    I don't know why, but the part of the intro with, "Took a Sabbatical," always makes me laugh.

    Does anyone else find split-screen really disorienting?  If I want to understand visually what's happening I always have to go back and pause.  I wonder if starting the split-screen at least a couple seconds before whatever action they are trying to show occurs so that we can adjust to the new view would help?, but maybe it's better to do away with it altogether.


    It seems to me like most of the time split-screen's been used in AH videos lately we could understand more clearly what's happening (and sometimes even infer the other perspective) just by seeing a single viewpoint.  I'm thinking here of the dual takedown @2:50 and also the simultaneous takeouts from the last Gunrunning GTA video.  I feel like in those two instances the split-screen actually obfuscated the action rather than clarifying it.  I think that split-screen works a little better in a GTA stunt or race scenario, but even in those cases maybe just using a 2 or 3 second replay from the other perspective is more effective (as long as the replay wouldn't block out some other important and exciting event).


    I definitely appreciate the editing conundrum that is simultaneous action, but I just really don't find the split-screen view to be an effectual solution.  Let me know if y'all disagree with me.

      To me it's less about making the action "clear" and more about how satisfying it is to watch the synchronized murder.

      @LoadingFriend I totally get what you are saying.  I think though that part of what I am trying to explain is that I'm not actually "seeing" two synchronized kills because my eye can't process the split-screen perspective.  And in those rare instances where I am able to comprehend the side-by-side view, the act of changing over from one view to two is still disillusive.  So for me, an edit that in theory should be really satisfying and engrossing, in practice ends up decreasing my satisfaction and pulling me out of the video.  


      As I briefly mentioned, it could very well be that my disorientation is more a result of the change in perspective being too close to the moment of action; that in truth it's the proximity of the cut to its focal event and not the cut itself that is causing this friction for me.  Split-screen seems like it should be the exact perfect solution to simultaneous co-op action (and it sounds like it is for most people), and maybe it could even work for my simple eyes if it were implemented a little differently.


      Also, looking more closely at the split-screen in this video, I think it was particularly visually confusing to me because Ryan and Jeremy's characters' viewpoints ended up being placed oppositely to those characters real position in-game.  Although initially the views and characters were synced, the camera swiveling 180˚ meant that for most of the fall and takedown the two views were on the opposite side of their characters.  I think this spatial disconnect aggravated the visual discombobulation that I already experience during cuts from single view to side-by-side.  The split-screen in the last Gunrunning GTA didn't disrupt my viewing experience as strongly, and reflecting on it now, that was probably because the layout of views corresponded to the spatial relationship of the characters.  


      Of course, I also have to acknowledge that I certainly wasn't there while this video was being edited, and in all likelihood the editor immediately noticed the 180˚ pan, tried both possible split-screen layouts, and decided that misalignment --> alignment was actually much more visually confusing than alignment --> misalignment, and so they opted for the latter.


      And in the end the most likely answer here is probably just that I'm going blind.

    I'm surprised that they didn't do this in as a one take I suppose it makes sense with the commentary but this could have definitely be done in one take

      Us older folk, and most likely what Ryan was actually referencing, know it from the movie, "Big".


      Down down baby, down down the roller coaster.
      Sweet sweet baby, sweet sweet don't let me go.

      I met a girlfriend- a triscuit,
      She said a triscuit-a biscuit.

      I meant it. I said it.
      I stole my mama's credit.

      Jeremy talked about this is one of his streams. He said they were planning to do it, but already had a couple Battle Buddies filmed, so I'm pretty sure they would've done it by now but it won't be out for another 1 or 2 videos.

    These videos are always a lot of fun to watch, it is very clear those two were not only more successful with this mission but they had a LOT of fun with the UAV. When it comes to racking up kills you can find no better pair than the Battle Buddies to put the enemy six feet under XD.

    I kinda wish they'd stuck with the "deaths are for the bloopers at the end" style of editing, but great video nevertheless.
