When Oliver and I come up with an idea for a supercut (like his drag quiz from this morning), it’s usually something we discuss over moonshine while we shoot squirrels off our yard car. Nerve on the other hand, recently put together this ode to pretty women falling down, and apparently based it on a quote from the New Yorker. Well la di dah, Professor Cityboy. Around here, that’s the kinda fancy falutin’ that’ll get you pecker-whacked with squirrel bats. (*spits dip into Gatorade bottle, leans back against truck hitch*)
“‘To make a woman adorable,’ one female sucessful screenwriter says, ‘you have to defeat her at the beginning… It’s as simple as making the girl cry, fifteen minutes into the movie.’ Relatability is based on vulnerability, which creates likeability. With male characters, smoking pot, getting drunk, and lying around watching porn is likeable; with females, the same conduct is hateful. So funny women must not only be gorgeous; they must fall down and then sob, knowing it’s all their fault.” — Tad Friend in The New Yorker, April 11, 2011
It looks like Cameron Diaz smokes pot and gets drunk plenty in Bad Teacher, but I suppose that’s not out yet. Anyway, cool supercut. Though I would’ve called it “Bitches Be Trippin’, Yo.”
