Synopsis

Too much Desert Bus has a negative impact on LoadingReadyRun. Or does it?

Trivia

  • The crew originally planned for the third installment of commodoreHUSTLE to go up sometime during this week. However, due to shooting delays and the overwhelming success of Desert Bus 2, commodoreHUSTLE was delayed until the next week and this was conceived on Friday night, shot all day Saturday and went up early Sunday morning making it the latest LoadingReadyRun update and keeping the update-once-a-week record intact.

Lyrics

JEREMY PETTER: Hey, James?

JAMES TURNER: Yeah?

JEREMY PETTER: Kroze here says he paid 50 bucks for "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles.

JAMES TURNER: Paul, has that come in yet?

PAUL SAUNDERS: Uh, yep, yep. 50 bucks just came in.

JAMES TURNER: Awesome. Yeah, Kroze, we can do that.

{Background song begins}

[Graham Stark]
You've watched us on the 'net for the last week or two
Sat in your chair intent at logging on teh view
This went so well it stopped us doing what we do
[Tally Heilke]
Ohh, oh...

[Graham Stark]
We ran a fundraiser for a kid's charity
Broadcast over machine by much technology
But all of us were on death's doorstep by day three
[Tally Heilke]
Ohh, oh...

[Matt Higgins]
It's for the children!
[Tally Heilke]
Ohh, oh...
[Graham Stark]
See Twilight again.

[All]
Desert Bus killed the Internet star
Desert Bus killed the Internet star
[Paul Saunders]
Donations kept us from our art...
[Tally Heilke]
Ohh, ohh, oh oh...

[Jeremy Petter]
And now we meet in an abandoned office room
This week's video post has met its certain doom
But now it's over and the work we can resume
[Tally Heilke]
Ohh, oh...

[Jeremy Petter]
We have a plush duck
[All]
We're tired as swear[1]

Desert Bus killed the Internet star
Desert Bus killed the Internet star
[Morgan vanHumbeck]
In my house and in my car
I steer things left, I've bussed too far
[Tally Heilke]
Ohh, ohh, oh oh...

[All]
Desert Bus killed the Internet star
Desert Bus killed the Internet star
[Jeremy Petter]
We played some songs on this guitar
[Paul Saunders]
Have you seen what are donations are?
[Tally Heilke]
BusCam failed and broke your heart
[Graham Stark]
Put blame on the VCR

[Tally Heilke]
You are an Internet star...
You are an Internet star...

[All] Desert Bus killed the Internet star (You are an Internet star...)
Desert Bus killed the Internet star (You are an Internet star...)
Desert Bus killed the Internet star (You are an Internet star...)
Desert Bus killed the Internet star (You are an Internet star...)

{Fade to black.}

Joke References

  • In the opening exchange, Jer, James and Paul act out the usual way in which donations were accepted for antics (songs, etc) during Desert Bus.
  • "Kroze" is a minor internet celebrity due to his involvement with Yu-Gi-Oh the Abridged Series. He stepped in to moderate the desert bus IRC channel during the event.
  • The cast wear goofy glasses like Buggles member Trevor horn.
  • LoadingReadyRun had announced over the live feed DriverCam that the week's update would be the latest CommodoreHUSTLE installment, but that it was delayed because of extensive editing and Desert Bus. Hence, "stopped us doing what we do."
  • "For the children," was a phrase repeated often throughout the event, especially after viewers donated to have Morgan finish every sentence this way for a period of time.
  • After poking fun at the new movie "Twilight," money was donated to have Matt go and see the movie and give a review. Unbeknownst to him, the crew then accepted several more donations to have Matt attend Twilight more times.
  • Jer's plush duck appeared in Bandwidth Exceeded and donations were accepted to name the duck; Rosco P. Jangles IV.
  • LRR attempted to keep the live DriverCam feed PG13, avoiding profanity by replacing it with "swear."
  • In the game Desert Bus, the bus veers right requiring drivers to steer left.
  • The whiteboard Paul refers to when singing, "Have you seen what our donations are?" reads "Oh Snap!" under the total. During Desert Bus, this board pictured a flow chart for, "Did someone get told? If yes -> Oh snap!"
  • The BusCam, fed through a faulty VCR, went down several times.
