That was awesome. Great work guys!
EPIC! So this is what the happening should have been like to be awesome…. No, not the FLOOR!!!
Congratulations! Great work.
I laughed so hard at the “I lied to him. I had never seen The Faculty.”
What was actually some good cinematography.
Godt jobba folkens! :D (Good work guys!)
Holy crap! Go fellow countrymen! I punched the air when he said the first winner had come from Norway. That was some awesomely cheesy stuff. I loved it.
Fabian Sylte – pure genuis
I never been prouder of my country!
That was awesome.
Wow, you were right Spoony.
That was incredible, I was expecting some really amateurish stuff to be honest, but this blew me away. They really put some effort into it.
I can’t wait to see the others…. can’t believe this all came from a joke you made in an ultima video. What a turnout.
Visste ikke at så mange nordmenn var her;)
vi er fleire enn du trur :3
I had to register just make a comment here :) Awesome video!
Heia Norge! Denne siden kryr jo av nordmenn !
Where did you get those MST3K figures!?
“Eyescum” Productions? Really? *Shrugs* ….alright…..
You are the kind of internet personality we can respect, someone who would look through all the videos people posted. Was there any doubt you would get people trying their best and sending in? :)
This “movie” needed a badass one-liner right after the grass monster got killed.
“Your ass is grass!”
Maybe there was a pun but it was a norwegian?
Not so many people have been this inspired by grass since Cheech and Chong.
It really reminded me of Edgar Wright’s Dead Right, the student movie he made that’s on the Hot Fuzz DVD, especially in its sense of humour (the Faculty line was brilliant). Just excellent- I laughed out loud more than once, and the ending killed me too :D
I’m looking forward to the sequel, The Floor, now. A great video from the creators. And I have to say, Norway is very pretty as well. Very scenic. Like New Zealand is for Middle Earth, Norway is for scenic grass.
The second Winner is funny, the third Winner is great but this one?
Come on, seriously?
I see dozens of better Videos on Youtube than this one. O.o
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, as they say. Personally, I thought this was very well done. I especially liked the cat jump scare, I’m so sick of those that the ‘wah wah waaaah’ music drew a big laugh from me. Good sense of humour as well.
For me it was the appearance of the grass monster itself that cracked me up. Just the angry face on the big pile of grass… I dunno. Something about it is funny. And of course the twist at the end that the battle isn’t over.
I think it’s just well paced. The humour’s actually funny, and the laugh bits are positioned well. Can’t ask for any more than that out of an amateur video in my opinion. I got more laughs out of this than the average Hollywood rom-com.
Sry, but look in this Thread: http://spoonyexperiment.com/forum/index.php?topic=24992.0
There is an other Entry from Norway and ist much better than this.Its better shot, better edited, had a better Humor and is better acted as this one.As i say, the thrid Winner is great, the second is very funny but i totaly disagree with the first Winner.Really, i dont know whats so funny in this Movie.I sat here with my Brother and a Friend and we did not laugh one time.
Lol, loved the ‘cat scare’ XD
Det er ikkje grass det er en slags ting som imiterer grass! kom dere vekk idioter! (the thing)
Haha, så jævlig cheesy, men et faen så bra innslag! :-P
…And this is probably my favourite of the three winners;.)
Lol. I forgot about this.
I loved the fake cat scare.
I think it was a reference to Alien and first Silent Hill game :D
I gotta say, with that gravelly voice the lead sounds like he should be the lead singer of a death metal band. Seriously, gain some muscle mass and definition and I could see this guy doing independent action/comedies.
The movie itself was fun. I like all the tropes and humor beats used, but the best part–and this is key–was that they were used well.
Well done, Norsemen. Well done.
The floor! :D
Really happy to be one of the winners. It was alot of fun making this, and i want to thank Spoony and all you guys for the great feedback. The two other winners was breathtaking, and we’re proud to be one of the 3. Thanks again people!
- Fabian Sylte and Actionface.
Honestly I was sold from the opening lines. “Norway. A country known for its lakes and fjords, but also… GRASS”
Pure inspiration. Should try and bottle that.
grattis fra tromsø
i love it.
hope the people who put this together does more work. or, if they have already, continue to do such great work.
thanks for sharing it, Mr. Spoony.
that was frikkin AWESOME !!!
Oh my god. I laughed so hard when the ‘lone wolf’ character turned his head and went ‘woosh’.
How did I miss this contest? When was it announced?
I would have loved to make a german film for you, spoony.
short of the editing being a little weird (like in the begining when he says “norway home to (blah blah) and GRASS” then almost immediately switches to a monologue, seems to sudden)
And now we wait for the epic sequel… FLOOR!!!
This was hilarious. THE GRASS is making really huge amount of visual damage in this one. :p
“No e det berre ein motstandar igjen… GØLVET!!!” Hehe, truly epic! And being from Norway myself, highly quotable short-flick! A worthy winner indeed!
Seeing this just reminded me of something my evil DM made against us a few years back. A field of grass with a sign that read “Do Not Step On Grass.”
But the object needed to complete to quest was in the center of the field.
One character set foot on the grass, and was slain by several Level 5 Fighter Blades of Grass.
Every blade of grass was a level 5 fighter, all taking a ready action, waiting for someone to step on the grass.
When the was this contest announced?
Did I ride the short bus today? The grammer in my previous comment is fucked up. What I meant to say was, when was the contest announced?
Best non-Miyazaki movie I’ve seen this year.
Dude. I mean, DUDE. Seriously, if I wasn’t gonna win, I’m actually thrilled to lose to something this bad ass. :D I mean… Damn. XD A fine and well deserved win!
I think Actionfjies will go down as one of the great movie badasses of all time, it’s all in the voice.
BTW, some small trivia for those of you who don’t speak Norwegian: “Actionfjes” quite literally translates out to “Actionface” in English. Truly an inspiring name. :D
Thank you for the translation….that truly is an awesome name.
So, after watching all three videos, I have to say that this one made me laugh the most. They all were really funny, but this one just had me laughing so much more. Congrats to the winners!
Awesome vids everyone, and sweet Catan shirt, Spoony!
truly EPIC! I watched all the three so far…..I think you should have a link to all the others that were submitted I think it would be awesome!
I absolutely loved the look of the grass monster!
I gotta admit, I didn’t expect our to win, and it didn’t, so I’m not REALLY disappointed. When I told my friend (who was in the video) that one point in every video made you laugh, he immediately said “It was probably my: ‘Grrr!’” And that just made no sense, sorry. :P
Anyway, thanks for making this competition, it was SO much fun to do this!! :D
OMG TEH FLOOR! FTW!
Fucking awesome. This was not only both badass and funny as hell, it was shot and acted really, REALLY well.
… that rhymed. I am so sleep deprived.
In any case, I’m very glad that the threat of Norweigian Grass has been quelled and we can all now focus on the horrors of the FLOOR! Because as we all know, grass may be nature’s judas, but the floor is man’s creation and we must stop it before it gains power from the blood of its enemies! Quick, Igor! Fetch me my tessla coils! We have work to do!
Incredible! I almost passed this by in my reader because I didn’t even realize there was a contest. XD
Steals the guy’s last can of beans?!
What a dick. -:F
The “Floor” finish was a nice twist…XD
Hahaha but I lied to him… I never seen ”The Faculty”
This is what The Happening should have been. :D
Being a Norwegian I think I got an extra kick out of watching this video, just for the small phrases and jokes that only us Norwegians would get. Awesome work, fellas!
Hehe tusen takk mann :)
Aw, now I wish I knew what jokes you were talking about. Oh well, it’s still funny internationally XD
Lmao that’s hilarious. Great entry! I was laughing throughout.
LOL, really well done. Congrats on the win. Very enjoyable movie.
That was epic. Absolutely epic. I loved how it was set like some sort of postapoclypitic world, only with grass…and the floor as an ending was just icing. Wondeful job, and definitely deserves to be first (though I do wonder what prizes these people will get…I thought the prize was simply being shown XD)
I just love how many of us Norwegians are submitting things to TGWTG and the others. :P
Like how much crap we are sending Brad for his Brad Tries.
I didn’t know there were so many Norwegians here, and I was surprised when Brad tried some Urge, but this?
Really liked this entry, probably because I’m Norwegian myself.
Fabian Sylte is a genius name, but I guess the name gets a bit lost in translation; it’s a very odd name.
It’s like if he was called “Chuck Steak” (not a literal translation, just trying to show how the name “feels” in Norwegian)
This is by far the best Norwegian film I ave ever seen!
Holy crap! It’s like if Resident Evil had been about grass instead of zombies! …and directed and written by someone with some actual talent! Very impressive! :D
That guy deserves first place. He took it a step further and used the Floor as a monster,
FANTASTIC !!! hahahah, i loved this, laughed out loud a load, you’re right spoony it feels like a mini movie, great acting, excellent camera work
‘i lied, i haven’t seen the facilty’
… I don’t remember anything about a grass battle contest. I thought I checked in here pretty regularly.
favourite line:- “Now there is only 1 opponent renaming THE FLOOR!”
It was in the ultima 3 Video if i remember correctly :-)
Ah yes, it was an addendum to the Ultima 3 review. I’d forgotten all about that.
Love ya spoony….but seriously, enough of the 5 min+ intros to videos….they are getting a little annoying.
That’s the reason status bars were invented– you know, so you can skip ahead.
This was incredible! OMG! I am really jealous!
That was seriously amazing :-) Well done!
well done. liking the tone…
It’s actually even more amusing if you know the language!
I’d translate boller with buns though.
Impressive… These guys surely know their horror clichés ;-)
So he steals the can of food and run onto the high grass. The Perfect crime !
