Video Reenactment Contest!

Reenact an amusing or awkward conversation using the site Xtranormal.com and win a glorious prize! Once you’ve created the video, email the link to [email protected] with the word “Contest” somewhere in the subject line (it’s not necessary to port it to YouTube). The winner will be chosen by the peanut gallery.

Rules:

1. Video must be shorter than 3 minutes and 30 seconds. I want to see impact, not boring drivel.
2. It must be based on a real life situation. I have an advanced bullshit detector so don’t try to trick me.
3. It must be received by noon Wednesday, September 15th.

Helpful Hints:

1. Use the basic characters of each environment so you don’t have to pay anything.
2. Use pause insertions to create a realistic dialogue.
3. Click the Magic Camera button so you don’t have to manually set the camera for each verbal exchange.
4. If you don’t have any ideas, go out with a couple ballsy openers and see which bar you get kicked out of where it takes you. Write down the dialogue afterwards (or punch it in your phone) so you don’t forget the good parts.

I will judge videos based on humor, social awareness, humor, likelihood of authenticity, and humor. It’s okay to be rejected in your video, as that will score high on the humor and authenticity scales. The site also allows foreign languages, so if you want to do an international reenactment in Spanish or Portuguese, I will be happy to review it. In fact, if I get enough foreign reenactments, I’ll create a runner-up prize.

The winner will receive… hold on to your seat… a paperback copy of my book A Dead In Paraguay!!!

I’ll narrow the entries down to a handful and then open the floor for viewer feedback. Your video should be a Roosh-pleaser first, and then a crowd-pleaser second.

Let’s go over two well-done reenactments. The first is from Roissy.

This video is very realistic, since Roissy wears blazers in real life (if I’m not mistaken he also has a t-shirt with a fish on it). The masculine woman depicted in the video is how the average D.C. lawyer acts. I felt like I was watching real life.

Our next video is from forum member klasik, who recently asked if he should raw dog his MILF girlfriend. He’s in the hat…

I don’t think I’ve heard the term “chubby chaser” before, but I like it.

If you’re an anti-social creep who doesn’t interact with human beings, I’ll accept a soliloquy (I actually spelled that correctly on my first attempt). The following video is titled “Black men do well almost anywhere.” It’s adapted from a recent blog comment.

I leave you with one final tip: the best videos involve some degree of pain or awkwardness. If you have any questions, post it in the comments so everyone can see the answer. Good luck.

I haven’t had any success with the Magic Camera. It kept shifting to a view where both my characters were obscured by something that looked like a piano.

I have a funny one, unfortunately the girl was deaf/near mute so I can’t really reenact it with the teddy bears.

Hilarious as usual.

…although I’m rather disturbed by the video from klasik — is this seriously the type of conversations happening in the club scene (in DC?) these days? Pitiful.

The last video had me rofl. I remember that comment; looks like Roosh and I have the same taste in humor.

The problem with these video reenactments is that they don’t capture vocal inflections and body language, which are just as important when it comes to chatting up a girl. Ten-to-one there’s some clueless creeper who will see these videos and go off to run the same lines on a girl in a Stephen Hawking-esque monotone.

Only two characters per movie?

Damn, I have an interaction where I was flirting with a girl who was loving it that was interrupted by a gay dude with the social aptitude of a piece of broccoli that would be perfect.

I’ll need to see if anything else comes close.

Funny.

Haha..that last one is some racist egotistical bullshit though. I’m sure its true some of the time, for some black guys, but its also true a lot of the time for some white and Latino guys. He’s been watching too many music videos, or is a big fish in a small pond where he lives.

I’ve got one on the way. I wish we could do more than 2 characters.

That Nick Manning video was hilarious.
