I now feel severely guilty for getting even the tiniest bit impatient for this video. IT WAS SO EPIC!!!!! I laughed so much at the Bill Fail Lol sign and all the Value Added stuff. The 'I'll grab a pen and tell her' line was hilarious! (Even though I only got the pun the third time I watched it. Don't blame me, I'm tired.) After watching the montage of DB clips I realise how much awesomeness I missed! At least I can catch up on what I didn't see soon though. And for the record, we think you're awesome too.

This video is so dense with allusions I am afraid it will collapse under it's own massive awes-ity (like gravity but awesome)! Very few times when someone says something will be worth the wait, but this definitely was worth the wait.

And I laughed when I noticed the lazy susan being used as a steering wheel.

I watched a lot of Dbus but as others have said it just goes to if no one person can see it all, how much work and time you guys put into it. Thanks not only for this amazing recap of DBus but for actually doing DBus not only for the kids but for your fans too. You guys rock!

I KNOW. I did the mental equivalent of a spit-take when I heard that line. Andy is a song-writing GOD, and now all of a sudden, I am so enthused over the idea of the people at the Escapist getting to see more of Andy's brilliance whenever he gets the time to do an LRR video.

Can't wait till the podcast and for the eventual frame-by-frame dissection of all the in-jokes on the wiki.

I watched Suspend Your Disbelief recently and now "Tuscon or bust" keeps merging into "Come along." So now I have two Andy songs running through my head...

Hey, this was up way earlier than last year's post-Desert Bus update, right?

Also, great job on the video. Any plans for a "Green Noon" style making-of?

Thanks a lot. The sheer volume of awesome that you stuffed into this video collapsed in upon itself and started tearing my condo apart as everything got sucked into it's gravitational pull. Had to toss my wife's Twilight dvd in there to cancel it out. Now I'll have to explain to her why that's missing, And why there's a 10 foot spherical hole where our computer room used to be.

Lucky my laptop wasn't in there.

Sorry, LRR, I am delighted beyond the capacity for all rational thought. You'll have to wait until later to get anything more than "SQUEEE!" from me.

That's some awesomesauce right there.

It's hard to say what I liked best. The effects were groovy as hell, and Andy appears to be the personification of genius.

It's made me look forward to next year's Desert Bus already.

I don't think I can add anything to what has already been said. I think this video has probably the highest production value of any video you guys have done to date. Absolutely fucking awesome work, Graham, for putting it all together. Love the large heads. Adobe after effects to get them matching up with their bodies?

The only thing I can do now is list all the references and subtleties I noticed:

  • "Now showing: New Moon 4 Times in One Day"
  • The bus is called Sakimori I, and it's been mirror-flipped
  • One of many "Value Added" references
  • "Krose and the Ham Banners - One Night only, WIlliam Johnson Memorial Theatre"
  • "Catgirl Coffee"
  • Andy's head switches from a front to 3/4 view
  • "It's hard out there for an octopimp"
  • The bus passes a bus stop in its silhouette journey shot
  • Tumbleweed
  • The steering wheel is some kind of bread board (?)
  • Is it Andy playing the harmonica?
  • Andy's family photo isn't static
  • "...grab a Penn and Tell-her..."
  • "Gay Bar"
  • The busses in Vegas are Sakimori III and IV
  • The stations in Tucson and Vegas are suspiciously similar, but not.
  • Mustache Paul
  • "I am appoint"
  • "What stays in Vegas stays in Vegas" - poker before dusk
  • Kathleen's arms are in front of her head while her neck is behind it
  • The coffee stand has been mirror-flipped
  • Jackpot $137,000
  • The "don't disturb the driver" sign is also in Chinese
  • "Teller's discount lunches"
  • "Bill Fail LOL"
  • "How's My Driving? Am I listening to Queen? Call 1-800-555-FAIL"
  • "West Phailadelphia" - A Fresh Prince reference also?
  • "While in Vegas let me take you to a gay bar"
  • The number plate is 137000
  • See the amazing Ken 'Value Added' Steacy: increase donations right before your eyes"
  • Another bus stop

Once again, I can't stress how wonderful this video is. So much effort. So much win.

I want to personally thank Graham and Andy for setting the bar so high we can't possibly hope to ever touch it again, thereby making our collective body of work look like shit by comparison.

Thanks, dicks.

So many awesome memories conjured up. I watched it twice just to pause it and read all the signs.

I'm pretty sure all memes have already been stated, so I'll just be appoint in my own quiet way :)

WELL DONE GUYS AND GALS!

So, I uh... Wow.
That was quite frankly, uhm, yeah.
There are few words that can describe LRR and everyone related to it.
Here are a few:
Magnanimous
Prodigious
Staggeringly good
Fans of Bacon.
The thing is, none of them do you even the slightest bit of justice. Not in a long shot. So, you are simply: LRR.
I wish I could just go to Canada and shake all of your hands and buy you dinner. Because that would be the least I could do.
Just, top drawer guys.
For everything.

Edit: Bacon also receives capitalisation as it is in fact deserving of being a proper noun.
