Another one could be Rasputin, getting hit with all sorts of stuff that would normally kill someone and ending the video with him getting hit by something non-lethal and possibly ridiculous and then finally dying.
I don't know if that is accurate. There are a lot of employees now at Roosterteeth. I think they have enough personnel to simultaneously produce live action and machinima. Regardless, they do not need to do all the machinima up front.
I do love the series, however I find it very hit or miss. Some are drop dead hilarious (Hitler/Che/John Smith) and some are just boring or down right weird (Titanic/Lincoln/Bob Dylan). I adore the Che one though. I laughed my ass off soooooo hard.
Gus has always been ridiculously good at acting. It's just like one of those talents that you never really knew you had 'til you tried it, and it especially shows in the Live Action shorts (Frag Dude/Moustache Thief/ect...).
