An awkward and embarrassing juxtaposition of two liturgies

[Disclaimer: Rules 7-9]

Undoubtedly this video is 'self-serving,' 'heavy-handed,' and even (in its closing declaration) 'over-the-top.' Yet it clearly makes a fair point precisely by awkwardly juxtaposing sequences from the Ordinary and Extraordinary forms of the Latin Rite -- sequences in which adherents of each form (for better or worse) will readily recognize what is their own and what is alien to it. Amusing. Maddening. There it is. (Skip the first 12 seconds.)
