Tried the Pentax 18-55 kit lens as a macro on the G9

Okay, so I tried to adapt the Pentax 18-55 kit lens as a macro lens on the Panasonic G9.

I first put a small piece of paper into the aperture lever space so that it would be almost wide open---maybe stopped down 1-2 stops.

Then I attached it to a Pentax K to micro four thirds adapter. The adapter does not control auto-aperture lenses so that's why I used the paper.

Finally I put the whole setup on an extension tube. The clips in this video from 00:00-00:28 are taken with this setup:
