    Weird video but it worked well with the tone of your show. It all can go random. Looking forward to what the team bring forth next! Go team!

    What a great way to bring a spotlight to "the little guys" who otherwise rarely get their well-deserved moment in the sun. Canada has so many great artists in music and theatre, and it's a fantastic idea to dedicate an entire series to recognizing them. :)

    It does seem like stuff the CDC would like, personally still not sure, you're vying for $500 K so guerilla style is not really the order of the day.

    Lots of work goes into making the attempt but at the end of the day it has to be funny for a number of weeks for enough people to get ratings and make money. I prefer others.

    This is an intriguing concept, but I'm not sure if you are taking it to it's full potential yet! Looking forward to see what else will come from this group though I find it worrisome they have to hide peoples alcohol to get votes!!!

    I appreciate your comment, Taylor. The ONLY reason we would hide people's drinks, is because we want an honest, sober and truthful response from them.

    Hi guys.
    If I write another 100 word comment I win three more votes, so it’s in your best interest to let me blather.
    Besides all the regular reasons I liked this episode, I especially liked the idea of you guys being forced to visit every province and territory eventually. Because all three of those territories are sure to be awful cold unloving tundra – and probably a really wonderful experience blah blah blah blah let’s just start a kickstarter Campaign to buy Dan some old-miner-esque long underwear and get Luke a comically large pouffy parka.
    Also, if you win I would like to be in as many minutes of show as votes I earned and gave to you. I’ll start an excel document.
    Sorry I have nothing cute to say to Rob, we don't know each other nearly as well. But if I remember correctly however, I really loved his 24 hour project sketch last year.

    Love this one. Your videos keep getting better -- proof that the best is yet to come. Great demonstration of how your concept is fresh, all the while maintaining a style and incorporating some great topical humour. The personalities are also on full display here. Can't wait to see what other shenanigans you gents have up your sleeves.

    I like this idea of showcasing Indie talent coast to coast. There is A LOT of talent here after seeing all the projects in this competition that deserve to be recognized. You got something here. If, for worse, you do not make it all the way I would like to see you guys continue this avenue be it a web series even.

    Cute sketch, and it showed more about the show--in an amusing way. I enjoyed some of the "Canadianisms," including the mix-up between CDC and CBC. I could just imagine the reception a group like that would receive if they actually brought a sick guy into the CBC for medical treatment. Funny!

    Out of your three videos this one is so far my favourite. I thought it was quite clever how you did the CDC/CBC joke. I'm a little worried that your concept of traveling across Canada would break the 500k budget, I wouldn't expect that much to go very far. Also it would have been great to give your optional posted pictures titles besides "on the road with the ganza team", it would have allowed you to possibly throw some more humour out there. The more jokes you guys can get into this competition the better. Good luck guys!

    Thanks for your feedback, Christina. It has been noted with your comments about the photo's. I'm glad you enjoyed the video, and the humour in it. We've already shot three seasons of Ganza (Not that I expect you to know this) on zero budget, so IF we were to win, $500,000 would be $500,000 more than we have now. Although, I suppose that would be true for all entries.

    I don't know if we should be joking about ebola. Is that not how people contract it? Or is laughter the best medicine? You guys should watch Patch Adams.
