Video: The Electric Fence Wager (part 5)

Well, you knew what was coming.  Or, if you didn't, you weren't really paying attention to parts 1-4.  In this particular installment (which started as some sort of crazy promotion for the Eleuke Electric Ukulele) Colin finally puts his nuts where his mouth is.  Err... that didn't quite sound right.  Long story short, he puts his testicles squarely on the electric fence in my backyard.

Yes, I realize that this only barely qualifies as a ukulele video.  Meh.  You can't deny a guy a public forum from which he can humiliate his beloved kinfolk can you?

Ukulele Guy Video Responses (YAY!)

So, I'm going to just come right out and admit that I know very little about the inner workings of Youtube.  I mean, I'd always seen these so-called "Video Responses" but I guess I didn't really get it.  It seemed like something that people did to argue more with a political video or something.  Imagine my surprise when I realized that I have two Video responses to my ukulele videos!

I have pretty much been smiling for days.  Anyway, the first video response I ever got was from russelljenkinsfearn and it was actually from a little while back.  He responded to my Kala Pocket Ukulele rendition of Ween's "Help me scrape the mucus off my brain".  In all honesty, his version is better.   Doh!  Anyway, check it out:

My next video response came over this weekend.  It was posted by "TacoBum311" and it was a response to my Eleuke Electric Ukulele version of Halloween by the Misfits.  Their version also features an Eleuke (the pretty sunburst one) and they do a rocking version of the best Misfits song of all time, Hybrid Moments.  Check it out!

Like I said, I feel like a proud father or something. I know it's a little ridiculous but I can't help it. So, if you want to make my freaking day then please post a Video Response to one of my ukulele videos.

Escalating Electric Fence Wager (part 4)

Alright, we've rounded the corner on this ridiculous night of beer-drinking, trash-talking and wagering.  If you had told me, before this thing started that I would be able to get my youngest brother to put his testicles on my electric fence and all it would cost me is $20 then I would have never believed you.  This is the guy who said he wouldn't even touch it for less then $75 and that was with this hands.  Heh.

Now, I realize this has absolutely nothing to do with Ukuleles.  However, if you remember from Part 1 of the wager, I was holding my Eleuke electric ukulele.  So, I'm going to allow it.  Also, I make Colin plug in part 5 of the video, so we can tie it all together. If you are offended by drunkenness, swearing or grown men acting like idiots and talking about their genitals then this might not be the video for you.

Video: The Escalating Electric Fence Wager (part 3)

Heh, I forgot I was uploading these videos. I think there are two left and, as you can see here, the stakes are going up. This video takes places literally seconds after part 2 (where I touch the fence for the first time). What we didn't know at the time (although I suspected) was that it takes some time for the capacitor in the fence to fully charge up. So, if you touch it and then touch it again shortly thereafter, the shock isn't so bad.

So, after this video was taking, Colin decided he wasn't paying me $20 for my touching of the fence. However, we do come up with a compromise that you'll see in part 4 of the video. Let's just say that Colin attempts to "double up" by touching the fence again.... with a more sensitive part of his body. Ahhhh yeah!

You might be asking yourself, "What the hell does this have to do with Ukuleles?". Yeah, I'll admit, it's a stretch, but in part 2 of the video I was holding my Eleuke electric ukulele when I touched the fence. I say that counts. 😉

Video: CPUnit – Times Like These (EleUke 2010 Contest Entry)

Holy smokes.  These guys are real go-getters.  I had an e-mail this morning asking to post something about the video they made for the EleUke 2010 Contest.  Also it looked like they posted a video response to one of my EleUke videos (although I couldn't approve it because it wasn't in my Youtube inbox for some reason).

So, of course I checked out the video today.  Dang!  It's wicked professional looking.  These guys take ukulele contests seriously!  Anyway, give it a look and a listen.  It's a catchy little song and the giant animals are pretty great.  Best of luck in the contest, guys!
