Fanmail Vid: Opening a Goulet Package

Link to YouTube for more viewing options.

Bernard is a customer of ours in France, and sent us this video he made unpacking his GPC order. Some of you may recognize my overzealous packing, haha! It’s a fun and creative video, great job Bernard! If anyone else has fun or creative ideas for showing off your stash, shoot me an email and we can share it 😉 ~Brian Goulet

Dear Brian, dear Rachel,
I am so excited about all I am discovering with you! I am a newbie in the pen and ink’s world and it is such a fun! During the last Write Time at 9! you wished that people should send some pictures or vids of the packaging and so on… Here is one! I had my Iphone when my 11 year old daughter came with the inks and pens you had sent to me… this is not a professional movie but I think you and Rachel will find it cool… I had a lot of fun doing it… I know you will appreciate the epilogue.

Best regards and thanks again for the good work and the entertainment!

  • That was awesome. I actually found myself bobbing along to the music and I loved the fist slam at the end. Thanks for sharing!

  • Watching this opening of your wrapping reminded me of the scene in Independence Day, when the Brent Spiner character slices opens the alien's casing!

    When my RSS reader told me there was a post this morning, this was the last thing I expected to find. I have a sudden urge to do math proofs on a whiteboard and spend more money. 😀 Cool video.

  • I love the overzealous packaging!
    This was great! 🙂

  • This is a great video and I had to laugh so hard when the fist came down! I watched the Nathans Video on Bernanke ink last night, so it was fresh in my memory.
    It is a fantastic video!

  • When his daughter started to open the package, it reminded me so much of my own experience. I started out with my hands before grabbing a cutter to open through the layers upon layers of packaging.

  • Excellent video! The ending made me cackle with laughter. Bravo Bernard!

  • You know, I've often thought – this would be a great prank video – if one of Brian's packages could survive an NFL football game subbing as a football? I really think it would! Love your customer service AND this video!

  • @Nicky, love the fist at the end! I cracked up when I saw that 😉

    @Brian, haha! Wow, I haven't thought about that movie in years!

    @Nathaniel, you get urges to do math proofs? I cannot relate 😛 Though something about the Waterase makes me feel like I should be doing smart-people things!

    @Rita, par for the course for me 😉 I'm kind of particular about my packing!

    @Sven, Nathan's a hoot sometimes, I was practically in stitches the first time I saw his fist-pounding video!

    @César, I know you like the way I pack!

    @Speck, I'm glad you like the vid, I thought it was worth sharing.

    @Maria, haha! I don't know about that, but maybe! I've thought about doing a 'Jackass' style video where I throw packages off my roof, hit them with baseball bats, and things like that. It would probably be very entertaining!

  • So different from how I open my packages – I carefully remove the tape to preserve the bubble wrap for re-use! Excellent BSB showcase. The fist slam cracked me up!
    I too have a sudden urge to visit my Goulet Pen wishlist and place an order….

  • That's funny…the urge…to click…the…wish…list…must not…oh nooooo!

  • Nathaniel

    Yes, yes I do. The cheese slid off my cracker a long time ago. Perhaps, smart people should do Waterase things. 🙂

    Basset here.

    I think the fist slam's going to be a trademark of sorts; would like to see that picked up in other vids as well.

  • @Rhea, definitely. For anyone else out there, if you're gonna go tearing into your package with a knife, just make sure you don't cut your bounty!

    @Maria, haha, fight the urge, fight the urge, fight the….ah well, just go for it 😉

    @Nathaniel, cheese slid off the cracker, that's a new one for me!

    @Basset, I think you may see some fist-slamming coming from me in the future if nothing else, just as an inside joke.

  • Awesome video! Cracked me up real good!

  • Thank you Bernard, for producing such a clever, funny video. Thank you Brian for sharing it, the punch line at the end sure was punchy 😉

  • I love the overzealous packaging!
    This was great! 🙂

  • Aw, that's a cute video!
