Put the ads at the end

Postby elansey » 14 Apr 2008, 13:32

I like the ads, but put 'em at the end. I think people will still watch them, and it intrudes less on the overall video.
And yes - this was a good one.

I have loved many of the LRR videos in the past, liked many more, and recommended to many.

Taking cheap shots at Catholicism, especially the Virgin Mary, is disappointing.

I look forward to your video that does the same for Islam. Or are you too scared to do that?


Krymzn


LRR took "a cheap shot" at one of the most recognizable religions in the world. Sure, to some it was in bad taste, but it's for the sake of comedy, they weren't knocking the religion, and no harm was really done.

In my interpretation, they were talking about Mary Magdalene. The one that was more likely to be nude. <_<;

Also, parodying Islam probably wouldn't be a great idea with the current state of the world. Catholicism doesn't go around suicide bombing and killing people to get into heaven.

Normally I enjoy LRR videos quite a bit (Wouldn't be here if I didn't). I'm not sure about this one though...I wouldn't go so far as to call it a cheap shot, but it's certainly not new material (Yes, this video depicts it as being this way all along whereas most of the skits along this vein are more 'let's reinvent the church' but it's the same path really).

Not offended or anything, but I didn't find it to be your best work. Still, I seem to be in the minority, so it's probably more me then the jokes themselves =P.

And, on the plus side, Ash at the end does make up for a lot.

What, the idea of Benny taking The Mope's head isn't offensive enough to Islam for you?

We're about poking fun, not purposely setting out to offend.
You want to know a funny story?
We were originally going to shoot this a couple week's ago, but then we realized it would go live on Easter Monday.
We decided not to do that because, while the video is clearly making fun of the church, we didn't want to look like we were intentionally being assholes about it.

In summation, sorry you were offended, but you're being silly about it so I don't really care.

When I first saw Graham's wig I thought it was going to be a Bob the Angry Flower sketch.

Well... I really didn't like the "first view" interruption at the beginning. I understand it's a poke at those forum posters who actually do that but it completely ruined the continuity for me. Throughout the majority of the sketch I kept expecting further interruptions as the general running gag. However, this is one of those sketches that improves with multiple viewings so no real harm done.

Speaking of harm, for those who are actually offended by this skit I'd like to point out Mr. Jones/Barnes reaction, which is most likely to represent the common reaction of someone in his position. You are not alone.
Graham wrote:In summation, sorry you were offended, but you're being silly about it so I don't really care.

And what Graham said.

I still don't mind the new ads as long as they don't put a strain on LRR who are now basically filming TWO sketches a week.

Oh, and is Paul actually eating in the ad or just mechanically moving hand to mouth?

Obligatory Ash comment: I saw her name in the credits but completely forgot about her by the time her part came in at the end of the video. So... double surprise!

</obligatory>

In all honesty, that was great. And as much as it's eerie to be 'this guy over the internet,' I may as well say it so nobody else has to: I appreciate the diminishing returns on the amount of clothing Ash wears. At this rate, for the season 6 finale, she'll be naked! Or she'll just outsource it to Morgan. That's fine, too.


Yay. Naked Ash. I mean, holy christ on a crap she's pretty. So's Morgan. Seeing either of them naked would be nice, come to think of it.

And Scared Paul is better than Pissed-Off Paul.

I'm a Catholic, and I'm not even offended. I mean, the sign on the Church was for the "St. Ignatius Francopalian Church of the Holy Rhetoric." How can you even think Graham is a serious priest after that bit?

But I was hoping this would be a Church of the Beatles, what with the first sign. XD

Ash looked lovely as a naughty nun, of course, and I found the enormous, elaborate silver decanter that Graham tips forward to be rather humorous as well.

Also, the Mope: worst nickname EVER.

I hypothesize that the bag cost seven dollars because it was filled with semi-precious metals. BECAUSE PAUL IS ACTUALLY A ROBOT. No human can be that cool.

Another great video. Loved the "0 Counter" gag, and also the church signs, because they weren't just stills – the trees were still moving a little.

Funniest comment I've read so far! Also, probably true.

Also, also, excellent choice of set for this video. I've missed seeing the inside of the Stark's homestead.

Mmmmm... sacrilege, tasty!

Why are some people being offended? The whole thing about offensive jokes is that its ok if you are a minority or if you are making fun of white people, and lets face it: Christianity= Whitest religion evar.

Is Diet Cherry Christ soon going to be available in the lrr store? If not is there any way I can get some, because I do love my cherry sirup flavored diet blood beverage.

There are THREE things in which I have to say.

1. Graham will be the first to be conspicously killed by god.

2. The Pope will never again visit Canada.

3. Being a protastant I found this quite funny.

In fairness, it's questionable whether Canada's thought police would permit a video making fun of Islam to remain up.

Great video, everyone! Kudos, Kathleen!

Next time, I hope for a video making fun of the most popular religion in Quebec: Secession!

Really? I though that recently they had been going somewhat downhill with Unnatural Resources and the like but this was their epic return to greatness! (Customer Servicing was good to, just not as good).

That would have been pretty epic. I mean the PR you would have gotten would have been pretty negative, but still people would have been coming to the site.
