What keeps you so calm all the time?
2008 Sep 4
Hey Friends and Lovers,
Didnâ€™t I tell you we had a lot of material on the way? I wasnâ€™t kidding. Hot on the heels of the beloved urinal masterpiece â€œPlease Do Not Useâ€ comes â€œL.E.D.â€ a commercial for a Low Energy Drink, which pretty much kills you as it relaxes you.
This is kind of a funny story as this idea first came to me from a coworker of mine last fall. I wanted to turn it into a sketch, but we needed a lot of outdoor scenes and the weather had already turned here in the Mitten State, so we sat on it for a full year. We shot it this summer and as we were editing Nick sends me this article. If that link doesnâ€™t work what the article is about is a product called â€œDrankâ€ which is an ACTUAL anti-energy drink. The thing is I think â€œL.E.Dâ€ is actually a lot more clever than Drank, so in the end maybe we win.
Weâ€™d like to thank our friends Ciara Stella and Andrew Smith for guest starring in â€œL.E.D.,â€ and thanks to our editor Steve as always for some fantastic graphics, and our mixer Andrew for making the music track kick so much ass.
Weâ€™re going to try and get you guys a couple more sketches in the merry month of September and then hold on to your butts because ShocktOberSketch 3 (our yearly tribute to horror/comedy) will rock your face clear off (with laughter and possibly fright.)
For the kids, welcome back to school, for the â€˜dults enjoy the rest of this 4-day work week.
