Very funny!
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

hahahahahahaha... No, wait a minute... (wipes tears) hahahahahahaha!

I watched this on the Prelinger archives (available for free download!). It stars Herk Harvey, most famous for creating Carnival of Souls. This movie is actually a fairly effective film outlining the importance of using hand gestures during public speaking.

It contains some hilarious animations (look for the hand coming out of the man's forehead) and the speech is great too ("Some of the people of Africa are tall, others are very short. Some are fat, and some are thin. You might say that Africa is a mixture of people of different sizes and shapes."). This is a highly recommended and funny movie. When the tight speaker finally starts using gestures, he looks drunk!. It's a riot.
