Our second finalist in CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy contest comes to us via CrackBerry member Deathcommand. Deathcommand is well known on the CrackBerry forums, having racked up almost 4,000 forum posts to date (win or lose, he's a BB super fan in my book!).
His video entry is titled BlackBerry Adrenaline... and well.. let's just say as I did with our first finalist video, I'll keep the teaser here short so you can watch and be surprised and entertained for yourself. But it's definitely got a bit of everything, action, humor and everything in between. When you're done watching the video above, you can keep reading below for more on deathcommand and his BlackBerry Adrenaline video. CrAzY awesome stuff!
Hello. My name is Hans Lee. I am 17 years old and am known as Deathcommand on the forums. I am currently in highschool and attending Georgia Perimeter College. Yeah. One of those million campuses.
I got the 8330m on sprint in 2009 of September, and after a few days of learning I finally found out how I could use it. Most of the learning was from my Youth Pastor at church but soon I began to love it even more.
As I found out, my 8330m would never get BlackBerry 5.0. I was devastated. But I filled in the gap by falling in love with CrackBerry.com. I remember when the 9650 rumored with 256mb's of RAM, when it was labeled as a Tour when the Tour was changed only to have WiFi and a trackpad as added features.
I remember the release. I read up Kevin's article at least 3 times that day and many more after that. I remembered that in my head, RIM just released the best phone created.
Fast forward to September 2010, I asked my dad if I could get the 9650. He saw the $200 price tag and said no. He told me to get a phone that has 4G and a bigger screen. He even offered to pay for the Epic 4G if I agreed to use it. I said I wanted the 9650 for its keyboard and after a good hour of begging him and pestering him, I was grounded for my persistence and for declining his offer.
1 Month later I asked again. Same result.
1 Month later. I asked again. He finally agreed. Now it is the same with the 9930. Except he now wants me to get the Galaxy S2.
My video is called "BlackBerry Adrenaline" as I try my best to make this as much into an action genre as possible.
It also features Mystery, Comedy, Tragedy, and Horror.
What you see in the film is not me being reckless (well it kind of is). I understand what I am doing and I do practice. The type of running is Parkour. I chose to add this because I don't feel the videos on what people did for the What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? contest were quite... amazing enough. For example, the tattoo for many is very un-risky. If there is any problem, they can get money back or just have them fix it. Shot with paint balls? It's merely pain. Bruises go away within a few days. How about embarrassing yourself at Time Square? Why do we want others to think this is what BB Addicts do?
Mine is a bit different.
A BlackBerry user can do what? They aren't afraid? That is what I think is awesome.
For explanation, the video begins with a happy intro, which has a very small bit of mystery, which turns to action, and then turns to comedy, then back to action, then to terror and drama.
I hope you enjoy the video. May the best video win.
Acting, Hans Lee and Abraham Lee.
Extra Info: Filmed By Abraham Lee, Ellen Lee, Joseph Nam and Hans Lee
Also. There is a magical purple line at the first scene. I don't know where it came from and it gives nothing to the video so don't try to analyze it at all. It is a hardware issue.
** Quick Note: For anyone interested in learning Parkour. Do not attempt to pick up at the level that I displayed. It is not a sport that is simply seen and repeated. I have been training for over 8 years (since I was in 3rd grade). You can contact me on the forums if you want to learn but even I am not the best teacher. Youtube has been my teacher.
