Damn.

You're right.

That's going to bother me all day now.

Oh NO! I just watched it again. Did LRR just divide by zero?!?!

Think about it. Bill is now the "sworn enemy" of Ninjas. Thus, Bill is a pirate. But in the LRRiverse, looking back at "The Secret Life of Toast", Bill is working for a record company executive (since the business man seems shady and does say "we don't have the highest standards". But record companies are the sworn enemies of pirates. It just doesn't make sense!!!!! :shock:

2 things I considered.

1. When Bill has his sword against Jer's neck the second time, why does Jer give him suggestions in favour of his demise? (Namely, by naming people he could play Street Fighter with instead of himself)

2. When the ninjas get their throwing daggers out, is that sound the weapon switch soundbite from Team Fortress 2? We already know Alex plays and he apparently provided the sound effects...

Also, just a nitpick back: Tsunade is the Fifth Hokage, I'd be somewhat surprised if he doesn't end up being responsible for her demise.

Was the ninjas working for corporations part any way influenced by the current Sam and Fuzzy story arc?

Oddly enough I chose to wear my Talk Like a Pirate shirt today having no idea that it was going to be featured in the ad.

Also Bill makes Nathan look a lot shorter than he is.

It's funny how Paul can post earlier than the topic creator so it looks like it's his topic. He should've made the date on the post way back in time, like 1837 or something. "This video's existed since before they even had cameras!"

I wanted to merge the pre-update video thread with the standard discussion thread, but phpBB only allows splitting topics not merging.

My favourite LRR video ever.

Ever.

And I was going to point out the Third Hokage thing, but someone else got to it first.

The whole Naruto thing had me literally laughing out loud, though.

OK, I might have been a bit harsh. It's true that I didn't laugh throughout the whole video, but it was still good. I liked the ad and the fight scene, and Nate played an... interesting character.

ROFLMAO!!!
I have too many things to say, have a list:

- Nathan makes a cool, and very charismatic, CEO/Businessman
- When Nathan pointed out to release the ninja horde, I instinctively shouted "OBJECTION!" without thinking about it x3
- Stopping the hand signs in mid-go is something I always expected to happen in the series, but apparently Naruto villains are just that retarded. Kudos to Bill for seeing past their stupidity.
- I lol'd hard at Jer being saved only because he's good at Street Fighter and D&D (both worthy reasons, yes, but I still lol'd)

Oh, and YAY BILL!

I noticed that according to the list; there's 300% more Paul in this vid then others.

Also, the fact that Jer is actually almost killing himself by not agreeing with bill on teh Streetfighter bit, instead he kept suggesting other people he could play with :P Fun times

Mad props to Alex for doing the sound effects for the ninja fight.
I thought ninjas, and I thought sounds, and I though "Who better?"

Also, I was up to my balls in green screen effects shots.

Maybe in future vids, there could be bits where Bill or Jer try to kill off the other and just fail or miss and kill someone else, and the rest of the group would just continue on like nothing happened.

So does this make Bill a Pirate?

Wouldn't it make him a samurai? I believe samurai were the enemy of the ninjas. Thats why he has the samurai sword.

But Bill is a Pirate armed with samurai sword...

No wonder he was so effective.

Also, really hoping James got some photos of shooting. This and a podcast are the only things that could noticeably make this more awesomephail.

As others have said, this is some damn fine green screen work. I lolled pretty hard at the Sudden Ninja Influx, which is the new name of my band.
