  1. It's fascinating how the computer managed to pick up so many running themes in the CH videos:
    – Katie's first line is about flirting
    – Grant's lines are all vaguely erotic
    – Siobhan mentioning celiac disease
    – Trapp criticising others' pitches
    – Katie gets depressive
    – Trapp in Sherlock costume
    – the last line reminds me of "because I am a shitty person" from that sketch about facebook friend request

    Did I miss anything?

  2. This is so awesome!
    At first it‘s like a psychedelic trip, then dadaism meets schizophrenia.
    But in the end it‘s existentialist and asks the big questions of epistomorology. I am not even kidding. I love this!
