Letterkenny Problems – Canadian Screen Award Nominee!

24 Feb

A few months back I shared a post about Letterkenny Problems. A YouTube series, and might I say sensation, near and dear to my heart.

Well as it would turn out Letterkenny Problems has been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award in the category of  Best Original Program or Series produced for Digital Media.

If you’re not yet familiar with the Canadian Screen Awards they were previously two events – The Gemini Awards and the Genie Awards. But now the Canadian Screen Awards recognize all things great in Canadian Television, Film and Digital Media.

So on March 4th keep your fingers crossed and check those Twitter feeds to see if Letterkenny has won. But to paraphrase a text from my Mom “OMG I just realized they might still WIN an award! I was just so excited they were nominated!!!” Frankly, I too couldn’t be more ridiculously proud than I already am and just knowing the brain child of these two childhood pals is something that people are watching and quoting is enough to put a smile of my face.

So check out the post from June 2013 below with a  couple of new videos added, and have a laugh or two with the boys of Letterkenny.

WARNING – Language may not be appropriate for everyone. So earmuffs for the kids please!

Some of my favourite people in the entire world come from a little tiny town in Ontario. Two that are especially near and dear to my heart are The Husband and his BFF Jared Keeso. A few months back they started a Twitter account recounting the all too true tales of the things that happen in their hometown and it caught on like wildfire.

So Jared being the talented actor, writer and producer that he is, approached The Husband about the idea of turning their Twitter account into a series of shorts.

Well I’m happy to announce that the boys have struck a chord. They may come from a small town in Ontario, but as it turns out – people from small towns all over the place can relate to the tales these two are telling. The first instalment of Letterkenny has over 130,000 views on Funny or Die and has been given “Immortal” status.

So here you have the first 3 episodes of Letterkenny Problems. Enjoy! And hey – if you like these – tell your friends 🙂
