"Sheesh"

#1 Posted by Thompson820 (410 posts) -

Based on the comment by Jeff at 6:13 in episode 8 of the Persona 4 Endurance Run i'm wondering if anyone has ever actually counted up all the "Sheesh"s in P4. If not, I know what i'm going to be working on, i'm think a montage of every "Sheesh" with musical accompaniment.

I am Funky Student, and this is my favorite idea on the site.

Hopefully never, the Endurance Run will live on!
 
Great idea btw, I'd watch that video

Obviously a fraud, it doesn't rhyme.

I don't think it was actually said much in the game. I only remember it being said about 3 times by Chie and once by Yosuke or something, but I don't think counting each one would be worth doing because of this.

I know there were more than three instances, but I doubt the number is as high as some might be hoping for... Still, any excuse to revisit the endurance run..?

#8 Posted by yoshimitz707 (2450 posts) -

Sometimes I say sheesh.

#9 Posted by mutha3 (4985 posts) -

I doubt the video would last more then 20 seconds.

who cares
#10 Edited by Thompson820 (410 posts) -

That's a shame, my nostalgia tells me there were loads of instances of sheesh but you're probably right. Nevertheless, I will count them up for prosperity.

So I find myself spending Christmas making a video for Persona 4. Fun! The greatest misuse of After Effects conceivable? Yes.

That depends how long you can endure them.  
I'm sorry, I'll just let myself out. 
#12 Posted by Thompson820 (410 posts) -

The work continues, currently the video is pushing 2 minutes and i'm only up to episode 11 (I have to sit through the whole ER again at 4 times speed looking for Sheesh), I have the feeling that i'll have to go back and do much trimming. At the moment i'm only counting up the times when someone (Chie) in P4 says Sheesh in dialogue but i'm wondering if I should also count when Jeff and Vinny say Sheesh...  Opinions?

#13 Posted by TooWalrus (13137 posts) -

Also, using audio from the endurance run would be terrible, you'd barely hear the 'sheesh' and all you'd hear is Vinny and Jeff's giggling.

Oh man, I had a bunch of soundbites taken out of the game but the upload service I had them on deleted my account.  =(

#16 Posted by Cerogravian (344 posts) -
@rjayb89: I can barely remember now, but if you are referring to the ones this one was taken from (I vaguely remember that I took some at least from you?), then I might have at least some of them available... Sheesh...

Hah, yes, I remember naming them in all caps so it's possible that that one could have been mine.  I do still have the "Get Bent," "Pi pi pi pi pi," and "Aha, is this our chance!?" sound bites so I'm happy with what I've got for now.  I could upload them somewhere if someone here wants them but I'd prefer to upload them to a more reliable place so any suggestions would be great.

I was re-watching the Endurance Run a while ago and knew about this thread, so I decided to catalogue all the Sheesh's. I don't have video, but I recorded when they happened... I might have missed a few as I recently was playing Persona 4 and noticed that there was a Sheesh I had missed. I think I have most of them, though.

#23 Edited by Thompson820 (410 posts) -

This project was abandoned for a while, but it's back on. It's been a long time so i'll start from scratch and try to do it better than my old version, look for updates soon. Thanks for that list Qobot, that'll be immeasurably useful, you complete mad man.

Thanks a lot to Qodot for the list, made my life a whole lot easier.

@Thompson820: Really nice job.
#28 Posted by metalsnakezero (2288 posts) -

Sheesh, thats a nice video you got there.

#29 Posted by Brodehouse (9586 posts) -

In the original Japanese Chie didn't say Sheesh but "Cocksucker!"

#30 Posted by Qodot (105 posts) -

I just remembered about this and went to check it. 
 
 ... 
 
"The video is no longer available because the uploader has closed their YouTube account."  
 
Does anyone have the video stored somewhere? Thompson, perhaps you could upload it again, or put it on a file hosting site?

#31 Posted by Thompson820 (410 posts) -

So by a ridiculous series of events I lost my YouTube account, thanks Google. I've updated the above video with a re-upload on a new account; you can get a version of the video of your very own here, if you're crazy.

By the way: Yes, i'm fully, absolutely, painfully aware that there are plenty of sheesh's not in the video, if I find enough more to warrant a re-edit i'll make another version. (I'm currently re-watching the ER anyway)

#32 Edited by Qodot (105 posts) -

Thanks duder! 
 
EDIT: Just watched. It is magnificent.

#33 Posted by Qodot (105 posts) -

Hey, I'm running through the ER again and I'm astounded how many Sheesh's I missed the first time through. I'm up to episode 50 and I've already found 10 more. Are you interested in updating the video with a more complete list? If so, when I'm finished, I'll post an updated Sheesh count.

I thought that was a reference to Admiral Briggs in BLOPS2 but then realized this post was a year and a half old.

Sure, send me the list whenever and I'll get on it, I still have the original project files.

Sheesh v2 is set free! Thanks for the list work fellas.

In case anybody is wondering I decided to make myself one rule on this: The sheesh must be from the game itself, Jeff or Vinny saying sheesh does not count. The only exception is when a text only sheesh is vocalized by either Jeff or Vinny.

For those interested in the process here are a couple of screenshots.

The sheesh counter pre-comp in After Effects, the episode counter had it's own pre-comp which looks very similar.
The Premiere edit.

Sheesh.

Also: sheesh, I feel like such a jerk for saying it but... The "Sheesh" counter on the bottom-right says "Sheeses" instead of "Sheeshes".

Sheeses is our lord and savior, he died so that we may express our exasperation.

(Side note, in writing this I looked up "sheesh" and it is in fact a shortening of "Jesus")

I suspected as much. It gives a whole new meaning to the word sheesh-kebab.
