Kind of takes awhile to get to the punchline, however, very Funny at the end. Maybe cut out a few sec's of the disappointed people in the beginning...But obviously, if you got the gig, they must have liked your commercial.

Nerd in black t-shirt is exactly the kind of heckler I envision these losers to resemble. heh, heh.
...Mommm! Surprised

You played the muscle well (you have a knack for being easily identified in all your work by the way) but overall it doesn't work as a spot.

It's way too long. The entire opening with the reactions has nothing to do with the heckler character and they really aren't necessary at all. They feel tagged on there for...well...no reason. I think people can sufficeintly get the joke without them.

Even worse, it's not that funny.

Not that I'm trying to sympathize with the heckler or anything like that.

It's literally not funny...at all. Any of it. The intent was to make me laugh and it didn't even make my lip curl into anything that could remotely constitute a smile.

Since its primary function was supposed to be comedy, personally I guess it just failed abyssmally for me.

Decently shot though, sort of...I mean the angles were okay. Lighting seemed a little non-existent...maybe that's just YouTube though.

hey chas, guess what- it is funny. read the comments. i havent deleted any negative comments either. its funny because its true. its poking fun at all the people out there who have nothing better to do than to $h!t on other people's efforts. and so far, it seems to be getting nothing but positive response.

i guess you cant identify with the humor in it as you probably have not been on the receiving end of a troll attack, though you have indeed been on the giving end.

too bad you didnt get the humor. that aint my fault. but whatever- i still got paid.

I'm sorry but the bad acting completely took me out of it. The lead "nerd" was way too over the top.

But it seemed like that's what you were going for, so maybe it just didn't click with me.

Given the charicature of a 'troll' that you've created and presented here, you can't possibly put me into that demographic at all.

well clearly you arent squirrely or fat with long stringy hair and a horrible lisp.

the concept of the troll is that he looks for the s#!t in the shoe. he purposely lashes out at people and hides behind the safety of his computer. because we all know if he were having a face to face conversation, he would be a little more diplomatic.

so if you can confidently say that you have never intentionally done the aforementioned, then by all means, you're not a troll.

but like they say, "on every block there's always that one nutty family that everyone else can't stand. and if you don't know who that family is on your block, chances are, its your family."
