It’s a faaaaaake!!! (It’s Reeeeeal!!!)

Tim Babb’s March Blog Madness: Day 20

Today, I went to see the Star Trek Exhibit at the Tech Museum in San Jose with my friends Stephanie and (friend of TANcast) Geoff. While the exhibit was fun, it leaves you a bit under whelmed if you’ve been to Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas (Still waiting for that to re-open, by the way…WTF Vegas?)

But while there, Geoff and I got to talking about Star Trek: Deep Space Nine..specifically the “acting style” of Captain Sisko, played by Avery Brooks. He was over the top in a way that might even make Shatner jealous. And that reminded me of the following mash up I’d seen on YouTube some time ago: (you will be tempted to fast forward…don’t…experience it in full, as it was intended)

I can’t quite tell you why I find that so funny…but, damn it, I do! First off, I enjoy watching Brooks crew the shit out of that scenery. Secondly, the way the remix kicks in only after it’s been on a loop for about a minute straight really tickles me. I was talking with Steph’s boyfriend today about that phenomenon of repeating something until it’s no longer funny…and then you keep repeating it until it’s funny again. I don’t know what that works but it truly is a way to make me laugh…and it’s real…it’s reeeeal! Don’t you understand?! IT’S REAL!!!!!!

    It’s a TRAP!!!

    Wait…that doesn’t sound right.

    And also, isn’t repeating something until it’s no longer funny, then continuing to repeat it how “Family Guy” has lasted these many years? 🙂

  5. Geoff Says:

    @Joe: Regarding Family Guy: that is correct.

  6. Dean Says:

    Right around the 2:00 mark, Brooks starts to sound like Chico Marx to me. “HEY, IT’S-A REEEAL!”

    Ha! I totally described this to my wife in an “Andy Story” way. For some reason I had to summarize the plot of the two episodes being mashed up before I described this clip.

    My wife may never listen to a story of mine again.

    Tim, could you give a link to the rest of the episode of the guy saying it’s a fake? It piqued my interest.
