How about another video...

CounterClockwiseComedy roasts movies and puts on improv shows every month at Screenland. Here is a little taste of how that goes:

If you want to download the audio track off the CounterClockwise Comedy account at, it’s $1.99. Then you just play it alongside your copy of the movie, a la Pink Floyd and The Wizard of OZ (but with less psychedelics and more laughter). There are detailed instructions in the track itself of where to sync it up with the movie.
