A crate of saws for entertainment doesn't sound so bad.

Was that Gordon Freeman right before the airport got sold?

WAIT! I've used Nairobi's Airport many times and it's nothing like that!
There are more Africans around, and its not that cubey. It's at least 57% less cubey.

+ it takes much more time to get through -_-

Hearing Graham say "What about my Vase?" as that sprite was stupidly hilarious for me. I don't know why, but I needed to pause the video to stop laughing about the concept of a man with a fine moustache having no idea where his expensive vase was.

I'm not crazy.

Calumon: He's right.

This is why I take the train.
Or the boat.

And when did Jeff Foxworthy join LLR?

That was awesome. You guys should make a spin-off show similar to this!

I didn't really get it, but I just assumed that it was a facebook game, and that the jokes were about the games problems. Under those assumptions I enjoyed the video

James and Graham... you really sounded a lot alike a few times.
Maybe it's just me, though... ?

Good sketch, loved the artwork :D

Epic Win.

Love the times you animate things.

Ironically enough, the last animation you did was also about an airport...

I LOVED THIS. Damn you Kathleen for getting me hooked on this game from the last Commodore Hustle episode!

In all seriousness, you guys could put this on reddit and youtube and people would go nuts. It was really awesome!

Shirtless Santa Clause at the beginning made me laugh. Also whats with all the whites at and working at, an airport in Nairobi. I'll never understand the 8-bit world.

That. Was amazingly funny.

Having been briefly, ever so briefly, seriously addicted to Pocket Planes, THANKS TO KATHLEEN, this is exactly what I was thinking the whole time. I was seriously hoping you'd do something like this, and this turned out sheer awesome.

Hahaha...Man those games are addictive. Surprisingly funny short, guys, well done. Expected the writing to go well, but was a bit skeptical of the result. Way to blow expectations out of the water!

Really funny, and it looks so damn cute. I'm going to try out Pocket Planes now. Kathleen got me hooked on "Fairway Solitaire" which is an awesome game so I hope this is just as fun.

I can't wait for the Loading Time and Podcast about this episode. Though the latter will probably be in about a month judging on how often they come out.

That was completely over my head. Is pocket planes a game or something?
It's an iPod app. I highly recommend Tiny Towers. I haven't played Pocket Planes yet, but I've played TT long enough. Both apps are free though.

This Episode was an experiment - and it succeeded. I've been chuckling even though I don't know **** about the game the episode is refering to.

Also, I really like the voice acting of James, hope to hear him more often.

This might be funny.... if I even knew what this was based off of.... makes no sense though. So not funny.

My favorite video in a long, long time. Made me pour a couple extra hours into Pocket Planes too. I'm assuming I'm going to need London for an event in a couple weeks and I'm trying to re-organize my network to get as many routes to London as I can before then. Go Sky Chairs!

I don't know why but I love that Graham put on a subtle voice for his character.

Captcha: high-flyer, how apt.

God, this is hilarious if you're a Pocket Planes player. And I was *this* close to touching the monitor when I saw the coins flying by at the end.

Now, It's very funny and all. But I can't be the only person who's never played the game and has no idea what it's about...

I have a much better idea now but most of the references were still lost on me.

Alex's "SPRING BREAK!" line came out of nowhere, and almost had me guffawing at the office. I dunno why, it was just really, really funny to me. Also, subtly suave Graham is best Graham.

I feel like I'm going to regret actually looking into Pocket Planes as a result of this video, though. I just don't have time to be completely unproductive for long stretches right now :/

Funny but this is incredibly random and I don't get half of it.

EDIT: Apparently its an iPhone game, cool I guess, I don't have an iPhone. Could have used some context for the video :/

I love this episode of LRR!! Started playing Pocket Planes last weekend after hearing about it on LRR's "TGWP" podcast (I thought, "huh, that sounds fun"), and I am so hooked. Go Sky Chairs!
This episode was hilarious. "How about a flight to Jakarta?" "Close enough!" Hehe...

Maybe it's because I've never taken an airplane, or maybe because I don't know what pocket planes is a reference to, but I just didn't like this one.

Very clever LRR!

Ok I know it's way late, but I feel like it needs to be said, because it bugs me whenever I watch this HILAAAARIOUS video (not sarcastic)

it's pronounced "Gwang-joe" not "Gang zoo" I know it's odd, but that's Mandarin for you. "Zh" together makes a "j" sound.

Sorry for being "that guy" Love this LRR
