Just Drive

Postby Matt » 25 Jan 2010, 08:05

A fugitive runs, or at least rides, to escape his pursuers:

I didn't actually expect the punchline for this one, so my laugh at the end was 100% genuine. Nice job.

Very good vid. Criminal!Paul was hilarious.

What was with the random music at the end though?

That was so funny! XD Excellent job!
I kept laughing through the whole thing, as it got more and more ridiculous!

I liked how the piggy-back ride gave it that extra level of ridiculousness, and then the stinger went one better.

I also enjoyed the... meta-humor, I guess, of watching Matt panic about not knowing how to drive while knowing that he is one of the few among the crew who can.

Come to think of it, with the exception of the gun, this reminded me a lot of driving lessons with my dad.

You know what is scary? That picture you put up of James a few days ago. Seems like that one belongs in the private collection (thats where I keep my copy anyway, matted and framed).

Loved it though. The idea of learning how to drive because the gunman in the back seat needs to get away. Classic!

But do all police and Canada wear sneakers?

Jesus Christ on a dashboard!!! I don't know why Matt couldn't get the hang of driving, everyone I know had to take lessons with a gun to the back. Wuss.

When did you guys get a second cop outfit.

Loved it, incidentally. I really, really laughed. The ending was perfect.

Of all things to pick nits about, though, the obviously fake gun took a bit away from my suspension of disbelief.

Alright, so for a second, I was really disappointed. When the main part ended, I thought "Wow, wasn't really much of a punchline there." The joke was really just the ridiculousness of it, and the cop giving the other a piggyback ride accentuated that. As for the criminal teaching Matt how to drive, it was funny and well executed, but I'm almost certain I've seen that done in something else.
So when this video ended, I was disappointed, and scared at what the Escapist audience's reaction would be.

But then I saw the stinger, and it saved the entire skit. I cracked up. It was an extremely clever and hilarious ending, and I just pray that everyone who watches the video will stick around through the credits to watch it, because THAT was the real joke.

I found the visuals of the bike-jacking and the dual piggyback rides hilarious, but the stinger was the best. Good to see Ben in a video again, he delivered the stinger perfectly.

But actually not really. The street signs were shot (by me) at a different time and place from everything else, for complicated reasons.

I'm loving these false endings - really adds to the video.

Oh and that was the best LRR I've seen in a while, especially the impromptu driving lesson :)

Best Cops Ever, seriously, they never give the criminals any form of advantage, always staying one step ahead (or at least not one behind).

Great sting too, kinda say it coming, but like that matters, good joke regardless.

This was great.
I loved how Paul's character was teaching Matt to drive, when Matt's the one who has a license.

All I could think about when I noticed that figurine of Jesus on the dashboard was that line in cH: "oh, I was just telling Matt what a great Jewish friend you are" referring to Ben.

Completely out of context with the video, but I thought it rather funny.

That was brilliant, Paul makes a convincing criminal, coincidence?

Brilliant! For some reason, I failed to see the stinger coming.

I'm guessing the way the main skit ended was a parody of something specific: if so, what was it?

The hilarity in this one lasted from when Paul tried teaching Matt how to drive. But when they got out of the car, i thought they would've traded places and so i did not expect the hilarity from the ensuing modes of transportation.

That was some hot cop on cop action there at the end. I really like that it is evident that the hijacker knows how to drive a stick, but it never crosses his mind to just take the car and drive off.
