Oh wow, that stinger just killed me XD

When I first learned about Sealand, I entered a 6 hours wikipedia loop... so yeah, don't make me go back!

Great video guys!

Great writing, good acting, brilliant comic timing.

LRR truly is the apex predator of the sketch comedy world.

Wow. I honestly did not see the twist coming. At first I was a little shocked, but you guys handled it so well. Great satire. A+++++, would watch again.

Based on the literal interpretation of green in the other video, I was expecting a joke about actual footprints. The way you went was a little shocking, but much better.

Ah, hemp, is there anything it can't do?

Very funny, I found myself chuckling all the way through.

I assumed that your preview picture of Sealand was just an attempt to find a generic oil rig, I didn't actually expect you guys to know about it.

Jeremy's character was so great :D

"I'm not convinced we're using enough hemp"
"Alright, fine. I will be the bigger man" *pulls out gun*

These lines made me laugh so much ^^

I kinda suspected that death might be the answer when the line "one of us has to go" came up, even though that wasn't the intention.

Great video, though, guys, and great acting. I smell oscar contention for next year =p.

Quality, quality video. The best in a while.

The preview pic had me telling my mate (iamafish) about 'that nation off the coast of Britain', and not being able to name it, so I was relieved when you mentioned it.

Best video since the switch to the Escapist, and there have been some very good ones.

Great video guys. The stinger was brilliant.

That was great! It kind of reminded me of Unnatural Resources, in all the best ways. The jokes were fast-paced and hilarious, the deliveries were just right, and the end was pure gold.

I'm not sure how someone dying would reduce your carbon footprint more than them being fired (and thus the company is no longer responsible for their carbon footprint), but still amusing.

I've been sick all weekend and really needed a laugh, so thanks for this. Definitely the best since the move to the escapist, the singer had me on the ground.

I liked the really quirky characters in this one. Jer being obsessed with Sealand I just found really humorous for some reason. It wasn't explained or reasoned for, he just was.
Nothing to see here.

Really good.
Especially Jer's 'ultimate' commitment vs. his vice.

Nice one, guys. LRR + any office scenario is pretty much always gold.
