About Haul Videos
Haul videos began years ago. They are videos of shoppers showing what they bought and how much they paid for them. There may be more nuances to the phenomenon, but they aren’t that interesting. There’s an interesting bit about haul videos in act 2 of a recent This American Life. If you want to know more about haul videos, and also want good cause for ripping your eyeballs out, just go YouTube it.
What’s important is that dads buy a lot of stuff and spend a lot of time searching for cool crap to buy our kids that make live more fun and interesting. So why not make dad haul videos? I may never make one again. May do one every week. Time will tell.
