Nice use of mom there, Graham.

Also, I really liked the acting in this video. I laughed because it didn't seem like the characters were particular concerned at the absurdity of their situations.


Edit: Misspelled "their" OH SHIIIIIIIIIIII

Graham's mum is always great in the video. Shame she didn't call Graham on the use of bastard.

Oh man, the sheer absurdity of this had me laughing the whole way through. I immediately wentband found other people and made them watch it too.

Now to wait for the outcome of the bit at the end.

(For a brief moment, I thought Graham had something very special to ask Cam. How do you even make a decent celebrity couple name out of that? Grahameron?

On an added note I expected that the first stinger was going to be Matt trying hard to sidle off screen for a minute.

Absolutely hilarious and totally absurd. Like Yaxley, I immediately went and found people to share in my viewing pleasure.

This is two weeks in a row of super awesomeness. That was normally the amount of laughing I do at a Monty Python sketch. Well done.

Obligatory D'AAAAWWWWWWWWWW.

Great sketch. I loved the absurdity of it and how the two characters just went with it as if it were totally normal, I'm a huge fan of humour like that. The post stinger proposal was awesome. Can't wait to find out the answer (i'm rooting for 'yes')

Or a Pokemon.

I laughed. Graham's mum's lines of, "Ethan, you never call," and "Language, Ethan!" were spot on.

Brava.

This is their third time relaying a marriage proposal, I'm sure they can come up with something unique for you too.

During the outdoor part of the filming, did you have to explain things to passersby?

I love the absurdity. Also, I think Grahameron is a great celeb couple name.

OMG, how sweet! That's super awesome of you guys to do! Best Magic game ever! I'm glad she said yes :)

The video was super awesome too. Well acted and extremely well edited. Fast paced and completely absurd! Graham's Mom was indeed perfect.

I don't usually post when I have nothing to say other than a generic liked it, but this one was so good I will post just to say how hilarious it was.
Very.

Honestly the proposal was the worst part about this, I'm not saying the proposal was bad, just that the rest of it was that awesome.

Absolutely loved it. For me, these are my favorite sort of scripts; fast, punchy back-and-forth sketches that are staged and executed so perfectly. I think it's really where you shine. Simple, yet perfect. Brilliant writing, Graham!

I have to say, Graham's mom was spot on in her line delivery and her lovely accent (of course! Why wouldn't she be?) And everyone played their part swimmingly. Jer, confused and deaf, was hilarious, as was the switch back and Matt's struggled hobbling at the end.

That wig Kathleen was wearing makes anyone look instantly ridiculous, doesn't it?

Also the light filter, whatever it was, set the mood perfectly, and the editing seemed particularly crisp here. Good show! Easily one of my favorite videos!

I love it normally when you do relatively short stuff like Smallpox, but this is absolute gold. It was exactly as long as it should have been, and somehow felt longer than it was because it was so densely packed with jokes... or, well, one joke, but many iterations culminating in sheer hilarity. :P

I was sort of hoping and expecting that the thumbs up at the end would be accompanied by the same noise as the one at the end of "Wraith's Proposal".
Aawwwwwww.

Well, that was a nicely braised filet of epic bathed in awesome-sauce and a side of d'awwww. :)

I kinda expected the stinger to be Matt shuffling the chair more and then falling over when it reached the grass; this was better (as I can't really think of any closing line for 'my' stinger).

Short but sweet; as WAYF said, making it longer wouldn't have made it any better. Props, guys!

And may Joseph and Diana have much happiness and fun ahead of them, multiplied by togetherness! :mrgreen:
