For those playing along at home, Phailinite == Kryptonite. The rest you can probably figure out for yourselves.

I like the Elephant Matt shirt ad... Or is that "Elephant Man?"

Was that a Wii guitar in with the others? Maybe they should have been playing Wii Bowling instead.

Either there was some very clever editing in the beginning of this video or the entire first third was done in one take. Also, there was really nice editing on the climactic knee-groin.

You'll have to tell us about the monogrammed toilet paper prop. It looks authentic, shrink-wrapped even. Is it real?

Not only was Graham a douchebag, he was an amalgam of several kinds of douchebags... Or maybe just a little confused about douchebaggery, not being used to it.

Penrose Tiles! Awesome. I love the concept but can't imagine what this website would be like if they stuck with PT over LRR... Probably empty since they would've used a different URL

This was great. Graham how many popped collars did you have? I counted three but I was wondering if I was wrong.

Okay, so, that was actually pretty good. Didn't expect the knee, so kudos on that.

However... I realize now that Graham was portraying either the role of 'Conor' or 'Allen!', and either way, awesome. Well done, sirs.

I think Graham might have been playing too much "Bully" recently. That polo shirt really did a great job of adding to the douchbaggery. <-- Word stolen without consent from Evil Jim.

Best video in a long time. I don't think I've found a video so awesome since the Truce.

Ok. How long until we see an avatar of Graham getting kneed in the groin for infinity?

I see Paul has sole writing credit on this one. Could it be to fulfill a long-time fantasy?

Great video guys. The pacing worked really well. Just out of curiosity, is that a Pretty Pretty Princess ring? It kinda looks like one...

Agreed on this front.

That made me lol to say the least. Kuddos to all involved.

When they were talking about Graham being a giant douchebag I thought that maybe it would be like, the spirit of Bill had overtaken Graham or something. xD

Great video. Loved the sly self-references, specifically "Penrose Tiles", Graham's era-appropriate shirt (from A Brief History of Lame, IIRC), and the writing area from The Process. Speaking of The Process, this script feels downright Lunchboxy... maybe it's just the meta subject matter combined with Graham playing a douchebag, both of which are Johnny's calling cards.


My only complaint: horrendous noise reduction artifacts during the flashback scene. What the butt? Almost makes me wonder if it's time to try some ADR again. Personal philosophy: noise gate >> noise reduction.

It's still Monday somewhere!

In all seriousness, very nice. Where's Graham's soul patch in the flashback? Did he grow it in response to starting the site? Did they shoot that when they first started the site so Paul would remember to take Graham out in case he became a douche? Was that back before anyone else appeared in videos like at the very beginning?

I did like the plates background, which is so totally classic LRR. When they make LRR Begins, that's got to have to make an appearance.

The music with the ring being placed on the Paulster, open source or from somewhere in particular?

Graham getting balls'd never ceases to be comic gold. Just remember that if you guys are ever out of jokes!

Matt, don't make us get our phailinite rings out...

So anyway, it's a great video, but the best part was the groin kick, because some how you all figured out how to really make it look as tight an edit job while making it look like Graham has lost not only his ability to procreate, but I'm sure there is more damage further back.

It reminds me of the fact that my friend Meredith actually did make her ex-boyfriend (who cheated on her with her best friend) lose complete ability to have children in much the same fashion.
