    This for-fun video is a fantasy of how the pitch for the AOW course might have sounded in an alternate universe. It's my first effort at such a skit, I shoot with my phone, and possess only crude editing software and skills, so please keep that in mind :wink:
    The video is an adaptation of the Pitch Meeting Concept developed by Ryan George and the Screen Rant YouTube channel.

These videos may contain exaggerations of fact and/or play loose with the facts for comedic value. Any single course or policy that is discussed may actually represent a mixture of facts from several agencies and/or courses.

    Sounds pretty damn close to me! I was wondering during my AOW when the hard questions and tests would come!

    Bullseye.

    I think you’re on the verge of redeeming yourself for the “shaka as gas check” video.

    LOL...I've got 4 vids in cue...hoping they're up to par...
    I need to get my subs up to increase viewership. This video-making is becoming a full time gig :wink:
    I wrote a script in a similar theme to this for MSD...but this AOW vid was not so well received, judging by views and retention. A bit surprised by that, though I guess any material that could be interpreted as partisan runs a risk of alienating some part of the viewership.
    Accident/incident vids are crazy popular, but I only have a few more of those left.
