I caught this video via Current.com and immediately the word ‘tedium’ popped into my brain, but I think the posters’ original description sums it up better than I can,
-Over 1000 cuts. 6 hours of guitar tabbing. 1 hour of shooting. God knows how much editing. Dude, you need to get your ass up and go outside.- (I added that last part)

I think this is the classic case of “if you’re willing to apply this much effort to such a trivial thing, imagine what you could accomplish if you focus even a fraction of that energy towards something constructive”. (now honestly, I shouldn’t talk, because I don’t focus most of my free time on anything worthwhile and I have A LOT of free time,*unless you consider playing Rock Band 2 Drums on Medium worthwhile*). Anyway, now that you, Mr. cut and paste, have wasted both your time creating this web gem and our time watching the end result, I think we’re all due for a little walk outside for some fresh air.
