SAKURA-CON IS NEXT WEEKEND!
We’re super excited for Sakura-Con next weekend. We might be next to the Funimation booth but who knows what will happen. We’ll be shopping around our new Volume 2 DVDs and our new shirts! Or atleast new shirt colors! Come over to our booth to find out what glorious colors we went with March 29-31!
Oh yeah and we made a new sketch based off of some dumb internet blah blah blah.
We Bought A Yoshi
We had a fun time filming this video with our video game journalist friend, Alex Rubens. And maybe it has something to do with the fact that he’s written for magazine like Electronic Gaming Monthly and Nintendo Power, because it’s been getting posted around!
We’ll be coming to Sakura-Con this year (March 29-31th) and we’ll be debuting some exclusive merch, so come by if ya wanna hang out. We’ll be putting up a video a week for the next few weeks so there’s that too!
Christmas Post 2012 Edition
In this year’s Christmas special, we address the age old question: Why has it taken over 12 years for Nintendo to put a DVD player in one of their consoles. It’s just kinda weird.
We just bought a bunch of cool film equipment with our winnings from Viral Video Showdown so stuff’s gonna start looking all profesh. This was a great for us. We got to collaborate with Max Gilardi (Hotdiggedydemon), we were on tv, and most importantly we got to film some really fun videos. It doesn’t get better than that. Actually, I’m sure next year will be even better.
WE WERE ON TV!
The show aired in Canada two weeks ago and according to one of my friends, in New Mexico as well. The show was a great experience. Personally speaking, I checked two important items on my bucket list during the production of that episode.
-I made Kevin Pereira laugh.
-I got to meet Adam Sessler, and more importantly I was critiqued by one of the greatest critics of all time.
The folks behind the show unfortunately had to edit down what was actually intended to be an hour long program down to thirty minutes. Which sucks because the judges had so many great points to make about making videos for the internet that ended up getting shortened down. Brittani Louise Taylor was super sweet and said she wishes that there was a show that chronicled our real lives. Maybe it was the slip and slide that got her. Sandeep Parikh even met me and Peter back in the green room after shooting was all done and we had some good conversations. He even said if we’re ever down in LA again, he’d be down to make a short with us! Tempting. Very tempting.
Our Viral Video Showdown episode got moved to Dec 4 and no one told us until halfway through Scare Tactics. Nice.
The Golden Age of Television Begins…
The video game sketch comedy group I started in high school is going to be on television this Tuesday. I’m kinda freaking out a little bit, but in a good way.
Watch us compete on Viral Video Showdown (Syfy Channel) this Tuesday 11/20 @10:30pm / 9:30 c to find out!
Julien Destroys Your Mind
Yeah so it looks like our episode on Viral Video Showdown is going to be next Tuesday on the 20th. I promise it’ll be a goody. Enjoy the BTS for this week.
Julien Makes His Triumphant Return. All Is Right Again.
For those of you who may have wondered where Julien has been for the past couple of months, to answer in short: both ends of the Bible belt. He stopped by Washington last Halloween weekend and we were able to get him in a sketch that I had originally had written a character for myself, Tom Nook, who is a raccoon in the game Animal Crossing. He was arguably the most entertaining character in the sketch and when I heard Julien was eager to do a sketch before he left the next day, instead of hogging all the raccoon glory for myself, I decided to instead give it to Julien since I knew he could make it a million times funnier. It wasn’t until Julien had arrived to shoot that I realized how some might be offended by us putting a black guy in a raccoon costume and view it at us trying to make some off-color racist joke. We weren’t and didn’t. In all of the fucked up things that occur in this sketch, making a cheap joke about Julien’s race is beneath us and I hope that people seeing the sketch don’t try to misconstrue it as otherwise.
This was one of the funniest sketch to film in a long time, though of course every day filming typically is. I have so much footage left over for the Behind the Scenes, I’m so excited for yall to see it next week.
