A NEW ERA
In summer 2006, Mr Tapass felt he needed to return to the great people of America, as he had fans as well as family out there who were missing him, so the Great SKIT HEADS said an emotional farewell to each other, and once again were apart, but we made one promise to each other before we split for the last time, we decided we would expand SKIT HEADS into a Transatlantic operation, with Mr Tapass working on American skits while Mr Maris would continue SKIT HEADS back in London, so we both started work on SEASON 2.5, where we both continued working on our skits back in our own country's, this page is information on some of the videos we both worked on and produced, while apart, but still thinking as one.
tai chi with tapass
Tai Chi with tapass, where he demonstrates some of his awesome Martial art skills, or lack of! with some awesome wood breaking failed attempts, his almost 1 finger pushups and some sword skills.
A dude gets home from work, and decideds to reward himself with some Adult channel viewing, he flips between the channels, finds something that gets him interested, when the show gets interrupted by a geeky nerd who insults the viewer calling them overweigh, a beefcake and a loser! and convinces them that if they get off their ass and hit the gym, they will be as successful with the ladys as the geeky guy himself claims to be!
A Christmas Wish
For a Christmas special, Maris directed a skit known as A Christmas Wish, which starts off with a little boy playing with his toys, his mum comes in and tells him to go to bed as Father Christmas is coming, the little boy gets ready some treats for Santa, he leaves him a glass of out of date milk and a lemon pie then goes to sleep, the boy is not all there and asks Santa for some strange gifts, Santa appears looking more like an overweight alcoholic, is disgusted at the food left for him and shocked at what the boy has asked him for, but seeing as he has been a good boy, Santa leaves him a present and leaves, the excited boy awakes on Xmas morning and is overjoyed at recieving a 12 Guage shotgun! then his dirty mother opens her gift from Santa, an extra LARGE DILDO!!
Tapass did a short CKY Tribute as we have both been fans of CKY and Jackass, which has been our inspiration since we began.
JOIN ME IN DEATH
As a dedicated HIM Fan, Mr Tapass made a Fan tribute music video to a track titled Join me in Death, by HIM.
Mr Tapass Directed another Music video inspired by another HIM track named Razorblade kiss, where Tapass creates a dream like effect video where he wonders through his own memorys.
A Tapass USA Production, known as Skit Island, where we see a slow long shot of a beach, as Tapass explains about SKIT HEADS being on a plane that goes down and crashes on an island, and Maris and Tapass survive and try building a raft out of old SKIT HEADS Video cases, but it sank! and sank fast!
BBC short film
grime music video
Maris was lucky enough to land an audition once with a film company to star in an Grime music video, artist Wiley was having a video produced and required some Gothic people to dance in the background of his music video, Maris landed with another actor a serious part playing a vampire, the music video was a school group who visit a History museum and two of the kids get bored and wonder off, one of the kids hides in the toilets and falls asleep while listening to a Grime track on his Ipod when he awakes he has been locked in the museum at night and as he wonders through he hears a noise, he goes into an exhibit room and all the artifacts from the museum have come to life and are dancing! there's a knight in Armour statues and the Egyptian mummy is rapping, there was a vampire dancing, which was the role Maris was cast for, but there were two people up for the part, a young woman was also cast for the part of the vampire, and she was cut into the final video, sadly Maris was rejected, but he still spent 2 days in the BBC Television studios being filmed, so was a fantastic experience.
day britain stood still
A few years ago England suffered a really heavy snow fall, which brought the country to its knees, with all road and rail links brought to a standstill, but SKIT HEADS UK took full advantage and joined the crowds on a hill for a round of sledging, except in true SKIT HEADS Fashion, we used an inflatable armchair for comfort and luxury! all was going well until SKIT HEADS Director of Photography, Pug and her Little half sister Pookie, decided to brave the hill of Death, when half way down the inflatable chair twisted and summersalted over throwing its 2 riders off and onto their necks! almost killing them both instantly! both survived, to ride another day!
Maris decided to do a set of test shoots for a series of skits known as Twatrix, where Maris dresses in a trench coat and dives around indoors with an air pistol.
The Career Ender
When we say this skit is called Career Ender, it almost was! Maris was in central London shooting one day and had an idea for a cool camera shot, he thought that riding an underground train, it would make cool footage if he stuck his hand out the window on the doors between carriages and hold and support his camcorder on the roof of the train and film as it enters the tunnel, so he put his arm out with the camera resting on the top of the trains roof, and the train accelerated to over 30 MPH in five seconds and as the train entered the tunnel, Maris had over judged the clearance gap between the roof of the train and tunnel, which is around 3 inches, his camcorder was about 5 inches! so as the train hurtled through the tunnel, Maris's camcorder smashes into the brick arch of the tunnel, its snaps his wrist back almost ripping his hand off! luckily momentum pushed his arm down the space between the door and he didn't loose his hand, his hand was slightly damaged, and the camera had been smashed after receiving the full impact of an underground train traveling at speed into a brick tunnel wall! Lucky is not the word.
the tapass and mcfilthy show
Once back in America, Tapass joined with Mcfilty and every week they hosted a live internet show for a few hours, where there was live discussions, crazy videos and music vids were aired, music, and people would even call in live on Air! as part of the show, Maris and his London crew would hit the streets of London and give live reports from popular tourist spots for the show.
Londons Metal scene
SKIT HEADS London crew, with Help from Pug, their Director of Photography, first headed into Londons Camden town, the home of Metal and Goth,and Londons best selection of Chinese take away food, and did a live report from the streets lined with cool clothes shops and many tattoo studios.
london astoria music
SKIT HEADS did a live report outside one of Londons most famous music venues, just before it was demolished, which was so tragic, as great Bands had played there such as Bowling for soup, Stonesour and even Slipknot! the Council of London were building a new railway station and the venue was in their way, so has sadly long gone, with all its great Memorys.
Considering the last time SKIT HEADS attempted to do some video outside Londons Buckingham palace we nearly got shot and were stopped by 6 police offficers for Terrorism! Maris braved another try and did a live report outside the Queen of Englands home, he even waved to her during a snow storm.
As a Special edition for the Mr Tapass and McFilthy show, Maris and his crew paid a Great British seaside town a visit, he headed to Brighton, a famouse place known for its Homosexual club scene, its beach and its world famouse piers, where Maris tried some of the Greatest Fish and chips England has to offer!
