Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett left befuddled by iPod (video)

jim-haslett-ipod

It’s not the funniest thing ever, but the sight of Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett being left befuddled by an iPod at a Best Buy certainly is worth a chuckle.

Apparently, Haslett was perusing some electronics at the Best Buy in Sterling, Va. and after activating the record function on an iPod, was rendered incapable of figuring out how to stop the dadgum high-end piece of highfalutin technology from recording. I use the word “dadgum” because I envision any older person who is left intimidated by modern technology should be forced to use that word when explaining the perplexing doohickey.

Thankfully, an individual who possesses a firm grasp on the ins and outs of how to record video on hand-held devices has documented Haslett’s struggles. It’s an amusing thing to watch. And as far as Best Buy is concerned, it’s funnier and probably would have been a far more effective means of promotion than the company’s Super Bowl commercial starring Amy Poehler. “Are you as confused by technology as Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett? Come to Best Buy. We’ll help you out.”

End scene.
