Crap. I want candy now, too.

Good thing I'm about to head to the grocery store, where simple sugars and high fructose corn syrup are available in great supply!

Evil, Inc., is trying to make me diabetic.

PRODUCT PLACEMENT WOOOO

I wasn't horribly impressed with this video, it was sorta bleh to me. Very predictable. Personally I think Evil Inc. is a little old because it is generally the same joke, but maybe that's just me.

It did seem to more like an earlier video than the sort we have had for the last while.

I really don't get it either. Snickers is so much better, and the new Snickers with Almonds? Best. Ever.

Snickers with Cashews would be the ultimate but I'm not holding my breathe on that one.

Enjoyed the video, a big round of applause for the supporting Mars bar.
Paul's facial expressions are comedy gold, subtle but they make the sketch along with the timing.

Evil inc must be getting frustrated through thwarted plans though, twitchy finger syndrome...

it's all over in a flash (3:36), but still very telling. Time to adopt a career of lesser evil.

noticed that too. Perhaps an Evil Inc. where there's an argument about clothes & Jaques Francois is messing with them. IE the badder or two sets of bad guys. :)

While we're discussing the costuming, what happened to Canadaman's cape at the end there? He seemed very casually dressed for the task of foiling such a diabolical scheme.

No, I really really like to, but it's not rofl-worthy. And this is me saying that.
I mean, it's very funny (imho) but it's a different kind of funny. Evil Inc always has been.

I LOVE that comic, Brown!

Costuming:
Evil Inc's CEO and his assistant have always (since Season 1) dressed like that. He's one of those villains who's more casual that his underlings.

...we forgot the cape at the end.

Thanks G. Now I don't feel so bad. It is really good either way.

now i've got to put the old seasons back in the DVD player... again... to see this. :)

Matt could always be a "temp boss" because paul's boss character is on "vacation". Matt's one dresses all napoleon-like. :)

What I think is the funniest part is that Canadaman's "foiling" of the evil plot could easily be considered an evil plot in itself. Replacing all the Mars bars with Three Musketeers? The children will be so disappointed!

On the pumpkins riping early, we've had the opposite problem here In England. A lot of our pumpkins have been not been riping fast enough and have had to put sat in big rooms with fans blowing warm air to convince the pumpkins to turn orange. Damnable lack of summer that we've had.

I was also surprised by the mention of fireworks, not something I associate with Halloween. But then we do have November 5th as our big firework day.

I enjoyed the video, kept me smiling throughout. It was very nice to see the return of Canadaman, the worlds most patriotic superhero.

Being a french canadian, the solid snake joke made me rofl quite thoroughly. Graham's delivery of Serpent was awesome, cept the t is supposed to be silent at the the end. Still, awesome vid guys!

As for forgetting the cape, I have a theory.

Canadaman's Flag cape is his most recognizable costume feature, so he had to remove it so he could inconspicuously sneak into Evil Inc. HQ, switch the Mars for the 3M, and stay hidden until the plot was foiled.

Fixed it for you.

Admit it: it does kind of draw the eye.
