Just to keep everyone in the loop. My roasting didn't go well down with Orbea.

Their marketing department has had my video blocked in Spain!

On hambini's scale they were ahead of the bulk. That's basically high praise.

Sachin, at least you are getting some attention, and people are starting to take you more seriously.

Its a bit of joke that marketing departments think that they can sensor things on the web. What they need to do is to correct the issues

With that language you're a very easy target and it's your fault. If you'd speak in a more civilized manner there would be no chance of reasoning to have such video blocked.

I can download it using a computer located in Spain, so that block seems to be gone now.

I also got a video clip from a spanish user with a load of orbea frames looking like they were going to landfill.

I'm not sure if the entire thing is related.

I find some of his claims about the responses to those videos to be lacking credibility. The marketing department of Orbea got the Spanish telecom regulator to ban his video? Really? Did they work in cahoots with the Flo lawyers who sent him that alleged cease-and-desist letter?

And to be clear, I enjoy his videos - he is the second-most entertaining Sachin I have seen on screen. The info there is quite educational. But there is also certain lack of credibility when it comes to his conclusions and sweeping statements, and i would hesitate to form any conclusions about specific brands purely based on his videos.

That said, keep it going, Hambini (but perhaps consider trimming your videos down to 25-30 minutes? Way too much faffing there).

I took it to mean the the Spanish operations of Orbea have blocked it internally. Rather than the whole of Spain.

Good shout. Probably filed in category "Adult 18+" in their traffic filtering software. To be fair, Hambini's vids would get an R rating should someone decide to show them on the big screen.
