You've heard all the talk about homemade mayonnaise medigel on the bombcasts, you've seen the thread for the VinnCo. Mark III Maglift System shirt design, by now it's blatantly clear that the direction the GOTY vids should go should just be, like, a series of dodgy infomercials starring Bootleg Vinny flogging his latest contraptions, right?

Look, I know they sort of did something similar in tone with two previous videos you might have seen...

...but that was, like, four years ago, and they've come a long way since. Plus they kind of complained about how how long it took them to write the CBS parodies last year, so I'm (un)officially submitting my totally-unasked-for fan suggestion.

Listen: Vinny's already spent several hours drawing us into his imaginary world of Vinn Co. Innovations. It's time to fully realize that dream.

Either that or just an endless David Lynch fever dream of a topless Johnny V. twerking on a duct-tape-over-the-mouth-Brad-strapped-to-a-chair. I'd buy it.

Genius! I like it. Vinnco needs to get some more publicity in the larger market.

agreed!

In light of the recent Bridge Builder Simulator vid and the Loads Our Last Souls you're goddamn right I'm resurrecting this thread.

I only buy VinnCo products for my househould. I've had several, near life threatening, encounters with my new VinnCo toaster, but I say hey! At least I'm living life to the limit!

Still the greatest duders in the history of the internet.

Don't believe the hype. I bought a washing machine from VinnCo and it did not, I repeat DID NOT pull me into an alternate dimension where the laws of physics do not apply and everyone has sweet black tees. I want my goddamn money back.

Oh my god, that iphone app commercial video was the most beautiful thing Ive ever seen.

Looking forward to the VinnCo™ Innovator of the Year Award category, at least.

My dream is for VInnCo to over throw google and become the next skynet, and we will then all welcome our new overlord Vinny!

fuck your first offer, this sounds more appealing!

Is VinnCo. hiring? I think I could create crazy, physic breaking machines of the future.

#14 Posted by afabs515 (1019 posts) -

Anyone on this site who starts a business should name it VinnCo and get Vinny as the mascot. I'd throw my money at that business.

I thought it was VinCo. These are the kinds of details we need to figure out before show time.

@aceofspudz: I can register for a live webinar demo of this ambiguous "synergy" thing, though.

www.vinnco.com is so inscrutable I thought it was a high-concept parody:

http://www.vinnco.com/vinncostory.html

3. How does it work?

vinnco is a deals site with a difference. Our model is designed so that every time a deal is purchased we reward:

1. The merchant (business) providing the deal;

2. The vinnco member who introduced the merchant to vinnco;

3. The vinnco member who actually buys the deal; and

4. The wider community

Sounds like some kind of multi-level marketing scheme. Kinda appropriate, I guess.

I'd totally buy a VinnCo themed game.

#20 Posted by Zaccheus (1792 posts) -

VinnCo marketing video GOTY sounds like a great idea.

#21 Posted by Tajasaurus (843 posts) -

I think this is an important idea. Having the crew be scientists, manufacturers, the business dudes behind it all and also the customers are all things I would love to see.

I've been using the VinnCo VR headset (the premium one with the electrical tape strap) and it's great! People were worried about it causing memory loss but I'm a happy customer!

And it's great! People were worried about it causing memory loss but I haven't noticed anything wrong with it.

Sounds like a plan!

I just moved my refrigerator (straight through the roof...but still the magnets worked!) thanks to VinnCo! Huge fan! (Also could VinnCo. get on a blueprint for a HUGE fan?)

Oh god that just gave me flashbacks to my old job where I had to look at like, a million different venture capitalists' websites. Those people are the weirdest

#34 Posted by EXTomar (4687 posts) -

Lets do a little jamming: What would the theme for VinnCo the game be? Would it be more like The Incredible Machine physics based puzzle thing? Or is it more like an adventure game?

#35 Posted by BaneFireLord (2925 posts) -

@extomar: Nah, it'd be a cheap TF2 knockoff. The only character model is a cartoon Vinny wearing different hats.

I fully support BradINC, not this vinco crp.

If I invest two grand in Vinnco, what milestone is reached? Which capitol ships do i actually get to own?

Presumably only the Mexican knockoffs, like the El Bomba Grande, or the S.S. Vincenzo.

My thoughts were either nature documentary or hostage situation....

But i really like this idea too!!
