VIDEO: Julie & Brandy In Your Box Office Episode One – “Avatar”

We are super excitant to present the world premiere of the Autio/Video Original Webseries starring famous celesbian comedian of life and star of Logo’s The Big Gay Sketch Show Julie Goldman and phenomenally good-looking actress Brandy Howard, “Julie & Brandy in Your Box Office”! Remember the preview? Wasn’t that awesome? Well now the first episode is here, edited by ME, Riese (Marie Bernard), with help from Autio/Video assistant visionary Kelsey Lisette.

This week, Julie Goldman & Brandy Howard go to see James Cameron’s Avatar. They share all their feelings about it, and then they re-enact the film for you! Their three-minute “Gayvatar” is way better than the real thing! You will probs ROFL 10-27 times.

Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard are the Matt and Ben of Lesbian Movies.  They are a sensational acting/writing duo that are trying to cause a sensation with their sensational, lesbian romantic-comedy, Nicest Thing.

Since no one wants to make their movie or cast them in anything, they feel it is their duty to harshly judge everyone else’s work; based on a sliding scale of rage, bitterness, lesbianisim, and lack of any real significant training.

We see crappy movies so you don’t have to.


You can keep up with Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard’s antics on Julie Goldman’s blog, Julie Goldman is really pretty as well as on Julie & Brandy’s blog It’s Not Gay it’s Fashion and the website for Nicest Thing.

The next episode of In Your Box Office will drop next week, which is very special. From then on out you can expect more LOLs every two weeks!

  2. As funny as this was i hoped for real dissection of the film, but then you can´t have everything.

    But i liked the film, largely because i was well aware of what kinda movies Cameron makes and he´s good at making those kind of simple, audience friendly(idiot proof) action drama pieces.

  3. I think people either love or hate Avatar depending on their expectations for the film. I liked Avatar enough primarily because the only thing I knew about the movie beforehand was from the trailer. I really didn’t have any expectations. I mean, sure, I’ve seen far better movies that Avatar but I’ve also seen far worse ones too. So I’m not jumping on either bandwagon. Sadly though, it might win the Oscar for Best Picture. That said, everything in the video is so true in addition to being hilarious – I had to momentarily pause it when “Hava Nagila” burst out of nowhere.

  4. 1) i love the theme song. Best usage of vocoder ever.
    2) i’m pretty sure Brandy came into my work in Los Feliz once and i developed a mild (see: gargantuan) crush on her. At least my gaydar was on. Too bad im a proverbial pussy.

  5. this is so funny. nothing could have prepared me for how funny this is.

    i have so many favourite parts, but “i take off my glove” was my most favourite part in the preview and my most favourite part in the whole thing. because wow, so funny.

    i am going to watch this again now.


  6. Ok, I’m gonna count my rofls. One down and I just finished the theme song alone! “in… your… BOX OFFICE! (another-word-for-vagina! huugh!” HA!
    #2. Julie is singing “avataaar.”
    #3. “it’s me, julie, and brandy!”

    Pause, omg she’s so right about the $500 mill. I mean I saw this movie as something finally calling the truth to light; through (science) fiction. But with that money they could have helped people already in danger. So what’s better? A message millions of people have seen (and probably haven’t processed enough to put into action) or a the deed itself (which probably no one would have known about)? That’s a real thinker.

    #4. “How DARE you, sir? How DARE you?!”
    #5. “WE’RE MAD ABOUT 9/11! BLUE PEOPLE!”
    #6. “My brother’s dead! I don’t know what I’m gon do! My legs don’t work!”
    #7. “Make me a part of the ewjsgfdszfdsffd tribe!”
    #8. “Then I’m gon put my tail in it!” *weird face*
    #9. “We’re chosen. It’s like we’re jews.”
    #10. “I like these blue people. They’re nice. The ladies. All the junk’s out. My junk’s out flappin’ around.”
    #11. “Everybody! Everyboddaaaayy!”
    #12. (THE BIGGES ROFL OF THEM ALL) The whole entire song Julie sings at the end. Genius.

    See, 12. You were right.

  7. Is there any chance there could be alternative versions of these videos with subtitles for those who are hard of hearing? They are extremely awesome and a transcription of them would only add to their awesomeness. xx

  8. This cracked my shit up. I thought Avatar was ridiculous, and it totally robbed “Coraline” of best 3D film. I didn’t make a lot of those modern day Afghanistan connections to the film though. Mine all went back to the Trail of Tears, and I kept wondering why Cameron insisted on ending the movie on an upbeat note.

    My favorite part of this was when they were talking about how it would be an honor to translate, because yeah, that part of the movie was too funny.
