i was expecting dick dale.
This used to be the kind of thing everyone in the world watched at the same time. Now it’s just the latest tragedy that draws us all to the tube. We don’t strive as a nation anymore.
Don’t know how I got this bummer feeling watching this cool video. Sorry, I’ll take a chill pill.
Thought this was the soundtrack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK6TXMsvgQg
Every time someone says “Benny Hill Theme”, Boots Randolph twitches in his grave.
Kinda like Rossini twitching over the “Lone Ranger Theme”.
Toy! Like a kid with a new go-kart in a muddy back lot.
I can’t access the mp3 link here at work (Jack Warner must find that domain naughty for some reason), but I figure it must sound exactly like this.
The Apollo landings were faked. Here’s proof: http://youtu.be/mouUUWpEec0
Also, Armstrong’s words upon landing were re-dubbed by NASA to be more publicly acceptable. Here’s what he really said: http://youtu.be/LAgjSHjlT9I
“http://www.sounddogs.com.nyud.net/sound-effects/25/mp3/267378_SOUNDDOGS__ti.mp3″ is a bad URL.
http://www.sounddogs.com/sound-effects/25/mp3/267378_SOUNDDOGS__ti.mp3 seems to the the correct URL.
Noone’s joined the audio and video together and reuploaded the video (with links to both sources), or is there a reason this hasn’t happened?
NO! just NO!!! Don’t believe it people. A bit funny perhaps, but not even REMOTELY true.
A) there’s not enough atmosphere on the moon for such sounds to be transmitted.
B) the lunar rovers were battery powered, so there would be NO engine sounds
C) the regolith on the moon is fine dust. the audio file is clearly gravel and/or dirt
It’s ensaddening to see all the “moon hoax” videos (with massive pageviews), when you click on the actual moon videos.
Wait, do we start it during the third lion roar, or after?
That was pretty good. A little foley like that would have helped the live coverage. I watched those as a child and watching guys poke at gray rocks for three days with nothing but “ Houston… 5 to LDKS, Now deploying FLANCOM…. ” as the audio required great devotion.
that long shot of the camera on the moving rover was something you never saw live. The camera required a staionary antenna to connect to earth.
I was going to be clever and mention Yakkety Sax. Drats!
@artao – Houston your humor systems seem to have gone offline…
Thanks to whoever did the image stabilization on those. The frame makes it look like it would have been ghastly viewing without it.
It’s an option when you upload to YouTube. (Under “Enhancements”.) It’s also an add-on filter in VirtualDub, and, I’m sure, in many other video editors. IIR the edges can be optionally trimmed, at least in VirtualDub.
Sounds like they left the brakes on…
“In the vacuum of space, no one can hear you drive.”
Was that Kubrick’s finger on the lens?
