Guy smacking cosplayers in the face with his mic is strangely amusing

Cosplayers usually love being filmed and interviewed, but this probably isn't what any of them had in mind.

There's a standard of no physical violence at conventions. And that's a good thing. All those people packed into tight quarters could very easily create hostility.

But there's an unexpected downside that we hadn't anticipated -- Greg Benson of Mediocre Films repeatedly slapping cosplayers in the mouth with his microphone.

Oh, sure, it's hilarious, and there are a number of cosplayers who immediately take the joke and run with it. But there are also a slew of others who are visibly angry about taking it on the mouth repeatedly. If only violent comeuppance were allowed, then this bit could have ended the way it was clearly meant to -- with Greg nursing a black eye.
