The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

Jeff Makes Hilarious Fake Media Wave Commercial, Humiliates Customer, Entertains Me

It’s no secret that Jeff likes to get crunked up. Hell, we all do, from time to time. That is, if any of us knew what the fuck “crunked up” meant. (Although I did hear Cee-Lo’s daughter say it a few times on that disgusting episode of “Sweet 16.”) Anyway, I took this crunking into consideration when I walked into the video store today after school to see Jeff wearing a cut out of Lil’ Jon on his shirt. What I’m getting at here is that it didn’t really strike me as being too out of the ordinary, especially for Jeff.

Anyway… Chris walks up and he’s got a cut-out of Snoop Dogg on his shirt, which reminded me of the one funny thing Chris and Jeff have concocted together: a version of Snoop’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” only this time to fit Media Wave’s return policy: “Drop It In the Slot.”

Then, Jeff gets all excited, which is extremely frightening sometimes due to his size, and yells at Chris to “show me the video.” Then Chris whips out his little spy-cam and shows me.

The video:
In walks one of our most loyal and weirdest customers, Dave C. This guy is roughly shaped like an overstuffed eggplant, an overstuffed eggplant with an even weirder satellite of a head on top of that egg plant. He used to be involved in technology development, although how long ago we have no idea. Now he fixes peoples computers and lives in a shanty in Bridgeport. He thinks he knows everything about everything, and will say things like this (no joke): “We have the capacity for time travel, we just haven’t harnessed the sun’s energy yet.”

Um, right.

So, he walks in carrying a DVD. Then Jeff walks into frame. “Hey, Dave,” says Jeff. Then, egg-shaped Dave C. says, “Hey man, just drop it in the slot, drop it in the slot, drop it in the slot,” completely off key and painful. Dave C. will not be our next American Idol, that’s for fuck sure.

THEN THEY DO THIS THREE TIMES. They were making a weird little mini-commercial using one of our most bizarre customers. It was truly one of the weirdest things I have ever seen go on inside the hallowed walls of Media Wave that Jordan and I haven’t been personally responsible for.

Jordan, you have to see this video… So fucking weird…
