This video is really amusing and fun to watch, or at least I found it so.  Old boy is just trying to get through his day, but the shoddy consumer items in his life keep failing him, so what does he do? He crafts high-quality replacements out of bamboo! (Using simple steel and battery/electric hand tools that appear to be the only non-shoddy non-bamboo things he has.)  He's kind of a ham actor and his scenarios are contrived, but the craftsmanship is gripping and fun to watch:



I don't think you'll see them embedded here, but watching on Youtube, the irony of being interrupted with Home Depot commercials every few minutes was particularly piquant.
