Hilarious! I love it when a comedy doesn't rely on just one gag throughout but keeps throwing in stuff out of left field. The background magic show was priceless and the duelling languages. I must also echo the kudos on the use of the truck - my wife will attest that as soon as it appeared I yelled at the screen "Where did he get that truck!?!"

This one's a keeper for sure.

Dear Jay:

Uhhh...

Thank You!

Thank You!

Thank You!

Thank You!

The truck kinda made the movie. No truck = no movie. The fella who loaned it to us is a great guy and treated the whole idea as if his own child was starring in a movie! We really liked that vehicle. Brought it's heyday back in this project!

Nova Scotia... Excellent lox! And let's not forget that horrific explosion! I took two cruises to Nova Scotia and loved them both.

Hi Hugh,

Coming from the UWOL world, I am really impressed with your video! So different from what I'm used to shoot.
So funny to watch, I had a good laugh.
The agents go for a long lunch, then Santa pass away and they can't do anything about it, and in the end the agents can do magic... Hilarious!

Thank you, Trond!

This is just an attempt to make a funny, yet simple little movie, hopefully for your entertainment. Five minutes to take your mind away from your daily woes, should you have them.

Great looking short. I didn't realize that one of the spies was Japanese and speaking Japanese. So when he started speaking English, I thought man this guy really needs to work on his German accent?!@ Then after watching it again it was so obvious. Dumb me.

Overall look was great reminded me of Hogans Heroes. Fun movie to watch and very professional looking. The truck was cool. Every time I watch it, I catch something else thats great that I missed before, like the Capt's tie. Perfect sets too.

Where did you get the footage of Hitler? I may try using some historic footage for something too.

Thanks, Tom!

I found Hitler's impassioned speech on YOUTUBE.

Hugh,


Awe, so now we know the real reason behind pearl Harbor, at last.


I really liked the majic guy in the back ground, added some extra depth to the film and some humor.

When the truck pulled up I thought keeping the windows dark without seeing what was inside a rather nice shot!!!

Very nice piece and very cleverly done!!


All of you DV group do some amazing stuff, it is rather stimulating and enlightening.

Your actors were pretty awesome!!!

Very much enjoyed it!!

Thank You, Dale!

Yes! The REAL reason for the Pearl Harbor attack is a very little known piece of history! (hee hee hee) Oh, and the darkened truck windscreen was not intentional. Natural exposure caused that.

Thanks for watching!
