Since it’s been discussed extensively on these forums, here’s AvE’s take:
Already been shared and discussed a bit over here:
There should probably be a language warning on that video.
I don’t disagree with the things he’s saying.
I’m pretty sure I recall that some/all of the Glowforge marketing video was done with another laser to visualize what the Glowforge would do. But I could be completely misremembering that. And, really, I don’t disagree with that practice. It’s marketing. If Whoppers looked like they do on TV, I’d eat one every day.
That’s funny. When I was in high school I worked at a Kentucky Fried Chicken. The same guy owned all the ones in CT back then so all local advertising was coming from his stores. I cooked the chicken for a series of posters and print ads (didn’t know that was what it was going to be used for at the time). I used fryers that hadn’t had the oil changed so it was slightly burnt. That left black flecks on the chicken which everyone assumed were some of the secret “11 herbs & spices” It was actually slightly undercooked to get the corn flake color they held up as the standard (a slightly darker Wheaties color is better cooking & tasting) and suffering from burnt oil residue. But it really looked great in the photos
This seems as good a place as anywhere to place this. Gave me nightmares about both KFC and VR in one shot.
Okay, that’s disturbing. The new Colonel is almost as creepy as that giant plastic King that Burger King had in its commercials a couple of years back.
BTW, unlike the video shows, we never washed the chicken.
But we did tuck the wings and pull gobs of yellow fat off the chicken parts before frying.
uh, ? I don’t know if I can like that comment. lol
It’s kind of put me off of chicken.
My wife doesn’t understand why I don’t eat much of it.
Had the same thing happen in high school (when I worked for KFC). Went to college met my now wife and she had conversations with my family in the early years.
She was devastated to learn how I would not eat chicken. Thankfully, her cooking skills brought me back (especially her South Pacific chicken and Lemon chicken recipes)!
