My original definition of lightweight backpacking included not needing gymnastic maneuvers, aid from inanimate object (rocks, chairs, trees) or grunting and bellowing of any kind when putting on my pack.
Actually either the guy in the vid is pretty strong, or his pack is not THAT bad. I've seen worse! But it still makes me laugh that an educational video is needed.
I don't know about the dead hooker thing, but something about the shape of his pack, plus the volume does feel off to me. Really does have that "box-in-barton-fink" aura to it.
