This has to be one of the most likable people I've ever seen.

Same guy. This one is awesome! He carries a bag that's tight like a frog's butt. His message is powerful - it saves lives.

He's a real life Ron Burgundy.

You have to be a bit of a sadist to get through it, but the second video is better.

He personifies the term "douchebag."

His card's a bit over the top but he's spot on otherwise. I can tell in 2 seconds by looking at a card if I'm interested in the connection or not.

I actually love this video. I don't like his "talk down to you" style, but he's got some great travel ideas.

he's still talking right now...I was slowly building anger, but the indestructable karate pants and mandarin collar shirts were enough to seriously piss me off...i want to kick him in the balls...

that did it...pink on pink closing color..."if I want to separate the audience from some money..."

I can't believe he's married...what a douche

The karate pants and the mandarin collar were two nice touches. I love that he keeps asking the guy filming him questions, and the guy just keeps grunting. I can see the conversation:

Douchebag: "Hey, after we check into the hotel room, I need your help with something. You mind coming over to my room for a minute? It'll be quick."

Guy who works with Douchebag: "Um, sure. No problem whatsoever."

Douchebag: "Cool. I want to do a video about how I pack for trips. I was thinking I would go into excruciating detail about every item in my suitcase."

Guy who works with Douchebag, in his head: "****."

Something about this reminds me of Christian Bale in American Psycho.

It doesnt fit in a rolodex cuz it doesnt belong in a rolodex.

Wow, just wow. It also doesnt fit in a wallet, and barely in a shirt pocket.

So, unlike all the other cards that go in my rolodex, this one is gonna get tossed in my desk drawer to be lost and never seen again. That is effective use of 4 bucks.

Exactly. There is a standard size for a reason. If it's not the standard size no matter how flashy it is it will be tossed in the trash or lost in a pile at the bottom of some guys desk.

Hire a graphic designer* if you want a flashy card. His just says tacky douchebag I wouldn't want to work with if I had other options.

*Seriously, this goes for everybody, hire a graphic designer/illustrator if you need professional business cards done. Don't go with templates or other generic ****. It's really easy to find a student capable of doing good work without the cost of a hiring a professional firm to handle all of your stuff.
