Irony taken to a new low




Who knew ironing a shirt required sound effects?
My favorite part is in the credits: this was filmed in a HOTEL!
(maybe non of the crew actually owned an ironing board and iron?)

haha, that's hilarious. I personally love the sound effects. Hell, I even learned a thing or two about ironing cuffs.

AC said...

The soundtrack indicates William Wallace needs to run in and stab somebody with a sword.

Also--who knew there were such specific rules for ironing? Good to know I've been doing it wrong for years.

Sarah said...

I love it when people talk in caps: "...Working Out Towards the Side Seams..." I wonder if folks would iron more if a hero theme music started playing every time they pulled out the ironing board.

Janet said...

Start with the back? Pfft! Amateurs.

Stephen D. Rogers said...

Apparently I'm been ironing wrong all these years since I always listened to Ride of the Valkyries.

Scott said...

Well, now I know how to iron. I too have been doing it wrong for years. I wonder if my ironing technique will improve with background music. I'll have to try that this weekend. Too dang funny!!

DeadlyAccurate said...

Reason #425 why I only buy clothes that don't require ironing: I don't get heroic theme music when I do my chores.

Sean Ferrell said...

They forgot step #1: do not wear the shirt while ironing.

I learned this the hard way.

No. I don't want to talk about it.

Conduit said...

Unfortunately, I didn't need a video to tell me I suck at ironing. :(

Just_Me said...

Wait, there are people who don't have wash and wear wrinkle free clothes? Of the kind that doesn't go to the dry cleaner? How.... stone age...

Ryan Field said...

Ha!

Haste yee back ;-) said...

That doesn't look so hard. I'll let my wife continue to do it!

Haste yee back ;-)

Joyce said...

Very funny! The ironer (I think I made up a new word!) in the video was clearly an amateur. Everyone knows you never do the back before the sleeves! And where was the spray starch?

Anne-Marie said...

I'm just happy they invented the left-handed iron a few years back. (The cord was on the other side, in case you're wondering). I just know you do the front last because I want to make a good first impression. :)

Finally explains why both 'irony' and 'ironing' have their root in the Greek word eir├Áneia, to simulate stupidity.

Barbara Martin said...

Well, that's the method my mother taught me to iron shirts in the 60s. For a video to be produced there must have been a need to teach ironing a shirt properly.

BJ said...

I have an iron.

Somewhere.

I think.

Bill Cameron said...

That guy's hair is an abomination before the Lord. As I watched him I found myself with an almost uncontrollable urge to commit a flying wedgie against him.

Kosmos said...

OMG this inspired me to go find my iron; I haven't seen it in a while.

There it is! On the outdoor table. My partner has been using it to iron veneer onto the bookshelves she's been making me....

Hmm I think I fail housewife 101.

Melanie Avila said...

Please don't tell my husband I watched this - I'm almost out of excuses for why I never iron his shirts. He even asks nicely. :)

BJ said...

Melanie, just move the iron a little slow, or press too hard on a seam so that you get nice brown marks. You might even just stop moving the iron for awhile. After he has to buy 6 to 10 new shirts, I'm sure he'll get the message...

Melanie Avila said...

LOL!
