It might have taken a couple months, but the much anticipated second episode of Roomies is finally here! In this episode, I discover someone has been recording over my favorite TV Show, Breaking Bad. After both Estevez and Raj deny involvement, I take things into my own hands, set up and hidden camera, and wait for the culprit to reveal himself. After watching the footage…a lot more is revealed than anticipated!

What do you think happens next?

VIDEO: Black Man Staring at People

November 24, 201335 Comments

 

I told you guys I wanted to start doing social experiments and here is my first one! This video was shot at the University of Central Florida right before the Rutgers tailgate.

If you’re wondering how we filmed it, my friend Jonathan would go and sit down before me with a backpack and some shirts covering the camera, which you can see obscures the lens at times. After he gave me a signal, I would come in and commence the Black Man Staring At People. Definitely need a better setup though, cause I don’t have any lens that allows me to shoot people from SUPER far away. For the most part, the camera was right in front of everyone…they just never noticed it.

Not gonnna lie, it was highly awkward staring at these strangers. I didn’t really know what to say. Should I respond to their questions? Or would it be funnier if I just kept staring at them? In the end, I did end up laughing every time, I just cut each scene before you see it. And yes, I did let everyone know it was a prank. What do you guys think of my first social experiment? Should I keep going? Would you be interested in seeing some of the raw footage?

What social experiment should I do next?

How Much Money Do Viners Make – The Magruder Report

November 18, 20138 Comments

 

How much money do Viners make? Did you even know Viners were making money? What is Vine? This video should answer most of those questions.

I wanted to make this video since a lot of people don’t know anything about Vine, let alone the fact that people are making careers off 6-second videos. Hopefully, this video sheds some insight into one of the freshest apps of the year. Although the information was presented in a comical way, everything is 100% accurate.

Special thanks to my boys Eric Dunn and Tpindell for letting me film them. Also, follow me on Vine: @ScooterMagruder

Did you know people were getting paid for Vines?
