Some Buddy That I Used To Know
Weâ€™re back! New material! I know it seems like weâ€™ve been gone for a while, but thatâ€™s because (and I think we can tell the press this now) ThesePeople are actually SEAL Team 6. So we were a little busy.
Anyway, todayâ€™s offering is a star studded Internet crossover to end all Internet crossovers. It stars myself (Matt) along with Six Finger Fistâ€™s Dwayne Bartholomew and Sean Cameron of the upcoming Mort and Friends. Both of these blokes are no strangers to ThesePeopleâ€™s Internets as you can see Dwayne in â€œProfessor Palsâ€ and the cult hit â€œHot Dogs Anytimeâ€ while Sean chews the scenery in â€œThe Englishmanâ€ and â€œGhostelâ€.
This sketch was once again shot in a fancy hotel out on the Left Coast and was shot and masterfully edited by our good friend Joel Slabaugh.
Should I tell you what it is now? Probably. I wanted to give you all the back story first so you know all the people who donated their valuable time and talents and that way you donâ€™t just see the title and then go watch the sketchâ€¦oh rightâ€¦THE SKETCH! Itâ€™s called â€œThe Lame-Overâ€ and itâ€™s a parody of the popular film â€œThe Hangoverâ€ except these three guys had a very different kind of night.
We hope you enjoy the sketch! I think this will be our summer blockbuster and shatter all previous opening week numbers for a movie parody sketch.
Weâ€™ll see you again real soon!
Thatâ€™s right, ladies and gents, ThesePeople have risen from their graves ala Altered Beast (ask your older brothers) for a new year of new comedy! And now weâ€™re in a new city, New York City! (also donâ€™t be surprised if this year features sketches from Chicago, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and of course Detroit.)
Iâ€™ve been in NY for nearly a year now and Iâ€™ve found two things: first, I found some great people to collaborate with. (Youâ€™ll meet some of them in this sketch.) Secondly, Iâ€™ve learned that I absolutely LOVE Big Buck Hunter. Itâ€™s pretty much the funnest thing in the world, and nothing is more satisfying than killing a huge elephant for your trophy animal.
Todayâ€™s sketch combines these two things, presentingâ€¦â€Buck Hunterâ€ starring myself, and new friends of ThesePeople Jon, Wheeler and Dee. It tells the cautionary tale of what happens when video game taunting goes too far.
We really hope you enjoy it, itâ€™s got action, adventure, some comedy, and a lot of great special effects from our editor Mr. Steve Immer.
This winter weâ€™ve been stockpiling scripts and meeting lots of new people to work with so we can start making more of the comedy you helped make more popular than Susan Boyle on YouTube.
So watch, comment, like us on Facebook and most importantlyâ€¦enjoy!
Stay tuned and stay awesome,
MaTT and ThesePeople
