Week #6 The Flip HumanTown

Instead of exploring HumanTown through connecting characters/stories. Our ‘Flip' is to explore HumanTown through ads, infomercials and other TV stereotypes. Learn about HumanTown’s business sector through a Melcorp training video, or appreciate the city landfill through a ‘Recyclops' infomercial. Watching an episode is like watching the TV channel of a fictitious bizarre city for half an hour.

Unfortunately cut due to time, Stanton Wilburn has been quoted saying: "Although I cannot confirm or deny the extent of Melcorp’s success, I can say with confidence, that I’ve been offered a monetary amount to appear in this video". Thankfully we didn't pay him a dime

Ki Kwiatkowski of HumanTown (Left) and Dylan Innes of Heir Heads (Right) are both taken aback when asked to show their genitalia by a rowdy audience member. Within moments they came to their senses and graciously obliged.

    Great job and congrats on the top 15! The production value is great, and I think you did a good job flipping it - seems it would be challenging since your show is so deliberately random

    Hey Humantown! Congrats on getting into the top 15!! You guys are great and I love the concept behind Humantown. Your flip didn't really seem like a flip, more like a sketch from the show, but it was hilarious anyway!

    One thing I love about this flip is that when I think "HUMANTOWN" I think the exact opposite of a staid corporate recruitment video. This is pretty much the exact opposite of what anyone should expect from you Humans.

    Keep up the great work, I love what I've seen so far.

    I like this kind of video , feels like a publicity.
    Way too many similarities in the office. it's really ''beige'' everything , the decor, clothing.
    Good luck on the competition

    I loved this, it's just hilarious, and very well done. I had to watch it several times to catch everything, as there's so much in it. So far you're my favourites, good luck !

    Hey guys! Congratulations on making the top 15 and best of luck from here on out, it's now out of the our hands as fans over here. I liked this flipit as it showed a different side of you guys, your humour and acting. I didn't really see how it was a complete flipit idea as your show is based on the premise of sketch's and skits and it looked as though this could actually fit right into your original idea as a sketch show. The characters were funny and unique though! When I was watching it some of the expressions and statements reminded me of the guys in "40 year old virgin" and just that dorky nerd humour. I enjoyed it!

    Another great job guys. Quick question though: Melcorp isn't a front from Melchion, Daemon Lord of the Abyss is it? #SaveLiam

    Let's hope you do not have to flip your original idea too much as this Flip-It is much too generic and unoriginal. However, this video is well done.

    Congratulations on making it to the Top 15, that's really awesome and well deserved! By the way, is there a email address where I can send my resume to Melcorp? Melcorp looks like the perfect place to do a job and to work and to gain employment and stuff.

    First video I have watched for Le Flip. I definitely like what HumanTown is all about compared to THIS corporate selling out trash. This good-humoured, well done video of corporate selling out trash mind you. Job done guys.

    AWESOME video for this weeks challenge! My favorite so far, so I felt compelled to comment. Great idea for the 'Flip' and I found it SUPER funny, although I do still like the original more. I know this group is all dudes, which is cool, but I would like to see more women represented in the show.
