I thoroughly enjoy being one uped or in this case two uped by Max, even though the Rockwell video is one of those oldies but goodies. When I watched the first video, I chuckled, then the second made me laugh so hard that the cold I’ve been trying to get over, came rushing back with coughing spasms. Not to worry, it was well worth it.

405 the movie is one of my all time favorites. For some reason, I couldn't get it to play tonight, but I've see it before. I also thing that the "Air New Zealand An Unexpected Briefing" posted i another blog on this site will go down as a classic too.

Good ones. Humor is best with a suprise at the end. Super Humor works even though the surprise is known. I've replayed this one many times and it's still funny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LX95daYgmdA

MarvA - That is a good one. If more companies put that kind of creativity into their ads, I certainly wouldn't mind watching them. One of the nice things about Youtube is that it has allowed so many really talented and creative individuals to showcase their work. Too many to list.

Duane - Yes, I love an ad that is just plane fun and not insulting. Oops ! I just discriminated against 99% of the ads out there.

Oops. Make that plain fun, not plane fun. Actually, 405 was plane fun.

I am really curious how the Rockwell Retro Encabulator video came to be. They use real company logos and products, so perhaps this was a contest for their salespeople on who could deliver this complete BS with most gusto. Does anyone know the real story?

What a great question. I have seen the video a few times over the years but had never done any research. You inspired me to do a search on "Rockwell Retro Encabulator video" and came up with a hit on wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turboencabulator We engineers take grief all of the time for being "different". It takes an engineer to recognize the total BS in the video and really enjoy it. Engineers do have fun.

Fun stuff! I think marketing may have lent a hand with, "Here at Rockwell Automation's world headquarters, research has been proceeding to develop a line of automation products that establishes new standards for quality, technological leadership, and operating excellence. With customer success as our primary focus..."

I was recently at Lowes.com looking at how-to videos for flooring, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/v/f2MyCZKcSZQ But I just kept getting distracted from the project at hand, thinking about all those problems I used to have with capacitive diractance and how the Retro Encabulator helped me! (Same guy from the video now doing instructional videos for Lowe's...)

Well, then I watched the first 10 seconds of the first video, and am now sorry I had anything to do with this page. Not funny. Shame on you, Max.

Re: How could the guy keep a straight face? I think he had practice. If you watch the Chrysler version of this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXW0bx_Ooq4), the first two minutes is a virutally identical script, but funny to see in an automotive instead of industrial context. The technician who finishes the video - isn't he the same actor from the Rockwell video?? (And I LOVE what he says to tell customers at 3:30 into the video!)
