Guilty of the following,
Too much data (Not my fault if I had to present a highly condensed scientific article).
Color scheme (Pink lettering on a yellow background, what was I smoking?!).
Animations (I set it on random animations for more variety. And it was on the crazy color presentation mentioned above!!!)
And that`s why I find this funny.

Oh, and I also had to sit through a horrible presentation with just text that was read off of the screen. I am glad this hilarious lesson pointed out this one at the very beginning because that`s the worst mistake someone can ever make in a Powerpoint. I actually had to turn around and talk to that hot girl behind me. As for my mistakes, at least what I did was to be as accurate as possible, and with some razzle-dazzle.

Gotta love how people focus on the guy`s worth as a comedian, and not the point of the video, which was meant to have us groan and chuckle at the cliches that we could relate to.

You guys seriously suck. This video was good and was not all about the comedy. Morons who only value vids if they`re funny strike again!

i didn`t find it very funny, but that`s probably because i don`t see powerpoint presentations all too often. Last time I saw one was when I had to make one (freshman year at high scool[5 years ago])

The first slide sums up almost every PowerPoint presentation I`ve ever seen. After that, the jokes got a little stale...

i really hate things like that. being in school you have to see a crap load of presentations but even the teachers don`t know how to use powerpoint, let alone students. If i had 5 cents for every pink backgrounded slide read directly... ugh.

This is soooo true. I have to do PowerPoints in almost every class every month. When I watch other peoples` `Points, all I ever notice are the spelling errors, overuse of animation and overcrowding of info. Makes watching them painful. At least they have color sense.

Mine are never overdone, but they`re never spectacular. As much info on a page as you would feel comfortable reading, a mid-range of data (in fact I never like pasting charts into my presentation), an Ok-but-not-distracting color scheme, my spelling is always spot-on, and it`s generally something you don`t mind sitting through.

LOL.
I remember the first powerpoint I made every page had a different colour scheme, there were different fonts for each bullet, I put so much info on each bullet and then I tried to squese pictures in between word because there was to much text to fit pictures anywhere else I also use all the animations I could. I noticed how horrid it looked and redid it before I presented it. Why don`t other people realize how bad there presentations look? Don`t they even preview them?

I agree with FreddyFerret.

You numbnuts that didn`t think that was funny obviously don`t have a damn clue how to actually operate Microsoft Office, or have any sense of humor. Or never graduated High School.

Any of those.

Ugh; High school Senior Projects and a minority of my college classes.

I especially love when people have paragraphs of information, and have it set to typewriter animation WITH THE NOISE ON!!!

It`s most annoying when the teacher forgets to shut off the speakers when it happens.

Thank God I`m an AS grad now, at least.

I`m guessing that those that didn`t like the comedy of this video didn`t see enough powerpoint presentations to go "UGH" every time a person (in my case my lecturers) puts up a big wall of text in their presentations.

If you haven`t this joke isn`t for you. Come back when you`re in college or working in an office.

That would have been helpful for my classmates this year. A lot of people put horrible color schemes that made you wonder if that person was blind. Some people even put animations that made you feel like you just got off the tilt-a-whirl.

Really funny though. I`ll be sure to bring this up next year when I have another Power Point project.

Every company/school should have someone who can perform this, or a copy of this video. It`s the best way to realize that you look like a doofus when you do these things. My professor`s rendition of this has proven as more useful than whatever class it was.
