MtvU sent out a casting call asking for college students to submit machinima samples. I responded and they contacted me asking me to make four, thirty-second commercials for their brand-new section called “gam0RZ ball” which would run during their broadcast of Gamer’s Week 2.0.
They gave me four scripts, all based on my characters from Inventing Swear Words. I was free to edit them, but I had to convey a very specific message. The hard part was having the commercials say what mtvU wanted them to say, and yet at the same time make them funny. For the fourth commercial they gave me much greater freedom. I ended up rewriting the fourth script completely and came up with what you see in this movie, but alas, they decided not to air it. They did air the first three that I made, which aired on November 15th, 2006.
