- Pablo Francisco Little Tortilla Boy Trailer
Yay another comedy trailer!
Ok children, gather round and I'll tell you a story. One Saturday (I think it was a Saturday) when I was up at about 1:00 in the morning, a friend sent me a Pablo Francisco stand up comedy skit. I couldn't stop laughing. Then comes along "Movie Announcer" voice. I died laughing. He then proceeded to act out the Little Tortilla Boy trailer. The gears in the head turned from there.
Seriously though, this idea spawned from an incredibly funny stand up skit by Pablo Francisco, sleep deficiency, and 2 weeks of neglected homework. I looked over at my anime collection to see what would best fit this. As is normal for my sad little mind, I first looked at Eva. I then realized that I would NOT do another Eva video. I've said that in every video before this but it just keeps happening. (Don't worry, Eva finds its way in here again.)
A few things for everyone. Is this video as good as Advance Wars 3? I don't know. I personally don't think so, but everyone I've shown it to here in my dorm has laughed harder during it then AW3. So I guess you'll have to determine that for yourself ^_^
If you look at the CD case in the middle of the video, there is indeed a reference to Evangelion: ReDeath. If you have seen it, you should know exactly what I'm talking about. If you have not seen it, you need to attend a convention so that you can see it, it's worth the price of admission to a con to see this video if they are showing it. Maybe not worth the hotel bill, but at least con admission.
Another reason I made this trailer was for an excuse to yet again put aside my Otakon 2005 video I'm working on. I still have 6-7 months....
The local download is an MPEG-1, look for an XviD and MPEG-2 through indirect links soon.
Of course, some of the stuff on the green screen are from Homestar Runner, it was just too funny to pass up ^_^
In the words of Mr. Pilkington, and I quote, "Wow, this video gives me hope.... what kind I'm not at liberty to say."
Special Thanks to:
Teucros and Dizzy D for the CD Case
The Maan, M-Wall, and my whole dorm suite for pre-watching the video (many, many times)
Well, with that, I'll leave you with the video. Enjoy ^_^
I actually got to see Pablo perform live! He came to town this week (Feb 2005) and I had to go see him. He performed Little Tortilla Boy too!
I got this quick comment recently. "Hilarious idea (I have seen the comedian also) but man, what an result! Maybe I'm bit too hard on this, but it was quite ugly.. The tortillas of yours, come on! Use more imagination.. Or more tears, blood and swet. This coul have been marvelous video, but like this, it's just a two stars video. Sorries." It's nice to know at least one of the thousands of comments I get on this video are so negative =)
