Andy wrote this one for us based on our need to have a video beginning with every letter of the alphabet. Now we have the whole set.

Also, I really like this script.

Nice. Good that you did not go over the top with the British accent. In England.

oooh! almost a haiku Kneuroak! almost! only four syllables on that last line!

Sheer genius in this video, guys!
Just to add my two cents, you could of had another female act as Ash's "Xavier." The bit with the musical stuck in his head was hilarious, it sorta added some continuity humor from the previous video.

Why the fuck is matt wearing a suit while playing his 360? It doesn't demand -that- much class.

Whoa Graham, you clean up very nicely. And with that posh British accent... Kathleen better watch herself! Hot, nubile young supermodels will be flocking to your door any minute now.

Seriously though, that was hilarious! I guess you guys were making up for the lack of singing in the last video with Graham's outbursts this time? In any rate it was awesome, great job everyone!

Heh, this was a good video. The minutiae in Graham's actions made it all the funnier; I wonder if Andy intentionally scripted them or it was the result of Graham's improvisation (e.g. putting the glass down on table for emphasis & the various other gestures and facial expressions).

Several other questions: Who's room is that? Who's pimpin' cane was Graham using? WHY was Matt dressed up?

P.S. The line about the figment preferring gin over scotch was brilliant...especially for an alky like me. :D

P.P.S. ...that wasn't your soy sauce+water concoction, was it?

I'm not dressed up, I wear dress shirts all the time, and I was wearing that same brown corduroy jacket I was wearing in brain transplants... because it's a wicked awesome jacket.

And I was about to ask if that was the same jacket too... it did look oddly familiar.

Great video guys. I really liked the simplicity to it. Plus, the shot from behind was pretty swell.

My only problem with it is that scotch whisky isn't dark. It's more of a pale amber color.

Bahh!! Damn dialup! It's only loaded half way.

But this half is frickin' hilarious. I like the part, "...I'm gonna get a song stuck in my head." And suddenly Graham bursts into song. Brilliant!

The cane was mine, and the alcohol this time was watered down Coke Zero. Which, thank god, I didn't have to drink.

It was probably coke. Also Matt dresses like this dude in the glasses a lot:

Which is a good thing. I think Matt looks cute in this week's video!

Also: very damn nice guys. I loved Andy's writing, and the lighting effects were great too.
HOLY SHIT GUYS! BEARS!

Ya, the lighting effects were very cool. I liked the concept. Not hilarious funny but clever funny.

I swear Graham's accent was not British. It was just Hotty-Totty Canadian english, was it not? Like bad guys talk in movies.

I half expected the lights to snap back on once Matt had left, the 'figment' to sit down, turn on the game system, and say "I thought he'd never leave".
"...so he turns to me, and he says 'Why so serious?' He puts the blade in my mouth, and says 'Why so serious?

I, too, have an inner suave man that tells me how to win over the fairer sex.

Too bad he has no effect on me. :/

That's exactly what I was expecting.


Well, I can't say this one had my laughing the whole time, or even laugh period. I chuckled at the Showtunes part, that was very well done, and the gin and tonic bit was alright, but it just wasn't that funny. Now, I'm certainly not saying it was boring since it was still entertaining, just definitely not very funny.
Also, your way of shooting is unique and also kind of...strange. I like how you really long continuous cuts, but whenever the camera angle changes, it just seems to forced. I don't notice it in most videos, but it was especially prevalent in this one. Like when Graham goes to sit behind Matt, you could really tell it was a change, instead of it going smoothly. But still, the long continuous cuts works for you guys, and I know you like experimenting with different styles, so it's all good.

Keep 'em comin, guys!

The scotch/gin and tonic line was great. When Graham started singing I laughed pretty hard; the line "Especially well-dressed ones with a posh british accent" was pure gold.

Also, Anachronism asked who's room it is. I think it's Matt's bedroom, which was seen in the Uwe Boll videos and briefly in the Twelve Days of Christmas one.
I'm a very boring person.

Matt's basement. Unless he also sleeps in the basement.
