Even worse than the similarly titled Death Cab for Cutie song.

Ugh. The second I clicked on the link, I saw 'oldeenglish.org' in the url, and immediately regretted the hasty action of my index finger.

Then I thought "Now now... maybe they've managed to finally make a funny sketch video".

Then I watched it. And they didn't.

Yes, then i made the short "phonebooth". Yes, it blew up huge on MeFi, and the rest as they say is history!

Obnoxious and dumb. Most importantly, no sex.

Kinda dumb, but the girl is really cute, so a half-hearted thumbs up!

Much like the other Olde English one that I had seen (Gym Class) it entertained me, but it seems it could've been denser and a little less forced. But I don't know what the Olde English crew is working with, so I will simply give them praise.

short?

Almost literally unwatchable.

oh come now, fellow posters...yes, it was a little forced, but it was kinda fun, and isn't it so sweet that the effort was made and freely shared? Shouldn't that count for something, sourpusses? I felt it was more entertaining and less waste of time than most car ads...let the kids do their thing and applaud them for it. Bravo kids!

Oh come on. It's sketch comedy - it's bound to be a little forced. If you had seen this performed on the stage at a fringe festival, you would have enjoyed it.

If your time is so valuable that you can't spare a minute for freely given entertainment, why waste it snarking?

One of the countless reasons I do not attend fringe festivals. :P

It's not great, but it's not terrible either.
