LoadingReadyRun: Scout's Dishonor

Can someone tell me if it's hypothetically possible for a boy to be 11 and have his balls drop?

lol, everyone knows that the keys to survival in any environment is to rip up your clothes so they are tattered but still wearable, grow out your hair and scream incoherently at people who pass by.

As hilarious as this was, all I could think through most of the video was, "what kind of dork wears their merit badge sash with a Class B uniform?"

Seriously, that stuff only got dragged out for honors ceremonies in my troop. Also, I get the feeling Graham is yet another casualty of the lost neckerchief slide. But I kid because I love, and this was really, really funny. :)

I'm sure the totally non-copyright infringing alternate scouting organization represented in this video has different uniform rules than any real world scouts you are familiar with.

I was going to comment on the Peter Jackson quality forced perspective work, but that's unnecessarily snarky, and the transparency of it adds to the charm and humor of the video.

Edited to add: I want to see Graham sawing any branch large enough to need to be sawed with the saw blade on that little 2" long Swiss Army Knife.

Ahh perspectice tricks and a scary-large knife...

About halfway through this, I thought to myself, "This feels like a Kathleen script."

Outstanding work by everyone!

I just noticed something rather disturbing... Matt's character has a fire badge on his sash. They let that kid touch fire!?

He seems the type to have much experience making fires.

As an ex-scout I can guarantee that not only was this hilarious but also 100% true. No seriously, psychopath with knife, check, kid who's not trusted with anything, check, kid who questions everything and you can't be sure whether is being sarcastic, check (wait i think that may have been me) and cartography being rendered pointless by technology, seen it all.

Oh and peeling potatoes that happened.

Oh my god Matt. Matt was fantastic. So fantastic.

So who else wants a follow up episode titled "The Lunch Tray Incident"?

Bearwalker badge? Bearwalker badge.

Best video I've seen from you guys in a while. The writing was excellent and felt stylistically distinct and refreshing(I'm assuming that's due to Kathleen writing this one). Not that I think Graham and Paul's writing styles are stale mind you.

More than the writing, the acting really stands out to me in this one. Matt is bloody perfect as the Wilson character and Paul and James fit their roles quite well. Backed by a stalwart performance by Graham (as usual) and a solid display from Ben it all comes together splendidly.

Oh and the camera work was nice but nothing less than expected. :)

Oh god, it's all so true.

Art imitating life like never before. At least the 1st LRR Troup don't have a habit of walking around. Or away.
Or screaming. All the screaming.

Dammit, I was wrong on the writer!

But....it makes sense that Kathleen would write such fitting characters for everyone, especially Matt and James.

The chubby blonde one killed it in this one, the other two... well... not so much.

Now I'm curious -- what the hell was this "Lunch Tray Incident"?

That's the one you choose to be curious about? Not "The accident with the squirrel" that somehow got him banned from using string?

They all look more like midgets than children...

"I have a knife" was a great line though.

I'm not sure if I should be more scared of Wilson (Matt's adorable character with a dark past) or Derkins (the one with the army knife).

Absolutely brilliant.

Wow that was great. The bit with the knife and just Matt in general were perfect. Also I love the merit badges

Since you put it that way... the Lunch Tray Incident did get him banned from potatoes, which to me sounds more intriguing. That means no fries, no poutine... hell, no iPotatoes! That IS bad!

Wow, nice forced-perspective on the shots. You put a lot of thought into the cinematography. The writing was awesome, too. Great job, guys.

Thanks!

The other trick was getting much longer shorts for the scouts. Their shorts all covered the knee, making them look shorter, while my shorts were niiiiiice and high 0_0

The forced perspective makes me woozy. I was certain that the after-credits stinger would consist of infant-sized Graham being beset by huge boy scouts.

PayneTrayne:
My father hates LRR, whenever I listen to podcasts he gets pissy. When I watch Desert Bus he yells at me to turn it off.

I put on this video and he laughed. I think that means you guys win.

Wait, I don't understand this. Why doesn't he like LRR or get pissy when you listen to the podcasts? Do you have headphones?

I can understand if he doesn't get the humor most of the time, but if it's a noise problem, if you watch with headphones on, he can't argue that you're being noisy.

Really enjoyed Matts character in this one and the matching uniforms

Man, I wish my scout troop was this funny :).

Would all of these incidents happen to be references to the Noodle Incident?

Well lunch tray that involves Potatoes could be anything but Squirrel with string seems pretty straightforward. . . "flossing" *shudder*

Loved the perspective work on the camera, guys.

my mum says I am not allowed to watch videos on the Internet after I found videos of her and her new boyfriend dancing naked, Oh here she comes! *closes down browser with alt+F4*

I dispute this episode; these aren't boy scouts at all! They quite clearly ARE NOT 11, and they don't hate gay people enough. My immersion is dribbling out of my ears.

Hopefully people realise this is a joke

See, this is going to make a conversation go places I may not want it to, but as a long time Boy Scout/Former Leader myself (Which by the way, made this sketch hit home in all the best ways.) I have to ask, where do Boyscouts hate gays? Is this like a States thing that I'm not aware of, because we have quite a few openly gay scouts in Canada and from my own talks with them, they've felt nothing but welcomed, (In fact, if I recall one by even said "It's good to -actually- feel welcome").

This video made me feel really old.

Quit talking about this hypothetical potato incident, there's still a gag order in place.

Yes, it's very much a states thing; The boy scouts of America have had numerous votes that all reject allowing gays in (see this http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-18879828 )and as an englishman, I'm enjoying my favourite occupation of taking the piss out of America.

Did.. Anyone else notice the boom above Graham or was that just me? Were one of the 11-year-olds holding it? ;) That said, that was.. Some pretty convincing 11-year-old acting. o.o

Ah, a Kathleen video.. So good to see those! The badges are neat too, I assume Tally creations? :D

Also, I think I should be glad the Air Force Cadets in Australia never had "badges" like the Scouts. That said, James with the knife? Totally the kind of people I've known who were in the AAFC. The smartphone thing was less of a thing, except for senior cadets (which I eventually was), they often had the "luxury" of phone use, though it.. Ceases to be helpful when you're directly in the middle of bushland. XD
