All right, so I'm a video editor by day and I've had some downtime late in the afternoon recently, so I decided to mess around with some Whiskey Media videos just for fun. They're a treasure trove of dumb stuff, so here's what ended up coming out. (Spoiler: lots of dancing and weirdness.) It's a little Giant Bomb heavy cause those videos tend to be the nuttiest. Go figure! Enjoy!     

 
Update 5/25/11: Totally honored to be included in the new homepage community section. Glad they (and so many of you) enjoyed it!

Okay the editing is fantastic, I still find it hard to watch with the music though.

Conmsidering the video is edited to the music it'd be pretty fucking hard to change.

@drhans: Great job, man. Not keen on the actual tune, but that is crazily well done.

really what the fuck is that music ? sorry dude, video's real eerie


Edit: however after cringing my way though that, i noticed your editing skills and how you used each and every lick and beat to go along with fitting scenery and video bits, so good effort.

The song is "Dancingbox" by Modeselektor (German group).  Not sure what's so difficult about it. TTC rapping (French rap group), some beats and really cool vocal editing, like... if it's not your thing, that's cool, of course, but geez.

I liked it. Those other dudes are just being rude. I thought the music matched up well with how you edited it. It was kind of catchy too. Good job.

yeah, really great effort.  one of the best edited videos i've seen in a long while.

edit:  just re-read your original post and saw that you're a video editor by trade.  so, you cheated, but also, excellent work.

Sorry, but I could only watch about 10 seconds of it before I wanted to pick up the nearest sharp thin object and ram it into my ear drums just to make the noise I was hearing stop. Can't comment on the video editing.

The music is weird, but it's not much weirder than half of the stuff Midnight Brown does. If Jeff had made that song, everyone would be loving it. I don't know what everyone is complaining about.

Either way, it's a great, well edited video.

Pretty much my feelings. The GB community is filled with self-loathing and infighting. The Screened, Tested, and Comic Vine communities are very different.

Great video by the way. I'm actually kind of a fan of that music.

I highly recommend Modeselektor to anyone who is into dance music, that track comes from a fantastic album, and its not all French techno rap :p

Awesome. I was entertained right up until the Willing off at the end.


Then I cracked up.

Also: the music is perfect for it. I don't know if you noticed, but the video is insane. The choice of words from the people who "couldn't watch it" because of the music is indicative of their thought processes.

Great job. People complaining about the music are pathetic. I think it totally fits for what you were doing.

People are allowed to not like the music, and pointing it out seems worth posting when the video's been put up for comments... It doesn't instantly mean they're being spiteful and rude.

Anyway, I thought the video was good. I too wasn't very keen on the music either, but when it worked, it worked perfectly (ie. the part with Will and the shake weight). Brought back some good memories! Well done.
