Farewell to you, farewell to you
The charming one who dwells in the shaded bowers
One fond embrace,
‘Ere I depart
Until we meet again

Cactus Jack promo “Professional Wrestling Will Never be Respected”

One of the best promos given by a man who has given a long list of great promos. I particularly like this one because of the introductory exploration of how little people respect wrestling in spite of all the sacrifices made by the talent.

Cactus Jack was the villain in this feud, trying to convince the beloved Tommy Dreamer to abandon the bloodthirsty ECW fans in favor of the financial security afforded by Ted Turner’s WCW. Cactus Jack was a man who abandoned a $100,000 contract in favor of greater creative control in smaller venues and for smaller paychecks, and he desperately wanted to save young upstart Tommy Dreamer from making the mistake he had. As with a great many wrestling feuds, the villain makes a great deal more sense logically than the hero, and is afforded much more substance for their interviews. 

Mick Foley in this promo gives an improvised performance with masterful wordplay, gestures, inflection, timing, and facial expressions that many actors in major productions couldn’t match with a month to rehearse. Shit like this is why I love wrestling, and why the talking is just as important as the in-ring product. Even if you’re not one for pro wrestling, give this a watch and you’ll come out with a new found appreciation for it. 

Watch this. Seriously. Watch this.

The Game Cube can be hit with a sledgehammer and work just fine. The Nintendo DS was specifically designed to be able to survive a 1.5 meter (five foot) drop onto solid concrete without breaking, and one of the company’s bigwigs wouldn’t let it go past the design phase until the design team could guarantee it could survive the drop at least 10 times. In fact, Nintendo products have such a reputation for being impossible to break through normal means that they spawned the term “Nintendium”—an all-purpose phrase given to pieces of technology that survive extreme punishment. For example, take the Gulf War Game Boy, an original Game Boy console that survived having a freaking bomb dropped on it.

Nintendo never advertises their products as being durable, they don’t brag about their Game Boys being bomb-proof or their consoles being tough enough to survive being hit by a car. They just expect their customers to be human and include features to prepare for that humanity. While other companies decide that they’re nice by including a cover to protect the screen of the $600 phone you just bought in case you drop it, Nintendo just builds a device that can survive being dropped in the first place and doesn’t make a big deal about it. Because that’s how a real company does business.
