Youtube auteur MasterWGS brings the saga of Ash and the Norweigian King of Names to glorious life!
Fucks sake, is the really Laser Time’s first video tribute?! I’ve wanted to just flat out ask for one, but how exactly does one go about pathetically begging their fine community members for audio/visual immortality? How about outright bribery?! I’m gonna throw MasterWGS a $20 Amazon gift card, because I do love it so. In case you didn’t know, this sketch features The Norwegian King of Names, a character spawned on the MIA TalkRadar some time ago.
This clip comes from some Laser Time episode I do not specifically recall, in which, during our pluggy/update break, we’d take an improv sketch request from listeners in exchange for a $50 donation. We quit doing it because… fuck, improv is HARD! They generally required a shitload of editing, still ran long as hell, and I couldn’t tell whether they were even funny or completely disruptive to the flow of the show. What do you think? Should we make a return to improv sketchery? Please be honest!
After all, that’s basically where the King of Names originally came from: just fuckin’ around! I’d wanted to embed the King’s inaugural appearance here, but the video’s been removed from YouTube. What the hell?! [UPDATE: The original King of Names sketch is back on YouTube thanks to XanderCG!]
