Seriously you guys. It's getting annoying that you think you are the first viewer. The counter doesn't update more than a few times per day.

I love miner Paul's shiny hard hat. Funny, absurd, and once again great.

Every freaking week.

The forum topic gets clogged with 'OMG I GOT FIRST VIEW' when week after week after week after week, we explain that the view counter isn't up to time.

Anyway, great video. The IT buzz words made me laugh. The ad also made me laugh.

I appear to be living in a quantum state here. I woke up about 40 minutes ago, found the main page hadn't updated, went to the forums, found more "still waiting" chatter, refreshed the main page a few times, and then found it HAD updated...about an hour before I woke up...

Ah, good to see the phail mines are back in business. That would explain the new phailhaus video this week.
Laura did very well in her premier sketch, playing the part of a sycophantic second marvelously. Bring her back for more, I say.

First post said it as well as I could I think.

I would like to say that, unless I'm imagining it, the social commentary is interesting and fun. Not theplayed out, juvenile anti-establishment stuff we see so much of on the internet, but a more intelligent and witty approach to the core idea.

Or maybe it's just a silly video.

As a further note, nice ad. Not as good as the previous one, but not everything can be naked Matt. I mean, seriously, it doesn't get better than naked Matt! When you've got naked Matt, you've got silly fun, and fun.

Lastly, T-shirt and a tie looks good on you Graham. =D

Sweetness. Paul's just so good at yelling into phones!

How much longer are you guys planning on running the commercials? They're funny, too.

Hi Lady! Froinlavin.

Interesting political commentary. Especially given how much juice gaming machines expend. What are you doing to reduce your consumption?

They're part of the video... so, until they re-edit the video to remove the ad, they're up there permanently.

AA+ for Laura be sure she is there for the LRRCast with week I would like to hear her story please!

And secondly, damn guys what crack where you on to come up with this video? Keep this up and drug enforce will be busting down your doors and searching every where :)

Still however, good video. I enjoyed it, not laugh out loud comedy but subtle undertones of humour and maybe some political commentary if you look for it.

Edit:

Does this mean Eustus Thrimble-Trimmer is moving up in the world as hes a CEO now?
It was really too big:

I give you this instead

One technical question: How the hell did you get the smoke from the cave in? And was that smoke floating around post or production made? 'cause if it was production...just where in the hell were you? :P

I must admit, excellent acting in this one. :) Your timing was superb, all though Morgan appeared to be looking too far right (From Morgans perspective) towards Laura, it didn't match up for the scenes where all three were in the shot. Another nitpick; I thought the noise of the phail being mined could have used some more echo to it, it sounded too much like it was a generator in the room. Unless that was the intention.

Also, I officially give Laura the pass - excellent acting on her behalf.

I liked it the ad at the start too, especially on how flat out ridiculous your tie looked around your neck. :P Any plans in the future for more shirt designs? :)

Also, for the starting intro...were those POWERPOINT images!? Lol, you just know that Yummies is made of phail 'cause of that.

Phail. Clearly you don't listen to the LRRcasts, otherwise you would have heard Pauls 5-10 minute rant on people who accuse writers on being on drugs for coming up with strange things. For health and safety reasons, I wouldn't recommend it otherwise you'll have angry Paul shouting at you through phones!

12 years. ;)

Additional edit:
One last critique; The phones needed sound effects.

And for this gigantic typo I humbly apologize. I ofcourse intended to type LRR.

On another note, Laura, you did a good job on the acting, but in my view you could loosen up just a little more. You appeared a little stiff (unless ofcourse it is part of your roll, but I thought it looked kinda just a little bit not 100% right, sorta, if you know what I mean)

Welcome to a black hole of doom, Laura. Once you're in, you're never out....until you come out on the other side a squished and contorted being converted from a three-dimensional plane into something existing on the time plane which is somehow parallel to all three dimensional planes.

Don't worry, I'm lost too. XD

About the video, could have used a few more sound effects in places such as the computer and the phone (which I believe was mentioned earlier). Also, certain...transitions were abrupt, leading to much head scratching and plenty of confusion...until I got the reference and was completely fine.

Fine video as always, though I do believe we are now seeing evidence of the demise of LRR's collective brain...or are we? *DUN DUN DUUUNN!!*
