Scrabble Breakup Video...where is it? November 23, 2008 10:55 AM   Subscribe

What was that video where an (old?) couple communicated through scrabble word placement?

It was a short YouTube video. I'm fairly sure I saw it on Metafilter, but can't find it now.

There was muisc, but no speaking. The man and woman communicated only through putting out different scrabble words. I think they were breaking up.

Thanks!

Dunno, but you find neat things when searching for "scrabble" on youtube.

Not your scrabble video, but one of the best scrabble videos: the show

I miss the show.

And I only play dirty word Scrabble. "Fornicate, Masturbate" and for the triple word score..."Vulvalicious"

Eideteker, that video is cool, but I don't think they're playing with a regular tileset. Too many easy words, not enough J/Q/X/Z crap.

Sadly, no one has yet uploaded the scene from Foul Play with the two old ladies playing Scrabble. We still think it's one of the funniest things ever filmed.

Is it possible that it wasn't a commercial, but a (terrible) music video for that curly-haired Canadian Idol contestant?

I don't know why I thought you thought it was a commercial.

You might want to take a look at a piece on Youtube entitled The Big Snit. It's a short piece of animation that features an old couple playing Scabble

The Big Snit was one of the first artworks to irrevocably blow my mind. I was about 10, and I saw it on Turkey Television on Nickelodeon (I think).

By the way, I hear if you spell "scrabble" on a scrabble board you unlock a secret bonus level.

Probably this? I searched for scrabble divorce.
