Adam explains how they put the advertisement together very quickly and how the upcoming final airing of the film will be this month, Drew is confused, he doesn’t get they have multiple blocks of time.
Adam is indignant that Drew doesn’t get they had multiple blocks, he doesn’t get how Drew could not understand that part.
Adam had Matt check the amazon rankings for sales before and after the airing on Velocity, Adam, says nobody cares and thinks of this stuff in advance.
Adam talks about the spot, he’s now explaining it for Drew after explaining why he told Matt to follow the stats after the airing and before and explains how there is never a perfect unit or yardstick for measuring these things.
Adam is comparing it to broken sticks and finding water wells, he says it went from #25 to #1 in documentaries.

Do nothing and be a pussy like Dr. Drew – Adam
Adam yells them into the next topic.
Matt is now reading Adam’s email to FilmBuff and their replies, Drew and Adam are addressing their comments and Drew is over objecting and only adding fuel to the fire, this is great!

Drew is mocking the “thousands behind” and Adam says they ship like 100-125 per day, Matt is finishing up the reply from the company.
Adam is now rephrasing what they’re saying and he jokes about Galpin Ford and their advertising campaigns.
Drew is just ball stomping now and Adam is stepping in and adding some “buts” to mock the reply with a funny “cupcake sales” analogy.
Drew says this is an insulting response and Adam is trying to tamp down Drew’s reaction and explain why he’s insulted by it.
Matt is now reading Adam’s follow up with his demands for the facts about the “thousands of discs that were shipped” reply (Lie?) and now Matt is reading their next reply.

2nd Caller Scott, he’s calling about divorce and child support.
Drew talks about the documentary he worked on and Adam jokes with Gary about the 10 copies of The Hammer in stock on Amazon.
Scott has his own adage about mortgage costs going to child support, Adam asks how much of email has enabled people to bullshit other people, Adam asks if he was in the room with the idiot at the company in the same room asking him, how long would this BS float for, hmmm?
Drew says for the first time in their relationship Drew is allowing his anger, Drew says trying to amplify it and Adam says he’s too broken to care enough and get any angrier about it.
