    I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time :)

    • Gerry

      I wonder what camera he used to take the video with.

      • Click

        Probably a Canon 5D2, this was probably produced after the last issue or House…… lol… I would have joined that guy and got down on the ground with him if it would produce a D700 replacement….

        Someone did a great job on this video, very funny indeed…

          That’s how I always imagined the infamous DPreview “experts” in real life. Spot on. Sorry, I don’t want to insult anybody.

          Taking a picture every once in a while is the best cure for NAS.

    • Adam

      You’re sh1tting me? You North Americans have the WORST HUMOUR EVER.

      That’s was atrocious. Seriously

      And he can’t pronounce Nikon

      • Anonymous

        I guess someone being pathetic is funny for some. I must admit I prefer something with just a little bit of intelligence or creativity. Each to their own. We all think we have a sense of humor after all….

        • Highlight

          Now I believe I have no humor…

        • Anonymous

          Agree! this was not in the slightest bit funny. Just some arsehole acting like a child. Sorry but this is pathetic.

      • Banned

        I agree. I really didn’t think it was funny at all. I just thought “wow, this grown man needs a life, a family to care for a purpose in life”. But I’m not North American.

        • Amien

          I agree, they have no humour at all & just like to stick with themselves. It’s an overly proud nation with no history and culture. Time to move elsewhere !

          • Alex

            like where exactly? “Culture” usually means old buildings, tiny roads, tiny crap cars, tiny houses and overpriced food and living costs with and everything being illegal. No thanks! You can keep it!

            • Jose

              “Pro-gun canadian”? Is that an underground movement somewhere in Quebec province? ;-)

            • Gib

              There’s also a correlation between “culture” and “superiority complex”

            • Dr Fuzz

              Well Alex, if that’s your idea of culture… then God help us all. By the way… do you want fries with that?

            • Anonymous

              …notice we don’t get any European videos to post.

              Are they afraid of their culture… or is it their teeth?

              AMIRITE???!?!!

            • Alex

              LOL @ Fuzz, it’s not my idea of culture I was having a dig at Amien.

            ok, I have to clean up this thread – it’s out of control again :(

            • Alex

              So one guy makes a light-hearted video, and this website gets hate mail blaming the whole of America. LOL. It’s Obama’s fault!

            • Ric

              Can’t be.

              According to BHO it’s still Bush’s fault. I actualy blame Thatcher. :-)

              I love the content of this site, but this is too stupid for words…

      • http://damnhandy.com Ryan

        You comment assumes that North Americans actually find this funny. I now want my 28 seconds back. This was terrible.

          For me, it was the incisive script and oscar-worthy delivery that made this a cut above the average you-tube rubbish. An almost perfect bit of acting – I’m totally convinced this guys is a pathetic gearhead. Genius acting ! The dumb-as-ass laugh at the end just added to the realism. Well done soundman ! The people in costumes should be shot though. After all, if you’re going to parody a pathetic gearhead, they should at least have given him a lightmeter and a multi-pocket waistcoat. And there wasn’t an tripod anywhere to be seen. How are the less intelligent supposed to know the plot ?

        The funny part is in the reference to NikonRumors. You’re sh1tting me that you didn’t get it.

      • Justin

        I’m from North America and I didn’t find it funny at all. It was really really dumb.

      • Jose

        Guess he pronounced Nikon just the american way. IIRC from DPR thread, only gringos do that in English, not brits, aussies et al. Not sure about canucks…

      • http://www.fioritofoto.com nfiorito

        He pronounces Nikon the way it’s pronounced in their North American commercials, so you really can’t blame him. Or us.

    • Leif

      Pathetic. Not in the least bit humorous.

    • GropedBear

      I wonder what Americans find funny in this video…

      I just can’t find anything remotely funny about it. Weird? yes. Silly? yes. Cringe-worthy? yes. But funny? No. It doesn’t fit into the very wide range of things I find funny. My loss, I guess.

    • Bob

      LOL!

  • King-Pin

    That is hilarious!

    Mind you, it would be even more awesome if it was a flashmob with hundreds of people doing the same thing at the Nikon parking lot! :D

    • GlobalGuy

      This is a great idea. Let’s flashmob Nikon in Los Angeles and all the major Nikon cities with signs demanding the D800! Just as a joke/fun thing for Nikon-spirit building. Preferably on a Saturday, so the employees can join in too. How can we start a flashmob event?? Bring your cameras! =D

      • Victor Hassleblood

        FREE ADVERTISING,

        I would record that flashmob of yours and cut it together with some guy appearing in the window and presenting the D800 (as soon as it’s there) and shouting “here you are”. That would turn it into a YOU ARE NIKON ad/spot.

      • King-Pin

        LOL!

        Well, how about getting the Admin here to start one, heh heh heh. ;)

      If you guys want to organize a flash mob, you can use facebook or twitter – I can certainly spread the word, but I do not want [NR] to be the organizer of such event.

  • Anonymous

    please! Nikon I don’t want to come back to NR in at least three years, I’m here everyday! this is sick! release that camera please!

  • Click

    Was that guy “Mr. Grey Market”. By the color of his uniform, it seems so. He is really desperate for an upgrade or new body since he went down on all fours….. lol…..goood one even though we still don’t have a D800 or D4.

      I would be pretty surprised if Nikon didn’t annouce the D4 next year. I would be surprised if they did announce a D700 or D3s replacement this year. Nikon surprise me!

  • donde?

    Actually I’ve shot a bunch of really great pictures with my “old” D80 that I’m wondering if I really needed a new camera.

    (of course I do, who cares about pictures!)

  • http://www.ragunaru.com Ragnar

    What a fucking disgusting way to pronounce Nikon. I mean really, if you’re so big of a fan, at least pronounce it the way it’s pronounced.

  • Deputy

    He should have done it in Japanese! I’m sure Nikon USA wants the new cameras more than anyone but it’s the old guys in Japan running the company who just don’t get it!
    (I used to work for a major Japanese tech company….)

    I dream of day when Nikon will announce the D3 – D700 new line.

    Could have been improved if he had pronounced Nikon correctly, but the epic win makes up for that.

  • chewz

    nikon not naikon

    • Nikoniastu

      Yep… I think we should all start saying also CAINON and not Canon. Is just time!!. Same way like “soccer”…. We invented football (and I mean the real game where you use your feet 99% of the time and where you get penalty if you use your hands). Why the H…LL. they should call it soccer… its football. Soccer even sounds like a bad word similiar to fu….er or su…er. You know!!

      • Roan

        Good example, except that soccer is a british word. A slang way of saying ‘Association football’ which was the orginal name for the european code of football to distinguish it from ‘Rugby football’

      • http://www.flickr.com/photos/friedtoast/ Fried Toast

        And where’s “CAINON” supposed to be from? If you’re going to pick on Canon pronunciation, it might be a bit difficult to pin down who’s right.

        When written in Japanese, it’s kyanon (キャノン). Whenever I hear Japanese people say it, I think they’re saying “kanon.” They may be saying, “kyanon” however. I haven’t paid much attention.

        Regardless, “kyanon” is from “Kannon” (or Kwannon).
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guan_Yin
        So… shouldn’t we really be calling them “Guan Yin?” “Kannon” is merely a localization of “Guan Yin,” so how is that any more correct that Americans saying nigh-kon (instead of the Japanese nee-cone)?

    If you all are fanboys than act like one :)

    • Dee Seven-OhOh

      I think you mean ‘then act like one’…

    • Mike

      It’s called dialect. Even in Canada, Nikon employees pronounce their own company’s name ‘Nai-con’. By now, to us, it seems silly to pronounce it ‘knee-con’. Too British. Just like the Brits say ‘Al-u-mini-um’, North Americans say ‘Aloom-in-um’ but it’s spelled the same way. Don’t get upset with my American cousins, they’ve been doing things differently since they formed their republic! And much of their culture and pronounciation has rubbed off on us. (btw, I agree that football to describe American Football is silly. One guy actually makes contact with the ball with his foot during the game and even then it’s only 6-7 times. Even rugby has more foot to ball contact!). (And rugby involves way more athletisism but sees zero coverage here, but that’s a whole other topic of discussion).

      • Jojo

        Most americans actually say “A-loo-mi-num”.

        • Jojo

          And the second line to my post…

          … and only a few say A-loo-min-ium.

            There’s an H in there noobs. :-P

            (yes using “an” in front of “H” is actually correct if you pronounce “H” correctly).

            • Alex

              but in traditional old English, H at the start of a word is silent. The words “History,” “Historian”, “Historically,” etc are often pronounced without an H sound at the front because, funnily enough, historians have often learnt that the English language had changed, and wasn’t “correct.” And, YES, there would be an “an” in front of “historian.”

    Off topic, but there are new promotions on D3000, D5000, and D700 where discounts on some accessories, speedlights, and lenses are purchased together with the body. The promotions are in Singapore by the way. These promotions are launched to commemorate the Youth Olympic Games and expected to last till 31st August, but I’m quite certain it is also because of the upcoming announcements.
