  1. I find it ironic that 2 Brits are dissing on American convenience food. They are so NOT know for their food.

  3. That guys shirt is uglier than any Walmart clothing I've seen.

  4. Really? You guys are being defensive about one of the worst facets of our culture?

  5. I think they seem like fun, sweet guys, who are alternately amazed and horrified in the correct measure. And really @Curt, you are offended that they are dissing "Ham and cheese loaf"???

  6. They were super cute!

  7. I'd be more embarrassed by the douchey steampunk goggles.

  8. The first 3 commenters are offended about people making fun of Walmart? Really?

  9. Matthew take the stick out of your butt

  10. No Matthew they're not being pretentious - you don't understand, we Brits are always GENUINELY amazed at the stuff you get in your supermarkets. To us it's another planet.
    Ham and Cheese Loaf?? FFS! We still find it hard to believe Marshmallow Fluff exists.

    Now Marmite... now you're talking

  11. Curt, obviously you haven't lived in the UK of late as I have. France has awarded more Michelin stars to British restaurants than it has in America. I think your statement about the UK not being known for its food is really about the pot calling the kettle black. America is world renowned for its junk food, it invented it. The Brits don't have as much junk food as Americans have. Lighten up.

  12. Cute boys...cute vid. Wal-Mart Sucks!

  13. Adorable.

  14. I'm offended that it isn't funny.

  15. I'm not sure I got the impression they were being ironic or pretentious or anything like that. Maybe a little baffled and a little amazed and little horrified, but that just made it even funnier.

  16. I can't believe Towleroad posted one of Alex's videos here. I follow him (and his friend/roommate Charlie [charlieissocoollike]) on YouTube and they're always charming and funny.

  17. The kid on the right in the still (Alex?) has an absolutely HILARIOUS series of YouTube videos where he reads "Twilight" and gives a recap of each chapter. He's really a funny, funny kid and a good musician to boot. I hope he goes far.

  18. I thought they were cute and charming and I like the goggles. And CURT obviously didn't watch the video since they talked about food for about 3 seconds of the whole video.

  19. Alex is amazingly adorable. The other isn't so bad either.

  20. So funny. These two cuties had me cracking up - especially at the end with the eye patch! Very clever. "Tea in a Petrol can!" LOL!

  21. This is what passes for cute and funny? Sorry, I like my cute and funny to actually be cute and funny. And, seriously, steampunk goggles and he's making fun of ANYTHING else on Earth?

    PS to the uneducated boys in the video: California is not the "sunshine state". That's Florida. California is the "golden state".

    If you're coming to our country to mock us -- yes, even our Walmarts -- if you can't manage cute or funny, you might at least want to not be quite so ignorant about it.

  22. Points, though, for the modern dental work.

  23. "You should just put one of these in every neighborhood..."
    "That's what they want!"

    Too right. I don't know if he intentionally brought it up, or just stumbled upon the fact that Wal-Mart is the only store you need once it gets there, but I refuse to give them my money whenever possible because they run all other business out of town.

    In my hometown, the main drag used to have two super markets, a host of little clothing stores, sports equipment stores, etc. Now there's only Wal Mart and fast food restaurants. Whenever I visit my parents, I have to drive 7 miles to Wal Mart...or 25 miles to the next closest grocery store when there used to be two, 3 miles away, growing up.

    So I'm all for any video that makes fun of Wal-Mart and lazy Americans.

  24. Wow. Thin-skinned comments! They were just having a little fun marveling at the phenomena that is Wal-Mart.

    Posted by: Mike | Jul 26, 2011 11:50:02 AM

  25. I hardly ever read the comments anymore because of the bitter queens who can't lighten up.
