Thanks again to all of you who stopped by to see us today! I wanted to hit upon some other great questions that came up:
carlos silva: “What’s the next musical?”
We’re currently finishing this Yoshi song, which will definitely be out this month! We haven’t confirmed which song we’re doing after it, but there are at least two we’re talking about with other channels now! One may involve some Call of Duty finally…
minecraftminer11: “When is the next musical?”
Our schedule is tough to keep in order, BUT… we’re still *supposed* to post one musical every month. So May’s will hopefully be up either Saturday the 11th or Saturday the 18th.
PikachuAndMew: “Are you guys going to be something for RE’s birthday this year?”
Absolutely! In fact, we’re hoping to have some cool, fresh faces attending this year’s festivities! Our birthday, by the way, is JUNE 8!
joemorrone: “You should do a combined project with The Warp Zone and or hiimrawn.”
Both of those have actually been discussed with our network. We’ll see!
AsculaTheNinga: “If someone were to play one of your songs as a fan video would you prefer Super monkey ball opening, Peach, or sonic?”
I’d lean toward Sonic. That’d sound great on orchestra bells! Then again, the other two you picked are perfect for them, too! Although let’s be real, “Lolcats: The Musical” was clearly meant for a metal remix, if someone wants to get on that…
BEHIND THE SCENES:
booklover78910: “Peter sang the Medic’s part in the “Medic!”, why did he not act in the video?”
Like many of our videos, the initial idea was set to star Peter. Our resident TF2 expert, however, informed us that I looked much closer to the character. We were very determined to use Peter’s operatic voice, though, so we ultimately worked out an interesting premise that would allow Peter’s singing to mix with my acting. The best of both worlds, so we hoped!
petertwnsnd: “You guys obviously love Nintendo, but you’ve also done a few songs from non-Nintendo games like Portal and Team Fortress 2. Do you guys focus on Nintendo games or is it just whatever games you like?”
Generally, the only criteria when picking musicals is how good the idea is for one… aka how badly we want to do it. Lately, though, we’ve jumped Nintendo games toward the front of the list, since we’ve committed to a Smash Bros. musical before the next game comes out!
PikachuAndMew: “How old do you have to be to join or be apart of RE?”
We don’t really have an age limit, per se — our youngest actor so far was 7 when he appeared on the channel. All it really takes is a parent or guardian to make sure you don’t get (us) into trouble!
Britney Smith: “Where do you get all of your onesies from?”
I assume you’re referring to the Pikachu outfit, which is, indeed, actually pajamas. One of those can be found in some mall stores (look for Japanese imports) or much easier online. We’ve also pulled some body suit costumes from dance gear shops in the past. Again, the internet may be your best friend!
PikachuAndMew: “Who as been the Beard the most? I think it’s Dave Bloom.”
The Beard has been The Beard the most, definitely. Wait- you mean who’s ~impersonated~ The Beard the most? Yeah, I think it’s Dave Bloom. That guy’s infatuated with him.
THE SMASH BROTHERHOOD:
GinisTheDog: “If Snake was killed, what will happen next?”
Snake hasn’t been killed, although you may have to wait to find out the next part of his story…
iPsychoMax: “Who’s your favourite Super Smash Brothers character?”
I try to play every character evenly, so I always choose Random. But anyone who’s played against Peter knows he spams Yoshi nonstop. If you’re asking more broadly, I think Kirby’s the best representative Smash Brother — the game fits best in his universe!
JUST FOR FUN:
PikachuAndMew: “What’s Sparrow’s Favorite Musical she’s been in? I really want to know!”
It was a tough call, but after much deliberation, she settled on “Pikmin: The Musical.” She mentioned loving The Eevee Song most, where she got to play a Mudkip, but I told her that didn’t count.
TheNiiKnight: “Is every day kind of like Halloween for you?”
Sometimes it feels like it… I wish it was!
SuperWidgetMaster: ”Where did AJ learn his dance skills as seen in Rhythm Thief? Very nimble! :)”
Thanks, but it’s a lot of make believe. Outside of a tap and ballroom class, I haven’t been trained anything! So I guess from watching enough movies where dancers know what they’re doing? :P
IDM4Sunlights: “Do you think you”l be part of the ACRacebest”Bronies react” video of the season 4 premiere ?”
Nobody’s asked us to. Plus, so far as Brony web-celebs, we’re pretty far down the list…
PikachuAndMew: “When will you two (A.J. and Peter) do the dance contest you said you wanted to find out last month?”
Whenever Peter stops getting medical procedures that keep him from getting jiggy with it!
DarsstarVideos: “Will you guys carry around a towel on Towel Day?”
Or wear one? Possibly.
supersonsha: “Can I learn Beard?”
Given only one creature in the universe actually uses it, I don’t think there are any courses currently available to teach. But our plans to one day post instructional videos to teach basic Beard language may still become a thing.
TheNiiKnight: “AJ do you like dressing up as Pinki pie, pikachu, or Yoshi the best?”
I love all of them! Pikachu is easiest — you can fall asleep wearing it! Yoshi is cool and casual, but can be tricky to sit in… And Pinkie Pie ~can~ be a little embarrassing at first, but often makes the most friends… even some who don’t like Ponies! I plan to keep wearing all of them! ^_^
Thanks for answering my questions guys!
If you haven’t checked these guys out already I high recommend it! You won’t be disappointed!
