    I hate this guy's act. This would be way more interesting if he was not tech savvy and also was drunk. He's just putting on his UX hat and tearing the site apart. Find me a real world, everyday drunk user that is pointing out the freakin' padding on a link.

    The problem here is that this simply cannot work. People in our line of work are experts at presenting things in clear, understandable ways. Fundamental to that is the ability to identify "the point" of something, no matter how terribly it's presented. He can't hide the fact that he does understand the site, even though he knows why others might not.

    Also, what's up with the blatant disregard for the target market? The visual style is appropriate, even if it's totally tacky.

    His schtick seems to be based on the idea that drunks are always belligerent fools. I know plenty a happy drunk.

    What a waste of time.
