    First. It's absoutley meaningless to point out who was first in commenting and what not but hell why not right? Well you don't cause it's annoying as crap but here's hoping my first stops other first from firsting out.

    How about you post something that's actually relevant to the damn video, if you want a "first" comment so badly?

    Christ's sake, this isn't that hard, people.

    HOLY CRAP, CHESTER AND DONNIE HAVE TO MAKE THIS MOVIE TOGETHER! DO NOT LET US DOWN! XD
  • Neo Ultra Mike
    Also if the next Demo Reel IS what Chester described here and it's a big christmas special that combines every other special in a super action way then hell then Demo Reel CAN be improved and be made to be awesome. Seriously Doug get on that. If you made that special you'd get back all the fans and so many more, for serious.

    I agree, Christmas, Fuck Yeah! sounds truly awesome.

    Zooey Deschanel shower scene. That's what I have to say about Elf.

    Please tell me that this is going to be the next episode of Demo Reel! Because I want to see it to!
  • Bloodrealm
    See, Chester? Look what you can accomplish when you get off the drugs and booze.

    Also... DEMO REEL IS NOW CANON WITH THE TGWTG REVIEWERVERSE!! IT CANNOT BE UNDONE!! You know what that means? OBLIGATORY CAMEOS!!

    And if you make that Demo Reel episode, Doug, you are obligated to also have them make Racist Alien Big-Boobied Explosions. And you know you want to.

    Wait, if this is in canon with Demon Reel, how did Donnie escape the gunman in the taxi?

    It's the plothole, BITCH!

    P.S, I'm just kidding, I'm not calling her a bitch, it's a play on Linkara's catchphase, and it's sad that I have to make that absolutely clear . In fact, I'll still probably have someone complain to me.
  • Floweramon
    Except Linkara has no catchphrase with the word bitch. I assume you mean "It's magic, I don't have to explain it" which people in crossovers keep changing to "It's magic, bitch." (It's like how Darth Vader said "No, I am your father." not "Luke, I am your father")

    NOTE: This is not a complaint, just a clarification.
  • Oblivion Mara  - Oooooouh yeah!
    Amen. That's all I have to say.

    I had the exact same reaction. Thanks for your comment, it was pure gold -except that we have no proof Chester actually get off the drugs and booze. In fact, that scenario sounded totally drug-induced...
    But who cares? It's grand.

    And now I can say the world ain't gonna end in a handful of days, for this movie HAS to be done beforehand...

    Hurray for Donnie cameos ! Hurray for Demo Reel in-universe-ness !!
    And for the faint hope of seeing RABBE coming one day to our screens...

    We're entering a glorious era, I'm telling you.

    Ever heard of a little thing called iTunes?!
  • Kirsten425  - This Christmas movie totally has to happen now!
    avatar
    Please make this a possibility with Demo Reel, Doug! It would be the greatest Christmas movie ever! I will watch it every December and love it. You have everything in you to make it epic and wonderful. I believe in you! And Santa Christ!

    Great vid.

    I totally hate that Elf movie though.
  • armagod679
    Agreed. Will Farrell is annoying. And what's worse is that every single teacher I had my junior year of high school showed it on the last day before winter break.
  • TheBechtloff
    avatar
    To me Will Farrell is very hit or miss. There are certain movies where I think he's hilarious, The Campaign for example I thought was great. But then sometimes he farts out a POS like Elf.

    Honestly I would rather let a tarantula lay eggs in my ear then sit through that movie again.
  • armagod679
    Point. He was okay in Stranger than Fiction, where he wasn't being an immature jackass, but that's the only movie of his I like, and really, it was saved by Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson.
  • DudeDelSombrero
    Chester A. Bum as a cast member in Demo Reel... Fuck yeah! Please make it possible.

    Wow! Chester A. Bum is finally making a movie?
    --
    Can't wait to see it? It might help Donnie in his career as well. XD

    No more living in a box, Chester! Congrats!
  • Schizoid
    avatar
    Wait! Chester swore? The world really IS coming to an end!

    I didn't really care for Elf. I haven't really cared for any of Will Ferrell's movies. Though I do like Will. I also liked "Stranger Than Fiction" but that's more of a movie with Will Ferrell than a Will Ferrell movie.
  • pomaflah
    Chester swore because this wasn't Chester. Secretly aliens have taken over comedy and are doing a William Shatner job of it. They have kidnapped Doug and Rob Walker and are preventing them from making real videos. At least I hope that's what happened.
  • Fangheart

    I'd probably go see "CHRISTMAS! FUCK YEAH!" if it was in theaters....
  • Edit Death
    avatar
    I'd probably be up for that, but only if the title is "Christmas! Fuck Yeah!"

    As far as "Elf" goes though, it's kind of odd for me. I cannot stand Will Ferrell, yet I don't mind this movie. Hell, my parents even like it! I just don't know. It's enjoyable, I just don't know why.

    I'd have to say that Elf, "Blast from the Past" (Brendon Fraser) & "Tooth Fairy" (The Rock) are the three most embarrassing movies I've ever seen.

    Lupa could make the movie. Just give her $50 & a box of colored pencils.

    Overrated movie, just like the Godfather, which also starred Will Ferrell.

    Aww, this is the last Bummy Christmas review? Oh well, at least you can do a Bum Review of the Hobbit part 1 now. As for the movie idea, I love it! I also loved the little Donnie cameo in there!

    I mean it... One of your best vids yet!
  • pomaflah
    This didn't feel like a Bum Review. This felt like Nostalgia Critic in the bum costume. Did you lose your bum voice when you decided to make the mediocre sitcom wannabe Demo Reel?
  • Poipoi
    avatar
    wow pomaflah... just... wow

    Let it go. You'll feel happier if you do.
  • pomaflah
    I'm sorry, but it really just makes me angry. He's never needed this long to find his footing on a show before, and honestly, the low ratings and negative reviews should have told him this was a bad idea. AskThatGuy got 5-star ratings from the fist episode because it knew what it was. Demo Reel gets 3 and 4-star ratings because it has no idea what it is. And a show with an identity crisis is just not good.
  • Timekeeper

    Well, I really like Bum's idea about this "Greatest Christmas special of all time", I think it's could be awesome, I really wish to see it.
  • VillainousBlogger  - BEST CROSSOVER EVER!
    avatar
    It's sad that the Bummy Christmas reviews are over for this year but Elf was a nice movie to go out on.

    And that epic crossover with every Christmas special mentioned plus Nightmare Before Christmas AND Alf?! Brilliant!

    I would love to see Chester and Donny DuPre to work on this together! It would be awesome!
  • Leon Real
    Say, Doug does a pretty good Alf voice.

    Okay, we definitely gotta see that movie next year on "Demo Reel"!
  • Mousy Voice

    Donnie making a movie based on an idea from the Bum. This is either the best idea or the worst.

    Chester A. Bum and Donnie Duprae working together on a movie? ABANDON SITE!!! xD
  • thorondragon
    why is it that i feel like we just glimpsed into Micheal Bay's deep dark psyche with this? shutters.
  • FRSpro
    avatar
    I was hoping Chester would describe the film more, like how Santa is played by the policeman from Freakazoid, or that Buddy's real father is Sonny from the Godfather

    For the ultimate Christmas movie, Chester still needs to write in Scrooge, the ghosts of christmas past, present and future, Mr. Bean, the woodland critters, Kevin from home alone, George Baily, Clarense, The polar express conductor, Blackadder, Gizmo, The Snowman, Jack frost (both the killer one & Michael keaton), star wars holiday special Bea Arther, Arnold as Turbo Man, Ernest, Chucky, John Lithgow from Santa Clause, and of course SANTA CHRIST!
  • fanime1  - OMG Turbo Man, yes!

    Thank you! You somehow made the best Christmas movie ever even better!
