The idiots who stand on the street during The Today Show!

Published by at 3:30 am under Sucky TV,Why?!?

today show idiots

Does it make me a jerk who hates everything for despising these people or does it make me awesome? I’m assuming it’s the latter, in fact I’m sure of it.

These are the kind of people who travel all the way to New York from Crooked Boner, Tennessee only to spend their entire week in a 2 block radius surrounding Times Square. They pack sign-making supplies because they ain’t paying no New York prices and who knows if there even is a Wal-Mart in Manhattan! They eat at Chili’s every night and swear it tastes not as good as Chili’s in Crooked Boner but better than the Chili’s in Sickly Hollow.

The worst part is that they get up around 4am, when most New Yorkers are just eating dinner, just so they can stand on the street in the rain with the hopes that the camera might whiz past their “Sassy Moms Love Matt”┬ásign for 2 seconds. Luckily the good ol’ VCR is rolling back home to capture the magic!

    It just shows to go you. People will do anything to get on television. I believe it’s because many many many people out there think that if they can get on tv for a split second some produce/director out there will see them and say, “YES! That is the person I need in my next project, I must have them!” The sad part is that most of them don’t realize how fucking shitty they look on camera.
    Stop it camera whores! Stop it now!
    The SNL clip, super funny.

    I think its some sort of Middle age Midwest Women’s Birthday Mecca.
    “Well what do we have here? A women with a hat that looks like a chicken is sitting on her head! How Cleaver! Looks like you ran out of sharpy at the end of your “Lordy Lordy Brenda’s 40!” Sign, step it up people this is national TV. Don’t you have a Kinkos in whatever shithole your from?

    Yeah, America’s love affair with media & television in particular is disturbing, at best.

    And you know this will go down in their family history books as the height of their American Dream…

    uggh.

    I need to douche now, if only I had a vagina.

    You know what would liven this shit up? Waving politically divisive posters. Abortion could be a theme, with grisly photos of dismembered babies vs. blood-drenched wire hangers. Or Abu Ghraib/Gitmo torture photos vs. returning soldiers with limbs missing. That would add a needed jolt to the infotainment. I wonder how they keep that crowd in line. Are the people with political convictions to lazy to get up at four in the morning? Or are they just too embarrassed to be on the Today show in the pointless street crowd.

    Chili’s ad at the start of the SNL vid clip… how’s that for irony?
