Community Project for Trenched. I need your salutes! LAST DAY!

Look, Giant Bomb... we've had an enormous amount of coverage for Double Fine's muscled men game, Trenched. It would be awesome for us as a community to pay back the Double Fine people with an awesome community video. How, you might ask? With a crazy fucking community trailer for the game, that's how.

So I'm asking you folks to contribute. Make a video of yourself, and put it up on youtube or give it to me directly(or however else you wanna do it.)

The video is open to you to do whatever you want... Doing saluting, a short skit, stand in front of green screen, cosplay... whatever!

I'll probably let everything glide for two weeks before putting together the final product (if this catches on, hopefully). Have fun, soldiers!

Maybe I can come up with something. Do we have a deadline of sorts?

Edited by Coombs

I'll see what i can do over the weekend, 
did something with all my capture gear a while ago, See if I can dig it out 
 
Should set up a bombing run for this weekend, 
See if we can get a bunch of GB people without the ability to capture in it

Posted by OmegaPirate

You can count on me  matey - will have to get some video equipment together, but have plenty of military gear to cobble something!

Posted by Sweep

I can't not do this.

Count me in, now I gotta think of something to do...

Posted by TurboMan

@dudeglove: Did you read it? Two or so weeks.... loose deadline, but don't wanna do it a month too late.

updated table

Posted by ImperiousRix

Alright.  I'll bite. 
I'll put something stupid together...

Posted by Winternet

Well, I don't promise anything. I'll think about it.

Posted by TurboMan

@Winternet: that's fine

currently having a hard time thinking up music for this...

thought about using "You're the best around" because of TNT... also thought about Power and the Night Trap theme song....

what's some songs that are epic and deal with the military?

Posted by FunExplosions

So, like... are we each making our own full trailers, or is everyone going to make a separate piece of the trailer which you are then going to glue together?

Posted by TurboMan

I made a goofy video for this!

I was thinking a bit more WW1 appropriate....

but thanks for recommending this crazy awesome song

I'd post the music I listened to during World War 1, but as always, it's just random video game music.
Posted by dietmango

You should make the trailer with a silent film grain effect.
 
I'd love to, but I have no knowledge of video stuff whatsoever. I have a camcorder but I don't know what the hell to do with it.

Sign me up video coming!

I'll try and come up with something.

Edited by Gutterkisser

If you want awesome WW1 music, some real salutin', marchin' and whistlin' shit, you gotta use Pack Up Your Troubles (In Your Old Kit Bag)-

Trust me, it's trenchy as hell. Good luck with the project, I'll see if I can come up with something.
Posted by Gutterkisser

There's jauntier versions around, and I'm apparently too stupid to get links working, but you get the idea.

Posted by Sparklykiss

Why did it take me this long to discover this? Count me in!

How crazy can we get here? And are we limited to one salute or what?
