Boxing…LIKE A BOSS

So, yeah, we know this isn’t a super polished and edited video. No color correction, barely any editing, no music, and none of the wicked CGI we usually do. We just think that this is totally cool and wanted to share it somehow. It doesn’t really fit in with the regular content we do, either. It’s just a stupid simple video! Martina doesn’t like it, but I do! It’s Korea related, though, because…it’s in Korea. Oh! And we never saw anyone do this for us at the post offices in Canada, either. It’s more like “buy your own damn box.” Here I can just bring a bunch of junk (as seen in our WTF videos) and ask him to make a custom made box for me. 3,000 won later, I’ve got something bubble wrapped and all ready to go. In fact, I used this for wrapping Martina’s presents for Christmas this year. Seriously. I suck at wrapping presents. It’s much better to get them boxed and then draw something on the boxes instead of wrapping them horrendously in wrapping paper. It doesn’t help that my drawings suck as well, but at least they’re not as bad as his wrapping.

Also, some people have asked about what the post offices are like in Korea, and suggested that we should make a video for it. We thought about it, but, really, it’s not that confusing. We go in with envelopes or boxes (like this awesome box here), pick a number, and wait to be called. Then we just give them the package, tell them what kind of delivery we like (normal or express) and they ask for money. It’s that simple. If you’ve got questions, you can ask them here, but I don’t really know what more we can say about it.

Anyhow, we posted this on our YouTube bonus channel, so make sure to subscribe to that for more of our extra footage, like Blooper Reels and Deleted Scenes, and just other general nonsense. Hooray to having two YouTube channels! We plan on posting more stuff there in the future, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on that would you? Would you?!

  2. OMG, how does Martina not like this? It’s awesome! Anyways, I just want to know, in Korean stores or post offices, does one have to speak Korean to be understood, or can one just get by with speaking English?

  3. from what i can hear..the guy seems to have lost/left something there and the guy making the box is saying he didn’t see it. and if he had…why would he have thrown it away…and they just go on for a bit….

  9. This video is far too amusing/mesmerizing when you first wake up and your brain is still semi-fried from writing a paper till 2am.

  11. I was watching like that ":O" It's amazing how fast he made a box!!!

  12. 1) if you guys ever folded a box, it's got a certain shape (think 6 sided). He's just doing the pattern according to the size.
    2) The knife he used, and the paper, it's premade, 2 knot = cut through, 1 knot = indent.

    3000 won = 3 bucks USD, but the equivalent in the US would be about 6 bucks. I'm not sure if anyone would pay that much since we have USPS flat rate shipping in the US (the gigantic large box is about 15, box is free :)).

    But I can see that he's got really fast speed making it, musta made a ton of boxes haha. I used to live in asia, and I remember seeing something like this but at a clothing shop, we asked to get it boxed (for gifts), the shop owner pull out a cardboard paper and did it similar to this dude (although less skill and thiner paper = easier).

  13. I totally made a gif for this blog post. I'll tweet it.

  21. very cool. I think at US post offices they train the workers to glare at every customer no matter what they request :) and if they offered custom boxes they would charge your first born child…..

  23. That is experience and artistry at work here; I'm in awe!
    I wish we were taught to do things like that, here in Canada! (But in Québec, they took most of the classes involving manual work out of the curriculum; I'm appalled! It's not like a nation only needs government office workers! T_T)

  31. Ooooooooh Its really amazing!!!!!!!0_0 but his voice or attitude is not kind…

  32. I can hear what the boxman(?) is saying. Perhaps he is arguing with someone(a customer or his boss). I think he is a little bit annoyed.

    "포장해놓는거 봤잖아요"(You saw I was wrapping it.)
    "버리는데 있었으면 제가 보관해놨죠. "(when it was in throwing place(?), I picked and had it.)
    "가지고 있었으면 분명히 제가 넣었겠죠. 안넣었겠어요? 기억은 안나는데 제가 뭐 보관하는건 없어요"
    (If I had it, I should keep it, didn't I? I can't remember excactly, I don't have anything.)

    I can't translate exactly and I can't figure oldman's voice :)
