It will be fun for this kid when he hits that age where you actually start understanding all of the lyrics you misinterpreted as a child (I’m pretty sure most of us can relate to this feeling. Mass appeal!) I had a lot of these epiphanies when in my teens I heard the ’80s pop songs from my childhood. But, unlike this kid, I didn’t have a video documenting the lyrics I THOUGHT were correct. For that reason, he will have extra fun in 12 years or so.
Can we talk about the production value of the video? It looked pretty good. I mean, it wasn’t perfect, but it was impressive. To be honest–and I could be totally wrong here–the change in quality between “The Baddest” and this video makes me think that someone in The Industry (maybe just a low-level someone, but SOMEONE nonetheless) took an interest in making Kreme a YouTube sensation. I liked the video, and I like that Krispy K is being creative and having fun, but I feel like video one might have a corporate fingerprint on it. But that just means that maybe KK isn’t lying anymore about making money, which is great for him. Keep following your dreams, kid, and maybe someday you’ll end up like your hero Tupac!
I like the part where he’s holding my favorite brand of vinegar and pretending it’s alcohol.
“…attempting to land on a fairly modest pile of the foam cubes they use at, like, fancy skatepark camps.” HAHAHAHA! As a kid, I always wanted to go to a fancy skatepark camp. But my family is just middle class, and FANCY skatepark camps are reserved for upper-middle class kids whose parents are trying to stay hip. So my skatepark camp was just my little brother, a neighborhood kid, and I all taking turns on one ramp someone’s dad made.
McKay Hatch goes to BYU-Idaho, which is even more uptight than BYU-Provo. Students there are not allowed to wear shorts or sandals. You would think only Liz Lemon would willingly go to a school that outlaws sandals.
All of my wives and I are offended by your comment.
One of my facebook friends said the gal lied about her weight, and that’s what caused the problem. I don’t know if that’s true. Does anyone know? Even if she did lie about her weight, this is still terrifying, and it makes me weird about that one time I did go bungee jumping.
I love a good Brigham Young University joke–absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE. Nevertheless, I’d like to point out–as someone who grew up 10 minutes from BYU–that I only had one friend growing up that read the Left Behind books. Ironically, that friend was the first of my friends to admit he’s atheist…right before he started going to church to get cheaper tuition at BYU. Oh, the tangled webs, right?
I wasn’t trying to be a dick! It’s nice when things you like are making money. Geeeeeez.
Yeah. How did we all forget about Archer? It’s the best show for word play and cartoon asses on TV right now.
Speaking of corporate stuff, there are a few new ads on the site. Congratulations on that! Looks like Gabe might be able to buy that dream house after all, courtesy of Dream House.
Forget the execution stats–I want to know how many people have been killed by the pollution caused by Perry’s smug.
Is that gadget from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind ready yet so we can all erase this?
It’s insensitive for you to think that a fairy godmother can’t be both a good parent AND a reliable source of trinket income.
I’m impressed he kept the wings intact through the murder and the process of preservation. Them shits are delicate. I’d imagine that with digits nimble enough to pull that off, this unemployed 22 year old could find some work doing frosting art at a bakery.
I know I’m so late to the party, and that Aaron Carter’s parents have already come home, accompanied by a record scratch sound effect, but I just had to post this gif of Shaq at his humblest: http://tinypic.com/r/29bfzp4/7
Unfortunately, this cancellation won’t mean we will stop seeing bad puns on the title of the show when girls named Kate make a facebook even for their wedding. Has anybody else seen these, or is it just a Utah thing?
I think this scene is a great example of how Louie (the show and the man) experiments with tone in ways other TV comedies don’t and succeeds as a result. Even other slightly artsy or high brow-ish shows like 30 Rock don’t sit and meditate on moods like this scene did. I’m not trying to diminish 30 Rock–because part of its appeal is its restlessness–but I just think it’s admirable and fresh in a way that Louie doesn’t just throw in as many jokes as possible in 22 minutes. Instead, the show will make you sit through a pretty long lip sync/car ride bit or a wordless scene that juxtaposes an angelic violinist with America’s next top hobo. The show just takes its time to build these moods and tones, and then there are some jokes that creep in, too, and play on what the audience is already feeling.
Also, can I just mention that “I love you / you wreck me” speech from episode 6? Crimeny.
I think the hot dog crust thing is over. That doesn’t mean Koreans have stopped having fun with their pizza, though: http://www.pizzaetang.com/menu/pizza_01.asp
I was watching the paparazzi at the end and just thinking of how they must feel knowing they have to be annoying and intrusive to get a good shot. I know that being annoying and intrusive is required for the job, but I started thinking how funny it might be to see a series of photos taken by a very passive and polite paparazzo or maybe to watch said paparazzo in action during a big red carpet moment. “Oh, sorry. Am I in your shot? Darnit! I keep telling myself, ‘You can’t get in other photographers’ shots if you want to make friends in the biz.’ Again, so sorry.”
I thought of doing a Buster-style “get her out of here” freak out, but pearls before swine or whatever.
I tried to find the source by googling “annie’s boobs community” but all I found were pictures of a monkey.
