"this little retard is the worst example of German people."

Oh, I can think of worse.

Seems to me that this either: A. a hoax in which somebody taped themselves acting like a spaz or B. an example of a very very disturbed human being that needs help.

Where, though, does the video come from? Was his cruel sister taping him sereptitiously?

It's pretty obviously fake, I think. And a bad fake with bad acting.

This is rather old and ubiquitous for the metafilter, is it not? Plus with the bad spelling and all, it's just a tad on the lame side.

He's acting. Nobody shrieks a narrative when they're angry. Not even Jerrys are that anal-retentive. And they certainly don't record it for your amusement.

Pathetic.

I thought I would have more to say, but... I don't. Just... pathetic.

If it's real, it's just plain sad. It's every bit as funny as watching an epileptic have a seizure.

If it's not real... it's a testament to the German capacity for lameness. Uberlame.

That reminds me of that guy in a cubicle that goes really mad over his computer: screams, kicks, slams, etc... Too lazy to dig the link up.

I saw the "original", prior to the translated subtitles... I'd have to say, they simply reek of a desperate grab for mileage off this poor performance. "Quick start, yeah, here we go!..." What?

Anyway, you don't log on to Unreal Tournament.

Y'know, when America's Funniest Home Videos premiered, it was great because it was comprised of VHS clips that had been sitting in closets and on bookshelves across middle America. And then, as the show gained popularity and the monetary prizes increased, people began to submit staged videos and the show began to suck.

That's what's happening to YouTube. Bus Uncle was funny because it was real. This sucks because it's not.

MeFi: Best (german) crap of the Web?

That's a good call, cribcage. I loved that show, despite Bob Saget's relentless, determined unfunniness, when it came out when I was in 5th grade. I see those shows now and think what terrible taste I had back then. But your explanation of the show's gradual descent into suck makes a lot of sense.

My 7th grade Social Studies teacher said his daughter did something funny on her bike once, so they tried to get her to do it again; the result was a trip to the hospital.

This guys has dialup and a 8086, this is clearly a commercial for an upgrade.

This wasn't funny the first time around. What next? Star Wars kid on YouTube? All Your Base Are Belong To Us on YouTube?

Not funny. Art.

Like 'Epileptic Seizure Comparison' by Paul Sharits. This, I imagine, is a study in Tourette's or a scathing commentary on online gaming/youth-culture.

I pity those of you who actually watched this video, and I thank you for taking the bullet for me. *sigh* What would the world be without suckers? ;^D

Eh, I vote not fake.

I like how he picks up the stray keycap and fumblingly puts it back. Like a guy roughing up his girlfriend and then, realizing he's caused actual damage, stops for a moment to lovingly straighten her hair.

Now,

Don't make me say it again!
posted by scheptech at 8:34 AM on August 2, 2006


i vote fake because when he gets to play what he wants to play, he doesn't calm down a bit ... it's all hysteria, even when he's shooting his enemies

that and his constant struggle to avoid a shit-eating grin

But, really, why was it taking do long for Unreal Tournament to load.

WHY?!?!

Except that little retard isn't actually German...

I can't find the link right now but, apparently, this is this kid's shtick. He has more videos of him freaking out in various places. If it wasn't so shitty I'd track them down.

Obligatory snark about single link youtube posts. Specific snark about the crappy quality and shelf life of this particular post.

Ah well, live and learn. I thought it was funny if a bit suspicious. Then again, I am retarded und ich sprech ein bischen Deutsch.

The use of "retard" as an insult has become far too common. It's wrong.

Hey, there's an amusing video with a kid swinging a pretend lighsabre around too... yes, this is a bit old. Still utterly terrifying though.

Here's what it would sound like if the kid sang for Dillenger Escape Plan.

it's fake. this and that is the inspiration apparently. but I think the copy is more hilarious than the original in this case.

"Anyway, you don't log on to Unreal Tournament."

Mmm, but if you're playing online multiplayer, and there are modified maps, skins and rules etc, there can be some time consuming downloads between games, even if you've just played on a particular server. If he has a grudge against a particular team or player, he might be slightly worked up. If he has a habit of getting worked up at the computer, is it beyond the realms of possibility that he was filmed by a sibling? Don't get me wrong - my first thought was "this is a fake", but there are some bastards about, and maybe this once they caught one on camera. It's not impossible.

In a similar vein (I think this has been posted before) - kid freaks out at his mother without realising his mic is on. It's the fact that the characters lip-sync that makes it great.

posted by darkripper at 3:15 AM on August 3, 2006


I didn't think this was fake until i saw it with translation.
his piece of shit keyboard looked disposable, and it was ridiculous how much he pounded on it while it still loaded.

at some point he seemed to crack up at his efforts.
I'm not saying that he was in control for the whole filming, but he definately went into that clip knowing he was going to lose is shit.

the thing which terrified me the most from this clip, and the alleged inspiration, is what the hell would anyone else in the house think, hearing it?

In a real fight, that kid's lack of skill would leave him bloodied, and lessoned. As it is, he doesn't even have the strength to kick hard enough to knock off the roll-on deoderant placed on top of it.

sadness.

Whoever made that mashup should get a medal of some kind!

Absolutely amazing.
