We should all be so lucky as to find some costume that makes us happy to wear in our backyard while vlogging in this world. That being said, I’m pretty sure you cannot put on an elaborate silken Mad Hatter costume a propos of nothing in the middle of September, replete with heavy face makeup that you readily announce was applied by your aunt, and then complain that people think you are gay. I mean, the reality is that’s not a thing that gay people do as far as I know. I don’t know any gay people who ask their aunts to help with their Mad Hatter makeup because they need it to be perfect for a big vlog post coming up. And what gay dude even has time to dress like the Mad Hatter and vlog in the backyard when there are so many horse tranquilizers to take before having unprotected sex at a highway rest stop on the way to the fabric store for supplies to make one’s own window treatments?! (Yikes.) That being said, this definitely has a gay feel to it. It’s not even the costume (well, it’s kind of the costume) as much as it is how CopperCab sucks in his cheeks and mugs for the camera. Again, to clarify, I don’t think that CopperCab is necessarily gay, and I could care less, but I think we can all agree he has some very serious identity issues. I mean, isn’t that what this whole thing has been about from the very beginning? At the very least, his feigned surprise and pre-emptive self-defense does not help his case (which he should rest).

Of course, all of this is just speculation. I’m sure the whole thing will be cleared up by his upcoming rap video. (Thanks for the tip, Matt.)

  1. Rap, you say? I won’t bother looking for his record in the “soul” section, then…

  2. Coppercab is Fake and Bi-Curious.

  3. CopperCab is always keeping us on our toes.

  4. Rapping about cyberbullying is so cool right now

  5. Nope, sorry. It’s too early for this. Talk to me in a few hours, Copper Cap.

  6. I am pretty sure his neck is covered in hickies. It just is all too much for me to take in at once.

  7. Worst. Un-birthday. Ever.

  8. “I snook up behind and took his soul, he said something about having a soul, I was like, ‘Dude, you HAVE no soul’ and ran off”

  9. I think he was writing a rap about the “mad haters” that had a typo, and CopperCab is a laid back dude, so he just went with it.

  10. I need to watch it again and see if I can figure out how he feels about dub-step.

  11. For so long now people keep falsely assuming I’m dead, but now I know the simple solution is to set up a facebook group and say good morning every day. Easy. Thanks Boy George.

  12. I know what I will be having waking nightmares about today!!!!

  13. This has nothing to do with this post, but I made it last night and want to share it.

  14. “Relax.” –Burial.

  15. I’ve never seen Cabaret, but for some reason now I feel like I need to.

  16. You guys, Rupert Grint looks AWESOME!

  17. copper cab should totally be the mainstage attraction for the gathering 2011.

  18. Next to dubstep my favorite type of music is Pibroch.

  19. Here is picture for book.

  20. At first I was like…

    But then I was like…

  21. He kind of channels Kenny Powers and Phil Davison. Maybe he’s just just working on his Masters Degree in Communication.

  22. boy can smize.

  23. I am freaking out, guys. This feels like a close friend, or if not a close friend then at least a familiar acquaintance, like someone you see at work every day and can generally count on to nod at you as you pass in the hall, and you know he always wears his blue checked shirt on Fridays because one time while waiting in line at the snack machine he confided that the blue checked shirt is his least favorite shirt but by Friday he’s always running out of clean laundry, it’s like that guy doesn’t show up to work for three weeks and then one day he pops his head over your cubicle wall and he’s wearing CORPSE MAKEUP and WEARING A MAD HATTER HAT. And over the rushing sound in your ears from the stroke you are having at that moment, you can just barely hear him shout, “My aunt put this makeup on my face so DON’T THINK I’M GAY!!”

    Seriously, that’s what it’s like.

  24. I don’t think he understands exaggerated phrases. I think he reads, “Haven’t seen you in a while. Are you dead?” as “Haven’t seen you in a while. Glad you’re finally dead.”

  25. Can we please stop using the words “gay” to refer to homosexuals, and “retard” to refer to the mentally handicapped? I ask this not because I am offended, but because I really want what this guy is to be a “gay retard” and not have it offend anybody. I want the words “gay” and “retard” to refer to people (of any sexuality or mental capacity) like this guy, and not be derogatory to anyone else. Just this guy.

    Also, have we settled on a name for a man slut yet, because SO MANY HICKIES.

    • Maybe we can just stop using the word “gay” to refer to anything but homosexuals? That seems a bit easier, not to mention logical.

      • Hmm. . . logic. I see where you’re going with this.

        There’s just something about this guy that makes me want to do the opposite of what he’s yelling at me to do. Like call people names. When he yells “I’m not gay,” I want to say, “Yes you are. You are very gay. But you are not a homosexual because they are better than you.”

        Mebbe it’s best to just come up with another name to call him. Like – schmurgin. This guy is such a schmurgin. (No offense to any schmurgle people?)

    • In the literature it’s usually described as “mimbo” [cf. Seinfeld et al, 1992].

  26. Him and this guy need to collaborate for a dubstep video;

  27. I like that Gabe admits that he cares. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCUsPnKD1gk
    I hope I will not have to speak to you about this again.

  28. Notice how he decided to dress up as Tim Burton’s Mad Hatter, an ORANGE-HAIRED character. I think we can rightfully assume that he will be picking ginger characters to dress up as every year.

    What other ginger costumes are there?

    Ronald McDonald
    Bozo
    Pennywise
    Lucille Ball

    Monsters, please flesh out this list. I don’t want any more surprises.
