Seven. DoubleOh Seven.

That grew on me.

Impressively, it's not chronological. The person composed this thing.

And do we find out why 3 are omitted?

"*technically there were 196 but three of them coincided with other loud noise/speaking that made them unintelligable in this short form context."

On so many of them all I can here is "double oh ssssss."

HEAR. Ugh.

...as it should be. These are only the 'doubleOhs', not the 'sevens'.

doubleohdoubleoh.

It impresses on one that Desmond Llewellyn said "Double Oh Seven" more than anybody else in film history (because Q refers to him that way more than anyone else in the series).

Strangely therapeutic. If you close your eyes, and forget the context, you might almost imagine it's a group of people saying: "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

Someone should do the same with 'Oh, James.' (Or maybe not.)

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

Be that as it may, "The Wire" taught us that "Police police police police police, police police police."

This became absurdly funny about two-thirds of the way in.

Well *raises eyebrow* that was a lot of 'o's...

I'm more partial to every instance of the word "Captain" in Season 5 of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Is it just me, or are the clips ordered from longest to shortest?

The sequence from 0:16 to 0:20 is especially pleasing.

Why are all of those Englshmen saying "double oh" when it should be "double naught"?

This is interesting, but I'm waiting for the dubbleohstep remix.

Did anyone else pick up hints of The Jamies "Summertime" in there? I bet you could autotune these clips to make the characters sing anyone of a number of songs, but that one seems almost built in.

Double-Oh Double-Oh Dubble-Oh Double-Oh...

Every time Judi Dench came up and looked peevishly at Bond, my heart swelled.

(to answer my own question
"

While the logic here is sound, I think they would have been better off just claiming to be all the 00's. I'm less inclined to watch an incomplete collection. Why would I watch a video of 273 of the 298 "fuck"s in Goodfellas?

I can't remember what the word "double" means anymore. I've reached saturation point.
