As we all know, the premier of The Weekly Stupid: The Movie is imminent.

I'd like us to step back from our excitement for just a moment, and in the spirit of shameless marketing and hype mongering efforts, reflect on the previous works of the makers of this film as well as some other Debate.org film making notables.

(For the sake of keeping this thread quick to load, I will not embed the videos. Yes, this means you will have to click on the links to watch the videos on Youtube.)

............

1. "An Airmax Forum"

The first film that I worked on was a campaign video made by Nur_ab_Sal.

It was a parody of a video he made for the JimTimmy/16kadams campaign.

That video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com...

I contacted Nur and suggested he help me make the parody. He did an excellent job on the "Airmax forum" video, which can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com...

There are a couple things worth noting here for the sake of DDO history:

One, I did not actually post the parody during the election. While I really liked the video and was grateful that Nur made it for me, in the end I didn't want it to be viewed as mean-spirited in any way, so I waited to post it until after the election when it wouldn't be viewed as a cynical political ploy.

Second, even though the history forum idea was kind of dismissed as unnecessary by much of the electorate, I actually worked on it with Juggle anyway (as well as the funny forum.) So while Jimtimmy didn't win the election, that idea and these two videos will live on through DDO history forever.

2. "Airmax might be Cole Hamels"

This is another campaign video I pitched to Nur_ab_sal and he did a great job with it. The basic idea was to use the fact that Cole Hamels and I share the exact same birth date, to push a logical fallacy, encouraging DDO members to vote for me, because I might be him. I figured that every DDO member loves logical fallacies, and this one was especially fun.

The video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com...

3. The Weekly Stupid

A show produced by Imabench detailing the stupidest comments of the previous two weeks on DDO. An archive can be found on DDOFans. While this was entirely an Imabench production, I did do two interviews on the show. I don't think there's much I can say that hasn't been said about it, so I'll leave it at that. The only thing I'll add is that the movie version is less than 8 hours away from premiering. So get hyped, get some popcorn, and mute your phone.

4. "Imabench reacts to Airmax being reelected"

The first Airmax/Imabench collaboration film. After I was elected for a third time I contacted Imabench to do a fun movie and gave him the basic gist of what I had in mind. He took the basic idea and made it something special. This film was actually just inducted into the DDO Hall of Fame - so that should give you an idea of the quality of work you can expect tonight, but in the form of a full length feature film.

The video can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com...

5. The Weekly Stupid: The Movie Trailer

The second collaboration by Airmax/Imabench. A trailer for tonight's featured event.

The trailer can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com...

........

So that covers the previous work of Imabench productions and Airmax Anonymous. We are happy to have collaborated on this project and are excited to share the film with you.

Bonus Films:

I'd like to share a couple other excellent films from other DDO members.

1) "Welcome to Debate.org."

DDO's theme song by Freedo: https://www.youtube.com...

2) Big Announcement From MassiveDump

The New The Weekly Stupid by MassiveDump. While the New Weekly Stupid only lasted one episode, the trailer for it was really excellent.

It can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com...

....

So that's it. A brief history of film on Debate.org. If you have anything you would like to share, or other DDO movies you would like to link, please feel free to do so.

Otherwise, The Weekly Stupid: The Movie premiers tonight at Midnight (DDO time) so clear your schedule. We'll see you there.

....

A final note:

As much as we like to joke around and have fun on Debate.org, it's important to reflect on more important things sometimes. So while you are waiting for the film to premier tonight, please take a moment to remember all of the debates that go unvoted and need your help. You truly can make a difference:

It is a very important cause.... And for less than $1 a day, you too can change the life of a debate in need.

That is very touching. I must go and pay!
I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas...
Is...
Youuuuuu

I can't say for certain... He did the one episode and then I think he gave up on it.
