Yay Andy, he always has the best facial expressions.
The most unique, nicest, and confusing individual you will get to know. Don't be stupid around me, that's my job.

I was hoping that the 'Brotherhood' would come after Andy, ending with him getting beaned in the eye with a lemon.

Kathleen makes an awesome saleswoman, and Andy makes the best angry customer (Mercenary Solutions and Toiler Humor come to mind)

The sun at the beginning credits was also a really cool touch.
There is sarcasm in my post. If you are smart, you should be able to find it.

Quite enjoyable. Though I feel that the conversation between Andy and Kathleen could have used a couple wider shots with both of them in it. All the close-ups made it feel a bit claustrophobic. Of course, it's quite possible that neither actor were available at the same time and you quickly filmed the opening shot later.

Count me as another one who really liked the title shot.

With Brad in that recent episode of cHUSTLE and now Andy, LRR needs to continue its trend of funny quest stars with excellent hats.

WOW Written by Kathleen and staring Andy with a nice lil paul snippit. very well done Kathleen. and of-course Andy's expressions and reactions translate great through film. AND i think i found my new quote. "traditional?! what about this is traditional? you're not a 8 year old girl trying to sell me a cup for a nickel, you're a mid twenties predatory sales fiend trying to accost me with second rate citrus beverage!"

also were the first few shots of andy done with no reflector or did it just get subsequently closer?

excellent job all around!!!

oh and are we going to see Andy in any cH coming up?

I got to yell my ending tirade several times! It was ridiculous. There may have been some cracking up. I actually think the funniest part is my flailing muppet arms. Also, thanks for the acting compliments, but acting with andy is basically like standing next to a bar of gold. You get a little golden reflection no matter what you're doing.

Third: Limeaid is the best aid ever.

I thought this was great. Andy was a nice surprise, and I thought he and Kathleen played well off of one another. In fact, dare I say it, Andy played this one so subdued that Kathleen was the actor that really shone in this one.

Great writing too; As soon as I heard "Limes? I LOVE limes!" I though 'hybrid car'. Also, as someone pointed out, this was very Calvin-and-Hobbes-ish.

ANDY! Always a pleasure to see him. :) The whole Lemon-AIDS thing was soooo grody! When Kathleen first mentions it, I did a double take. Had the same effect as Paul's "I was killing this hooker . . ." line from Crime and Punishment. Good laughs.

Also, "I LOVE limes!"

First, I'd have to agree with Kathleen and say that her flailing muppet arms are the best part of the end tirade.

Second, as basically everyone else has said, it was awesome to see Andy in a video again. And I, too, loved the delivery of "I love limes!"

Third, the entire lemon-AIDS joke. So horrible... horribly AWESOME!

Other than repeating all the praise that preceeded my post, Imust ask.

Is it in any way just too much of a coincidence that I was drinking some limeade as I watched this, and that this is because the lemonade I got wasn't quite to my taste? True story (though the majority of the limeade is now coating my monitor. I should probably clean that...).

And a big grin shone on my face when I saw Andy. I wonder if he's still the same character from Toilet Humour and Street Value. Poor guy and his terrible business dealings luck. At least we get chuckles out of it (Premium chuckles!) The writing for this video was also very well done, full of the twisted and random inserts along with unexpected punch lines. If my hat weren't keeping the sun out of my eyes, it would most certainly be tipped (and it doesn't help that it's covered in aluminum. Another true story, but don't ask about the background story for that one).

Haha, nice job there Andy. That's rich.

When I saw Paul in the credits while the video was loading I was wondering when he'd show in there. Of course he's in there in the end, he's so neutral- like Switzerland. :P

Goddamn, that was hilarious. I was hysterical for about a minute after the LemonAIDS joke. And the ending was perfect. Much congrats.
