This video made the rounds yesterday. I noticed it was tagged "Tosh.0" so clearly these fine young men wanted us to see it.
Problem is, we're not big fans of FAKE videos. That's right, guys: Your cover is blown.
First, the good news: Your acting is superb. The guys playing the game — even the guys watching on the couch — are invested in the moment… totally in character. Robert Pattinson would be proud.
You even considered your set up. Some people might ask, "Well, why is this being recorded?" But your cameraman addresses that conundrum by stating, "Who the fuck plays Rock Band on a Saturday night? You guys are so gay." It's a simple line, but with incredibly important subtext: He wants other people to see how "gay" this is. It perfectly explains his motivation. It reminds me of the screenwriting genius of a young Pat Proft.
Here's your problem though: You got all the details wrong. Your drummer, though invested, is nowhere close to keeping a competent rhythm. The table the TV is sitting on obviously reflects light, but no light appears to be coming from the TV set.
But most importantly, Rock Band has its own sounds. Especially when you're failing out of the game: booing, guitar string crunching, other annoying crap. You totally blew the soundtrack. It's a dead giveaway.
So gentleman, for your efforts, I reward you with the worst possible fate a video can receive: a spot not on our show, but on our blog.
Congratulations! Hopefully, the rest of you will try harder.
