New Short "Get That Job" Now Available!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/Z5pkXQioh30?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/Z5pkXQioh30?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Get That Job is an instructional film that teaches adults all the secret tips for landing a high paying job. First and foremost, if a potential employer asks if you actually needed to watch a film called Get That Job in order to learn how to get a job, strongly deny having ever even heard of Get That Job.

Our main protagonist is a Ginger Walrus. After receiving his GED from Night School (Motto: Show Your Probation Card for half off science classes), he wants a job. The problem is, where to start? So he goes to a library to look for books about resumes, which is really what you should be doing instead of watching a worthless short film like Get That Job.

Eventually, he lands the big interview with a boss who is in no way overcompensating for his baldness by growing a ridiculous beard. Will our hero smooth talk his way into a dream job? Or will he mistakenly inform the delusional man interviewing him that he looks like the worst Wooly Willy variation imaginable in a suit. Join Mike, Kevin and Bill to find out!

Just curious, is there a reason why the audio files in the MPEG-2 files are WAV instead of MP2 now?

There was a discussion about formats and that was what was settled on for the mpeg for various reasons - widest compatibility over devices and device streaming drove that.

Okie-dokie, thanks! I level short volume to match other short volumes (for my DVD compilations), and I think this actually saves me a conversion step!

Just watched the short. Hilarious!!! I expected Perc! Pop! Sprinkle! to be the highlight of the evening, but this one cracked me up even more!

By the way, does the guy from the short
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
look familiar to anyone else? I'm sure he just looks like someone else, but both me and my wife thought he looked familiar....

Looks a 1970s Chuck Liddell.
I survived the San Diego Comic Con 2010 Hall H stabbing.

I still giggle at Kevin replying, "Ginger walrus!"
