If You’re Not Getting, Get Going!

Gather near, slobbering troll-beasts, and writhe in the presence of the new Rock TV!

This is another of our ham-fisted “message videos”, similar in approach to the old “Jaded Dating Tips” video we did back in 2005. While perhaps a bit more hard-hitting than other message videos we’ve done, it is also admittedly a hodgepodge of ideas. Some of the gags reflect Adam O’s paradigm of the Bible Ass-Man who uses scripture to challenge people’s pain and politics without any sense of empathy. Other gags (not-so-subtlety) go after the “feel good all the time” school of Christianity that tends to breed rampant church-hopping and consumerist mentalities.

Also, it features jokes.

By far, my favorite part of this video is the dream sequence about 4 minutes into the video. It’s a wonderfully surreal aside that interrupts the established pacing of the video for no reason other than to be strange. Other favorite bits are Leroy’s obnoxious prayer ambiance and his sadness at erasing his sin-free record. Overall, while probably not one of our top 10 efforts, I feel like this video is solidly consistent, with enough good lines and tossed-off gags to keep a smile going throughout.

Enjoy, and stay tuned for the next new Rock TV, coming this Halloween!

    So how did the Abraham Lincoln no pants thing go over at church?

    A few shrieks and solid laughter. By the time the video had gotten to that point, it had already gone over so well I wasn’t worrying about it anymore.
