The "utterly stupid" moment would have worked better if more of the fans were facing away from you and had to turn to look at you, all at the same time, but I suppose it is like herding cat-girls. I should be impressed you got as much co-operation as you did.

Wow, that was actually quite awesome

I sorta agree with Graham's character - while some anime I still do watch, but there's too much garbage out there, really (and streched soo long)

Awesome video, and great audience participation. There are some good lines in there too.

Great video.

I agree with the DBZ commentary, but I do like good anime.

Re: Pocky

I can't speak for the US, or even the bulk of Canada, but around here it's VERY easy to come by. They have it in every grocery store I've ever been in, even if it's usually only chocolate and strawberry. That said, I can think of 3 or 4 stores that specialize in Japanese snacks within a half hour by transit from where I'm sitting.

That has to be one of my favorite videos you guys have made. Have you guys noticed that some of your best writing is done when the video is just Graham and Kathleen?

TYLER!! :O Oh my gosh, congrats on being in the video! When I see your sister tomorrow, I'm totally mentioning this. (This is Emily Barner, by the way.)

Aaaand now onto the video. :) As a frequenter of Kei-Kon, I was both amused and entertained. >_< I can't believe I didn't go this year. I could have chased Graham down a staircase!

edited to add: that guy behind the vendor is wearing a LRLive shirt!

While entirely beyond anyone's control, it bugs me that the crowd was less, "Grab Your Torches And Pitchforks!" and more "OMG YEAH WHOO!" while chasing Graham. Yet another reason why I avoid Anime nerds: they are inept at all forms of communication, including acting.

awesome! I'm an anime fan, but I'm very picky about what I watch... I hate DBZ
My friends and I travel all over the states to different cons, next up is Anime Central in Chicago! horray.

I agree with Alja about the crowd being more happy about chasing after Graham and not angry at him. It looked like a bunch of fan girls chasing after Hanson in 1997.

Oh well, it must have been a fun shoot!

Well, if it's that easy to come by in Canada, i'm sure i'll be able to find some nearby. Thanks for the help though, that's one less thing I have to drag back from here.

As for pocky it is harder to come buy the farther east you go in the US, and as for in BC Vancouver has a pocky store.(my friend had his last b-day there)

The people in the last scene was really excited to be in it, but aside from one or two people mugging for the camera, I think everyone was awesome in it!

Also, a very funny exchange:
During shooting, Graham frequently repeated, "guys I'm playing an asshole, I'm not actually an asshole", and upon watching this, my roommate was like "why is Graham acting like me?".
So much secret ROFLing on my part. SO MUCH.

Also I am back, I guess. Hi everyone!

Great video! The best Japanese candy I've had is Hi-Chew. Meiji Fruit Drops are pretty good as well but Pocky is for the win!

Great job on the video and the use of audience participation. I love the Pocky-mon scene.

While I enjoy anime, I haven't enjoyed an anime-based convention in a few good years. Every year that I attend one (though consider that I have not been to Kei-con) the majority of the crowds seem to degrade more and more into the obsessive yaoi fangirls. The only convention that I have really found myself to be enjoying is Comic Con International, which is fantastic in every way.

That was pretty brilliant, guys. I'm glad you could make use of my cosplayers - they look forward to LLR every year and they make an *excellent* mob. Thank god you stressed the character concept involved or it would a real sling.

Anyway, your videos help memorialize the con each year so thank you for bringing wonderful LLR humor to our annual experiment-in-volunteering-tormet, Kei-kon.

Oh wow, I should totally be sleeping right now but I couldn't help but log in for a minute to say that was awesome. As someone who's been roped into going to con's before but isn't really that huge into the scene that video played out just like I figured my first con would go in my head.

Big props for getting that group together and I'm jealous over your lack of snow...

Q. How many Dragon Ball Z characters does it take to change a lightbulb?
A. Just one, but it takes 3 episodes.

I'm waiting for the new t-shirts at the store.
Those photos gave me a good impression.

Also, on the topic of merch, I've told you before, when you get that Season 4 DVD out I'll buy the box set.
