I think we've gotten to the point where we're making mostly funny videos, just like the slogan says.
Mostly. Mostly.
Like in "Alien"... "mostly".
I don't really do pop culture references. And I think I've only watched funny movies for the past decade.
You don't even TiVo or Netflix non funny things?
At this point, I'm so deep in the viral videos world I only watch movie previews or trailers. And only if they're doing something unique.
Our sweet-ass plasma HDTV is completely wasted on you. I'm going to sell it for some magic beans on eBay. And remind me to beat you with a stick tomorrow.

I noticed the backwards way is the right way 'cuz the car in the backround went forward when the jumpsuit guy was checking it out (ie. "Beam down was successful" etc.). Hadn't noticed anything else.

Awesome! Great concept. Jumpsuit alien could use some acting lessons, though.

I love those sorts of things where they show something two ways to get different movies (they're hard to come by) This is the best thing that isn't idolympics on this site! (I don't know if that sounded like a compliment or not.)

Truly inspirational film mates, showing how perception and cognition can be totally different (and smt. opposing) in people and still make sense in the grand skale of things. Keep up the good work. Expecting more of this kind.

Good, but there was a goof. The car was still there when the guy in the jumpsuit teleported back to his ship or whatever. I thought the guy drove away....?

A very impressive piece. Proud of you Paul, you really came up with a creative concept and executed it well. Also Casey pulling off the backwards speak was fairly amazing!!
