Fun Video: Getting that Dang Thing to Work

Posted by: Eric Schubert Updated: October 13, 2011 - 11:09 AM


Many of us have been exactly where Bruce and Esther in this video have been . . . .trying to get that techno thinga-majingy to work.   Only most of us didn't have our granddaughter share the experience with more than 8 million people and counting.

Bruce and Esther Huffman, who live in Oregon and stars of this video are great sports.  While trying to get their laptop camera to work, they're unknowingly taping themselves.  He makes faces, sings, burps, gets frisky.  And she keeps focused on getting the dang thing to work.

Technology . . . today's candid camera.
