3:57 /

As the year comes to an end, Brian Tong reflects on the highlights of 2009.

[ Music ] >>Brian: [background music] Geez it's year two now? Time flies and I really love how we've been able to really bond here as a team. We've just really been able to do some amazing things together. There's been so many great memories. >>Woo, it's been a rough year >>Brian: You like that baby? [laughter] Everyday sucks, even the holidays cause he calls me. It's annoying. Yeah at the end of the day in this business it's all about respect. I feel like I'm really respected here. Thanks for yawning, Jim. That was really encouraging. [noise] >>He can't read a prompter. You know, he can't pronounce anything correctly. >>Brian: Spark the revolation, [assumed spelling] revolation? Oh my voice cracked. >>He's just like so annoying and follows me everywhere and just like makes me feel so awkward. >>Ahh >>You want to know what I like about Brian Tong? Not a Goddamn thing >>Brian: I respect them, everything they do. I'm gonna try and show some things since you're just being a [beep] right now, piece of [beep] . At the end of the day my work reflects on me and really perfection is key. Like think about it, did Leonardo da Vinci stop painting the statue of David until it was perfect? He didn't. Yeah Page I just have a few more effects, [beep] what I was gonna say after that. We'll work or if it will be, or if they will be, [beep]. We'll see you guys next week and come back [beep]. >>Mistakes, flubs, gaffes, these are all the things that Brian excels at. >>Brian: Over 100 and 1,000 developers, 100 and 1,000, that's not. It makes my job a lot harder cause I'm supposed to edit garbage, you know, it's tough. This weeks Apple of the week is I aunt, [laughter]. >>It wasn't for a teleprompter, this guy would be out on the street selling pencils right now. >>Brian: But in all seriness, [assumed spelling] seriness? Feedback, oh we get a lot of great feedback. >>We get complaints all the time. >>Brian: Here we go this one's from greenlantern1, could you please get rid of Brian Tong? He's so horrible he makes me want to punch my monitor. In fact I've been through three already. Is this right? >>Yeah, we haven't gotten any positive feedback. I mean well his mom, well no, that was negative too. >>Brian: Alright Jerrod Spencer writes us, seriously that Tong loser is a shame to all gay people everywhere. I'm not even -- you know it feels really good that the team around you is really focused and committed to making quality video. Hey guys, how was that? Did it work out right, hello? >>Hey guys, who is here, there's cats? [noise] >>Brian: Okay you guys there? Are we gonna go get checkers or do something like that tonight? >>Look, I have to produce this [beep] everyday. I have to work with him everyday. >>Brian has put many of us on the precipice of addiction and even worse. The need to medicate when I leave this place is the strongest urge that I have. >>Brian: You know this team, [crying] sorry, it's just amazing. I haven't had a chance to work with people like this. I love them like my mom. >>I can't stand him. [crying] I can't believe I set him up with my sister. ^M00:03:50 [ Music ]
