    Exclamation Accident Ha Ha Ha - Accident advert parody.

    My new video, a parody of the 'Have you had an accident that wasn't your fault' adverts that you see all the time on TV.
    Also, this video is a prime example of why you need good lighting (yeah I struggled). Also with a little venture into a blue screen, which didn't quite work 100% but we learn from everything don't we :

    Nice one Clay. You are very good in front of the camera. You already know the weak points of the video.

    The trouble with parody is when you choose a subject that is almost a parody of it's self it's harder to make it funny. I would have liked to see the guy juggling chain saws, while fire walking, while eating glass AND swilling it down with acid. Then stub his toe and blame it on the council not fixing the pavement. Oh hang on I think that's a real one.

    Any way I'm sure you know what I mean. You did a good job with it. Good graphics as well.

    Good point. (There was a good skit on these ads recently on TV where the premise was "Have you had an accident whilst making accident claim adverts?")

    Nevertheless it's a funny short and the tag is caustic as all satire should be. It probably say something about how used we've become to these ad that it took a second or so before what you said sank in.

    Nice One.

    The accident adverts themselves are so awful that any skit is worth doing. You know the mistakes in your video, so I won't repeat them but it's still worth watching.

    Thanks for the comments. It's true though these adverts are so awful it's quite easy to take the mickey.
