Video shows you how to actually tie a bow tie

(CBS News) It has been almost a year ago since I was given a hand-crafted bow tie as a present from a good friend. The only problem? I have no clue how to actually tie a bow tie. I even tried to look up and watch some videos. And then I saw the above video and finally learned. Check it out.

The major problem I've personally run into with any video that tries to teach you how to tie a bow tie is that the hands of the person demonstrating always manage to get in the way of the process. By using stop-motion, this video by YouTube user TheHillSideOfficial, manages to show the process in a way I can fully understand and emulate. Thank you so very much for this informative demonstration that will finally give me the chance to be cool just like Doctor Who and wear a bow tie out and about.
