Personally I thought the 'lego bag' idea was pretty funny. Though I am surprised Lego allowed such hi-jinks in their store that could potentially damage their image. The Mother of the minecraft kid (counting out the pieces) didn't look too impressed!
I thought the video was a bit annoying but gave it a "like" just for the shot of the PAD wall. That has got to be at least 3 times the size of our local stores!
After all,, she just stands there doing nothing....
Also, hand sanitizing the people with their hands in the brick tables is a GREAT idea, I'd be all for this becoming standard!
Oh to go pick'n'mix buying.
When I get to a LEGOLAND (which one day, my daughter and I will), it'll be bulk pick'n'mix to the max ....
Many people get a kick out of seeing other people pranked. There are many shows that do this. Some shows take it to the extreme. This was light humor, it wasn't supposed to make you drop to your knees in laughter. To be fair some of you find a humorous comment to be so funny you claim to have spit your drinks on your keyboard. I haven't found any comment on here to make me do that.
Now that was funny.
As far as the humor goes, as I said it was somewhat funny. UK humour is more what resonates with us Aussies though.
That said I get a bit of flack from freinds as I actually thought the US version of The Office was better. :/
I enjoyed The US Office, but it was more of a comedy soap than the UK one. The UK one was meant to be completely cringeworthy, something missing in the US one.The good thing about the US version was that it was re-written for a different audience and not just remade with the same scripts.
Whereas the US version of The Inbetweeners, that didn't seem to work so well.
You don't want to spoil the scene by revealing the cameras in the store too often, but they should have a producer on standby to walk in if the situation really goes south and reveal the truth.
As a general rule, they won't use the footage of anyone who doesn't sign a release. There have simply been too many lawsuits over the years otherwise. Usually the show offers something "gift card, money, etc." to obtain the release.
The producers contacted him and asked him if he wanted to be on the show, it was about 2 hours of shooting plus setup in his business (he has a retail toy store). And yes, he was paid for his time. :)
They did not tell him what to say, his opinion was not scripted (the producers told him to honestly evaluate it and give his real opinion), but it was setup several weeks in advance, so there is a huge gap between filming the storage lockers and the visits to the experts.
It is worth noting that it was filmed multiple times to get all the angles and to make sure they can edit it into a professional looking show. The sound from the actors voices often comes from a different shot than the video used, so the audio and video often have been shot an hour or more apart.
It is like Pawn Stars and other such shows, just meant to be fun entertainment.
