This is too funny. A German boy orders the download of The Trilogy from Ellusionist only to find that it will take a long time to download. But Angry German Kid wants it NOW!

A bit of searching found an accurately translated version of this video here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P7r9Y0SSBQ

Of course, the properly translated version is not funny at all. The kid sounds just a bit too much like MY son when he's freaking out Smile. Except: when my son is REALLY freaking out, he starts swearing in English, because he knows that upsets me more than swearing in German. Still, just a bit too close to home....

Seriously, do any of you believe this is real? Who was recording him?

These people tape themselves. I knew a kid who did magic who begged me to check out his webcam, I did and it was on him typing to me. I never understood why he liked it on or why he wanted people to see the top of his head while he typed.

I have no idea why I laughed so hard. It shouldn't be funny, but...

For some stupid (pathological?) reason, I just couldn't lay this video to rest without looking for more information.

The best I could find is this: the original was put into the internet by someone who calls himself "der echte Gangster". I just finished watching several of his videos, at least one of which is filmed at what appears to be the identical desk setting (the room, window, everything seems identical). The kid fancies himself an "artist", and the film is indeed meant to be a parody of a kid who is going nuts playing in an Unreal tournament. Allegedly, the video was shown on German television by a magazine show (in the 20/20, 60 minutes fashion) as authentic--filmed secretly by the kids father--and as an example of the dangers of video games.

The German Wikipedia had an article placed, but then removed, on this kid. The ensuing discussion makes interesting reading: generally, some think that he is a kind of cultural icon, others think him to be no different than any other kid who has uploaded an oft-watched youtube video.

At least one of his videos had me laughing out loud, but it was also very offensive: he portrays a Turkish kid, talking in a very convincing kind of teen-aged Turkish accented street German, telling how it's family tradition to beat up on Germans. High art it wasn't.

Of course, of all the "translations", the "Trilogy" one is my favorite.
