The Switch Club

When the Nintendo Switch was announced, I set up a forums website for it. The idea was to have a discussion board for each Nintendo Switch game, but this quickly proved to be a silly and unmanageable idea. Many of its members were from The Bell Tree Forums, and one was the owner of Animal Crossing Portal, so you may as well consider it the precursor to the ACNH Forum.

I decided to get a spokesperson video for it, and chose the legendary Big Man Tyrone. His prices were expensive by my standards, so I threw in “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” as a bit of a piss-take to make the most of my 25 words. Bless the man for actually saying this.

All in all, for the price I paid for 25 words, I’m not too satisfied with the little things, such as the angle of the recording (notice the table edge) and how high the contrast is (his suit is not pure black, yet it mostly shows up like that in the video). And it was a stereo video but with the audio only coming through the left channel – I had to fix that.

Even to this day, his video production seems a bit haphazard. At the time of writing (February 2020), his current uploads to YouTube have serious audio clipping and autofocus issues. Despite his meme value and lovable personality, I’m afraid I can’t really recommend him, at least if money is an object to you.

As this video doesn’t have any value to me now, I am releasing all copyright from it. I have no idea if Tyrone would still own some form of copyright on it, as this is not stated on his website, but I doubt he cares. If you want to do anything with it, you can download the original file here.
