The Internet

Political Thoughts

A couple of summers ago, my friend Slacks Fitwell developed a habit of staying up late to prank call C-SPAN. He’d post them on facebook and twitter and about five of us would RT aggressively to the same 40 followers who’d already seen the link and we had lots of fun. Then, shortly before school started, the prank calls were miraculously combined by an anonymous My Damn Channel employee into this video we found on Slacktory:

I was ecstatic. He’d been discovered by the masses through the power of the internet. Slacktory is like, a legimate, funny website. That people read. Shit was basically viral. Slacks would be famous in no time and I’d get to watch and smile and say “I was there” sometimes if/when the subject was discussed.

Well, a couple months ago I learned that one of our friends, who was interning at My Damn Channel at the time, made the video. “So you can blame me for the bad sound quality,” he said.

HELLO THAT IS SO NOT THE POINT. I THOUGHT WE (HE) WERE (WAS) GOING TO GET FAMOUS ANY SECOND NOW.

So now it’s my job to spread the word about his hilarity and make shameless plugs for you guys to watch my friend’s stuff.
