    I would buy the RT fan. In fact, it would be cool if the fan had LEDs in the blades that would create an image when spinning. Better yet, have the ability to change the image maybe to Achievement Hunter, RWBY, RT Podcast or other logos.

    honestly...... the plates weren't THAT bad of an idea... just sayin...

      I think that was the joke. Burnie and Chris threw away the one thing people would actually buy thinking it's useless.

      The joke was no one liked RTES, it got really bad numbers. So they're basically saying the plate thing was a good idea, but no one liked RTES enough to buy one of theirs. They're making fun of themselves.

    Good funny short. Though when Chris was talking about rainy days I couldn't help but think of Rooster Teeth umbrellas. But I'd imagine the market for those would be pretty low.

    Good short! Was absolutely busting a gut, love the 'office life' style shorts.

    Seeing content positing the notion of women with dicks as absurd is a bit frustrating though.

    Hasn't Burnie said on multiple occasions he'd be interested in watching his friends have sex just out of curiosity?

    ok some girls do have penises but that RTES joke just made up for the casual cissexism. Also that guy at the end had very yellow urine. He needs to stay hydrated!

      For a minute there I felt like Chris was about to say something like "some do" but at least I can pretend he was thinking it.

    So did Burnie say $400 instead of $40?

    • Eseer FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      He added up all ten million dollars sold. Which would be around $400

      If I remember right because it was a while ago. A fan who's like some kind of graphic artist or something like that gave it to him at one of the RTX events.
      If you look closely at it, it has all dialogue from Season 1 of Red vs Blue on it. It's pretty much a script in poster form.

    For real, though, I think the fan has potential. Just make them those little hand-held battery fans. Or those water bottle fans that were super popular however many years ago! Those need to make a comeback.

    I think a USB Rooster Teeth Fan that's red with their logo on it would totally sell. AH Fan would be green. Funhaus would be orange. Screw Attack, blue. Each with their logos.

    You know how sometimes you watch something really funny and, somehow, the part that made you laugh the hardest wasn't even the main joke? For some reason, just imagining the jarring juxtaposition between porn and the Slow Mo Guys' usual background music was hilarious to me.
