This is also the video that disproves the theory that the LG15 series was taped consecutively within the space of a few days:
a) Daniel holds up recent issue of Rolling Stone b) LG15 makes direct reference to two youtubers (etoilefrancaise and stevexcraig) and their suggestions for peace offerings posted to the comments for her peace offering video.
but she definitely references two youtubers who made suggestions for what she should make for daniel for the peace offering:
etoilefrancaise (2 weeks ago) You should make crepes. The recipe is super simple, and if you have a crepe maker, they're practically impossible to mess up, plus, you can fill them with a whole bunch of different things. Most importantly, though, they're delicious!
stevexcraig (2 weeks ago) Bake him some chocolate chip cookies (use the Nestle Tollhouse recipe on back of chips) and give hime a BIG KISS. Tell HBO thanks for fixing the audio, but the lighting still sucks.
There is the whole debate about that issue of RS being superimposed, though...
I've looked at it closely for a good while and I think it's not superimposed. The main evidence that got me was that at some point later in the video, you catch a glimpse of the cover and it still looks like it's the same one. This, despite an angle that would make photoshopping incredibly difficult if not impossible.
I used to think its superimposed, but Kim confirmed that db is looking at pages in the magazine (and detailed which articles he was reading) so that means they had to have it. No idea why it looked so weird though, did they do that on purpose?
There could be a simple expiation for the color shift. Most web cams and lower end cameras in general do a white balance automactily when you start them. Bree could have been moving the camera around when this happened and it white balance off her purple shirt. If you look at the puppet it to has an odd color much more saturated than you normally see him. I have had this happen to me when I forget to white balance going from an indoor shot to an outdoors shot.

Here's the thing, if they faked it by putting in the RS issue later, why wouldn't they make it look exactly like that issue? This doesn't seem like a mistake someone sophisticated enough to do Photoshopping magic would make. I mean, wouldn't they start with an actual scan of the actual cover? If it's Photoshopped in, there's no reason that it should look different than the real one.
Oh, unless they're TRYING to drive us crazy.
"Wheels within wheels, my friend. Wheels within wheels."
Yeah, Mettle. That shot in particular makes me think it probably is current. Also, Daniel's hair looks somewhat longer to me. I think they just did that for the fans, to say, "Yes, we are still shooting." Which I believe they are.

of course, etoilefrancaise and stevexcraig could have submitted scripted suggestions for recipes.... and, if this is a major corporate scheme, they could have received an advanced copy of the cover from Rolling Stone for the vid. The former being far more likely than the latter, though neither is an explaination I would necessarily buy. I just enjoy the position of devils advocate- it helps me to keep thinking outside the box.
