Funny? Cute? Dorky? or Lame?

No, I’m not asking you to rank me personally. I’m not that desperate for validation.
…besides, I unfortunately know how many of you would vote :-)
I’m asking you to rank a portion of this How To video.
Here’s the story:
I recently repaired my Roland RD-500 digital piano, and I recorded video of my experience. It’s keyboard hammers have been breaking every so often over 2 years time, so after my 2nd visit to the ‘pro’ repair shop, I was told I should just get a new keyboard. Well, the HinterScrooge inside of me couldn’t accept that so I went about finding how to repair it.
Anyway, everything went well…well enough that I also repaired my church’s RD-600.
(Tip, always follow biblical teaching in these circumstances. Haggai 3:56 says “Better to learn how to repair your own electronic device rather than get all ‘know-it-all-y’ and completely break the holy keyboard of our Lord…lest you forfeit your first born…or your first guitar…whichever is more painful to part with” )
I digress.
My point: At about 8 minutes into the video, I must have been getting loopy, because I added a sub-plot to the how-to video.
Yes, a sub-plot.
I don’t mention it in the YouTube description because I thought it would be refreshing if someone was actually learning something through this video, then after 8 minutes they’d get a little scene change.
But my smile-o-meter must be broken because I can’t decide if it’s actually funny, just cute, kinda dorky, or just plain lame.
Here’s the video:
So, what is it?
Funny?  Cute?  Dorky?  or just Lame?
Also, check back to see if any RD-500 user ‘in the wild’ comments on the video :-)
Happy voting!

  3. I can't believe I married such a dork.

  4. You do know this clip exceeds the average Internet attention span by at least 11 minutes, right?

  5. i'm going with dorky but spiked with tinge of cute. That combination is pretty funny.
