If you haven't been keeping up with Casey Neistat's daily vlogs, then you absolutely need to start. They're a great source of creative inspiration, lots of running cut-scenes, and the occasional viral video. In this particular vlog, Neistat tells a story on the importance of not quitting and, while filming, experiences an error with his Canon 70D. You may not believe how he solves it.
As seen in the video above and the surprisingly cathartic GIF below, sometimes the only course of action is a little smashing.
Long-time Neistat fans will already know how much he likes working with compact cameras for their size, portability, digression, and reliability. While I'm not a Canon owner or video expert myself, I'd have to imagine the error he keeps getting has something to do with the fact that he's rocking a Transcend SD card. Time to step up your memory game, friend.
If someone can dig up his office address I have a couple SanDisk cards that I know won't let him down.
Whether or not you thought it was funny watching Neistat chop the heck out of that 70D, you have to appreciate the moral behind his story in the vlog today: don't quit and don't let gear get into your way.
