Default Intro to disc golf video for non disc golfer

When I talk about disc golf to non disc golfers I get a lot of quizzical looks. Somehow my words just don't do it justice.

What is one video I can e-mail people that is a great intro to the sport of disc golf?

Video should be:

1. Good quality (clear, not shaky)
2. Have mix of terrain (water shots, wooded, parks)
3. Good and bad shots (bad shots should be treated humorously)
4. Lighthearted ("fun video" not serious professional athlete video)
5. Mix of types of shots (tee, fairway, approach, and putt)

I'm looking for a video that will inspire the reply of "Wow, that looks pretty fun. When can you bring me out and let me try it?"

Most videos seem to only encapsulate one or two of the above.

This video is close. But the quality isn't good and the editing isn't that great for a good "Intro to disc golf". The players obviously aren't too high in caliber but they sure are having a good time.

Try to find an instructional video where the star of the show actually uses a script instead of just going off the top of his head should be the goal. I have lost count of the videos I've seen (a good example is the blow through or not video from yesterday) where the host is talking about disc golf and gets ahead of himself, or quotes non-rules rules, or my biggest pet peeve - when they describe a type of throw and give it a name that's not correct (example: throwing an upsidedown thumber and calling it a "Scooby" - just because it sounds cool).
