    Honestly, I fail to see any value in this whatsoever. I would never pay for this, not even a little bit, I don't think he's even properly drunk (4 beers? Come on).

    No but seriously, I don't think this guy could give proper UX feedback even when sober. This video is literally just a bunch of meaningless and vain comments that barely hit the surface. Do people really want to spend their money on this? For the money he's charging I'm pretty sure there are UX experts totally willing to give you an incredibly more meaningful review.

        Obviously I've seen this ;) I know what the idea behind it all is, it's just that it's meant as more of a metaphor than an actually accurate method of giving UX feedback. In the screencast, this guy is obviously not the target audience, he's not a drunk teacher. More so, a lot of his 'drunken' comments come across as overreacting and just plain stupid.

        I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I really fail to see the value. Honestly, for me it's not even of comedic value, it's just a guy trying way too hard. Call me a cynic :)

          Haha. I personally think it's hilarious. In my opinion it's just something fun to watch and smart as well.

          Actually I don't mind paying him for the feedback. I wouldn't expect accurate or anything even close to a real UX specialist feedback, all I want is an honest feedback from a drunk person or a stupid user and that's valuable.

            If I believed he was really drunk or wasn't overacting, I would probably find entertainment in this as well. It just feels like some guy at a party who's had maybe one or two beers and just tries way too hard to act like he's totally hammered and stuff. I don't know. Each to their own, right? If you wanna pay this guy $250 to say some stupid stuff about your website, that's totally up to you ;)

      Yeah, he should have just done this for free if its going to be this useless. Even free, maybe not.
