Find Me On:
This topic indirectly led me to his NBC promo for this year’s awards. Yikes! That grin, those huge photos of Depp/Jolie…yech!
No doubt this displays shocking ignorance, but what show is that and how can I watch every episode immediately?
Yeah, A+ throwing in those subtle Leno digs. Who then, true to form, responded with a fat joke (“Did you thank your personal trainer for NOT working you out?). You got him, Jay!
Eh, I thought it was one of the worst episodes of the season (but it’s been a pretty strong season, so that’s okay). Katy Perry was fine, but I almost would have preferred her to be hilariously awful than just kind of boring. She was a good sport about everything she was in, but never really seemed to go for broke with the impressions or characters.
Oh well. Next week Jimmy Fallon!!
Not to be a stickler about this INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT topic, but the original Rebecca Black video probably had 20 times as many “dislikes” before she took it down and uploaded the new one on her account a few months ago. Rebecca Black For the…Win? Loss? They’re both just terrible?
This, but leave out the “Kool-aid” bit.
Ha! I was thinking Big Freedia, or even Katey Red. These are the real superheroes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8ZeYslcGNg

The Adele sketch was amazing! Really just one simple joke, but the concept itself was so dead-on that all it needed to do was not get in its own way. Incidentally, it’s streaming in the full-episode stream on Hulu (near the end).
The related videos Bing is providing for this post are upsetting.
That second girl is there to take Em’s verses. Two peas and a tripod!
(If you got that last part…sorry. I’ll escort myself to jail.)
Truly, Johnny Depp is OUR generation’s Hank Williams Jr.
I think it’s a little more nuanced than that. African-Americans have a different cultural history than just People of African Descent in White Cultures generally. In particular, “blackface” as a cultural construct came straight from America. If you had no idea of the history of blackface performance you were linking yourself to, it would be less offensive than someone who appropriated that tradition deliberately. There’s a difference between “painting yourself black” and “going in blackface.”. As Gabe pointed out, both are absolutely unacceptable, but one is racist and the other just astoundingly ignorant.
Point being, the fact that they’re Canadian does explain how they could just be ignorant of what they were doing, which would be a hard excuse to buy from anywhere in (most parts of) America.
I’d just like to point out that the same YouTube uploader also offers this gem from the 2008 election.
You know what it doesn’t work on? “Zach Galifianakis.” You end up in an endless loop between “telecommunication” and “transmission.”
Otherwise, though, yeah. This is amazing.
