Papermate Bp Youtube Review (Satire)

If you haven't seen this, prepare to enjoy a brilliant send-up of every fountain pen review video on YouTube. Full of nice touches, such as using the back of a bank statement envelope instead of Rhodia or Tomoe River.

Can someone let me in on why this is funny? BTW I didn't find it offensive/rude in any way, just don't know what's going on.

I lost it at 'my butt'.

10 years on PFN! I feel old, but not as old as my pens.

I like it better without the voice-over--makes it more of an "inside joke."

He really needed to go on and on and on about every excruciating test he could Possibly do on the pen and then have some whiny voice ask for something even more specific (infra red photos of the pen, please, with a video to go with) then have the reviewer abashed he hadn't thought of that and promise to do them faithfully right after he buys the machinery and props for a proper dark room set-up.

Do we have any idea who did the video? Is s/he one of "us" or making fun of us?

Yeah, the "my butt" was good. But I thought the really funny part was just tossing the pen back in the drawer (sans cap, I noticed) at the end.

Hey, if I didn't know better (like the facts that we don't own video equipment or buy Papermate pens) I might have thought that it was my husband making that video.... :lol:

Ruth, it has to be one of us. You would have to be very familiar with FPs, paper, and ink, and would have to have watched dozens of video reviews, to do this so cleverly. I mean, this is devastatingly funny.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
