Oh, awesome, more of this guy. Freaking, yes. Dude is the best kind of bonkers--the kind that's rich, has a meaningful grudge, and has the knowledge and wherewithal to know what to do about the grudge.

This is hilarious, but am I the only one confused as to why there was an age gate on this? It's not an exclusive trailer or anything, it's a report on a youtube video. There's a lot of swearing, but it's no worse than anything that comes out of either Yahtzee or Jim Sterling's mouth on a weekly basis.

Even simulated drug use is call for an age gate in most communities.

My guess it would be the bath salts and foot fetish.

Guy lickin some lady foot; AGE GATE!!!

Mr. McAfee has far more a sense of humor than I credited him. He gets big props, which is nice because before I heard that he has some really creepy interests.

Since one of my non-superhero identities is a tech-support guy for Windows, I actually know the process to this. It's as follows:

~ Go to your Control panel >> Programs and Features (Windows 7 [1])
~ One at a time, find all programs that have the word McAfee somewhere in the title.
~ Click on Uninstall (or Uninstall/Change or Change)[2]
~ Follow the pop-out dialog.
~ You may have to reboot after each uninstallation. If it prompts you, reboot.
~ If you want to be thorough, you may want to use a registry cleaner or a garbage-file scourer, but this really shouldn't be necessary unless there's a software ambiguity conflict.

Enjoy your anti-virus-free continued existence, and remember that safe websurfing habits will stop most malware attacks far better than any anti-virus software in existence.

[1] In Windows XP it's Add and Remove Programs, and in Windows 8 it's Programs and Features UNLESS you are uninstalling a metro app in which case you have to find it on your start menu and click on the Uninstall charm. Or maybe it's not a charm. I'm not kidding.
[2] You can also right-click on a program and choose Uninstall or whatever from the context menu.

Age gates are one of the stupidest web regulatory policies in existence. Since Facebook excludes people under the age of thirteen, it really teaches young kids to lie.

Then again, the point may be to teach our children young that in our society we are encouraged to fib in order to keep up appearances and sustain convenience for society.

Lying through age gates today; padding resumes tomorrow.

Ingenious!

Hell whenever I just come on one I scroll randomly through the years until I get to the 5s or 6s. always january first though. I am old enough, the site knows I am old enough, but for some reason their webmaster hasnt quite seen fit to attach the age gate to our birth date in the accounts yet.

Also obligatory sex joke:
"Honest honor, she said on the age gate that she was 18!"

Not really. Everything except the swearing was PG-13 fare, and it was all pretty much par for the course on this site. Or as the guy below you put it:

"its like that time I hired that Bangkok prostitute to do my taxes while I fucked my accountant." haha, best line I've heard in a while.

Because The Escapist makes $$$ off of Jim Sterling and Yahtzee, they don't make money off of this guy. Although I still think Age Gates are the stupidest inventions in the internet, you're better off putting a "Warning: This Video Includes X" warning, it'll probably be more effective since there won't be as much of a forbidden fruit syndrome.

I guess, but they're probably making as much or more per page hit on this vid than they do on Yahtzee and Jim's videos, since they don't have to pay him for the content. The warning labels kind of do make sense, but you know how touchy parents can be.

"What do you mean I should be supervising him? That's what I bought this subscription to Netflix for."

That was funny. And I am sure he had plenty of fun making it. Something like this would be perfect if I ever hit the lottery or something.

Needs to work on his delivery. This is why we have actors (can't believe I just found a use for actors).

As well as flee to Belize make a drug lab get hooked on Bath salts also claim a conspirisy after my neighbour is murdered and i'm the prime suspect.
I Imagine that in the same situation i'd do the exact same thing.

About 40% certain those were real bath salts, 90% certain those are real prostitutes lucky the video ended when it did as i'm fairly certain he still nailed them and I'm not a fan of old guy sex.

Am I the only one that likes his McAfee software-seriously why all the hate it isn't that bad -_-

Anyway funny video enjoyed it alot-those girls were hot and sexy :D

Him being accused for Murder makes it a little harder to enjoy it though.

Captcha:tesla coil

His software functions more like malware than an anti-virus, and I legitimately hate it, but I have to give credit where credit is due and say that video was hugely entertaining.

Him and the Virgin Mobile guy should do a thing together.

Hero in a half shell:
Have you checked the credit names of the... lovely ladies cast in this production?

Treasure, Carmella, Diamond, Kimberly, Monroe, Bianca, Quincey, Sasha... and no surnames.

I think he used actual prostitutes to play the part of his pretend prostitutes.
And oddly enough that makes perfect sense considering the rest of this video.

Well, I do remember reading that for the Nick Cage movie "Lord of War", it was a lot cheaper to buy actual weapons from actual arms dealers (that the movie guys had to give back within a certain time because said weapons had already been paid for) than it was to find that many fake guns.

...

...And now I can't stop thinking of Nicholas Cage as a crazy drugged-up pimp.

I'm sure the age gate is there because the video involves reckless use of firearms. ;-)

McAfee can be uninstalled through add/remove programs, but it always comes back. Nuking it from orbit is the only way to be sure. If no nukes are available an SMG works pretty good as well.

I saw this last night on my social medium of choice, brilliant video.

It might be easier and cheaper to use real prostitutes instead of fake ones. And I imagine it would be a good gig for someone of that profession.

...strippers, actually... though some could possibly be prostitutes as well (fairly common practice, and one job naturally leads into the other). Stage names are apparently quite convenient for video credits. I've... met... one or two of 'em (in a professional setting, of course). The club they work at is mentioned in the credits.

Also, I tried their uninstallation instructions... wound up getting my dick caught in a ceiling fan. Might have helped if I were running Windows with the damn thing installed in the first place.

Ah I see, you were caught up in the glamour of it all, an easy mistake to make.

Are there anyone in particular you can recommend ... for accounting purposes?

Quite a few programs try to install "MacAfee free scan". It's basically very intrusive adware in my book and genuinely difficult to remove and block for average users.

Also, the fuck did i just watch? That man is a genius. A mad, possibly homicidal genius but a genius non the less.

This video is the best thing to come out of McAfee Antivirus. Shine on you crazy, crazy diamond.

My issues with McAfee software aren't so much with the software itself as they are with the way they try to fuck you up the ass by charging you for yearlong subscriptions that run out after 6 months.

It probably has to do with the implications of illegal drug usage.

Now that's a headline.

Also, what the hell is going on? In general. What?

I have no idea what I just watched. I think that man may be crazy...

Holy SHIT, have you guys clicked the link about that whole "murder charge" thing? Do that, then click on the link in THAT article about him being "wanted for questioning in Belize". If you haven't read these two articles, you have no idea how fucking insane this guy's life is. This video barely scratches the surface. He makes Charlie Sheen look like Mister Goddamn Rogers.

Fanghawk:

Reports indicate that as McAfee's herbal company stalled, he became increasingly erratic. He found himself estranged from other American expatriates in the country, and stated that he'd hired criminals and drug traffickers for his security staff. More recently, McAfee reportedly began posting on the Russian-hosted website Bluelight about his efforts to purify bath salts, a drug known for its hallucinogenic effects. In April, police arrested McAfee and led a raid on his compound that uncovered a chemistry lab and an entire armory of weapons. After discovering that everything was licensed and legally obtained, McAfee was reluctantly released.

WHAT. I guess he wasn't fucking around with that Bath Salts joke.

Fanghawk:
According to Wired, McAfee is hiding from the authorities while proclaiming his innocence. The article explains that when McAfee saw the police approaching his property, he quickly buried himself in sand, placing a cardboard box over his head so he could breathe. "It was extraordinarily uncomfortable," he said, "But they will kill me if they find me."

McAfee claims that he knows nothing about the shooting, and that his position as prime suspect is due to a government vendetta against him. McAfee also claims that the authorities poisoned his guard dogs. "The coast guard dropped off a contingent of black-suited thugs at 10:30 tonight at the dock next door," McAfee said, "They dispersed on the beach. A half hour later all of my dogs had been poisoned. Mellow, Lucky, Dipsy, and Guerrero have already died."

Belize's Gang Suppression Unit denies any attempt to poison McAfee's guard dogs. "This guy amazes me every day," unit head Marco Vidal said. "We don't have anything personal against Mr. McAfee. There is no need for us to poison dogs."

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT.

Wasn't this guy being arrested for murder this year or was that all dealt with?

...looks like I'm going to have to get McAfee Antivirus, just so I can go through the process of uninstalling it.

This caught my interest, and so I looked it up (not so hard, it's a reference linked from Wikipedia). Quoting from the article:

article:
"In a way, my film is a how-to about becoming an arms dealer," Niccol told the New York Daily News. "During the making of it, I needed guns in the Czech Republic, and it was cheaper to use real guns than replicas. I bought 3000 Kalashnikovs and then sold them back at a loss.

"I wouldn't make a very good arms dealer."

He could not afford to destroy them because he had a small budget, but he said: "In South Africa, we did cut some guns in half to stop them from getting into circulation.

Too bad the article has a pro-guncontrol slant, but hey, it's 21st century, unbiased journalism is uncool.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. He should get together with the 5-second-films guys.

Saw this vid a few days ago. Very funny. Although, I think he can't be that rich if those are the best looking women he could hire for the video.

This is a good point, considering all the swearing Jim does also.

I'm pretty sure I just watched a guy give the entire internet the middle finger in its own language. With youtube.

Shine on you crazy bastard, I'm still not ever installing your terrible anti-virus tool.

hooblabla6262:
This man is a genius and I love him.
<3
Seriously, he should release monthly videos.

I would suscribe that is for sure.

OT: I honestly think this guy has just had enough and decided to make a statement. The issue being, I can't discern what that statement actually is.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT.

In all honesty we can't say one way or the other. Belize isn't exactly known for its upstanding police officers, and there is proof that they have had him donate large (expensive) items in the past so it may be true (I can't currently find the article I pulled that from, so take it with a grain of salt). We also know that when the gang suppression unit raided his place, he was in bed with his Girlfriend, so there is a witness (albeit how reliable we also don't know) to that event as well. The fact that he sought political asylum instead of relying on his supposed connections with major drug cartels also tells us a few things (why go to another country where talks will be had of extradition instead of going to one of the major crime families that seem to be able to avoid arrest without many problems) about how juiced up these charges may be.

We do know that John is responsible for making bath salts and other "legal" drugs and entheogens, so that much of the issue is true. Though he can't be arrested on those charges alone in Belize (in the US he could be though, as any substance sold with the intention of being used as a drug, is considered a drug). I have a feeling that the truth is less crazy than the stories we hear, and lays between the Belize Police's story and John's story.

Yaaaaay I helped! :D

Though personally, I'm having trouble seeing a "pro-gun-control" bias from anything other than one sentence the guy directing the movie said, though in fairness the lack of article length may have something to do with that. The movie itself is less about "guns being evil" than it is about "gunrunning will ruin your life".

Also, I like your phrase "unbiased journalism". You almost made me believe that ever existed for a second. For, like, one whole second.
