    Hmmm. I think I liked the other one better. Too much focus on text. Not enough focus on the toy itself.

    Arg, why does the TFCC host their stuff on youtube?
    That site's blocked here. Oh well, I watch it when I get home.

    It's easy, and they don't have to host the file themselves?
    That's a bummer. Do you have some other options for video hosting to suggest?

    I agree. The figure should sell itself. I liked the Nightbeat video but this one felt forced and not needed.

    Yeah, this video was pretty bad. Almost all text, and was in general just dumb. Not to mention the "sleazy strip club" music.

    The Nightbeat video, while not really matching the music, was much better at getting it's point across.

    And they zoom in for the crotch-shot. Wasn't expecting that.

    Yeah, the video was very confusing. I felt like I was watching a strip teaser and Airwolf at the same time. These mixed feelings are bothering me now.

    Yeah, I figure it's enough for me to say I preferred the other one, and to state why. I was rather annoyed last time that some folks got so uptight about the fact that (for example) the music wasn't timed to the video (actually, I guess that should be vice-versa). Such a thing would be nice, but I really don't think it's fair to expect music video quality from a group like FP. The fact that they're stretching they're legs and trying new things like this deserves credit on it's own.

    If I register for the club, I'm going to intentionally not do it until March 17th. That'll show 'em.

    yeah for some reason that music makes me think of that show "Rock of Love" with Brett Michaels. All he needs is his stripper pole!
