Two Brothers' Hilarious Commentary on Their Old Home Videos

John and Richard Ramsey revisit their old VHS home videos from childhood, adding their own pitch-perfect DVD-style voiceover. Click through for two more videos.

Here two brothers, John and Richard Ramsey, turn the tables on that paradigm by adding pitch-perfect voiceover narration in the style of a DVD commentary. They call attention to subtle character arcs, dramatic editing decisions, and the cinematic artistry of the fourth character in the scene -- their mother holding the camera.
