Funny though.

They showed this on attack of the show a few days ago. I though prime sounded familiar. He sounds like Solid Snake from Metal Gear.

Speaking of which, why aren't DR SMOOTH's videos in the video section yet? It can't be because he curses because I've seen cursing on other videos in the section.

Unless they have been added, in which case disregard, but I searched the other day and didn't find them.

There was some chuckles, and DR.SMOOV is great, but the clip was less than hillarious.

good clip not funny though ipod for long trips on the road.

If ipods are that good they wouldnt keep making more updated version with the same features with more memory microsoft should just make one ipod with all the feature with memroy card slots built into it to build up the memory when its full when an ipod is full cant add anymore stuff to it unless you delete some previous stuff to it or go out and buy new one.

That was pretty funny.

....But on the other hand, it is stuff like that that is probably why people see G1's designs as being "dated"...because as much as people keep wanting to say the new Prime is better, the only things we really have to compare it to are half-arsed fan jobs that are nowhere near ILM quality simply because there was a lot more time & money that went into the movie Prime's design than what a fan could even dream of.
