The True Marvels of Engineering (and Techno-Gibberish) [Video]

If you think you are up to date on your techno-gibberish, then get ready for a whole new level with this video. The narrator did this warm-up presentation on the first take and kept a straight face while doing it. Even better, play this for your friends and watch their eyes quickly glaze over…

From YouTube: Several years ago, Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty transmission business. We were getting ready to tape our first introduction video, as a warm up, the professional narrator began what has become a legend within the trucking industry. This man should have won an academy for his stellar performance. Now remember this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down, this became the biggest talk in the industry, vs our new product which we were introducing. I think you will enjoy this once in a lifetime performance from this gentleman.

    You have to hand it to him, that narrator guy was really smooth… The first time I saw this I thought that he would smile or start laughing at the end like everyone else was doing and he still kept a straight face! Bet he would be very good at card games…the ultimate poker face. ^_^
