Fun Diversion – Kevin James’ Sound Guy videos

Happy yet another ‘what day is it’ friends! Hope you’re all coping as well as you could during this quarantine/lockdown/shelter-in-place or whatever else it’s called. Sounds like there is light at the end of the tunnel… as more places like malls, restaurants, etc. have opened even at half capacity. I’m waiting with bated breath for salons to finally open!!!

Now, I normally don’t post about YouTube channels… this is still primarily a film blog, but I’ve actually been wanting to post about Kevin James as Sound Guy videos since I discovered it about a month ago!

Ryan Gosling Won’t Give Me A Soundcheck

It was actually my husband who showed it to me and I thought it was hilarious!! Though I haven’t seen all of his movies (I’ve only seen trailers of the Paul Blart movies), I do think Kevin James is funny, I mean he’s so much more fun to watch in Hitch than Will Smith.

If you check out his YT channel, the Star Wars Sound Guy video debuted in mid February, and he’s got a new one up every week or two since. It’s such a brilliant idea for a serialized short and the possibilities are endless! They did such a nice job editing it that made it look seamless!

The SW video where Sound Guy discovers the truth that Darth Vader is Luke’s father is the perfect one to start with, and as many fans know, it’s probably what happened. It’s no secret anymore that the crucial bit of info about Vader’s real identity was kept confidential only between George Lucas, James Earl Jones, and Mark Hamill, so it’s very likely that the real sound guy would have reacted the same way he did, ha!

My favorite has got to be this one from The Notebook! I’ve watched it countless times and LOL-ed every single time!

This one with the crazy shoot-out is pretty hilarious as well… especially since Kevin worked with Will Smith in HITCH and the comedian’s performance was easily one of my fave parts about that rom-com.

Now, the editing of this one is incredible!! It looks absolutely realistic and seamless, I mean the cinematography, lighting work here that matched the real film is amazing. Love the moment where the Sound Guy sang into the boom mic, priceless!!

I think if you go to his channel now, there are more fun videos of the Sound Guy adventure in famous movie scenes, ha!


Have you seen these vids? Which other movies do you want to see the Sound Guy do next?
