However, we'll openly admit to much of the ridiculous shit that goes on here, and absolutely welcome all that wish to make fun of it. But anyone that wishes to do so should probably give up, because you'll never succeed better than David Rees.
While sure, this video takes place in Beacon, NY, we all know it's a riff on the Brooklyn dream. The dream of taking up some oddly specific craft and bringing pretentious assholery to it. Whether its pickles brined in the tears of your lost childhood or a tattoo artist that only uses inks made from beet juice (neither of these things is real, but might as well be), David's brilliantly dry satire will call you out.
Sure, it's a little long. But for the funniest video I've seen come along in months, it's totally worth digging in. After all, "pencils are, in a lot of ways, the opposite of the internet."
