Join us on the next LIVE REDDIT TALK Thur 9/1 @ 3pm PST

Straw media. Hello, hello, everyone. We are going to get started soon. We're just waiting for the scholar brothers to join us. It is going to be an open talk today, so if you have any questions for them, uh, please, feel free to raise your hand by hitting the hands icon on the Lower Nav and we will bring you up on stage to ask your question. Alternatively, if you're feeling were like a keyboard warrior, we do accept questions through the comments and we will be taking a look at those throughout the show. So drop any comments there as well, and we look forward to hearing from you. Either way, we'll get started soon, and hang tight and get comfy reading. It's so whelming. Hut Pezar has to tell me. Why would anyone want to be live deaf man have a reputation? Bushy arrives to trust me, we have way more fun. We have way more fun. Can you hear me now? This is randy, randy key. Hi, Hey, can you hear me? Into Jay? I can hear you too. I can hear you, Jay. Hi, guys, H we are so, so excited to have you guys here. Oh Man, this is so fun. We are loving this whole week of this show and the whole season. As fans of the show, was like, Oh my God, we just don't want to come in and screw it up because we love it so much. There is a very, very active community too, and you are here on the dedicated what we do in the shadows subreddit. So you're talking to the people that love it, love it and know it the most. So cool, so cool. Look, by the way, this is not standard operating procedure when you go do like a guest starring role on a show, to go do an m a reddit. Like we didn't do an M a. read it after we did Becker. So well, I was going to ask, since you were fans of the show before joining, like, can you tell us about what it was like to you? Were you guys proactively trying to get on because you were fans, or what was that journey like? So that is usually that is definitely one way that we get on shows is like we find a show that we love and then, pardon the term, but single white female the hell out of it until we're like, you gotta get us on, we gotta figure out a way, and that has merited us work from time to time. This was just one that we love so when the audition came down, it felt like on some level of it felt like it was written for us. We know that. I don't know if it was or not. I mean the producers can tell you if they I know that we were kind of in mind, but they could have gone in a different direction. Once it came down, we're like, Oh my God, we have to get this, we have to get this. It seems so funny and we didn't even see the full script. And then once you get on the set, things come to life in other ways and it just blossomed into like the best professional experience we've had. That's amazing. And how much of the property brothers did you all know about before going in it? Is it weird to admit that I've never seen one episode of their show? I mean I I know them and we've met them, like Randy and I actually did on David Spade's lights out show. We did something called secret stand up where we were we were with Courtney Cox where we did this, and we're in this back room of the comedy store and the Scott Brothers are on stage and randy and I are feeding them lines to do as stand up comedians and they're doing them and it was like look, I think it's every woman's dream to be inside of one of the Scott Brothers. And we were. Randy and I were inside and two of them and uh, and we were in their minds and we got to...

...do it and we got to meet them before and and they're super nice and Randy saw one of them recently and at Micro Biglia's opening show of his his new stage show in l a at the mark tape reforum, and they're great. They're super guys. They're like six FT eight, they look like model robots. They're gorgeous. We definitely aren't those dudes. So I don't think our goal was to like imitate those guys. I think like there was a there was a note in one of the in the script about the music that Randy and I very much latched onto as actors and performers and just tried to make that come to life, which was strong Christian rock vibes. And as soon as we got that right now we're like, okay, these guys are like these guys come to the youth conference and they're like the cool pastors. Yeah, yeah, they're the ones that backflipped onto stage. Yeah, and turning the chair. Turned the chair around and it down and it's like, Hey, guys, can we just wrap about stuff? Listen, Hey, listen. Sometimes I don't like to wear a belt either. I'm I'm on your wavelength, guys. Yeah, jumping jacks for Jesus, I get it. Oh, I love it. I love it. Well, Um, we're so excited to hear more about your journey. We do have someone on stage here to ask you a question live and just for everyone else who's just joining, welcome. If you would like a chance to ask a question live, hit that hand button and we will bring you up on stage to ask your question. We're also checking the comments, so if you want to drop your question there, feel free. Squad, you're on stage if you'd like to mute and ask your question. Hello from work again. My question is like, when you got the script, were you guys like, did you know who what what was going to happen in the beginning, or did you guys just kind of like pick it or what? So that's a great question. Thank you. And because it wasn't like Jason, you do this one and Rad do you do this? They basically they're like you guys divided up however you want. And we started to read it like we do any audition, and for some reason I just kept gravitating towards the brand role and Jason was gravitating towards toby. And we read in the audition that toby gets toby gets killed. But you know, you know this show. I mean the baron has come back like half a body. It's like we didn't know the rest of the script. Like so we don't know if, like, he then becomes a vampire. So I mean in that in that sense we're like, oh my God, the toby character might be the craziest character of all because he gets bitten and then maybe he becomes a vampire. So we didn't know what it was going to be after that. We just knew that it was really funny that we walked in the door and not just immediately, immediately one of us is just killed, like we just came with such positive energy and a whole produced show open and then one of us is just gone. And I think that's that was their initial joke that they were, I think, working with when they had the concept, and so we laughed a lot at that. But I didn't realize that I would that be the end of what I was doing in the show, and so I I hung around a lot on set because I just love the show so much. So I would just watch, you know, I loved watching them do what they were doing, and Yana Gore Sky, who's the director, was amazing. She's an amazing director and editor. I think she edited this episode two. It was like, you know, for her, she was just laughing at all the takes and I was pitching randys jokes and lines to improvise with and play with in other scenes and I just didn't want to leave the set, even though my character was gone. That's how fun it was. Who knows, maybe they'll like bury him in the yard and bringing back another heapen. Amen. Amen. Nothing. I mean listen, I think what's crazy is the response to this episode has been. I mean, we can already tell it. It's been insane. Even on our thing. We just posted on our instagram, like the produced open for go flip yourself. Literally. We posted and...

...collapsed with the shadows effects, you know, with their instagram, and it's like, I mean it's been viewed like hundreds of thousands of times. It's insane. So who knows, maybe they'll figure out some way to bring us back, which of course we would do in a second. Well, I think let's all we have, so thank you for your time. Huge fans. Thank you and go back to doing what I'm paid for. We'll come back soon. We love having you. Thank you. Oh my gosh, that's amazing. I mean, I love hearing about the behind the scenes matching what we see on the screen, because you can tell that everyone's having so much fun and this is just such a testament to be like, okay, my my fantasies about what's happening on set are true. I mean so much so. And, like you know, what they did that was that we can share. That's really that. I think is really cool and this helped us out a lot. So the first night we're shooting, it's like super cold. It's November and it's in Toronto, so it's freezing and it's a shoot for us that's going to go to like four in the mornings because they're shooting overnight. So we get there and we're all amped up and we're super excited to be there and then instead, like all the trailers, this is very like holly would speak, but the trailers for all the talent was over at one point, kind of behind the where the house is, and then they had like one trailer for all the casts to wait in before they would be brought to set, which is much closer to set. So in that trailer we're just hanging out with Natasha and Matt and, you know, and and and Cavan and, like we're all just hanging out and Jay and I just love to riff with people and I mean this is the beauty of what we love to do, and so here we are just gagging around with these guys and I think it made them super comfortable with us. It certainly made us really comfortable and we were having the best time. And then they call us to set, so that when we get on the set it's like they already know that we can be funny. They already know. They've just seen us like be funny in a context that wasn't even related to the show. And then we got out there and it was like, Oh yeah, they were just ready to play. It was such a I don't know if they did that just so that everybody would be warm before they got outside and they were going to be in the freezing cold or they did it to sort of in an abstract way, to create chemistry with the cast, but it did well. It showed. I mean you all slotted in so perfectly. So, yes, I love. I love also thinking of you know, I know you were talking about getting warm in terms of like getting to know each other, but also thinking of Toronto being very cold, was very nice and cozy. Oh yeah, t staffer, you're on if you'd like to ask your question. Hi, just one of the first thing. I loved you guys in Mighty mad so I was very excited to see you guys and I just expected to be a small cameo in the first episode and was so pumped to see a full episode for for you. Thank you. My my question was, for how much did you actually know you were going to be Simon the dubious? was that a surprise, or did you come into it knowing you were playing an alter ego of Simon? Yeah, so that's a great question. So I did know that and that actually super informed how I played the character and the more I was like getting in good with with Matt's character, the more brand was like buddying up to to Lazlow, like coming up with their nicknames for him and just hanging out with him and hugging him and all this other stuff. Like the worst it was, it's revealed that it's Simon. So to me, I've got to rewatch that to see to see you do that. I didn't even catch that. bludding up to him so much, he's like telling me a story about his hats and I'm like anticipating it and I love it, you know. I'm like I'm like basically his hype man throughout, and he's of course, I know he loves the show so like he's just so excited that we're there that I'm feeding off of that...

...in a way that is actually quite devious, because I know I'm going to screw him in the end. It just is so great because it just, to me, made it more funny when I'm literally becoming best friends with him. Great question, t staffer. Do you have any other questions? I mean, yeah, I just I was very excited to see you in this because I've always enjoyed your work. Thank you so much. Thanks so much, t staffer. Have a great rest of your day and come back up if you have another question. Yeah, for sure. This person actually in the comments asked the question I was going to ask you all, but Stacey M Joe asks high excellent work with a smiley face. You have lots of fans here you too. Or there any unexpected moments of Improv that's sprung up while filming this last episode? Yes, totally. There were so many. Uh when when Naja is hypnotizing the whole crew, and there's like two parts to it. She hypnotized everyone and then does the flash back to when she hypnotizes the whole crew and she's like, you know, all of you guys who are here, plus everyone else who's a part of the show, and then she stops and she's like well, who else? Who Else? Who Else would watch this? Who Else would watch this? And I just started to say the lines that were in there, which were like editors and there's the producers and there are people at the network and standards and practices, and then she wasn't stopping me, so I just kept going. I was like, there's a producer whose girlfriend once saw one cut of the show and now her name's Wendy and we have to give her cuts. And then she wasn't Soto me and I was like one time we were renovating a house and a kid flew a kite in the attic and now we let him take a look at something like that. I mean it was ridiculous. We just kept going and going, going, and then she's like alright, alright, alright, fine, all those people too, but it was great how long she let it go. And of course my whole goal was to try and get her to crack up, but to do that in a very dead Pan Way. That was really funny. And Yeah, I still had to act like you were being hypnotized, so that was like improvising as a hypnotized like a personally, it was very fun that. That was really fun. And then a thing that didn't make it in that I love so much. It didn't make any but it was fun, is when I go up to the man cave with Cavan and mark and Nandor and Marwa, and first of all I love that I kept calling Nander like like a guy who wouldn't know his name and just make it more folksy, you know, or like the way like a white, like Christian, rocky guy would just like never take the time to actually find out how to properly pronounce his name. Nanda hit it, Nander over here, and so I was talking to him about, you know, this, look at this bar, this amazing bar, and then I came around to the front. They cut it down. It's fine, but I came around to the front and I just started like giving the cameraman, my crew cameraman, a name. So I was like hey, hey, Merle, I just think that's a funny name for a guy. I was like, Merl can we get a shot of the front of this far here? That's and it's a type and you see, you it's an extreme close up at the front of look in the wood on this thing, and it just we just kept on going through terms like that. So those the improvs would come up and of course Janna like encouraged it in the best way and as long as it didn't take away from the scene, and those moments were just so, so dumb and fun. That's amazing. Thank you for that. We have way more fun. We have trashy fan girl on to ask a question. If you'd like to meet yourself and ask Hey, wondering um saying that you're the funds of the show and what were you the most excited before coming for the first time on set. Liked? Anything surprised you out there? Did you find your favorite place on the set or something like that?...

Yeah, great question, Jay, go ahead, I'll let you answer. I mean I was like so obviously, like the obvious answer is just getting to like play with those guys and hang with those guys, like we knew we would be able to spend quality time with them. So we were super excited about that. I was actually excited to walk into the set and see what the house was like and see, you know, just to explore arob on the set. It was so cool and it is a beautiful, practical, like big set and it's like, you know, this is one of the most iconic looking sets on television, and so to just go in and out of the rooms, you do feel it does help you as an actor, like you are like wait, I'm in a very specific place, and it does like help you zero in on it is not allow to make you don't have to make believe a lot when you're in there, you're you're really feeling it. So I was really psyched just to see the inside of the House. Yeah, the inside the house was amazing, even though it was in disarray with our episode it was amazing and Super Fun. I mean I just loved I was really excited to get to play with, you know, Natasha dimitrio and and and Matt Barry. We we knew Matt through Um, a friend of ours, rich fulture, who did a sketch theories with Matt called Um snuffbox. If you don't seen it, you must see it. I'm sure you guys are aware of it. If sure you guys are aware of it, it's so funny. And he and rich is an old friend of ours who we've worked with for a long time, and he and Matt. So we kind of knew him through that. And didn't we have them like guests do our podcast one time, like they yeah, they moved around for a while. It was really fun and those guys are great and I was just excited and of course Ja and I like huge fans of like it goes deep, like staff letts flats, you know Natasha's brother Jamie's show on BBC that she's on as well. That was so funny. So we're like when I took a deep dive into, you know, some of the sketch stuff that she's done and just fans, I mean of course, and of on at Harvey we were like super excited to just play with those guys and when we got there and found that they were so gracious, so fun like there were non verbal things that we didn't even discussed that we were going to do in scenes, like with Matt and we just and he just did them and we just went with it, and that's when you know it's like operating on a very, very high level. I think the last thing I would say is is it's look, we've we've been fortunate enough to work on all kinds of shows, shows that we're on life support and feeling like they weren't going to come back, and shows that we're very, you know, new and weren't sure what their future was like. We were looking forward to showing up on a set where they knew that. They're like this is the prime of the show, it's it's kicking on all cylinders. The network is obviously behind him, they're doing great stuff. So when you go to a set like that, everyone's in a good mood and they give you room to play, and so we knew that was going to be the case and exactly it was exactly that, and that just feels good. You feed off that energy. Thank you. This sounds amazing. Can I ask one more question? Sure, sure, okay. So did you did to see and in more parts of the set, beside the house or just the house? Okay, where else? Yeah, so, so. So, yeah, that's actually a great question. So, you know, they don't always. They filmed sometimes two parts of two episodes at once and and during the time we were up there, they would have you get covid tested regularly, and so they bring you to maybe the other set or another place that they're shooting to Covid test you, and then you're there. And so when we were there they were shooting at the night market episode. So we went like all my other is the coolest thing ever. So here we're just getting covid tested, but of course, even I though it's our day off, we like wanted to be around everybody. So, like we went to the that where they shot...

...the night market and we got to see them shoot some of that stuff. It was so beautiful. We saw rehearsal of the fight scene, Harvey's fight scene, GEARMO's fight scene and the in front of like all the parked cars, and it was in this like huge what was her. Yeah, so so. And on the my last day I had to stay an extra day to shoot that final photograph, like the Black and white photograph where it gives the dates of Toby's life at the end of the show, and so they did a photo shoot with me that day and so I was hanging around. It wasn't taking off till the next morning and they were like come to the sets and I were doing like a celebration for Harvey's birthday. There's gonna be like Taco trucks and it was. Harvey was hard. It was Caban's birthday, and so I so I took an uber all the way out to this thing, like out on the docks. It's so far in a weird part of across the river, across the water from it was in a part of know where people from Toronto don't even know where it is. And the Uber guys like I'm just gonna let you out here and I'm like, I don't know how to get into this place. I'm like behind a fence and I'm like walking in darkness and I feel like I'm in an episode of what we do in the shadows, like I'm gonna get killed by a vampire and I keep walking, walking, find like a hole in the fence. I find my way in and I'm you know, I'm not part of the CAST, but I've been part of the cast for the past few weeks and been hanging out with them and they were so sweet to me and happy to see me and like welcome me into this whole celebration. And and it was at the night market set and I got to see the subway shots and how they did the the you know, the subway cars not moving, and they did all these really cool lights on the outside to make it look like it was moving. I got to watch how they filmed that and it was awesome. This sounds crazy and just amazing, so good for you guys. Thank you for uncertainly. Thank you. Thanks so much, trashy fan girl. Moving right on too, rebels death. Hi, really big fan of the episode who was so incredible. Um, my question. What was the process like filding like the snippets of clip yourself that we see in other episodes, as well as like the intro? What was it like? Okay, that first of all great question, because that was Super Fun and we got to work with all the other directors, so kyle and there was another director that we worked with. Teak, I believe, was named the other director. And Yeah, so we had to like go out to these this house and like work with all these other actors and they really let us improvise. It was so funny. They like gave us the script and then we internalized kind of what we were saying because we knew that what we were saying was going to end up on a TV like with the crew betting, like what are these guys gonna do next? And then in the background of, you know, the first shot of the first scene of the first episode of the new season. So we're like we have to really play this as real as possible. I mean it made us to say, like we gotta do this show, like is there a way to figure out a way to do go flip yourself as like a vampire renovation show, like we need to figure this out. So and the other thing. The other thing was like you come from this like super dark set that is really only lit by like, you know, the what we do in the shadows. Actual set, house and all that stuff is like the darkest set we've ever been on. And then the goal and the point was to make these scenes so bright and like a stark opposite to that. And so we've been on the stark set for so long and all of a sudden you start shooting these like big, wide open like sawing boards in a white garage and everything super bright and pull off your blindfold in front of House and getting people to jump around, and it was so funny. I think they filmed like the other thing is they were this is not much. They wanted to get things exactly right. There's a shot in the show open of our fake where I'm putting my foot on a shovel and pushing it...

...into dirt, and I think we, I think we did that like twenty times, because they're like Nope, that's not looking like and I'm like, I'm doing the best I can. I don't know if I'm doing this right. They're like, it's not you, we just need like it has to hit this beat in the song and it has to do this thing like this, and that's how much they were focused on trying to make this look exactly like its own real show. And I had a friend to tell me who's done reality shows like this, householding shows. They're like who, who? Did they get to make that show open, because that's like every show open we do for our show. And I'm like, Oh my God, they just they just literally nailed it, like the handshake into the Super Sloo backup. They just they nailed it. So it goes. It goes to back to something that Chris Rock said a long time ago about director Adam McKay and he said, you know, could Adam McKay make any one of Steven Soderberg's movies? And he was like yeah, he probably do a great job of it and it's evidence of all the movies that McKay has made. And then he said could Steven Soderberg make anchor man? It's like hell no, it takes to be a great comedy director. You have to have so many jobs. So can the wonderful directors of what we do in the shadows make a really close approximation of one of these like houseworking shows? Yeah, they're they're incredible and they did it. I don't think the people who direct like flip that flip or flop could do well an episode of what we do in the shadows. That was a great pull, by the way, and a great comparison between the two. Yeah, rebels Beth. Do you have any other questions? Uh No, thank you. It was absolutely perfect and it was such a perfect like almost satire of like these programs. So it was great to hear how much thought I went into it. So thank you so much for answering my question and I hope you left a lovely day. Oh you're awesome. That was so sweet. Than so much. I mean it's so true the fact that you guys have not watching an episode, like I don't know how you were able to nail it so spot on without having had watched multiple seasons, let alone a single episode, of property brothers. They're great. I mean they're kind of crazy, it's and it's crazy like how successful they are, like their success, like we'll never see the success level that they have, like it's just nowhere near but deep down inside. And both of those guys wish they did comedy and both of those guys, you both are so successful in your own right. I think it really depends. You know, I think you guys are using as your metric here. Well. Well, so let me say this. Like honestly, getting to do this show and getting to do a memorable episode of this show like this one and getting to be a part of their universe. That is, as far as we're concerned, like the apex of success. So we are feeling very good about what we're doing right now and we feel very fortunate and like Super Lucky, amazing. Thank you so much. And onto our next question from I'm just gonna say yeah, him, hi, hi. Right. So I just want to take some that's on the episode. Um, and then also I was going to ask would you ever commit to a bit as much assignment is? Oh my God, the long play that he did for that thing is I mean that was the other. So that was the other. I mean this is again why what we do in the shadows is such an unbelievable show, is that they take a bit that it's like, it's not like this this housewipping show came out of left field, like the reason the house was in disarray was because they went overseas for a year, for however long they were gone. So then the house just went into disrepair. And then you're like, well, the only show that is soothing baby Colin Robinson, is this weird house flipping show, which, by the way, that makes...

...sense in the grand scheme of things. And then you're like, well, of course that they're gonna have to come and flip the house and renovate it, and it all kind of makes sense. So in in that one way that that could have been the closed circle, but the fact that it was the long play of Nick Kroll's character, Simon the devious, who just wanted the hat back and to us, when we read the whole idea that he thought of the show, found somebody else who didn't who didn't know construction, like even okay, so even that detail. This is again why this show is so funny, the fact that they could have just said it's you, Simon the devious, yes, I tricked you by being the host of the show, but they had to like bring up all like this is why it's so funny, all these details, and then someone's like, why didn't you just get someone who had construction experience? And then he made the joke about how it's about the factor in the chemistry. That whole back and forth is such a funny detail and it show it was like an extreme, like extra amount of work that this guy had to do to try and pull this thing off. Would we ever do that in the long play of our lives like I wish I had that kind of stuff. Yes, that to us is like because we love doing bits with our friends and like. That, to US brings us so much joy that to do the long play bit is like the greatest, greatest overall sort of joke. You can play. Yeah, GAM how is that? Thank yeah, that's great. Thank you for of course, thanks so much for asking your question. All right, we have way more fun and now we're on to half man, half skeleton. Thank you. I had more like a comment and a question. Um, I wanted to commend you. Physically wa the really watched it the episode today, knowing that the deal was coming up, and honestly just do mandelisms used Simon as especially as we got closer to the veal. It was really impressive. I was like, Oh, this is obvious. How did we not see it? We didn't see because it was designed that way. Um, did you get to work with Nicole uh much coming into that reveal and how was that? So we know Nick for we've known him for years, and we did. We gotta find this Jay we have we have to put it out into the world. We did a web series with Nick Cole years ago called layers. It's the dumbest I love this series so much, where he played an agent who represents other Hollywood agents and we played his publicists, and the whole thing was that we were trying to make a web series about him and put him in situations that are good for the web series but terrible for his business. So as the ratings go up for the and his web series gets watched, it's ruining his life as an agent. So it was so much fun. So we've like we've worked with him a lot over the years and we know him really well and so of course I loved him on this show and I spent a lot of time, I mean, being really familiar with the show, kind of understanding who he was on the show and why he like. The thing that makes him so funny is that there's like he's like almost really too tired for what he's doing at all times, which I think right. It's like it's like a sweaty, exhausted such a funny like. There's such a there's such a he did a great job shaping this character. So it's it's easy and Randy, of course, didn't want to give it away. I'll speak for you in a second because I was watching you, rand he wanted to hint add it and then I think it really comes out at the end when they're in the closet and Randy's like deal with it, and he really why. That's a phrase that Simon has said, I believe,...

...an earlier episode, right ran. Yeah, are just the one on those lines that it was like, please make it super simony when you say that, and then it's like, wait a minute, what's going on here? And then boom it's him. It definitely definitely came across. He's got like the specific way that he moves that I was catching as well. It was awesome. I love to see that websities, if you guys can find it, we got we gotta put it out there. You would love it. I mean great. Who else was in it? Like Andy Daly was in it, Ja. Who else did it? Jason Nash, Andy Daily? There are a lot of funny people in that. Oh my gosh, please put it kind of reminds of another nick PARLA, classic publicity right, because he's he's like obviously in trench and very knowledgeable about these areas of the entertainment industry and he's the perfect person to do like satire on them. Exactly perfect, with a little bit of cross dressing. Sure. Thanks so much. Half man, half skeleton. Do you have any other questions? That was it. Thank you so much. I loved the episode. Thank you. Thank you so much. Alright, we're inviting our next person on Guad. You are back. If you'd like to mute and ask your question. Hello again, I'm finally off work. Okay. So, since you guys are also fans of the show, are you guys like keeping up with the season, and, if so, do you guys like you know what's going to happen? Are you also like waiting like the rest of us? Great Question. We are keeping up with the season. Um, and I don't know what. We don't know. We don't know what. Yah, yeah, we don't know. I'm like super exciting. It's like we were now, we were part of this thing, and in a great way, and now we get to just enjoy the rest of it. How it how it plays itself out, we don't know, which is good. They do a good job of keeping it sort of under wraps. So like other than like the night market. But that episode was before ours, so we got to see a little bit of that being shot. Other than that, like we didn't know anything of the episodes after us. So, yeah, I'm like everybody. I get to go back to being a fan and watching what happened. You get to cry at the end of the season like the rest of us. Oh my God, yes, but then we'll be crying for another reason, because we're gonna be like secretly wanting to come back so hard next year. But, you know, like we'll be crying something to happen, the resurrection of Toby, the Resurrection of all I'm saying is that Jesus was the carpenter and they brought him back so they to be able to bring me back to Jesus was the carpenter. They brought him back. That's a joke we could make in this show. Jesus was a carpenter. I mean it's your vampire show, toby and there it can be best friends. I mean, come on, come on, toby and the Baron. That's hilarious. I would watch that as a sitcom. Okay, that's all I had to ask. I actually have to go home now. Question back. Thanks for going back, no problem, and happy time off work. Yes, I love it. It's a vamp hire show. Resurrection, like death, is not real. On a vampire show. Anybody can come back any way, shape or form, like you never know, what if glaslow like misses the show so much, or what if, you know, uh, what if nandor misses it's so much that he wants to resurrect him so that they can like redesign other stuff? Like why not? Totally, why not? I mean, I've seen one life to live that. It's been weirder. Sure, uh t staffer is back and I'm wondering if t staffer is going to ask the question that they put in the comments, since, since you're able to wear the hat in the final, like ending scene of the episode, I have to know if that bloody cursive hat actually has a prop which is asshole on it on the inside. I mean yes, and it's I mean it's designed. It is so uncomfortable to where it's like so heavy. Do you don't remember, like when you went to the dentist and as a kid and they put and you get your x rays and they put that like super...

...heavy apron on you so that you don't get radiation of a bit like that's how heavy the hat looks. So like I wore it just in that one scene. I'm like, Oh my God, this thing is like twenty pounds and it's made from like real leather or yeah, it's the crazy thing is it does feel like skin. So the more you put it on your head, the more you're like this could be like a witch's asshole. It's ridiculous. Like how gross did it? It's a gross half. It's a great question. Awesome. Thank you so much. Al Right, and now we have on rock lobster. You are on if you'd like to a mute and ask your questions. I'm sorry, it's rock rock high. I'm just a second rock, but it's an even more awesome and I was just wondering if there were any really funny moments that, you surprise, didn't like it to the final cut on what they were. I mean we, I thought, the scenes we were doing with the people in the in our fake show, we're getting really funny, like we were. We were improvising and going so far off and like breaking down like rocky movies when describing to this woman about like what her marble connor marble conner tops needed to be, and we were getting into arguments and just we were going nuts and those little scenes and they were really funny and I thought maybe more of those would make it in just being on the TV and just you'd catch a snippet of us being so stupid. But, like Randy said, maybe we can save that for another day, for the actual someday, like do all it'll be like better call Saul. It's like a spin off where there was a hundred and fifty episodes of this house flipping show where one of us as a vampire. Yeah, I mean the things that I mentioned earlier, like the joke about we're just like calling out, you know, cameraman and whatnot, like every scene we did. So the beauty of the show is you basically the way they shoot it is they you get it exactly as it's written in the script so that it can be seen as that way and for time purposes, that's what it is. And then, you know, Yana would be like, all right, let's just have fun, do a fun run, go whatever you want, and those moments were like insane because she would not yell cut and you just would keep going and then finally she would yell cut and she would crack up. So it was it was wonderful because you just were like okay, we're in the reality of this moment and I don't want to stop, I just want to keep going. And when you know who your character is on two levels. We know that this is like a very Christian, rocky type guy and underneath it all, you know it's signing the devious. You know exactly how you want. You can improvise these people so as this guy. So those moments were just great. When I'd like dig into the minutia the people, there was a moment where we were like I was taking stuff out of the out of the van, as they're starting to do the renovations, and they kept the camera on the end and I just start talking to all the crew people. Hey, Jeff, how is it going? How's your girlfriends? You know, I mean like asking all these questions as you've got to get out of here, your knuckle ahead, and like we just I just kept going. The camera's on. They're like, we may not use this and it was just part of a montage, but that was Super Fun. That was so much fun. Apparently they're going to release a whole lot of the of the stuff that's not been included at some point, so maybe we'll say it. Yeah, yeah, thank you, thank you. Thanks so much. Rock loops are rock great name. I know I missed the second rock to the first time. That was that was my fault. Hopefully we redeemed ourselves here. Okay, a fun question from uh, not so um appropriate user names. So we'll just say bleep and Fart. Humor asks which score would win in a wrestling match. Oh my God, Jeez, I don't know. I mean we we've stopped physically fighting each other. Thankful.

Thankfully, we, we, we stopped that. In our old day, we never come to the to the finishing of a fight like we would always like when we fought as kids. It's a good question and I don't know the answer. Like when we fought as kids, we would just get tired of fighting and then just be like what are we even doing, and then stop. That was it every time, and that's how we'd make up. Just exhaustion help us get over a fight. But yes, I don't I don't know that either of US would win. You know who would win if we in a fight between the two of US America? I think we should put that on pay per view. I love it, but I also feel like that's good for your mom, because she never really had she could just let it kind of Peter out. It's like running a couple of golden retrievers, so like they'll tire themselves up. Oh, that's amazing. I'm I'm curious, Um, since you got to go on this amazing practical set, did you take any souvenir from this at home with you? That would have been great, like a raccoon having sex under a chair. I mean there's so many great things to choose from. Home is where the home is, where the wine is? I want that to me. When when caons character is like, is home really where the wine like? When he sincerely asked that question, I had a mouthful of Lacroix that I literally spit. I did an old school Jerry Lewis Spit tank laugh like liquid everywhere. I would want. That signs pretty class. That could have taken it, because you can always put out a new one, but damn it, we should have taken that. Look. I'm happy to do a quick etsy search the next time we get someone on stage to see if that's available, because I'm sure it is. It has to be. It has to be and will send one to you. Perfect all right, it really, really was awesome. Thank you both so much for taking the time and dropping by. You clearly have so many fans here on Reddit. Please come back any time. We'd love to, and we should say to all these guys, you know, we should mention this other thing that we're doing because we're so proud of it. If you want to see more of like hey, I want to see more of what you guys do. We just launched the show. So we did a show on ESPN classic years ago that is like the show that people really remembers, for it's like mystery science theater but with old weird sporting events. So it's a running commentary of jokes and all that stuff, and we it was called cheap seats and everybody was like, man, when are you gonna bring that show back? What are you gonna bring it back? And so we did just bring it back. It's called the new show is called the nosebleeds and if you go to our instagram, we're at squad brothers. There's a little link in the youtube and it's US making fun of the old weird footage from the early days of UFC and there are sketches in it. Tony Hale, Andy Richter, John Ham, Marylynn, Rice Cub Rob Cordreing, such funny people who helped us do this show. Um. And it's called the nosebleeds and I just think we're so proud of it. So if anybody's like, Hey, I want to see what else you guys are doing, check that out. Thank you so much, because you all have done so much. I mean just like going through your IMDB. It's quite the scroll. So I encourage everyone to check out the scar brothers definitely on what we do in the shows, but also in the nosebleed. Um. And thank you guys again and I hope you have an amazing rest of your day and I hope everyone else who's listening does too. Yeah, thank you. Thank you. We had a great time too. So you did a great oh my gosh, if I stop it, that's so nice. You're far too kind, just making my day slash weeks last year. Hopefully we'll, hopefully we'll do this again after another episode with tolby and brands someday, maybe in the future. Crossed, yes, Cross your finger is for that resurrection...
