    Is anyone else tired of shit like this? This is almost as bad as the Glock Torture Test Extreme video...

    When companies make these retarded action sequence videos to advertise their rifles, it really strikes me as cheesy. I don't need BCM to make a damn video showing some fake operators rescue some fake white Muslim "high value target" wearing a shalwar kamiz and a kufi from a fake scenario to get me to want some uber tactical rifle. I can't take companies seriously when I see shit like this. It has a negative reverse effect on me.

    PLEASE look at the camera! Are you talking to me or a fucking wall behind me? NOBODY, not ONE PERSON looks at the camera in this video. Even Larry Vickers looks at the camera from time to time in all his videos. COME ON.

    I'm starting to think all this shit is marketed towards people who like to imagine that they're some operator, and pay hundreds to thousands to take some class, where they intentionally treat their guns extra hard to get wear marks on them. I'm not saying all people who pay a lot to train are like this. Hell, i'm willing to bet many would agree with me on this bullshit marketing.

    The action bits go from the beginning of the video till 1:25, then Travis Haley and some BCM employees talk to the wall behind you for 6 minutes until more action (the cheesier half) starts again at 7:13.




    I group advertising like that in the same category as these advertising videos that I have shared in the following posts.

    Regarding the video below:

    "Please don't try this at home", says Glock.

    DAMMIT! I ALREADY hired a helicopter to rappel off of into valley where I can then climb a mountain solely to base jump off of and shoot at an explosive target during freefall, then land into a lake and get chased by a tank. Now what the hell am I supposed to do?

    Oh, nice, Costa has so many skills! Let me pay him a lot of money so he can teach me to drive a mini van and kill a bunch of people inside a desolate warehouse.

    I don't see the problem. I need to know that if I ever have to repel off of the hood of my SUV, after being attacked by some of the top shooting criminals in my area, that my gun will survive my tactical hood moves. These commercials may save your life one day. It is scientific FACT that our bodies resort to the coolest maneuvers our eyes have seen on video, in a time that calls for super human recollection. Thanks to these videos, I'm pretty sure I can single handedly end the crisis in Ukraine. Whoever wants a piece of the glory, watch these videos and meet me in the helicopter Jackashh hired. OK ALL HANDS IN! 1 2 3 LUDUS!!!

    I lump these ads with the ads that have the product being carried around by some bikini clad models. I hate them too.

    If I want to see barely dressed hot women or some guy run through the mud I will search for that. Neither one is going to make me buy your product. Your product is going to make me buy your product. Tell me about that please.
