Fred and Sharon Spencer are a delightful couple from Kelowna, Canada.

In January of this year, they invested in the domain name fredandsharonsmovies.com, uploaded a shedload of brilliant videos to their YouTube channel, and waited for the world to come knocking on their door, seeking the services of ‘Fred and Sharon’s Movie Productions’ (and/or ‘Fred Spencer Productions Unlimited’).

Sadly, nothing happened.

A month later, Fred Spencer uploaded what is quite possibly the most brilliant promotional video ever to be released on YouTube.

But again, nothing happened… until a few days ago, when people finally started to sit up and take notice in a BIG way.

Fred and Sharon are now one of the hottest tickets on Teh Internets, but – and here comes the really odd bit – they have suddenly decided that they no longer want to promote their services as filmmakers (and animators); the bulk of their site has been removed* and replaced with the message “temporarily offline”!

I can’t for the life of me work out why. Perhaps you’d care to take a look at their YouTube channel and the promotional video that made all the difference and enlighten me:
