Funny Story: I walked out of the bedroom, into the TV room the other day... turned on the TV, and saw my wife brushing her teeth on the local news. I said; "Honey? Why are you brushing your teeth on the six oclock news???"
She glggled out of control and eventually told me it was for a medical story.
These are shots from Final Cut Pro HD. The software she used to edit the story, with the toothbrush video.
