The Godfather of 5SF
Patton Oswalt is an amazing stand-up comedian. If you aren't familiar with him, check out his specials on Netflix. It's easy to see why the 5 Second Film team got excited about Patton's praise. And, the fact that he jumped on the opportunity to be in several videos is a testament to how great the 5SF team is at making their videos, and also how awesome Patton is as a person.
This isn't the only celebrity they've managed to pull into some of their videos. Andrew WK, Juliette Lewis, and Weird Al are some others who jumped on board, just to name a few.
In addition to being noticed by celebrity personalities, they were also noticed by mainstream media. The gang was featured on G4's Attack of the Show, Comedy Central's Tosh.0, Wired, Entertainment Weekly and several other shows and publications.
Don't be fooled, however. 5 Second Films is in no way an overnight success story and Michael will be the first one to tell you. It was a long and hard road, but their determination and commitment to the comedy kept it alive as they slowly climbed the ladder and got more and more attention.
