Check out the video above, created by singer/songwriter Brent "brentalfloss" Black and animator Sean De Pew, in which a top hat-wearing handheld makes the case for holding our collective horses because of inevitable price drops, software problems and more.

Late last year, brentalfloss used puppets in a video to explain Final Fantasy's mage classes. That one didn't have a cameo by Admiral Ackbar, though.
