Check out this video...

Is there possibly anything that can top this for sheer nerdiness?

As much as those people are complete nerds that guy doing the interview came off as a complete ass.

How so?  He didn't do much more than stand there and look confused... which is exactly the reaction I would have in that situation.

Some of them took it way too seriously, but it sounded like a lot of them were just having fun with it.  I especially liked the guy with the kitten.

Watch it with no sound and keep an eye on the Kwoon guy's facial expressions.  Absolutely hilarious!

  His little sidekick at the beginning is cute.  What is she supposed to be? (No sound, remember? smile )

The one girl who says "I'm a doll...I'm a battle doll", I kept waiting for the line "...and this one time at band camp....".

As much as I think they are a bunch of weirdos I gues I'm just in to the live and let live philosophy in life.  They're not hurting anybody or anything but their chances to get laid.  He went in to an anime convention for the sole purpose of making fun of them.  Now if those nerds had been out in public it would have been fair game.  Perhaps "ass" was too strong of a word and just not-a-very-nice-guy would have sufficed.  Besides, it's not like they're bottom-dwelling furries. smile

Cosplayers can't be nerds.   Cute girls cosplay.   Cute girls can't be nerds, can they?  They couldn't when I was young.

Maybe times have changed.

Disclaimer: I posted this before watching that video.  Times have changed.

Where exactly was he openly making fun of them?  I guess that's what I'm not seeing... making confused (yet funny) faces while they're going on about being "destroyer of souls" and whatnot isn't mean spirited, IMO.

Yes, but not all cosplaying females are cute.  I'd wager that most of them aren't - it's just that the few cute ones tend to get the lion's share of the attention.
