Thread: Watching watch video-reviews

    Watching watch video-reviews

    First question: why does nobody write themselves a sodding script?! Painful listening to people stumbling through repetitive rubbish whilst failing to get the watch in focus.

    That's a good point. As long as you're putting it on the internet for the world to see (and comment on, for that matter), might as well have a rough outline of what you'd like to say and edit out the burps and sniffles later.

    Maybe not a script, but at least some notes to refer to wouldn't go a miss.

    Me either, but from what I've heard they're usually non-scripted, they never seem to get the bloody watch in focus and they just seem to stumble through repetitive rubbish Name:  Nods.gif

    In their minds, everyone thinks they are God's gift to announcing......painful or not....

    I like to play a game of count the "Erm"s with them.

    At the other end of the spectrum, there's the 'man moves watch in front of camera' approach; eg:

    I mean.... What is the point ?
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    It could be worse. They could have music.



    Gee, thanks. I know nothing new about the watch and I feel like I just spent hours at an underground club in Romania.
