Video: “Now You ‘C’ Me”

Occasionally we make YouTube videos out of short audio clips from the show. This one was originally the intro skit to Episode 131: “Cookies”, and features the One Word, Go! Show’s Mat playing the classic TV game show The $100,000 Pyramid with Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster. I like to ponder about what led up to this moment. Was Mat just wandering down Sesame Street one day, seeking help with his ABCs and 1-2-3s, when suddenly Cookie Monster approaches him with this amazing opportunity? Or perhaps Cookie Monster was invited to be on the “Cookies” episode of the One Word, Go! Show, and this was simply his screening process? We may never know.

Throwback – Special: “The New Claus”


Christmas is fast approaching, and you know what that means: A new One Word, Go! Christmas Special! Just in case you forgot the epic adventure the One Word, Go! crew went on last year, we thought we’d repost 2014’s Special called The New Claus.

Without spoiling anything, we can tell you that an infamous character that was introduced in The New Claus appears in the 2015 Special. If you’ve yet to listen, we highly suggest you do.

Talk to you soon!

From the original post:

Merry Christmas from all of us at OWG!

In this year’s Christmas Special, events from last year’s Twelve Words of Xmas have come back to haunt the One Word, Go! Show crew! Mat, Dan, Fish, and Andrew venture outside Mat’s living room and into North Pole, Alaska, where an old friend is being held hostage by Twinklenose, an elf with a height complex and a gun.

Video: “Jerry Security Cam Footage”

Back in October of 2014, we posted a video called “You’re Going To Hell, Jerry” which was handheld footage of a fight between Dan and a random man who entered his place of work. We finally got a hold of the security camera footage of this fight, and thought we’d share it with you.

Here’s the info from the original post:

On Episode 70 of The One Word, Go! Show Dan told an interesting story:

He was working peacefully, minding his own business, when a man abruptly entered the store and began demanding to have him fax napkins. Unable to help the man because first, Dan doesn’t have a fax machine, and second, you can’t fax napkins, the man got upset, threw his wallet and ID on the counter, and demanded to see “Jerry” because he “took his kids”. Dan doesn’t know anyone named Jerry, and explained just that. The man, still crazy, fled the store.

He spent the next ten minutes in the parking lot, screaming at passing vehicles, before finally entering the store again. That’s when he peered into Dan’s eyes, and announced, “YOU’RE JERRY!” (What a twist!) (Dan isn’t actually Jerry.)

The insane man then approached Dan and slammed the computer monitor down on the counter. Before Dan could even react, the man lunged at him, sucker punching him right in the kisser. Dan, adrenaline pumping, grabbed the flailing lunatic and pinned him to the ground. That’s where this video picks up.

To those worried, Dan is OK. He went to the doctor and came out with nothing but a black eye and a fat lip. To find out more, listen to Episode 70: “Treasure”.

Happy Birthday to our Community Mom!

♫ Happy birthday, dear Sheila Shelley! ♫

It’s Mat’s Mom’s birthday! You may not know this, but Shelley is an integral part of The One Word, Go! Show. She has helped Dan, Fish, Andrew, and especially Mat out of so many jams in the past that, without her, we probably wouldn’t be here today.

The love, support, and natural “motherliness” Shelley provides to us has awarded her the title of “Community Mom”. We’ve never met another human being like her, who would willingly put aside everything going on in her own busy life, in order to drive you to the doctor after being shot in the eye with a BB gun, or bring your Crazy Carpets to school because you forgot them at home and all the other kids were having way more fun than you, or allow you to live at her place and eat her food when you have nowhere else to go, or search the entire city for your stolen 1996 Dodge Neon for hours and hours in the middle of the night (including the darkest corners of the shadiest neighborhoods). Selfless acts such as these (and many, many, many more) inspire us to be less selfish. They remind us to think twice before turning our heads away from the flipped over semi on the highway. We know to help the bleeding stranger who got too close to a swinging golf club, instead of deciding “not my problem!”. Mat’s Mom, Shelley, is a genuine super hero.

To celebrate, we’ve gathered nearly every single appearance Shelley has made on the show below. Enjoy!


hobbies

Episode 31: “Hobby”

Today on the show, Dan builds a robot in his closet, Breanne puts a spin on the classic swear jar, Mat realises he doesn’t have any hobbies, and Mat’s Mom steals a car while filling in for Fish, who is away in Mexico, getting it on with several different men.

Check out the original post here.


Clip from Episode 37: “Truth”

In order to celebrate Breanne’s final episode of the show, we all decided to play a game of Truth or Dare. In this clip, Mat dares Breanne to call Shelley and wish her a happy birthday (and it wasn’t her birthday.) Hilarity ensues.


time

Episode 38: “Time”

Today’s word is “time” submitted by Courtney! This week, Mat and Fish live their lives according to their own time, Dan gets shot in the eye and throws up on puppies, and Mat’s Mom cold-heartedly denies her children ice cream. Don’t forget to vote for next week’s word!

Check out the original post here.


Extra: “Punch A Dog In The Face”

Once a week during the month of March, we’ll be sharing some bonus clips with you. These are clips from either our sound-checks, or just bits that never made it into the main episodes for whatever reason. Today’s extra is from Episode 38‘s soundcheck, and is called “Punch a Dog in the Face”!

Check out the original post here.


fire

Episode 49: “Fire”

Today’s word is “fire” submitted by Ian N! On this episode, Mat, Dan, and Shelley discuss setting bathtubs ablaze, leaving poop on Granny’s pillow, being in a coma for four months, firing worthless employees, and the importance of fire safety. Note: Dan does not actually abuse animals. He was 7 years old and dumb. The cat ended up being A-OK. Don’t hurt animals.

Check out the original post here.


Episode 63: “Cellphones”

This week’s word is “cellphones”, sent to us by Sincere! Today on the show, Mat learns his Grandmother’s breast size, Fish takes her cell phone for a roof-of-the-car ride, Andrew talks about the time his sister let her phone hibernate, Mat’s Mom sends her not-flip-phone swimming in a pool of Pepsi, and Granny has no idea what the heck is going on.

Check out the original post here.


Extra: “Super Smash Mother”

Mat’s Mom attempts to name all of the currently announced characters from Super Smash Bros. 4. I’ve seen a lot of pictures floating around online of the same nature, and decided to do a version of my own. Completely unscripted, I think she did OK… For a non-gaming mother.

This is our #1 most viewed of anything we’ve ever put out. Without a doubt. And it wouldn’t have been possible without Shelley.


Please leave a comment below and wish Shelley a Happy Birthday!
