Never knew this was a really big thing on youtube. The video takes the piss out of the whole thing.

If you're wondering what it is:

or just watch the video.

Yeah I get the whole review thing but not why you'd want to see someone take something out of a box.

i think that anyone who has been a PC system builder will tell you that unboxing is a chore, not an amazing experience

Yeah, I always hate unboxing videos. I don't get the fascination. People obviously watch them, because people keep making them.

What's annoying is when they call it a review, then it's just them taking something out of a box... That is NOT a review.

Hahaha, hi 5!

Unboxing videos are ridiculous, but I have flicked through the odd one just to see what the DC adapter looked like, or what shape a certain attachment was if it wasn't clear on the spec.

Wow, that crazy German with the Leica - that is just nuts. I fast-forwarded a minute and nothing in the video had moved, hahaha.

Heh, it's probably a curiousity thing for people watching & seeing what's inside those boxes at the store without actually having to buy the box. They're pretty fucking boring though, you're not going to get too many surprises out of a retail box.
"Here we have a molex power connector and here's a HDMI cable, and oh wow a fucking translucent green dragon egg!"

It's a shame that while there are people are out there reading essentially a bill of materials as if it were a novel they're missing out on the joy of reading actual novels.

Unless it's your own rig, which you decided 2xsli cards, a 1000watt psu, 450 dollar motherboard, hosting a cpu twice as much. You held back though, you can later on get the third sli if you feel the need for more power.

The only better pleasure than unboxing is benchmarking. Oh god i can't wait to see my score!

Well really the truth is somewhere between. If the components are cheap and boring and mass, then you're going to be bored. If it's something you spent quite a bit of time saving for, then you deserve to at least enjoy the pointless exercise of unboxing it yourself.

It's kind of like christmas, except, it's stuff you actually want!

When you buy new things don't you generally wanna open them as fast as possible? Now set up camera and stuff to uploads a vid of you taking it out of the box on the nets?

I know when I get boxes, even big packages for my store, I wanna open it as fast as possible to see all the purty things inside!

I'll do an unboxing video when I get my copy of Mortal Kombat. I'll read the back of the case then I'll open it and be all "And as you can see, this is the game disc, and heres the instruction manual", then I might flick through the manual and read some of that out loud too. It'll be awesome.

Unboxing is a bit like Hentai - I just don't see the need to go that far.

You know, I was joking, about an unboxing video for a game, but fuck me if some douchebag hasn't actually gone and done it for real. Five minutes of him OPENING A GAME CASE. What in the shit.
