He's talking about the guitars so I guess it's "off topic." Make sure closed captioning is on.

George, for some reason, embedding it here doesn't show the CC button (at least not in Firefox). You need to watch it on YouTube and the CC will be turned on.

Here's the original Risitas video that it's based on. He's Spanish (Andalusian), not Mexican.

Well, that fell flat! Besides the Gibson content, I also found it funny to see another video clip getting the "Hitler finds out" treatment. Hide glue!

I'm glad you clicked through to the subtitles. When he mentioned Henry I snorted so loud my kid gave me a funny look.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one to find that hilarious. I'm in a Les Paul group on Facebook, and it's interesting to see what (mostly) guitarists think of Henry's tenure. And their devotion (obsession) to Gibsons seems very familiar to me.

As a biggie Gretsch fan, there are times when I'm grateful that Gretsch is owned by Fender.

Just sayin'.   ;)   ;)   ;)

The strange case of Henry J. & Mr. Hide ...

It ain't no country until Dave sez it is!
