FW: Amphis at London, Ontario 2010

I have been informed that the man I thought to be an "officious twit" was
actually an actor engaged in a subtly humorous spoof of Amphicars, and not
voicing his true feelings. The producer agreed that it was impossible to
know this by viewing his clip, so he said he will delete that audio track
from his documentary.

The better a satire is, the harder it is to tell it from reality. I guess I
fell into that trap this time, so I apologize for not comprehending the
humor.

Here's a link to the June 5, 2010 Steve Plunkett London Ontario charity auto
show, highlighting the Amphi participation.

A nice video, although try to forget the officious twit at 02:10, who
probably should have been keel-hauled!

Well, that would explain why, when I wanted to see it yesterday, it has
been "removed by owner." Could we please bring back the "officious
twit", so that the rest of us can adjust our spoof detectors, too??
