Way back in prehistoric 2005, five of us gathered in Brisbane and had a great deal of fun filming a surreal mockumentary sketch show.  Hours of footage were flown back to Western Australia, compiled into the Greatest Trailer That Ever Trailed, then stashed in the director’s bottom drawer, where they presumably remain to this day.

Lo!  With the recent chance discovery of a long lost test reel and some painstaking restoration work in Windows Movie Maker, this magnum opus can finally take its rightful place as the literal Citizen Kane of movies.



We at The Rubber Chicken have long considered the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon a few edits and a laugh track away from being the perfect sitcom.  Even the voice actors openly recognise villains Krang and Shredder as the classic bickering married couple.  Now if only somebody would get rid of those pesky turtles, we could finally enjoy TMNT as the romantic adventure-comedy it was clearly destined to be.

We have the technology.

If you enjoyed this video, be sure to check out some of our previous TMNT posts, including an illustrated tribute to Krang, the Turtles’ victory over Global Warming, or a warts-and-all look at their scandallous private lives.

Internet, let’s make YouTube’s vile comments section a better place.  Follow a video of your choosing with a bizarre comment – not negative, nor offensive, but simply designed to make a stranger’s day that little bit more surreal – and share your contribution with us.  For example:

Review etiquette states one shouldn’t judge outtakes as harshly as proper cinematic output. To that notion I say “balderdash”, for as this short piece of improvisational theatre proves, unscripted material can represent the purest of unfiltered artistic visions in the right hands.  And the hands of YouTube user “LalaaLou” prove very right indeed.

Following the groundbreaking double-punch of crowd pleaser Birthdayy and the introspective Tom and Katy 2, one could be forgiven for expecting this young up-and-coming auteur to scout for further untapped potential in the documentary sphere. But LalaaLou, long perceived in the YouTube community as a daring visual pioneer, is as always keen to corageously explore and map entirely new artistic landscapes.

Under this Spielbergesque directional gusto, the ensemble cast acts flawlessly as a single entity; so perfect a muse that the original vision and performance are inseparable.  One must gaze beneath the surface; beyond petty technical issues of timing and choreography, to find the poetry in this very discordance; beauty in the eye of the storm; the calm, if you will, in the chaos.  Only then does one discover the rich emotional subtext: it is not about the end product, but the journey.

Future generations might very well admire – nay, worship – this 0.38 minute manifesto as the definitive template, if not the outright final word, on Chad Kroeger commentary. I laughed. I cried. YouTube video designate elv4kGQv8EI works on every possible level, and then some more. The best independent film ever made?  Quite probably.

Comment on a YouTube video and report back to us below in our own, less vile comments section.
More reviews will be added intermittently.

Perry’s Picnic

Posted on June 28th, 2008 by Fiona Revill

Andrey: TRC’s readership is many things. One of those things is a viewership. And with that in mind, we present the first in a series of Televised Segments that you – the fans – Implicitly Demanded in the Wiki. Not only is this more evidence of how interactive, and mindful of our public we are, it’s also an embarrassing indication of our insufferable tendency to pander.

Most of all, however, it’s a highly amusing bit of collaboration with Local Celebrity Adam Pateman, whose standup comedy you can procure on YouTube, and let’s face it – probably should.

The next installment of Perry’s Picnic will be appearing as soon as you ingest this one, and if you like it, say so in the so-called Forums and we’ll see what we can do with regards to pandering some more. A higher-quality version of the vid is available on the YouTube page right under the abominably low viewer-count.



Poetry Night: Jar Jar Binks

Posted on May 22nd, 2008 by Chad McCanna

Alastair: Once more, TRC alumn and newly baptised podcast initiate Chad McCanna was kind enough to travel back in time to a 2004 poetry night to help pad out this slow, rhyme-deprived month.  Ta, love.
