind of trouble I'd expect to end up in. Fist-bumping someone and ostensibly killing the both of us. Seeing as I refuse to high-five, I mean.

That's an idea that, as a limey (or whatever you call us!) I can get behind!
Perhaps LRR should set a network of foreign correspondents? They could start right here.
EDIT: Wait, what DO Canadians call us Brits? :? I'm all confused now!

This one seemed a little slow and repetitive at first, but the last 10 seconds made it worth it. Especially the cracking glass sound at the end.

Wow really good video this week I love the camera angles, especially when you cut in front of Jer to get a shot of Tim then zoom back out to show them walking.

Good job walking backwards too, I would have fallen.

Despite its flaws, Offensisensitivity is still one of my favourite videos, especially from that era of LRR.
