So I was just about to watch the trailer for the new Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 (Hehehe. I still think that's a funny name) trailer, when suddenly instead of the trailer, a video of Jeff beatboxing plays. I go, "Buh?" and try to click the video to pause it. That leads my browser to open up another window leading to this page of the site. As I watch the rest of the 30-something second video, the final moment seem to be promoting some sort of upcoming live event:
 
Whiskey Media: The Big Live Live Show: Live on September 9th, 10AM.
 
I keep trying to watch other stuff on the site, but the teaser/promotional video thingy won't appear again. Did anyone else see this thing or am I just going crazy?
 
[EDIT 2]
Here is the list of all promos thus far:

  • Jeff showing us his talent
  • Jeff beatboxing
  • Drew licking his elbow
  • Ana and Joey rocking out
  • Ted reading Vinny's mind
  • Ryan juggling
  • Ryan taking his finger off
  • Alex drumming
  • Brad
  • Dave with pants
  • Will putting his foot behind his head
  • Tony reading a comic book with his eyes closed
  • Greg reciting the intro to Samurai Shodown II
It's almost time! Tune in this Thursday from 10AM PST all the way into the night for Whiskey Media's The Big Live Live Show: Live! Be there!

I came here searching for a thread on that, it surprised me too.

So are we finally getting GiantBomb's equivalent to On The Spot? Cause I would be super fucking psyched for that.

Um, nothing this there

#5 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1688 posts) -

Duder! Just had this happen to me on the Star Wars The Old Republic space combat video, but instead of Jeff I got Drew licking his elbow, seriously. Also, I totally can't get it to show up again either >=O

Variety show with elbow licking and shirtless daves!!!!!

#7 Posted by Peredur (34 posts) -

I saw one too, but it was of a dumbfounded man I didn't recognize with Vinny saying, "Whenever you're ready." It ended with a splash for the Giant Bomb: Big Live Live Show Live. I also was unable to make it pop up again.

#8 Edited by CaptainTightPants (2830 posts) -

I just got it during the Diablo 3 related video, there was a dude playing a guitar and a chick wearing a portal 2 shirt with Vinny interrupting them though. Seems they made different videos.

#9 Edited by Teptom (2074 posts) -

I also got Drew licking his elbow.  
 
Dave did tweet that he dropped some mystery on here, so I guess that was it.

#10 Posted by Vorbis (2763 posts) -

As Dave Snider said on twitter.
 

 About to drop some mystery onto @giantbomb. 

#11 Posted by zolloz89 (273 posts) -

maybe they'll get some guests for it. ideally rich gallup.

#12 Posted by Kentobi (102 posts) -

Dave tweeted about something 'mysterious' about an hour ago, and I'm sure this was it.  I saw it on the Lara Croft quick look, but of course, it won't play again.  Props to the WM guys; that's a really neat trick.

#13 Posted by Steve_C (1768 posts) -

From Dave's twitter:
 
"About to drop some mystery onto @ giantbomb."
 
I'm guessing this is it. Some viral ad thing. I'm curious to see what this amounts to. Exciting times.

#14 Posted by Falconer (1812 posts) -

I hope it's not a weekly show, cause that's early and half the user base probably has school/work (like me).

#15 Posted by T0mF5 (937 posts) -

This must be what Dave was talking about on his Twitter.

#16 Posted by CastroCasper (1393 posts) -

Woah, this is kinda cool and scary at the same time.

#17 Posted by HallwayGiant (168 posts) -

Yep just saw it, seems like theirs a few versions of the promo featuring various Whiskey Media folks too.

 Good ol  photo evidence. :)
#18 Edited by AlwaysBeClothing (1587 posts) -

I wish it would show before more videos than one.  I want to see the others now.
 
If everyone can keep confirming their videos I can help people see more.
 
So Far I have Drew licking his elbow, Jeff's Talent, Jeff's bigger talent.
Please post if yours is different.

 Jeff Robot


 Drew has a clean tongue.
#19 Posted by Steve_C (1768 posts) -

Yeah, I just loaded up the first video I could and it popped up. Must play for each user one time only as soon as they watch their next video.

#20 Posted by FengShuiGod (1516 posts) -

What is this I don't even...

#21 Edited by Dany (8018 posts) -

10 AM Pacific, thats 12 local.Hopefully they archive those

#22 Posted by Kieran_Smith5 (169 posts) -

I got the Drew licking his elbow bit and thought it was hilarious.  Can't wait until the Ninth now.  This must be their mysterious announcment.   I clicked on the Lara Croft  quick look and was blown away that it was 30 seconds long.

I can't imagine they wouldn't be archived.
#24 Posted by Teptom (2074 posts) -

I go to college two days a week and that day is one of them. Damn.

#25 Posted by Matthew (2141 posts) -

Dude.  If this is what is a small sample of whats waiting for me beyond those subscription doors, I'll have to send a perfume laden letter to those boys along with a check for several million pennies.

 Just went looking for it to happen and on the first try I got this exact one.

Just got that one, with Ana and (Sadly not sure who the fellow is) block jamming for a short bit. I think we all get to see only one each? Maybe one a day or something similar, we shall see.

Nah, this won't be something you pay for.

   ruh oh? elbow licking good
#30 Posted by Vorbis (2763 posts) -

How do you know?
#32 Posted by Impossibilium (680 posts) -

Either this is a live weekly show - which is great (but should be done at the old On The Spot time) or it's one of those massive gaming parties in their haunted cellar bar similar to those that Gamespot used to throw (as in GameSpot After hours) when Midnight Brown performed.
 
Go, Go Vietnam!

#33 Posted by Kentobi (102 posts) -

Dave also said that the subscription service would launch in September, so maybe this is when they'll announce it?  Or maybe it'll be the first 'subscription-only' thing?

#34 Posted by 234r2we232 (3175 posts) -

That's the date when the Cloverfield monster attacks, right?

#35 Posted by OllyOxenFree (5005 posts) -

Aww if only there was some way to see all of the "secret" videos!

#36 Posted by fresh2deafbill (914 posts) -

they won't get many viewers for this. airing it at 10am pacific time on a THURSDAY is a very strange choice. everyone will either be at work or school

#37 Posted by Gnome (148 posts) -

Just saw the Drew one while going through the P4 endurance run, so it doesnt seem to matter when the video was posted

#38 Edited by RE_Player1 (7943 posts) -

I just watched a trailer for DC universe online and I saw Drew licking his elbow... I'm so pumped!!! Also I hope they archive the shows, I love the live premise but sometimes I can't dedicate to a time.  
 
Also I hope this isn't subscription only. 

#39 Posted by Cyklone (28 posts) -

Can't wait for what I think will be a live show.  that is live. Also it looks like it'll be big. 

So how many different ones have people seen? One with Jeff, one with the two, one with drew, and one with dave? so...4?

#40 Edited by Steve_C (1768 posts) -

I was able to see a second one. I'm currently using firefox (which I saw the first on).  Here's how:

  1. I logged out (probably not needed)
  2. Switched over to internet explorer whcih I don't use (or any other browser will work I presume) and went on GB.
  3. Didn't bother to sign in and loaded up a video.
  4. ???
  5. Profit!
 
...annnnd I just saw a third one (though it was the first one I saw with the guitar) using Chrome.

Common sense. When Dave and other Whiskey Staff have made it clear that they don't want to alienate non-subscribers by denying them important content, why would they then show a commercial for a live show to everyone, but then later announce that only subscribing members get to be part of the action? This will obviously be available to everyone on the site.
#43 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2830 posts) -

10am is impossible for me, of course they are going to archive them but a later time would have been great :3 
So do you only get one of the secret videos? I haven't seen any other but the one with Anna (maybe?)  and the dude playing guitar(Sorry i don't know the name couldn't get a good look at him)

#44 Edited by Grissefar (2905 posts) -

Clear out your cookies to see them all :P
 
So far I have seen:
 
Drew Elbow
Chad Mindread
Ana Guitar
Jeff Beatbox
Jeff Drop Pants

#45 Edited by Tearhead (2382 posts) -

This is so exciting! This has to be an On The Spot kind of thing, right? Also since this is Giant Bomb I can only assume it won't be just about video games.

Agreed. I don't think this is the kind of thing they would work into the subscription model. I guess we'll have to wait and see though. Man this is exciting!
#47 Posted by RipTheVeins (1608 posts) -

I got one of Vinny (behind the camera) interviewing someone, who I haven't seen in any video from any of the other Whiskey sites. 

#48 Posted by Jadeskye (4392 posts) -

dude yes i'm way into this!

#49 Posted by Steve_C (1768 posts) -

Thinking about it, this must've been why Jeff and that have been exploring streaming technology.

The banjo video is my favorite.
