In my most humble opinion.......any vids done by that mob who refer to themselves as "Expert Village", are not only a joke, but quite a laughable joke at that.

Somewhere in Expertville, a village is missing it's idiot. :-)

Honestly, I've seen a couple halfway decent Expertvillage drum videos before. But for heaven's sake... I know what you mean.

Really??? You must point them out.

I may well be new(ish) to all the "drum vids on youtube" caper.....but when it comes to the village idiots....sorry....expert village, christ knows I'm still searching for answers.

There's the occasional one that isn't actually painful to watch, like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dnt-Jiphlsk Not much of any kind of a lesson, but a decent solo, and good advice to wear ear protection. Thats about as good as expertvillage gets, sort of ok :P haha

It is a joke. That guy's a keyboard player. It's a complete put-on. Quite funny I think.

That was AWESOME! His tag line at the end was epic. I couldn't stop laughing.
...advanced hip hop beats...too funny

I'm working on an Expert Village video where I discuss heart surgery.

I have often thought that most of the people that put vids on EV do it as a joke.

Love the tom angles and the sweet tom adjustment with the stick. Made me cringe.

I think it's a village of idiots missing its one non-idiot, personally.


Hey, just got some intel off the comments...

@dembumboclot nope, no joke. i know this guy.


Could this be true? I mean, why would he lie? It certainly looks like a joke, but who could really keep a straight face doing that?
The plot thickens...

Re: PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE!!
 
Well, I hope its a joke, because this guy would be my hero, if it were true. This makes me want to do some awesomely horrible drum videos like that. I feel the ideas brewing... :)

HAHAHAHAHA

Damn, that made me laugh. Nothing beats unintended comedy.

What do you expect? It's the expert village. The same people who told us we need at least a 40,000 watt bass amp as a practice amp!!!

Ooh, but thats actually true. Anything smaller, and you can't hear yourself.

Ha ha, guys it really is a joke. The guy's a keyboard player, I believe. Anyway he's a real musician, he's just not a drummer and he did this as a satire, a prank. I'm pretty sure I read that right here on DW in an old thread. I know I've read that somewhere if not here. I'd look it up but I've never been able to figure out how to locate old threads.

Nothing like a little cow bell for that true hip hop feel. Those ex-con village videos are the best.

I just noticed on their web site they have a beauty tips section. Can you imagine.??? Yuck

It's expert village what did you expect

I want that minute of my life back.

Watching the guys from 'Expert Village' is sort of like watching 'Cops'. I come away feeling much better about my own life. (Or drumming in this case...)

What was that dude on?!

That in turn begs the question, are all the expert village vids a joke?

It's unfortunate that this confirmed joke, is so par for the 'Expert Village' course. He's not the only vid out of their lot that has left me scratching my head. So it's either a very well placed satire.....or collective "muppetery". :-)

Re: PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE!!
 
Satire is great and everything, but it should at least be funny.
This dude really looks and acts like hes trying to show us something.

It would be funny if he couldnt play anything at all but he is holding down somewhat of a beat. Again somewhat.
