Friday Free-for-All: Chad, Matt & Rob

Today's Friday Free-For-All is going to focus on some friends of mine, the comedy team of "Chad, Matt & Rob." Last week they released their latest comedy short - a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure piece called "The Birthday Party." By taking advantage of You Tube's annotation feature, they've been able to set it so that when a particular video ends, you are presented with a choice to make, and three clickable links that will send you to the corresponding video.

Chad, Matt & Rob pioneered this sort of comedy over a year ago with their first Choose-Your-Own-Adventure "The Time Machine." This was the first of its kind and they even got written up in the Wall Street Journal.

However they've also done some straight up comedy ones too. Their most popular one is known as "Roommate Alien Prank Goes Bad" aka "Chad Hates Aliens" which has over 12 million views on YouTube alone!

I'm also a big fan of some of their others, such as "Prison Break," with the instant catchphrase "Somebody grab my balls!"

And "Cops & Robbers"

They have many more, so be sure to check them out at their site. And please, pass along "The Birthday Party" to all your friends. Mark my words, you'll be hearing a lot from these guys in the coming years.
