It’s a fine day and you’re enjoying what you love: photographing wildlife. Then out of the blue, someone drops in to spoil your day. With an endless barrage of ridiculous questions and remarks that fluctuate between the mundane and the obnoxious, the pretentious nature lover manages to kill your appetite for good photography. You’re saved only by a phone call that distracts the intruder while you make your exit, quietly, to some place safer. Sound like déjà vu? Well, if it does you are not alone:
In this humorous video, Tony Northrup plays the role of the bemused wildlife photographer, behind an intimidating looking lens painted in camouflage colors, while Chelsea Northrup assumes the role of the pretentious nature lover, absolutely determined to confuse the living day lights out of the poor photographer. Her interjections include the following gems:
- “Wow, that lens looks expensive!”
- My iPhone gets really good pictures anyway.”
- “I like that your lens matches your outfit.”
- “My uncle’s got an eagle’s nest in his yard.”
- “It’s not like you own the spot.”
- “I’m taking Cowboy for a walk, ‘cause he’s like he’s just got diagnosed with doggie introvert syndrome.”
- “Do you, like, just teach yourself or do you know what you’re doing?”
