The C Word

Postby Paul » 16 Dec 2005, 18:02

This was the video we were trying to shoot last week, standing in for a video we couldn't shoot this week. Next week, we will also probably have a video.

That's kind of our thing.

Does Bill say something about Jesus in the beginning, or am I hearing things?

I'm always dubious about wishing customers "Merry Christmas" in lieu of "Have a nice day!" in case I thoroughly offend somebody. Then again, seeing as Christmas turns malls into buzzing activity centres of death, I seem to thoroughly offend people on a regular basis just by smiling too much or telling them how much they're ringing up on their Visa. So I might as well...*sigh* ah retail...

That was great. I think the better approach is just to rotate holiday greetings without ever thinking about what holiday that person celebrates. Tell the pope "happy kwanza", he's not listening to you anyway.
But you missed Diwali!
And Winter-een-mas!
But a hilarous video despite. Happy Friday!

Well, strictly speaking, Winter-een-mas is in the last week of January so it's in the wrong end of the month to count around those traditions. And now I have a spare xbox controller to make the scepter, oh I'm so happy.

Longtime reader, recent registrant. This short prompted me to comment --- hilarious! Festive candelabra! Awesome.

The sad truth is, here in the USA there are communties where this not actually satire, but realism.

Yeah about that, I was thinking: Did you make this because of the recent "Holiday Tree" Fiasco here in the US? I don't remember where it was...but someone called a "Christmas Tree" a "Holiday Tree" and it kinda blew up in their faces...

Great video guys :D

I don't know if this was the one, but I was in Seattle and they had a "Holiday Tree" outside Westlake Center.
Now, I happen to celebrate Christmas. However I do not wish to offend anyone who doesn't. But COME ON!

No other "winter" holiday has a tree. Who are you trying to fool?
Jesus?

Wait...

What non-"winter" holiday has a tree?

Okay, Arbor Day.

How true and relevant this video is!

CHRISTMAS Trees are pagan, not religious, Christmas is the only holiday that has a tree, so if it's that big a deal, why have a tree at all?

The tree that actually caused the most controversy is the one in Rockefeller Center in NYC in front of the NBC Studios. "Saturday Night Live" recently did a similar sketch on the topic where they de-Christmas-ized Christmas songs.

Good stuff, once again ^_^

Graham and Paul were excellent secret agents. And those were awesome hats. Kind of reminded me of.... hmmm.... Evil Corp! (*hint hint nudge nudge*)

I usually try to say happy holidays to people because you can't really go wrong, and quite a number of my friends don't celebrate Christmas.

The only thing that might have been better is I thought the close up on Graham was a but too close up consider the style of the rest of the video.

You insensitive fuckers!

I'm offended by your disregard of me. It's not a Menorah at all, it's a Hanukia (With a gutteral H). Menorah has 7 candle thingums, a Hanukia has 8 and one extra (for lighting them all, it's the thingum in the middle). But now you have corrected my ways, I shall now call it by it's non-denominational name, thank you.

I've been waiting so long for one of these, and I'm so happy, thank you guyds *huggle*. And the bit at the end is class, without doubt. But the best bit was the bit at the end, without doubt.

Yup, it was the one in NYC...for some reason I thought it was Boston:? probably because I was half-asleep when I heard it every single time (at home, in the car, in class..)

But there was one in Seattle? I'M ASHAMED!! Where was it, I'ma go burn it down :shock::shock:

Postby xgollum » 17 Dec 2005, 11:55

Hitting Morgan with the big candy cane was priceless, and him babbling and going through the window at the end was awesome. Poor Bill. What will they do to him?

I did think it was a little odd that Morgan was dumb enough to think kind was a "C" word, but that he knew what a Menorah was (or a Hanukia, whatever).

I didn't realize Seattle had a holiday tree too. Jesus.

For what it's worth, the decorating of the tree is in fact, of pagan origins, having to do with the solstice and saturnalia. We should just all wish everyone a happy winter or a merry solstice or something. This is just getting ridiculous.

Does anyone really celebrate Kwanzaa?

Bring on Wintereenmass, I say.

Oh, and Graham, your twitching and struggling for self control when Morgan kept saying the C word was great.

You guys are just too damn good.

did you not see my post? i have celebrated kwanzaa on at least three occasions.
not admitedly none of those were actually on kwanzaa. and none of us were black. and people generally just got really drunk and set fire to chickens (on successive years the police and fire department were called).

but nonetheless!

NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!

(Yeah, you said it so someone had to do it.) The background is that everytime someone said it the cardinals would rush in and shout that, it wasn't *just* the sketch 'down at t'mill' for all ye that were notin the knowledge of knowing.

Then I had to walk 20 miles to school, barefoot, on broken glass, uphill BOTH WAYS!

Like I said, it was 20 miles there, 30 back. House just kept on getting further away.
