Youtube?

On a site that HUGE, who found this? And how? Einstein runner (Talk | contribs) 05:29, 2 April 2008 (UTC) (left unsigned)

The YouTube code is in an Easter egg in shapeshifter. This user found the egg, and this user figured out that it was a YouTube code. Trey56 05:34, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Has vanished

The Youtube video is gone. Anyone download it and save it?— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 06:45, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

The comments were glitchy. I hopethink that's why it was taken down, and that it's temporary. Shwoo 06:54, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
The link works again, but in case it goes down again, here's the mirror that greg2point0 from the forums uploaded. Trey56 08:24, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
It's back up again, but I think I'll leave off editing the page to say so until it stays up for a long time. If I'm right and the problem was the glitchy comments, it should stay up now. Shwoo 10:30, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Wii Remote Jackets

Should I add a note about the reference to those accessories since they came so many months after the Wii's launch? Bad Bad Guy 21:27, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

When I bought my Wii system, it came with a remote jacket. TheCoolBot 23:04, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
That's because they released them for free to existing Wii owners, and included them with currently sold systems. —Einstein runner (thorax.pngfile_icon.gifmail_icon.gif) 04:31, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Inside references

Okay, two parts of this video remind me of toons on the site: 1.The movments of Strongbad in the videogame closely resemble/are identical to the movements he made in Cartoon. 2.The "Actual Gameplay Footage" flashing is a little similar to "Trial Version" in Pay Plus. Anyone else agree with me on either of these?-- DongleGoblin 22:18, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

More Real world refrences

Is it just me or does it look like the Baba Jaga is taking off out of the window in something Bowser-esque from Mario? Possibly a reference to Mario? It looks like his clown cup with a propellor on it that he uses in many of the games, Super Smash Bros Brawl, to name the latest.

Youtube Notability...

Is it notable that this is the first official youtube video by TBC? ColdReactive

Umm... unless they make more, I'd say... not really. -- lelila (talk) 23:12, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Then we'll just have to wait and see. ColdReactive

G4

Is it worth noting that Attack of the Show already had a Wii safety video that made fun of airplane safety videos? Bad Bad Guy 22:11, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm... maybe you should add that to Real World References. TheThin 22:18, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

in real-world references

I don't think George Jetson counts as a real-world reference.

Then you don't watch old cartoons. --Color Printer 02:44, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
I think he was referring to the entirety of the world beyond The Fourth Wall. It's arguable that it isn't a real world reference, but I have to agree with Color Printer. ColdReactive 03:12, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, although it may be The Jetsons do not exist in the real world, the image and person is part of the collective American experience. And as to it's inclusion on the Wiki, just going to a Random Article, I came accross pop-up which has references to the equally Fake World Frito Bandito and Police Quest so yeah...there's a marked precedent.

Gameways -> Airways

As Strong Bad is wearing a flight attendant's uniform, shouldn't it be proper to mention that "Gameways" is a play on the word "Airways"? 24.165.150.118 16:08, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

That woul be explaining the joke... — Defender1031*Talk 16:10, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Shouldn't this be a fun fact

Fun Facts are never supposed to explain the obvious jokes. Bad Bad Guy 02:53, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Powered by the Cheat?

It appears that large chunks of this short are animated in PBTC style: e.g. the open space and the Baba Jaga scenes. Should this be noted? It seems a little crude for TBC's normal animation. 23:05, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Naw, it's more of the crude type of animation used in safety vid diagrams. — Defender1031*Talk 22:07, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

ubiquitous

I wanted to know someone else's opinion on this. Maybe i was the only person who didn't know this word. HOwever, if i wasn't i was just wondering what the policy is (if there is one) on using words that maybe the common person might not know. My only point is that the Wiki is meant to be helpful, which it isnt if someone doesn't understand it. Sorry if I sound snobby or dumb or something... for some reason this just really stood out to me. If the is completely irrevelant, please disregard. =] --Acam30 23:01, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

You're not the only one. I don't know it either. --75.5.180.133 17:23, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Ubiquitous means all-over and encompassing. So ubiquitous safety warnings means that the safety warning are all over the place. That being said, I do agree that the word adds no content to the fact and removed it. Flashfight
I disagree. I think the word (or a synonym) is important in the sentence, since this video is a parody of the over-the-top prevalence of safety warnings throughout the Wii. For people who are unfamiliar with the Wii, it's helpful to note this.
As for the general population's familiarity with the word, I don't think it's particularly obscure. And if somebody has to look it up and learns a new word, that's a good thing (especially in the current text-messaging generation). That said, if somebody can think of a good synonym, I'd be fine with substituting it. Trey56 02:48, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

YouTube Account Article?

Should we have a separate article for the TBC's YouTube account? So we can list the honors they got and when, list the views gotten for a video within a week, etc.? --75.5.180.133 17:17, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Mike?

Could Mike Chapman be the one who made the video?Katonator 3000 02:35, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Matt probably helped. --DorianGray 02:37, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Mirror on Homestarruner.com

Hey is there some mirror of the toon on the website?
