We should buy more K-Swiss, you guys:

On the first day that Max and I were in San Diego for Comic-Con we were walking down the street when we heard excited screaming and shouting up on the next block. We figured this was just the kind of thing two journalists such as ourselves should go check out. But when we got to the corner, all we found were a bunch of fat dudes dressed up in cheap David Hasselhoff wigs driving fake Knight Rider cars in front of a double-decker “David Hasselhoff Party Bus” emblazoned with a giant ad for his stupid new reality show. On top of the party bus were a bunch of bored looking booth babes wearing Baywatch costumes, and also a couple of them wearing, like, 60s-era hippie costumes for some reason? Anyway, Max and I were super-annoyed at this point (not that you could ever tell from anything we ever wrote about Comic-Con) that we lived in a world where people would go crazy for an advertisement about a stupid reality show that no one should care about. And then TWO FEET behind the David Hasselhoff party bus advertisement we saw a pickup truck carrying Kenny Powers’s jetski with a cardboard cut-out of Danny McBride lounging on the seat, and we were like “that’s awesome!” So I guess what I am trying to say is that advertisements are really annoying and condescending and insufferable, unless you like what is being advertised, in which case aren’t they so clever and appealing. Whoops, there’s the boring bell. Read boring chapters 4-100. There will be a boring test. (Via DailyWhat.)

  1. Having the lady and Kenny both wearing the shoes in bed was a stroke of genius. Kenny Powers may be brash, but he could take Don Draper to school.

  2. Nike’s fucking out. K-Swiss: You’re fuckin’ in.

  3. Hey Gabe, you mentioned Comic Con, and they mentioned bukake in the video, which reminded me of a term I coined a couple years back for all the fanboys that surround scantily-clad superhero ladies in costume and snap endless pictures (they’re all there because they all love it).

    FANBOY-KAKE.

    You’re welcome?

  4. Kenny Powers could sell ice to a fuckin’ Eskimo. Move over, J.R. “Bob” Dobbs, and watch how it’s done.

  5. I’ve never watched Eastbound and Down, but if the guy with the orange shirt is in it, then I think I need to get started. To the Netflix-mobile!

  6. JK Swiss

  7. I just got very, very excited for Season 2 of Eastbound…

    One ticket to CaliPornia!!!

    • I by contrast got very excited to re-watch all my VHS tapes of Arliss I made (and maybe that show with jay moore)! I love sports negotiation comedies!

  8. This might be as clever as Joaqin Phoenix going undercover for a year to find himself… but seriously you know the feeling you get after you’ve been rick-rolled? This video just did it.

    I’m going to buy some K-Swiss, see you guys later.
