Misadventures: The Deepening (NSFW)

By Kieron Gillen on September 23rd, 2009 at 11:20 am.

Crawl out of bed late to see Simon Parkin pointing this out before being very mean indeed to RPS, the bast. Anyway – The Deepening is basically the Beastie Boys’ old Sabotage video, but done as a mildly-NSFW choose your own adventure. It has one ending with basically the routine artist-comrade Jamie McKelvie and I do in front of other people at cons, which is always good to see. I quite like it. See what you think.

    i watched it, mesmerized and in awe. i couldn’t put its awfulness into words if i tried for days.

    Oh my god, my brain went into it’s emergency shutdown sequence watching that windows 7 thing. I need to go lie down before I watch any of the other stuf.

    Disregard the awful win7 video, the Deepening is awesome!

  4. Stuk says:

    Windows 7 party = jaw-droppingly bad
    Deepening = fantastic

  5. Schmung says:

    oh lawd, The Deepening is ace. Seriously amusing.

  6. Cooper says:

    That windows 7 video is awful. Love YouTube comments threads though:

    “I wonder what time they all start sucking each other off.”

  7. Benny says:

    Too. many. primary. colours.

  8. Lobotomist says:

    Haha, great!

    You can practically hear the actors in that Windows 7 video pronouncing the ™s in the script every time they say a product or feature name.

    So, which of the RPS crew was which in that Windows 7 party video?

    The old woman was obviously John Walker.

  11. Davee says:

    Windows 7 Launch party! Wait, what?! *faints*

    On another note, that interactive movie was pretty fun.

      Damn it, netlag made me post twice. Remove one if you can – please! D:

  13. Buckermann says:

    Yeah!
    I killed everybody at my first try. What do I win?

  14. Hoernchen says:

    So.. which one of the RPS dudes is black/female ?

  15. Mr. Sinister says:

    The Deepening is hilarious. So is the Windows 7 party video. But each for entirely different reasons.

  16. theleif says:

    That Win 7 launch party infomercial was even more scary that the teletubbies mod for L4D.

  17. Shalrath says:

    I do not understand this Windows 7 thing. I’m… confused. What the fuck is happening? Party with your.. windows… laptop…? Do they play Left4Dead or anything?

    I … don’t get it.

  18. Rei Onryou says:

    Is it wrong that I could easily imagine Kieron as Bokowski throughout The Deepening?

    Win 7 people:

    Geek = Meer
    MILF = Kieron
    Granny = Walker
    Racial Minority = Rossignol (through process of elimination)

  19. Knight Of Cydonia says:

    You had me at “MILF=Kieron”.

  20. TeeJay says:

    You need to watch up until the end of the Win7 video where they discuss how to prevent guests discovering the folder containing all your porn videos

    Rei: I actually found myself thinking “He looks a lot like me” at several points. Not least when he went for the Karate.

    Unnecessary Censorship version of the windows 7 video. Awesome

  23. Mad Doc MacRae says:

    That’s the deepest I’ve ever been with another man.

  24. Crispy says:

    As my flatmate pointed out, perhaps this is an ingenious message-at-all-costs method of simply reminding people that Windows7 is out soon, one so bad and so fit for viral dissemination it simply cannot be ignored?

    I still had to wipe sick from the side of my mouth after watching it, though.
