If you think YOU'RE having a bad day

...take a look (if you haven't seen it already) at this classic clip of the angriest man in the universe trying to film a commercial for the "Mini Winnie" Winnebago vehicle. (here's a screen cap and the link--I don't know how to embed videos)

I first saw the entire video (not just the hilarious strings of cussing but more of his actual lines mixed in with his flubs and colorful language) way back in 2000 or so, and it was always one of my favorite things. For some reason, I thought of it today and I found this edited version on the yootoobs.
So whenever you're having a bad day, one of those days when you feel like you can't do anything right -- just watch this guy, Jack Rebney, and remember that at least you're not him.
P.S. I myself am having a bad day. Long story, but I suppose at least it's not work-related.

To embed, copy (CTRL+C)the "embed" information from the video or source. In Blogger, switch from "Compose" mode to "Edit HTML" mode (tabs at the upper right of the composition window), then paste(CTRL+V)the embed infromation where you want it. That doesn't quite exhaust my knowledge of html, but that's about half of it. Also, not all video clips have nice neat embed info available for them. Can't help with those.

Take heart, at least you're not trying to sell Winnebagos, are you?

That was me. My sprog, alias Joshua, had logged in on my computer.

Lockwood--when I tried to copy that stuff in the "embed" field, I only got the first few characters; it's like I couldn't select the whole html string or something. So I just gave up. Thanks for the info! Oh, and welcome to the bloggy!

Joshua/SorCrow--A-ha! You had me fooled!

When you right click on the embedding information, choose "Select All" and then "Copy", then you'll get the whole string.

That was hilarious! The poor bugger!

Now I feel bad that I stopped by to sell you a Winnebago.

This guy is exactly my last boss. We always figured he had some kind of brain tumour or the beginnings of Alzheimer's or something
