I'm not knocking the video per se. As much as I think some of is corny, I also think it's kind of cool. I've said it before and I'll say it here. There was a time in my life that I look back on with fondness where I actually kind of revolved my whole life around the gym, and so did some of my friends. No, I don't mean we were all competitive bodybuilders, but much of life was centered around this one gym and the places around it.
I've never been vain, but I hung out and worked out in the same gym as some VERY vain guys who dressed like those two in the videos. Definitely not bad guys, but very vain. I worked out at a certain gym in my late teens and early twenties that would become so goddamn packed in the summer time that you wouldn't know what the heck to do with yourself. I mean guido central! You'd go out to a club or to the beach and you'd see the whole damn gym there, just dozens of juiced up, tanned, shaved, eyebrow-tweezed guidos who thought they were the hottest shit in the world. Surprisingly, some looked very good despite not having a damn clue about what they should exactly be doing. They just made sure to always be active and in the gym, do a ton of cardio, lift on whatever routine, and eat their egg whites, protein powder, chicken, and whole wheat toast.
I thought I was the hottest shit because I had SOME (not a lot of) muscle at the time and loved wearing my Perfetto tank tops and guido shirts I bought at Musclemag International. I'd just love lifting, showering, changing and then hanging out at some outdoor restaurant or bar. No one had a damn care in the world. Yeah, I was a cornball, but I was happy, and if I had a time machine would do it again.
