Loved the video, guys. And I look forward to the LRR writer's team taking over writing duties on all upcoming television shows (except for Paul, the vagabond...). Looking forward to the upcoming Battlestar Galactica episode "X ways to detect a Cylon."

I was kind of expecting it to end with, "In other news, medical science made a leap forward today as the first man-baby was born."

If you were going for the "he really did have a baby" joke, I think he needed to be more precise in his denial. "Of course he didn't have a baby, he's a man, not a woman in drag, perpetuating some kind of fraud on the general public which the entire news team has been complicit in." Or "he would have needed to undergo surgery by a secret cabal of Nazi scientists."

Except Flea failed to note that the phrase was "sexual pleasure" not "female pleasure". Unless you think women, or in this case transgender men, regularly derive sexual pleasure from vacuuming, the joke fails before it even begins.

But it was the sexual pleasure of women that was being discussed as duplication went.

And obviously they derive sexual pleasure from using household appliances.

Good video, the graphics really do make it feel like a news program, could have done with a fake news ticker though.

I'm curious to know why Graham didn't have a greenscreen aura if you can explain what's going on. i thought only colors close to or matching the backdrop caused problems.

BSG isn't going to be affected as they have had a huge pre-production region.

Matt does a good job as a news anchor. Is Paul dead? Graham seemed pretty pissed.

And here I was, just moments before starting up the computer how many ways LRR would poke at the WGA strike. Well done.
