Epic movie. I love you LRR.
Shame about season 1 as after chilling in the chat for the last 2 days of Desert Bus I had to sit through and watch every single video on the site. D=

I am thoroughly amused by the sheer percent of responses that are hoping for the return of Paul's beard. Can't say I disagree though. =p

You don't understand. For those of us who became fans in the Beard Epoch, it's serious business. Paul's beard, at full size, is more powerful than anyone can imagine. And it defined him for years, even before LRR. The return to beardage is like. . . like waking up from a bad dream for us.

Damn those Bussers and their generosity. . .

ottoman i completely agree with you there. a return to beard is a return to form
i am very much APPOINT at this video :)

FORUM IS APPOINT OF PAUL REGROWING BEARD!

Paul totally deserved silver.

Also, IT'S BAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!

Beautiful, guys. Now there's an Olympic event to watch.

That was completely outrageous and funny every second. I imagine the women's beard growing competition was even more of a sight to watch.

Yay for fake beard win!

I hope Paul gets his Goatee back

I miss Paul's goatee. :'(

I started from page 1 and watched all of it, much of it multiple times trying to convert friends and family, so I have a 'vague' appreciation for the sheer might of the goatee. >D
Incidentally, "The Shavening" is the video that hooked my brother. =p

I was more specifically amused at how reference to beard and Paul simultaneously has almost completely overshadowed rest of the video. At least as far as comments are concerned.

*Clearing throat*
Ahem... A mighty fine video, I might say. Just a couple of things struck me as odd.

1. Hans Egan? Seriously guys? :D That's like the most anti-Finnish name ever. I understand of course that Finland is such a small country it would be very hard (and even unnoticable for 99,9% of viewers) to come up with a real finnish name, but that Hans-name cracked me up for the wrong reason. Gave me a mental image of a german sociopath.

2. A finnish beard grower would NEVER EVER talk to swedish competitors. Finland and Sweden are long competitors and have been the nemesis' of eachother as long as anyone can remember. The relation is somewhat similar to the relationship Canada and USA have, both mocking eachother but deep down thinking they're both okay.

And don't take this critisism too seriously, of course no-one would be angry because of things like that. Just tought that the LRR-crew might be a bit intrested in some trivia.

And holy shit Matt's beard was awesome. I laughed twice as hard because of the winning finn and for that, I salute you, LRR.

Great sketch as always.But I have to say that Hans Egan is more of a Swedish or Norwegian name rather then a Finnish one.Possibly Danish,but we would have to argue about that.

i was laughing soo hard at the title and did not see that growth coming from Matt
can he even grow facial hair?

also YAY CANADA FOR GETTING A GOLD ON HOME SOIL!

That was probably the best and totally not fake beard ever grown!
And the twist shocking as your tounge in a power socket.

Not NEARLY as funny as the Toilet Paper one. Need more TOILET HUMOR!!!!!!!!!

daheikmeister:
Hey I found a mistake! You guys used the Estonian anthem for Sweden in the medal scene!

No, the team in the video is Finland, and we used the Finnish anthem for them.

Well I'll be damned the Estonian and Finnish Anthems have identical music. what a odd thing for two countries to do....

BTW pardon my mistake on the Sweden thing

Woem:
Monty-Pyhton-tastic!

Seconded.

Beard growing? you mean they hang out with a girl around other people to dispell rumors of being gay?

Great short guys.

Well done!

How long did it take you to shoot that?

Is it just me... Or does the theme to this show sound like "the Safety Dance"

a beautiful display of beard growing, i must say.

That... was awesome.

But, as a Finn, I have to say... Hans? Why is it that when Finland is randomly included in a scetch, the names are almost never actually Finnish?

Impressive video you guys, perhaps there could be a shirt with the slacking team, the beard grwoing team and other "factual" olypic teams you can think of?

lol good stuff. Keep it up.

Everyone is making me laugh with the 'It must have taken sooo long!' comments. I think you all must me pre-pubescent or just unable to grow a beard. The two real beards could easily be grown by a guy like myself in around two weeks.

Oh, I can imagine. Paul's Beard is the only know substance that is totally resistant to Phailinite.

God help us. God help us all.

I would have thought that the Hungarians would have made it to the finals... Still, Hilarious video, any update on when we'll see the next commodore Hustle?

Excellent video, you guys are certaintly keeping with your usual comic excellence.

Gotta love the theme song.

Lol neither Hans nor Egan are Finnish names. XD

It's not ;)

That what I was thinking. There are alot of scandinavian fans to LRR here, ask us!
And another, swedish women with facial hair??? I feel ofended! (Sarcasm people, Love LRR)

MadeinHell:
Lol... Dear LRR crew you need to do a podcast on this episode NOW.
I just want to know how the hell did you record it xD. Are the beards fake or did you just record it over the course of few weeks (months Oo).

I want to know it now!
Oh and also why didn't Paul grow his famous goatee? It would give him points for style ;P

They did it in reverse order. Jer and Paul are notorious among LRRs for their beard growing skills, and everyone knows matt can't grow a beard anyway.

They had them grow out their beards first. Then they trimmed them for each scene until they reached a clean shave, which is where the episode started.

saw it coming..
