Eating Video Featured on LonelyPlanet.tv!

I spent 3 days in August shooting this video for Lonely Planet.tv

In the video I take ride on the back of moto-taxis all over the streets of Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) in search of breakfast, lunch, dinner, desert and coffee. Please, let me know what you think.

Wow, I really like it Anton! It has a good pace to it. You're never on one shot for too long. And if you are stuck on a shot, you did something interesting to break it up...like the fast motion. I think it's probably my favorite one of your travel videos. You're my hero.

Woo-hoo skinny shirtless Anton! Sorry, had to be awkward. Great video - watch out Anthony Bourdain! Mmm, I love Vietnamese coffee, I had it in a restaurant in Longview once. My favorite moment of the video is "Reaction in 3, 2, 1." Haha, I watched that part twice. Congrats!

LOVE the 3-2-1 ice cream reaction! of course the rest of the video is great, but the reaction is my favorite.

I was eating a bagel well watching this and it just didn't compare to the food you were eating.

Sweet video though.

You guys are the best friends in the world. Thank you for all of your nice comments. The video in all it's simplicity is the result of a fairly exhausting trip around the world and quite a long editing process back home. It warms my heart to hear all of your kind encouragement. Thank you.

I agree with all here: this was a quality video! You are incredibly talented.
I think you've sparked a little travel flame in me now. I have never really gone too far from where I was born, but now I want to see Vietnam in the very least...
