    The insert coin bit was great. Nifty; that is my rating for this video after careful consideration and review so that I might meet the one hundred character requirement and earn another merit badge in the comedy coup competition.

    Hi Gayle. We felt instead of trying to explain everything in 90 seconds we would use this video as our invite to the event where we could hand out sell sheets, mix and mingle ect. Our goal has always been to make the video entertaining no matter what the mission was. So we chose, for better or worse to pitch the event more so than the show. As for Sarah, rest assured we are very nice to her. Because she scares us a little.

    i agree with all the commenters that it was very bold of you to take something so topical and wanna poke fun at it. you know, i can see CBC being hesitant about it, but i think thats exactly why your project is intriguing. i wouldnt shy away from it. in fact i think you should embrace it and be as cutting as possible in the coming weeks

    I appreciate someone trying to bring something that's an issue to the fore, but at the same time, are the CBC really going to want to poke fun at themselves THAT much? I like the idea, certainly, but I worry about whether they're going to want to develop it! Maybe CTV would!

    I am interested in the potential of this concept. It could get really cutting edge. We need to see glimpses of the CBC "stars" being propped up by these poor beleaguered producers. Given the recent controversy this comedy could get really important. It could help us Canadians wake up and realize that our beloved CBC is worth cleaning up and saving!

    Here's my pitch for The Cutbacks crew: procure the rights to the original Hockey Night in Canada theme, then use it until it makes you sick. Do terrible, sleazy things to do this and play out, over the course of your series, the most meta joke ever put to Canadian TV...except for that time The Kids in The Hall actually kidnapped those kids.

It still accomplishes everything necessary for the mission. But didn't pop and make me watch multiple times like previous videos did. But I'm sure you'll get back to that previous strength. Good luck.

    That was so funny! Great job on this one. This is one of the best Week 5 videos I have seen. I disagree with the "what was that about" comments -- hype doesn't have to be exposition! This got me more interested to keep up with your project.

    I thought it was great with all the jokes you threw in there. I felt you didn't really explain your concept to the media though, but you definitely did a great job in advertising your event, which sounds awesome. Have a fun night guys!

    I like you guys; this was funny! Great idea! I thought your video ended on a funny note too! So what did you choose for the party? I also think your tweets are funny. Good luck gang!

    Concept a little confusing since this really is sponsored by CBC but I guess we can make the leap.

    I really like the actors in your group, but don't feel this video did what it was supposed to. It was more like a teaser or extra footage from a previous video. I'm disappointed 'cause I liked your first video. I like the concept. Just not sure it would make a sitcom.

    Playing on the whole comedycoup theme hmm not very original. Pandering perhaps. Liked the hype for the joint party though. Great idea for all of you to engage. Did like the moustache though.

    I really like this idea and am glad to see it in the Top 55. I enjoyed the wink to the comedy coup, but I don't think this video did enough to hype it up. I feel like this was more of a teaser than anything. The sell-sheet was a bit too cluttered and hard to read.

    the green screen budget running out goes well with your theme but this gag has been done already in the competition by other contestants. sell sheet is cool I like the bulletin board style with all the info on it for you to read.

    I love the tongue-in-cheek humour going on here! the sound at the table was echo-ey, and some things were said so fast it was hard to catch (re everyone in the bed, maybe I just don't get that reference!) Anyway, I'm excited to see more at this Calgary event of yours!

    I like the part played by Sarah, "Why aren't I in this?" "Why am I not in this?" would be better grammar, hahaha. But, "Sorry I don't have a dick!" was perfect grammar.

    It is to bad, but I was hoping there was a little more hype to this video, it was funny but it did not convince me that your show is worth winning.

    I wish I lived in Calgary so I could come to your monster truck jam, wait...what? Do you guys even have licenses?

    The new video is hilarious. I truly love what you are doing and I hope everyone else can see the possibilities, and dig the humour going on. Good luck!

    That was pretty funny guys. Nice job on the hype video. A lot of other teams didn't really have any hype of their show itself, just the writers so this was fulfilling the requirement much better.

    I am smiling right now. I like you guys. You come up with funny stuff and I have laughed out loud. I like the way you thing too; i see that guy with his hat and blanket wrapped around him and I think they probably cut the hydro for lack of fund!!! :) Keep it up team!

    Watched all 5 weeks for the first time. Weeks 1,3,5 made me smile. I didn't like the week 2 presentation. I wanted the song to end so I could listen to what you needed to say. There are probably people at CBC who are saying, " This isn't a joking matter!" But I like the take you have on their problem.

    I also rewatched it a few times just for the tiny bottles part. I love all of this EXCEPT WHERE YOU FORGOT TO MENTION FICTIONS.

    Big ups on the great delivery asking who approved the insane expense of two airplane bottles of hooch. I rewatched that part a few times. Totally ha-worthy.

    I would like to offer a sincere apology to the fine folks at Fictions. Rest assured it was an oversight and we intend to make it up to you. Through social Media. and Drinks.

    Sorry to hear that there was an incident and people were injured. You have earned a pass, this time, on your FICTIONS oversight. I enjoyed the video. Good Luck.

    Probably the most entertaining week 5 video I have watched so far, I'm excited for this coming Friday. However in the spirit of teamwork I gotta say.... Dick move cutting out mention of the Fictions team. Seriously weak, guys... F - -
