@2:02 — That cat is so stoned it’s not even funny.

Been having a lot of very realistic dreams lately - like recently I was on a plane, and in the dream we had landed and I was deplaning etc … chatting with people behind me and what not. Woke up and was like “Dammit! An hour left???”

This is the reverse … something so weird I think I might be dreaming.

I like how even the cat questions the lyrics at some points.

I’m surprised at how ‘not-horrible’ the music is, fully expecting the usual “high school science teacher tries to rap” bit, but that rapping Ronald McDonald Lion-clown has an OK sense of rhythm and flow.

The dubbing sounds, to this white American, more like Caribbeans-in-England.


But no matter how you dub it, it’s wack.

And at some point, they stopped making the videos, and creepy clowns started showing up in South Carolina. Causation or correlation? :thinking:

I stopped break-dancing in front of mall escalators a while ago. Attracted the wrong crowd.


#11

Yeah seriously, like wth?

There’s no such thing as an escalator. It’s an accelerated stairway that lazy people stand still on, but as long they stand to the side so I can pass them, it’s all good.

I’d love to see the video where that cat meets the drunk japanese businessman:


#14

Okay, I just watched an eight-minute video. May I please get on the escalator now?

The rent-a-cop would have taken so much less time.


#15

What’s with the accents? The little Hispanic girl is Scottish and the cop is German or something? And then Ronald McFriskies, nobody knows, some kind of Felidae-American?


#16

That mall cop starred as a protagonist in the 1987 horror film, Dolls!


#17

We had some very good drugs back in those days.
