percolatin', hatin'

I'm torn. I love Zach Galifianakis. I dream of being his girlfriend. That way I can have the physical aesthetic I want (beard, unkempt hair, dirty sport coat) without having to bed down with an actual hobo. But this video. I think he'd be a really bad wedding date. And that's the measure of a man, really. Like death and genital reassignment surgery, weddings are one of those things we all have to go through. If you can't lighten up and adopt an attitude of "I am at a wedding. I am going to act silly so the next 5 hours aren't so shitty and horrible," then I'm not really going to want to be around you. And half-ass rocking out is so much worse than full-on rocking out. Either firebomb the place, take a shit on the floor, and flip the bird OR get down to your stocking feet and dance like you're Jackson #6 of the Jackson 5. Smirking and raising your eyebrow like you're the first person to figure out that the situation is stupid and embarrassing is easy comedy and makes you look like a smug prick.

Oh, I totally think he knew he was being taped. Like he's never seen 5 minutes of the Ellen show before? He's being a dick on purpose to show how much cooler he is than Ellen's audience. Which is saying so little, it actually has the reverse effect.

i think you guys are being a little harsh.

zach was probably in the "this is a job for me" zone and to see this depressing group of lemmings lip-syncing and gyrating (gyrating!) while waiting for the main act to roll out of her dressing room likely seemed sorta bewildering and stupid.

which it was.
