Loved the idea, but said the same thing in the reddit thread a few weeks back - it irrationally irked me that they called the HHKB "switches" MX Greens.

That bugged me too especially since he hits the spacebar and it even makes the Topre sound.

The guy's voice is a spot on reproduction of Christian Bale though.

Only peeps on dis' forum would know though, to the Outside, it do'n real matter.

They did a gud' job on the video.  I think the framing could be better, buh it's not really a videography project after-all.

It's just weird that they'd ignore something they're interacting with that's so obvious, especially since keyboard minutiae are the theme of the video (like the business card minutiae in the original). Plus Topre is more elitist than MX Greens. But I get what you're saying.

It's like when Tp4 sees other people watch movies/ play games on an Uncalibrated monitor.

To Tp4, it's like, how can you watch/play this, don't you know that's the wrong color ?, That grey bar is BLUE, it's not even grey.

Tp4 can't watch TV @ anyone else's house, it's unbearable,  pure suffering.

agreed, if you're hinging a joke on something being nichely pretentious you better get your information completely correct

I'm guessing that's all they had on hand. But the fact that they were all basically the same keyboard was exactly like the movie, haha.
