Try Right-Clicking and Save Target As... instead of just clicking on it.

I saw it but couldn't figure out wtf it was, looked like some high schooler borrowed his parents camera to tape the drama club.

I think it's a group of Dungeons & Dragons guys living out one of their games. It's hilarious.

I actually used to play AD&D back in the mid 80s, but I don't remember ever dressing up. It was a game played with dice, pen and paper. Funny clip. Posted Image

[David] "Hi, would you like to go out with me?"
[Jill] "Ok, sure!"
[David] "Neato! We'll go to my AD&D club together and you can watch me kick some ass!"
[Jill] "AD&D? Cool! Is that like martial arts?!"
[David] "Martial arts? [snort] No, stupid! It's much better than THAT! Sheesh. You'll see!@"

Cut to the big day

[David] "Lightning bolt! Lightning bolt! Lightning bolt!"
(...oh man, I'm SO kicking ass today! She looks amazed!)
[David] "Lightning bolt! Lightning bolt! Lightning bolt!"

Cut to drive home

[Jill] "Uh, David we...."
[David] (annoyed) "I thought I told you my name is Garthon the Isolated!"
[Jill] "uh...can you please take me home now?"

Man, what a bunch of nerds!!!

At least when me and my friends made the Dungeon & Dragons movies(yes movies, 1,2 & 3) we had plots and special effects and stuff(my favourite was me, Balmar, turning Tagu the dwarf, into a plastic frog).

It shocks me that there are actually girls there. One of them in "battle"! The one with the giant hammer.

Posted Image No, thankfully my brief interest in D&D was prior to my discovery of the opposite sex. Posted Image

Too funny. That one's a keeper.

This is comedy. I've replayed it about 20 times and the comedy still isn't fading.

In the background you can clearly see the "Garage Fortress of Guildehan" along with "Ye Olde Basketball Hoop". Very authentic.

This video has been around for awhile. As I commented the original time I saw it: These nerds need to get a clue! They have it all wrong!

Not only is the mage casting lightning bolt too many times, he's also casting them MUCH to fast. The combat turn in D&D is much slower. The mage should be spending most of the round chanting in preparation to cast the spell. And given the amount of times he casts it, he is a very powerful archmage. If thats the case, then why does he use that spell over and over? Lightning bolt increases with the casters power, so once is often enough.

The alternative is that he's using some sort of wand or staff of power to cast the spell. Lightning bolts from that are of much lesser power, however again the spells are coming way too fast. And then there is the big problem that he's casting this spell from WAY too close. A quick look at the range of the spell shows that the bolt has to reach its full length, otherwise it will rebound toward the caster. Standing as close as he is to the target, that poor mage would in real life be toasty.

Then there is the problem with the other spell cast. Some ignorant mage cast a sleep spell as well. Sleep, as any competent magic user knows, only works against lower level creatures, and can simply be ignored by more powerful denizens of the monster world. Don't these nerds know anything?

They found my psych results fit a certain profile. A certain "Moral flexibility" would be the best way to describe it....

I think the next time someone pisses me off at work I'm going to throw pencils at them and scream "lightning bolt".

Hey, don't laugh... it worked for the guy in the video.
