Video: TR Dojo bloopers for 2011

From noisy co-workers and soda machines to flubbed lines and bad attempts at humor, Bill Detwiler shares the TR Dojo 2011 blooper reel.

Another year has past here at TechRepublic, and we've finished another season of TR Dojo. As those of you who hang around until after the credits know, among all that footage there are a lot of bloopers.

Here on TR Dojo, we're once again celebrating the year holiday season with an episode dedicated entirely to my mistakes. You'll see me flub my lines, make a few mostly-failed attempts at humor, and deal with a host of interruptions.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

If you'd like to see more footage of me screwing up, check out the TR Dojo bloopers for 2008, the TR Dojo bloopers for 2009, and TR Dojo bloopers for 2010.

I used to make technical training videos for a (now defunct) field service company. In one video, I said something that just came out funny, and launched into a laughing fit. Productiion had to stop for nearly an hour because everytime I tried to get through that portion I would start laughing again. Sillyness occurs when you're trapped in a studio trying to be serious. Great job Bill.

Next year maybe you can introduce the blooper reel while wearing a green shirt instead.

I think you'd be perfect to host SNL (Saturday Night Live)!

Can you improve the sound, i like to use my pc to watch youtube and other videos on internet, but always when i watch your videos i have to pump up the volume of my speakers. im not a technician in sound but you could give more gain to the sound and some other tweaks. for everything else you are doing a great job!

I didn't hear much of anything after "numbles."

Watch the 2008 Blooper reel - Bill, you're still wearing the same red-and-white striped shirt! (and I can't believe nobody else called you on it yet...) Best of the season to everyone at TR!

make sure it's long-sleeved, so we only see the face and hands. Love that chroma keyer edit: our local TV weather man wore a red-and-green Christmas tie this week. The christmas tree became a "hole" through him, with tinsel and ornaments... ;-)

I know I'm going to mess up and use those in a meeting at some point. Not to mention "Winders". That's how my Grandma, a born and bred hillbilly said windows.

They never called him out because it is not the same shirt, look at the logo on the front left side "our right" of the 2011 video and now look at the 08 Video.
