Distilled essence of YouTube.



Needs more Affliction shirts and shaved heads, but it looks like their sunglasses selection skill fundamentals are solid.

Be right back; I need to go burn the leg of my pants so people will think I’ve been in the $#!+.

"Was that angry enough, or should I yell again?"

Stay away from the face scar from a hot M-60 barrel. I'm told the cool factor wears off pretty quickly.

Oh my! Thanks for the chuckle.

Joel said...

Thanks, Tam. I've been a bit down today, and now my one exposed eye sheds tears of laughter. Which effectively blinds me. So...thanks, Tam.

Goober said...

I didn't hear him refer to the men in the video as "operators" even once, so it totally wasn't the coolest video ever, because they didn't have any operators in their video.

I also love how none of them practice from cover or concealment at all, because they have super force-shields or something, and they can shoot so fast and reload all tactical and shit so they don't need to worry about anyone shooting back. Cover is for rookies.

These guys are awesome.

Makes me wonder how long that stick was rehearsed and how long the sketch…err…chorography…umm…train wreck took to story board. But then the longer some joker stands around showing off the easier it is to hit them in the head with a rock.

Thank God for YouTube, where everyone can be their own Florence Foster Jenkins.

Goober, Sport Pilot...

Y'all... um... y'all get that it was a joke, right?

LCB said...

No operators moving when angry and reloading. Phhhttttttttt Never mind.

That was a good way to end the work day Tam. Not that I'd watch a video at work or anything...

Scott J said...

Indian name, Tam. Indian name :)

Sport Pilot said...

OK I'll laugh for just a moment...done laughing now...still think it's stupid enough that some bubba's gonna try it now though..

GuardDuck said...

I liked the traaannnsitions.

But it was lacking a bit in 'big boy rules' range antics. I give it a solid B+

Robin said...

"Bearded guy reloading while angry"

Hilarious.

GregT said...

Heh, at first I thought it was the dynamic pie guys, but this one's pretty funny also.

Goober said...

Tam;

Yes.

I'm dense, but not that dense.

Goober said...

"Indian name, Tam. Indian name :)"

No, just a misunderstanding of my attempt at snark/satire/sarcasm and thinking I was serious.

I wasn't.

I've read a lot of comments similar to mine that were meant in all seriousness, where some guy had watched n honest video where the people in it were being serious as a heart attack, but were obviously Cletii (Cletuses?) and then went on to critique their process while obviously missing out on the ludicrousness of the whole thing.

Goober said...

Also, I watched it assuming that the "actors" were being earnest and were taking what they were doing seriously, while the narrator was making fun of them .

Was that an incorrect assumption? Are the actors in on the joke, too?

Steve Skubinna said...

I didn't hear anyone yell "Get some!" so it could have been a little more tactical.

Rick Taylor needs to bring it up a notch. These guys are closing in on him.

Tam said...

"Are the actors in on the joke, too?"

Oh, yeah! The abbreviated-to-the-point-of-ritual "scans" and the spastic "Magpul twitch" that doesn't actually fling the mag out of the gun are among the clues that the whole thing's a put-up job. :)

I like it!

Now I'm think of a name for a new business; "All TACTICAL...and stuff". -- Lyle

chem said...

OAF!

Yes the guys on the video were in on the joke. Daniel Shaw (primary guy) is neither a cleeti nor a mall ninja.

Robin said...

Magpul twitch - I love it.

Mike Gallo said...

Not funny - I melted my brand new knee pads with my can this year. They cost like $50 godammit.

Kristophr said...

I still think they should have all yelled "Leroy Jenkins!"

staghounds said...

No "sandbox" or "Team" references, either.

staghounds said...

Particularly funny given that Glock's version is playing right alongside.

OldTexan said...

Not sure but I think flat-black tactical uni-cycles would give those warriors a tiny bit more ability to maneuver while yelling charge or something.

Tom the Impaler said...

Old Texan, you mean Segway's don't you?

Tam, wasn't "advancing at a slow walk, while firing from waist level" a technique first developed to break out of the trenches in WW-1? Making this a historical reenactment of past disasters?

Tam said...

"Marching Fire"? That was what the BAR and/or Pedersen Device were intended for.

Tom the Impaler said...

Ah! knew it was something like that, Thanks!

John Balog said...

So was this a recreation of a James Yeager or Gabe Suarez training class? hard to tell the difference sometimes...

Is there somewhere a big list of trainers/training companies that are either total jokes or downright unsafe? I know there are disputes and BS about even the best trainers, but some of these morons are actively scary. Either in the "Iwas a going to kill some folks then I heard the voices in my head telling me not to. Oh and would you like some training with rifles?" kind of a way, or the "photographer standing literally next to the target on a hot range" way.
