This is a shame. I know it cost around £200-£300 for a round trip on the Eurostar from London to Paris. Add to that the hotels and foods and taxis and WWI fees (press pass probably is free) and maybe even purchasing a camera and puffy microphone sponge.hes a nice kid and has a good personality but someone really needs to be with him to hold the camera. these videos are extremely hard to watch and honestly due to that, I just skip them.Now before you all bitch at me realize this..WowInsider is (probably) paying this kid for a product they can put on this extremely popular website. Someone took the care and thought to get an external microphone and wind screen. It shows they were carefully thinking and planned ahead to get great audio with no pops, wind noise and nerd breath (and the videos do sound great btw). Sadly its all trumped by the roller coaster video quality.Turpster,you have a good opportunity here. Don't waste it. Your content is good but you really need to think out your production quality. get one of the 10,000 girls your going to end up waking up with in the morning to hold the camera for you tomorrow.Now people, before you just read this and react with a harsh comment without thinking, read it again and think about what I am saying. I'm trying to help not insult or complain.Hugz and kisses~Vlad

Vlad, you're silly. That's like saying WoW graphics could be more realistic. Of course he could have done it like CNN or something... but amateur shaky cam is a design decision. It's a fun video. Turpster makes me smile, every time. All those fresh faced young'uns in line made me smile too. *grins*
