Awesometown - Dudes Cut

"After FOX passed, The Dudes cut a new version of Awesometown in hopes of appealing to MTV or Comedy Central. Although those networks ultimately passed as well, this cut is more The Dudes' style and doesn't make them cringe as much. Contains nudity! TRT: 14 Minutes"

WARNING: There is some nudity in their IGTV "porno shots." Skip from 3:01-4:07. Apparently, the dudes thought it was funny to make fun of the sex in music videos by merely putting music on top of a porno. While it is funny, it's not funny that they left some nudity in the porno.

This is definitely funnier without the laugh track. I actually like the "YES" titles they throw in there too. Very similar to the "Realize your Dreams" they used in "Andy Punching People" on SNL.



Here are the skits used:

- Jack Black intro

- Awesometown song intro

- Sup Chip

- IGTV Buzz Countdown (NUDITY - Skip from 3:01-4:07)

- Awesometown Grocery title

- Castaways 1 (Jorma clueless about his beard)

- Dry Cleaners

- Taking it to the Streets with Chris Romano (similar to Andy Walking they did on SNL - Plus Andy's pulled this gag off in interviews by handing them questions)

- Arm gag from their Fighting Neighbors video

- Exploding High Five

- Jumping on Andy

- Castaways 2 (Jorma is mad about the beard)

- Just 2 Guyz

- Castaways 3 (posing)

- Awesometown Plumbing title

- Discovering Chad (a joke based on Andy's stand up comedy) - Note: This is the only place I've seen this skit, so check it out.

- Jorma punching in front of Kal Penn (who, ironically, has become more famous than Jorma)

- Chez at the production office, dancing next to the producers and dudes. This was the same gag they used in Hot Rod, with Chez dancing (he got better for the movie). This gag was also used by Tucker in the later TLI short, Tucker's Song.

- Castaways 4 (Best Beard on the Island)

- My Pants

- Dance of Hope (hilarious)


Overall: They mixed it up quite a bit and changed out most of the skits, keeping in Castaways, Just 2 Guyz, the Awesometown intros/titles, and not much else. Everything else they traded out, includng Bu, Glirk, and all those expensive stage shots they did for Fox. They may have had a better chance just taking some of the silliness out of the Fox version rather than going in the opposite direction and making it too edgy. Kudos for finishing strong with the Dance of Hope.
