"I shall kidnap all the mayors!"

An original painting by the artist laureate of the Spoony Experiment, Jared von Hindman.

  • Groverfield

    Well, since Brittish was all about kidnapping the princesses, I suppose for the Dark Knight to become a sort of anti-Brittish he thought maybe kidnapping Mayors and Dukes would work?

  • Krom

    The black knight seems to enjoy his line of work. Does he make special Xmas-deliveries as well?

  • Ciaran Hillock

    So…when’s the next video…in a month?

    • TheVGamer

      I made a joke two years ago about how part three of his FFXIII review would arrive in Q3 2013… I missed by a quarter, but it still took him more than four months to do the bloody video. So yeah, don’t joke about that stuff.

      • Ash_Riot

        Looks like it will be a month, after all at this rate. :/

        • Daniel Tilson

          Not even a full ten days. You fail.

          • Ash_Riot

            A crossover video? That doesn’t count at all. So nope, wrong fanboy.

          • Daniel Tilson

            Because a crossover video doesn’t require the same amount of work? You fail. It actually takes more since you have to either be in the same location, which means traveling… Or you have to green screen the fuck out of it, which they did some of, but not nearly as much as they’d have had to to insert two more people onto one couch.

            If you want to be specific about which kinds of videos you want, be specific. Otherwise? Quit bitching.

  • Munashiimaru

    Wait you had to make the Black Knight actually black? Why because he’s stealing things? That’s racist.

    • Maria White

      Umm his face is in shadow…..

    • Karl Anderskiöld

      Are you saying only whites steal?

  • smek2

    Uhm…. this is not a video, but a single image? ookay?!

    • Lina Jones

      Wow, holy shit, really?!

    • doresh

      That’s the thing with “artwork” :3

    • chainsawmidget

      That doesn’t mean you can’t watch it!

  • Jordan Maddocks

    Curse you spoony for getting my hopes up!!!!….. Cool picture though

  • casval0287

    pretty cool. I like the controllers in the background. the coloring reminds me of old 90s cartoons like Rocko’s Modern life.

    • Krom

      Black Knights modern liiiiiife!
      He just wants to be Lord British’s wife!

    • doresh

      Don’t forget Ren and Stimpy.

      *hums hapy hapy joy joy*

  • Casey Williamson

    I’ve watched this picture three times already…

  • Obstreperous

    It’s really cool of you to promote an artist’s work. It can be very hard to get any kind of recognition sometimes.

  • Michael Tupper

    Spoony looks very annoyed

    • Godmars

      Wouldn’t you?

    • Patrick Coyle

      The Black Knight’s just that good at what he does.

      Scary to think about how effective he’d be if he tried for the usual immortality or world dominion thing.

      • doresh

        The Immortal Annoyer XD

    • Carewolf

      That is his happy face and his happy shaking of fist and yelling; get off my lawn, you damn kids.

  • endplanets

    Normally its a bunch of princesses being captured and put in various castles.
    But not the Black Knight, that’s not how he rolls.

    Also all the princesses were captured in Ultima 1 or 2 and the Black Knight hates unoriginality.

  • doresh

    Good to see that Jared’s still doing his thing :3

    He also has some older-ish articles on his site, including stuff related to Counter Monkey:

    The most stupid monsters of D&D…

    … and it’s sequel!

  • Patrick Coyle

    God, this video player sucks worse than ever! It can’t even load up the ads right.

    • doresh

      Don’t forget the darn buffer.

  • theshamster

    Oh no, the Black Knight is taking them to his sex dungeon!

  • IHeart28

    Looks like the black knight became some perverted grinch. Great picture!

  • Imesseduptheemail

    I’ve been waiting for those Halloween reviews for years, Jared. How soon is soon?

    • doresh

      As soon as The Last Guardian is released and HL3 is confirmed.

      (Though I hope I’m wrong…)

  • Amesang

    Is… Is one of the kidnapped mayors from Myth Busters?

    • revenent hell

      They kind of reminded me of both of those guys.

  • chainsawmidget

    Jared is still around? Wow. I haven’t seen anything by that guy in forever.

  • Ryumoau

    awesome artwork. :)

  • Владимир Динев

    If you don’t post something new soon, I’m gonna start killing puppies!

  • Spectr

    Lol Spoony is now getting 3000$ a month via patron and is still lazy as fuck. Well if you people pay him that much for one video every one or two months who can blame him?

    • Владимир Динев

      Oh, come on, man. You don’t know the guy. Don’t bash him.

    • Atmos_Duality

      Yes, it’s not like it takes a long time to do writing, shooting, editing or effects required to produce 20-40 minutes of good content. Let alone one person doing most if not all of that.

      Besides, everyone knows that money has the ability to alter the space time continuum, so that’s no excuse either.

      • Ciaran Hillock

        That’s not an excuse for Spoony to sit on his ass and take the money while everyone waits for him to put out a video, he’s just laughing it up for everyone who gave him money.

        • Atmos_Duality

          Well, clearly you know what he is doing his every waking (and non waking) moment, so why not enlighten us with some hard evidence.

          Go ahead. I’m waiting for that footage of him loafing around and laughing for days on end.

          • Владимир Динев

            You made my day man. I’m still laughing :D

          • doresh

            Spoony should totally make vlogs out of that. Something like “Spoony laughs (at YOU)”

          • Krom

            In Russia (or Spoonia in this case?), reviewers are laughing at YOU!

    • Ed Matuskey

      Heavens, you’re right–why didn’t any of the Patrons see it?! Oh wait, they did–slow updates are nothing new (I, myself, an happy with whatever output he can manage–I figure I owe him for years of browsing his back catalog if nothing else), and anyone who pledged already knew what to expect. Spoony’s not our monkey, just like GRRM isn’t your bitch. :p

    • Daniel Tilson

      Whatever you’re smoking, I want some. There were 2 game review videos just in June. 6 days prior to the first of those there was a Counter Monkey video

      Yea, he totally only puts out one video every one to two months.

  • Groverfield

    The NC crossover yesterday. Opportunities were missed. “I can only do that once” should have been “It’s Vancian.”
