training video

Subject: Fw: The Entabulator Many years ago.... Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty automatic transmission business. They were getting ready to tape their first introductory video. As a warm up, the stage crew began what has become a legend within the training industry. This man should have won an academy award for his performance. Keep in mind, this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down. He had no script! This was a rehearsal for camera, lighting and stage crew. This video is still utilized as a training aide for incoming Congressmen, lawyers, and White House administrators. Enjoy!!

If you have a black light hanging around the house, shine it on a flower and see how a bee sees this flower. It's like a landing strip for planes.
