Hookah.org Official Video Reviews

Recommended Posts

Seriously, if what we need is pretty girls making hookah videos, I know a few porn stars that are prettier and would probably do the videos for me if I ask them to....just saying.

 

We should get them started. haha

 

Let's give these girls a chance for a few videos and see how it goes. Like I said we can have them read blog articles and learn about hookah too. Also they'll only be doing flavor reviews not giving smoking tips

I cringed the entire video. They really don't know much at all editing wise and hookah culture wise. So what if they have a glass hookah haha that does not make you an expert. You just have money to flaunt and bought a pipe purely on the looks, we were all just talking about the versatility of glass pipes in the smoking right now.

 

They need to smoke more than just the one brand that every beginner clings to. Like you said DD, they need to be well versed on molassel and tobamel alike. Same with accessories.

 

I don't want to read their blog now that you say that hahaha

LOL....well I didn't want to sound like a prick or anything, I just have opinions. I know I was a bit harsh, but just because you have a camera doesn't mean that you should make videos.

Their blog doesn't have much, but what they do have made me literally yell at my screen for reading what they wrote. Now by all means I'm not a hookah pro, and what I do know I learned from you fine folks in this blog. I told Nima that when I got my first hookah. I landed on this page when I was searching for help and have never left.

I personally feel that if I started making videos now, that I would feel I'm being pretentious. I want to be able to at least look like I have a clue of what I'm doing because people will be able to tell. I make my money from video editing but I've yet to make my first hookah video. I would die if I put the wrong information out there.

Again that's just me though. From all the years of filming and editing instructional videos for the corporate world, I've learned that one wrong bit of information can break you. If you only knew the times that a video was done and the CEO is watching it and saying that the information the speaker mentioned was wrong. The whole scene has to be re-shot because it will make the company look bad. Well, I feel the same way about making youtube videos....why am I ranting? LOL

I do agree that it would be better if they knew more about hookahs. Believe it is very hard to find people to do reviews (consistent and reliably) - Paul is one of a kind.

 

How about I get them to join the form and us here (constructively) teach them about hookahs and help them make the reviews better.

I didn't read their blog, I will in the morning though. You're right that they should learn other brands. What do you mean know the difference? Did they use the words interchangeably? I've seen others do that but I believe that isn't incorrect since different areas and people call hookah different things.

Haha, I don't want to know how you get them to make the video :P

I agree with you Dude glass hookahs are just a status symbol. You can look at large KMs or Nours the same way though just a whole lot cheaper.

No, there was a question somebody asked them and they didn't understand it and responded in a totally different manner than what they person asked for. Technically it should be interchangeably because they mean the same thing. Just don't say that shisha is not hookah and it's wrong. Makes them look like they need to read up on their hobby before answering people's questions. Their video as a whole turned me off though. I wouldn't watch them again. I mean look at hookahnucku, he's freaking entertaining and I enjoy watching his videos.

So I'm not going go go into too much details on how I became friends with a lot of them, but two of them are literally my best friends in real life and we became friends because they had some issues with some of their work, so some guy I've never heard of before told them that they should get in touch with me to fix the work the other guy had messed up, because I was affordable and reliable. They got in touch with me, liked the way I edit and clean up the colors so they kept me to do random edits for them now and then.

So yeah, if I asked them to do hookah videos for me, I'm 100% they won't have a problem with it and won't say no. They've helped me do some promo stuff before for a client I had in Chicago. Non-nude work of course.

LOL say when Nima. :)

You are right, and of course I'm willing to give them a chance. They have to learn somewhere. I was just concerned that if we are calling ourselves hookah geeks, that we should know our subject.

I'm sure their knowledge will grow as they practice more and more.

Nice. Do they know much about hookahs? Would they be willing to do (paid) reviews for us?

ABSOLUTELY!!!!! We are a bunch of friendly geeks. It would be awesome if they ask us questions to help them in their endeavors.... and these comments would have to be deleted too. I'm down for that because we don't want to hurt their feelings.

I'll talk to them and have them create an account on the forum.

I was serious. If your friends are good with hookahs, can we get them to make reviews for us? I'm happy to pay them per video.

I love the idea of the pumpkin hookah bowl. What I was going to do was just empty one out and put my whole hookah base and all inside of the pumpkin. less work that way. LOL
