    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 ;)
