Oh my god, the stinger! That was the best part, but the video was also nonstop lols. Good work, and Maple Sugar Pie FTW!

The dialog was snappy, but it was Kathleen's facial expressions when she wasn't talking that really made the video for me (and scared me just a little bit).

I was initially dubious as it felt like a concept that had already been used (nice nod with the stinger) but v. good. As many cats say frrrroouuu.

Ditto though I have always seen Kathleen as the type to enjoy the lamentations of their women

Yep.

Kathleen's face is hilarious, and Jeremy once again plays the straight man really well. Also, Matt with a sword brought on flashbacks to the LoadingReadyRumble.

Jer made a very good straight man, some brilliant acting.

I loved the casual polishing of the no soliciting sign.

Stinger was brilliant, I sat through the credits thinking it would be great if the Satanists turned up, and lo and behold they did.

Everything about this video was perfect, even by the already high LRR standards. But by far the high point for me was the way Jer answered "maple sugar pie" and Matt and Kathleen's reactions to it.

So did that stinger set a new record for longest callback?

I think every single thing about this one was spot on. It's been mentioned already, but Kathleen's facial expresions were just amazing and slightly creepy.

Stinger was great. I was sort of expecting something like that, but even still, it was very well executed.

*thinks about it for a sec*

Yes, yes it did.

EDIT: Basicly, mid season 7 (or, going by the old calender, 3/4s into season 7) calling back to late season 1. Theres nothing so far that can beat that, IIRC.

I knew the video would be good the instant I saw the title, and it did not disappoint. I was also hoping you'd reference Door to Door, and again, the stinger nailed it. Well done.

After a second watching, I'd just like to add that Kathleen's crazy eye acting was even more awesome than I originally thought, and Matt's barely visible stubble really sells the weekday-businessman/weekend-barbarian character.

And what exactly was Jer doing in the opening scene?

When I saw this video I originally thought aw muffin what about the Satan worshipers. I love you guys for including them in the stinger. You made my day. :D

I think he's holding an iPad, but why would you need the goggles?

To protect his eyes?

Anyhoo: great vid, as most people are saying, Kathleen was pure gold in this one. Greatgreatgreat crazy eyes. Loved the maple sirup pie part! And the swords! O, and the little handgesture at 'well he is the kind of guy that would deserve some trampling', that killed me!

I liked this because I don't think Jer was really doing a Straight Man. Both parties were really confusing each other with their responses in equal measure.

Maple sugar + pie crust = Best In Life. Also, the vid was good. Jer should play the prick guy in more vids, he was doing a good job of it. BTW, what could you reading that would require goggles?

Edit: History 10 has failed me also.

Cromists (???) vs Satanists.

There can only be one!(Two... I guess in this case...)
