A Little Something to Make Your Wednesday

This is the weirdest thing I’ve seen since the Japanese Yatta Yatta video — which is saying a lot, since that one featured half-naked Japanese comedians wearing nothing but giant green leaf loincloths. Today from Asia, we have a group of Chinese senior citizens enthusiastically covering Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” accompanied by young girls in short skirts and white go-go boots playing traditional Chinese instruments made of glass. No, I don’t get it either, but hey, it made me chuckle on a hectic day of pre-production, and maybe it will make your day too. I’ll warn you, though … once seen, it cannot be unseen. You’re welcome.

P.S. Just in case you’ve never seen Yatta Yatta, I’m including it below for your listening and viewing pleasure. Consider it a free bonus gift to get you through your humpday. There’s some folks in this industry that I like to imagine covering this song while wearing the green leaf loincloths, when I’m having a particularly irritating day. Try it yourself … it’ll make you smile, though you may have a hard time looking those folks in the eye next time you see them.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
