4. Scrambler Slam: Ducati vs. Triumph


Okay this is more like it! The Ducati Scrambler may be one of the biggest hipster hits of all time, and the Bonneville’s not far behind it. Since this story was posted March 24 last year, it’s gotten 7.1k Facebook Shares, which is a bunch for MO, and the fact that videographer Andy Vu owns a drone, more than one microphone, and some sense of cinematography may have something to do with the video’s success. Starring EiC Duke (one commenter says he sounds like Carl Sagan) and Tom Roderick (see what I mean about the aging by comparing to #8), there is no John Burns in here at all, which may explain why it hasn’t yet busted through one million views.

    Quite agree with your first statement. Even though most of you are also pretty damn good at explaining things with your mouths – and remarkably good at not talking over each other like idiots – there’s nothing to beat a story on paper (err… pixels?). Everyone loves a well-hung sentence.

    I praised your scrambler video when it came out. And I still think that it’s THE best video shot by MO. Awesome vistas, ice-clear sound, nice depth-of-field use, adequate (and not loud) music, very coherent storytelling, professionally cut. It really is almost at the Top Gear level of video quality.
    Also liked tons of JB sarcasm and envy 🙂
