We made some more commercials for Adam Reposa, Lawyer, TV Personality, Loud Person!


Here’s the first one, in case you ain’t been paying attention:

After the first one went crazy online, Adam Reposa became internet-famous.

All this exposure went to Repo’s unsuspecting head.   His cranium swelled like the Hindenburg.  Big as can be.  Also, some stuff happened that I don’t wanna talk about just yet.  But it does involve typical Hollywood douche baggery and some double-crossing.  Fun!

Anyway, in the middle of that douche-storm, Repo asked us to make another commercial.  Reposa’s idea for the new commercial was pretty hare-brained, IMHO.  The premise was to make a commercial addressing the recent ban of Big Gulps and large sodas in NYC.  Remember that?  It was news for about 1/2 a day.  We over at CCF felt that this commercial idea sucked.  People will forget about the Big Gulp ban as soon as the next dumb chunk of news comes tumbling down the mountain.  And also, where’s the crashing cars and breaking glass?  Lame.  But we’re cool, so we played along.  After shooting the commercial, more douche-baggery ensued as well as that double-cross I hinted at earlier.  We won’t get into it right now, but it may have affected Bob Ray’s ability to edit.

Drunk and exhausted from swimming upstream in the torrent of douche flow, Bob Ray overcame all and edited the new commercial like a champ.  Here it is:

Reposa didn’t like this version.  He asked us not to put it online.  Repo wanted it re-edited.  A few days later, and with Chad Holt (of Total Badass fame, and Reposa’s legal assistant now) as a middle-man, there was a bury-the-hatchet sort of moment where Bob Ray (being awesome and forgiving and stuff) agreed to re-cut the commercial.

Repo suggested some unwanted and unsolicited changes: “add the Star Spangled Banner,” “do more choppy editing, like the first one,” “make it less snobby and avant garde,” “have less cinematography,” etc.

Bob Ray and CrashCam Films thought those ideas sucked.

Anyway, here’s the revised version of the commercial:

So now everything’s cool.  Except that double-cross thing, that is.  That’s still not cool

Hey look, Repo recently landed on the local TV news.  Bob Ray is featured in the piece as “the unknown cameraman who makes Eastwood look so fine.”

More to come.  Or not.  Who knows?

A short film telling the whole story is in the can.  It’s tentatively titled “The Adam Reposa Saga.”

All good fun and games!

7:10 AM
BOB:

Got to Austin at about 6:00 AM.  Dropped Chad off.  Drove home.  Tomorrow we screen in Austin at the Alamo Drafthouse.  It’s gonna rock.

11:44 PM
BOB:

Sleep.  Fuck.  Sleep. Fuck.  Sleep.  Fuck.  Sleep.

10:35 AM

CHAD:
A big thanks to Kat of The Treasure Valley Rollergirls and her family for letting us stay with them here in Boise. When we got up this morning, the dog was watching television. Seriously… The TV was on animal planet and the dog was totally fucking watching it, freaking out on other dogs. I got it on video, see:

11:12 AM

CHAD:
Not that any of this topped a dog watching television, but I did spend about three hours walking around downtown Boise, and it fucking rules.  The nightlife was pretty happening last night, too.  Here are some videos of the state capitol building, and then I filmed an Idaho State Police car.  It was probably the coolest police car I’ve ever seen…And I’ve seen a lot of them.

12:12 PM

BOB:
Double-up on the ditto Chad done said, and a big thanks to Kat and her fam for the sweet, sweet hospitality.  The triptych of couches served us well.  Even when the pooches needed a snuggle.  We hit the road for another 8+ hour drive.  Despite the declaration of no more getting lost, we got lost on step one right off Kat’s porch.  But we managed to overcome and found the interstate.

Rest stop: (see big blue piss box on the right)

3:01 PM

BOB:
We saw several burnt-up patches of grass and a few tires.  The second vid was cool as we drove right through the smoke at 8Omph.  But the battery died before we got there, so just take a huge bong hit, blow out a puff of smoke and run through it at top speed and you’ll get the proper effect.

5:14 PM

BOB:
These 8+ hour drives are getting routine at this point.  Except this time we’re cruising through the Washington mountains and we’re about to run out of gas. No shit.  In a Prius and about to run out of gas.  Nice, huh?  Let’s see how it panned out:

6:41 PM

BOB:
More driving.

7:53 PM

CHAD
Originally, I was going to ride into Seattle today with Bob and then take a bus down to Portland so I can wait for him there while he does the Canada shows, seeing as how I’m not allowed into Canada. Well, it occurred to me that this might be the only chance I ever have to see Seattle, but I really don’t have anywhere to stay here. I got on the phone with friends down in Austin in a panic and asked them if they know anyone here whose house I could crash at for a couple days while I checked out the city. I was referred to a girl, Heidi, who might let me stay at her place. I say “might” as though I don’t know yet, because I’m pretending to have typed this days ago when actually I have already been in Seattle and Portland both, partying for over a week, and yes I stayed at Heidi’s house for about five fucking days, thank you very much, dear. Oh yeah, we went completely apeshit, too and here’s some video from my first night in Seattle:

I spent most of my Seattle nightlife up north in Ballard, where Heidi owns a bar and frequents about twenty others. They have a badass strip of bars up here, and I’ve met a lot of nice people and seen a bunch of shows. The above clip was Kaleb Hagan-Kerr doing an improvised little ditty in the back of Hattie’s Hat.

2:21 AM

BOB:
Okay, we got lost a few more times, minor affairs.  Before landing in my Seattle destination, I dumped Chad off.  He found a gal to crash on.  Or a couch.  I’m not sure which.  I’m not usually one to brag, but fuck it: what I am sure of is that I did get laid before Chad did on this tour.  So suck on that!

Okay, so don’t flip.  Everything’s cool.  I didn’t ditch Chad.  The thought crossed my mind.  Chad and I had to part ways cuz the fucker ain’t allowed into Canada on account of him being a convicted felon and shit.  And, there are a handful of Hell on Wheels only screenings coming up: Bellingham, Tacoma & Port Orchard and one more double header in the forbidden land of Victoria, Canada.  But we’ll meet back up when we screen in Portland on the 29th and be a two-headed bastard again through the rest of the tour.

Despite his rep and a few annoying habits, Chad’s a dam-fine travel companion.  I mean, except the part where he has a suspended license and can’t drive so he’s effectively dead weight half of the time.  But he means well and leaves very little damage in his wake, so it’s mostly pleasant or maybe tolerable.

Here’s a vid from inside Seattle.  I think I’ve played a race car video game where I drove through these:

Help us spread the word!!! We have more screenings coming up and could use your help w/ promo:
