Chinese Take-Out

Everybody loves Chinese food but it's so hard to understand the guy/girl behind the counter. Yeah, I can go to P.F. Chang's Asian Bistro but that's water-down chinese. The best Chinese food is the ghetto take-out restaurants where the people working there look like they haven't taken a day off in decades...that's who I want making my food.

Hope you enjoyed our piece about how the Chinese really feel about their customers. Do keep in mind, this is only our opinions and not all Chinese people speak prefect english behind your backs.

We shot the short with a split screen. This was also done in two takes and shot the same day as "The next Chuck Norris?".

If you like what we're doing...let us know. If you hate what we're doing...let us know.

The next Chuck Norris?

Let the revolution begin! The first video is up for all the world to see. "The next Chuck Norris" stars Jeremy Davis as the 20-time IMF World Champion John Johnson. IMF stands for "International Midget Federation".

John Johnson has an extreme hatred of midgets and he wants to show the world his fighting tactics for protecting yourself against the "crazy little animals".

Some of his unique moves are...

1. Iron Cross
2. the Buckler
3. the Spackler
4. Decapitator
5. Hammer of God

We shot the footage on beta cam in a Public Access Studio in Santa Monica. It was a three camera set-up with Mark Katz setting up the lights and picking out all the music. The 70's mustache is real and takes 3 days to grow. After a 10-second sound check, Jeremy Davis nailed the 7 minute monologue in one take.

Hope you enjoyed it!
