All those clips are bogus.. throw a nail into a piece of plywood and it will bounce off every time.

Not when they're doing stuff like that.

After hours, fine. But not on the clock.

You cant tell me none of you housing guys have practiced throwing your screwdriver into the 2X4's Or having the wire nut war with 1/2" pipe. Its one thing to screw around as long as your getting the job done its another thing to screw around all day and get nothing done!

The floor plywood is glued and screwed, there is no bounce and the nail sticks.

It's all computer generated. Just look at the video at 0.21 sec as he is pulling off the keys, and you will notice that the guy supposedly is holding the tape with his bare right hand, yet the tape seemingly goes right through his closed fingers...

Silly...but good..
