I know that to the casual viewer, DadLabs looks like a well oiled machine, effortlessly delivering four episodes of polished edu-comic internet television every week, but behind the scenes in non-stop, spastic filming and editing, occasionally interrupted by convulsive uploading of video files. All in an effort to feed the insatiable, furnace-like needs of DadLabs Nation.
As a part of that ongoing effort, we received a classic message from Daddy Don, our jack-of-all-credits (producer/cameraman/editor/graphics designer), early this morning.
“Hey Guys — Prego Man Needs Sleep [airs this Wednesday] is now uploading. It may take a while. The wireless connection here at the hospital is really slow.”
His wife is in labor.
This message put us in a bit of a quandary here at the lab. Do we laud a dedicated employee? Or should we change the passwords on all the accounts to encourage fatherhood activities?
In other behind the scenes news, DadLabs finally gets featured on the YouTube (the Entertainment page, not the main page). That’s the good news. The bad news is that they featured a “Wikipoopia.” Now don’t get me wrong, I love the Wikipoopia. But I wouldn’t claim that’s what I want to be our flagship. Do we really want to be “Those Dirty Diaper Guys on YouTube”? I guess the bigger question is, could that monetize?
Finally, Brad thought it would be funny to bring his elderly dog, Percy, to guest star in Owen “Book Nook” segment reading “Good Dog Carl.” The dog is a 200 lb. geriatric Rottweiler. So far Percy has peed about a gallon and a half in the studio and suffered a minor stroke. Hilarious stuff.
Update: The dog bit Owen during the filming of the segment. Somebody alert YouTube.

We’re celebrating Thanksgiving here at DadLabs by presenting an (almost) entire week of shows all on the theme of our kids’ least favorite holiday. Today we’ve posted a Lab with some nifty Thanksgiving travel tips (don’t), and even a crafty thingy (Martha?). You’ll notice that we filmed on location, and even got permission from the authorities (though we still almost got arrested when I started running out into traffic because Troy told me to). So a big thanks-giving to the nice folks at the Austin Bergstrom Airport for letting us invade their well-secured turf.
