    Looks like a Wayne's World backstage pass in the filming of it. Bet these guys rock it out hard. Win this contest and you should ask Mike Meyers to guest star in it!

    Ok, I guess that you have been in a music store before. I still think that you don't have to go very far away from the characters that you'd find in a a music store to produce a comedy that engaged an audience. From the greenhorn, to the high functioning autistic gear head, to the frustrated shoulda been to the older guy who is only waiting for the day when he can retire and leave this bullshit behind...

    While nobody could possibly argue that this is certainly a creative approach to the challenge, I think the nature of the rap has the unfortunate side effect of highlighting the worst elements of your characters. Specifically, this show -- which originally looked like it could be a lot of fun -- now looks like it's aggressively unrelatable.

    The song is good, but the show seems like a generic Cheers just takes place in a music store. I think it can be good like It's always sunny in Philadelphia, but the characters seem too similar to them. Good Luck though.

    While I like that you guys went the extra mile to write a song and essentially frame this week's challenge as a music video, all of the hype you're bringing up doesn't really hype the show. It more hypes the other projects that you've done, and that makes the show concept of "Blackwater Music" less compelling. However, your videos are great, tons of production value, and if you guys did win, you'd be able to pull off something great.

As well as good ones but you put a small group of guys in a music shop and that's something I've never seen before. It sounds amazing.

    I' ll classify myself before I pass on judgement to this What ? Video ?
    I am to old for this. The music store is a great idea and full of what if's, but that video is too long without having content nor comedy. I would turn the channel real quick. I'm expressing my age and my dislike for some guy behaving so self centeredly Is that a word? The music store idea is great, the failure of a music store is tragic. I would like comedy ... the kid who comes in to buy his first harmonica and starts blowin wind ! or the guy who sings like Stompin Tom and needs a new mic.

    It'll be interesting to see what you come up with. Looks like you've got lots of votes but I'm unsure how accessible a show about a music store will be to non-musicians. Maybe a little too much product placement dropping the shop's name? I wonder if the CBC will make you go generic with the name. In any case, I hope songs are a regular part of it!

    I have to say that I liked the song. The whole thing was actually really well made. However, a lot of the fans seemed put off by your lack of modesty. Angering lots of people certainly is a quick way to get some publicity, but some of the comments for this week seem to suggest that you've cost yourself some votes with the direction of this video.

On the other hand, you're not that different from many sitcom that i already know, but you seem to have some good characters. I think you just need to go further with the characters. Good luck! by the way, sorry for my english, my first language is french! :)

    That being said, this video is extremely calculated. I'm shocked at how easily people took the bait. I'm looking at your page and you (currently) have 7 pages worth of comments saying that this video didn't do a good job hyping your project. Well done, guys. If this week is about results then you're winning.

You need to have confidence in this industry, and I appreciated that you went all out and tried to make your mark with this rap. I'll say this: I'd rather watching something controversial than something boring. So while this week's video didn't do it for me, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what you do next. Good luck with the Top 15!

    I'm reading a lot of comments that are turned off by the bragging. I thought it was funny and part of the character's voice. It worked for me because you're in an alley and, turns out, he has no place to sleep. There's something funny and sad about a rock star character who works at a music store and struggles to remind people that he has genitals and has sex.

    I know you guys have taken flak for the constant large penis jokes. I think it's heroic that you're committed to making them. It's like that scene in Rocky when he keeps getting up.

Far to many of the other groups seem to have been short on looking past the pilot to think about how the show could actually support a full season, let alone more than that.

I understand that when you refresh the page that generally you guys have been near the top for popularity/trending, but if you actually want to know where you stand in the group of 55 with your rating of 7.73, you are 7th.
