Excellent. :lol:

And, of course, the first comment you see is some credulous lemming asking if the rides are real. They should have called one the Hope & Change ride.

The video is brilliant, but that first comment made it even more effective.

And it wasn't even a good troll. I wonder what was the purpose of making this video.

Probably a demo reel to send to clients.

Anything that needs a professional looking video. Commercials, corporate promotions, documentaries....

Or do you disagree?

Or do you disagree?

Yes. It's a fairly impressive video as a presentation of what can be done, plus it fooled some people which is always good.

It's a lot better than those dopey MS adverts like this one. Sort of similar.

Your donkey notwithstanding, I guess you are harder to please than I am, but then again I am not an expert on video production.

If one has to be an expert at something to watch something then my donkey is withstanding.

Well, one doesn't. But to expertly criticise something one does. Since I am not, I cannot expertly criticise. You may be able to, I know not. Your donkey may be able to either standing, withstanding, or sitting nonchalantly in a corner. I wouldn't know that either, although I have my doubts your donkey is that sentient or indeed real.

The best thing I could suggest is get some equine morphine suppositories and stick them up your ass. Your donkey will thank you, if it can.

My donkey believes you made this video, which is making you sensitive to criticism. No, this is not an entertaining video. It is just bland, devoid of any irony, sarcasm or even wit. Just plain "I got a camera. Will make video." Maybe if you stopped kissing donkeys, you'd probably stop loving this video.

The purpose was humorous social commentary. It was mocking state funded scyentific research.

My favorite was the 14 hour tram ride that people fell asleep on and missed their stops.

My favorite was the "whip of death" toward the end (last one?).

My favorite was when he was saying, "The problem is how to stop the sphere spinning without the people up above smashing into its upper surface here. We are still working on this." (after you just saw a video of the thing in operation).
