The Couch

Sometimes, it's pretty obvious when you've made a poor choice.

Watch Video

Wow, looks like a lot of work went into this one. One of my favorites yet can't wait for the loading time.

I was worried when he locked the couch up inside the storage unit and threw away the key. In my version the next scene would be waking up inside the locked storage unit on the couch.

That one was amazing! A lot different than your guys' normal style and I really liked it. Definitely a contender for one of my favourites. Good work!

A couch in the middle of nowhere wouldn't even crack the top 10 of bad places I've woken up after drinking. Hell, I could use some new furniture, and I could think of worse ways to get it.

I was thinking the same thing!

OT: Loved this one guys. Your videos are always brilliant but I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard. To be honest I'm not sure why... I guess the concept is so bizarre it appeals to my sense of humour!

I was thinking the same thing. I like what they did though.

So, while all the furniture was outside did you guys film an outdoor episode of Feed Dump?

XD Ok, I demand an explanation!

The second time he's there, one of his flip flops falls to the ground. The third time, that flip flop (as well as the shoes he was wearing) are gone. Conclusion: The couch eats shoes to power it's arcane AA enchantments.

Oh my god....I am literally sitting on that same couch right now......spooky

I think this is my favourite in a long time. I just love it.

He really should have started exploiting it for the physics breaking goodness. If you dig a large ramp from the sofa in the field and then keep rolling down it whilst drinking booze you can actually say you're delaying the inevitable heat death of the universe.

I was thinking that was going to happen too, but that would be a bit dark, so I'm glad they had a more "happy" funny ending.

Side note: Why do all his friends give him alcohol when he says he drank too much the night before? I'm no expert on hangovers, but something tells me more alcohol isn't a good cure.

No, but it is a traditional one. That's where "hair of the dog" comes from - the full phrase is "hair of the dog that bit you", ie, more of what got you into the mess in the first place.

Ah. I see. I've heard of that phrase before.
Kind of like "fight fire with fire". Only more like, "heal a burn with napalm".

:D Thanks for the insight.

Err, is there a pun I'm missing here..?

Hands down one of my favorite videos in a while!

When James first woke up in the field, I was wondering if this was LRR's rendition of the new Old Boy trailer. While a LRR inspired Old Boy would be...something...I'm happy to say I left satisfied

That was a great Twilight Zone-esque episode. Really dipping into some spooky-horror stuff, up until the chair, then I just burst out laughing.

I have no idea if there is a deeper message to this video but I love it at face value. There's just something awesome about pointing out that "Non-Alcoholic" beer still has some alcohol in it!

Hard alcohol numbs certain senses, so a small amount is effective against hangovers.

Why would you bring alcoholic chocolates to a teetolers(sp?) house?

He needs one more chair for the other side of that table. Also, I think this counts as a superpower.

"The Ooter Limits" surely. :P

Yeah, I went there.

I loved him slowly building a suite at the end. This is one of the classics.

Huh. I thought by the flask that they were just referring to some good ole' Mad Dog 20-20.

This is a great piece of writing and I love the part at the end where he starts eating liqueurs while already on the couch and starts summoning the rest of the room :)

Well, mister Saunders, the way your mind works is simply marvelous. Brilliant episode.

This one was great. I loved it when he started instantaneously getting transported to the couch and it just got better from there. Whale Dong and all that :)

So, there's been some alcohol being consumed in the making of this video, right?

And the award of worsd super power of all time goes too

*drum roll*

Bursting into flames apun being looked at... oh, well this is a close second.

Bwahaha, I love the LRR's, but this one was especially hilarious.

Also, James Stingers...pshaw...the whole episode is rife with James!!!

Glad I'm not the only one who went there.

I was like "NOOOOOOOOO!"

This is just one of those concepts that explains and explores why sketch comedy-and pre-recorded sketch comedy at that-can do some things that live improv can't. Whale Dong, people. Whale dong.

P.S. Escapist Forums, what do you have against the all-mighty em-dash?

Y'know, for a second, I thought LRR was going all serious and allegorical about the dangers of alcohol abuse. >_>

If you can't beat'em, join'em, right?

If I were him, I would've taken the furniture home. I mean free stuff which I believe aliens probably invested on HAS to be good quality :)

Mans, that was an awesome video! Great idea Paul!

that guy would have to move somewhere that won't let a drop of alcohol touch his body, but I can't think of where that could be.

I loved it, inspired work everyone.
