I must agree with the rest of the people in the thread, your pranks are really not good and a great majority of them looks fake.

And it really looks weird because some of your top videos have really few likes. Like two of of your most viewed videos have a combined 823000 hits but ONLY 94 likes/dislikes..

You'll never be Jackass. Your pranks are fake and suck.

We don't want to be Jackass, we just want to make some extra money doing something we love doing

Well try to do better because it's obvious you're failing.

Do the one where you die driving drunk.

That was the best Jackass one.

If making this kind of money is failing, then this is great

I'm always conflicted when you post videos. I understand you make money and I respect that. People make money out there in all sorts of different ways. However, and I really don't mean this offensively, but your videos are just the worst. I say that assuming you already know this and have already accepted that necessary evil in response for a paycheck.

It honestly reminds me of the Jump to Conclusions mat idea in Office Space: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRxqY4wuTHw.

I know I'm just one person but I've just stopped clicking your links altogether. I even try to limit any kind of posting in your threads because I know it just keeps your video in the cycle around here. Again though, the fact you can earn money off of what you do, I certainly won't discourage you from doing what you guys want to do. I just personally cannot vibe with your work at all. I typically like pranks and hijinks, but yours tend to be so forced that many of the necessary comedic elements are completely lost.

I sort of feel guilty even saying all of that. I suppose I'm just hoping some constructive criticism might steer you guys in a better direction. I have to believe you'd be able to earn even more money if your videos were good.

Again though, I truly don't mean any of that personally. And maybe if you guys don't feel it's broke, then it's not worth fixing. I don't know.

Well, considering that you're probably full of shit I'm guessing it's not so great. Furthermore, most of us find it funny that you think sharing 100K with multiple friends over multiple years is "this kind of money."

At least come up with a better story if you're gonna play up your fake pranks on a basketball message board. Moreover, I think I've seen nearly every episode of Tosh.o and most of Ridiculousness and I've never once seen one of your piece of shit videos.
