They're on a mission to save the world, but first, they'll need to be inconspicuous. Which member of the Giant Bomb crew works best in each costume?

I really like that Brad has always been chosen as the Priest so far. But how can Vinny not be a Bicycle cop?! Shame on you guys. :P

Vinny is a gruff Italian from New York/Jersey. He's a frickin' fireman.

This seems like a good GOTY idea...

I think Brad has to be the nurse. Vinny would look fitting as a priest. Patrick in oversized firefighter garments looks apt for some reason, and Jeff is the alleged owner of www.guard.bike so he has to be the bicycle cop.

It all works out.

Father Vinny is of course part of a Mafia money laundering scheme involving church donations and the income from those wood bracelets with saints on them.

My pick is Jeff as a bicycle cop, Vinny as a fireman, Brad as a nurse (or murse), and Patrick as a priest. If these are not your picks you're wrong; end of discussion.

#7 Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1807 posts) -

Brad has can grow an amazing Selleck stache. That makes him easy choice for the cop.

I'm glad to see almost no one agrees with me.

#9 Posted by TrafalgarLaw (1118 posts) -

Jeff the priest.

@exiledastronaut: Because recently Jeff has been very jaded, harsh and critical of the market as a whole

I mean, it seems pretty obvious to me.

  • Jeff because I've already mentioned
  • Vinny cause he's benevolent
  • Brad's lighthearted
  • And Patrick stands for all that is right in video games

mhm mhm

This is important research.

#12 Posted by Milkman (16782 posts) -

Jeff the Bicycle Cop

Vinny the Fireman

Brad the Priest

Patrick the Nurse.

I can't explain any of these choices but as soon as I looked at the list, I knew them instantly.

I accidentally made Jeff and Brad both be the nurse.

#14 Edited by DinosaurCanada (103 posts) -

Jeff is the Priest because I don't know, Brad has already proven himself as a decent detective so why not bicycle cop (plus 'stache), Vinny kind of looks like a porn Fireman, and Patrick is the nurse because that was the only one left, although I'm a tad iffy on that one because of the Outlast Quick Look.

Jeff the Nurse

Vinny the Priest

Brad the Fireman

Patrick the bicycle cop

Pretty good premise for a thread.

#16 Posted by Giantstalker (1647 posts) -

Jeff would make a great priest, think of the kind of firepower he'd hide under those vestments

#17 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5479 posts) -

The only sensible choices in my opinion.

Jeff the Nurse

Vinny the fireman

Brad the priest

Patrick the Bicycle cop

Great thread by the way.

#18 Posted by HurricaneIvan29 (582 posts) -

No, that'd actually hold some ground... it's very common for nurses to become frantic and flustered when we bring in critical patients. They like the relaxed, time to think atmosphere.

#19 Posted by Aegon (5600 posts) -

Wait, why is this happening?

#20 Posted by Mikemcn (6988 posts) -

Jeff is obviously the bike cop. I knew that would be the popular answer.

#21 Posted by TheHT (11241 posts) -

Jeff's the super intense bike cop, Vinny's the fireman that always looks like he just stepped out of burning building, Brad's the nurse who takes his role too seriously and tries to look after all the bad guys, Patrick's the over-eager young priest that seems to really like calling people "son".

#22 Posted by Dalai (7028 posts) -

Brad has to be a nurse... a sexy lady nurse. Also, Jeff would be the fireman who starts fires just for fun.

Personally, I swapped Vinny and Brad, but your version is fine with me as well.

C'mon, Jeff as a nurse (presumably in drag) and Patrick as bicycle cop are just obviously the right answers.

As the creator of this exciting/completely unnecessary original content, here were my choices while I was drinking at the bar.

Jeff the Nurse

Vinny the Fireman

Brad the Priest

Patrick the Bicycle Cop

Alex the Accountant

I love that alex only gets one option.

I could definitely see that as well. The only thing bothering me is stark lack of drew in on the action. I mean, we've always speculated he was an undercover agent waiting to be activated. He'd probably be the most qualified for the mission!

#28 Posted by Rejizzle (306 posts) -

Vinny would bring joy to all his patients as a nurse, Jeff would turn his sirens into a crazy rap beat as a fireman, Brad would grow a sweet 'stache as a bicycle cop, and Patrick just kinda looks like a priest to me.

#29 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4496 posts) -

No Drew the Pilot option? What is this madness?

#30 Posted by YI_Orange (1147 posts) -

Fireman Vinny is the most agreed upon. All is well.

#31 Posted by CreepingDeath0 (176 posts) -

Vinny has to be the priest. Think of all the black he wears!

Likewise, how can anyone suggest anything other than Brad as a fireman? Have you all forgotten safety Brad? It's the logical next step.

Jeff as a pissed off bike cop just worked so well in my mind. Those lycra shorts!

That leaves Patrick as the nurse. I guess he is no stranger to a bit of blood thanks to all the spookin!

#32 Edited by pyromagnestir (4324 posts) -

Are we talking about a male nurse costume or lady nurse costume?

I voted when I assumed we were talking lady nurse, but if we're going male nurse that changes things...

#33 Posted by Fredchuckdave (5467 posts) -

@bisonhero: I think when anyone thinks of Vinny they look through rose-colored glasses so it doesn't matter what he is; Brad definitely fits as a Fireman visually though.

#34 Posted by Icicle7x3 (1180 posts) -

Jeff the Priest

Vinny the Fireman

Brad the Nurse

Patrick the Bicycle Cop

#35 Posted by mjk0104 (205 posts) -

Brad's obviously the Fireman, I want Jeff in the priest outfit (And not just because he does the best creeper voice), Patrick grows his hair back out and dons the goofy bike cop, and if one of them had to be an actual nurse, I'd go for Vinny, plus he'd look great in one of those little hats...

@babychoochoo: Drew does not need a costume, dude went to the DMZ on North Korea using a Foreigner t-shirt and came back to tell the story! Drew is the backup plan to save the day!

I wouldn't call it rose-coloured glasses, because that implies an element of nostalgia. Vinny continues to be a positive, reasonable dude, which is why he is generally everyone's favourite for every conceivable popularity poll. Also, as someone else above points out, Vinny as priest just makes sense given how much black Vinny already wears.

Jeff has to be the bike cop the takes his job way too seriously.

#40 Posted by WMoyer83 (643 posts) -

Bike cop like bicycle cop or motorcycle cop

because jeff should be a bicycle cop just for the compression shorts alone

#41 Edited by burgavo (255 posts) -

Probably controversial but here goes:

Jeff the fireman: Just cause I imagine Jeff having a life long fascination with burning stuff and stuff being on fire in general, and this would allow him to be nearer to the object of his desire/fascination.

Vinny the Bicycle cop: Cause I imagine Bicyclecops to not be able to actually maintain an air of authority and end up trying to be everybody's friend and just giving you a warning instead of a ticket, their just too nice to be "real" cops.

Brad (male)nurse: Partially for his fascination with weird obscure diseases and horrifying conditions, and partly cause I just think he could pull off the whole scrubs look

Patrick the priest: thinking of patrick with his current look in a priests outfit talking to you in a soft calming voice calling you my son makes me chuckle, in my mind for some reason he's wearing glasses.

Edit: Oh and Alex would be the whino who lives in the alley around the corner

#42 Posted by CorruptedEvil (3240 posts) -

Jeff the Bicycle Cop, Brad the Bicycle Cop, Vinny the Bicycle Cop and Alex the Tax Accountant.

#43 Posted by HatKing (5945 posts) -

Vinny can't be a fireman, I think he said his dad was a fireman. That's a connection. It's supposed to be inconspicuous. He's a bike cop. He looks like a cop.
