During the TTD scene, if you look closely at the back ground you will see that the park was empty and the other trains were on the transfer tracks. So they filmed the part where he was riding it when the park was closed.

 

Actually no that is not true, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gerw55hois0. This guy filmed both shots of bert. One was a roll back the other a near stall. So the park wasn't closed.

Didn't someone in this thread say that they filmed the Fearsome Foursome challenge over like 3 or 4 days?

 

I wouldn't be suprized, I got on a film shoot for the show that they did at SFDK on hammer head, it took about 4 and half hours just to film that segment!

Actually, there is this one scene in Cedar Point where the camera looks up Top Thrill Dragster with some "hard" music. I seen this scene on Extreme Terror Rides when they were talking about Cedar Point.

You have to remember that they went through the coasters in Fearsome Foursome very quickly rather than taking time talking about each coaster. Maxair and Skyhawk probably were filmed the previous day.

Did anybody hear Bert on Joe Rogan's podcast? The guy has had a crazy life!

 

From wikipedia:

 

Bert Kreischer (AKA "The Machine") is an American stand-up comedian, actor and reality television host. In 1997, he was featured in Rolling Stone magazine as the "top partier" at Florida State University, the "top party school in the US", while he was in his sixth year of college.[1] From 2000 to 2001, he was the co-host of the FX Network variety show, The X Show. A segment that aired on the show, Ass Wax, where Bert had his hair removed with hot wax, led Bert to gain his own show on the FX Network, titled Hurt Bert, in 2004.[2] In the same year, he had a role in an episode of the police drama The Shield.

 

When Bert was 22 years old he ran with the Russian mob. He talked about these exploits on April 5th 2011, on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast #95 and Opie and Anthony on June 28, 2011.

 

On January 19, 2011, Bert appeared as a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience and revealed that the story of National Lampoon's Van Wilder was loosely based on his own life. After the Rolling Stone article was written about Bert's "party" lifestyle, he had gotten the attention of Oliver Stone, who had wished to develop a film based on his life. Upon receiving numerous script submissions, the deal had apparently fallen apart and all the writers had retained the intellectual rights to their work. One of these writers had supposedly changed Bert's name on his/her script and sold it to National Lampoon which eventually became the basis for Van Wilder.

It was on Wikipedia! It must be true!

 

And it was mentioned by Bert on Opie and Anthony, as well as on Rogan's podcast, plus the Rolling Stone article is real.

 

Just because it's on wikipedia doesn't mean it's not true!
