This is What Happens When You Ask a 12 Year Old to Help With a Review

9:02 AM


So as I posted last night, we were given the opportunity to review the BlackBerry Playbook. I wanted to discuss how great it is at helping students stay organized and do better in school, but didn't just want to type out the boring facts. Cue my 12 year old. He fancies himself an actor and is even in drama this year. Oh boy. It was quite an experience trying to have him do a video review of the PlayBook. Did you know boys can giggle just like girls?

He started out by staring at the screen for like 5 minutes and then he turns to be and says "I forgot my lines." What lines kid? There are no lines. So I tell him "Just talk about how you use it and what you like about it." We get through one take and it is pretty good, except he keeps calling the thing the "My Tab." Well, since we have been using the PlayBook for weeks and I don't even know what a My Tab is, that could be a problem.

So we go to start the second take and right before the camera turns on, he starts snorting like a pig to clear his throat. I said something about it and this is what ensued. Yes, I did make it worse by snorting on purpose and specifically asking him about the "my tab". If you listen, you can hear all the boys cracking up in the background.
