I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but Lena has never seen E.T.. While I certainly consider it to be a failing on my part for not having properly introduced what could be considered elements of common American culture to my partner and spouse, I consider it to be more of a failing on her part.
The first video today is a preview for the (fake) sequel to E.T.. It is pretty damn well put together, and I think everyone will appreciate it.
Everyone except for Lena, that is.
Video number two is an unabashed ad for a video game, but it is one which I will almost certainly be playing soon. (Feel free to make fun, I don’t mind.) I’ve always dug the Sims, and I’ve also always downloaded all the castle and medieval looking skins I could find, enjoying the anachronistic overview of my castles and stone buildings amongst the suburban landscapes. But this really is the game I’ve been wanting to play.
Today’s final video is of a child beauty contestant who made it to the View morning talk show after being featured on Toddlers and Tiaras. The whole thing is very slightly slowed down to give the appearance of, as the title says, a drunken dwarf slurring her way through the musical number. However, this is not where the real comedy in this short lies. Watch instead the faces of the hosts as they start out clapping and wiggling to the beat, and end up repulsed and horrified by the spectacle.
