Nice to see Morgan featured in a video before he went galavanting around the countryside.

I quite enjoyed the parody of CNN's tech-heavy reporting, and all the hilarious repercussions therein.

One question, as Morgan played the previous incarnation of Ustus Thrimbltrimmer in Assessment (is that right?) is this another of Action 9's special technologies to avoid the black holes caused by the same actor being seen playing two different character's in the same video? How did you avoid this catastrophe with such videos as the Rumble and Rapstar 64K?

Twas 'larious. Your recent videos have been inciting a lot more actual laughter from me recently, which is rare as I'm more likely to be silently amused. But, of course bad sitcoms don't have a silently amused track.

@ench There were two Thrimbletrimmers in Assessment. It is more than possible that there is a third.

maybe the Thrimbltrimmer clan is just big, and lacks the imagination to come up with more names for their members.

Anyway, nice video guys

Morgan played Eustice R. Thrimbletrimmer
This was Eustice J. Thrimbletrimmer

I did wonder at first why Paul wasn't wearing the lab coat but that was cleared up because he clearly had to be "guy with three PS3s"

My favorite bottom banner was definitely "If your election lasts longer than 4 hours consult a doctor"

Good Solid video. It has been a while since we've had a full Green Screen Video. Or even a mostly Green Video. Great work.

Man, I remember that "world first hologram" shtick, this is a way funnier parody than the actual event was for me :D

And so fantastically self-referential! :mrgreen:

Great work, loved Morgan being stereotypically...Morgan, Yummies raises its head once again, and great call-back with Paul. Solid job here.

Great video. To quote my brother: "Laugh out loud" [sic]

Especially loved the whole concept of the timing misshap, and the solid logic behind planning to have a hologram of the "weatherman and senior political analyst" in the studio. Oh, and the adventurous Mimi, of course.

I always found the hologram crap to be a bit ridiculous. Too bad Morgan didn't break theirs...

Awesome video btw. Action9 is always a win in my book.

Liking the use of extra gag space using the banner at the bottom.

Will we see more Thrimbletrimmer's? Seems to be an extensive family

Thrimbletrimmer is a reference too, though as I recall he was played by Paul last time, alongside Morgan.

So this therefore is the arrival of a third Thrimbletrimmer, the second Eustice too.

I liked how Paul's character did not have a name. He was just a guy with 3 PS3's.

Also great job guys.

Whoa... I was just watching the three PS3's youtube replies on season 4 disk 3 like 2 hours before this. TIME IS CYCLICAL. Also, Paul should found his own party, based on his 3 PS3's.

what with yummies corporation, the ice cream video references, 3 ps3s and Thrimbletrimmer i think this vid is dangerously close to the legal fan-service limit.

A sublime laughter experience.

Though, despite the under-video warning, I was almost hoping to actually find out about the BC Election. XD

Haha, Les Advantures de Mimi. I lol'd hard.

Also, the t-shirt ad made me laugh. James's little shiver of ecstasy was so perfect.

Woo, my first post on LRR =P
I had been a little disappointed with 'Has this ever happened to you?', but this really made up for it.
I mean how can a video be bad if it's got Paul and his 3 PS3s.
I think we all know though, that the most important issue facing Canadians at the moment is in fact the increasingly rapid growth of Thrimbletrimmers.
Good Job guys.

Also you should definitely do 'Les Aventures de Mimi et le Bicyclette Magique' as a seperate video.

T-shirt add was awesome.

Also "Watch us touch data" and all the other bottom of the screen things. Awesome.

*sigh* The first half of this video was good... it think. I guess you need to see the second for it to really make an impression. Perhaps ill have the patience and an hour of free time later to watch the rest.
