I have not fully formed an opinion about this because I have not watched the whole thing, nor do I really plan on watching the whole thing. But here is what I probably think about it:
I respect the ambition and follow-through-edness of the people who made this. I also like that this all happened in a back yard in Lincoln, Nebraska. For some reason, that makes it more charming to me. That being said… this doesn’t really seem like my kind of thing. For one, it is a musical. Musicals are not my thing. And for two, it is a one hour and 45 minute long web video. I max out on web patience at about the four minute mark.
Nonetheless, I feel like this is a monumental enough undertaking to earn a place on every pop culture blog type thing, and I feel obligated to do my part to help. This apparently first appeared on Reddit, and then on Urlesque and now here. Good luck.
