Our mysterious video editor, hh, who swoops in like a Zwarte Piet once a month and leaves us with a gorgeous video feast, has made another appearance on the site. And after bestowing upon us gems like The 100 Best Quotes of the Wire, The 100 Cheesiest Movie Quotes of All Time, and The 160 Greatest Arnold Schwarzenegger Quotes of All Time, you’d never imagine that hh could top himself.
And then you see GET OUT OF THERE!: The Video and after you pick your jaw up off the floor, you just kind of stand back in awe and marvel at the effort and the results. (And this one gets a hap tip to laredo, for inspiration). It’s staggering.
