Today We Bring You A Story Of Love



Yes, this may border on sacrilegious in some Janeites' eyes, but after all, "for what do we live but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?"

OH MY. This P&P Duo is off the wall! I laughed very hard, although cringed at times as they made SUCH fun out of an immortal story... :D Wow. Quite unique.

I know, the first time I saw it I was a bit appalled at how much fun they poked at it, but the second viewing really made me laugh. It's really more of a spoof on the 1995 movie than anything else, I think.

As much as I love P&P, this is one of the most hilarious videos I have ever seen!!! I've watched it three times!! =)

Payton,
Ooh, good, I'm glad you like it! Haha, I was a bit afraid that nobody but me was going to find it hilarious, but your comment and Julia's comment made me happy. :) My siblings LOVE to go around quoting, "Will you marry me?" "No-o..."

Payton Wilson said...

My favorite part I think is the very beginning....

"Today we bring you a story of love..."
"LOVE!"
"Romance..."
"ROMANCE!"
"And denial."
*screams* "DENIAL!"

=) haha, so funny! I just posted it on my blog.

Miss Dashwood said...

Hahahaha, personally *I* love:
"I have been a selfish being AWL my life."
*sniffs pretend flower* "MMM-hmmm."

ROFL! I'm glad you put it on your blog, more people need to see this. :)

this is an AWESOME duo. I saw it performed at NCFCA nationals...the room was PACKED (bout 100-200 ppl) and ROARING.
thanks for posting!

HOW do these guys do it all with a straight face? SERIOUSLY! I laughed till I cried. They are SO good.

Jessica said...

Can't believe you found this! I know these guys! Yes, it is a bit appalling - but still funny some how...someway.

This. Is. Epic!!!!!!!!!!!!! I watched it with my siblings and we were all dying laughing! Yes, I like to think of myself as a true Janeite (I'm very dedicated to P&P 1995), but I love this!! Haha!! The dance was hilarious, and I think we all died from merriment during the proposal!!

Darcy: (knock, knock)

Elizabeth: Oh! (goes to open door)

Darcy: (slams it open in her face)

Thanks for posting!! :D

Well, this is the sixth or seventh time I've watched this, and I can finally bring myself to say it: This is HILARIOUS! I must say, though, it's much funnier the fifth time than the first time. The first time, I watched it for about two minuets, exclaimed "SACRILEGE!", and turned it off. My favorite part is the first proposal; the way that fellow says "And may I offer my best wishes for your health and happiness" sounds positively menacing, and thus, quite funny under the circumstances.
