Four PS4s

Postby Graham » 16 Dec 2013, 02:26

He's back, and he's upgraded his collection.

It took forever, but we finally found the PS4s we needed to shoot this thing.
Big thanks to the Doubleclicks for their awesome song!

A fitting follow up to a classic, and a lovely song. Well done.

Ahh no 'and this cake'?

Brilliant.

It was a bit predictable, but not in a bad way. I enjoyed it quite a bit. And the song was a nice addition.

Also, this is unrelated, but this episode made me kind of have one of those 'oh my god we're in the future moments.' Pretty quick after this was uploaded, I got a notification on my phone, which I tapped to watch the episode instantly. That's... kind of something amazing, which I take for granted.

While it didn't match the maddeningly rage-inducing heights of the "also, I have this cake" joke of 3 PS3s, it was overall just as good a sketch, and the song was perfect. As were the stinger and the maths joke.
I consider myself thoroughly trolled.

I do feel like Graham isn't getting into the Holiday spirit. Why is there still not a Christmas hat on his avatar?

The long awaited video. I don't mind that some of the gags were predictable, because this video was expected. Like CoD.

Also, the PS4 commercial on the TV was a nice little touch.

3 PS3s, 4 PS4s, 1 XBOne...

If we extrapolate backwards, for the original PlayStation, would he have one (PS1) or ten (PSX)? Or zero, as the name had no explicit numbers in it?

Also, I shudder to think how many Ataris he must own.

Lol, I love the stinger. He just looks down upon the xbone because he can only have one. Was hoping you'd do this, it was worth the wait. GJ

That was great. I liked the GRAHAM ST sign above Paul's head when he's sitting on the couch.

The "Value Added" Doubleclicks! :D

This was inevitable.. And thoroughly entertaining. Though it really does minimise the excitement I have about getting a second shipment PS4 between today and Thursday (whenever I get the call from my local that mine is in). THANKS, OBAMAPAUL.

I also absolutely love the various stacking arrangements in the background. Nice touch! AND FOUR PAULS! THERE WERE FOUR PAULS.

Convenient that the Xbox One makes for a brilliant foot-stool! Also, Microsoft cannot numbers. The Xbox "One" was released in 2001! Silly Microsoft..

Oh, and clever Secret Life of Toast spinning reference! ;)

I'm pretty sure they were, considering that they were apparently hard to wrangle. They had sent out requests from locals to borrow/rent their PS4s for the vid.

I have been waiting for this since that announcement of the system. Love the addition of the Xbox 1.

Totally accurate, except for all the times I'm not.

I wonder if we could get an unbranded copy of the video on *shudder* Youtube, just to ensure maximum hatemail for Paul.

First things first: this was fantastic! It had a different pace to it than the original, but I thought it was still extremely funny.

Second, there couldn't have been a better video for the Return of the King Beard. That shot with the Three PS3s thumbnail set in frame next to current Paul makes it look like the facial hair has grown in direct proportion to his smugness. :lol:

Awesome video! For some reason I didn't think you guys would actually do it, but...wow, you did it, and with style.

(Although...wait. Those suckers are real? I'm...kind of amazed how much the PS4 looks like my old vcr with a piece of shiny plastic stuck over the top half. Wow.)

Yeah, really. That storage locker he probably has full of Commodores and Vics probably pales in comparison to that! At least he only had to buy two Apples... :mrgreen:

I think this was a good sequel to the original, and I enjoyed the song from The Doubleclicks.

I'm frankely less disappointed about the lacke of cake and more about the lacke of Paul touching his nipples. Still a fantastic video, though. I especially like the part where he uses the Xbone as a footstool. =P

EDIT: I'd be interested to know how many of these PS4s the crew also doesn't own and/or aren't real.
Thank you for calling tech support, how can I be the outlet of your misplaced frustrations today?
