Awsome video and wow massive callback to Morgan as Ashton Kutcher, and making fun of all the reality shows, se magnifique.
Nice job, you guys are just rolling out the funny stuff like it's nothing. This is going to be a good season.

When I saw James, Matt and Paul, I immediately thought, "Huh, an electrician, a ghostbuster and a prisoner..."

I found I chuckled at this more than laughed, but I still enjoyed it. I kept looking out for a fridg'd callback as well.

Indeed I do...

I do not know what happened there. I guess Matt is more of a ghostbuster in my mind than Alex.

That or you were just caught up in the Morgan on James action going on in the video.

I did not expect to see Morgan to show up... half expecting a 'FRIIIIIIIIIIDGED!' but PWN'D is awesome too. Also Morgan kissing James is not half as shocking as Matt.

I'm guessing you guys took advantage of the empty appartment before you moved in, eh? :)

I thought it was great up to the P'wned callback to Season 2, but after that it looks like the video was referencing shows I've never seen so it got weird. Can anyone fill me in? I'm probably missing something.

It was referencing reality television shows, including American Idol and the variety of dating game shows.

Well, the preview picture alone made my day! :mrgreen:

As far as the sketch goes, I preferred the earlier seamless transitions to the abrupt changes later on, so I didn't feel it ended as strongly as it could have. Still good times, though.

Just using my moms video to say, that, watching without my contacts in, and having taken the pills the dentist gave me for my wisdom teeth extraction half an hour ago, this video was in all senses, a reality tear. And any barb directed at RTV is a good barb.

A callback to Pwn'd? Woah, that's got to be the farthest callback you've done. I was somewhat expecting Jeremy Michaels to turn up, but the video was good even without his presence. I suppose most of the Escapist audience wouldn't recognize Michaels, but a "punk'd" parody is something most people will get, without knowing the significance of having Morgan as the host.

WOAH.

Was this a callback to "Perversion for Profit"?

To be honest, I liked the idea quite a lot, but I didn't really like how you kept essentially the same show for two minutes before Morgan showed up, and then changed your shows quite rapidly. Was it meant to be like that; i.e. we were watching the same show for two minutes and then something happened which crossed the satellite signals?

(Although come to think of it, those shows did actually meld together really well)

The shot of the room empty but for one creepy puppy doll was hilarious. Some day that puppy will have a video all to himself.

The soft focus (or blur, or whatever it was) during The Bachelor was a work of genius.

I don't want to make a butt of myself, but I didn't like this video as much as I could have. I liked the beginning part with Hoarders and Matt's character not actually having a problem, but after that it seemed to me like it slowly lost it's humor. Which makes me sad :cry:, because with the appearance of Morgan and the Manly Man Kissing it was a great video.

Oh well, you can't be satisfy everyone 100% of the time.

I'm slightly disappointed that there was no callback to "House Of The Dead".

But only slightly.
