If you have ever run across some of the incredibly inane videos on YouTube offering “expert” advice on stuff like drawing caricatures, then you will be laughing until the tears are running down your cheeks over the video above.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many useful and good video tutorials and resources on YouTube and about the web, but so many of them are useless and contain no real information whatsoever. Witness these incredibly lame caricature instructional videos I blogged about some time ago from the so-called “Expert Village”. Not only does the lady doing the instruction not tell you a single piece of useful info, but the drawing she is “working” on was lifted from a caricaturist named Kirk Bjorndahl.
The above video was done by caricaturist Jeremy “Jert” Townsend and perfectly lampoons these types of no-info instructional videos. The only flaw to it is the length… most of the useless how-to videos only last 2 to 3 minutes total. Jert worked too hard on it! He should produce an entire series of “SuperExpertUSA” videos, they’d be a YouTube sensation.
