Very nice. Excellent stinger as well.
Loved the greenscreen work on the phone.

That was actually hilarious. Very classic LRR!

Also, Graham, you once again managed to kick your "slightly creepy presenter" persona up a notch! Bravo.

"Mountain fortress" Beautiful touch.

May I ask how many attempts it took to get all three sets of headphones onto Alex's head?

So many great moments in this one: Graham's accent, Alex and James' performance, greenscreen phone and the annoying reflexion on the glasses (which I assume was fully intended, for that extra IMAX experience :D)

Looks great, I can't wait for IMAX experience to start rolling out outside of Canada. Or, you know, bootlegging. Also, will the finished Mobile Virtual edition come with some sort of neck brace attachment to induce the sore neck you tend to get at a real IMAX? Unless of course that just tends to happen during regular use. HYPE GET!

That stinger was amazing, you could sort of see it coming, but not enough to know exactly what was going to freak him out.

Are you guys aware that this technology sort of does actually exist and is a real thing? Is that what you were poking fun at, or just the idea that IMax getting on board with it is super ridiculous?

Either way, this was amazing and I loved it.

Dat stinger! :D


Also, I feel this is quite a sharply cutting satire of IMAX™'s general 'diversification' business plan (which they do note is out there, apart from the VR prototyping...poor Eric) into markets that are of dubious...connection to IMAX™.

It all comes down to that one telling line:

"And remember: big or small, any screen is an IMAX™ screen, as long as we say so."


I also liked the other digs at what is essentially a one-trick-pony, like "...you'll have access to tens of IMAX™ films..." :lol:


But the particular...inflection/accent/simulated speech impediment(?), as well as the blue-tinted glasses make me think you're parodying someone specific. Although a brief check tells me that Eileen Campbell is the Chief Marketing Officer for that company. Oh well, I feel Alan(Allan? Allen?) Appleby is distinctive enough to add to the entertainment value of this vid. :)

Thanks again, for another - OH GOD! A SHARK!

Oh man, ask me about IMAX. Did you know there actually *is* an IMAX "home" version? It's basically the same equipment you'd find in a full scale movie theatre, only with a $2m price tag.
