That video was awesome. Not only do I love the subject matter, but brilliant comedic timing from everyone. I especially liked the parallel raising of the swords. It makes them so much more hilariously creepy. Katheleen is all ready to go and Matt begins giving the practical advice of a grizzled veteran. I cracked up. Did that happen on the first try or were there some unfortunate objects that learned the 'riddle of steel' the hard way?

I love to crush my enemies!

I love to see them driven before me!

And oh . . . oh, do I love to hear the lamentations of their women!

Guess Crom is the god for me! :twisted:

Also, was that the Book of Stan I spied?

Great video. The callback to Door to Door was perfect. I was thinking of that video as I laughed my way through the main section. The stinger just nailed it.

Kathleen's facial expressions are getting really good. Between this and her work on the last couple of crapshots videos Kathleen's reactions to the events around her are becoming almost as much fun as the events themselves.

I liked Jer's subtle polishing the no soliciting sign on the door.

Which makes me curious, did graham get a lot of people trying to solicit to him or was it their when he moved in?

Fantastic video. Perfect pace and timing, which in a video that relies so heavily on complex dialogue is a huge accomplishment.

I echo everyone else's sentiments. Loved Jer's panache, Kathleen's face is terrifying, Matt is smarmy as heck, and the stinger was super epic.

So should we expect a Door To Door Trilogy then?

YES. I thought of the video referenced at the end as soon as I started watching this... But I forgot what it's called.

I love how Jer immediately answers Maple Sugar Pie, it's like diet crack.

The fan service at the end made me giggle.

Oh that was so good, I liked Matt and Kathleen's pitch, perhaps Crom is the god for me. Either that or he'll rip my organs out through my mind and make his eternal slave until a wolf eats the moon and the earth ends. So it could go either way.

My bad, I meant to say Crom but my mind was being destroyed in the past by magic tentacles.

All fixed now.

Really enjoyed this one. I seem to be one of the few who's never seen Door to Door. I was actually hoping the stinger would be a callback to Rapidfire, with the Crom's Witnesses being greeted by the Shush Guy.

Loved the callback to Door to door, it must be harder that ever to have fanservice while also having the joke stand by itself now that LRR is on the escapist.
Also, I see that the tag “maple sugar pie” is on the video… is that going to become a thing?

This.

And I look forward to more Maple Sugar Pie references...

Brilliant video, the acting in particular; Jer does plays an excellent prick. Kathleen's eye shadow/liner/facepaint/whatever was the perfect touch.

I'm guessing Hell just upgraded to Super Mario/Duck Hunt or something, because he seems a lot happier about his life.

Then again, Paul always was the more chipper of the Staanists, I always thought.
