Kept trying to figure out who had illustrated it and then saw Maki in the credits, Just awesome:) (although kind of sad because he doesn't get boxing day)

In Britain Boxing Day is a bank holiday so all the shops are closed, and even if they weren't it's the day my extended family gathers for Christmas celebrations, so some of the context was rather lost on me.

I was also thinking throughout 'you know how this could have been even more awesomer? Make it a Whole Story'. I do love The Whole Story

Still good though :)

Magicland... Paul's Beard... Gibb... did I step into a time portal and get transported back to 2007 expect everything is in HD and sounds better? That's what it feels like!

GOOD GOD, we are being fanserviced REALLY HARD here. :D
I can feel it, like
I was TEN YEARS OLD when you first had Gibb in your videos. I know I wasn't even close to discovering LRR at the time, but still, I can imagine it.

Question: Is Gibb meant to have his own voice? Cause he sounds quite different from, say, Gibbstation 3, which could be due to Graham's voice changing a bit in that time, but then again he never quite sounds like "just Graham", if that makes sense.

Weird, I was recently wondering when we would see Gibb again.

Now knowing a bunch of awesome artists who can help with art for videos is an wonderful side effect of Strip Search.

WAYF: I think Gibb plays different characters (usually named Gibb) in different videos.

Apparently this joke won't even make sense in all of Canada. Once again, your silly little skit made me actually have to go learn something.

I suppose that learning something because something is funny is the best reason to learn something. Can you do a sketch on Pirate Foxes and their role in Pierson v. Post? I've always thought the Court's dissent in that case was not well enough understood. Thanks!

Wait... boxing day isn't about boxing, nor does it involve world famous pugilist Tommy Ray Handley? I'm disappointed.

I was EIGHT :shock:
I'm kinda disappointed that Gibb wasn't credited as Gibb, but other than that, I loved it.

With the arrival of Capitalism, the Cult of Boxidus was subsumed by celebrations of the Order of Brothers of the Saint Nicholas' House of Deal. Also known as the Black Fridaeans, the order is famous for their strict vow of bargaining and have combined their annual festival with the Distributed Order of Saint Cyberius, creating a fortnight long bacchanalia of savings. The global reach of the Distributed Brothers, alongside affiliates such as the Walmartians and Amazonites, have boosted the popularity of the Black Fridaean rite so much that the Day of Boxidus is only observed in the dark, distant corners of the world. Every year, more people around the world join the Fridaeans in enjoying amazing deals and savings while saying, "Glory to the economy."

Gibb's voice is different from Gibbstation 3 for sure, but it's pretty close to Magicland which I think is when he last appeared.
