So the Boston bomb squad members are now riding Segways? Maybe budget cuts were one of the repercussions for mistaking Cartoon Network’s marketing ploy for a bomb threat.

This was our first, and possibly our last, “original” video. Feel free to poke fun at my beyond-cheesy script, and Ben’s video editing and photoshop skills. Whether you liked it or not, we’d love to know 😉

    In case you were wondering, those are our voices (but enhanced digitally … mine to sound deeper and more newscaster-like, Ben’s to be nerdier).

    Overall, I’m only half-pleased with the results. My script really was pretty bad … particularly the last half. I guess this is why I’m not a news copywriter.

    Hey, that was cute. I live in Boston but was out of town when all the craziness happened with the electronic signs on the bridges.

    I liked it! It wasn’t perfect, but if you keep working at this you will get better.

    Good luck, and don’t give up!

    Well, the Benjamin Dover part was funny.

    That was bad. Don’t ever do that again.

    I have spoken. Move on with your life.

    Botunda – thanks for being honest!

    Rhea/fluffman, glad you enjoyed. Most people had more fun laughing at my corniness / bad editing than anything else 😉

    That was a good one!

    Those crazy bombsquad guys and their outfits were a riot!! Loved it! The stand-up gyro bike takes the cake 😀
