Whoo! I finally got to make one of these! Whatcha all think? I thought it was pretty good. Genius idea with the one easter egg. I would spoil it for you all though. I myself give it a 3.4/5, or rounded down to 3/5.

Aw peas, I made my topic and everything, and then I saw this. Lame.

Anyways, that was super hilarious. I loved the lacrosse part.

I liked it a lot. It was the first email to make me laugh out loud in a long time, and maybe possibly the best non-milestone email (Rock Opera, Alternate Universe, Email Thunder) since Montage (in my opinion).

Blurry. Photographic. Evidence.
Wow, this was a) a SBEmail, and b) actually really funny. 5/5. Quite rare from me, you know. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some eels to be planting in someone's hovercraft. Good day.

Beginning kinda bored me, but I loved the videographer video. Then it got boring. Strong Bad's typing seems to be more boring than usual. I think it's the new computer. 4/5

It was slow at first, but got better as it went on. It was even funnier the second time, and the third time. Clever throwing in a Youtube Easter egg. My favorite part was the camera. We still have a VHS camera.

I agree on the "fireman" part. The slideshow parody was great. It'll be so great no one will know you're not in it! ROTFL

I liked it a lot. 4/5 only because the audio quality was terrible. I could barely understand what strong bad was saying. "baby drops an f-bomb" thats internet gold!

Well, I just watched it again and I've decided to up my rating to 4/5. The random transition effects were hilarious, and I really do wonder if anyone actually ever uses sepia tone. The lacrosse part was great too, especially since Applebees is one of my favorite restaurants.

It would be a 4/5 because of some slow parts, but it gets a 5/5 simply because of the Youtube easter egg. The 'job' descriptions and the videographer segment were excellent.

That was great. Like, it was too good. I'm actually working on a video project for college, and so this really hits home with me, the effects that you can make with iMovie, the transitions, etc. The title and clipart thing, my family is notorious for using during family photo slideshow DVD's. The easter egg about the on board mic being too close to the camera motor is just mint, professional filmographers who are really picky will always opt for a secondary mic, and so I guess it's just funny that he mentioned that.

It's nice to see a toon sometimes that isn't so surreal that nobody can connect with it.

5.

Not to poop on anyone's paradé but, do you think they pulled the ol' "Tony-Clifton-opening-for-Andy-Kaufman" kind of thing?
I'm not saying this Sbemail was bad (IT"S NOT). It's just that the last toon had everyone about to "fill their toupée".
Do you think they did that just to make this one look way better by comparison?

Ok-ish. It had funny lines, but it was boring at the begining.

3 chickens.

(BTW, I guess I missed the Youtube easter egg. I guess the new computer mades it harder to spot them. :-()

Totally amazing! So much to love, but perhaps the best was the "extra-hidden" easter egg to a Senor Cardgage spot! Brilliant! 5/5, for total sure!

The best sbemail and the best update on the whole site for a long, long time. I actually laughed for this. It was great.

The other characters are somewhat missing in this sbemail, but I like it anyway. The easter eggs were the actual internet gold for which I was tempted to give a 5, but all in all it's

@HomestarJammer: use the code on one of the Easter eggs to search on Youtube.

Holy crapcakes. When wasn't I laughing?

Easily 4.8273119237, which I'll round to a 5/5. Nice work.

I think the whole "demo reel" segment was a loose parody of those old NewTek video toaster demo reels from the early 90s.

And SB does it again! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: / :cheat: , or 10/5. Total internet gold! And the easter egg was great as well, but how come the wiki page said it used to link to the video and now only gives the videoID?

*SB's transitional thingies reminded me of the MovieMaker crapjobs of "amatuer" YouTube Poopers. +5 lulz.
*Any sbemail with SB narrating instantly gets +10 lulz.
*"Animated clip art and copyright-free classical music": :D +15 lulz. With a x2 bonus for doubling as a Take That against the copywrongers of YouTube (aka the people who keep muting videos for "copyrighted music").
*Mispronounciating words and crap like that: +5 lulz.
*The ending with all that stuff about baby Cluster F Bombs, puking, and mislabelling a tape as "WEDDIN' TAPE": +8,051 lulz!

I'll let you get to adding up all the lulz bonuses and figuring out what this all adds up to. All in all, this was a great sbemail.

"Oh, yeah. I can smell those million-plus views already." It was posted yesterday and it's already up to 7,000+. Internet Gold.

I had a wide smile on my face when I was watching this. Oh, sbemails are back. ITS department and fireman were solid jokes. And I was glad to here the sbemailerized song.

I wouldn't call it one of the best sbemails ever, but I liked the pacing of it, how it just kept rollin' along. I never even had enough time to laugh, SB was talking so constantly. Which I see as a good thing? XD

My favorite part was meatloaf night in the old west. Tee-hee!
