Parker Lewis and Bud Bundy lose what's left of their dignity - VIDEO
In a move that is sure to please lovers of both so-good-it's-bad ironic entertainment and cautionary Hollywood tales, the AV Club is reporting that noted d-bag author of The Game, Neil Strauss, has released this set of promotional videos. In them, David Faustino and Corin Nemec team up to show just how good Strauss's method for picking up chicks is by challenging each other to a "who can get the most telephone numbers" contest. A sample (NSFW) video after the jump...
Now, before you watch this, there are a few warnings I have to get out of the way. The following people should not watch this video:
1) If you're easily offended. In the one I've selected to share, David is wearing an (ahem) artificial male member on his forehead. The surface message of that particular artistic choice (namely, that even a d*ckhead can scam girls using Strauss's method) isn't missed by its creators as the word d*ckhead features prominently in the video's title. The larger, more subtle message about the types of people that would actually buy into Strauss's method is, presumably, not thought about much.
2) If you're one of the following people: Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan, Simone de Beauvoir, Gloria Steinem, Andrea Dworkin, Camile Paglia, or Naomi Wolf. I could be wrong, but I get the feeling that this video might might you a tad bit angry.
3) If you're currently the parent of a child who is starring in a sitcom. Sure the Porsche that your child "bought" you in exchange for your "managerial advice" is fun to drive now, but this video will probably serve as a chilling portrayal of the Ghost of Christmas Future.
The rest of you, enjoy. And remember, teacher says every time a former child star falls into a desperate money-grab, an Angel gets his wings:
