Happiness is:

watching this bit of utter brilliance over … and over … and over … and over …

I have Ann Marie to thank for sending it to me. She informed me: It took 8 days of rehearsal and 1 take.

I love every single person involved in that project.

    We discovered it at work about a week ago, and ever since it’s become our “pick me up” whenever someone gets harried or depressed. I defy anyone to watch it and not end up with a big, goofy smile on their face.

    This is one of my favorite new internet video things floating aorund. My pal Lindsay knows these guys and he says they’re fabulously insane.

    I LOVE this video! LOVE it!!!!

    Alex – the guy in the pink shirt with the vest reminds me of Mitchell! Especially when his back is to the camera and he suddenly whips his head around to face us – like a total ASSHOLE. Mitchell!!!

    This video just makes me so happpy, I feel the need to send it to everyone I know. I should clarify that a small article I read about it said that I think they did film it MANY times, but what I meant by “one take” is that this wasn’t edited. They didn’t use the first 30 seconds of one take and the next 30 seconds of take 3 or whatever. You can actually see one guy kind of slip about a minute into the video.

    I also just kept laughing the pink shirted guy who seemed to really love staring at the camera throughout the video. Crazy genius.

    Cost: $4.95 for the videotape.
