    I watched this yesterday, I was laughing so hard I was almost crying.

    I especially like the hose in the pool and the car sitting on 14s.

  2. ClutchDude says:

    Hi-la-rious…..”That’s math all over your face!!!!!”.

    As an off note, at 1:11, there is a handle/tank thing….what the heck is that? One of my brother’s had one exactly like that and never got a straight answer from them.

    Ahhh, so that’s what Robot Chicken money can get you.

    Mr. Puggleface is my financial advisor

  5. pecan 3.14159265 says:

    I really, really want the “Welcome, yo” doormat. Anyone have any idea where I can get it?

  6. Possinator says:

    I laughed pretty hard when he called his fold out couch a transformer

  7. emis says:

    Yo!? Where my hose at??

  8. pecan 3.14159265 says:

    What is also really funny is that the house is really nice inside if you ignore the furniture and just look at the walls and kitchen.

  9. Papercutninja says:

    See, Jamie Kennedy? There IS a way to play hip-hop white guy and BE FUNNY AT THE SAME TIME.

    Seth Green rules.

  10. NightElfMohawk says:

    Aww, Kenny Fisher’s matured so much in the past 10 years… guess he actually paid attention in class at UCLA…

    I understand how this is supposed to be comical and informative, but, it just urks me that they used a relatively rich (and worry free) person to extol the benefits of living within ones means. In real life, i’m sure Seth drives a pretty nice and expensive car, lives in a very large house, and actually has a Playstation. I have a modest house, my wife and i drive old reliable cars, i don’t need Seth Green to pretend like he is slumming it down.

    • pecan 3.14159265 says:

      @steveliv: Who are they going to get though? Will Smith, who makes $20 million a movie? Tom Hanks, who makes about the same? One of the kids from Slumdog Millionaire who live off probably $1 a day and just had their homes torn down?

      • steveliv says:

        @pecan 3.14159265: I was thinking, if they had included, amongst the famous people, perhaps an average joe, who we can identify with. It comes off as arrogant, when wealthy people proceed to educate me on saving and scrimping money.

        • pecan 3.14159265 says:

          @steveliv: I really don’t read into this video as evidence that anyone should be taking advice from Seth Green. Or anyone else. I don’t care if John and Mary Lou from Minneapolis are saving money. I don’t care if Seth Green drives a Porsche. I simply don’t read into this video as anything but pretty hilarious and a slam against the extravagances of the ridiculously wealthy represented by MTV Cribs (and some of them aren’t so outrageous).

          • steveliv says:

            @pecan 3.14159265: i would agree with you 100% if it weren’t for the fact that it is part of a larger tv show whose synopsis is the following: “Special where celebrities discuss today’s money issues.”

            • katstermonster says:

              @steveliv: Oh well, this is hilarious. Although perhaps MC Hammer would have been a better celeb to tell us about living within our means…haha.

            • pecan 3.14159265 says:

              @steveliv: But also look at what you’re saying: celebrities discuss today’s money issues. Nothing about that suggests you should take it seriously…plus the title of the program is “Un-broke” which obviously conveys that it is just as serious as a CSPAN airing of a Senate committee hearing on today’s money issues.

              It’s ok. It’s just funny.

        • nakedscience says:

          @steveliv: Your sense of humor is lacking.

          • steveliv says:

            @nakedscience: my sense of humor is working correctly. i didn’t say i think it wasn’t humorous, its just they way they are going about it, isn’t sitting well with me.

            • nakedscience says:

              @steveliv: good god, is that stick up your bum hurting you or what?! it’s a piece of comedy. again: your sense of humor is lacking.

    • Skankingmike says:

      @steveliv: Your life must be extremely unenriching if you have to pick apart a comedy bit.

      • steveliv says:

        @Skankingmike: i’ve done no such thing. i’m not concerned with this skit, but the tv program it is a part of. i just think it is ironic for rich celebrities to talk or give advice about money issues.

        • nakedscience says:

          @steveliv: …why is it “ironic”? just because someone is rich doesn’t mean they don’t save or make wise financial decisions, or that they didn’t work hard (by saving and making financial decisions) to get where they are.

          • pecan 3.14159265 says:

            @nakedscience: the thing I find most interesting is the double standard..if you make billions from being good at inventing how is it so different from making billions by being good at acting? Or making wise decisions about what films to be in? The owner of X company got there from the sweat of his back, why is a celebrity less deserving of the same respect if they also rose to prominence through hard work?

        • Customer_Service_Slave says:

          @steveliv:

          I took it as face value cuz I wouldn’t be surprised if the skit was forreal. The only things I remember seth green for was Cant Hardly Wait, a move he had a side appearance for 10 years ago, and being a voice on Family Guy.

          Maybe he’s done other things, but I don’t think hes as rich as you tihnk he is.

          • pecan 3.14159265 says:

            @Customer_Service_Slave: Well he’s been raking in a pretty good amount from Family Guy, and he’s co-creator, writer, producer, voice actor, and everything else for Robot Chicken. And he just inked a deal to do another show.

            So I’m pretty sure while he’s not Richard Branson own-an-island rich, he’s not hurting too much to pay the electric bill.

  12. nakedscience says:

    Seth Green is the voice of my generation. Gah, everything he does is gold. Robot Chicken = love.

    • Lincolnsbeard33 says:

      @nakedscience: I feel sorry for your generation.

    • Mike8813 says:

      @nakedscience: I’m 25, I hope we’re not in the same generation. I sat through an episode of Robot Chicken and it was pretty terrible.

      (Although there was a 5 second bit where a robot was dry humping a washing machine. For some reason I thought that was pretty damn funny.)

      • pecan 3.14159265 says:

        @Mike8813: I’m 25 too, and I find Robot Chicken to be absolutely hilarious comedy gold. Obviously we have different tastes in comedy.

      • nakedscience says:

        @Mike8813: Although: “I sat through one episode…”

        Yay, one whole episode! And if you found the dry humping a washing machine hilarious, then you should watch more, because seriously, that’s the kind of humor it is, along with some really well placed moments of satire, irony, and pop culture fun.

    • Sortafast says:

      @nakedscience: He’s only one of the voices of your generation. The voice that seems to be more prevalent in the above replies is that of the Comic Book Guy claiming “Worst everrrrrrrr.”

  13. Skankingmike says:

    I want a Professor Puggle face!

    That’s the best cribs ever

    I liked cribs when they went to that guy who played Stiflers house and it was like a little apartment he shares with a few other guys.

    You know that most of the homes in cribs are rentals right?

    Seth Green could live much higher. I knew him when I was a TV commercial producer and he was a working child actor — tried to cast him in a Hershey commercial, but they wouldn’t let me because he had funny front teeth (adorable, actually). He’s an example of somebody who’s earned money but doesn’t spend every dime. Plenty of child actors and working actors are up to their ears in debt.

    • pecan 3.14159265 says:

      @Amy Alkon: I never got the message that it was actually his house though.

      • nakedscience says:

        @pecan 3.14159265: But think about it: Do you ever see him trolling around with models on his arm, and fancy cars, and fancy champaigne? He isn’t fodder for the paps because he doesn’t live a glitzy life. I always got the impression that he was pretty normal. Sure, he probalby has a nice house and a nice car, but he never seemed ~flashy~ to me.

        I get the feeling he has a LOT of video game systems and a huge tv with tons of DVDs and a lot of CDs, though, because he reminds me a lot of my friends, and if they had money they’d be SWIMMING in entertainment. Especially video games.

        • pecan 3.14159265 says:

          @nakedscience: There are certain things that are almost universal. Video games, DVDs and consoles tend to be one of them when it comes to anyone who comes into a little money. He might not drive a Ferrari, but I bet he’s got nice things like a lot of non-wealthy people.

          Just because you don’t have a glitzy life doesn’t really mean you don’t have really nice things. I just don’t know if the house is his.

          • Five says:

            @pecan 3.14159265: And anyways, it’s not important whether or not he owns that house. He’s just a messenger – promoting fiscal responsibility as well as satirizing the excesses of “Cribs”, without coming across as stuffy.

      • mmmsoap says:

        @pecan 3.14159265: Really? I did. Given that he’s more of a cult icon than a big-name star, it seems entirely reasonable that he’d own (possibly outright) an actual house. Keep in mind that that area of CA is pretty darn expensive too.

        But I guess it could all be a stunt, too. What do I know?

        • pecan 3.14159265 says:

          @mmmsoap: It’s not owning A house, it’s owning THAT house. I never actually thought he owned that house, or any stuff inside it.

  15. Coles_Law says:

    1.25 baths? What constitutes a quarter of a bathroom?

  16. WEGGLES90 says:

    For some reason I mixed up Seth Green and Jamie Kennedy and was thinking “When did Jamie Kennedy get funny”.

    Good stuffs/

  17. David Derus says:

    If only the government of California could take Seth’s advice.

  18. Aox says:

    Ok, I want to know how he’s getting 38 M to the G with a Subaru Legacy. Was there a diesel model?

  19. redkamel says:

    it might not be his house. BUT it is possible.

    Then again, theres one thing attractive to that place that you cant buy with money; anonymity. No one will bug you, there wont be annoying rich people everywhere (if, for example, paparazzi, loud cars etc bother you) your neighbors might have less entitlement issues, and they might be good old regular people too. Maybe hes into that stuff, I am, and I would love some peace over LA madness any day.

    If I was Seth Green, it would be to come home from work, know the moneys in the bank so I never have to worry about being forced to/out of work or “getting back in the scene”, sitting and playing PS3 and having no one bother you.

    What is also really funny is that the house is really nice inside if you ignore the furniture and just look at the walls and kitchen.
