Microwave Crisp Maker Review Ashens

The rare Ashens "Ashenthology 1" DVD, rumored to contain the missing clip.

Dr. Stuart Ashens is a popular YouTube video creator that reviews cheap electronics, items from poundland stores (the British equivalent of a dollar store), and other cheap crap. This is usually done with just his hands visible in front of a brown sofa. He currently has over 1 Million subscribers and over 134,628,254 page views on Youtube.

In 2007, he did two videos for Gizmodo's YouTube account, which vanished once the account was deleted in 2014. Ashens recovered the originals' files and reuploaded them, but altered the audio in one of those two, his review of the Microwave Crisp Maker, claiming that the music used had copyright issues.

It is rumored that the Ashenthology 1 DVD contains the original version, however, the DVD was a limited release, with no plans to sell again. Currently there are no known mirrors online of the original clip.

UPDATE FEB. 27th, 2015: Holy cow, the original version's finally been recovered! Special thanks to a random contributor! Watch it here...

UPDATE FEB. 23rd, 2017 (Not added until OCT. 15th, 2018): In 2017 Youtuber SpooferJahk has uploaded a better quality version of the video with the original audio (ripped from the Ashenthology DVD with not only much better picture and sound quality than the 2015 upload but also the edited 2014 version from Ashens himself. It also includes a longer version of the outtake from the 2014 upload) So this is completely found media and in the best quality that is available. It is fitting because 2017 is also the videos 10th anniversary.
