    One of the wankiest setups I've ever seen. Almost like a company gave me a $1000 projector, so let's spend as little as possible of my own money to set it up (and not even worry about basic child safety). I don't know if this is the kind of advertising LG is looking for, cause this looks like utter crap here my friend. I don't see anything here that would make me consider this projector (as someone who found this video cause I'm in the market for one now) as something I would want to buy or even learned anything about the product.

    Dude you did it all wrong, you should move your bed about 1ft from the wall then mount the projector to back of the head board so you can project on to ceiling ! trust me you'll thank me later. Its more comfortable laying flat on your back and looking straight up.

    This thing's hanging over your child's head while he sleeps. Can you please attach the shelf into studs? Also, stop tilting the projector forward where it could slide off.
    BTW: Now you have to make one for your daughter.

    Interestingly not his kid, that is just some stranger. Linus broke into his home and built a fort. The parents are at work and the nanny is tied up in a closet. No shits are given by the kid, he is having a great time.
