The Biggest gaming loser gets the dreaded Trophy of Shame in this competition between Metal Jesus, Drunken Master Paul and his wife Liz. We play a motorcycle racing game with the crappy Playstation Glove as well as the infamous Barbie’s Horse Adventures on the original XBOX.
Warning: This video contains swearing, drinking and references to Donkey Shows. It may not be suitable for young children. Although, let’s be honest: if they have access to the internet and YouTube, they’ve probably seen much worse 😉
Behind the Scenes: As you might imagine, we don’t plan out anything on these I HATE U episodes. Paul & Liz showed up knowing almost nothing about what was planned, so we setup 3 cameras and a laptop to capture the footage and then just press Record. What you see on screen is pretty much what happened. No second takes… no script. As you can imagine, 3 cameras capturing HD video and audio for about an hour creates a HUGE file to edit. All told with all the temp files, my Final Cut project was over 300GB!!
What makes these videos fun to produce is the green screen interview B-Roll that we shoot AFTER we played the games. Basically we ask each other “What were you thinking when Metal Jesus brought out the Barbie game?” “Why did you think you were going to win the motorcycle game?” etc… Those moments are nice to mix into the video because they help the flow of the video but also help cut down what was essentially 1 hour of gameplay to around 15 minutes of highlights. Also Liz was incredibly silly that night and gave me a TON of wacky footage to mix into the video.
As for the Jar Jar Jar… make sure and watch the previous I HATE U episode with John Hancock where we play the Star Wars Jar Jar board game…and then light it on fire! (linked here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N0NNHMMeA8)
