I like Paul's teddie bear/lion? thing. He looks like such a peaceful sleeper.

So what was Tim waking him up for? I like to think it was something like the Slacker Olympics, like he needed to wake up to get to a sleeping competition or something equally ridiculous.

I think there was a continuity error: Paul's shirt was already wet (from a previous take?) before they put him under the faucet in the bathtub.

Funny video, though.

So much win in this one. I was just laughing all the way through.

Oh, nicely done. What a way to end the epic Paul's Circadian Rhythm trilogy.

Also, did I just see a callback to The Aftermath, or was that another coincidence?

Couple questions...

Was that Axe body spray being used as mace?
If it was, what does Paul now smell like?
And why would you mace someone to wake them up?

Loved the episode.

Haha. That was a very good x to y vid. One of the best, in my opinion.
As usual, Paul is awesome.

Also, the RPG was funny. I think it could be expanded. :)

To be honest, this video really wasn't for me, but I can appreciate the effort that went into it, and I liked the callbacks.

Always happy to see a new X ways to Y video, and this one didn't disappoint me. Loved the return of the 'Daddy's got you'! As a one-time recipient of a house invasion in the style of The SWAT, that made me laugh with memories.
And major kudos to Paul for being able to put up with all that! Consummate professional indeed.

Massive win for The RPG. I just played through Chrono Trigger again and was thinking the exact same thing.

Do you guys seriously play all those instruments or were you guys just making a cacophony of noise? I know Tim plays guitar for reals but I dunno about the rest of you guys. :)

BTW, nice job Bill, that was hilarious. :D

Awesome video guys. Loved the callbacks and the other gags. :D

If you guys don't actually play those instruments, where did you collect them from?

i would love to hear the audio for some of these, the free jazz and Breakfast DJ ones in particular.

brilliant video. for the third time in a row LRR has had me in stitches. So much for LRR going downhill since the move to the escapist, june has been an absolutely brilliant month so far.

Keep up the good work guys.

I could tell just by looking at his finger motion that Matt doesn't know how to play the saxophone at all. But you would also know that if you listened to one of the old podcasts where someone asked which members of the crew played instruments.

Bill is missing from the credits. Might want to fix that at some point.

Most of the instruments were what people had hanging around from high school.

Pretty sure that's actually Matt's sax that he played in high school.
I think he just wasn't trying to make it look real.

Yup, Bill isn't credited in this one (yet.)

Anyway, I'm smiling too hard to type an appropriate response to the video. I'll be back later. :)
