Video for the Day: Getting Angry at a Cable Company...With Style!

BROOKLYN, N.Y.—I just felt like sharing a video today—this one not something I made myself, but something on YouTube a co-worker of mine forwarded to me, and which I thought was hilarious enough to be worth sharing with all of you, if you hadn't encountered this yet.

If I unleashed my id and had to deal with losing my cable service and having to deal with a crappy cable company, I might sound like this guy:

Hell, to be honest, I probably talk somewhat like this guy now, especially when I'm at work—except I do it under my breath, when I think no one's listening. I think.

My favorite aspect of this video, by the way, besides the angry phone messages themselves—and seriously, who hasn't been in something like this situation before and hasn't felt a strong desire to vent in the uninihibited manner this guy does?—is its perfectly chosen use of the second movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony to score these messages. Oh, and the final message featured makes for a nice twist.
