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!

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

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.

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)

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!
