Gawker: ‘Never Make a Vacation Video’

Gawker has a blunt response to the New York Times’ tips for shooting better vacation videos. Here’s Hamilton Nolan’s three-point argument:

1. Taking a video of your vacation is not as fun as taking your vacation.
2. Watching a video of your own vacation is not as fun as just remembering it, up in the ol’ mind.
3. Watching a video of someone else’s vacation is pure poison.

I think Gawker may have a point—unless, that is, you can pull together a video like one of those in our Video You Must See collection.
