Thanks for watching everyone! I don't usually do requests as I have more video ideas than I have time to make usually, but I'm curious... what kind of videos would you like to see?

This was great! I really dig video essays, and have watched yours for a long time, and this is really nice to see something that doesn't have to do with movies/tvshows. Keep it up, sprinkling this kind of stuff in, is 100% awesome.

Marriott hotels always have a copy of my favorite fan fiction, The Book of Mormon, in addition to the Holy Bible. They win the literature amenities
award.

How in the hell did you make a video about hotels fighting with each other over beds and soap interesting?

In hotels I've stayed at recently, I've seen an egregious trend of tacking an additional "amenities fee" on top of the price of the room. The rooms aren't cheaper, they're just literally raising the price to get you to pay for the same amenities a second time. If that wasn't bad enough, some amenities fees go towards "minibar credit" allowing you to take things from the minibar "for free" up to a certain amount. That's right, you're paying extra to have some of that money given back to you in a lesser form, that can only be spent on grossly overpriced products you don't even want. Not only that, the products can be priced in a way that is impossible to take exactly the offered value (e.g. products costing $8 and $12 when they give you $10 credit) forcing you to leave credit unspent, or go over and have to spend extra.

This is brilliant. Reminds me of the Community episode "Pillows and Blankets".

+Thomas Flight It's an episode where two characters (grown men, no less) have a fight between their pillow and blanket forts, respectively. But the catch is that it's all done is the style of a Ken Burns documentary with narration by Keith David.

Haven't seen that one. I'll have to watch it :)

Really interesting video on a topic I had no idea existed. I really love your channel, and unconventional videos like this is why.

Awesome video!
btw, film grain seems to really screw with picture quality on youtube

5 months ago

+Thomas Flight Well, the changes in quality from clip to clip weren't that noticeable. I guess it means that either the grain trick worked, or I paid much more attention to the narrative.
Either way, thanks again for a great video, keep up the good work!

It does a bit, although in this case, it's more often me using the film grain to "try to" cover over the low-resolution footage/photos I had available.

Love the tone you use. Great concept.
