CTV National News Unboxing Interview

Last Friday afternoon the Alberta Bureau Chief for CTV News, Janet Dirks, came with a cameraman to shoot a story about the unboxing videos that I do. Here’s how it turned out…

The interview aired on Sunday night on the CTV National News, but I managed to bungle the recording settings and didn’t snag it. It aired again today at noon, so that’s the one I recorded. So how did I feel about this interview? All in all, quite good – especially since I was able to explain that the term “geek porn” is an inside geek joke. I appreciated the fact that the piece was well-researched; they even found one of the instances when I was genuinely shocked at what I found inside a box (the 1:15 mark). I think this should pretty much wrap up this media storm about unboxing videos – it’s been quite a ride! Ironically, I’ve been so focused on all this media coverage of my unboxing videos that I haven’t done an unboxing video in about three weeks. Time to get back to it!

    Much better than the CBC interview!
    Thank you CTV for taking the time to do your research and doing a much more professional piece.

  • Geek Porn could also easily describe your table of tech goodies over there! And on a side note, the term “calgarian”, while being a normal pluralization, sounds really creepy (i.e. “Captain, the Calgarians are decloaking and powering up weapons”).

  • Jon,
    If Calgarians had awesome alien technology, it would be some form of self-powered underwear that kept us warm in the cold winter months. 😉 And no, long underwear doesn’t count…

    So I finally registered (some time back) and my first post isn’t anything special, except to say that you meant “three months” in the last paragraph, right?

  • yslee,
    I meant to write three weeks actually – thanks for catching that!
