As long as YouTube videos have been the behemoth of entertainment that they are, videos of people opening boxes full of stuff has undeniably been the zenith of perfection through this particular artistic medium. The smell of the tape, the thrill of that first flap swinging open to birth its sweet contents; yes, there’s nothing like an unboxing to get the blood pumping or catch the eye of someone you fancy.
So when Capcom ferried over just such a cuboidal vessel, we felt it absolutely imperative that we record the entire event so as to document this moments act to inspire future generations. So please, allow yourselves to take a moment from your hectic lifestyle to breathe deeply and indulge in the calm audio-visual splendour of a man opening some cardboard full of Monster Hunter stuff. Thank you Capcom, and thank you, the viewers, for joining us on this momentous occasion.
