Tech Industry: Brian Tong blooper reel

3:57 /

As the year comes to an end, Brian Tong reflects on the highlights of being at CNET.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Now, my time here at CNET -- I mean it's been about over a year, and I don't know. It's hard to be perfect. And when I came here, Tom and Molly, they both said, "You gotta be perfect. You gotta be perfect." So, you know, I think I've done that. The local drive, which is usually when the command prompt shows up, op shows up, press the Windows -- woop. Oh, sorry. Can't even talk. Can tape a -- take. ^M00:00:28 [Clap ] [ Gasp ] [ Scream ] ^M00:00:29 One of the things that I've totally learned is really to just come to work with a level of professionalism because really, it's all about earning the respect of your peers. [Inaudible] it out. [Mumbles]. ^M00:00:42 [ Music ] ^M00:00:47 Charlie that we can pull out at -- sorry. >> You're five. >> I pride myself on a lot of stuff, and you know, I told myself I would never say anything here that I wouldn't say in front of my three-year old niece. I think I've done that. [Beep] Yeah, I [beep] [beep]. Just stop [beep]. Aw [beep] Well, I've done so many different videos, but I think my favorite one is definitely the Prizefight. It really shows people that, like, I'm a no nonsense type of guy. I mean I don't mess around. And really, it's all about delivering the information that they want to see. It's a complicated video, but really at the core, it's important that it really shows my journalistic skills, and just my writing abilities. Woo pah. Woo pah. Woo pah. Woo pah. Woo pah. Woo pah. [phonetic] Woo pah, woo pah. If I had to give advice to anyone the biggest thing is just maintaining a really solid working relationship because -- I mean with me and my producer, we're like this. And he's what makes me look good. That was not cool, man. That was not even. >> User error. >> Dude, seriously, do you want to start talking [beep] to me now? >> [Inaudible]. It's not getting any better than that. [Inaudible] looks good. >> Okay. >> Except for the talent, but there's nothing we can do about that. >> I can't do anything about that. >> Don't look like that. >> Should I smile? >> Good job, producer. [ Beep] Okay, when they hired me I was freaking out. I'm just like a tech freak. I gotta get my hands on things. And really, it's I gotta deliver the inside and out information and that's what I pride myself on. K-E-W-L. Dude. What the [beep]. Why isn't this working now? K-E-W-L. Why? Why? [Beep]. Sorry, connection problem occurred. [Beep] you. K-E-W-L. Look, look what I'm pressing. This is a piece of [beep]. I'm pressing on the [beep] "L." Oh my gosh, what just happened? K-E-W -- do you see that? No, I know. They see the hair, right. They see all the bling and stuff, but it's really just showing my intelligence. The Nano gets a five, and the Zune gets a three. Oops. Gets a three. Oops. What I love about working here? I just love the fact that, you know, these are my co-workers. You know, these are my friends. Not even friends, these are like my family, you know? And I just know that none of them would do, like, anything to hurt me. ^M00:03:37 [ Smacking sound and groaning ] ^M00:03:46 CNET, here's to you. Cheers. 2009, make it great. ^M00:03:51 [ Music ]
