VIDEO: Paul Walks to SDCC: The Adventure Begins

Everyone has left for San Diego Comic Con. Except me. It’s raining here. It isn’t over there. I have an idea. 

Paul Walks to SDCC: The Adventure Begins from Paul Montgomery on Vimeo.

Tired of moping around in rainy Philadelphia, iFanboy staffer Paul Montgomery decides to walk to San Diego Comic-Con.


  1. very funny, sir

  2. I can be your intern on this merry adventure! I have my own wheels!

  3. AHH!!  A Talkboy recorder!  Awesome.

    Great stuff Paul.  Loved it.  Might I also suggest you carry  mace and a rape horn?  Can’t be too careful out on the road

  4. "I forgot to bring Gold Bond" – BRILLIANT!!!

  5. @Paul If you’re at all considering hitchhiking part of the way, you should try and get into a van, lean forward, and move your arms quickly back and forth. I’ve heard it feels like you’re running at an incredible rate (D&D). On second thought, don’t get into a van. Also if movies have taught us anything its placing a pin on a leaf on water will show you North; that may even be real.  Looking forward to all the interesting characters you’ll meet and road trip hijinks.

  6. …i kinda feel bad for paul

  7. Paul, at 10 seconds into the video you use air quotes (and use them very poorly). Therefore, I stopped watching the video and if I ever meet you I will be forced to break four of your fingers.

  8. "Now I’m thinking…that they didn’t account for timezones…so maybe I can make it there by Sunday."

    I laughed aloud, sir. Brilliant.

  9. Nice video. In the meantime, we can jive:

  10. haha nice

  11. Wait, is this the first installment of the new Blair Witch movie they’ve been talking about making?

  12. Thanks, I just got that crappy song out of my head, months after quitting a job that played it on their crappy radio station. Bahbah dahdah duhduhduhduh…

    *shakes fist* Montgomery!!

  13. Awesome and pitiful simultaneously.

  14. oh man that was great. I am at home with the flu and a good laugh is exactly what i needed.

  15. Bravo good sir.

    I loved that bindle thing at the end and just stating your using a backpack. Also, I think I recognize what neighborhood you live in 🙂

  16. Wouldn’t moss on all sides of the tree mean you were at the South Pole? SERIOUSLY.

  17. I can imagine Paul emerging in San Diego 3 Months later, looking all a shambles and falling to the ground infront of a ruined San Diego Convention Center screaming "YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP!"

    I’m making pretty good time. Typing this from a Wendy’s in West Philly.  

  19. Caulk the wagons and float!

    Also, 1.) the blanket IS endearing, and 2.) I never realized the TalkBoy was so boringly colored.  The purple TalkGirl is where it’s at!

    Paul, nice HOME ALONE 2 reference there.  Maybe that Talkboy will get you out of a scrap involving the Wet Bandits.  Also, BUNNICULA?  It doesn’t hold up.  I just reread it myself three months ago.  THE CELERY STALKS AT MIDNIGHT, however, is still brilliant.

    Oh and I laughed out loud at several moments during this video.  Well done, sir. 

  21. Haha great video.

  22. funny stuff man

    @JeffR – I am a huge fan of all the Bunnicula books, and Celery Stalks at Midnight is indeed one of the high points. That said, Bunnicula was lighter. So I packed that and Anathem.  

  24. OH man talk Boy…I still have that…and it still works

  25. I feel your pain, my friend.

    My girlfriend’s over at the Con as we speak, and she’s texting me updates. Meanwhile I’m at work, pacing back and forth, cursing my infernal luck. And, living in Riverside, I have no excuse not to be there. (CURSES, SOLD OUT TICKETS!)


  26. Outstanding as always sir.

    @Paul: What, was your copy of THE STAND loaned out to a friend or something?

  28. "I’m thinking they didn’t account for time zones…so maybe I can make it there by Sunday."

    Hahahahaha. Fantastic.

  29. A Talkboy recorder and Bunnicula?! Sir you packed part of my childhood into that backpack.

    Yes you’ve mentioned the Gold Bond before… 

  30. Oh the Talkboy….bringing back so many memories when I was 4.

    Mainly recording farts, but you know…

    Wonder if I could cut down my transportation time with a razor scooter…

  32. @ video: LOL

  33. @Paul-Segway!!

  34. So the grown-ups went off to Comic Con without all the kids.   But at least we’re being babysat by our cool, if slightly deranged, uncle.  

    Well done sir.

  35. @Paul: Do you have chickens in your backyard? It looks like you have something set up for that. lol

    The fencing is for the courier pigeons.  

  37. @Paul: Very bold choice. But I like the old school approach! Who needs iphones when a pigeon gets the job done?

  38. This is really funny-can’t wait for more.

  39. So Paul will be taking over the video show now. And we’re cool with that.

  40. "Good grief."

  41. @Josh – So are we.

  42. So… Paul is making a one-man sequel to the "Where the Wild Things Are" film that’s coming out? For some reason this reminded me of that trailer. :-p

  43. Though Bunnicula and The Celery Stalks at Midnight were both great I prefered Nightmare at the Howliday Inn.  Harold the Dog was one of my favorite characters from my childhood.  And dont worry Paul, I didnt get nearly enough out of my Ranger Rick subscription either.

  44. Paul should do the mini’s from now on. Let’s have a revival!!

  45. This is fantastic

  46. Bunnicula!

    This is brilliant.  

  47. Oh, Paul! Everything about you is endearing. You = awesome.

  48. Paul, you’re a funny guy.

  49. That was great. I hope we get to see more of these.

  50. Paul = Awesome

  51. Excellent video, Pmoney.  Bunnicula and Ranger Rick references in one video is unbelievable and awesome. 

  52. That was Awesome!!!:) and i went one of those Charlie Brown wrist bands. 

  53. Dude… that was funny.  Caught myself laughing out loud at least twice!

    "There is moss on all sides… That must mean we are at the north pole" hahaha
