Whatâ€™s up everyone?
Hope everyone enjoyed being outraged by our last release â€œGuitar Hero for Girlsâ€ which quickly became one of our most discussed sketches on YouTube of all time. To avoid getting any panties in any bunches we are back this week, with a much â€œsaferâ€ offering. BEHOLD!
GHOSTEL is in many ways a companion piece to â€œBuddy Escorts” and in many other ways, it is not. Pretty much the only thing it has in common with Buddy Escorts is that it was shot in November of 2008 while I was working in Los Angeles and was edited by our friend, guest editor, and cameo appearance maker Joel Slabaugh.
This sketch stars, and was co-written by, our good friend Sean Cameron who you no doubt all remember from last yearâ€™s â€œThe Englishman.â€ Sean visited the States from London and we took a day between nights of tearing up dance floors, drinking heavily, and confusing each other with slang terms we were unfamiliar with to shoot â€œGhostel,â€ the touching story of a British ghost trapped on Earth until he can finish his special business.
We hope it makes you laugh so hard you spit out your tea.
In all other things ThesePeople our merch is getting cooler and cooler. Soon weâ€™ll have sweet ass vinyl stickers available to the masses, and Operation: Give Pins to EVERYONE is going along swimmingly. On the world scale the UK and Australia have requested pins, along with another Lithuanian fan. As for the US we are holding steady at
24 25 states. Almost halfway there, everyone!
This week weâ€™d like to challenge our fans in North and South Dakota as no one in either Dakota has requested any pins yet. So the first person in the first Dakota we hear from will get EXTRA pins and maybe an extra treat, like a lock of Joelâ€™s hair, or maybe something less creepy. Come on Dakotas! Letâ€™s get to it!
ALSO we have an update on the first ever ThesePeople Live Show/DVD Release party. Thatâ€™s right DVD Release, and yes… party: Saturday May 2nd, 2009. Update your calendars and stay tuned for details.
Large it up!
