How to Ruin A Video


[YouTube direct link] (Viewer #617,666)

Have a guy do an interesting and intricate act involving speed, skill, and dexterity, and then every time he does something cool, splice in footage of some slack-jawed judge, hostess, or audience member gawking at him.

Otherwise no one will know how impressed they should be by what they're seeing.

Wow... and I thought fake laugh tracks were annoying.

  1. So many things wrong. . . my Uncle would have fired me if I had tried spliced a video together like that and tried to pass it off as a finished product.

    Also, I'm not too fond of the title of the video. As far as I'm concerned, to be the best bartender, all you need to do is be able to serve drinks quickly. If I ordered a drink and the 'tender started doing this, I'd get annoyed and find a different bar.

    However, the things he's doing are damned impressive, and as I don't want a drink from him, I'd happy to watch it.

    More ad revenue.. <.<
