Don’t Shoot Your Computer – Call Us 214-232-9503
Promotional Video Announcement
For Over a Decade I’ve Wanted to Do This
It’s certainly been a long time that I’ve yearned to produce a promotional video featuring the wanton destruction of recalcitrant computers via large-bore firearms (stringing together some of my favorite terms into a single sentence here…) and a couple of weeks ago we finally did it. Prompted by my bride, I enlisted the aid of some business associates (HKLiquidations and REcover) in procuring the needed “victims” and conscripted my cousin and his family property in the hinterlands of rural Texas in which to undertake this project.
Equipped with a Canon 5D Mk III and 5D Mk II along with my Samsung Galaxy S7 to record the fun and games, we proceeded out into the boonies with an all-in-one computer, a 17″ CRT and a laptop all to be sacrificed in the name of good, red-blooded American fun (and marketing). Naturally, we brought along my Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum revolver, Ruger Mini 14 rifle, my cousin’s 30.06 rifle and a supply of Tannerite. For those unfamiliar with Tannerite, it is a chemical compound that requires mixing when ready to use and is detonated by velocity. You have to shoot a projectile through it in excess of 2,000 feet per second to set it off. This is why we needed the rifles (aside from that fact that they are FUN)…
Recording the action from 3 different vantage points and then assembling it all – and adding some voice-over was a decent sized project and a fair amount of fun. A nod to Clint Eastwood and Dirty Harry for inspiration. You’ll see what I mean in the video.
The full-length video is now complete on our YouTube Channel. There will eventually be an outtakes / blooper reel. Currently there are also 3 shorts to isolate each individual event in 60 seconds or less. This video runs just over 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Please rate, comment and share our newest project.
And here is the abbreviated version:
(minus the homage to Dirty Harry) with lots of fast-cuts
Again: Please rate, comment and share our newest version.

And before you shoot your computer – Call Me, OK?
It’s pretty difficult (impossible) to recover data from a pile of debris.
