The Episode Format

The Upside Down Show

In all the runs of the show, either one or both the brothers are seen engaged in some sort of activity which more often than not, is typically unrealistic. The audience can make out that David is pretending to hold “The Remote” and reiterates the activities on the screen that can be remote controlled. A demonstration is given which is executed by him that regulates Shane’s actions. The ‘fast-forward, ‘pause’, and the ‘wild-card buttons’ like the ‘humongous’ and the ‘minute’ buttons. In time, David offers ‘The Remote’ to the audience so that they can control the actions themselves. The opening credits are screened when the audience presses the “Just Press Play” button with the Action Fingers poised on the title in a “Down Upside” position. Pointy, with help from Action Fingers revert it back to “Upside Down” position and then ride on the credits to get to a door that opens to usher David Collins and Shane Dundas, and expresses that this show was conceptualized by the screen brothers and Belinda Ward.
