Know what drives me up the fucking wall? Unprofessionalism is a style now.
Yesss that's it. This setup might just be the archetype of that. It makes sense when you look at the 'anyone can make videos' mentality that is still central to YouTube - if a channel keeps on growing, there is little reason to deviate from those unprofessional habits. I've actually been watching Marques' videos for five years now. His review was why I switched from my iPhone 3GS to the Galaxy Nexus back in the day. There is honestly not a lot that has changed except the quality of the visuals and maybe his pacing.
