Sons of Anarchy meets The Office

Dailies -

clandestine

A new web series out of Belfast aims to provide a more realistic, more comedic take on the biker gang theme. The Clandestine tells the story of a couple of IT nerds and “one smoking hot chick” who set out to form their own outlaw motorcycle club. “We can take whatever we want, from whoever we want, whenever we want it,” catchlines the show’s protagonist, who then rides off into the rainy Irish evening in a bright orange leather suit. Here’s the first episode.

Provided you were able to understand the remarkably thick accents, you could probably tell that the show is a rather clever send up of modern biker culture. With themes like Pirates and Power Rangers and the impenetrable language of motorcycle specs, combined with the fonts, it’s easy to get the feeling that the show’s creators read HFL. That’s no bad thing, this is funny.

The Clandestine is currently raising funding on Kickstarter for more episodes.

  • Your_Mom

    It’s dreadful. Love the attempt but they have a way to go.

    I like it! Its quite funny :)

    Plus, I have the same gloves as the harley guy :O (Red alpinestars with CF knuckles)

    Dumbassed ! But funny ! Which …. I assume is the whole point .

    Pretty much sums up the Phony ‘ 1% Yuppie Wanna be biker scene in a nutshell .

    The weasel in the office . Tell me we all haven’t at least one like him in our past or present .

    Love the Rice Burner squid and his Online Outlaw bike idea as well . 21st Century youth at its finest ( funniest)

    True British Isles ( even if it is Irish ) sarcasm at its finest

    They should get this on FX as a real series . I’d be laughing for the entire hour if they did , assuming they could keep the storyline moving .

    Someone had to post it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch-BF2QXAQU&feature=related

    The Clandestine was neat. I like how it made Wes write all British-y in the second paragraph. :p

    I feel like their culture has a much better grasp of “motorbikes” than we do here and so I think they’d produce better shows about them.

    Wish they were going for full TV length episodes though.

    Also unsubtle Animal Farm references are always nice.

    Funny.
    Are ‘we’ an online motorcycle gang?
    Seems virtually true, the ring of truthiness.

    Excellent use of Iron Maiden in the beginning.

      ‘Tis Judas Priest. Sure kinda sounds like Maiden, though.

        Really? I’m so ashamed of myself right now!

  • Devin

    Man! Is this five minute vid the only thing there is to this?

  • will

    Sons of Anarchy and the Office are 2 tv shows i have never really liked. So I am surprised how much I like Clandestine. or maybe that is why i like it.

    Heh, that has potential. Not laugh out loud funny for me, but some clever references and almost ‘in jokes’ (powerrangers) could make it really good. I’mma check out their Kickstarter page now…

  • Joseph Campo

    I’m The Clandestine’s producer and just wanted to thank you all for the positive feedback.

    We’re raising funds for the show at the moment. Its tough to please everyone in one episode but you can expect more action, beautiful women, and rock and roll in future episodes. If you like it, please spread the word about pledging donations to on Kickstarter.

      • JK

        Best line ever!

  • http://themotolady.com MotoLady

    This is more like the IT Crowd and Sons of Anarchy put together. Still dig it though! :D

  • CW

    The last line is the crux of human existence: “It’s coming to me,,,”. It’s the punchline that never comes.
