It's okay, but Bill Gates jokes haven't been funny for YEARS. Especially since, you know, he's basically not in charge of anything at Microsoft anymore and pretty much does fulltime charity work.

Wilson!!! The hamsters had babies this time...

It was good, but only good I'm afraid. Best laugh was at the "It would be gay", which I know I shouldn't be laughing at.

Yeh, wasn't to bad, impressive that you did absolutly everything yourself tbh.

The gay joke was the peak. Added humor to the fact that Microsoft is a pile of metaphorical gay on the big steel fence that is the modern gaming world.

Keep it up!

I think Chris just needs more focus to what he's doing. Both the Microsoft Attack and the Perfume ad could have been full length episodes, but they seemed rushed together.

The reason the Jack Thompson (and the Voice Man) episode worked so well was they had solid form, well timed jokes and a good punchline.

I'd humbly suggest a little more brainstorming before you jump behind the camera, get everything out of the joke that you can.

For instance, in the Perfume Ad, where he thrusts his arm at the audience, you can see his armpit, so... exaggerate it by having a huge ball of hair there.

"Staring Chris Slack"? Oh noes!

Good episode, though the fatality+1 thing was a good spoof, it dragged on just a bit too long. The rest is, as with everything you guys make lately, pretty damn good.

(sigh) Really? How can Escapist put some of the highest quality online vids I've ever seen on the internet next to such weak minded drek. This was, at best, a really really pathetic youtube video. Perhaps the Escapist should try broadening it's horizens or De-rez should try writing a funny joke

I don't know. Maybe I just don't get the whole de-rez thing. This is probably the 3rd or 4th vid of theirs I've seen and I didn't laugh or chuckle at any of them.

The whole black and white sequence, "Xbox Fit", was just lame. Then the credits rolled and I was without laughter.

This was pretty good, for what it was. It could have been longer, though, with a bit more substance.

Not a funny episode, but it was entertaining.
I thought that the camera work, narration and editing were good.

"Yes it would be gay, but we at Microsoft are not homophobic"

If I weren't in the office I would have lol'd so hard.

I also enjoyed ads, overall this video is really great, way better than the guide to cool, and less phoned it than moments in Yahtzee's biggest fan.

I rate it ex aequo with the previous episode.

What the hell dude.

You had Microsofts endless list of screw ups to tear into, and you made one gay joke??

But what a great joke! If your audience is a about 5 years old.

The last few were gold, but this one was sort of a let-down. The cuts to all of the ads and the interview didn't establish a central character, so it felt like randomness just for the sake of it. The gay joke and the "Fuck Microsoft" definitely got a laugh, though.

Once again it started out a 4/5 then slowly declined to a 2.5/5. If he would just focus on one theme whether it was making fun of MS or Pro Gamers then it would have been great.

It wasn't really funny, but that's not why I love de-rez. ZP & Unforgotten Realms are under so much pressure to be funny that they're always the same, and therefore lose their entertainmenting-ness. I'm always interested to see what Chris is gonna do next because, even if it ain't hilarious, it's always amusing on some level.

This was funny but I think there was a bit of a missed opportunity considering all the xbox jokes you could have made. Still, "The only injury you'll receive is to your wallet" made me lmao.

Really? the deadpan commercial hat me in stitches. The skit on pro-gamers worked well too. While the perfume commercial didn't work quite as well (the montage with tthe Xbox fit seemed to have a few unnecessary seconds of footage (around 3:06), the overall video was altogether well done in a deadpan sort of way. This one is certainly joining my list of deRez favourites.


Why didn't everyone take as fondly to it?

I enjoyed this one as well. Perhaps the people who didn't laugh just didn't understand some of the jokes?
