ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
[Video Link] "Excuse me, give me some space to drive my ball.”
Taking shaky camerawork to a whole ‘nother level.
not only shaky, but I’m not all that interested to see the president talking (I can see that on the news)… I want to see the damn ball! It gets, what, a fraction of a second of shaky cam time?
I will never get that 75 seconds back.
Last week I went on a job interview at Girls Gone Wild, second interview actually. Joe Francis kept me waiting in the lobby for two hours before I walked out, the jerk. I want my two hours back!
Reminds me of those photos of the Kims of North Korea inspecting various factories, schools, etc.
Or that time the Queen visited a southern Ontario pickle factory.
I ain’t going to spread for no roses.
My new ringtone!
Action starts at 1:00.
Amazing his SS folks let him get so close to a shiny, rolly “what-the-heck-is-it?” kind of thing.
And then he ruined the whole thing for the Sphero folks by asking the guy if he was still in school.
Weaponized in 4.. 3.. 2.. 1..
Fox News reports: “And after the break, would you let Barack Obama play with YOUR balls? This man DID, and WE have the video to prove it!”
OK the president has one look at the ball in action and says, “How cool is that?” without sounding like he is trying to hard. I would vote for the man based on that alone. (which would be as a comparison to any other politician of my life time.)
Was hoping the ball would be levitating. But this was a start. Maybe by the end of the next term?
You’re absolutely right. The humanity and social skills of “one of the most powerful politicians in the world” amongst the “common people” is a complete waste! We should only elect people who do well in their gated communities amongst their own type. So irresponsible, BB, geeze! Maybe we’ll get lucky and replace this man with someone who can’t speak three sentences without insulting a segment of US society.
he’s a politician….that’s not actual humanity and social skills, just very convincing simulations!
I disagree. Imagine Mitt Romney in the same situation.
