You have probably seen these commercials. They are from 2011.



This one actually made me laugh. By far not the worst marketing video ever, but goodness, what do they think? Oh yeah, gonna sell more scopes by making ourselves look like complete idiots who can barely put together a video.

That was just dreadful. I will take a dozen stoned LeCroy dudes over this horrible fart.

omfg hhahaha what the hell fried your sense of humor

half of silicon valley probably dropped mad acid

The concept was good. The execution was an insult to good concepts everywhere.

And we thought the Rigol ones were bad. 1:11 minutes of pure cringe. BTW, anyone happen to have the video where the Agilent Land Cruiser runs over the Tek?




Well it's American. In general Americans aren't funny; they lack wit and think that they can compensate by just acting retarded.
Mind you British humor isn't what it used to be either.

Bzzzzt. No longer care, over this forum shit.........ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Of course we aren't funny. Who needs wit when you have freedom?

Really? Real freedom for me is being independent but in the US 80% of the people in the nation only have 7% of the nations wealth, how free are they really?
Political freedom: two parties to choose from, really? Two?
Freedom of speech: after 911 put anything bad on the internet and the doorbell rings  ;)
Don't get me wrong I loved the US when I visited in the 80's and 90's, and there probably are still lots of nice places there. But it is so sad that the whole country changed in to paranoia and scared people after 911, I would not like to live there now, and really hope your country gets back the joy, humour and self confidence it needs.

Speaking as one of those Brits who aren't as funny as they used to be, who needs either wit or freedom when you can have a nice cup of tea?

That video told me nothing about the scope. So it has a pretty display. Whopptie Freaking Do! I can zoom in and look at anything on any cheap ass digital scope. Its all about the samples, ADC, and noise.. Yes, they think we are all idiots with lots of cash to spend on their crap. Give one to Dave. Let him sort it out and tell us what to think. hahahaha  :clap:

Same here. My wife wants to go but I don't. Filling in endless forms? Bent over and have some TSA guy probe....? Sign away all your rights?  :wtf: Hell no! There a lots of other places I can spend my money.

7 Year ago I when to the US for a special flight training, it is cheaper than in Europe.

On the immigration check, the lady imigration officer seriously ask me “I hope you have no intention to crash your aircraft in one of our buildings”, was a special visa for flying training, she knew why I was visiting the Unites States, normally I don’t need a visa but for flying purpose yes and finger print record and pictures in the police station just like a criminal on arrival.

I had to go through the naked body shit once. I like this video

I'm not saying we should kill all stupid people. I'm just saying that we should remove all product safety labels and let natural selection do its work.
