It should have been VI so it could be GTA: Vancouver Island

You can see the barge I used to work on in a couple of the shots.

Visually, this is one of the best videos you guys have done. I am extremely impressed to see that you guys know not only how to do tricks with the camera but also how to actually make a film.

On the humour side, I thought the first list of things he had done went on a bit too long, and I though the joke at the end was not funny - but I started giggling madly the second Paul started talking.

Probably one of my favourite videos in a while, I think.

I love the walking scene where paul changes backgrounds and occasionally, hats.

We demanded more Paul, and we got it. Also, him without the glasses is pretty epic.
I might just....wait, wait.....definitely yes here it comes..

Wow, all of the shots in the video were beautiful. You guys also really did the Paul-walking-but-also-changing-places-in-the-background shots really well. The hats threw me off at first but then as soon as i got it, you had that great shot of Paul on a building with a giant hat on. In general it was pretty epic :D

Paul is the down on his luck immigrant who has to make a living in the seedy underbelly of Vancouver Island. I like it.

Also, I must have that hat, the really tall one.

Yay Paul, great stereotypical Russian accent (I don't know how close it is to the real accent, but it sounded great).

I really liked the start, when Paul's describing what he's done all the way down to really inane things. The hat switching and post walking was win! Surprisingly, Paul did look somewhat threatening in this vid, which is weird because in all truth he's just a more cuddly version of Gordon Freeman.

Also, some of the things he did (like replacing people's shoes) sound a lot like Evil Inc plots.

Good as far as the production that went into it, but...

I felt it was lacking on the laughs. It surprised me when I laughed at Paul walking into the pole, because I felt it was so totally... not in theme with the rest of the video. The narration, no offense, drags on, and Paul's voice is very easy, especially when he's talking in that accent, to sort of lull you off to a pleasant nowhere zone, where you're not really paying much attention to anything.

It was well DONE, but... I'll admit this is far from my favourite video.

Maybe I'm just picky.

It wasn't the funniest thing in the world, but is was entertaining, and cinematically well done.

Everyone reading this has registered for Digg, right? And dugg this video? It only takes around fifty clicks for it to make it to the first page, if they come fast enough. After that, the video can take care of itself.

Compared to the source material, it's a really good parody. Very well made, especially the transitions between with him walking when the background changes.

However, it wasn't really that funny. Plus, the combination of Paul's 'badassery' and the walking into a pole kinda conflicted.



I must say though, I am quite impressed with the editing. The transitions are still very good. The audio quality with the background music is also good. Neither one overpowers the other.

Overall, good video.
I can't think of a signature.

Really well done. Paul's accent was great!

Awesome editing, great overall video!

Now, 20 bucks to the one who can name what movie the "cityscape in fast motion" is from....
