While watching that fun video, I thought about the “Breaking the fourth wall” concept.
As noted on the AnimC Pro Tips few month ago, you always want to avoid the character looking straight at the camera.
To me the most believable characters in that video are the ones that just, “live their life”.
The “hot grip” was okay as it was just the introduction to the skit but as soon as the “Crafty” looked at the camera, this took me away from my “voyeuristic” experience and I immediately became aware I was watching an actor performing for the camera rather than actual characters evolving in their natural habitat.
