I believe they are using a Canon Rebel T2i these days.

If it had being Tim, he likely would have said meddling hacks. However with Matt, star of "Son of a Bitch", and well known for his vulgarity, "hacks" would have being far more forced from him (or at least, his character), than "assholes". To me, it seemed like a perfect "crotchety old Matt" line.

Thanks, Lord Chrusher. My camcorder feels emasculated now, but at least I'm the wiser.

I just now realized that Zombaholic has a point. There is a two-minute-and-forty-second continuous shot right at the end. That's a damn long shot and a lot of interaction. Makes you wonder how many takes that took.

The curse in the stinger made me laugh the hardest, BECAUSE I was expecting "brats" and then he says assholes i lost it.

Yeah, I did a lot of lying around, prompting the quote from Paul "I see what you did there: I'm not even in this video and I'm doing more work than you!"

Also, the camera make was just a random detail ... Because little details add realism (or at least that's what the Dungeon Master's Guide leads me to believe) ;).

(The creepy doll character is from her webcomic Korea, she then made a real life one)

I hear a blood sacrifice was involved.

I think you have the cast mixed up. The one with the light coloured hair is Tim. The one with dark hair is James. And the one playing the drums is Ringo.

I thought this video was one of your best in a while. Although parody tends to be dependent on knowledge of the source material (which I am not really knowledgeable in), the sheer LRRness of this video made it awesome. Plus, in general, I am more fond of videos where you are yourselves rather than characters (cHustle, Phailhaus, behind-the-scenes content, etc.)

It's called a "tithe."

A blood tithe.


I think sacrifice implies killing. And (I'm pretty sure) Kathleen's still alive.

interestingly, when I suggested the stinger, I proposed it as "You meddling kids". It was at the suggestion of others that it became "you meddling assholes". To be fair though, they are kind of assholes. :p

Considering the cHustle vibe this video has, I think playing off that side of your character was a good choice. Copying a referenced line verbatim, without any semblance of personalization, would have made it like Family Guy. And nobody wants that.

The stinger reminded me a lot of the Scooby Doo live action movie, which ended with the villain saying "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling sons of bitches".

I laughed a during this video. I couldn't have hoped for a better halloween themed update :)

loved the video, also great that in the blog there was recognition that it could be part of the cH universe but the intro broke the flow, however putting the intro at the end with everyone in halloween costumes would have been sweet

Excellent video; I particularly enjoyed all the little references to things like Joystique, "The one with brown hair", etc.

By the way, if you don't want to telegraph in advance the fact that an episode is Hustle, it might be worth double-checking the Escapist blurb, because the line "LoadingReadyRun returns to the basement, but will they leave?" pretty much gives it away.

That does not mean that shed did not sacrifice someone or something else.

I guess I'd be arguing semantics, then. Blood sacrifice just sounded weird in my head.
