      Janus – I know what you mean. I’ve never quite understood the appeal of Fred – but we’re obviously not the target audience.

      I’m impressed, thought, at how Cruikshank has done things that no other video blogger has done.

  3. We did this before.

    It was called Alvin and the Chipmunks.
