Sometimes the vigorous gestures, broad smiles and name-dropping are appropriate, sometimes they're just weird. Reason highlights Tony Robbins warning his followers about (what he feels is) an upcoming market crash. Even though the subject is grim and needs serious conversation, Tony gives it like it was something to help you lose weight.
Bonus experiment: watch it with the sound off and see if you can tell if the topic is a grim one.
Update: This is by no means a polemic against Mr. Robbins. While I don't listen to him or read his books, I'm glad he does what he does. One guy telling large audiences to believe in themselves and strive to accomplish great things is worth any number of bloggers like me who spend their time grousing about how this or that is all screwed up.
