Fresh off of their DSRL parody, Jed and Justin tackle the infamous viral phenomenon known as "All Your Base Are Belong to Us." With the word 'base' in there, a baseball-related parody was inevitable, wasn't it?

I just have my doubts that this is the one they were looking for.

Players and Prospects Appearing in this Show:
Once again, Jed and Justin are our leads. The role of the operator (who gets the lovely line "Somebody set up us the bomb!") is filled by some unknown guy in Triple-A Dusty Brown, as I'm trying to give him as much publicity as I can so that people know who he is (not that a huge amount of people read this blog, but every little bit counts...). We also get Jacoby Ellsbury, Todd Helton, Jonathan Papelbon and Matt Holliday (as well as Youk's hand and glove) in the World Series scenes, and Sam Fuld appears with Jed in the Arizona Fall League, where the two of them played for Mesa together. (As my margin notes say at that point, they were also teammates at Stanford.)

Warning: I drew a few people from memory (including Dusty Brown, whose entire speaking part was drawn in class), so they might not be all that accurate. (This was also the first time I tried my hand at drawing Helton, Holliday and Fuld, so they're probably iffy, too.)

I also made a slight change to the line "Take off every Zig," but I had to do that for context reasons. Otherwise, the dialogue is pretty much intact and straight from the bad translation of Zero Wing. The only problem with that is that no one seems to be able to keep a straight face in this thing...






The next time the Sox have the bases loaded, I want somebody to tell the opposing pitcher that he "has no chance to survive make his time." (Dustin, I'm looking at you. You're enough of a trash talker to do it.)

I fear this is becoming a series. Uh-oh. (I seriously hope not - it's getting waaaay too stupid to become a series.)

All your base are belong to Pawtucket!

edit: An Adventures of Jed and Justin would be awesome. They should parody the whole thing about Rick Rolling or come across a video of Kevin Youkilis in college lip syncing to Spice Girls(...I actually dreamt this)

Kevin Youkilis lip syncing the Spice Girls? That reminds me of this video so much...Not that either of them look like Youk, but...Totally loving the idea, though. (I'll credit you if I use it!)

On that note, one of my friends had me writing a short story in which Jonathan caught Josh blasting the Spice Girls in the clubhouse, but I never finished it. I might have to now...

It was the weirdest dream ever. I had it in like 2005 or so. I was on a playground with former Tigers catcher Eric Munson(oddly enough who was in Manny and Youks' workout group in AZ) and we came across this old video and we suddenly were like "WTF?" and a TV w/ a VCR suddenly appeared(because that always happens in dreams) and we put it in and there's Youk with a grey hoodie and I think Red Shorts lip syncing with some college buddies to the Spice Girls. Feel free to use this storyline even if it's not Youk who they find the video of.

That is disturbing and amazing at the same time. (wishes she had more dreams about the Sox besides the one which involved Josh Beckett, Jonathan Papelbon and a couch)

And speaking of Rick Rolling, I coincidentally have "Never Gonna Give You Up" on my iPod (it was on some compilation album I put on there and I never took it off). Now I'm tempted...

Justin with a red wig! And he could have it youtubed and then send it out to his teammates or others just for shits and giggles like "OMG YOU GUYS! CHECK OUT THIS PREVIEW FOR *insert movie here*" or what not.

The mental image of Justin in the wig just gave me a really bad case of the giggles, which I had to muffle because my roommate (who definitely wouldn't get the joke) is in the room...

"Yeah, so I found the preview for Keith Foulke: The Movie the other day, and I just thought I'd share..."
