Wait for Me
#2

Wow, that’s some impressive video editing.


#3

Next video edit: Inebriated, 400-pound Van Damme snorting crack off a hooker.


#4

Actually, yes, this is everything I’ve been waiting for.


#5

It so happens this was actually the version I saw first and… I don’t get it. I mean, I guess it’s technically impressive for a face swap, but so what?


#6

Try thinking of it like a banana


#7

They could have at least added some heft to the body as well. Once the camera zooms out so the shoulders are visible the impressiveness kinda breaks down.


#8

Now add in running over a council member and it’ll be perfect!


#9

That sounds more like a Cyriak version…


#10

Truly a mindset to master the most epic of splits.


#11

I’m still stuck back at wondering how Volvo couldn’t manage to get two identical trailers for such an epic stunt.


#12

enya’s music is readily available, and there might be enough recordings of ford’s voice to assemble an alternative narration


#13

I want to see on this one and Mark Cuban, where the trucks make sharp outbound turns and come back at 'im.


#14

If they were identical, people would claim that “It’s all done with mirrors”.


#15

They couldn’t have steered a reversing truck with a trailer that accurately, but reversing one articulated truck in a straight line was impressive enough in itself.


#16

Jorpho, do you comment every time you don’t get something?


#17

How incisively personal! No, sir, I have reviewed my recent posting history and do not see any particular trend deserving of being singled out.

In this case I am genuinely bemused as to how an infamously loutish mayor may be conflated with an aging action star’s stunt for a car company. The connection escapes me.


#18

I’m with you. I was expecting at least some voice-mashup going on, maybe Ford falling. Instead we got the exact same add with Fords face super-imposed. I don’t get the joke.


#19

Agreed. You’re not the only one who is confused at why this is…amusing? Impressive? I don’t even know what I’m supposed to be feeling.


#20

I apologize for the snarkiness of my comment. My reaction is coming from the fact that I saw this as a rather well done bit of absurdist humor, which one either appreciates or doesn’t. So I didn’t quite see the purpose of pointing out that one doesn’t “get it.” Of course there was little point to me responding to that as well, so… snark withdrawn.
