Another Youtube series about Unicorns that cracks me up

This series, which may be familiar to many of you, is even more amusing to me than Planet Unicorn. I think it's because it's a lot more of a direct subversion of unicorn myths and quest stories. Instead of being pure graceful creatures, two of the unicorns are evil and annoyingly inane, while the third (the protagonist) is a bitter cynic that horrible things happen to. Without further ado, let me introduce you to Charlie the Unicorn:

Episode 1:

Episode 2:

An ad the creators made for Youtube Live (I love the Rick Astley=Cthulhu idea; I think anyone who's ever been Rick Rolled would agree with the sentiment):

My sister and I will sometimes call each other, say simply "Charlieeeeee" in an inane high pitched voice, and then hang up. What has the internet wrought?!

Hey Moj, I moderate comments. It's to prevent riffraff like you...I mean, trolls and spammers from hijacking comment threads on the blog. Wasn't I totally the one who told you about the first part of the clip you linked to, by the way? Freaky stuff. Anyone else reading- I'll leave the comment with this link up, but be warned it is rated R.
