Brad: "...a plus two to sexy..."
I'm so using that now. So if I have all four t shirts, would I have a plus-eight to sexy, or would I have to wear them all at once for that?

I really liked the video a lot. I thought at some point you would go back to like a Max Payne-hitman firm or something.


Nah, you can only wear one at a time to get the effect. The only exception is if there were LRR golf shirts, then you could get the +2 to skeezy for multiple popped collars. Besides, that was the rejected wiiplay games shirt that gives the +2. The LRR dots gives a +2 save vs. pwnage, the talk like a pirate a +2 attack bonus vs. ninjas and the Desert bus tee a +2 attack bonus vs. Deserts.

I expected Desert Bus itself to have its own save...

Much the same.

hmmmm everyone seems to love this one but imo it wasn't that great. I applaude the idea, I just didn't find it particularly funny.

hooray, watched this twice just as funny the second time round!

What is Graham's accent? It sounds hilarious but in terms of prestige/mockery i'm not sure whether I'm hearing the Canadian equivalent of toffery or Scouse.

Favourite bit has to be Kathleen's emphatic 'Nooo!' or Alex's japanese finger-V whilst miming being a severed head. That or 'no crippled nuns (otehr cripples ok)'

The accent seems to be a kind of British/Australian hybrid.

The shirt bonuses would stack with other types of bonus, or the same from another slot, but wouldn't stack with eachother. For instance, a huge pair of shades, which also provide a bonus to sexy, would stack with the Wii play shirt to give a total of +4. Weilding a long cardboard tube whilst wearing the Talk like a Pirate shirt would actually confer two parts of the set bonus 'Ninja Bane' - in fact, if you also wore the LRR logo shirt as a bandana with that you would become neigh unstoppable...

Well, if Hitler and I were buddies, whenever I saw him, I'd say "hi Hitler!" becaue I like to address my axis friends by their last name.

I really liked this. It felt almost Edgar Wright-esque with the cuts and angles, with a positively Pythonesque script. Great job!

I lose internet access for a couple months and all these new videos show up. WTF, guys?

You know, if this guy can't find a proper hitman to get the job done, he can always turn to his brother, Story Guy. He's been out of work for a while now and would probably welcome a chance to perform a surgical strike while recounting his experiences on the plains of the Serengeti--*snore*

He uses the lighter to ignite the blowtorch to light his cigar. You couldn't get more badass than that unless you used a magnifying glass on a sunny day.

Hocrap that had me laughing so hard during the exchange between Kathleen and Alex, and Graham. Slick editing in there.

Also no crippled nuns (other cripples OK).

Is it just me, or are Alex and Kathleen both strangely exceptionally attractive as rugged mercenaries? :shock: Maybe it's Alex's facial hair and the fact that I've never seen him without a hat, coupled with Kathleen's arm bandanna and ferocity.

Still though, Decoupage?



Decoupage - just makes me think of this clip (from about 1:19) Although of course the trampoline section was better.

I just noticed, Alex's gun looks quite real.
I took it for granted the other times I watched (mostly due to my father having I think the same model), but it really looks real.

I think it appeared in a recent Ask an Alex Live installment, Graham held it to his head and Alex nervously noted it wasn't loaded.

Very well done, as always guys!! Liked the pacing and Alex's voice was superb.

I am probably the only one, judging from the other comments here, but I thought the ad at the beginning, at 45 seconds, was too long.

This might be the last video I can watch for a while. *cries* So if I disappear (I know, no great loss...) you are not forgotten!

My first thoughts when I saw the video and Graham appearing I was like...

"Wait story guy?!"

Then it acclerated faster into brilliantness than I could have possibly imaganed. But yeah.
It was really too big:

I give you this instead
