Default Good impropmtu performance

Several years ago, Rockwell International decided to get
into the heavy duty transmission business. They were getting
ready to tape a first introduction video, and as a warm up, the
professional narrator began what has become a legend within
the trucking industry. This man should have won an academy
award for his stellar performance. Now remember this is strictly off the
cuff, nothing is written down, this became the biggest talk in the
industry, vs the new product which they were introducing.

They later re-shot this with "props" and "diagrams" to illustrate the "operation" of the "Turbo-encabulator" transmission........

The laughing at the end was great. Could even get through 2 mins w/o laughing. Classic.
