Vid: When life gives me lemons...  
Title: When life gives me lemons, I make lemonade
Source: Community
Music: The Boy Least Likely To
Summary: Ensemble vid for 'Community' Season 1
Access vid: YouTube or BAM or download here
Notes: Made as escapist fun, un-betaed. I really needed to make a non-serious vid. This is it. It was made in ten minute blocks of vidding time: that's all I have at the moment. Crappy downloaded source which includes DivX logo: if that bothers you, don't watch. ::ponders:: Vid will likely make more sense if you have seen the show. Have I sufficiently warned you away yet? ;)

Ahhh dude this is completely and utterly delightful!
The song choice was perfect and the editing was very fitting - all the cuts. And I love Senor Chang's comment at the end, very clever touch :)

That was awesome! The song is perfect, and I love how you captured the essence of each of the characters, and how they're all there for each other. This vid totally reminds me of all the reasons why I love this show! My favorite part was the dance montage, brilliant. And thanks for including Batman!Abed. :)

Oh, yay! I'm so glad you liked it. :D I'm glad you liked the dance montage, and I couldn't not include Batman!Abed. He was the best!

Brill! Just what the doctor ordered as an anti-dot for Sunday morning sluggishness. I want to dress up like a flower and dance now....

I don't know the show but that didn't take away from the enjoyment, I don't think. The vid makes it look like a lot of fun, but there were also some poignant moments (flower-girl on stage spotting hand-holding in the audience), great balance of elements! Maybe I should try vidding in 10 minute blocks...

Hee! That's so great. So interesting to hear from someone that doesn't know the show. Glad it translated! :)

There's kind of not time to overthink anything in ten minute blocks. Sometimes that can be good. ;)

eeeh, that is so utterly adorable!
i've never even heard of this show but clearly it's made of sparkles & tiny hearts. it helps that the boy least likely to is my absolute happy place - i'm kinda in love with this right now :D

Very, very fun vid! Just puts a smile on one's face even though I didn't know the fandom.

And I love sunflower people!

This is wonderful! It's so upbeat and fun and captures everything that I adore about the show. Completely made my Sunday morning (well, afternoon now, I guess ;)).

Love your icon! ;) I'm so glad it captured the show well for you. 'Community' has been my new delight this year.

THIS IS SUNSHINE!!!! I giggled all the way through, even though I've never seen the source. Great recruiter vid, and wonderful use of physical comedy.
counteragentcounteragent on March 14th, 2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
The end is total love. I LOLed. Also really loved the part where the African American woman seems to be directing the action, and the brunette takes charge and gets the man (temporarily--it seems that he's with the blonde in the end, I think).

Awesome, awesome vid! I loved the quirky song choice, and the rising arc of the characters interactions. Thanks!

Thanks--really glad the song choice worked for you. :)

Oh, this is just so Community, the show that wants to be kind of cynical but just has this huge heart underneath. Excuse me while I heartclutch.

So much fun! Especially the dance interlude. Lovely. ♥
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Abed/Troybop_radar on March 17th, 2010 12:58 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! :) Great description of the show: so true.

I'd say that I've not looked too deeply into this vid, but the honest truth is that I've just been watching it repeatedly as I try and think of cogent points about it... only to find that I keep getting distracted by how upbeat and cheery is.

I'd not realised just how much motion there is Community - I know i've only seen half a dozen epiosdes or so, but there were loads of bits in this I recognised... enough to be familiar with the majority of the characters. I'm glad for that - between the Batman moment and the dancing sunflowers, there were a lot of my favourite moments in this.

I'm particularly tickled you included the crazy Spanish teacher - I think the sequence from about 2:30 onwards is my favourite, all the crazy, geeked out dancing and motion. You even included a scene that looks like the breakfast club! And the alien moment! It's as if you've bundled up so many bouncy moments of visual comedy and pulled them together to create something just... wondrous. I defy anyone to watch this and not be hugely cheerified by it :)

Have I mentioned all the flaily hand gestures you've woven in? The unrequited relationships? The exaggerated facial gestures? The giant sombrero? The little skip-cut you included at around 1:20 for emphasis? The duct tape look of death? The hilarious body muscle costume? People lseeping in drawers? The human Christmas tree? The whippy cream dessert tray wonder? The jazz hands.

This is awesome :)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Batmanbop_radar on April 3rd, 2010 09:03 am (UTC)
How could I not include Senor Chang? ;) He is essential. :) And yeah, if you haven't seen the Breakfast Club dancing ep yet, you have treats in store. :)

I finally finished watching Community and then came back to see this vid - it's so much fun! \o/

Yay!! I'm glad there's another Community fan out there! (We are growing in number!) There should be more vids, but I'm glad you enjoyed this one. ;)

This was awesome! The dance break was my favorite.

Eeeeeee! Late feedback but this is just a ball of wonderful and I'm so happy I found it. I was loving it already but the instrumental dance sequence at 2:30 is just perfect, it really looks like El Tigre Chino and the Breakfast Club dance were made to be vidded to this. XD The way you edited the Christmas fight and Troy/Britta dance was also fabulous.

And LOL, the ending. Love this show.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Abedbop_radar on December 10th, 2010 02:42 am (UTC)
Oh thanks so much! There have been so many great Community vids since I've kind of assumed this one would fall off the radar (which is ok!) but I'm glad it's still an enjoyable watch. :) I was so in happy love with the show--it's so joyful! :)
