Straight Jackets and Video Cameras

On the off chance that anyone here is interested, I thought it would be fun to produce a small parody of the "I'm a PC/I'm a Mac" ads. Basically, it would be a series of video shorts along the lines of "I'm Java/I'm Perl", "I'm Ruby/I'm Perl", etc. All in good fun, of course :)
I don't think my Web cam provides *quite* the video quality I'm looking for :) I can do the the script writing (example: http://vimeo.com/1424008) and the video editing (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3-ZUagzrjw), but if others want to chip in, that would be awesome.
Would anyone be interested in working with me on this project, or perhaps make it a "Sponsored by London.pm" thing? I already have ideas for small sample scripts for a number of languages (one has a Java programmer in a straight jacket bragging about how he's never poked himself in the eye). Volunteer actors would be welcome, too.
