Okay, so this video has been circulating for the past few days, and was quite the hit in the office last week. I would like to take this time to analyze this piece as I think it gives great insight to Americans.
1) We will do anything for money. Or tv. Or fame. It’s sick and pathetic, but it’s true. We will even try to sling shot watermelons at the knights in shining armor we all are desperately seeking.
2) We’re optimistic. “I have a massive headache.” Sweetheart, that’s not the only problem you’re about to have. But props to you for focusing on a headache instead of the potential of internal (and external) bleeding.
3) We’re tough. Watch the clip again if you disagree.
4) We speak before we think. Otherwise, how else do you explain the “You have to keep going” line? I mean, homegirl just took a fruit that a comedian made a living smashing with a hammer STRAIGHT TO HER FACE. Keep going isn’t even an option.
But it’s true, they don’t call it the amazing race for anything, so keep trucking, even when a watermelon comes smashing across your face.
