      With the green screen I thought you might have done a tribute Leslie Neilsen, a la Police Squad.

      Or fool with the TrickPlay Users, one talks faster the other slower. And the end do the false ending where everyone freezes except for one.

      Hey, trick play! I had no idea that'd be in there. I've been waiting for this feature on Channel 9 since... being on Channel 9. I always download the videos and play them at 1.4x speed, this'd allow me to just use the Silverlight player right away.

      Also maybe *cough* this *cough* *cough* can be reopened at some point. Smiley

      Also: Dan should grow that mustache again for the next C9 Halloween video, because man that looked terrifying.

      Like the "junk app" that let you post here telling Microsoft to kill HTML 5?  Did you not notice that you were on a Web site?

      @AdamSpeight2008: Man, we should have you write a script for us, that'd be hilarious!

      @Bas: We'll definitely add it to Channel 9 once SL 5 officially releases.

      VS Feature Pack 2 isn't available for MAPDD subscribers. Sad

      Another thing you can do with the green screen is displaying what just recorded as the background. Then you get that cool and trippy effect of the infinite tunnel.
