Kitty, Puppy, Baby, Yeah!

As promised recently, the Levinson Brothers (Stephen and I) have tried to distill all the things we have learned through our time on the internet into one useful, intelligent youtube web series. Here’s an episode.

Our goal is to create at least one episode of Kitty Puppy Baby every day for the next year. I’d like to officially invite you on board to subscribe now to our tumblr and the Levinson Brothers Youtube Channel so that every day your inbox can be filled with the delightful messages Kitty Puppy and Baby have to offer.

Here’s one more for fun:

Discount Tire Redux: The Return of Discount Tire sans Jewfro

The awesomest thing about Poptent as a video contest hosting site is that brands can choose to make more than just one video their “grand prize winner.” In the case of our Discount Tire entry (created with MC Mr Napkins), they came back a full 14 months later and decided to purchase!

There were a few hilarious caveats, though, requiring a reshoot. One, they were hoping Zach could do something less insane with his hair. Fortunately, he got a hair cut a few months back so that was cool. And secondly, “is there a way to tone down his chest hair?” Apparently the abominable Jewish isn’t what tire companies are wanting to sell their products, so an undershirt was instituted, a reshoot was reshot, and with any luck you will begin to see this video on ESPN2 or SPEED network or something!

Before and After shot:

Zach with lots of hair. Zach with less hair.

Above, Zach's hair dominates the frame. Below, his nose and glasses take over.

The (slightly incomplete) Musical History of Milk

If you are one of the many people who turn to this site for help with your 8th grade homework assignment, and if you have been assigned to write about the history of milk – be forewarned! Watching this video will probably not help you do any better than a B+.

If, however, you are coming to fill your loving cup with milk, animation and 45 second musical ditties, boy oh BOY have you come to the right place! I was excited about working with Ross Bollinger, the pencil behind the “Pencilmation” animation videos you may have seen on youtube (or on this site). Click the picture or link below to see what we came up with: (PS – there is a voting component – if you have a Zooppa account or extra time on your hands and want to vote on this, you are cordially invited to!).

The Official HappyJoel Demo Reel [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

After 4 years of making my living by running around and doing these contests, this is what I’ve got to show for it. It makes me laugh and smile. There are definitely some video highlights missing but I tended towards recent footage because my cameras were just too grainy and shaky back in the day (that said, I’ve still included me dancing with my beloved water cooler.)

What do you think? Does this make you want to hire me?

Sandwiched Between Charlize Theron and Kittens

Noah's Ark featured on the Funny or Die homepage today.

That’s right, sandwiched between the Charlize Theron sex tape video and Kittens is “Noah’s Ark!” On the Funny Or Die homepage (click the picture to be taken to the video itself)

It’s a nice placement and hopefully it’s going to get seen and get some laughs, though I feel like the REAL secret to getting it seen would be if we could just get a few Evangelical and Jewish folks to either love or hate it. Either way, I don’t think anyone uses the “forward” button on their emails as much, so if you know people who are one or the other, send them the link!
