Home Strategy Tactical Tuesday – Beasting with El Presador

Thanks to Adam B. for submitting this featured video.

I don’t know much about Call of Duty, or Halo, or the NFL. It’s my understanding that in all of these games, people get hurt and rowdy macho guys scream a lot. And sure, I know all the rules of football,* and that the Cowboys are currently terrible, but that’s about it. To me, these things are a mystery, not unlike strong nuclear force or the Trinity.

El Presador takes these concepts, injects 400 ccs of steroids attitude, and spits them into your face. May I introduce Item A for your consideration:

Look at this shit. Bitch is all running like he don’t want none.

While this video is 80% hilarity, 15% teabagging, and 5% explicit instruction, there are certainly lessons to be learned here. And although I’m not thoroughly acquainted with Call of Duty, El Presador captures the importance of terrain, flanking, grenades, and humiliation

On his YouTube channel, the Prez hosts tons of “beasting” videos: tongue-in-cheek fragfests featuring a lot of solid gameplay, hilarious commentary, and expressions you wish you patented 10 years ago. Not unlike a certain TF2 Spy, he takes the good and bad of entire rounds of COD or Halo and injects commentary for maximum lulz. The fact that he sounds like he could snap me in half is probably the only distinction between us. Also, his videos are actually popular.

Additionally, he regularly uploads his fantasy football top picks, as well as other NFL-related commentary, play reviews, and more. I don’t follow football closely, but I’ve always found it to be the most interesting sport when it comes to strategic execution.** Paired with some choice obscenities and a voice so low it registers on the Richter Scale, El Presador’s observations go a long way towards a good laugh.

Are you still reading this? What’s wrong with you? Watch his videos now.

*Yes, all of them.
**FACT: Baseball is a terrible sport.

  1. Haha I’ve watched a few of his videos. He just rambles and rants through them all, and it’s hard to tell if he’s serious or leading you along the whole time. I think that’s the beauty of it though – he’s the perfect parody of the “hardcore player”.

    • Precisely. He’s so good at this shtick, you can’t tell if it’s serious or an elaborate act. Or perhaps just played up tenfold for the camera? Comedy gold.

Since I began playing Magic: the Gathering nearly 20 years ago, I've been drawn to blue/red decks. Maybe it's just that I've always favored instants...
