Man, the lighters seem to have an even worse reaction than TF had.
I still liked it more than the other 2 examples. (aside from the white flash I mentioned earlier. )

Just show hot asian girls with nice boobies for 10 minutes.

dready zim: Wasn`t bad, wasn`t good. He talked fast and said nothing, I`d rather it was the other way around.


You want him to talk nothing and say fast?

Sin_City_Superhero: Moar boobs, please.



But please, no boar moobs. In fact, don't hire dyslexics at all, they just cause luberot.

Really?

Taking notes from "Yahoo Entertainment News"?

Well... I'm glad this is getting some use again.

As an advertising guy, I liked it and think it has potential towards the youth market. You'll definitely get some advertising as a lot of the agencies who have digital departments thrive on this kind of stuff.. but you probably know that.

Also is a lot more professional this time.

They could carry around signs with posts from the thread like those women do to announce the boxing rounds.

I was trying to think of what the guy in the video's delivery reminded me of and now I remember. It reminds me of the "I didn't know I was going to have to say something in front of everyone on camera" guy at weddings. You've probably seen it happen. Everyone's having a good time, they've all had a few drinks and a guy has a microphone thrust in his hand and is asked to say a few words while various people video record it. They try to think of what to say and they end up talking way too fast etc.

FraggleStickCar: I'd say it reaches close to the levels of entertainment and hilarity that we had with FarkTV


Needs a musical guest.  I suggest:

I don't know how you'll capture the majesty of "It's a Streetlight" in 2 minutes, but good luck!

More sex,violence and alcohol! Still trying to get over fark TV the horror, the horror. It was easier to get over Macho Grande.

Also consider memes IRL...an interview with Lootie would be off the charts.

It's sad that smart girl can't talk.  It's like when somebody loses their ability to see, and their sense of hearing gets unnaturally good. Her smartness is nature's way of making up for cruelly robbing her of her ability to speak.

xiola: Objectively,
Mike is good, likeable and not too arrogant.
Visually good, I like the overlay technique.
Script is a bit bland.  Could be punchier, more sarcastic and witty.  More Talk Soup.
Showing top 3 comments was the best part.

/but what do I know.


yeah, over all I came here to say this...

First minute or so felt forced... really reaching for it...   but after we got the awkward few lines of commentary out of the way, it rolled a lot smoother.  too long of a set up for the joke?

to clarify - everything after "the story broke" felt much much smoother..  prior to that, just felt forced.

NO! Not another FarkTV! We can't take that kind of abuse!

/I'll admit I was one of the few that liked some of the videos on FarkTV
//You usually have to pay extra for that kind of punishment
 
2014-01-16 03:54:52 PM
I know Drew wants my honest, objective opinion here so ....

Boy, that sucked.

I wanted to like it ... because I do love my Fark.com and all things related. But that was just not good. Way too scripted, and dude was stiff as a board while delivering bad cliches like "married people don't ever have sex" ... 3 times. I was married, I get it.

The square root thing? WTF(ark) is that about. Reading a 25 digit number off a cue card does not work as comedy. Get rid of the dude and replace him with the random girl that showed up for no apparent reason. Topless.
 
2014-01-16 04:00:06 PM
I accidentally watched 5-10 seconds of it.  Web video annoys the fark out of me.
 
2014-01-16 04:03:11 PM
Fake.

I could tell by the lack of snark.
That was far too upbeat.

/curiously enjoyable, though, so there is that

Everything else is mediocre, but the script is awful. Needs to be written better, more interesting, concise, clever.

LAUGHTER OL I have agreement with this perhaps I could do the interviewing of the celebrities and also to do the judgment show such as the Judging Doctor Judith show where we could do the court cases of the individuals who are doing the posting on the Fark.com website.
 
2014-01-16 04:13:36 PM
I'd love to comment on the video, but I can't seem to get it to play. I'm using Firefox with NoScript, and I clicked to let everything on that page through (4 times, due to page reloads) and when I check it there's nothing being blocked, but when I click play I get the stupid ad pop-up on the player screen, but that's it. The black on the screen was very black, though, so that's at least one good thing about the video.

Oh please, oh please, oh please, oh pleeeease!

I always imagined her being a hybrid of Peggy from the credit card commercials, Foamy the Squirrel, with a bit of Latka's girlfriend Simka from Taxi. Taking time to post in between belts of some kind of root-spiced, blackberry schnapps "they don't sell much of around here."

More ideas if you give a sh*t:

Today in the politics tab:
*cut to footage of monkeys throwing sh*t


Today we discussed global warming. Here is a recap of the thread
*cut to footage of a troll crawling out from under a bridge

Today the mods greened a thread with a typo. Here is a recap:
*cut to footage of a nuclear bomb exploding

Today the mods greened a thread that was bit dated:
*cut to footage of a neckbearded hipster wearing a trillby who says "Sh*t, I saw that on Reddit like a week ago" Drew walks in and punches him.

FarkTV 2.0 or Fark.0?  Either way, it sucks and will probably die faster than FarkTV.  Having whatshisname read off the posts sucks the funny right out.  And really, what's the point of that bullshiat anyway?  If I want to read a farking Fark thread, I'll go to the thread and, you know, actually enjoy it.  Having the internet means not having to watch shows about stuff on the internet.  No Tosh, no Dyrdek, and no WTFark.  Some of us do have attention spans.

What's up with the editing anyway?  The guy teleported so farking much, I thought I was watching Dragon Ball Z.
