Now, now; let's not sully the value of gear by actually using it.

I'm more inclined to think it was a typo and meant booger.

This exactly had to be my video, some 7 years ago. And what i find amazing coincidence was the fact that it was supposed to be with an OB-8! And i kid you not.

A guy casually walks down the street, deep voice is narrating "walk down the street, look to the left, look to the right, spot a synthesizer" (as if it is a daily routine to find synthesizers on the streets!). Then it would cut the scene where i would spend next 5 minutes explaining how to pickup the synth, to sort of frustrate the viewers i would say "and now comes the most important part, here is how you pick a synthesizer, you stand here"... of course the point is to make it all look like real and make people really hate the lucky guy who found a synth on a street. The video would end with a guy happy waving to the camera, with the scene slowly zooming out, again for at least 2 more minutes with cheesy 60's music. Again to frustrate the viewer. I even found a perfect location. However, the cool pickup truck that we had in the firm is no longer here so it wouldn't have the same effect. Anyway the whole point of the video was to make the most difficult part seem like everyday routine i.e people are leaving expensive synthesizers on the street, while the most easiest part of lifting it up would be shown as something super complicated and i would spend most time explaining it. It was supposed to be a troll video.

I was going to ask for the youtube link, but then realised it has not been produced (yet?)

By the way, did you sell your yellow Lambo? To finance a Ursa Major?

I would subscribe to that! I would also humbly suggest some obscure trivia about the synth that is completely wrong.

Bob Lazar left a secret envelope in The Black Mailbox near Medlin Ranch in Area 51. Due to strong winds, it somehow slipped out. Inside it contains the truth about EVERYTHING!! I will need Lon / Lat coordinates with 4 decimal points. Should be an easy task.

I'm a bit obsessed with the Yamaha GX-1 lately.

A good comedy vid would be finding one of those on a roadside verge. Good luck trying to take it with you unassisted, or without a truck to put it in.

(Mind you I'd probably try and drag it with me)
