Alright, I'm just saying this for the folks who take the time to click the 'down' arrow to see more info and want to know the "inside scoop":

I'm not actually in sales, I'm the warehouse manager. One day, while inventorying guitars I realized that it was so loud in there that I couldn't think. I picked up my camera and filmed a bit (I'm not an actor, that's really how I felt; You would know I'm not an actor if you'd seen the films I'm in).
I posted it on my Facebook and got a good reaction from friends. As a result, I did it a few more times as the situation made itself available. My main point regarded the cacophony of sound, NOT the ability of the players, even though some people thought (and still think) I was making fun of talent.
Then it went viral. Honestly the weirdest experience of my life. Suddenly, complete strangers were telling me how much I sucked or rocked based on 20 seconds of my day. I took a lot of the negative personally because I grew up during a time when you talked behind somebody's back instead of anonymously telling it to their face.
I've since come to deal with it. The Google checks help.
I still find it weird that this is how I've come to "fame", but.... I'll take what I can get. Thank you for watching.
