    I really like to work with either these guys or guys like these.

    Thank god I don't drink.

    Benzaie, you are by far the best Ke$ha immpersonator ever.

    I'd like to see a review on "48 Weeks Later," aka "Last Rites." According to the 3.5 out of 10 star rating on IMDB, this movie sucks.

    Nice taste for choosing "The Touch" for the end. I don't care what anyone else says, but I love Transformers 3, and so do my friends and anyone else I'ce come across.

    BTW, thanks for that nightmare you gave us after the end credits.

    Man, Nella destroyed Benzai with the car bomb chugging; seeing you guys just goof around is actually really fun. I guess Elisa's earlier tribute was mostly filmed while you were passed-out drunk on the alcoholic chocolate milk and whipped cream.

    As per usual, every time I see Nella I fall a little bit more in love with her.

    It's beyond my control at this point.

    Wow! Doug really knows how to do a great motivational speech! Also, Doug's dad is totally awesome!

    They can put alcohol into whip cream now? It sure is the future!

    I almost saw the top of Todd's head :D

    Holly seems like the coolest person ever!

    I noticed the top of Todd'd head too! Only it was just for a fraction of a second so I couldn't get the video to pause at the right moment plus it was probably too blurry anyway to make out his features. But still! xD

    Nice music choises. The Trine soundtrack is pretty awesome and you can't go wrong with Korpiklaani either. Good to see you guys pulled through despite all the shortcomings with the weather and all. Here's to another great year of reviews!

    Hey Benzaie,
    Just wanted to say Thanks! Your vlog of this years event was very much appreciated here-It is so good to see all the reviewers, gamers, and fellow nerds Ive come to love here at the TGWTG as they just relax and be themselves. It must be awesome to be able to work with people you consider tight friends-a dream job in my view; your a pretty lucky guy!
    Loved the conan music scores-one of my all time favorite movies/cd -enjoyed it tons...OH! and thank you most esp for letting us see a pic of Sarah Wilson, aka Pushing up Roses! To me she is one of the best girls here at the website and I was super disappointed to not see her in this years production; I'm glad to know she was there though, helping behind the scenes.
    Speaking as just one fan of many here, Thanks to you and all the TGWTG cast for all the hard work and super entertainment--I love it & will keep trying to lend support/donate when possible. Au revoir! -Dream

    This vlog went great with the Suburban Knights commentary uploaded on Spoony's site. I'm sure they'll upload it here soon.

    Wow... I thought I saw Benzaie in Estes Park but was like "Why the hell would he be in Colorado?".
  • Trencher
    What!? They repacked Gangs of the Dead as forty eight weeks later!!! What the heeelllll!!!

    Thanks for the warning Benzaie.

    Great video both fun and heartfelt.

    I feel like a creeper getting so much enjoyment out of just seeing the bunch of you hanging out.

    Also, Suede! Sorry, initial excitement still hasn't worn off.

    Damn, why'd I have to be an American. I could really use that "I'm European and therefore I HAVE to kiss your wife" excuse....although it may not work quite so well for a chick. Two strikes against me getting some illicit action with a married woman.
  • AlucardsQuest
    avatar
    Interesting. I had no idea the chicks were such vivid alcoholics. Will there be a 3rd sitcom episode?
  • shaneomax  - Amazing
    I finally registered after years of watching videos on this site because of this video. I sometimes wonder what critics are like in the real world if they are nit-picky or if their regular people. It's so great to see people beyond their characters and to see the love that Doug has for all of you. Thank you for posting this, and please never take these times for granted. :)

    OMG!!!! You used Forces from Berserk?? I love you Benzaie!!!

    I'm really glad for you that you've met such wonderful people that are like family to you xD it's such a great feeling to be that close to a group of people and I'm glad you're able to share that experience with them!

    Loved the vlog ^_^ It was nice to see the behind the scenes.

    You guys are so lucky - looks like the most awesome job in the world with fantastic people :3

    Now I have to go on an epic quest for this "Adult Chocolate Milk" you spoke of =D
  • Kakujin  - Great to see
    This was really fun to see Ben ^^. Love to see you guys just be together and create madness ^^. Also, excuse me for being a bit slow here, but what song are you playing over the MvC battle

    Even without viewing this vid (yet) I'd like to hang out with any of the crew. I actually had a dream where I was part of Suburban Knights.

    Though I think next time I visit my family in Halifax, I'll send a tweet to Phelous and offer to buy him a beer.
  • NixLaser
    So the name for this while shooting was Dungeons and Critics?
    I like that one more than Suburban Knights, why did you changed it?
  • chady1  - :D

    Benzaie you inspire me.
  • EpicFish

    Great video Benzaie! You do realize, everyone wants Adult Chocolate Milk now. Actually, I found a website that sells it for those that can't get it from their local stores: http:// www.hitimewine.net

    Also loved the ending of the vid. Too bad those gloves didn't come off! Oh and your Ke$ha impersonation. XD

    God damned Todd Mysterio!

    That Shining Hotel is scary as fuck...

    O, merci Monsieur Zaie - or may I call you Ben?

    Once again you invite us along on your wonderful journey, and give all of us a glimpse of how it is to be part of the family TuhGuhWuhTuhGuh.

    I may weep openly.

    Hurray for Susumu Hirasawa and Forces. That scene at the bar was quite reminiscent of that one scene in Titanic. And it's a joy to have Suede back. It's truly is a fine barrel of monkeys, pack o' crackerjacks you have here and to be sure, we'll keep coming to partake in your fun. Thanks.

    I thought we Quebecers were frogs...
  • Vismutti

    The French are the original Frogs, I think. Because they eat frogs or something like that.
  • sdnoriko

    People from Quebec are Frog-Canadian. Or, Canadien, if you préfer.
  • vecaapezha
    So, did you finally scored with Lindsay?
    Nah, I guess not, shes annoyed again at the end.
  • Keitaro  - oh man
    avatar
    that was truly awesome and touching, you guys are really like a huge family and there's just so much great chemistry between everyone. Seriously glad I watched this :D
  • Destroy  - Photo with Sarah.
    Waitaminute, was Roses with you guys for the anniversary? Or was that photo of you two together from a different event?
  • LorienvArden

    His culture dictates that he must kiss you.
    - ah, ok...

    I loled at that.
    Ever tried that as a pickup line ?
    "'ello - I'm french, so I have to kiss you... no not in the face..."
  • JaiCSC

    Awesome work Benzai. I enjoy your Vlogs your experiences for the anniversary special filming.

    You capture a great insight on the whole group, same goes with Paw's dance off videos too.

    Seems like everyone was really dedicated for this one. Doug's thank you speech was nice to hear.

    It's a shame about the music you used (good selection) cause when the Suburban knights DVD comes out I would like this behind the scenes video to be on there too as one of the extras.

    i like how paw has to sit in the trunk :)

    great vid. looking forward to more of the vlogs
  • FullmetalNinja25
    avatar
    I hope Todd doesn't see this video because when you filmed saying goodbye to everyone there are a couple of instances where you didn't cover Todd's face in time and I saw the top of his head and his eyes (they were closed but still).

    Anyways I always look forward to these VLogs every year Benzaie thank you.

    P.S: I wonder if anyone else recorded the crew playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 I'd like to see that unedited and without music covering their reactions.
  • benzaie

    Todd saw it and didn't care because

    1. It's a 300p video with a low bitrate
    2. he's in the background with shitty lighting
    3. It's a fraction of a second...

    Even if you pause and take a screenshot, you'll get to see half of a pixelated mess... BIG DEAL

    I said it before and I'll say it again. Benny, your vlogs are one of the best things to look forward to when a site anniversary comes up. You capture the team just hanging out like a family. I remember Lindsay saying in a blog that this year that she felt this time the group was a family. It really shows!

    Great vlog, my friend. You really know how to bring out the best in this group of people. Doug's speech was really inspirational! Of course, credit has to be given to Holly for doing a great job! You're all just fantastic! Great job, everyone!
  • Moreno X  - I know
    Took these guys for four years (I think) to come around and try to get to know one another and see each other's work and style and wit to finally come to the point that they were feeling and living and hanging out like a family. Man, it seems (correct me if I'm wrong) that if it weren't for Doug to launch the TGWTG.com site, we wouldn't see all these strangers who started from whether from YouTube, independent sites or winning some kind of a contest to be a contributing member of the site...to come around to be like a family and hang each other like a family. Doug, to me, is the reason we, the fans, are here watching their shtick - whether we have fun and watch or being serious and having fun to criticise or not - and seeing them share their lives with us.

    Man, personally, I wish I have group of guys who can be like these "brothers and sisters" of the TGWTG Family. In fact, I did had a family from high school once ten years ago...only it lasted for short time due of others being jerks and traitors (I have my flaws to pay as well but never was my intention to let it happened, unfortunately) to go with their douchey lives. Happily though, I have few of friends that they're still in touch with me which it is good enough that they've stuck with me to enjoy together like Benzaie and gang are doing here, and THAT is what's so inspiring to watch and enjoy.
