As of right now, a guy who goes by Conrad de Argentina has uploaded 6,174 videos of himself smoking various pipes in different funny hats, set to a myriad of orchestral movie soundtracks. He averages around 15 a day, and some of the video descriptions also list his current wardrobe, which frequently includes Levi’s and some sort of weird glove. At first we figured he was on some sort of Nayland Blake trip, but we emailed him requesting an interview just to cover our bases. Turns out that a) our original assumptions couldn't be farther from the truth and b) Conrad is a man of few words and great honor who seems to be trying to hasten the Reaper's approach so he can join his deceased wife in heaven. Confounded? Stay close as we talk to this man of many videos and few words…
Vice: Hey Conrad. What is your favorite thing to smoke?
Conrad: Tobacco out of my tobacco-smoking pipes.
You don't say. Do you have problems with your wife because of the smell?
I never had any problems with my wife Ana María, who is in heaven next to God.
Do you have some sort of oral fixation?
No, I do not have an oral fixation.
When did you start smoking your pipe?
I started when I was 18 years old as a university student.
When did you start uploading videos to YouTube? What type of audience are you shooting for?
I started a year ago. My videos are appropriate for everyone, except minors. The videos are dedicated to my wife, my friends, and my subscribers.
Why do you set your videos to movie soundtracks?
I like movie soundtracks.
Why do you wear a glove?
Gloves, to hit it, another photo; for the videos.
I have absolutely no idea what this means.
