  1. I’m not that impressed. These are professionals, getting paid well to make these short videos –and this is the best they could do? I know it’s not fair to judge them on one video, but I didn’t laugh.
    Seriously; they had a decent-sized budget, a team of experienced writers and comedians, and at least a week to come up with a funny 3-minute video. I should have been rolling on the floor laughing.

    Please don’t take this as me just being a hater; my sense of humor isn’t broken, I laugh at a lot of stuff (crying children, dead puppies, burn victims, et cetera), but when I clicked on the video I expected something better. I’m disappointed. Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna go cry and watch my “Kids in the Hall” dvd.

  2. Lighten up!

    Bottom line: Funny!

    Much funnier than dead puppies or burn victims!

    But maybe that’s just me…
