[slides in/singing rug]
Hey beardlovers. Guess what? I got a whole 'nother terabyte of extra space. [holds up new drive] Since I have all this extra space, I don't have to be as efficient with my editing. [sighs. looks around. long pause] Oh, foot cramp! Foot cramp! Foot cramp! [gets up and walks around, sits down again] Think I'll do a little reading. My favorite book. The back of the Indiana Jones DVD. [reads back of Indiana Jones DVD for a few moments] Snakes? [reads some more, looking excited] Riveting.
[Wheezy Waiter beard intro]
[reading back of DVD] This film is presented in widescreen format. The black bars on the top and bottom of the screen are normal. [lowers DVD and ponders that for a moment] That's beautiful.
[plays guitar and sings:] This film's presented in widescreen format. The top and the bottom [black bars appear on top and bottom of screen] of the screen are normal. [no black bars now] Why the hell don't they use the whole screen. [black bars return] It's a creative choice. Now just watch the damn movie. [song over]
I kind of like this. Let's see if I can go wider. [bigger black bars appear at top and bottom of screen] Widest screen ever. Eh, I can go wider. [Only a sliver of the image is left. The rest is black bars. Craig's way back in the kitchen.] There we go.
Vertical. [There are black bars at the left and right of the screen.]
Halfsies. [The bottom half of the screen is black.] I like this one because I don't have to wear pants.
Bottom half. [The top half of the screen is black.] I like this one because I don't have to wear a... a shirt. Or bra.
An often underused frame is an old German technique known as the Hasselhoff split screen. [Half the screen is filled by a picture of shirtless David Hasselhoff.] I mean, it's pretty ingenious. Who wouldn't want to look at that for two hours, right? It's like watching two movies. It doesn't have to be that one. It can be this one. [Another picture of Hasselhoff without a shirt on fills half the screen.] Or this one. [Hasselhoff, who's shirtless, bronzed, and shiny, fills half the frame.] Ow! This one makes me squint. Hasselhoff's body is so bright. Put up a different one. [A still of shirtless Hasselhoff from the video where a drunk Hasselhoff eats a cheeseburger fills half the frame] That one makes me sad. Put up a different one. [Hasselhoff, in black shirt and underwear/Speedo, fills half the frame] That one's from my private collection. [Craig pushes it out of frame] Okay... So.... Hehe... So... I think the coffee's done. I love it when the coffee's done! Wider screen. [Black bars at top and bottom of screen] Wider screen. [Craig backs up in his chair as the black bars at top and bottom get even bigger] Wider screen! [Craig backs up even more. Black bars at top and bottom get even bigger.] Let's go get some coffee. [The huge black bars remain as Craig runs across his room towards the kitchen to get his coffee. Guitar music is playing.] Coffee coffee coffee. [Now black bar is on bottom half of screen as Craig runs across the room towards the kitchen.] Coffee coffee coffee. [Now the black bar is on the top half of the screen as Craig runs across the room towards the kitchen.] Coffee coffee [black bar at the top disappears, revealing that Craig is running shirtless] Whoop! [covers his chest] [Now in the kitchen, black bars appear on the left and right hand side of the frame as Craig runs to the coffee maker] Coffee coffee. [Now split screen with a picture of Hasselhoff, Craig pours his coffee.] Coffee coffee. Yeah, the Hasselhoff frame is the right choice for this shot. [Hasselhoff picture changes to Hasselhoff in the black shirt and underwear] Not that one, though! [Music stops as Hasselhoff picture leaves frame. Craig sighs.] [Craig walks out of the kitchen with his coffee and back towards camera. Sings to himself:] I love it when the coffee's done. [Sound of whale tank cover breaking. Craig freezes. Whale sounds.] Oh no! [Craig falls in the whale tank.] I'm in the whale aquarium again. David Hasselhoff? What are you doing here? Don't take your shirt off! No no no... aaaah! [A bright light emanates from the whale tank] I'm blind!
[James (the winker), who is standing under water that's falling on him:] Hi. Mr. Waiter, I'm James. I'm downstairs. Heard you got a new pet. [looks up. sound of whales] I think we need to talk. [winks (ding)]
[Wheezy Waiter sunglasses outro]
[outtakes:] [Craig slides out of frame and back in/singing rug] Hey guess what, beardlovers? I got another drive with one... [slides/singing rug]
