One of the nice parts about slow news days is that it frees us up to talk about some of the more offbeat, weird stuff on the periphery of the TV world. And nothing — NOTHING — is more weird and offbeat than the wonderfully insane videos that Taiwanese animators make about current events. I could watch them every day. So, when they put out a video recreating the Alec Baldwin airplane fiasco, I quickly put aside dumb stories about Rosie O’Donnell yelling at David Letterman and Hulk Hogan suing his wife for defamation and put this post together.
While the whole video is a treat, my favorite part is the depiction of Baldwin deactivating his Twitter account. He rides down a city street standing atop a tank and wearing a military helmet and a sash that says “MAYOR,” runs over numerous members of the press, and shoots a billboard displaying the controversial tweet with the tank’s gun. If this was how you actually deactivated your Twitter account, I swear to God I would do it ten times a day. Maybe more. There’s no way to tell how mad I’d go with mayoral tank power. I might just start deactivating other people’s accounts, too. People would beg me for leniency and then I’d find out their Twitter bio said something moronic like “I tell it like it is n if u don’t like thats UR PROBLEM LOL” and I would just explode their sh-t all over the sidewalk. It would be chaos. None of you would be safe.
In summation, I would like one (1) tank for Christmas. Thank you.
