YouTube’s favorite comedic maker, Simone Giertz, is at it again. In this video, she continues her strange love affair with out-sized scissors by making a scissors desk lamp with lights inside that are revealed when you open it.
I think it would’ve been cooler if the switch had been built into the scissors so that when you open them, the lights go on and cut off when it’s closed. But that’s a picky quibble. This is another fun and entertaining Simone build with lots of funny one-liners.
Warning: Salty adult language and lots of innuendo ahead.
