I haven’t posted a video on my YouTube channel in an extraordinarily long time – over three years, to be exact. Back in early 2015, I actually made my final “annual Buffalo Wild Wings winter trip” vlog, but for whatever reason forgot to upload it, and still haven’t since then (I sort of feel like it’s not really that relevant of a video anymore). One of my promotional obligations at my workplace involved me unboxing and reviewing a product from one of our sponsors, so I decided to take this opportunity to “revive” my channel by turning this into a video for my channel. … No, my channel is not actually “revived,” because I won’t be doing this on a regular basis. But here’s the video. As I mention in the video, the story behind this product is that I wanted Massdrop to send me one keycap with their logo on it, so if my keyboard were to ever appear in a video or a stream, it would essentially act as next-level product placement. But, instead of one keycap, Massdrop decided to send me 186 keycaps. In the video, I unpackage the keycaps and show what they look like, investigate the double-shot plastic and explain how that ensures quality and longevity, then proceed to install the Massdrop logo keycap onto my Escape key (after filing down the sharp edges off-camera, because that matters on a bezelless keyboard).
For reasons that will be revealed later, I wanted to purchase a toast-shaped bed. I found one on Amazon that looked nice and plush, and ordered it. This is what arrived: In response to what I received, I left a two-star review on the product page on Amazon, showing the public exactly what I received in the mail, and explaining that this isn’t actually really a bed, but rather, a warped piece of foam the size of a pillow. Then, something very interesting happened. The merchant, S-Lifeeling, reached out to me. But, not to apologize for a terrible product or to give me a voucher for a different product … but rather, to let me know that I needed to wait two days for the foam to decompress. The funny part was that the day on which they sent me that message was the two-day mark, and the crumpled foam looked exactly the same. It doesn’t end there. Earlier today, they proceeded to message me on Facebook, requesting that I change my negative review to a five-star one. I promptly requested a refund via Amazon, packaged the product, changed my two-star review to a one-star review, and decided to share my story here too.
