“What is with his SPELLING?!?”

posted by on June 21 at 15:13 PM

Poor Steve is having a very bad day. Can you help him find Iaian?

It’s amazing how quickly one can go from preparing for a big meeting to getting tackled by security.

My new hero.

It would be funny if it was real, but they cut off the end where it was revealed to be a viral marketing ad.

It's still funny, Tiffany.

And he's still my hero.

LOLOL, made my day!
I often take a shortcut through the Westin - mcdonald's to monorail street - and how I wish Seattle was ready for more performance art like that.
Paulus, you rock.

Thanks, Dan. This totally makes up for the last video you posted...

Didn't get enough the first time, Lisa Ann?

Come on!

Dan, I'm sure you're a wonderful person, but I don't get the humor in someone imitating a complete and potentially dangerous drip and then watching everyone squirm in discomfort; it's psychotic Candid Camera.

But then, I've never been a fan of confrontational comedy. What's the end point? Running into a crowded mall with a Uzi screaming, "No one move or I'll shoot?"

Hear, hear, Bauhaus. If this was real, the guy's an asshole. If this was performance art, the guy's also an asshole.

IMO it would have been much more funny if he had just played the annoying asshole who talks on their BT ear piece instead of a dangerous laptop throwing asshole

Ah, the best ever was Trigger Happy TV. Their standard schtick was- This dude would walk into a crowded area, you'd hear the classic Motorola cell-phone ring (the instantly-recognizable one), then he'd whip out this GINORMOUS phone... like, it was three feet long. And he'd absolutely SHOUT into it: "HELLO! YES! HELLO! NO, I'M ON THE PHONE! AT THE PARK! HELLO? HELLO?"

Always cracked me up. Always.

Oh, man, I remember those bits. "YES? NO, NO, I'M IN AN ART GALLERY. NO, IT'S ALL CRAP."

The guy is a pretty good actor since he really captures the frustration one sometimes feels at hotels and the excuses of hotel staff. The lady is not as good of an actor.

Matt, wouldn't that be


It's a little over the top at places, but I'm pretty sure that guy was a partner in New York.

Is this guy for real? What kind of tacky hotel is that? Back in my hotel days, I'd have had his fat ass kicked out after his first glamour fit with the cell phone.

Blowhards like him are a dime a dozen, burnout - and the Westin probably sees more than their fair share of them. They know how to get rid of 'em before they regress to that level.

If I had a dime for every shithead like that who told me that they'd have me fired, I'd be a rich man.

Posted by catalina vel-duray | June 21, 2007 8:39 PM

That guy reminds me of Ecce Homo.

Nice tackle from the hotel security dude. That sent the lunatic

i guess. but it just don't look right. i'm gonna go throw some coffee pots now....

Ha! Good one Donovan - 17. I'd bet a Jackson that he can't sleep unless his hotel room bed is replaced with a cradle swing.

Posted by Lloyd Clydesdale | June 22, 2007 7:29 AM

Yeah, I don't find someone throwing a violent public tantrum all that funny either.
