I generally do not watch anonymous youtube videos because I don't want to spend several minutes just to see if it is something I'd want to see. So, for the sake of people like me, can you add a summary of what this is about?

It's a mock movie trailer about .NET and Java.

To elaborate, imagine the theme from Perfect Beauty, the family are Microsoft diehards, and their young son discovers Java. Parallels are made to the tribulations of a child telling his parents he's gay, and Java is made out to be a guilty yet perfect pleasure. The trailer promises to be passably entertaining and then goes on for too long as the creators try to throw in too many snipes formatted as reviewer commentary.

Yes, this pretty much kills all the fun watching it. Now you know why I didn't write anything describing it.
