How To Be A Klingon Male

January 27, 2016

Men (and women): You may, in your encounters on the world wide interweb have come across articles or posts telling you how to be a better man.

These revelations, no doubt will have been compiled by keyboard jockeys, self styled lifestyle gurus and other radicals seeking to destabilise our way of life with their never ending torrents of bullshit that needlessly over complicate things.

Seriously, who writes this shit? #17? And 18? Fack awff. Well, it got me thinking and I figured one can be as macho, metro sexual or handy with power tools as they want, it doesn’t matter how manly you think you are because ultimately you are not Klingon. And as we all know that’s about as manly as things get next to a carniverous gun toting beard that was born to kill.

Seeing as that is an unrealistic aspiration for even the best of us, as a remedy I put together this Klingon self help video. Don’t thank me, I’m just doing my bit to improve the world.

Hobbit Perfume Advert

May 6, 2015

Just a quick one because I don’t think this video needs much explanation. It requires a little though so I’ll write the article Buzzfeed style because I know you’re all busy ‘on the go’ types that don’t have time to read proper sentences.

1) So

 

2) I made this video as a parody

3) like, a joke, a piss take

4) of the Charlize Theron Dior adverts. Infact that’s where I got the audio from.

5) If you’ve seen The Hobbit: Battle of The Five Armies you’ll know what I’m talking about.

6) (insert appropriate gif here)

7) Just watch the video, I can’t even…

Time is the Key Ingredient

February 16, 2015

I have really been neglecting this blog, I feel like a bad parent. I know it’s there, I’m just not giving it the attention it deserves for whatever extraneous reasons.

You may remember (or you may not) the Lars Andersen: a new level of archery video that went viral towards the end of January.

Ben Green and I thought it would be a good idea and exercise to parody it.

Most videos that go viral have about a week where they’re being talked about and passed around the public arena. After that everyone moves onto the next one and ceases to care. Sometimes you’ll get a parody of the video a week after and people will start passing that about but beyond that I’m not sure if people revisit those things.

This issue means the video not only has to be made in a very short space of time but it also has a short shelf life (in theory). Additionally, in order for people to be made aware of the parody, the video would have to be shamelessly and intensely promoted online for it to be seen by anyone.

Unless of course the video is made by a big company with a large fan base and/or links to the press. By the time Ben and I got round to shooting our parody four days had passed and the original was on 16million views, I was working on a freelance job and so time wasn’t particularly on our side.

We both, came up with a bunch of ideas and gags from watching the video, combined them into a rough structure and spent half a day shooting things involving lacing shoes that we thought would be funny. In the evening, I only had a few hours to edit the thing and then record the narration which Ben wrote and I riffed on and I think that’s where it came together.

I don’t think you need to see the source material to enjoy our little video (but you should and it would help) and I also think it works outside the influence of its origins. I just wish I had, had time to promote the shit out of it on twitter, etc.

Japanese Doctor Who

August 14, 2014

I love the internet, one minute you can be looking for something the next you’re seeing something else you never would have expected to simply because that’s where the adventure has led you.

That’s exactly what happend about four years ago, little did I know where it would eventually lead me or what it would lead me to.

There’s a whole subculture of remixes, parodies and homages to horrible (and good) film rip offs and that’s ultimately where this video will end up, in that wonderfully bizarre corner of the internet. For the moment and as of writing this post it has enjoyed (as have I) 15 seconds of internet viral stardom.

I was going to write a nice little post going into more detail but Wired and Henshin Justice have already done such a wonderful job it’s just easier to link you to them instead.

Black Hay – I Feel Something

February 14, 2014

I thought I would share a video that I worked on for Black Hay since today, February 14th 2014 aka Valentines day is the day it is released as a single.

I can’t remember how we ended up with the idea for the video (usual way I guess) but Lot in Sodom was quite an influence. Watch and enjoy, any questions put ’em in the comments section.
