Okay so we missed a month. It’s a bummer, too ’cause we had a really kick-ass sketch prepared but we lost some data and need to do a bit of re-recording with Dorothy who is increasingly unavailable right now (as are many of us). But we DO have something for you this month and it’s pretty AWESOME if I do say so myself.
You never know when comedic influence is going to hit. Recently, I was at a robotics meeting and one of my students and I were working on a programming assignment and he wondered aloud, quite randomly, if it were possible to download a car. Of course those of us around him thought it was quite absurd but he proceeded to look it up and about 20 minutes later, had a very similar pitch to the one Paul gives in this film. So of course, I got on the horn to Chris as soon as I could and asked him to work his magic. What resulted was (as usual) comic genius. The next phase was a wee bit trickier. Casting and shooting would not come easy.
We had to get the right people on this sketch. I was okay playing the VP and Paul was the obvious choice for the pitch man but being that Paul and Chris are twins, it’s tough to put them in the same sketch. This is where our longtime friend, Alan came in. It just so happened that Alan and I went down to the Boston studio the same weekend for a number of reasons, one of which was to help Chris and Hilary move in downstairs. Paul and I instantly decided that it was a filming weekend and we were off. There was still one more character that needed filling though. And with that, I’m proud to introduce you to one of my best friends, Libby Kamen. Although she only has a short cameo in this film, we hope that in the future we’ll be able to schedule her for more stuff! For now, though, enjoy this wonderfully silly piece, “Downloading A Car.”
