Meh. I'd be more impressed if he'd pulled out a laser harp... ;)
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

Yeah and his product videos aren't even the good kind, they are kind of like the, "get me pumped up like a 12 year old kid, and then show me your killer chops so I want to buy" kind. When I am watching a product demo, I want to see the product, how it works, its potential, and not some guy shredding crazy s**t with ridiculous presets.

I thought the ones he did for Moog showing how you could interface Foogers to the Little Phatty were good.

But the real kings of demo video cheeze-whiz are Bert Smorenburg and Torley.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
