Hey beardlovers. You know, there's this stereotype that entertainers and public figures are egotistical, but you don't have to worry about that here at Wheezy Studios. I realize there are a lot more important things going on in the Craig. The world. Sorry, I'm gonna do that again. [Something offscreen captures his attention.] Oh look! [Pans camera to his monitor, where he sees himself. He stares at monitor, enthralled.] Look, it's me! Hi. Hi there. [Waves at himself. Blows kisses and catches them, laughing. Points at himself in the monitor.] You. What was I doing?
[Wheezy Waiter beard intro]
So today in the news, [shows headline] Consumer Reports magazine announced its support Tuesday for so-called vehicle-to-vehicle technology.
Ooh, hehe. A little car on car action. Heh. External combustion. Hehe. Practicing combustiality. Heh. Spark me with a different plug.
Oh. [highlights part of the article] It turns out it's just that they'll communicate with each other.
Oh, so it's all about the dirty talk then. I'm not interested.
[reads from article] Each vehicle broadcasts its own speed and direction, making it easier to avoid potential collisions.
Oh, so it's about safety. Yeah yeah. Right right right. That's a good thing. In fact, I've been trying to get my home furnishings to talk to each other for years. [Rolls chair backwards/singing rug] I just can't get it to work. Observe.
[Couch:] Get out of my face, chair! I said I never wanna talk to you.
[Chair:] Ohhh. Mister Wide and Mighty. New couch. Pffft. I'm newer than you.
[Couch:] Nothing will ever be newer than me.
[Chair:] Look at you. You can't even recline.
[Couch:] I don't need to be raised and lowered. Rolling around. I'm sturdy, loyal, stalwart.
[Chair:] Those are big words. Must have got a thesaurus from bookshelf.
[Bookshelf:] Guys, can we set aside our differences? Worry about 'em another day. You know, put 'em on the shelf.
[Blender:] I'm confident we can combine our ideals and work this out.
[Chair:] You would say that, blender.
[Television:] I think Dr. Phil would help. Tune it at 4. Check your local listings.
[Chair:] I get my help from the internet.
[Fridge:] Oh, that's cold, man. And I know cold.
[Freezer, which has a woman's voice:] No, I know cold!
[Fridge:] Shut up, freezer.
[Craig:] Alright, enough!
[Rug:] Guys, um, I'm starting to cramp. Could you...
[Craig:] Oh, oh sorry, rug.
[Rug:] Could you maybe...
[Craig:] Sorry. [Rolls chair off rug]
[Rug:] Ow. Ouch. Ouch.
[Craig sits back down/singing rug]
So beardlovers, for the rest of today's video I have something awesome planned for you but I need to set up the camera... [Sound of dominoes being knocked over.] Oh crap! I knocked over the dominoes! Oh, there they go. Setting off the mousetrap attached to the rope, [sounds accompany Craig's description of what's happening offscreen, just behind camera] which is throwing the ball-bearing into the gong. [Gong sound] Wakes up the lion. [Lion growls.] The lion starts running on the treadmill, powering the electric car. [Car starts.] Oh, there it goes! Over the ramp, into the whale tank [sound of landing in whale tank], startles the whale [whale sounds], who shoots the clone with his blowhole...
[Clone, offscreen:] Aaaaaaa! What's happening?
[Craig gets up and follows the action in the sky, moving towards the kitchen:] Way up there!
[Clone:] Stupid eagle! [Sound of clone punching eagle, offscreen]
Punches the eagle. Yes! [Eagle squawks. Craig's in kitchen now.] Then the clone falls into the alligator pit.
[Clone:] Oh god, no! [Alligator munches.]
The alligator eats him. Wags his tail. Sets off the pulley, which carries the TV playing the first 10 minutes of Up [we hear the music], which makes the other clone cry. [We can hear a sobbing clone in kitchen.] He flails his arms, throws the mug! [Craig catches the mug] Oh, and then he runs. Jumps into the alligator pit. [Clone yells as he falls.] Knocks over the other set of dominoes. [Alligator munches. Sound of dominoes knocked over.] They come around. Unhook the rope. And... [We can see the coffee pot tip forward and pour coffee into Craig's mug.] ahhhh. [Craig sips as he's walking back towards camera.] Mmm. I love it when the coffee's done.
Probably should have set those dominoes a little bit further away from the chair. Thankfully I set up another track over here 'cause... [Sound of dominoes being knocked over.] Oh no! I set it off!
[Wheezy Waiter outro]
[Winker lip-syncing to Craig's voice:] I did this talking low and slow. And then I sped it up in the editing process. [Winks (ding)]

Don't you wanna have fun?
And that's about it for now. I have a lot of stuff to clean up 'cause... [The lion growls.] How did the lion get out of its cage? [Slowly backs his chair away/singing rug. The lion growls. Craig stops.] Do lions respond to movement like T-rex? [Backs the chair up a little more/singing rug. The lion growls. Craig gets up and runs away.]
