There seems to be this weird underground movement of nerds filming themselves opening newly bought electronics and posting the footage on the internet. I know... I didn't really understand it myself at first. But apparently some people derive pleasure from watching others open Playstation 3 boxes. In fact, there's even a website dedicated to this activity, which has been given the name "unboxing" by the Worldwide Council of People Living in Their Parents' Basements.
