Stick figure warning guy. Catch him giving an oscar worthy performance in this brilliant "truck tailgate with boxes falling" sequence. Plus a bonus: read the stick figure's comments on each shoot! I always wanted to meet the megastar who protects corporate America from law suits.

Warning labels, the volume knobs on small infants, Death By Vending Machine.It's an ever-shifting line in the sand of human stupidity, a vague cultural boundary defining how much we expect our products and corporations to protect us from ourselves and how much we're willing to be answerable for our actions, a line dividing how logic-impaired we're willing to admit we sometimes are and how responsible a given corporation should be for dumping shoddy and/or dangerous products on the market without warning. Is excessive labeling a release from liability? Is it killing off common sense or the need to have common sense?
