Shakespeare and the Squig

The below video features Paul Barnett in Korea, making a pitch/presentation, and while I watch this video, goosebumps form on my arm.  Paul’s sunglasses are mirrors that reflect my own face.  Have you ever had to “sell” something you love to an apathetic audience, ever been “lost in translation”, or otherwise just been misunderstood?

Am I reading too much into this video?  

Probably.  For now, I offer you some Shakespeare:

“A poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, 
signifying nothing.”
– Macbeth

  1. I agree … very uncomfortable video. Awkward comes to mind.

    Who was he pitching to? He seems like a creative guy but that’s the best he could come up with?
