Are these guys serious!?
Hello mates! Im a long time reader first time writer for this 'ol board and wanted to say hello first and foremost.
Now that all the traditional formalities are laid to rest, look what the bloody hell I found today. I was searching for random buggers on youtube and came across a few Americans who made a little video about a sport I've been playing since I was a little one.
Before I serve the link to you all, I thought this was rather clever for a Yankee's take on it.
Have a laugh and give these wankers a little taste of what we call "Racquet time"

OMFG!! that cant be serious, but that was the funniest video ive seen in a long time!!! Heres a quote "Badmin is like tennis, except you dont have to be as good." They really mock badminton which is annoying and funny at the same time...

I want to punch them in their bloddy face, but god damnit I couldnt aim straight from laughing.

let me say this, losers alway make fun of things which losers know they can't achieve or obtain with their own natural ability. That's why they are losers.

thats just a sarcastic joke on badminton, I hate it

Heh the first comment of the video on the youtube webby tells it everything. Well I guess there are people stupid enough that their brains can't comprehend the very basic nature of this noble sport.

I found it funny, but that might have been because I was trying so hard to figure out whether they were serious or not. Is it taking off the way most Americans see badminton? Or do they really think that that is all there is to badminton? I just can't tell! If they were serious then yeah... well that video goes quite well with the other thread about people's misconceptions about badminton.

So I see some of you have a sense of humor, while others might have a little more to be desired.
I wouldnt train anyone with that video, but after a looooong game I'd love to show this to some of my friends with a nice Guiness.
Those damn Americans. Hahaha.

I find the video to be excellent for badminton. The central message of the video was:
Play SAFE, play RIGHT, and play FUN. Only if your coach had tought you these, you would have became a much better and rounded player by now.
The video clearly illustrates that if you didn't play safe, right, and fun, you would have ended up rolling on the ground with a face full of sand, and a broken racket. On the other hand, if you did play safe, right, and fun, your would have became the champion of all countries, all states, and all tournaments, and you would also get to wear a cool pair of sun glasses.
These americans may not be very good at taking over the world through invasions, they certainly know a thing or two about good badminton.

wow im really surprised at how some people are taking the video. it was quite obviously a joke and i really dont think people should be taking it so personally as an attack against badminton
02-25-2007, 03:24 PM #16
heh, thats funny. Sorta.

2 parts that annoyed me a lot:
1. They can't say badminton right... Bad minton.
2. That kid says "badminton is just like tennis except you don't need to be as good." I'm gonna kill this guy -_-+
