Promotion for Web-a-Sodes

Watch He's Talking Dead Eh, a great show about the last dudes left on earth who gotta find beer, chicks, and food and all the while fend off terrible urban zombies, rural zombies, zombie bees, and zombie ants.

 Sodes (1 and a 2)


Greg and D have mixed feelings about being the last two knobs on earth, and decide to go find some food and shit. They hope they are not attacked by terrible zombies or ants.
 


Greg and D decide to return to the city but run into a major pity when they are attacked by a surviving commando who is involved in military arts once again. Will they be able to cope?


Gregis and D-Head?
Similarity

An odd similarity exists between the pilot episode of He's Talking Dead Eh which aired November 9, 2011 and an episode of Beavis and Butthead which aired on December 1, 2011 (approx. one month later).

The premise, story, and dialogue between the characters is very similar. Especially in one particular scene. A cheesy wind sound is playing in the background while the respective heroes assess their respective situations...

In He's Talking Dead Eh (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxKOo98O8_k), watch from around 1:15 to 1:50.

In Beavis and Butthead (http://www.mtv.ca/tvshows/beavis-and-butthead/video_content.jhtml?id=1675253), watch from around 2:29 to 3:03.

He's Talking Dead Eh didn't steal this bit. It aired almost one month prior to this episode of Beavis and Butthead, any similarity is just a coincidence.

"Influences"

To be fair, the show is inspired by the following:

1. Bob and Doug McKenzie (particularly the opening scene of "Strange Mawfucking Brew" where Bob is the last man on earth)

2.Bruce Campbell (his heroics in the face of evil deadites)

3. The Three Stooges expressions and slapshtick

4. Beavis and Butthead (the intelligence level of our intrepid protagonists).

We have our "influences" but we did not steal the above bit, and the dates are the proof.
