morg: These videos drive me nuts. From the first cut shot I'm trying to figure out what they are selling.


Early-morning, slow-motion pan?  Check.
"I wonder what they're gonna do", indecipherable intro? Check.
Crappy techno music? Check.
Lots of Gap-ad extras standing around, high-fiving, bro-hugging, laugh-and-point-ing? Check.
Packaged/produced awesomeness?  Check.

Every. Single. Time.

Angela Lansbury's Merkin: Why are they throwing detergent on.  Shouldn't water alone be enough?


We ginned up some slip 'n slides back in the day using only construction plastic. One of the issues we ran into is that the water  tended to flow channels on the plastic and leave dry areas. The soap helped spread it out a little and also make it more slippery.

As long as you didn't let the soap dry out, either.

August11: This is the fourth or fifth video like this I've seen on Fark. There are probably more. They all are very slick productions. Expensive equipment and permissions. Young AMWs. Cool editing. Exciting activity. Not sure what they are selling but someone needs to pay the bills.

A possible name for the genre might be "Slickumentary" or "First World Squandered Shorts"


ImOscar: assburp: Two Dogs Farking: This week, on Rich Dicks...

I'm waiting to find out where the advertising angle for this is.  You don't just have that type of filming crew around and scripted antics for nothing.


I love how everybody thinks quality camera work and editing are somehow expensive now. This shiat can be done on something as simple as my Sony Nex-5 and edited on any good desktop computer. Hell, it can even be done by people in film school. And whatever else is missing can be rented relatively reasonably.

Doesn't mean that this particular video isn't expensively made, just that a lot of Gee, Wow! doesn't cost as much as you people think it does.

Detergent makes the slide more slippery. Likely they didn't have a huge water supply.
