If you believe the hype, this is a surfer video edited by a monkey.

I love the three or four "subliminal messages" of a screaming chimp, like this one at 39s.

I'm sorry, I only watch avant-garde ape generated surfstep mixes.

Is this more or less interesting than a monkey video edited by a surfer? How about a monkey surfer edited by a video? A video editor surfed by a monkey?

Last one. Most interesting.

Apparently that chimpanzee finds surfing boring, and made it EXTREME with hyper-edits.

And brand me a skeptic, but I'd like to see the "making of" video, wherein said chimp is on the computer.

Give me a million two or three chimpanzees and I'll give you the next Warren Miller.

This is all I have to say about that.

What's interesting is that this isn't all that different from much of what passes for "editing" these days.

I keep watching these but I still can't see where Slenderman shows up.

This chimp obviously watches a lot of Tim & Eric.

What's up with the bird at 23 seconds in?

JT the chimp was given the controls of a Final Cut Pro edit system, and quickly mastered the editing process

This sentence is full of lies.

This sentence is full of lies.

Seriously, I took a year-long undergrad class in FCP and only about half of us had any sort of competency with it by the end.

I'm not sure if that speaks to the legitimacy of the chimp video, or the quality of the undergrads.

"Remote server or file not found" on your utterly context-less one-link post. There really is nothing to see here...

Here you go, sourpuss.

crunchland, thanks.

It seems plausible that this video was achieved by handing some sort of editing interface to a monkey - it looks a lot like random tapping on the timeline of a playing video.

Final Cut Pro: see, I have been telling y'all that even a chimp can master it - quickly!

That chimp has a bright future in electronica!

Well, that certainly explains the oeuvre of Michael Bay...

Look, someone had to say it..

The bird was genius.

I had a cat on my lap when I started playing the video, and I accidentally left the volume all the way up. Now there's a cat trying to kill and eat my netbook.

after half a day of marinading, it's good fun. Especially the bird.

I'm an editor. Based on that video and the current trend in the industry i still have a couple of years before JT and his friends steal my job.
damn dirty apes...
