Gotta love school these days! Especially when for a marketing class project the task is to make a spoof video, toss it on youtube, and get graded on how many views the video gets! Straight from our CrackBerry forums, member tuffy_82 decided to do up a spoof commercial for his beloved BlackBerry Torch 9800. Funny. Check out the video above and watch it knowing you're helping a student get a good grade.

I gotta say though... I reallly love the optical trackpad that's now standard on BlackBerry phones, but every now and then I do miss my sticky balls. :)

This is a terrible spoof.

Why was a girl in the boys bathroom?

Tsudeily

never heard of unisex bathrooms?

JudasShawn

As a matter of a fact I had not. Just looked it up in Wiki. Very interesting.

Still a pretty lame spoof though

I just wasted 40 seconds of my life!

Still a better use of my time then most of the political ads I've seen in the last month.

Better hope the Orange guys dont see this, could be a problem.

lol i liked it. LOL. i laughed.

They are college kids what do you expect, Kubrick or Spielberg? Just click on the link and watch the video, they get graded based on the amount of views. Lets make this thing go viral!

The video sucked, so what. Help them out. Its hard enough in college as it is. Take it from a guy that is finishing his Engineering Degree, any help is God sent...

jussimple

I watched it. That looked like claymation meets MySimms but funnier.

jeeves86

That's just from a site where someone puts in the dialogue and the computer does the rest. They put some effort into this.

While I can be forgiving about the poor quality of the recording I must say I am dissappointed that there is no real funny or intriguing idea about it. Just an emberrasing childish movie, that's all. Wouldn't get me interested in the Torch or even make me buy it.

otterlover

There's nothing wrong being childish. I think these students did a pretty good job. I laughed at least. And I bet they did it just for their assignment, not trying to make you buy it.

.....okay then. that was kinda.....i dunno. Life goes on.

Thanks for posting Kevin. We're not trying to be film producers. Just something silly to learn about how to market things.

Thanks for posting Kevin. We're not trying to be film producers, and don't worry, I'd never work for RIM's marketing! hahaha

What did the girl say?? Dang soft-spoken Asians (I'm Filipino myself, but I'm not that soft-spoken, LOL)! I couldn't hear her over the toilet flushing.

chuckh0308

"you guys, just cut off your ball..." She was very loud and clear...maybe your speakers are bad? Not being an azz, just saying...

Thor1972

Did nobody notice that the guy on the left is taking a leak in the sink...?

chuckh0308

There is a mirror on the wall that would make you think that, but that's definitely a urinal there. They show pretty much the whole thing near the end.

TillMarch

..But nothing. Just f*cking lame and timewasting! I want my data back!

Rob FDIinc

Some one has WAYYYYY to much time on their hands

caspian

If you guys are on the site its not like you were busy. Video made me smirk fobby asians are just funny. Lucky kid whatever uni your at, I just finished Engineering I wish we got to do stuff like this!

This was not only unfunny but it plays on the obvious crude jokes of a ball joke and tries to pass it off as comedy. Its freaking youtube, being that unfunny is not ok.

jussimple

I'll give you that. It is youtube and with videos like annoying orange and kung fu hillbilly, it really is not OK to be this unfunny. Yet, its for school. I would be hard pressed to make homework into a comedy, so I wouldn't presume that someone else would be able to. But if you are looking for funny, the two viral vids mentioned are highly recommended.

jeeves86

Funny and un-funny are relative. And there's loads of trash and crap on Youtube that's a lot worse than this.

HTC_Droid_EvO

Check those other two out.

Rootbrian

i don't care, i watched it, i liked it. if you don't like it, watch something else. period.

Rootbrian

It just made by day.

First off, when I was in mexico for 6 days straight, returning to toronto on the 6th day in the evening, one of those 6 days was a fireworks show that occurred everywhere. I saw, what this video was joking about, 9 cockinballs in the sky, no wait, a total of 18, from the strange smoke formations in the night sky from all those fireworks. It was the funniest moment of my life and i have never seen that shit in toronto ever.

So, this video is funny, cockinballs are even better LOL

hyperscorpic

when you start almost EVERY scentence with "oh"

mbetter3

Does your optical trackpad go crazy in the sun!!

pmich

OMG that was absolutely terrible...

not even funny at all... horrible delivery.

The Torch at the end made me forget for a few seconds that I watched a lame vid with 3 geeky fobs in it.

littlekelli

Okay, that was just plain dumb!!!!!
