THIS! This needs to be spread around the internet as fast and as far as humanly possible. The fact that it is hilarious only helps.

This may be the most important piece of social satire LoadingReadyRun have ever done.

Unfortunately the idea of a “Sane” Internet seems infeasible.

That was awesome! I am showing this video to my entire staff, hopefully it will get them to stop arguing about Facebook. At least get them to stop within earshot of me.

And man, is it just me or does Paul do an amazing "responsible person with a suit" persona?

The video was great - clever and fun.

However - slight technical issue: lots of black screen before the video starts, and no sound over the logo.

(Also - lots of black at the end of your Checkpoint video)

I mean, it's not like it affects the enjoyment of the product or anything, but I guess you guys probably want to know about those.

Great commentary on the internet, probably best I have seen. We need to make this video go viral.

HA! Love it! Paul's delivery is perfect!
The setup with the opposing opinions on selfies was great. I think I;m against selfies but the pro selfie side has a good point... o_O

Also Graham, that hat looks sweet.

The water for my coffee boiled, so I paused the video just after Paul said, "even stupider arguments with even less at stake," and while making my coffee I thought, "he's got to mention the pronunciation of 'gif' that would be the perfect example."


Incidentally, I make the coffee with a french press, and anyone who makes coffee by a different method is wrong, wrong, wrong, and should feel bad for how wrong they are.

It would've made my friggen day if Alex had been wearing a shirt that said 'Insanity on the internet' or something like that, because he would vouch for that. He would vouch for the entire internet to become 4Chan.

This video was awesome. I think once you buy a new computer at the end of the install process this video should play so that everyone has a fair warning that opinions are opinions, and nothing matters.

I feel the two opposing sides of selfies could have been presented a little more evenly, but I don't know if that would have helped or hurt the sketch honestly. On the one hand, I identified with Graham more (mostly because Kathleen's character was almost too spot on and annoying) and so thought that that the sketch was going to just have him play the 'straight man', albeit a little off of the norm. This resulted in me being taken aback (in a good way) when Paul came up and told me to drink a cup of who gives a shit. On the other hand, if both sides were equal, than it cements the fact that both sides are valid/not valid and thus nobody should care. Either way, really enjoyed the video and will keep it bookmarked to link to trolling threads.

This is an interesting point. I found Graham's character as irritating as Kathleen's, honestly, but I'm a woman in her early twenties and spend a lot of time w/ people who talk like Kathleen's character does. It doesn't faze me, though I know that inflection drives some people nuts.

Graham's character, I took to be one of those jerks who needs to police everyone else's actions—so I was also quite thrilled when the video didn't take his side.

I guess I should have been more irritating :)
We were trying to present both sides equally. Which was tricky!

Great video, but anyone who seriously thinks it'll make a difference should probably study a bit of history. Actually, it would really help if everyone understood a bit more about human history.
