That video was sexy and that was easily the best cardboard man costume I've ever seen constructed.

He is Cardboard Man, doing everything some cardboard can!

I love how the split second where the bag is on Graham's head is the exact middle point of the video and so it is the cover picture. Did you guys plan it that way or is it a "happy accident"?

LRR has some pretty big boxes.

You're really writing a Story Guy script? And it is affected by this video? When will you be sharing it with the world, pray tell?

Quite good this week!

Overall, the original videos a good deal better but variety is part of what makes LRR sketches so great!
I about fell out of my chair laughing over the Hum-V scene. "What I'm a vampire now?" "Crips are life dog!"

I just saw the movie and I came home to see this. It was cool how it worked out about the last names.
Is it safe?

Even though it's now at 11 views. Anyways, good job. I liked the Facebook joke.


That just means your first twice!

Unless I am much mistaken, I believe that is Bill in the suit he looks tall enough!


Don't forget that cardboard adds an extra twenty pounds, of height.

This video... AHHH!!!

Thats how cool it is. Not to mention you kept the whole fast paced thing appropriately.
My train of thought is more like a roller coaster that has loop de loops and no safety bars.
I don't know if I'm tall enough to ride.

Yes. Yes, they shared a few themes. And when it's finished and made into a video.

It is nice to know that they have access to the kind of setting I had in mind...

Hahah, oh wow. That suit brought back memories of when I was 11~12ish. My friends dad had a supplier business of some sort and his garage was filled with cardboard boxes, so my friend up with the idea of making "fighting suits".

Basically we would wail away at eachother with either long sticks of doweling (some with a bit at the end like a flail) or a stick with a rope attached with a bag of rocks stuck on the end, insulated with duct tape to make a club-thing of some sort.

This is what mine and my friends suit looked like. The joints used various types of old dryer ducting:

We basically fought eachother untill we put big holes in or suits; which we pached up with duct tape. Unfortunately one of our suits was completely destroyed when his older brother decided to take us on with no suit or weapons, and basically tackled us.

I think we made 3 or 4 suits in all. Fun times.

P.S: I recognized all of those Half-life sounds.

I always thought the voice that say "I am iron man" sounded like the Daleks from Dr. Who, and if I remember correctly you guys are fans of that show so I thought you might make it sound more like that, not so deep like you did make it

Not to nitpick TOO much, but X-Acto knives have fixed-length, replaceable blades and lightweight, narrow handles. The retractable instruments in the video are box cutters.

Awesome sauce!!!!!!

Funny and current, glad you never tried to parody that Sara Silverman song with Alflic. Anyway... loved it.

Was hoping for Graham to do the "Oh yeah, I can fly." line :D

I scarce need repeat all the praise for this video, so I'll just add that Matt was totally awesome. Give him more dramatic head turns, the man's got it down to a science.

Well...

The costume was awesome.

I just didn't particularly like the video. It was nothing specific, I just didn't find it very funny or gripping in any way. Forgettable.

A couple of good lines here and there, but it wasn't the best of work I've seen from you guys.

I'm pretty sure that I missed the podcast recording for this question, but does this video have anything to do with a script that you had written for years and were collecting cardboard boxes for? In one of the podcasts (pre-Matt and Graham moving in), Graham mentioned something about collecting a ton of cardboard and having it behind his bed, and Graham and Paul writting a script in the EEEEEEEarly years of LRR.

Also, I didn't recognize Kate in the video, but shee looks like she's all grown up. (Seriously, I'm not being a creeper, but is Kate 18 yet? It's like she's been 16 for like 4 years now.)

All I have to say is that the last name coincidence is anything but. Graham made an excellent Tony 8)

So hang on... If it's Mr Stark in the video, does that make this a cast video? After all, they never actually called him 'Tony'. Is there something you haven't been telling us, Graham?
We all know Paul is an evil genius, and Kathleen is/has? worked in the media. Seems pretty canonical so far...

Mr. Stark (and Mr. Saunders and all nonwriting people) I call you the the Monty Pythons of our time. What do you say to that?
