What people are saying about the Dating Grim Bad Date Videos:
A few insiders have had a chance to get a preview of what the theatrical show and the video shorts of Dating Grim look like, and here's what they have to say:
Melinda W.: "You know, I was Googling myself for the fourth time the other day, and I accidentally misspelled my name as Dating Grim Bad Date Videos. Boy, was I shocked when I saw what turned up! Wow, these are funny! They're the top of the pops!"
Franklyn G.: "Wow, I just saw one of the 'Bad Date' videos, and it was so funny, I pooped myself. I mean, that's not to say that I don't poop myself regularly, because I do, but this was a different kind of pooping. It was special."
A relative of a certain Ninja: "I'd like to kill this Death guy so he wouldn't cut into our online territory, but he's already dead. Or undead. Either way, anyone that can take a shuriken to the eye like that and not flinch is okay with me."
