The biggest challenge when making a staged video is to make sure the actors don't appear as if they're acting.

I don't care if it was fake or not..it was pretty cool, and good music. And if it even made one person who saw it feel better, then it was all worth it.

I liked how the piano pissed off the douchebag balding guy that was screaming on the cell phone.

Hello Mr. Sucker. I might have enjoyed it had the actors not been so awful. It's a decent premise, but their execution needed work.

I love the Internet.


Well it was pretty clear just from watching the video that the only real people were the ones in the background going "What the hell is going on?" Still enjoyed seeing a ghost piano piss off an angry businessman.

libranoelrose: Because People in power are Stupid: Some of those people (particularly Santa at the end) were hamming it up for the Youtube video.

hammering?


Nope, ham. Chewing the scenery. A grandiose performance that lets you know THE ACTOR IS ACTING. BRIAN BLESSED's entire career, essentially. Think of Calculon on All My Circuits, or anywhere, really.
