Blowup part 2 a fake?


Alright, I confess, the second video was a fake. People wanted to see another blowup, so I did my best. Anyway, Tim Knight isn't endorsing me, I was just using him as an example because everyone loves him, unlike me and the rest of us third tier blog traders. Maybe I can be considered a second tier blog with my video, who knows.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a good laugh. I'll have to work on my acting. I actually made 3 videos for the blowup part 2 and settled for this one. There was another one with me crying but it didn't look as good.

I traded today for 10min today, made my profit goal, and now I'm off to work.

John, mate, I know you're still p1ssed with the cheap shots at your blowup from the other day, but why did u fake up a vid? Revenge? Why would u fool with your blog readership. Should we consider your next blogs and vids as faked also?

east coast winner said...

Agreed with the first post.
When you fuck with your reader's minds like this, you will become less sympathetic when something truly bad happen to you.

Not to mention that people will call your first video into question. Did it really happen or did you fake it as well?

Never a good thing to fuck with other people's minds.

You will certainly lose a lot of goodwill and credibility generated by the first one.

Face it: you are a publicity whore.

All these cheap stunts to get people attention.

Go to your nearest psycho-analyst and spend sometime on the couch.

You've got issues, seriously.

My first reaction was: no way, not again!

Then I got distracted with other things and by the time I got back to leaving something soothing, you came out with the explanation.

Good news: you won.

Bad news: you lost one reader, me.

I have no time for fools.

Hey,

Great job with the acting.

It is only fair now to post all three versions.

Let's see those tears.

That's too bad. I feel like a tool, myself, for actually taking pity on John and trying to offer some advice based on my similar experiences. But that's okay. I'm just one of the faceless anons here who can go away easily. Sucks for Dr. Brett, though, who's actually worked hard to make a good name and rep for himself. John probably got a big kick getting Dr. Brett offering pro advice in the comments section. John and Timmy must have bust a gut over that.

Anyway, off to work, John. What's Timmy got you doing this afternoon? Laundry? Picking up his kids from school? Giving the dog a shampoo? At least you don't have to wash his cars this weekend with all the rain you guys have been getting in Palo Alto.

Dude,

All this has been a big joke to you, hasn't it?

Now I question whether your first video is even real.

You faked a loss and got all sort of people feeling sorry for you.

Now you lost all my sympathy and your credibility.

What a schmuck!

LOL. That was funny! I was lauging my ass off. Good stuff. Can you post the other two versions as well? Let people vote on them. Never mind those uptight bastards.

Thanks for the effort in making the video. Great entertainment. Haven't laughed so much in awhile.

I work with you and we all make fun of you, now more than ever. You are a fucking joke, an asshole at work, and we will continue to fuck with you and make sure you get fired here, while acting like your friends.

That's funny! I also shorted MSFT at the close, 300 shares. Market will be going down on Monday.
Good work. Keep it up.

PS: Can you go ahead and post the other 2? I am curious to see your acting chop.

HPT,

That's twisted man. Fucking with my emotion like that, but I gotta admit it was funny.

Anyway, good to see you are doing well.

You know what the most vindicating thing about all this is?

He did it to drive traffic, thats a gimme. So the only way he was capable of succeeding was to essentially cheat, therefore he fails.

So for all of you who genuinely gave him advice and now feel stupid, dont lol. This kid is a loser in all facets of life, he can't even cheat properly.

you fucking dirt bag are a fraud and never even traded real money.

This is just a "failure blog" which seems to be the latest trend. He is trying to be the trader loser version of real estate loser "casey serin" (search google/wiki). The more ridiculous posts he makes the angrier people get, but it all brings in tons of traffic to the site. He will probably make a lot of money off of this blog.

Anonymous said...

HPT,

So the first video was a fake, but you didn't let anybody in on the joke until now.

Subtle! but a tad manipulative. You are quite a modern Machiavelli or is it Svengali (one of those guys who fuck with other people's minds).

Anyway, I regret that I wasted my time sharing my trading experience with you.

Fool me once shame on you.
Fool me twice shame on me.

Won't be reading this sorry blog of an excuse no more. Your betrayal of my trust is completed.
Hasta la vista, baby.

You reminded me of the mom who wrote the fake essay about a dead soldier husband in Iraq so that the kid can get tickets to Hanna Montana concert.

Get what you want by all means necessary.

So what will you do for an encore?

Anonymous said...

Logging into IB account: check
Pulling up the chart: check
Editing the P/L to show loss: check
Acting angry by saying a tons of expletives: check

Earning lasting contempt, pity, and derision by the readers who made the mistake of taking this blog seriously: and check!

Anonymous said...

The first clue that the video is fake can be spotted by anyone who has an IB account: the lack of a request for a security code. Every loggin for IB TradeStation requires numbers and letters from a security matrix card.

As demonstrated in the video, the P/L statement can be captured and then edited, showing gain or loss accordingly.

Well, the show is over, HPT. You might as well shut down this blog. People can be tolerant of a fool, but they hate being the fools. They are not going to be taken twice.

Wow! Look at all the traffic you are getting to this blog by faking it.

Stay tuned for these upcoming episodes of "Tim's Trading Entourage:"

Video #3: Tim's brother, Johnny Drama Queen Knight, has done it again. He's FUCKED, and it looks like the final blow to the IB account. Johnny's in a rage, ripping down the blinds in the best teary eyed, profanity laced vid to ever hit youtube. He manages to utter the word "shit" 494 times in this very special 8 minute video.

Video #4 (to be seen on Tim's blog): Tim's follows with a video where he's in tears from constantly nicking himself while shaving. Tim utters the words "shaving cream" 283 times in this very special 6 minute parody video.

Video #5: Johnny Drama Queen shows us his bloody IB account balance page. The tears roll again because he actually owes IB $12,000 now and he doesn't have it. He browses over to craigslist in search of another job.

Video #6: Johnny Drama Queen appears in his new In-N-Out Burger uniform. Johnny sobs quietly and announces that he's starting his new job in 30 minutes. He says he knows he fucked up big time this time, and he deserves the ridicule and abuse. If you're in the Mountain View area, come and visit him at the drive-thru window at the In-N-Out at Rengstorff Ave. Johnny's got the nightshift this week, M-W-Th-S.

Video #7 to be seen on Tim's blog): Tim drives his gold Lambo up to the In-N-Out Burger drive-thru. Johnny's in uniform and walks up the driver side window with headset on, ready to take Tim's order. Tim grabs Johnny and throws him in the car. "What do you drive, kid?" asks Tim as we hear his tires screach the hell out of there. "Uh, a moped, and I left it back there. Can we go get it?" "Fudge the moped, kid," replies Tim. "I'm going to make you a TRADING GOD!" They pull into the offices of Investools.

Video #8: VICTORY!!! Johnny Drama Queen stars in Investools new infomercial. "I was a loser trader who continually fudged up by making the same newbie mistakes. The trader education classes really work! They really work!!!"

Hmm, what would Johny come up with next to astound us all? How can he top "that" which is considered the summit of his acting career?

A former fan said...

hpt, you should give 'American Idol' a shot. The video is nice but the bloggosphere is just not big enough a space for a talent like yours. If other no-talents can fake it to the final round, I don't see why you couldn't.

the philosopher said...

What is reality and what is fakery? That is the question.

Isn't fakery not the other side of reality?

Anonymous said...

As a penance, Johny has to make a video of himself giving Timmy a blowjob while Timmy is trading.
Hell, I would even pay to see that.

Some people have been way too critical of John here. If he can't make it as a trader, at least he can try acting. What's wrong with diversification?

the blow up artist said...

People who posted here are totally missing the point. The point was not whether John actually lost money or not. His REACTION to losing money was the point.

His video is a variant on the reaction video genre that has became popular since Youtube came into existence. For all we know John might have made $31,000instead of losing $31,000 as he claimed. The truth is inconsequential. It is only the premise or the set up so that we get to see the reaction.

It takes an artist to understand one.
