How to Film and Photograph Yourself | TECH TALK


What up beautiful people? It is
your homegirl Ms. Shameless all up in your building. Giving you
another Tech Talk, yes. And the video is how to photograph
and film yourself, because we all trying
to be YouTube sensations, and/or Instagram
models. [laughs] But yes, this video is
going to break it down, how I photograph
and film myself. And it’s very easy
and straightforward, so keep watching. OK, so this is the first setup. And what you need to do first, before you start recording,
is have powder and chap stick, because nobody likes
your dry, crusty lips, or your greasy, sweaty face, and I have been guilty of both. So, you can just go to any drug store,
Sephora, you know, and any powder for guys, just get a
translucent press powder. This is like the most
basic, straightforward. And you just go over everything. Because just the
whole act of standing and being recorded is sweaty, and then you add-on the
lights and all that stuff. I rock the Burt Bees, woohoo, or a lip gloss for
girls, all that fun stuff. This is basic, OK. So there, we’re almost ready. Now for the camera setup, we got to make
sure that’s in order. Then you want to make sure
that your camera is on a tripod. Get yourself a nice
lightweight tripod. If your camera is light, or get a heavier, sturdy tripod
if you have a heavier camera. This is kind of
heavy with the lens. I did a lighter tripod,
and I broke my lens once, so. I’d never do that ever again. OK, so then once you have
your camera on your tripod, you’re going to face
it towards yourself, OK. And then you want to make sure
that you have nice lighting. So, you can use
natural lighting, this is like some
nice window lighting, and you can either face
directly towards the light, or you can use
artificial lighting. And I have a video on that, I have a video
dedicated to a lighting setup. So just read the
description box or click here. OK. And then you can
like, ah! Ring light. That’s what all the
beauty gurus are rocking. Just an easy
straightforward setup, OK. You need a remote, if you do not have a camera
that automatically focuses. So my Canon 5D and 7D
don’t have automatic focus, so I just get this remote, and I put it on
camera mode first, so photo, and then I click
it, and then it focuses on me, and then I run to the
back of the camera like this, and I’m like,
“OK, I’m in focus.” And then before you leave
you have like put a marker, so yes look at this, hot. [laughs] My hot slippers
and socks. Just put a marker somewhere. So then you put your tape
down, and then you focus it, and then you’re almost ready. So you switch it from
video mode to photo mode, and then you click here, and make sure you put
it on the remote setting. So, self timer, two
second remote, bam. OK. Then you put it
on auto focus here, from manual if it’s on manual. OK, and then!
That was loud Maya. Then you take a photo. [camera clicks] Because it’s auto
focusing on that photo. [camera clicks] And then I put it on video mode. So video mode, and then I’ll put
this from auto focus to manual. And then I shall
record myself, there see. Look that remote swag, that’s how you take
a video of yourself, and then just put
it on camera mode if you just want to take photos. If you don’t have a remote, for the longest time I
did not have a remote. This thing. I would focus the camera on something that
would be where I am. So I’ll get that. [♪ upbeat music ♪] This is my stand-in. So, I would have her there. And then I would
make sure she’s in focus. [♪ upbeat music ♪]
Record, bam. Get out my way! And then I hope for
the best that it’s in
focus, and usually it is, but there are a lot of
times that it’s not in focus, and I’m just like,
“Whatever. Whatever!” That is how you film
and photograph yourself. [camera clicking] Make sure you
guys like this video, subscribe, comment
below and let me know what is the
weather like in your city? I just want to
know, OK, that’s it. Remember guys to do
you, be you, and stay true, boo. Be shameless. [♪ upbeat music ♪]

Capturing Movement With Continuous Shooting | I AM Different Tips ‘n Tricks

Capturing Movement With Continuous Shooting | I AM Different Tips ‘n Tricks


[Continuous shooting.] Hi, I’m Thomas from Nikon School. We’re here
on the set of the Blossom project and I will give you
some tips about photography. In order to capture
the moment you really want, especially when you take
some pictures of movement, the burst mode will help you to break down the movement
with many images. Especially if you have a moment
that will never happen again. You can use this burst mode
and secure your images. So about the D7200,
what makes it stand out is that there is a special burst mode
at 7 frames per second which is made by the crop mode. And then you’ll have
even more images to bring back
the right moment in your images. [Discover other inspiring ideas!

Design Challenge – designing and making a set

Design Challenge – designing and making a set


As a set designer, you will see the design from concept right through to opening night. You’re really the caretaker for that set throughout the whole process. You’re the filter, visually, for everything that happens on that stage. I don’t want people to think they need to be architects or builders or have a degree in engineering in order to be a set designer, you don’t. You need to have an awareness of space and depth and you need to be a great storyteller, you need to know how to get people to believe in a space. The process of creating a new set involves lots of collaboration and lots of discussion to begin with. I first approach a brief by talking to the director about how he wants to approach the piece. Then we do lots of research. I look at films. I look at music videos. I look at other people’s work. I look at other performances. I research past productions and themes within the piece. I research genre, period, architecture. I go to libraries I google, and then I have meetings with the director and we look at how we want to approach the piece and how we want to approach the design. Eventually, fast forwarding, we start producing a scale model. The scale model is a tool for us to work out how the performers are going to move and interact in the space. Eventually that model becomes a tool that we send to the builders in order for them to create the set in real life. A set can help to tell the story of an opera or a ballet by either being architecturally naturalistic, so it provides a recognisable backdrop, or it could be poetic and abstract, it can be providing a colour, or a mood, or a feeling. Essentially there isn’t any difference in how a set can work for opera or ballet or for straight theatre or for an installation. It’s really about supporting the art work that the director is making and hopefully the atmosphere that you create informs the character as to the world they live in and, therefore, what kind of person they are. Because if you know the world you live in, you know who you are. If you’re interested in a career in set deign, a degree is definitely useful. There are lots of great courses, I trained at Central Saint Martins. I don’t think it’s essential to have a degree, you’ve just got to have a lot of exposure to theatre, and the people that I work with on a daily basis come from all different walks of life and have had all different experiences, and it’s those different experiences that create interesting theatre, because everyone brings their own story to the table. I think as long as you have the basics, you have an understanding of scale, and shape, and space, I would say you’ve just got to volunteer in theatre and take every opportunity you can to work in theatre and tell stories. The best advice I can give to somebody designing their own set is to see as much theatre as they can, see as much of other peoples work as they can because the more you see, the more ideas you can feed upon. Ultimately, there’s no such thing as a completely original idea, all there is is an amalgamation of experiences that you’ve had, that you bring together into one cohesive final scene.

Canon EOS 7D Shutter Speed Tutorial

Canon EOS 7D Shutter Speed Tutorial


a nice short episode of making I’ve made
I haven’t made any videos for a while but I just thought like this quick one
on this kind of 7d and today I’m gonna demonstrate how to change the shutter
speed and to get a really good shutter speed for like if you’re an Instagram
user or your loved shutter speed use an how to change you really on this model
so I’m going to switch it on first so that’s the switch ones them and switch
this on so you switch it on once I’ve switched it on I’m gonna put it into AV
mode so it’s already at the moment on AV mode as you can see so once I put it on
AV mode I can now play around with the shutter speed so if I click on this this
little cue button here okay so if I click on the little Q button it will
take me to the main menu ok so once I’m in the main menu I can then change
various things within there so if I go back to the queue and there’s my shutter
speed so essentially all I need to do is change that and how I would do that is I
can either I can revolve this rule little wheel bottom wheel button here
and that will allow me to change the shutter speed so if I just do that I can
change shutter speed so I can take your one 4/20 to the second 50 to the second
eighth of a second and I can take it back for through the way around so if I
take it 400 you can see it’s dead quick and if I turn it the other way so if I
can click on this cue button here and turn it the other way and I take it to
no one minus one point three seconds and take a picture this time moving my
camera around I should get a little bitch motion blur in the picture and you
can see it’s it’s overexposed the picture so I haven’t got card in here
but I’m just demonstrating this so if I do that again so if I see if I click on
the cue button there’s my shutter speed and if I take a picture move it around
you can clearly see there it’s overexposed okay so show speeds mainly
for using with in low-light you know you want to increase the shutter speed so
you got more like coming through to the aperture so therefore your pictures will
be better exposed you need to control it via the shutter
speed and aperture in order to get the right consistency you know obviously I
so plays a factor as well in low light so that’s something you need to think
about but summarize basically you just put your camera on to put it into AV
mode so it’s at the moment in AV mode there you go and then if I sort of press
my camera on click on the cue button that is my shutter speed and to change
you all I do revolve around this to increase and decrease my shutter speed
to get the best exposure for the before the image any questions about shutter
speed pleased to keep my shot so if you want to be low shutter speed like light
drawings and all that sort of so I’m really want to take this number down by
revolving this you know to get that nice exposure you might need to sort plan on
with your ISO as well and you have your aperture ratio to get the right noise
level down to get the nice image that you want okay this is obviously this
camera is not touchscreen so I’m not so I’m using the touchscreen features on
here because they don’t exist basically however you know it does you know it is
quite useful in terms of the your shutter speed you know I’ve got a live
mood live view here as well so as you can clearly see in my live view I’ve got
it in for camera mode here’s my shutter speed so I can also change you by the
wheel up here as well so there’s a weird there’s a wheel here and I can move this
in an at and I can also use this as well I want to do that you can see you can
see the number will change as you can see that okay if I bring a bit closer
maybe there you go so the number changes and then you know the more the more
seconds like seconds I’ll give it the more explaining focus it is the less
I’ll give it so if I take it dad you can see my screen starts to get out of like
it becomes white because there’s too much light going through to the sensor
so you know you’ll essentially what it is that the show is a gay and you are
controlling the matter light that goes to the sensor okay so as simple as that
okay so if you like you point and let’s see a visual then
obviously you can see by this but obviously if you want to see in your
quick time view which is this one here then you can see in your quick time view
and it will show you all the dials etc to show you what the views are okay
summarize I’ve just shown you shutter speed perfect for slow shutter speed if
you are thinking about taking those pictures in low light and you want to
create drawings like drawing shall I say sorry any questions please post and I
will be happy to respond to any questions you may have thank you for
watching guys see you next time

Photography tips – Steps to becoming a happy photographer

Photography tips – Steps to becoming a happy photographer


– What is up, guys. Welcome to my YouTube channel, where we talk all things photography. I’m up, right and breezy, this morning, We’re down by Tara Hill,
and I’m gonna shoot some cityscapes, to see how we get on. Hold on, this isn’t what
my YouTube channel’s about. I’ve been trying to force
the issue, this morning. It’s a kind of proven model. YouTuber, photographer,
B-roll, this and that’s that, but I don’t enjoy shooting cityscapes. I’m just kinda forcing myself to do something that I don’t enjoy,
because I see others do it. So on that note, let’s get into the video. (classy downtempo music) So this morning, I went
out to try and shoot some cityscapes, and
that’s normally what I do. I do what YouTubers who do that, and who have big
audiences, and I am trying to grow my YouTube channel, so I felt this pressure to go out
and try and recreate that. I live in London, there’s
some great buildings, the sun hadn’t risen, it
was a perfect opportunity. But the more I walked around, the more I felt this pressure on my shoulders, and it really reminded me of this pressure that I used to feel when I first took up photography, when I was in college, and they gave me a camera, and I had to go out and take
pictures around the street. I felt so self-conscious, this was almost before mobile phones had cameras on them, this was 10 years ago, so
no one was really using ’em, but I felt so self-conscious
with that camera. I had in my head this idea that, wherever I’m pointing the camera to, someone’s gonna stand
behind me and look at it, and just think, that’s a shit
photo, why are you doing that? That’s kind of rubbish, you’re
not a good photographer, so you’re wasting your time
(multiple voices talking). Now, this is when I just
picked up a camera in college. And actually, on that note, I didn’t pick up a camera again, ’til sort of midway through uni, which was three years later. So I started to feel
this pressure on myself, this morning, to do something, and I’ve not felt that in awhile. I shoot stuff out on
location all the time, whether that’s people
running through the streets, or any sort of fitness
thing, or in central London, or in cities, or outside, and
I do enjoy taking landscapes. But landscapes, not cityscapes. And yeah, I just started
to feel this real pressure on myself, to the point where I just put my camera away, and thought,
I’m not gonna do this. But what it did do was inspire me to make this video,
because there’s one thing that I want to cover a bit more of, on my video, and that’s the mindset of photography, as well as giving tips and tricks on how to use your camera, and how you use Photoshop,
and Capture One. I want this channel to bring
value in a different way. There’s plenty of other
channels, tutorial channels, out there, but I think, especially if you wanna be self-employed, especially if you wanna do photography, or anything art-based, freelance, as your own business, there’s a lot of pressures and stuff
that come with that, and I can only speak to
what I’ve experienced. But hopefully, it can
kinda reassure people who are going through the same thing, that they’re not alone, and
it can maybe warn people just beginning their adventure as a self-employed photographer, it can maybe kind of warn you
of the potential pitfalls, and stuff, that you might come across. Really, that’s something
that’s kind of dogged me for the whole time, since I’ve lived in London, really, the
last sort of six years. I’ve always felt pressure from myself, to the point, upon viewing others, that I need to be shooting certain things. And authenticity is what
people can relate to, so in the end, I put my camera away, and that kinda brings
me onto my first point, about caring about what
other people think. I’m not shooting photographs
for the sake of others. Really, you have to find something that is genuinely you, and then
it will become much easier. So something I’ve found,
in the last two years, is, I’m really honed in on,
is sport, and athletes, and the athletic lifestyles,
and storytelling. So whether that’s
getting across the effort that someone’s putting in, in a workout, or the process that it
takes to make a product. So really, my first point to becoming a happier photographer
would be, assess yourself. You can do that in a few, various ways. One of them would be
what I just said, there, make sure you’re shooting
stuff that you enjoy, that you are about, that
you’re enthusiastic about. Shoot stuff that you enjoy doing, and not stuff that you think
you should be shooting. And that’s really easy
to get caught up in that. I’ve got caught up in
that plenty times, myself. Yeah, you can get nice photographs, but is your heart really in it? That’s really what you
have to be questioning yourself about, and if
it’s not, don’t do it, and don’t worry about the interest, that may or may not be there,
in your chosen subject. If you really like shooting plants, or any ass random thing, then don’t worry. Just shoot it, because
ultimately, the happiness is your number one goal, and that’s
what you have to focus on. Just shoot in what you enjoy. Wow, that was a ramble, jeez. In assessing yourself, take real stock of what you’re consuming. I can’t remember what YouTube channel it was, or what I was
watching the other day, or who it was I was listening to, but they said, when
you’re scrolling through your Instagram, if an
account isn’t filling you with warmth, or
bringing something valuable to your life, then click Unfollow. And I am so guilty of this. I follow so many different photographers, and originally, I thought I
was getting into operation, the people, either in
the same field as me, or more successful than me, or, I would scroll through Instagram, and all you see is a
congregation, an aggregation, of everyone else’s work. So you scroll through Instagram, and it gives you this false impression that everyone is super busy, every day, shooting stuff, and if you’re freelance, and you’re not busy every day, it’s really easy to get dragged
down by that, being like, oh, hey, I’m not working enough. I’m not doing enough, look at
all these people doing work. Whereas actually, that
guy who just posted that, it’s the first thing
he’s posted in a month. He’s going through this, or she’s going through the same struggles as you, and be brutal, and don’t
worry about offending people, but really kind of have a bit
of a cull, on your Instagram, and really only follow
things that, follow accounts that are bringing you value, and making you feel good about yourself. So that would be my point,
just follow accounts that make you feel good,
and not the accounts that you maybe feel that you have to. I’m only speaking from experience. So for example, shooting sport, and being around athletes, makes me happy, but like I mentioned earlier, I felt like I needed to shoot fashion, because I was surrounded
by people in fashion when I was working at studios,
and for other photographers. So I felt like, ah, this
is the way it needs to go. I know I really love doing this stuff, but everyone else kinda says I should go this way, so I’ll go that way. So try and realize what it
is that makes you happy, what it is that makes you happy shooting, and don’t worry about
other people’s opinions, or whether you feel there’s
a market there, or not. There is always a market for something. Your happiness is your own responsibility, and once you take ownership of that, you start putting into place the actions which will bring about your own happiness, and others around you will
start to feel the benefits. So I guess what I’m trying
to say is, regardless of what you may or may not think you should or should not be shooting, if it makes you happy, just do it. And that might be simple advice, it might be a bit cliche,
but it’s the best thing that I’ve been trying to get through to my head in the last 12 to 24 months. This has been a really
difficult video for me to make. I hope it’s kinda got my point across, or they’re not points,
they’re just thoughts on things that I’ve encountered recently, chains of thoughts, ways of thinking, and the kinda mechanisms that I’ve tried to put in place, that
help you kinda navigate your way through life, as a photographer, or a freelancer, because it’s not easy. It’s difficult, especially without wanting to sound too cliche, but especially with the ever-apparent pressures of the Internet, whether
that’s social media, or otherwise, everyone else’s success and failures are kind
of put on a platform. And it’s very difficult to watch everyone else’s success,
even successes, even though everyone goes through the same struggles. And it also kind of makes
you wanna hide away, ’cause you don’t want
people to see your failures. But hopefully, with some of the things that I’ve explained, and gone through, and talked about, here,
in this video, you can at least find way of shooting
things that make you happy. And ultimately, if you’re shooting happy, you’re gonna shoot more,
and you’ve got more chance of successes, unlike my speech today. It’s been horrendous. That was a bit of a ramble, today. I hope it brought some value to you guys. I’m trying to implement more videos of this style into my YouTube. Ultimately, I want my
YouTube to be a reflection of what I think, and
go through, in my life, so whether that’s, say,
behind-the-scenes videos, photography tips or tricks, or methods of thinking, and
practices that you can put in place, to ultimately
help you be a better, but more importantly,
happier, photographer. Thanks for watching, guys, and
I’ll see you in the next one. (introspective music)

How to start changing an unhealthy work environment | Glenn D. Rolfsen | TEDxOslo

How to start changing an unhealthy work environment | Glenn D. Rolfsen | TEDxOslo


Translator: Leonardo Silva
Reviewer: Ruy Lopes Pereira Imagine that you’ve just received
some negative information about me, just before this talk. Maybe he or she who’s with you today
has heard some rumors about me, some rumors about me being incompetent, being a liar, being a bragger, that I wear women’s underwear – (Laughter) How much do you think that would affect
your image of me right now? As a psychotherapist,
working with occupational health, I’ve met countless employees and leaders who are suffering from a toxic
and unhealthy working environment. They are struggling
because they’re lacking knowledge how to change the environment. They need outside help. I’ve tried to help them and failed,
times and times again. I’ve tried conflict resolutions, group discussions, individual interviews, leadership coaching, failing time and time again to change
this unhealthy working environment. So – Ten years ago, I started
a little investigation of my own. I was trying to figure out
why it is so hard to change, and I found out that a great number
of employees and leaders were talking negatively
about their colleagues when they were not present. Namely, backbiting. So, the definition of backbiting
is talking negatively about a third person who’s not present. I have a question for you all. Please raise your hand if you think backbiting takes place
at your workplace or place of study. Please raise your hand. Wow! OK. Thank you very much. It’s not exact, but I think
about 90% of you raised your hand. In ancient Greece, the great philosopher Socrates
met an acquaintance on the street, and the acquaintance said, “Hey, Socrates, have you heard
the latest news about your friend?” And Socrates says,
“No, but before you tell this news, I want you to pass a little test. It’s called the triple-filter test.” “The triple-filter test?”, he said. “OK.” “First question: what you’re going to tell me
about my friend, is it true?” “Oh, no. I just heard it. I don’t know.” “OK. You can still pass the test. The second question: is it anything good you’re going
to tell me about my friend?” “Oh, no. On the contrary,”
he said. “Nothing good.” “OK. You may still pass the test. The third question: what you’re going to tell me,
is it useful?” “Oh, no. It’s not useful.” “OK,” Socrates said. “First of all,
you don’t know if it’s true. Second, it’s nothing good. Third of all, it’s nothing useful. Why bother tell me?” Do you know who,
in our society today, that backbites? Yes. Women. (Laughter) It’s women. (Laughter) It’s another major group, as well. Namely, men. (Laughter) And why do we backbite? When I backbite, I’ve got this feeling of elevating myself,
while talking other people down. In an additional bonus, I seem interesting because I’ve got some
juicy information that you don’t have. This is how we, as adults,
are bullying each other. I have a second question for you. Please raise your hand
if you want to work in a place where there is no backbiting going on. No gossip. OK. Thank you very much. It’s interesting, right? How to get a permanent end to backbiting? I have done one genius thing in my life. (Laughter) I think this is it. I call it “Gossip 2016,” and this is how you can all apply it
in your workplace, if you want to. First of all, you gather a group. Perhaps, not as many as you are. Second of all,
you ask the first question: “Do you believe backbiting
takes place here?”, and they will raise their hand. Third, you need to define
what backbiting is. Use this triple-filter test.
It’s good, right? Fourth, ask the second question: “Would you like to work in a workplace
where there’s no backbiting?”, and they will raise their hand. Then, you get a good
old-fashioned flipboard, and you capitalize “Gossip 2016,” and you ask your group
if they want to join a project that will last for six months:
“No Backbiting Takes Place Here.” And they will sign.
This is what obligates them. After they sign it, you [put] this sheet
in a glass and frame, you put it on a wall
where everybody can see it, and every week, for next six months, you ask the group,
“How are we doing with Gossip 2016?” This may seem simple, maybe naive. Too good to be true, right? But it works! I know! And I have over – I don’t have, but it’s over 250 CEOs
in different companies that could verify this. It works. They could also tell you that absenteeism,
sick leave, goes down, and fractionation is minimized, and productivity is increasing. If you take this concept a bit further, you all heard about the discussions
about how young people and children are being bullied at school
and on social media. I think that I, as an adult,
[have] the responsibility to be a good role model. I have to stop talking negatively
about my uncle, about my neighbor, about my colleague,
about my mother-in-law, around the dinner table at home, because, if I don’t do that, I’m actually saying to my children
it’s OK to talk negatively about the third person that’s not there. New consciousness commits. Thank you for your attention. (Applause) (Cheers)

What I use to Film & Edit YouTube Videos | TECH TALK

What I use to Film & Edit YouTube Videos | TECH TALK


Wassup beautiful people, it is your homegirl, Shameless, all up in your living room… Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, wherever you guys are. Let me turn this off. Okay! My first haul video. It’s gonna be about technology, because I love technology. I love electronics–I’m a geek like that. I get a lot of questions about my equipment, what programs I use, my lighting. I have answered all of these in my videos! If you guys just read the description box, I always list everything there. And if it’s not there, then ask me and I’ll answer it in the comments, or I will go back in the description box and fill it in. But for my first haul video, I’m going to discuss what I use for my videos since you guys wanna know. Some things that I buy, that I geek out on… External hard drives. I like to get the lacie hard drives… Mainly because it looks super, duper cute! But it is durable; it has this rubber edging around it. I have about 3 or 4 of these. And this stores all my videos, all my photos; I keep everything on these. So if this corrupts, or I lose it, I am screwed. I have other external hard drives, like the Sea Gate. Sea Gate was really good; I’ve had this for a few years and nothing happened. Sea Gate. Oh, my camera! I film with a Canon 7D. It does not have a flip screen, so I use a remote to focus it. And then I have to run back, press record, and then sit back down, and then that’s how I record my videos. I use… this is my microphone. It’s on this thing right here. Don’t wanna knock anyone out… It’s called an H4N Zoom Mic. I’m not gonna try to speak too loud, but yeah I bought this off of Amazon. No I didn’t, I bought it from BH. But if you guys want links to buy this stuff, I’ll put it in the description box. This light right here, this I use as a fill light. Right now I’m just using daylight. I prefer daylight if I can, but I used to always film at night, like, 12 o’ clock at night. So I would use my ring light. And if I did film in the day and it wasn’t bright enough, I would turn this light on. And again, I have links in the description box for where to buy this stuff. I buy all my stuff usually from Amazon or BH. But yeah, it has a dimmer on the side. You know, put it like halfway or whatever, depending on the lighting situation. So that’s–ahh! Do you boo, I have new beanies! Cop it! It’s Fall, and for all us bald or short-haired girls–or boys–cop it. Link in description box! Okay, what else do I gots?! I edit my videos with a tablet. It comes with a pen and it’s easier on my hand. When I use the mouse, it kind of cramps my hand for a while. This is my case for my memory cards. My Canon uses compact flash cards, and they’re like these big suckers. And I use the 32GB card. I actually got super screwed over on one of my videos; the get ready with me, my first get ready with me. I filmed like, all night, all morning on my 32Gig card, which means it holds a lot of storage. The card corrupted and deleted everything! So all the hours I spent filming were deleted, and I had a video due, I think that day. So I had to re-film everything. And that’s why the video was late. Anyway, too much information. When I edit on location, or at the office–I finally got myself a laptop. I didn’t have one. So I have this one, it’s a Macbook Pro. I have a 16GB memory. And a 2.3 gigahertz Intel Core I7. 5400 RPM. For processing a video as big as I have been recording on this Canon 7D is too slow, so I upgraded to a 7200 RPM. You can install your own RAM. It came with 4GB of RAM. That is not enough to process video, so I bought– I upgraded to a 16GB RAM. And that’s what I use to process. And it costs a lot of frickin’ money, yo! I think I paid in total, with insurance, apple care and all that… $2000, but then I got a discount. so I think I paid $1600. And this is a 15-inch screen. And you guys, I edit with Final Cut Pro. Final Cut Pro–I bought it, I used to pirate all my programs, but… because I use it professionally I thought I should be professional and pay. So that’s what I did. Oh, you guys wanna see my seamless paper? Okay I’ll show you right here. So you guys always ask me about my backdrops. It’s literally a roll of seamless paper. You can buy it at any professional camera store–everyone asks me this in all my videos. You can buy it on Amazon, so if you guys want, I’ll put a link to where you can buy this online. ‘Cause depending on what country–I have no idea what stores you guys have. This is a 4-foot wide seamless paper. I have it in grey, purple, green, pink, yellow. But it’s only $25 bucks. I have a backdrop set, but I don’t use it, I just use tape. I just use painter’s tape, so blue tape. I just tape it on my wall and… that’s it. You could use a backdrop stand but I just think it’s so annoying to set up. Yeah, and it takes up too much room and my place isn’t big like that. Then I have this lighting. I might have to insert a b-roll shot. And I have links to where to buy this stuff on amazon. And if you buy it, I get a little hook up. I get an affiliate, it’s called an affiliate link, which means commission. You know what I’m sayin’? So if you like this stuff and you wanna buy it–this stuff is actually cheap, it’s like $40 bucks. My Amazon store has all this stuff. It usually–when you buy the lighting kit, it usually comes with one bulb, in one socket, and a stand, and an umbrella. But because this isn’t bright enough, like how many watts is this? 45. I upgraded to a 105-watts. So I put it in here. I bought 2 of these. And I think this bulb, this brighther bulb cost… I forget how much–it cost more. But I have 2 of those and I just plug it into this–oh, this 2-headed socket, and it’s like 210-watts. And what I like about this light is it’s the closest thing to daylight at this price, like under $100. So in total, you’ll be spending like $70, if you upgrade to like double-headed socket and stuff. But if this doesn’t make any sense, watch my lighting video. Oh, I have a ring light. I used to film with this all the time, now I’m trying to film when I have daylight. I like daylight, it’s pretty. This is my ring light. I hate it and I love it. I love it because it’s so small that I can travel with this; and I travel a lot so I can put this in my suitcase and not worry about it. And it’s pretty durable, it’s super heavy. It’s actually too heavy for my tripod. And it’s only good if you’re filming in landscape mode. When you go to portrait mode, it’s almost sometimes too heavy depending on the tripod you have. It falls off. One time it fell off and I caught it. Watch my lighting video to see the differences between this, and the daylight balanced, flouresenct bulbs. What else do you guys ask me? Oh! Sometimes I film my voice overs on the voice memo on my iPhone. Open that up, and I just hit record. I’ll probably insert this clip here. This is how it sounds like on my iPhone 4. And this is how it sounds like on my Zoom H4N Mic. My fill light, my hard drives, my laptop, my program Final Cut, editing… For me, I taught myself how to edit through YouTube. I just started using it and any time I had a question, I would just type the question into YouTube. And there are channels that specialize in editing videos. I’ll put links, actually. To those channels. I think that’s it. Oh, my lens. I film with this 50mm/1.8f lens. And then I have a wider lens. This sucker. And it’s an 18-35–18-55 zoom lens. And it’s the lens that came with the camera. And it’s a work horse. I travel with this everywhere and it hasn’t broken. And it’s super cheap so even if it did break, I wouldn’t be to upset. But I do want to get a 24-70mm lens, 2.8f. That’s… I think $1000 that I don’t have. I think that’s pretty much it. I totally forgot! Most important when editing is your headphones. I am using House of Marley. And these are in every video, pretty much. It’s made out of natural and recycled materials. And not to mention, they’re pretty dang fierce, you know what I’m sayin’? Hopefully that helps. If you want to see more techy, geeky videos… I’ll attempt to do video editing… that’s just gonna be so annoying. I just don’t want to deal with the questions that ensue. But I will do one video on how I edit. And I’m also gonna do a video on my voiceover. My voiceover career demo. Back in the day when people used CDs. But a lot more fun videos on the way, my single–cop my beanie, yo! Do you boo! Do you! Support the movement! I have a #beshameless beanie, but that’s all sold out. We’re gonna restock soon. Support! My money is going to supporting the talent that I work with. I feel everyone I work with should be paid fair. I don’t like the idea of free labor.

What to Expect in a Fast Food Interview | Fast Food Interview Questions

What to Expect in a Fast Food Interview | Fast Food Interview Questions


Hey everyone! What is up? My name is
Christian Aguilar. Welcome back to my channel.
Someone requested that I do a video talking about how NOT to pass a
fast-food job interview. Today I am going to show you the red flags that you can
receive during a fast-food job interview. Then I am going to tell you how to deal
with certain situations in a fast-food job interview. I have two and a half
years of experience working in the fast-food industry.
I have passed three fast-food job interviews. I even asked my coworker who is a hiring manager in the fast-food industry to help me out with this video.
Give this video a thumb up if you have ever been through a fast-food job
interview, or comment down below if you are looking forward to a fast-food job
interview. Without further ado, let’s get started. Would you like a glass of water? No thank you. Not accepting the water cup can be a huge red flag because the
employer is being courteous. It’s like if you were going to visit a relative, who
you haven’t seen in a very long time, so they decide to cook you a marvelous
dinner. And you end up saying that you are not hungry. You would probably hurt
your relative. Obviously you’re not going to hurt the fast-food job interviewer’s
feelings, but it could come off as rude. So always accept the water cup if the
employer offers you the drink before the fast-food interview begins. Hi my name is
Christian. Nice to meet you. My name is John. I am going to go get the paperwork,
so hold tight then the interview will start shortly. Okay. Sure, thank you. Wow! It’s been like 10 minutes. I think
it’s okay to check my phone. Oh hey! My boo texted me. *texting* Nothin’ just here at a
fast-food job interview waiting for the employer. He’s taking forever. The second red flag can be when you are checking your phone during a fast-food
job interview. Sometimes employers will tell you, “Your interview will start in a
bit. Let me go get some papers real quick, and then we’ll begin.”
Sometimes the fast-food employer is literally in the back just testing your
patience. Or sometimes the restaurant receives a lot of traffic, so the
employer is probably busy sometimes an employer will have you wait there up to
20 minutes. Whatever you do, do not check your phone because they are watching for
that. I encourage you to just sit there patiently, and do not check your phone
because if you check your phone it probably shows that you would be on your
phone during work hours if you were hired, so do not ever check your phone
during an interview. First things first, tell me about yourself. Well my interests
include photography, acting, dancing. I’m studying Communication Studies, and my career goal is to become a TV host. The next red flag that you can receive during a
fast-food job interview is the lack of eye contact. I don’t expect you to have a
staring contest with your employer because that would be so uncomfortable.
Imagine you were having a conversation with a friend, and they couldn’t keep
their eyes off of you, while they were talking. Yeah! That could be a problem.
Look at your employer naturally. You do not have to look at them the entire time,
but you can look at their eyes. Look to the right. Look to the left. Look down a
bit. Then look up. Just try not to spend more than two seconds looking to the
right or looking to the left. Just make your eye contact very natural. Make sure
majority of your interview, you are making eye contact. Eye contact is very
important because you are having an interpersonal conversation. Imagine you
are having a conversation with someone that you love. For example, your crush. Say, you are pouring your heart out, and they’re not looking at you. That could be
a major problem. If the customer gets upset because the
ice-cream machine isn’t working. How would you deal with this customer? Ummmmm, I don’t know. It’s fine. We will move on to the next question. The next red flag that you can receive is not being able to answer a question. I
understand that anxiety and your nerves can get the best of you. But you have to
try your best to answer a question to the best of your ability. Obviously none
of us are perfect, and none of us really expect what to be asked during a
fast-food job interview. Even if someone has credentials in a certain field.
They’re still not going to know what to expect. They are not going to know what
to expect during their career goal’s interview. The best answer that I would
have gave is, “I am so sorry that our ice cream machine isn’t working. Would you
like to try any of our cold drinks?” Employers are looking for employees that
are willing to apologize to a customer, and they are also looking for someone
who can solve the problem. If the customer gets upset because the
ice-cream machine isn’t working. How would you deal with this customer? I would tell them that I’m sorry, then I would probably… I would also ask if they
would like to try any of our old drinks? The next wave flag that you can
receive is looking at the ceiling or looking at the ground for your answers.
You’re probably thinking, “Whoa! I would never do that.” People who are doing this
are probably not aware that they are doing this. If you were to do this during
your fast-food at job interview, it really shows that you are unprepared. You
really just don’t know the answer to your question. Even if you do not know
the answer to your question, like I mentioned before, answer the question to
the best of your ability. Obviously your answer is not in the ceiling or in the
ground, so don’t do that during a fast-food job interview. Finally, why did you choose to work
here? I need a job. I am just trying to make some money this summer because my mom is getting on my butt, and I don’t know what to do.
Oh my gosh! Finally a red flag that you can receive in a fast-food a job interview
is having a bad reason for applying to that company. A company doesn’t want to
know that you are looking for a job because you need the money. Obviously
you need the money. A company wants to know that you show interest in the
company, so you decided to do some research beforehand. a company wants to know that you want to grow with the company even if it isn’t true. Some of
you are probably thinking, “Who would say that?” It happens. Just make sure that you
don’t answer that question with that answer. If I were asked this question, I
would say something like, “Well I did some research online, and I saw that your
company gives up scholarships to high school seniors, undergraduates, and
students who want to fulfill their GED.” An answer like that will definitely help
you out. That is it. I hope all of you enjoyed
this video. If so, please give this video a thumb up, and if you are looking
forward to a fast-food job interview, make sure that you like this video, so
that you can review, so that you can review these tips and be ready for your
fast-food job interview. This video is not only beneficial for people who
want to work in the fast-food industry. It is also beneficial for people who
want to work in retail or the field that you are studying for. Comment down below any other videos that you want to see that are related to interviews and
Business Communication. If you aren’t already, please subscribe to my channel
down below. I have a self-help and lifestyle channel. I publish a new video
every weekend. Nonetheless, see y’all later.

We Got A Personal Assistant For A Week • Ladylike

We Got A Personal Assistant For A Week • Ladylike


– Imagine if someone could just take all the worst parts of being an adult and make them go away, like magic. That’s what I imagine it’s like to be rich enough to afford a personal assistant– someone whose entire job is to attend to your every need. But once we get the extra help, will we actually be able to let go and be happier? – Yes. – Yes. – It’s the Ladylike Show, and we’re gonna have personal assistants for a week. (energetic jazz music) So, the reason why this is on my bucket list is because I am actually kind of a mess. – [Woman] My god, girl needs help. – There are so many things in my life I have not gotten done, and I also got lists from all the girls, and there are so many things that they need done, too. And we talk all the time about what we might be able to do if we just had, like, more brain space. So, I thought, let’s get some extra brains in here! ^- My name’s Tori Campbell. ^I’ve been an assistant on and off for about four years. I started with a celebrity personal trainer. – My name is Kaycie. I’ve been an assistant, in some capacity, for about 12, 13 years, and the last three and a half, four years, I have been a celebrity assistant. – I think the girls are going to enjoy having people help them out. – So excited. – Incredibly. – I can’t wait. – I’m… pumped. – I’ve wanted this my entire life. – But I also think there is a lot of work that goes into delegating. – Here’s the thing: I feel a little guilty about this, ’cause I’ve been an assistant before to some very demanding people, so I have a lot of guilt about asking, like, “pick up my dry cleaning.” – I mean, I love absolving myself from responsibility, so I am gonna handle it super well. – Another thing that we’re all gonna have, if someone wants to reach us, they’re going to need to talk to our assistant first. – How do I get all my ex-boyfriends to call me in this week, so they have to talk to my assistant? ^- What’s the worst thing you’ve ^ever had to do as a personal assistant? – Ah, well, I’d love to tell you, but I have signed many non-disclosure agreements. – Our lips are sealed. – I know, I’ve pretty much done everything, working with the people that I’ve worked with, and I can’t imagine it’ll be any worse. – Yep. – Are y’all ready to meet the girls? – Yeah. – Let’s do it. – All right. Let’s bring ’em in. – ‘Cause here we are! – Devin brought a clipboard. – You said, have a list, and I said, okay, here’s my clipboard. – I think Chantel wants to start, ’cause Chantel has a list the size of the sun. – Shall we? (laughter) Okay. I mean, basically, it’s just, I need many things scheduled. ^’Cause I still have my wisdom teeth. ^I also have bunions. ^You also might need to schedule something with my mom; ^we file our taxes together. – So, what, you need your bunions scheduled? – Yeah, to get shaved off. – To get more. (laughter) Get more added. ^- Well, I wanna troll my boyfriend. ^- On it. ^- Yeah, I need you to look up dogs within my criterias, like puppies on PetFinder, and then email him a list every morning, and cc me. – Okay. (laughs) – Every morning? – My big things this week are, ^I need some Instagrams taken. ^- Oh, can I have some of that, too? ^- I would like that, too. ^- I’ll take a serving of that. ^- Also, I need someone to help me clean out my car. (dramatic operatic music) – I just need a lot of reminders throughout the day, like, today is literally my cousin’s birthday, ^so I need, just remind me, call your cousin. ^- Call your cousin. ^- Okay, I’ll do that later. ^Thank you. ^- They’re on it! – Do you mind, remind me again? – So for me, I’ve been having issues with thieves in the office. They’ve been stealing my mug. ^(somber chime) – Let’s not laugh, this is real. – This is what happens: so, I’m trying to do my part. I’m trying to save the environment, which is why I bring in glass mugs, so I’m not using paper cups for coffee in the morning. – But… – You know… (all laugh) – I also have a FixIt ticket that I got in Burbank. I could mail it in. I just kinda forgot what exactly I need to mail it with. – Number one thing for me, is I need to find a chiropractor. I went to a chiropractor when I first moved to LA, and the guy was creepy, so someone who’s not creepy and who takes my insurance. – Okay, so I wanna say, thank you so much. I’m really excited about this. I need clothing picked up from the tailor. My cat, Roberta, needs to get her nails clipped. – Can someone else do your smog check for you? – Yeah. – Okay, I need someone to do my smog check for me, and to send off my car registration. – I’d love some help, basically selling this old air-conditioner I have. If it sells, awesome. If it doesn’t sell, we could maybe see if anybody wants it for free. – So, I want a big dog, so it has to be a puppy that’s a big dog, and that’s a lady, ’cause Pat wants a girl dog. – And then, once we find my mug, I would love for you to order a custom mug for me. – Okay. – Because, I’m not respected in these streets. – Okay, so how do you want to divvy this up? You wanna just split it in half? – Yeah, that might make sense. And the two tickets, we should do immediately. – Yeah, for sure. – I’m gonna dig for my ticket. Ah ha! What’s the date? Oh, (bleep), this is due in two days! – Perfect, and then I’m being asked by Kate why you have not re-tweeted her Michael Phelps tweet. It’s important and very time-sensitive. – Okay, this is gonna be a week. (laughs) – Tell her I did not see her Michael Phelps tweet. – [Kaycie] Okay. – Jumping on Twitter now. – Got it. – Okay, thank you. – Happy, Kate? – I’m sorry. I’m sorry, you’re gonna have to go through my assistants first. (Devin laughs) – I’ve been played. It’s a pleasure to meet you. – Pleasure. You here to see Devin? – I’m so happy that you’re here. Yes. I’m here for Devin. – Okay, let me see if she’s available. – You did just tell me that she was available on Slack. I know, but I’m just making sure. – Oh, this is what Devin just said, that she’s not available. – She’s a little busy right now. If you could come back in five minutes, she’ll be available. – I’m just kidding, I’m trolling you, I’m trolling you. – Oh, I didn’t know that. – I can hear Kaycie calling about my ticket. What a kind woman to be calling a government agency. That takes a lot of… I wouldn’t even do that for a best friend. – Okay, I keep finding more things. – [Kaycie] Okay. – So, I actually got caught in the rain when I had this bag, and it was serving as my umbrella. – [Tori] Hey Kristen, you have time to do some Instagrams? – Yeah, I do. – [Tori] Let’s go. – Hey, Kristen, I thought of one other random thing. – Well don’t ask me. – Hi, Tori. – [Tori] Hi. (jazz music) – [Tori] That’s cute. (jazz music) – Oh my God, that’s so cute. – You have so much content now. ^- I know I do! These are really good. I actually get really stressed out. What?! This took us like five minutes and we got it. – Yeah, we got it. – It took my husband the better part of half an hour to get one photo. – I got my first email from Tori, and she has apparently scheduled my chiropractic appointment for this Wednesday, at 4:30. ^I’m finally gonna get rid of these headaches that I’ve been having. Way to go, Tori. Wow. – All right, y’all. We got emails. – [Devin] An end of the day report. – Oh my God, this is so official. So, I had a massage booked for me. Tori booked air travel for me. She also bought me a makeup organizer. – Whoa. – And Kaycie also looked into how I can pay my ticket. She called the government for me. No one has ever called the government for me. – You should marry her. – I feel like, instead of planning a wedding, little girls need to be planning when they get assistants in their lives, ’cause this is, legit, a life goal. – I feel like we all have errands, like I have errands, Fred has… Yeah, Fred, you’ve got a lot of errands. – I have so many errands. – So today was a big day for Chantel, and tomorrow is going to be a bigger day for all of us. – I love today. ^- So it is 10:45 at night, and I was laying in bed, and realized that I need to have one of them call my Geico car insurance company tomorrow and take care of a little bit of business, so I’m back up and I’m sending them an email, so I don’t forget about it tomorrow. (warm chimes) ^- (singing) The puppy newsletter’s here. ^- What? ^- Yes. – Tori sent it out, and she is here. – Oh my god, look at these baby, wait, hold on, look at the subject. – It’s “Puppy Newsletter: Not Junk, Patrick.” He responded actually. – Wait, he did? – Hello everyone, glad that you all get to share the puppy cuteness. Thanks Tori. Bowie is absolutely adorable. – Aww. I feel like this is the type of trolling that truly is a luxury. – It is a luxury. – This is a luxurious level of trolling that we are indulging in right now. – So I have my old laptop here. This thing is like a brick. Jern, hold this thing. – Ooh. – That thing is nine years old. We’re gonna see if it turns on today. If it turns on, then I’m gonna get to pull some old, probably embarrassing music videos that I’ve edited on it. – Chantel, when you turn it, you can, ow! (bleep)
Ow! – Welcome to my car! ^Heeeyy. – All right. – Yeah. – There’s a veil. I think there’s a wedding veil in there somewhere. So we’re gonna do like clothes we’re gonna dry clean,` and then clothes we’re gonna donate, and then actual garbage. My car is just kind of like full of my job stuff. But the reason why I never clean it out is because I keep getting rewarded for it not being clean. ‘Cause whenever I need clothes, the clothes are right there. – [Tori] What does your trunk look like? – Let’s not talk about my trunk. – I’m assuming that these are trash. – Laundry, I have a lot of laundry. Ooh, I’ve been looking for this tank top. Oh, that’s hundred percent laundry. Oh, I just pulled something so hard, the car seat moved back. If I haven’t seen the wrapped food item in months, I probably don’t want it. (Kaycie laughs)
I’m guessing. Okay, so I bought a box for leaf bags, ’cause I thought, I’m gonna clean out my car every so often, and then I lost the box of leaf bags somewhere in the car. – Did you find any food in there, ’cause I’m hungry. – I found some bread and some french fries, but they were all really hard, so I don’t think you want ’em. (Chantel laughs) – [Jen] You guys forget how much I love hard bread. – [Tori] Ooh! – [Jen] What is that? – Here you go. – I thought it was something different. – I did, too. – It’s weird just letting people do things. Like, it’s really bizarre just being like, this is out of my hands now. I feel like a (bleep). Look how beautiful! ^(chime) ^- You can see the back seat. – [Kristen] We just gotta vacuum it now. – [Tori] You can have friends back here now. – What happened? What successful thing just happened? – We just sold the A/C unit for what you were asking for it. – [Jen] Wow.
Incredible. – [Kaycie] Yeah. – [Jen] No! – [Kaycie] You got it? – [Jen] Under the bottom, maybe? – [Kristen] See, Jen, you would never have been able to do this on your own; you would always need help. – Uh-huh. – [Kaycie] Wow, not bad. – [Jen] And let me get you the hose. This is the most important part, otherwise you’ll get carbon monoxide poisoning. – [Kristen] No one wants that. – Yeah, there’s gotta be a way for the carbon monoxide to get out of your house… (Kristen laughs) and into the environment with all the nature. – I am officially off to my chiropractic appointment that Tori booked for me. Watch this, it’s crazy. ^It’s electric stim. (whispering) I’m not doing that. I’m not doing that. – Kaycie is working on transferring over all of my college laptop stuff onto my hard drive, but there are a few problems. – So we had to get a new hard drive. I’m now transferring the files that she needed from the computer, then I have to transfer (sped-up cassette sound), and then transfer everything back to it. We’ll be here for another few days. – I’m embarrassed. ^- (whispering) I am a changed woman. – Yeah, so we have my big box of shit that was from when we moved offices back in October. The goal is to get everything out of this box and into its rightful place. So we can just get started, and going through some stuff that needs to be thrown out. Look at that.
Useful. You can’t even tell that it used to be a bird, except for the feet. Oh, those are my Oishi socks. Delicious. I’m gonna keep them. This is a notebook someone got me. These are, wow, I have so many socks! These are cute. Do you want $25 off your next $100 Torrid purchase? ^- When does that expire? – 2016. And actually, I’m not sure if this is ever going home. This bag might live here, but it takes up a lot less space than the box. – No, you’re taking it home tonight. – [Kristen] Yeah, you’re taking it home, Jen. – Am I gonna take it home? We’ll see. I’m sorry you had to do that; ^I could have easily done that on my own. ^- It’s fine.
That’s what I’m here for. – What an angel. – [Kristen] You did it. – [Jen] Here you go, Chantel. – I think with everyone, just getting the information that we need has been a little hard. – Yeah. – Insurance information, logins. – We should have done that, shouldn’t we? – Yeah, so I usually just have a document to go to to reference, and I don’t have to bother them with those questions. – [Devin] Wow! – [Kaycie] When you start somewhere, you create like a whole spreadsheet that’s like a Bible of sorts, like someone’s desk Bible. – Where’s my Bible? – Yeah, I got your ticket extended, and, so this way you can pay it and avoid the $900 fee, as well as jail time if you didn’t show up to court. – Jail time? – To fight it. – [Kristen] Wait, so they kept you… – You kept me out of jail! – If you didn’t show up in two days, – (bleep), I didn’t know that! – And just let it pass, you would have had a bench warrant for your arrest. – I got some text messages from you. – Yes. – It’s gonna be good. – Custom mug. – I am excited. I couldn’t have chosen a better photo. – [Tori] Yeah. I died. – How’d you find that? Where’d you find it? – [Tori] I just Googled you, girl. – Now, I’m really happy that we go the new mug. Have we found the culprit? – We don’t know what we’re looking for. – No, because you haven’t given us a picture of the old one yet. We keep asking you for a photo. – I missed that. – Kaycie and Tori said that they called my mom, Sandy, to schedule a time for us to do our taxes together, and I realized, I didn’t tell Sandy anything that was happening this week. Hey, mom. FYI, Ladylike is having personal assistants this week, so they reached out to you to schedule a time for us to do our taxes. And she said, “I don’t understand. ^”Should we schedule our taxes this Saturday?” ^(buzzer sound) ^- [Kristen] Sandy is not on board. – She’s like, don’t give me the run-around, just say yes or no right now. ^- [Kristen] Just let Kaycie respond to her. ^See what she does. – I evaded jail for my ticket, will I evade jail for taxes? Stay tuned! ^- So I just got to work and people ^have been coming up to me and been asking if I found my mug yet, so I’m trying to figure out… I’ve heard that there are signs that I’ll just have to find. (gasps) Look at the sign, look at the sign they made. – [Freddie] He he he he he. So good. That’s what I’m talkin’ about. All right, so, today’s the day. – Yep. – The word is already out. – People are scared. – People are scared. – People are nervous. – People are nervous. – What’s gonna happen? – This is a great mug. I like it a lot. It was a gift and I want my gift back. Okay, first of all, I’ve never seen this many mugs in this cabinet ever in my life. So, I’m wondering if people were like, uh oh, what mugs do I have at my desk that don’t belong to me? Maybe I’ll just return them to the kitchen just so I’m off the hook. That’s what I’m feeling. – [Kristen] So, really, this had a positive impact. – I think this is having a positive overall impact for everyone who has been affected by missing mugs. – I had a Reading Rainbow mug. You can’t buy that thing, okay. You gotta donate to Kickstarter to get that, and they stole it, and to this day, I haven’t found it. – How long ago did your Reading Rainbow mug go missing? – [Man] About a month ago. And I looked for two weeks. Heartbroken.
– It’s upsetting. – Have you seen this mug? ^- I have not. – Damn. – Have you tried checking the shooting spaces. They also have a little side kitchen that has a dishwasher. I didn’t check there. Should we also check lex? – And props? – Ooh. Ooh, if my mug is in props… – Props. – [Kristen] Maybe y’all should split up. – I bet it is. – Nothin’. There’s a mug. We got the Reading Rainbow. – Ooh. – Is someone missing a Reading Rainbow mug? – Holy, are you? Wild. – [Woman] Oh my God! You’ve been looking for it everywhere! – [Kristen] It was on the Ladylike stage. – It was on what stage? – [Kristen] It was on the Ladylike stage. – No one knows how my mug got to the stage? – [Kristen] No. (laughs)
No. – Okay.
All right, um. I’m gonna need a minute. – So, no luck. These ladies, they were committed. We found other people’s mugs. – We did. We found her mug. – This is Mia’s mug! – It’s all right. We’ll keep an eye out, investigation is still continuing. The good thing is, I do have my own personal mug coming next week. – I’m super excited. – Has my face on it. ^Lo and behold, look what arrived in the mail. (joyful choir singing) My personalized mug, because I deserve a mug that’s mine, all mine. ^- Oh my God, it’s Friday. ^It’s our last day. I’m out of things. Y’all. We gotta come up with more things. – I have a phone call with Sandy. – Oh, yes, we do have to talk to Sandy. – I will get her on the phone. – Wait, don’t you have the boxes under your desk to go through, too? – Uh, they’re over there now. So they’re not bothering me anymore. – So you just moved them. Okay, so, you didn’t go through them, you just relocated them to Devin’s desk. (Kristen laughs) Okay, so we do have stuff, there is stuff to do. – I am getting ready to call Chantel’s mom, Sandy. She’s been, what seems to be dodging my phone calls. (phone ringing) ^Hi, is this Sandy? – Hi, Sandy. My name is Kaycie. I’m Chantel’s assistant for the day. – [Kristen] Okay, how was talking to Sandy? – It was lovely. We figured it out. Every weekend she wanted, her daughter could not do. So we’ve now settled to see if they’re available, and they’re gonna do it tomorrow. Hope she doesn’t have plans tonight. The week’s been really good. Everyone was super nice. We had a lot of stuff that we got to do. Compared to my usual assistant jobs, this was a lot less hectic. Everyone was so scared that they were, like, being mean to us by throwing their stuff on us. – And they kept apologizing. – Yeah. – Like I’m really sorry I’m making you do this right now, but… – It’s raining again today, and I’m sending poor Tori to get my oil changed. I hate this. – So that’s different than most of my assistant jobs. – Oh my gosh, guys. What a week to be alive! – Yeah. – We did it. – What a week. – They did it. – You killed it. – I feel like my quality of life has improved quite a bit. – So what were kind of the big, fun takeaways from this week? – I got a lot of headaches taken care of this week. – I went to a chiropractor who literally changed the way I stand, so that was like such a big win for me, so thank you. – Yay. – I think the low point for me is I felt very guilty asking you two to do some things, because I just had weird experiences being an assistant before. – I feel like I never quite go the hang of just letting go. But.. – You don’t say. – I’ve started to realize that sometimes when there’s a task I don’t want to do, just even having to do barely a step to get it started will be enough for me to be like, I don’t need it! Which is a problem. – My big triumph, which is really Kaycie’s big triumph, was getting all the old stuff off of my old laptop and putting that onto a hard drive, and then wiping that laptop, and donating it. I was dreading it, which is why it’s just been sitting on my desk for two years. – She saved you from being arrested. – She also saved me… – From her bench warrant. – …from that. – Like, when I was planning this, and I saw everyone’s lists, I first thought, this is too much. And then, you guys were done by Thursday afternoon. In my mind, all of my tasks feel like they take days. – [Jen] Yeah. – [Chantal] Yeah. – [Kristen] But they actually don’t. – [Kaycie] It’s just, people put ’em off, and put ’em off, and it takes… – Like, when we saw the lists, we were like, this is gonna be so easy.
– So easy. – The one downside is, y’all are leaving, and next week, we’re gonna have to talk to all the people again. ‘Cause you acted as a beautiful buffer between us and the rest of Buzzfeed. – Nobody talked to us this week! – [Chantal] How was this week for you guys? – Everyone was really nice. No one was a pain in the ass. We can definitely tell who would be great at having an assistant. – Oh, yeah. – You, probably, too. – What does that mean? – It would take a little longer for y’all to, like, get used to it, but you guys were like, do this, do this, do this. – We’re ready. – I have things! – I don’t trust anyone. Having personal assistants for a week. – Lady-tested. – Lady got shit done. – Woo! – Thank you! – Thank you so much! ^- So, I went to go wash my fork, and saw this in the dish. (somber chime) ^- Show her the worst part. ^- It has been used. ^- Recently. – This is… I don’t even know what to say. ^- Someone used it today. ^- And there was food in it. (upbeat music)

Impractical Jokers – Sal: Lap Pool Photographer (Punishment) | truTV


Well Sal’s our big loser And we are here
in Astoria Sports Complex who, by happenstance, are looking to update
their website. Right, so of course they’re
gonna need new photos. And where better
to start than their
water aerobics class. Are you ready for this? I’m snapping photos for this? You’re the photographer.
Yeah. You’re the photographer. Wait, what the [Bleep]
are you talking about? [ Laughter ] What the [Bleep]
Are you saying that… Yo, now I’m getting
all this in my head now. Now he gets it. Inhale as you expand up, and exhale. Q: So, this is a real
water aerobics class. Joe: Yes. The instructor
is in on it. These people? Victims. Victims. Murr: Who, by the way, have been told to ignore the photographer. Q: Here he comes now.
Look at this! Here he is. [ Laughter ] Q: Oh, my God! My favorite part is that Sal
had to wear a shirt so we can hide
all the electronics. Sal, show us all the electronics
in your back. Look at that! [ Laughter ] He looks like
the hunchback of Best Buy. Lean to take a picture
of this instructor, and fall into the pool. Woman: Really push down.
Push down underneath you. Q: There he goes. There he goes. There he goes. Joe: He can’t do it! He can’t do it! You got to lean closer,
lean closer. Just use the water. Sal: Whoopsie. [ Laughter ] How you doing, sir?
Sorry I crashed. He had the presence of mind to say, “Whoopsie”
before he hit the water. Woman: And press back. I want a little action
in this one, so I’m just gonna
splash some water up in front of the camera. Woman:
Remember to lift tall. [ Laughter ] Sal laughing. He’s got to go underwater. [ Laughter ] Sal, bounce and sink. ♪♪ Woman: Really good, guys. And now flip quick
behind you. Selfie with
this guy behind you. Nice. Working those
outer thighs… [ Laughter ] Q: Sal, go underwater,
emerge too close to people, and take their photo
like right in their face. [ Laughter ] Sal, this guy’s got a really
nice bathing suit, right? Q: He does. Don’t do it to me, Joe. Yeah, maybe we should get
a close up of the bathing suit? Sal: Oh, man. [ Laughter ] Q: Here we go. Oh, my… [ Laughter ] Stop!
He’s trying to get him. Murr: Look at the look
this guy just shot him. Keep going, keep going. Oh, my God.
Another one. Great trunks. [ Laughter ] Joe: He has a natural retreat. Sal, see that guy
in the front there? Get as close
as you can to him. Lock eyes with him,
and then just sink underwater. Joe: Here he goes. -Look at him, look at him.
-Lock eyes. -Get creepy, get creepy. -Lock eyes. [ Laughter ] Murr: Take it, take it! [ Laughter ] Nice. [ Laughter ] Sal, go stand
next to the instructor. Go to take a picture
over her shoulder. Woman: Good. All right. Bring your arms up. Arms way up in the air, go “Yikers!” and fall into the pool. Sal:
Raise them nice and tall. “Yikers!” [ Laughter ] Q: Well done, gentlemen. Sal: Sorry. Well done. Cannonball, fellas. Cannonball. I feel like such an idiot
right now.
