Sorry for the late update, I guess Revver couldn't handle the awesomeness of this video.

Great vid, although I think only Graham really has the right voice for the "ye olde movie" feel.

Also, Paul is awesomely excited about ice cream mining.

LRR: spreading disinformation since 1956. I loved it, especially all that old stock footage.

It reminded me of that commercial about house hippos. If anyone's seen it you know what I'm talking about.

Was it just me or did some bits of the video jump around a bit, and near the end of the video it seemed to flash green every now and again

Weird encoding bugs with the MPEG 2 source footage. I'll try and fix it up.

Personally I'm not a fan of anything "natural", because Mother Nature has really lousy aim...

Very funny though, I laughed and the nutfudge clusters :lol:

The green screening looked better this time around. I think a lot of the stock footage is of salt mining.

It reminded me of this Questionable Content comic that mentioned bread mining.

Exactly what I was thinking, on both accounts.
Nice editing!

Good, but I felt it was missing something, maybe MORE absurdity. I like the "instructional video" format for this intrusion, but maybe a little more would have been nice. For example, the thing that really pulls the "How To Talk Like A Pirate" video together is the before and after shots of Jer, Morgan, and Matt. Maybe it would have been nice to see the people watching this commercial, maybe on some factory tour, at the end.

I think the funniest part for me was Matt finding a rock in his ice cream. It took me a second to realize what happened but I lol'd. There were a lot of other funny little lines and details I noticed, too.

I also especially liked the ad. Paul is very persuasive.

I noticed during the neapolitan part the overlay hangs a little when the background switches to a few frames of trucks driving by. Just thought I'd point that out...

But good video, creative. You get three thumbs up from me.

Funny, but along with the other glitches, the black and pink stripes on the Neapolitan pile are there for just a fraction of a second longer than the shot is.

Anyway entertaining video, but I agree it was kinda boring, almost like watching a MST3K episode without the guys talking through it. I know that the jokes were supposed to be in the absurdness of what you guys were saying but it seemed like you almost played the characters too serious, I really believed that Paul was that excited. Maybe it's just me.

Playing comedy seriously is what we do.

Besides, it wouldn't have worked otherwise, it would have look amateurish.

Still, I respect that opinion.
It was a concept video, not a LOL-fest.
