Elder Ford (Spencer's MTC Comp)

So I spent a few hours putting this little beast together - Spence sent me all his media, so I've been combining it in meaningful ways. The video is a clip of one of Spencer's audio recordings, to which I've added visuals :) The following quote is from a letter Spencer sent me a few weeks ago. It helps enhance the reason behind the whole thing. Enjoy!
"My companion Elder Ford is the funniest dude ever! Its hard to explain his humor. Its extremely different. For instance, Elder Manwearing has this girlfriend, and the first day we were here he was telling us about her & Elder Ford (mr. quiet) having never seen (Manwearing's) gf just says to him straight up in the middle of Manwearing's sentence, "I bet she's gonna be fat when you get back." and since then every time he (Manwearing) brings her up Elder Ford says in all seriousness something about how fat & ugly she's gonna be when he gets back. Its freaking hilarious. And sometimes he (Elder Ford) and Elder Tatiapu (this big samoan kid) get into these arguments and just throw out the most random disses at each other. Its hilarious cuz they're both calm about it but it goes on for like 10 minutes. You kinda have to experience it to understand why its funny, but I promise its super funny. He's just blunt to the max. Like he just says to Elder Cole one day that he's going to Outer Darkness. For no reason. It was great. The he just randomly goes up to the board and draws out the different kingdoms and assigns each Elder in the district to a kingdom & he and I were the only ones in the Celestial & Elder Cole was the only one in Outer Darkness. He has nothing against Elder Cole. Everyone loves Elder Cole, but Elder Ford is just random as heck and its the funniest thing ever." - Elder Spencer Henze
