hi reddit!

We're Damien Eckhardt-Jacobi and Vincent Bova.

We first started puppeteering on the NYC subways in 2004, but we quickly realized that Mario and Fafa begging New Yorkers for change was not the way to do things.

So we moved to the interwebs and started making videos.

Since the puppets are more interesting than we are, we'll answer your questions with videos from the Glove and Boots character of your choice. (Mario, Fafa, Gorilla, Thor, Santa, Jack Woods, Zombie, Stewart, etc.)

Please check out this video for proof that it's us, and to get started.

EDIT: Wow you guys are awesome! We are answering as many questions as possible and we aren't going anywhere! Stay tuned and we'll get them uploaded as fast as the tubes allow. Also, for easy access, we are posting all responses in this playlist with link-backs to the original questions. Thanks again, reddit!!

EDIT AGAIN: We just made videos for 14 hours and BOY ARE OUR ARMS TIRED! Thank you so much for making this AMA an amazing experience for us. Here is our final AMA video.

EDIT AGAIN AGAIN: Hey mods! Thanks so much for setting this up for us, and letting us to do things a little bit differently.

Is mario related to elmo?

damianlz76 karma

This one is actually to the makers, can I ask how big your team is and if you guys have a background in effects, digital work? i've noticed a lot of work progressing from the simple replacement back window to Fafa's amazing peewee herman dance. Did you guys do this kind of work before hand or did it all stem from the need in Glove and Boots?

bigjuan69 karma

Mario and Fafa...will you be doing more "Let's Play" videos? They were probably the funniest things I've seen in quite awhile, and it's always wonderful to see others doing the same things I did in the games of old (read: NES-era games)

apjak66 karma

Where are the women? There are no females on Blog! (Rarrghh). Why not? Is it because Mario is holding out for Katy Perry?

thesama63 karma

Dear Mr. Jack Woods,
Your sound and style are very similar to another individual I remember from my drive-time radio in Portland, OR in the 1990's.

I don't want to blow your cover (I'm guessing there's some sort of witness protection thing going on), but come on, it's was you right?

Radio_Flyer61 karma

Does Zombie feed on only human puppets, all puppets, or real humans?

Thor, as the sexiest god around, you have naturally wooed my girlfriend and I can not seem to get her back, how would you suggest I try and get her love back ?

andersmauritz44 karma

Are your videos unscripted? By the way, all of them are fantastic! By far some of my favorite videos to watch. Especially the new years eve fiasco!

Caerban34 karma

I'm a poor puppeteer scrabbling in the bins of the UK for food and living in an old box by the canal. Do Fafa and Mario have any tips for making a living with puppets?

Are there going to be any new characters coming soon to glove and boots?

PScan6922 karma

If you could witness any two people in history fighting with pool noodles, who would you pick?

I assume that Zombie is looking for work, since the series of videos featuring the undead seems to have ended. Has he found employment? If not, how are the interviews going?

Psionic10121 karma
