Deep in the mists of time (well, a couple of months ago as I pen these words), I posted a blog about some funny EDA videos from Cadence and Altium (Click Here to see that blog).
Someone added a comment to that blog saying that one of their favorite videos was the one about the Rockwell Retro Encabulator. Of course I immediately bounced over to take a look, and I totally agree – this one is absolutely brilliant!
The point is that I was chatting to some guys at Lattice Semiconductor today, and we wandered off into the topic of videos, and I rooted out the links to my blog and sent it to them … and then it struck me that unless you had observed the comment you wouldn’t have seen the Rockwell video, so I decided that I really must share it with you because it’s so amazingly funny (just listen to the words – this script must have been mega-hard to learn – and how does he keep a straight face?).
But wait, there’s more, because one of the guys at lattice pointed me at a video-animation titled I want my widgets now, which is a complete parody on customers with unrealistic expectations and the entire supply chain problem. This is something you really have to listen to carefully – the animation isn’t great, but the spiel is wonderful – and in fact the animation does work in a strange sort of way because the characters are so deadpan which really goes well with the script.
But we digress, here’s the original Rockwell Automation video:
Actually, if you like this Rockwell video, there’s also a Chrysler Dealership Training Video
in a very similar vein:
Come on, do I have to do all of the work here – if you know of any funny videos lurking on the Internet, please add a comment to this article or email me at max@CliveMaxfield.com and I’ll feature them in a future blog.
