    not only is this offensive, it’s very poorly written and filmed. Predictable, boring, and what the F is with that underwear shot? No, seriously. WTF Steves. You’ve outdone yourself.

    My suggestions:

    (1) Get language coaches. That way, you can realistically imitate the nationalities. There are plenty of people here who know plenty of them. (Insert comment about myself)
    (2) Accelerate the action considerably. Rests can be good in music. Dialogue, not so much.
    (3) Add background music. In ALL parts. That way, people will not be (as) tempted to shut it off mid-stream. NOT absolutely familiar music, but of the vaguely familiar variety.
    (4) Clever dialogue, as opposed to very simple sentences. Unless you are going for a children’s show feel, that is.

    Give them a break. At least they’re getting off of their butts and doing something. Cheers, to you guys! Of course it’s not perfect, but that’s what makes it fun. Keep at it. I thought it had some pretty funny moments.

      Racist? No. Bad fake accents? Definitely. The idea has potential, but is totally ruined by the in-and-out/inaccurate accents.
