Hilarious A380 Joke Documentary Online Video

Sun Jun 26, 2005 1:59 pm

DISCLAIMER: THIS VIDEO WAS NOT MADE BY ME. IT IS FROM www.fromtheflightdeck.com IT DOES NOT REPRESENT MY OPINION ON AIRBUS OR FRANCE. In fact, I found it somewhat disrespectful. I've never started an A vs B  box  fight , and I won't let this turn into one!!!  no 

With that said:

 bigmouth  DON'T JUMP INTO CONCLUSIONS ON ANYBODY, FRENCH, AMERICAN OR WHATEVER!!! IT IS ONLY A JOKE!!!

 relieved Anyways, I came around this video on the website, probably most, if not all of you have seen it, but here it is (8mb):

http://gablind.com/ftfd/A380Video.wmv

Feel free to comment, and BEHAVE YOURSELVES, but most important, enjoy!!!  bigthumbsup

I think this video was already discussed on a previous thread but I can't find it. Maybe I'm wrong...

BTW: The connection to gablind.com is very slow (and its a ~8 Mb video), or is it just me?

After two minutes the download is 3% completed - on a 4Mb/s DSL line. Sure this is a joke !!!

Guess that Zvezda created the best joke, probably the only real joke.

Does somebody know where that server is placed? Did they put it on the planet Pluto?

Guys, it is not the video which is so slow to download,
but the extensive amount of spyware which comes
with it.

if someone has already downloaded, can you re-post it in a faster server and create a couple of mirrors for the rest of us? That would be nice and speed things along quickly. Just a thought!

The video started in about 6 six seconds with dsl. Anyways this was a very clever video and most of the commentary is true. I don't know about the french food though.

Yesterday it almost took 2hrs to dwnl it, but this morning, about 5 seconds was enough! The server was certainly overloaded yesterday!

The movie was funny, yes, but I do love the A380 so I can't laugh too hard!
I guess the same kind of jokes were in the a.net forums on the net when the 747 came out. Yes of course, a.net is over 30 years old, didn't you know? Big grin

I wasn't born at the 747's introduction, so I don't know what was said but I'm quite sure the same question came about airport capacity, taxiways and terminals and so.. We'll get over it!

Cheers!

This video was indeed the topic of the previous discussion but I can't find it either.... nevermind.

The video was kinda funny the first time - but after that, it just kinda got a little boring.

Yeah... most of the commentary is true, yet none of the video images are.

Yeah, this video was discussed before. I suppose it was amusing the first time around, the second time, got bored after a few seconds.

Moving on...

Oh, and if there are any comments against French cuisine (didn't get that far on this second viewing).... well it just shows the "humorous" nature of the video.

OMFG! It truly reflects the fears people have of the A380 experience... especially the "world goes to pandemonium for an A380 delay"... LOL

Good Joke/Humour...

Well, it only took 30 posts to get to the sniffing about poor humor.

You may dial the complaint department at 00.1.800.LE.WAAAH.

This was pretty funny, and someone took the time to really put something clever together. As for the issues raised, well, I'd say that the cuisine issue is a non-starter but the passenger loading would have me a little nervous. I wonder what the line for the showers will be like?  Wink

BTW, get a sense of humor people! That really is a rather funny short film.

This couldn't have been from Boeing, it's really quite humorous and everyone knows our B friends in Seattle don't actually have a sense of humor.

However this video and a few of the posts here point out quite ironically that some of our European friends are lacking the same !!
