Today saw the release of our first LFTI Extras video. (It's also on YouTube and iTunes.) I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. Yes, we made it. We shot the material surrounding the extras, to give them a vehicle in which to shine. Like pineapple tidbits in aspic.
NOTE: If you came here from the contest banner or another link, you may first want to read about how this post is now a contest. Wild, eh?

Oh, but do not you fret, you fretless wonder, you! We are well on the way to fresh, new content! Fun and exciting content! Content that we can't wait to show you! In fact, we spent 25 hours this weekend shooting the next exciting installment of LFTI. With the set reaching 1,091°, it was an often grueling shoot. But everyone persevered, and we have some unique and funny stuff. At least we think we do. I suppose you'll all be the judge of that.
In keeping with our recent infuriatingly frustrating penchant for secrecy, I will talk no more of what we shot this weekend except to give you the following phrases. Some of these are somehow connected to our upcoming "episode," and some of them are not. Can you guess which is which?
1. Bone with a bow.
2. Red vines.
3. Chicken wattle.
4. Japanese Noh mask.
5. Cup of hot ketchup.
6. Thigh-high chukka boots.
7. "Guv'nuh. Guv'neh?"
8. Dick Cavett.
9. The Wizards of Waverly Cracker.
10. Forty-three blue-and-white four-color pens.
11. Phrenology chart.
12. Skee-Ball Certificate of Achievement.
13. Romantic mood lighting.
14. Gavin MacLeod.
15. Minor e-mail miscommunication.
16. "Two two two mints in one!"
17. Missing unicycle license.
18. Maury Povich.
There. Now, if we've done our job thus far with LFTI, you won't be able to tell which of these are in the upcoming "episode" and which are not. Feel free to post your guesses in the comments. Whoever gets the most answers correct before the next videos air will win a special prize! We have no idea what that special prize might be, so I won't tell you what it is. Isn't that infuriatingly frustrating?
Go! Guess! Then enjoy those pins and needles you'll be sitting on for the next few weeks.
UPDATE: Yes, friends, we've decided to make this a real contest. The prize? Getting your name in the credits of our upcoming "episode"! Really, in the scheme of things, it would be impossible for this to be any cooler... if you take cash, trips, cars, jewelry, or any other material good off the table.
So I've added numbers to each of the above items in the list. All you have to do is post a comment below and give us the number and if it's TRUE (it's in the upcoming "episode") or FALSE (it's nowhere to be found in the upcoming "episode.")
