It does kinda tie in with the famous logging commercial though.......

Yeah, can't say I'm a fan! I don't understand why you would just trash everything you get just because you can. Where's the God given pride in this kids sense of accomplishment. If my Dad saw me throw a chainsaw on the ground or pointlessly distort something, he'd come whoop my butt. Even now and I retire in the years, gots a wife and 4 kids.

Guess what, I'd deserve it too.

Could not get through half the video. It is ridiculous and just shows how the person(s) represents a spoiled irresponsible youth. Those making the video obviously lacks respect.

Don't blame you, it didn't end well. I said some bad words under my breath... >:(

I couldn't finish it either, when I watched it.

It's a shame, really.  I've been playing with old trucks for about the last decade.  And, when I think about all the time and effort I've put into mine, the money I've paid other folks for their time and effort, and the good folks I've spoken to who are working hard to find their own dream classic, the vid about spiked my blood pressure by 40 points.



*I also couldn't help but think about my Parents and Grandparents, who worked like dogs, and trudged and struggled, for everything they owned.
I spent most of my money on Jack Daniel's, Copenhagen, pocket knives, and 4X4 trucks.  The rest I just wasted.

His end goal is youtube hits. You helped him get them. He wins

On a side note, this a classic example of a douche

I'm a full-time caregiver for my Mom, who is in the final throws of Alzheimer's.  As a reward to myself, at the end of some VERY FRUSTRATING days, I'll spiral down the YouTube rabbit-hole many nights.  From guns to knives to politics to "Mr Bubz" to gals doing yoga (and other things), I'll spend a coupla' hours (some nights) watching vids.

While this guy may've won the battle (because of his number of views from SGG's post), he has lost the war on my end.  Now, because I know he's a "douche" (to use VZ's term), his videos are dead to me.  If I see him in my feed, I'll automatically assume his vids are trash, and ignore 'em.

I have to presume that many viewers, whether Members here or not, will feel the same.

Ok, i did not think of this factor-----increasing a view count (which is usually the goal of most 'Tube posters).


So, i should not recommend bad videos in the future?   i just thought because this was square related.   Plus you do have to admit it DID carry quite a bit of weight.

I quite enjoyed watching the idiot-fool bust his hand on the window. 

RIP, beloved square body.  A moment of silence...
