Matt looks adorable in the Snuggie on the couch in the stinger. That certainly won't help the Matt / James fanfics out there. LOL

I like how you finally get the lost crew members back and have one of them die after the first line, and make the other hold the mic. :wink:
You forgot to have a kidnapped (if necessary) Tim on camera duty though.

Wow, that was genius. Really diggin' the snuggies, very cult-y.

Also, I laughed so much at Morgan's re-appearance, possibly because I didn't expect him to be there but really? The drinks are all poison?

All drinks in plastic cups served by cults are poisoned.

...There's a lewd joke waiting to be made there, but I'm not sure I want to be the one to make it. :P

Considering the quality of the videos you guys have done in the past few weeks, and they've all be great, this is the best of the best. I don't think I've laughed at a LRR video this much since Bed Buggery.

I'm wondering if there are a lot of jokes in here that I just don't get. It still seems funny but I'm sure there is a lot more in there that I've not been able to pick out so far.

About halfway through watching this video I thought to myself "Kathleen wrote this".

I was half right, but it's still enough to feel vindicated ^^

I enjoyed how Graham mentioned arMEGAddon in his sale pitch.

I really, really liked this episode.

I loved the random appearance of Morgan ten seconds before he was killed off, reminded me of the opening of Police Squad episodes.

Should've seen the ending coming, but it was still hilarious.

Also, it's nice to see the Matt/James pairing continue from CHustle.

I swore it was Jer until the credits came up, because he seems to be the foremost authority on HPL in the crew. Who knew!

As a big fan of Lovecraft, I loved this video. I go big or go home, so I don't currently have an eldrich deity at the moment. I'm sorry to have to correct you, but the state mythological creature of Wisconsin is actually the Hodag, which is more of a woodland terror than an Elder God.

This is me while watching this video:
"Holy crap, it's Morgan! He's back from the dead! Oh, and now he's dead again. Bogus."

Anyway, great video, guys. You've been on fire for the past 5 weeks. Also it seems like Matt's acting has really improved in this video.

Feel free to correct me if I'm spelling this wrong, but is the cult's Dark God called Yagthwepe?

I actually couldn't decide between Graham and Kathleen as having wrote this. Then when I found out it was both, there was a minor celebration. It was actually really entertaining.

[Squee Morgan is back!]

I loved this one! [as usual] but even more so. :D At first it seemed like it was just going to be another parody of those commercials, but then it turned into something completely original! I was really impressed by that twist. Keep up the good work! :D Also hahaha Snuggies.

I despised Snuggies until I saw this video. Now I'm all conflicted inside.

Amusingly, I was betting on Graham. It seemed his brand of weirdness. So, y'know, half points either way.

I assure you that while we were writing this, the Wikipedia entry for Wendigo stated such, quite clearly.

It's gone now, but it you google "mythological creature wisconsin wendigo" you'll see a bunch of procedurally generated articles that are just built from the Wiki entry, and while the pages themselves reflect the change, the short results on the Google page still contain that phrase.

Only on the internet, and perhaps only on the LRR forums, would the state mythological creature of Wisconsin be a subject for debate ;). I wasn't even aware there was a state mythological creature. I mean really, why even bother to establish that?

Awesome video as usual, though. Had me in stitches the whole way through.

Graham's Texan seemed to falter occasionally, but it gave the right impression at least.


Matt was an excellent financially responsible cultist. That alone would make me feel more comfortable joining that cult, knowing that we won't be on the verge of going bankrupt every lunar cycle.

I could watch Matt say "mystique" like that all day.
