Shortly after we posted it, the person behind the record button, Paul McKenna, took the video down, because of "the negative comments it was receiving on your site." This left us to live in "a world where our children, and children's children, will never get to see hipsters [ed. note—in 2012, they are now pretty much an extinct species] falling on ice."
