DIY Book Folding – Man Vs. Youtube #7


What’s up everybody Rob here and you’re watching Man versus YouTube Book folding? Book sculpture? Book art? Are you even aware that this is happening? That this is going on? I didn’t even know they made books anymore I thought everything was on Audible Well a bunch of you have been suggesting it Uh, but really on top of all that My best friend is getting married in Florida this weekend I am his best man And I wanted to make this kinda maybe like a cool little book for him And I saw this project and I was like “sweet” This would be awesome Anyways, it’s a little cheesy but that’s this f*cking weeks project Step one Find some books I don’t know Borders is closed I went to Goodwill’s antique section and and picked up a few of their heaviest titles Death Beam Armageddon Twilight And the Steve Job’s book Classics Then I started watching all the book folding YouTube videos There are a lot of them They are very confusing “Fold them back first” “here” “Just look for me” “I’m just showing you…” You have to do a bunch of photoshop sh*t And a ton of different calculations and I don’t know Folding techniques? Am I the only one whose brain just like shuts down when people start talking about this? I feel like I’m and idiot “I’m not gonna come across now to fold it” “No I’m not” “I wanted to show” “How to do the hard folds” I honestly skipped the first half of this tutorial and just bought a template from somebody The best part is that they have one of Florida Which totally fit with the occasion Done Consider it bought It’s got all the fold line on top All the lines Everything printed out this should be pretty easy Now I will use the Steve Job’s book as it was large enough to fit the design and it had the right amount of pages This particular image takes 450 pages to create So I had to do a little math and I got the spot where I had to start First, you have to line it, uh and leave a fold at the top of your page Uh, that way so everything lines up straight The instructions were a little vague But essentially You slip this piece of paper into the book and you fold back each of the pages according to the width of the lines So you just fold this side down and then you fold this side down And then you just fold like, like there’s no tomorrow Hey you know maybe there is no tomorrow I don’t know The robot apocalypse is gonna happen any day now Ugh Florida Am I right? Fun fact I was born and raised In Miami, Florida Got out of there as soon as I could Have you seen the most recent headlines? “Florida Man Turns Himself In For Murdering Imaginary Friend” Look at the sadness on his face Flordia man claims to be the first person to vape semen And probably like my my most favorite This guy claims that he was dancing on this police car to ward off vampires Alright, back to the project I have successfully completed Florida Alright, you ready to see this? So am I Duh dum dah duh Huh Eh, well I guess that you can see it Pretty shotty workmanship, that’s for damn sure What I couldn’t have folded these any better? Jesus Well that’s not going to the wedding And why isn’t it even? It’s completly uneven One side of the book has all the pages the other doesn’t any of the pages I feel like it was supposed to be bigger Uh, I I definately didn’t fold 450 pages So I did something wrong I just don’t know what And Steve I see you over there Just stop judging me Well, I saw another technique where this guy, uh just drew the design onto the book? So I busted out the book Death Beam Uh, written by this guy I drew a pretty simple image and folded along the ink marks that I made on the pages This made things go by a lot faster However, I was using the entire book as the image so it took a little eh it took a lot of time All of this just took a really long time And now for the reveal Duh dah duh dah Nope That does not look like the intended object That technique is out the window Garbage These are immediately going into the the garbage Yeah I know It looks like a backwards Texas Steve Thanks Dick I mean really Who reads books anymore anyways? Fact You never have to read ever again Have you ever been to Audible.com? They read all of the books to you Oh but I like turning the pages and I like the way it feels Get over it They’re closing all of the libraries The robots will soon be taking over and they will not give a sh*t about your precious, little book collection They’re heavy They’re a wase of f*cking space You wanna hear something else a little bit nuts Audible .com is sponsoring this episode What? Somebody was crazy enough to give me money to talk about the robot apocalypse I have honestly never done a sponsorship before but I use Audible everyday so so I was like “why not?” So if you want to support the channel and want me to make more content go over to Audible.com /Czar Sign up and you’ll get a free audio book right off the bat In all actuality I’m really serious about the robot apocalypse In my brain It goes Dinosaurs human beings robots that’s it And this is getting real weird but if you wanna read something real crazy read Ray Kurzwells’ “The Singularity is Near” I already checked It’s available on Audiable Read that have your mind blown open and get back to me on the Terminator robot apocalypse Until then

  1. I love reading books and to me it's not about turning the pages or somethin' like that.To me it is the enjoyment of seeing how creative people can be and the accomplishment when I read a heavy book,or just how you expand your own dictionary.I know that a lot of people hate reading,but this is just my opinion.

  2. Did you just say that books are a waste of space? Well I think you are a waste of space, as well as a waste of perfectly good carbon, oxygen, and natural recources. also, your brain isn't a waste of space, because there is almost no brain to waste space with!

  3. I don't get why people are worried about robots taking over literally just throw a cup of water on them and they malfunction and you're done
