I think we've gotten to the point where we're making mostly funny videos, just like the slogan says.
Mostly. Mostly.
Like in "Alien"... "mostly".
I don't really do pop culture references. And I think I've only watched funny movies for the past decade.
You don't even TiVo or Netflix non funny things?
At this point, I'm so deep in the viral videos world I only watch movie previews or trailers. And only if they're doing something unique.
Our sweet-ass plasma HDTV is completely wasted on you. I'm going to sell it for some magic beans on eBay. And remind me to beat you with a stick tomorrow.

I would be more impressed if I could hear you play forwards and then compare to the backwards version.

Haha yes Gertrud is an idiot and this guy is a genius, and I want the score for the backwards piece.

Well played, but if you reverse the clip you can hear the song played backwards note by note so it sounds like its forward when its reversed if that makes sense. Yes, I have that kind of time.

I hope that you meant to write: the song is "für Elise". No french, there. And I agree, it was butchered, but it was not backwards. it was just interpreted really weirdly. I think the point was to have one person playing a known piece to proove that the video was not just play backwards, and have another do random things to show off that they could make a video go backward and foreward at the same time. Respect for the work put into that, but I like other videos better.

I just cannot believe the amount of incompetent people here. First of all, the only reason the guy in the background did all those random things was to prove that it was backwards... not really too much to entertain. Also, the music part WAS the main point. However, I don't believe completely because I'd have to hear/watch him play it normally. But it doesn't surprise me, however. See, composers could be really lazy at times and just took a previous piece and rearrange it backwards. Or certain parts, rather. I'd just like to know what song this is and see it played normally to buy it completely... then again, I guess I can do without. Good job, nonetheless.
