Capitalizing on the success of the Magpul series of videos, comes this new series from Daniel Defense:
My initial impression is that production value looks pretty high, not quite as good as the Magpul videos, but still really good.
I do have one problem with these new Daniel Defense videos though, Larry Vickers.
I was aware he existed before hand, but only through his Vickers Tactical firearm products. They make a hell of a 2 point sling (I own the Victory Series sling).
I developed a pretty strong opinion of him after seeing one of the latest promo videos he made for Daniel Defense:
In the promo video he breaks 3 of my general life rules:
- Don’t use an slang word like “homes” in a video to a bunch of people you don’t know if you are over the age of 35.
- Don’t talk AT people… talk TO them. There is a big difference.
- Don’t pretend that you are well known by a particular nickname which you thought was cool so you started calling yourself it, in hopes it would catch on. In this case it’s “The LAV”, and it just sounds hilarious coming out of his own mouth.
The video is actually an edit of the original video which Daniel Defense took down for damage control because of the controversy of Larry Vickers calling AR15.com members “Assclowns who repair laserjet printers during the day, secretly watch spongebob during the evening”. Thanks to the awesomeness of the internet it is still available HERE.
I’m sure Daniel Defense and Larry will make a lot of money off the training videos… but if not, at least they generated a ton of exposure for both of their companies through the hype videos and the controversy.
It’s good to see the businesses in the realm of firearms delivering new content using up to date technology.
